Deborah created this course because of her love of the modality; Deborah loves all the healing modalities which she is qualified and experienced in and it is her dream to help as many people around the world to learn and apply the differing modalities to their own health and well-being.  

Deborahs' expanded version of this dream is for those students who take these training courses will go onto apply these skills to aid the health and well-being of other people in their family, friendship circles and the wider communities in which students live.  As global health systems come under greater pressure there is a greater need for these healing modalities; they do not replace but support medical care yet conversely used regularly can optimise a persons health.

Are you interested in learning natural ways to improve your health and wellness? Reiki is an ancient, energy healing system rediscovered by Dr Usui.  It was after he had read ancient sanskrit texts, meditated, prayed, fasted and chanted the secrets of Reiki were unlocked; he was attuned to Reiki and the sacred Reiki symbols came to him in orbs of light. Reiki has become an international healing system and is available to everyone; there are various approaches to Reiki and I share traditional Reiki. 

There are three demonstration exercises for students to learn and practice; Byosen, unblocking one meridian channel and meditation.

As an introductory course the intention is to help students decide if Reiki is for them.  Students will have lifetime access to all course materials.  There are short videos that give you a basic foundation of Reiki, there is meditation to help you relax and feel energy flowing, and a pdf document to supplement this level of learning. 

Deborah offers a slow, quiet pace to sharing her knowledge and skills.  She has a quiet voice that brings inner calm and is deliberate - we live in a fast pace, hectic and often chaotic world, slowing down, quieting and stilling are vitally important approaches to beginning to unravel the tension that leads to stress and dis-ease.  So if a slow, calm, quieter pace is for you then this is the place to be.

  • Gaining a basic understanding of Reiki

What is Reiki and what it is not?  A brief overview of this therap.  Sometimes people think it is a religion, a cult or some kind of weird made up therapy.  People sometimes think it is just heat, or a weird sensation.  And sometimes people think this therapy will replace medical enquiry, investigation and treatment.  So we get clear about some mis-conceptions.

Holistic therapist, Reiki Master teacher, Course instructor

I believe that as the worlds health care systems come under ever greater pressure, and the medicines to treat illness become ever more expensive, and that their side-effects can and do cause more harm than good, that a new way of treating illness and disease is to be found in the old and ancient ways of the past, referred to by some as 'quackery' .  I have a vision, a dream, of helping as many  of my fellow human beings, people around the world, through this medium of Udemy, to learn and empower themselves with holistic therapy tools that can aid the healing of mind, body and Spirit; this is truly liberating and taking back responsibility of our own health, well-being and gives us more choices.  I believe our physical ailments are our soul crying out to be heard, to be healed - we are provided early warning signs and we must learn how to hear and interpret these. 

It was the late 1990s when Deborah began her journey of the healing arts.  She took studies Body Massage, Aromatherapy, Indian head massage, Reflexology, Hot stone therapy, Hopi ear candling, and many more courses.  It was during this time that Deborah was attuned to Reiki and experienced a deep Spiritual awakening; intuition and sensitive to energy Deborah can well detect a persons inner motives.  

Deborah loves nature and in her spare time will record videos of local natural habitats and upload these into the Reiki support group she has created to supplement student experience; there is often distance healing too.

Deborah digressed into nursing which provided many, many opportunities for learning and although this was not her path found Reiki to be deeply calming and supportive for elderly people with Dementias, and people with mental illness type issues.  Deborah has worked with traumatised souls infusing Reiki into her time with them.  

Deborah is the Director of Calm Oasis School of Reiki, a Usui Reiki Master, Practitioner and teacher.  Deborah holds Diplomas in the various therapies she practices and teaches along with her Reiki degrees certifications.  Deborah is also registered and a holds membership with the Guild of Holistic therapists. 

Deborah's courses are designed to meet the UK national occupational standards and core skills curriculum and so provide students skills that can provide employment. Deborah really wants to help you achieve your dreams and aspirations. Udemy is the ideal platforms for this as it allows lifetime access to affordable courses that are accessible worldwide and 24 hours a day... how much better can it get?

Deborah is dedicated to sharing healing gifts of Reiki and each Tuesday evening shares Reiki distance healing in her free facebook group; this is a free healing to all who wish to join and recieve.  Deborah is mindful of the suffering experienced by people in war torn zones and the conflicts of humaity and so during these weekly sessions expends Reiki to those areas too with the soul intention that those who wish to recieve do so freely with purity of love and deep compassion.
