" The process of attunement is what sets Reiki apart from every other form of 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."  Diana Stein, author, "Essential Reiki".  

Reiki Level I course testimonial

I had amazing experiences the last two days, a lot of physical feelings and a lot of emotional feelings, some of which I had never experienced before. I was very tense and worried before I came 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 Kathy for making this experience as gentle and as smooth as possible; it has made all the different I guess, and thank you for sharing this gift."   Pauline, 2018.

Course Content

Usui Holy Fire III Reiki, Level I

Take this intense, detailed course if you would like to give yourself calming, strengthening, balancing Reiki any time; lasts a lifetime.  After this course and self-practice as instructed, your can expect to confidently give yourself full reiki treatments to promote self-healing, as well as to your family and friends.  Positive physical and behavioural changes are commonly experienced after Reiki I.  Although Reiki level I Courses can be held in just one day, I prefer to see you the day after your Reiki initiation, so that you can tell me how you feel and I can sense how you are.  However I do offer Level I in one day as well.  

Follow up with email/phone support.  

Once attuned, you'll get invitations to occasional Reiki shares with meditations (£15) where you will be guided in a Reiki meditative Holy Fire Experience and perhaps movement routines or Yoga Nidra, before we exchange Reiki in turn (max. attendees respecting social distancing guidelines).

If you are already attuned to Reiki and want to add Holy Fire III, or just feel that you need a refresher course, you're welcome to attend a 2-day course at half price (provide your original Reiki 1 Certificate as proof) or attend the short 5-hour Course.

Reiki Level II (Practitioner)
course testimonial

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 in 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."

"The whole weekend was very cathartic. I was able to relax, face some of my emotions and able to feel at peace. The hospitality, food, service and the retreat were all amazing.  Both Kathy and Robert treated me like a family member. We laughed, I cried and totally relaxed. So much so that I have booked the house for my 50th birthday with four very close girlfriends. An ideal place to share and make memories. Kathy and Robert are true gems. This hideaway should be added to everyone's "bucket list". Thank-you both."  Justine, 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 & II, 2018.            People have also reported visions and hearings, ancestral communication, angelic presence, physical sensations, dramatic filmic adventures, temperature changes and deep peace.
After spending time with Kathy and teaching me the Reiki I Course, I have kept practising self-healing every day 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-days self healing, I 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.

    Reiki I Course was an unforgettable experience in my life.  Before attending the course I was quite nervous but Kathy taught me gently, she patiently made everything easier and understandable.  I am so thankful for that.  Several months afterwards, I tried to give others reiki; they all felt miracle and amazing.  I believe I am giving Reiki as well as my love and kindness to them, just like Kathy gives her love and care to us.  Reiki is changing my life, it makes my life positively with hope.  Love, Vivi."
    Straight after the Reiki I Course:  "One of the most obvious changes for me is that I slept way better than before.  My feeling is becoming stronger and I believe I will experience more in the following days.  I am really looking forward to it."
    Vivi is a beautiful Chinese girl studying in the UK.
