To rediscover and inhabit our wholeness, we need time, spaciousness, solitude and skills. We need daily practices that restore us to ourselves that bring us back to who we are.

What is Reiki

Can anyone learn Reiki?

Energy healing therapies have been practiced in one form or another all over the globe throughout history.  Bob Reynolds from LifeSpark wrote: “Since the Ice Age, some form of touch therapy has been part of the medical repertoire of shamans and other skilled practitioners.  An Egyptian papyrus dated at around 1552 B.C. describes the laying-on of hands for treatment of health issues.  The Greeks used therapeutic touch in their temples to Aesculapius, the god of medicine, for healing the sick.  The playwright Aristophanes wrote that the practice restored a blind man’s sight.  Medieval European accounts mention touching with the hands as a way to heal all manner of disorders…Societies around the world have conceived of a universal life energy that runs through not only our bodies, but through all of nature.  This energy can be harnessed to improve people’s mental and emotional condition.  Different cultures have given this energy different names:  prana, etheric energy, fohat, orgone, Odic force, and mana.” 


What is an Attunement?

Reiki is different from almost all other healing modalities. It’s actually transferred to each student from a Reiki master during what is called an attunement process. This process is said to open the crown, heart, and palm chakras and creates a unique connection between the student and the teacher. Once you have received a Reiki attunement, you will have Reiki for the remainder of your life. It does not "wear off" and you can never lose it.

Distance Reiki

Person Reiki Class

In the world of social distancing, there’s no question I’ve fielded more lately than “Do you teach Reiki online?” from prospective students. It’s so hard for me to tell them no when they’ve seen many such classes on the Internet. I’m often – almost daily now – asked to explain, “why not?”

The Reiki Master community is at odds over the possibility of giving attunements via distant Reiki, and the contention has forced me to sit with my own beliefs amidst both sides of the argument, and answer the question for myself.

Are distant Reiki attunements possible? In short, yes. Any second-degree student or virtual client can attest to Reiki crossing the bounds of time and space. I have delivered Reiju for self-treatment to clients in deep crisis. They are palpable. And, there is record of Hawayo Takata delivering distant initiations for emergency therapeutic use with the caveat that hands-on attunement be delivered as soon as possible.

The real question for me is: should we offer distant attunements? The matter becomes grayer in these times of COVID, and of heightened mental, emotional and physical illness. I have a deep desire to share Reiki widely – now more than ever – as I’ve witnessed its tremendous capacity to heal the many faces of coronavirus suffering.

But, regardless of whether distant initiations are possible, online Reiki classes are decidedly not for me.

In my experience of teaching Reiki:

  • Practicing and receiving Reiki in class is essential. You cannot learn what you do not experience and practice. Having given several treatments in class, with feedback from the teacher and peers – my students leave confident in their ability to give Reiki and know what their recipients can expect from Reiki sessions.

  • Reiki class must be interactive and, if anything, Zoom culture has made it less imaginable for me to recreate the class experience online. As teachers, we demonstrate hand positions, observe student practice, and tell the Reiki story – correcting form and clarifying questions in real time. I simply don’t know how to do that in the realm of muted/unmuted mics, dropped or delayed video and interrupted internet connections. I won’t know when my students need a bathroom or water break or if they’ve taken one during a crucial piece of information.

  • Reiki community begins in class through the physical and verbal exchange of experience from practitioner to recipient, the intimate questions and life stories that are shared in communion with the practice, and simply being present not just with but for others. So many of my students have created private Reiki shares at home, volunteered, or made a commitment to attending my circles together with classmates.

  • When delivered face-to-face, hand-to-hand, there can be no doubt of the energetic transmission in Reiki attunements. I have – too often – had students confused about initiations, having had previous teachers deliver them through video chat or recorded video, or even given text to read as a means of attunement. These students come to class asking whether I can “see” their initiations and wondering if they have them at all.

  • The giving and receiving of Reiki are fundamental to the attunement process. The connection to Reiki energy that begins with the initiation is fortified by Reiki practice.

  • Students may need support around attunements. For most students, initiations are a peaceful, meditative process. But, for some they may trigger emotional or physical responses. As a teacher, I feel obligated to be present should these reactions arise.

  • I honor tradition and teach Usui Shiki Ryoho where initiations have been given in person, hands-on, from master to student for the last 100 years.

Pet & Animal Reiki
Reiki Master Healer Heals Animals in Rei



My Reiki practice is called Usui Shiki Ryoho - The Usui Method of Natural Healing. It was first developed by Mikao Usui of Taniai Village, Gifu after he endeavored to understand energetic healing and completed a 21-day meditation on Mt. Kurama in 1922. Usui taught a naval doctor named Chujiro Hayashi, whose student Hawayo Takata brought the practice from Japan to Hawaii and eventually the United States. Before she passed, Takata recognized her granddaughter Phyllis Furumoto as her lineage bearer, who in turn recognized her student Johannes Reindl as our current Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage bearer.

Anyone can learn Reiki. Practicing Reiki is an easy, natural process.

I teach Usui Shiki Ryoho - The Usui Method of Natural Healing.

All Reiki classes are taught in-person with the energy & ability transmitted directly from teacher to student through meditative attunements, sometimes called initiations.

Is there anything I need to do or read before class?

No need to read or do anything to prepare. Just show up with an open mind.

I don’t recommend many books on Reiki, but I can make some suggestions after class. I believe Reiki should be experienced and practiced before researched.

Is there anything I need to bring to class?

You may want to bring a personal water bottle or notebook, but otherwise, no need to bring anything to class. Class materials will be provided.

Please dress comfortably as you will be on and off the Reiki table.

Are there breaks in class?

Yes, we will take breaks as needed. There is also a lunch break from 12:30-1:30pm.

Are you vaccinated? What are your COVID-19 protocols?

I am fully vaccinated and boosted. Also, my office has a new HVAC system running 24/7 which creates a powerful flow of ventilation through hospital-grade HEPA Filters & Disinfecting UV Lights.

Ongoing Support


After a home clearing, people typically report sleeping better, feeling more at peace, and happier in their home. If there has been a dramatic event in the house or turbulences in the family dynamic, those get immediately transformed and healed.  In a work environment, teams function better together and visitors often comment about something having been deeply transformed without knowing what has happened. There is a sense of lightness in the whole space, and whatever difficulties the company or business may have experienced will have a much greater chance of being overcome.  A house or office is like a sponge; whatever transpires in your environment, that energy is absorbed into the walls, furniture, carpet, ceiling, and objects. Frequently, these negative energies accumulate in corners and tucked away places. Energy debris can be a result of negative emotions, thoughts, occurrences, and stress that you (your family and co-workers) have experienced in your space. 

Training & Certification
