To train in Sei-ki is to take on the task of learning this art as a personal discipline, much as you would with a martial art like aikido.  Two or more workshops a year or an intensive will greatly assist you in this. 

LiR offers workshops in the UK and Internationally. See below.

“Alice is very clear and precise in her work and obviously can look back on decades of experience that led to a deep understanding of the art of touch. I recently participated in a Seiki-workshop and was able to take my work to a higher level. Learning Seiki isn’t straight forward. You go around corners quite a bit and need to learn to read between the lines. We practised that a lot and her feedback helped me become more aware of what I’m doing on the one hand and also become more confident with my touch on the other hand. I highly recommend her work for anyone who wants to dive into the Mystery of the authentic, energetic bodywork called Seiki-Shiatsu”

            “One’s life is conducted by one’s spirit…a treatment has to move the spirit to restore wellbeing…In creating a quiet space through a quiet mind and body, illumination comes…The spirit moves because the environment of the space encourages it to be moved….Well-rooted presence and virtue of the practitioner are key to this environment. Close windows and shut doors to create a space that is calm and quiet enough for concentration, so you can promote a relationship of unity between your spirit and the patient.”

            –Ling Shu (1,8,9) and Su Wen (27)
