Usui Holy Fire Reiki Courses

I teach all levels of traditional Usui with contemporary Holy Fire Reiki.  Levels I and II are spread over two consecutive days to allow you to comfortably absorb the higher energies and for feedback and questions the day after your initiation. Initiations/attunements/placements are done in person by me (not over the internet!) so are recognised by the UK Reiki Federation and Reiki Membership Association (USA).  The  courses are detailed, practical, in-depth (details below) with ample time to practice on yourself and others and learn all you need to know at each level, and more.  Lunches, soft drinks and fruit are included.  

Level I Course: 
MARCH 2020 
Saturday 21st 2pm-6pm and Sunday 11am-4pm 22nd March.      £175. Group discounts available.

Level II (Practitioner) Level Course: APRIL 2020
Saturday 25th 2pm-6pm and Sunday 11am-4pm 26th April 2020.
£255. Group discounts available.

Usui Holy Fire Reiki, Level I Course    

If you're already attuned to Reiki and would like a Usui Holy Fire III in-person attunement, you can book this separately with a half day appointment for £75.  If you'd like to refresh your Reiki, you can attend a Level I or II Course at half price on submission of your original Reiki Certificate and your Reiki Manual/s.

"The process of attunement is what sets Reiki apart from every other laying on of hands or touch healing. The attunement is not a treatment, it creates the healer. From this point on, the person who has received the attunement is a Reiki practitioner."   Diane Stein, author "Essential Reiki".

Level I courses are for adults and children from 6 years old; Second Degree or Reiki II for ages 16+; and Master level 18+, Teacher for 18+.  Small groups up to 10 people, or just one-to-one (ask for 1-to-1 prices).   If you run a business or a spa facility, consider including Reiki for you and your staff to calm and increase productivity.  After attending Reiki First Degree, Reiki I, and sufficient self-practice, expect to feel confident to give reiki to your family, friends and pets.  Typically, Reiki I promotes physical changes.

A month or so after taking this course and self-practice as instructed, you can expect to confidently give yourself full reiki treatments to promote self-healing and balance your chakras.  Positive physical changes are commonly experienced after Reiki I.   

This Course takes approximately 9-10 hours, depending on attendees.  I prefer to teach over two consecutive days to see and hear how you are after your first reiki attunement  (on the first day) before the follow-up reiki experiences on the second day.  Everyone needs time to absorb and adjust to Reiki's high vibrational energies.   

Accommodation is also available for 1 - 4 nights - see below.

After the Course, follow up includes email / phone support and Healing Attunements if required in the event of a personal crisis.  I also host occasional Reiki shares (15 euros in Grasse, £15 in London) where you can meet other reiki friends and relax with guided Reiki meditations/Holy Fire Experience before we exchange reiki with each other in a small group. After attending a course, you can still receive Reiki treatments as well as your self-treatments.

I had an amazing experience the past two days, a lot of different physical feelings and emotional feelings, some of them I had never experienced before.  I was very tense and worried before I came for the first session, but I am now so glad that I went through this process; I have a feeling of relief (huge relief) inside of me but also peace, joy, happiness and contentment.  I hope to hold these feelings with me always.  Thank you for much Kathy for making this experience as gentle and smooth as possible, it has made all the difference, I guess, and thank-you for sharing this gift."   Pauline, after Reiki I attunements, January 2018.

Kathy, thank you so much for this amazing day..."  

Some weeks later: "This is just to let you know that everything is ok on my side.  I'm back to work now and Reiki is working its magic there as well, as you told me it would, and it feels great... It is very interesting, I have a lot of new sensations in my hands and within my body.  I can feel more."    Paula, Levels I and II, 2018.

After spending time with Kathy and teaching me reiki course 1, I have kept practising self healing everyday and I'm learning more and more about the power of reiki. For 15 years I've had a very self destructive daily habit that, as much as I tried over and over again, I kept on failing to stop the repetitive behaviour. During my 21-day self healing, I've found the strength to just stop! I can't tell you how much of a miracle it feels to me. It has and will continue to make a positive difference in all areas of my life. And I'm so so thankful to you Kathy - you are a warm, caring, shining light. 

Chrissie, 2017.  (After an attunement, there is a 21-day period of self-Reiki at home to fully absorb at every auric layer.)

Usui Holy Fire III Reiki, Second Degree Course

(Level II, Practitioner level)

Take this Level II course if you'd like to develop your reiki further, become certified as a Reiki Practitioner, and help more people in this uniquely healing way.  Personally for yourself, Reiki II typically promotes additional mental and emotional changes.  A few months after taking this course and sufficient home practice, you can expect to confidently send distant reiki, and set up as a Reiki Practitioner.   

1 and-a-half day course, or the equivalent, includes a Usui/Holy Fire III Reiki, Level II Placement (attunement), learn powerful sacred Reiki symbols, the Holy Fire symbol and how to use them, discover what you could experience when giving reiki to others, practice giving reiki and scanning people and things; give distant reiki and reiki to the past and future; learn about the heavens; and get all you need to develop your own Reiki practice should you wish to become a Practitioner of Reiki.   You will be asked to invite a friend or family member (for a couple of hours) to practice scanning and Reiki - they'll get a lovely Reiki treatment, free!

Level I and II Reiki Holy Fire Manual by William Lee Rand; and Certificate.

Kathy is a wonderful reiki practitioner and it was a real joy to do the reiki course with her.  She is patient, passionate and has a beautiful sense of calm when teaching.  Since completing the course, I have felt a profound shift within the way I approach life.  I feel my old unhelpful habits are loosening and that there is a new path opening up in front of me.  I would strongly recommend studying with Kathy."   Kathryn,, Drama Teacher, Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki, Level II Practitioner Course, 2018.
