" 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."   Diana Stein, author, "Essential Reiki".

Reiki Level I course testimonials

" 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.
" 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.

" My 1:2:1 Holy Fire Reiki levels I & II training was a transformative life-changing experience. Kathy held such a beautiful space with an angelic & loving presence. She is a very gracious, respectful & attentive teacher. This was such a blessing, I am eternally grateful."  Anna Stubbs, testimonial on google, 2018.

"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."

    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.
