Reiki Classes & other workshops

The multiple empowerments (attunements) given as per Japanese tradition are only the beginning.  Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations in each level require at least 12 hours, which I break down into three 4-hour classes, Several  students have said, “Time flies in your classes“.  See details on my Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki kai page.

  A detailed manual for each level, which is a combination my Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in their classes, are included; the certificates reflect those of my Shihans. <click here for brief descriptions> 


One student after completing Shoden level wrote –“This was an amazing experience.  There is no judgements and I felt right at home.  Thank you so much! I will definitely be back.” Jessica

At this time I am offering Mindfulness Meditation thorugh RSU #12 Sheepscot Valley Adult Education each Wednesday mornings from 9:30 – 11:00 AM from Oct 2 thru November 20, 2019.   


November’s Koryukai (gathering) is Sunday November 17; 12;30 -2:30 PM   This is a time to step away from the wows of the world, be surrounded by those who practice Usui Reiki Ryoho, receive the Japanese technique from me to keep your pathway clean so that Usui Reiki flows purely, take part in Shudan Reiki-ho where each one has the opportunity to receive Usui Reiki flowing from all present and practice allowing to flow to others.  It is nice to be among others who think as you do about the wonderment of an actual piece of universal energy, and share any thoughts you might have.  In the opening Mawashi you can feel the oneness as talked about in classes.  It is only two hours, but is nourishing for your mind, body and spirit and one of the best things you can do for your wellbeing.  All who have competed any level of in any style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho are welcomed.   A $10 donation is asked.


The second level’s meaning is deeper teachings.  Once you have completed Shoden (level one) and have practiced exercises enough so that Byosen Reikan-ho comes naturally to you, then you are ready to move deeper into this beautiful spiritual practice.   The symbols Usui Sensei created are introduced to expand your awareness of all contained in this piece of universal energy and use as training wheels if needed.  The main focus in this level is allowing Usui Reiki to flow over time and distance you feel your awareness expanding. All that you are can change to a higher vibration as you embrace the Japanese exercises and technique and weave more cords of the universal vibrations of love and harmony  into your everyday life. 

Levels 2, 3 & 4 vary in name because one Japanese style’s lineage is straight through the Gakkai and the other is through Hayashi Sensei

 Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden classes Tuesdays November 5, 12, & 19; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM

Gendai Reiki-ho Okuden classes  Sundays November 3 & 10 and Saturday November 16; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM 


The Shoden level  is the powerful beginning on your Usui Reiki Ryoho journey; the beauty that improves the quality of your life is the journey to receive your certificate and the knowledge that becomes part of your daily life. This Japanese style embraces the original spiritual practice Mikao Usui founded as exercises guide you to bring mind, body, and spirit together into balance and surround with harmony; what is in-balance and surrounded with harmony heals.  The multiple empowerments you receive are just the beginning; Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations guide you to improve the quality of your life and the lives around you.

Look closely at this photograph and see three circles to Reiki energy circles the left and above my dog. This was taken inside my healing studio to show a friend the hall leading to the green (waterless) restroom. The circles are Usui Reiki, which automatically flows through me and in this case fills my healing studio.
