Reiki & Seichem Level 1 Course

What is Reiki?

At the end of the 19th century a healing method was rediscovered in ancient Sanskrit texts by a Japanese scholar, Mikaomi Usui. He called it Reiki (pronounced ray-key) a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy. Reiki has no association with religion, faith or belief systems, and can be received by anyone who is willing to be healed.

When energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us and we experience a sense of well being. Reiki works at bringing us into balance and reinforces the body’s natural ability to heal itself at all levels.

What is Seichem?

Seichem (pronounced say-keem) works in the same way as Reiki, with hands placed on the body, but in addition hands may be working in the aura which surrounds the body. It is reputedly one of the healing arts practised in ancient Egypt. Reiki is one of the four elemental rays which make up Seichem - earth (Reiki), water, air and fire.

Seichem was rediscovered in 1980 by Patrick Zeigler while he was visiting Egypt and after spending the night in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid.

Seichem connects with our higher selves to establish healing in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. The energy is used to heal and stimulate personal development and growth. Spellings of the word differ but it always means power in a spiritual sense.


Kathleen Milner brought the Seichem energy together with Reiki attunement procedures to develop the Tera-Mai healing system, incorporating new symbols that were revealed to her.

When you have been attuned to the first degree of Reiki & Seichem it will remain with you during your entire life (even if you stop practising) it cannot be reversed. Therefore, it is important that it is your decision to take the first-degree and not allow someone else to decide on your behalf.

The emphasise of this level is self-healing, using Reiki & Seichem to help friends and family and assist in your personal and spiritual growth.
