Reiki News: shares, Distant Healing, Courses


From November we have a different time to meet online:

  • Monday mornings, about every four weeks, up to 75 minutes
  • Price remains the same full price £6.50 / lower rate £5.00
  • Confirming dates for the rest of the year
    • Friday, 16 October 1400-1500 (last Friday reiki share)
    • Monday, 9 November 1000-1115
    • Monday, 7 December 1000-1115

The space has evolved into a lovely supportive community and conversations at the start feel important. I am allowing an extra time so we do not cut the healing short. You can book via me or online: Reiki page

In the spring I hope we will be able to work online and in person.


I am receiving regular requests for distant healing. I am putting an hour aside each Monday morning and when there is a share I will quietly incorporate my commitment at the end when we send healing to our friends and community. Follow the link for more information: Distant Healing Requests


I was hoping to start teaching again this Autumn. I thought about offering courses online but I am not set up to do this. I will start in the Spring (2021) when we will be allowed to meet in person with fewer restrictions. I recently received a second Reiki Master teaching. The blended learning I received was fantastic but I feel was possible as I have nearly 20 years of experience with reiki. I would not feel comfortable teaching someone online who is taking their first steps with healing.

If you are wanting an online experience, I recommend Lucie Emmett in Exeter. She teaches in accordance with Reiki Evolution ideas and teachings: Lucie Emmett

When I do start teaching, Reiki I and Reiki II will be one day courses with precourse reading and follow-up supervision. Reiki III I am still pondering but suspect it will be a 4 to 6 month commitment with home study and contact days including meeting in nature.

If you have spoken to me about Reiki, you know that I have an uneasy relationship with the subtler sides or esoteric philosophies of healing. I am often approached by would-be reiki students who are really looking to explore mediumship and psychic ability rather than reiki. Reiki is often confused with clairvoyancy and associated abilities and people who do not relate to these experiences feel they cannot practice reiki or energy work. It can also make people wary of healing and of the people who practice it.

Reiki was formalised by a Tendai Buddhist and has meditation and being mindful at its centre. It is a philosophy of balance, self-care and care for others. It can lead to other studies and then additional ideas become attached to it. What is reiki and what is not reiki is often confused. Which is a travesty. Reiki is simple, clear and loving and is available to anyone who is drawn to it.

I want my courses to teach reiki as a healing practice; they will give an excellent foundation to anyone who wants to explore energy and their own spiritual practice. I can see reiki echoed in yoga philosophy, they complement one another beautifully. Reiki supports meditation practice too. It is meditation.

So that’s where my reiki practice is. Let me know if you have any thoughts or questions or want to book anything reiki related including an individual appointment. Do like the reiki facebook page and/or instagram account if you feel drawn to:

A few more days and it’s September!

For those of you who have known me for a while, you will know that I love the autumn and the start of September is a celebration. As well as wishing you a great bank holiday weekend, I have some updates about yoga and meditative spaces.


I was considering starting a face to face class in September but interest was limited. I feel relieved. Local halls and spaces are run by volunteers who feel responsible for both the space and the wellbeing of users of the hall and so it follows that there is a necessity for rules and restrictions. I was feeling overwhelmed and not particularly inspired. There are no face to face classes planned but I will reconsider if the situation changes.

In the meantime, daily online morning classes continue as do online Yoga Wednesdays. Next week, the Morning Dailies are on Tuesday to Friday and there is the final class of a month of yoga on Wednesday evening. I will write about the next term of Wednesdays starting on 16 September.

I have been told about a retreat centre in the Frome/Radstock area that is managing the space very well with the restrictions. I will be contacting them to see if there is a possibility of running a morning or day retreat to complement the online classes. If someone else manages the space, I can concentrate on the teaching.

Online Guided Meditation Evenings

We have spent two evenings walking through a forest and resting at the top of a mountain. In September I will lead a guided visualisation to the beach to meditate. These evenings happen online and it’s a wonderful 30 minutes of being transported to a space guided by my voice but created by your imagination. There are spaces available on both evenings, 14 and 28 September. The Meditations take place on the second and fourth Monday of the month.

Online Reiki Share

These take place on the first and third Friday afternoon of each month. These are also a guided visualisation but working with the idea of energy and distant healing. It sounds bonkers but it works. Here is a short introduction to reiki.

I have been working with Reiki since 2003. I completed a two year Reiki Master apprenticeship in 2009. I have wanted to develop my relationship and practice so I embarked on another training and have just completed an additional Reiki Master training. This was due to take place in April but luckily lockdown happened. My teacher agreed to teach me online and I have been working through various exercises with ongoing guidance and discussion. It’s been a great way to work and suits my style of needing to take my time to reflect and experience.

During this time, more people have approached me for reiki healing and asking about courses. It’s funny how that happens – I decided to commit time and space to this teaching and practice and others have asked to join me. I am intending to publish my courses and information during the autumn. In the meantime here is a link to the relevant page: Reiki

Next week, I am working Tuesday to Friday. I have a few spaces left in the diary for individual appointments and yoga lessons. If you would like to book in online please do, or send me a message and I will find your a time.

Guided Healing Meditation

During August the online evening meditation is a guided journey through the forest to your own healing sanctuary. Last Monday was the first of two evenings working with this visualisation. I have had some lovely feedback about the meditation and am looking forward to working with this again on Monday 24 August (8.00 -8.45 pm). There are spaces available if you would like to journey with us: Meditation
