If you want to take your Reiki to a new level, then this course is for you ! The Reiki Drum technique is a new technique that has been brought back to England from America.
This technique of combining Reiki with Shamanic Drumming originated with Michael Arthur Baird, a Reiki Master/Teacher from the U.S.A, who runs the Infinite Light Healing Studies Centre in Sedona, Arizona with his wife, Laurelle Shanti Gaia. He is a licensed Reiki Master Teacher with the International Centre for Reiki Training, and a member of the Sound Healers Association.

Drumming for healing and meditation is an ancient practice. In tribal cultures, the power of sound over the body and spirit is well-known, and now in the western world there is research supporting this – making this ancient wisdom more palatable to modern minds. Research shows that brain activity is affected by drumming, and there are studies showing how the sounds of a drum can help with illness and emotional trauma. Group drumming has been linked with improving the immune system, helping Alzheimer’s patients, building self- esteem, and supporting recovering drug addicts and alcoholics. These studies are hinting at what has been known by shamanic practitioners over the ages, and shamans today still know as they practice what is often known as medicine drumming.
Reiki Drum practitioners use the drum to introduce Reiki into the client’s body, shifting blockages and rebalancing the energy field. The bringing together of these two systems means that the energy of the drum becomes gentle, protective and works for the highest good of the client just as in a normal Reiki treatment.
The Reiki Drum 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 workshop, and find it a profound experience of personal, spiritual development and deep healing. Also you need to have completed your Reiki two.
The workshop takes place over 2 days and costs £250. This price includes the drum, the manual and the certificate.
Following this course, you can do a Reiki Drum Teacher course, enabling you to teach Reiki Drum Practice : this course is a follow-up one day course, which can be done after completion of 24 case-studies. Cost : £100 including manual and certificate.
