A unique opportunity to take your Reiki training in Dr Usui’s homeland.

The course will take place in Kyoto, the traditional heart of Japan, home of the famous golden temple, geisha, and other historic sights where we can walk in Sensei Usui’s footsteps. We will be staying in a traditional ryokan or Japanese inn.


In Kyoto, there will be the opportunity for sightseeing and cultural exchange. The highlight of our visit will be a day trip to Mount Kurama, the very birthplace of Reiki where Sensei Usui meditated for 21 days and received the Reiki energy. Kurama has many different frequencies and patterns of high vibration. We will hike up to the top of the sacred mountain for a meditation, and the Masters attunement. On the way back down we will enjoy an outside bath at the local hot spring ‘onsen’.


The full two-day, in-depth Reiki Master Teacher course or Reiki I and II course will be spread out throughout the week. In addition, we will visit a Buddhist Temple where we will learn Zen meditation from the resident Buddhist Priest. There is an opportunity to attend a calligraphy class and gain an insight into the world of a Geisha walking through Gion.

This will be an unforgettable physical and spiritual journey for anybody passionate about Reiki!

Our in-depth Master Teacher course will be spread out during the week. The first part will look at what it means to be a Master, how to prepare for and pass attunements and an understanding of what happens during this process.

The second part looks at how to teach Reiki and reviews the content of Reiki I and Reiki II to make sure that each Master has a sound knowledge of the Reiki history, principles, symbols and hand-positions. This knowledge is essential even if you do not plan to teach.

There will be numerous mediations and a lot of opportunity to practice both healing and attunements and the detailed manual and Reiki Master Training DVD will ensure that participants can refer back to all that has been learned at home.

"Open honest Reiki training. Excellent in focusing on Usui traditional Reiki and explaining the differences between Reiki. Attunement into Reiki Masters was a wonderful experience. The trip up Mount Kurama unforgettable. What made it great was the connection between the people and the course. Diverse backgrounds yet so kind, considerate and welcoming."





Tina has been a passionate and committed Reiki Master for over 20 years. She is the founder of The Reiki School and has taught hundreds of Reiki students over her time as a Master Teacher and many of her students are now successfully working as healers and teachers.

Tina is a consultant hypnotherapist and Master of NLP. She brings her considerable understanding of human nature to her work as a holistic healer.

Tina is only 9th down in lineage from Sensei Usui himself. Her Karuna® Master is William Rand.

In 2001 Tina visited the World Reiki Day in India and had the opportunity to study with Walter Luebeck, Frank Arjava Petter and William Rand. She was invited to assist William Rand at Reiki I and II.

Tina usually offers her Masters course in beautiful sacred Avebury where each year many crop-circles appear. This power spot amplifies the Reiki energy and makes the Masters training really special.

In the last few years Tina has started to work internationally, offering healing and creative retreats around the globe. Teaming up with gifted yoga and art teachers she has run several workshops in India, Turkey and Spain.

This forthcoming Reiki Masters course in Japan will be the fulfilment of a life-long dream for Tina.
