So glad you have an interest in Reiki. My interest began about fifteen years ago and it has deepened continually since then. I love seeing how it helps people. And oh my how it has helped me too!

The Roles I play:
- I offer Reiki Sessions during the day Monday to Friday. My practice is mostly in my home office just 1Km outside of Owen Sound in Georgian Bluffs (Sarawak).
- I can also teach all levels of Usui/Holy Fire ll Reiki as well as Karuna Reiki.
- As a Reiki master, I am making reiki a way of living and being. That means I am always learning more by reading and by practicing. more and more I have learned that it is in my own self healing that I can best be of service to others. The path is long with many ups and downs. It is a soulful path and one that gives me a sense of purpose.
About the Reiki Classes
Until now I have taught Reiki in different locations within or very close to Owen Sound. Recently, I am changing my strategy. But I find promoting my classes somehow takes away from what I really want to do. So I am trying something a little different.
If you are interested in taking Reiki classes from me, let’s talk. If there are at least three of you who want to learn, let me know and we can find a time that best suits all of us.
What if you don’t know of two other people? I have heard from two people who wish to learn Reiki. One in interested in the second level and the other wishes to take the first two levels. This is an advantage for you because You could possibly have the opportunity to take classes without having tow others whoa also wish to take them. Just keep me posted. Email me at email@example.com
Usui/Holy Fire 11 Reiki Master course:
The next Reiki Master course is scheduled for Saturday Sunday Monday Nov 4-5-6 in Owen Sound. Sheila Murphy and I will be sharing the teaching of this course.
If one of the people to whom I have taught the Reiki Master Course wish my help as they teach students, I am happy to mentor them and/or to share the teaching the first one or two times they offer classes. We can negotiate how that works in a mutually beneficial way.
Reiki teachers can’t help but bring their whole life experience to the classes they teach. Of course those I work with will follow the curriculum as taught through the International Centre for Reiki Training (ICRT at http://www.reiki.org).
Note that all prices are in Canadian Dollars.
Usui/Holy Fire ll Reiki Master
If you have taken the first two levels and have practiced using the Reiki 11 symbols with about 10 or more in-person sessions (up to 5 per individual) you may want to consider the next level. I will offer the Master program with Sheila Murphy over three days in the late fall Nov 4-5-6 in Owen Sound. Do you find November to be a rather dull month? Me too and it seems it is a good time to offer the Master program. Please let me know if you are interested and we can discuss.

And Now More About Reiki Itself
What is Reiki?
Reiki is an energy modality. The following is a definition taken from the International Reiki site at http://reiki.org of which I am a member.
“Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.”
What I find most meaningful in Reiki
For me, it is the spiritual nature of Reiki that inspires me most. It is a spirituality that is not connected to any religion but could be connected to all of them. It is also a spirituality that is not dependent on any preconceived concept of what God is or isn’t.
The latest evolution of Reiki coming through the ICRT is called Usui/Holy Fire 11 Reiki. I find the Holy Fire energy gently powerful. It seems to have changed how the energy moves through me even in my daily life. I am happy to be able to share it with others.
So do you have to believe in God?
No. It is optional. I have crossed paths with more and more people who are confused about their beliefs. Their perspective is agnostic, even though they don’t know for sure what that means. Being agnostic is really a noncommittal belief to a concept of God. Maybe God is and maybe God isn’t. Maybe universal energy is the same as God … or maybe not. Maybe Reiki energy is the same as Christ energy or Allah energy … or maybe not.
And so Reiki offers us the opportunity to unite in a way that can have meaning to all. Now I am speaking from my personal life experience. I hear others speak of this too.
What is a Reiki treatment like?
From here, you might wonder what is so useful about Reiki energy. When I am offering a Reiki treatment to someone, I have begun first with some talk time in order to know better what the person is facing along life’s path. Together we come up with an intention to incorporate into the Reiki experience. The intention is usually something that is related to a healthy perspective or being centred or calm or focussed or something of that nature.
Before we begin Reiki itself, I like to help the person relax and I use a guided imagery that is customized to the situation we have been discussing and the intention we have formed.
Once I begin the Reiki itself, I can feel the energy come through me. This is both inspiring and highly meaningful for me. I don’t see energy fields but as my experience with Reiki increases, I trust my intuitive senses more. That frees me up to allow Reiki to do what needs to be done.
What are the benefits of Reiki?
The relaxation that occurs is visible and palpable. That in itself is a benefit. This means that Reiki helps relieve stress in the physical body. That relaxed state promotes healing.
I see other positive effects from the relaxation. It seems to help people leave the circular thought patterns that go along with challenges. It clears out the garbage chatter and they are able to view a situation from a different perspective. This is helpful in coaching. I see opportunities to use Reiki as a means of helping a person remove blocks and change thought patterns thus helping their connection with life purpose and dealing with life transitions in a healthy way.
