About the Reiki Drum Technique

reiki drumming distance elarningThe Reiki Drum Technique distance learning course is the fusion of Reiki and shamanic medicine drumming. Popular in the United States, (where it was formed by Michael Arthur Baird of the Infinite Light Healing Studies Centre, and is known as Reiki Drumming TM) it is still very new to the UK.

The technique is broken down into three main types of session: the basic Reiki Drum healing, where the drum is used intuitively over the client’s body to deliver a deep healing treatment, followed by a hands-on Reiki session to fully integrate the work and ground the client; the mental/emotional reprogramming technique, where the intuitive drum treatment is combined with the use of powerful positive affirmations to support growth; and the Reiki Drum journey technique, where the practitioner uses the drum to take the client into a deep meditative state to receive insight, spiritual guidance and healing.

This is more than a professional development course. Much of the practical work is rooted in shamanic practices, and on this course you will experience several journeys and work on your own self healing. Many students find that they release blockages over the course of the weekend, and find it a profound experience of personal, spiritual development and deep healing.

“I wanted to merge both Reiki and Shamanism; I had been thinking about how to merge the different things I do and then saw the Reiki Drum Technique course on the Reiki Evolution website.

It ended up being the case studies that I enjoyed the most as I felt I gained most personally here in developing a very personal way of working with the Reiki Drum energies. I feel it has developed me as a therapist.

The activities in the modules were very well structured. Also the course isgood value especially as the drum was included in the price I paid.The training manual is well laid out with enough information that didn’t baffle me. But enough for me that I felt I was confident enough to do the exercises.

I thought the feedback you gave me was spot on Cathy. It was very insightful and helpful information that you emailed back and though I didn’t respond specifically to everything you sent me, I did take it all on board and I think this really helped me when I came to do the case studies.

I can’t think of anything I would change at this point to improve the course, as it worked very well for me so thank you Cathy! I have really felt the benefit of the course; it has helped me connect Reiki and Shamanism. It has helped me work more intuitively and to develop this further I have downloaded Reiki Synthesis from Reiki Evolution for some more tools to use and which I see is close to some of the Toltec Shamanism I have done in the past.”
