I am extremely thankful to Heather, as I was able to experience the Reiki workshop in such a friendly, comfortable atmosphere, from someone who  empowered me to take a real hold of my life and to make a difference, however small.  Heather has spurred me on to greater things, and amongst other things, has taught me a lot about myself and how to assess the things that really matter. The Reiki workshop really was, and still is, a life changing experience, and I am extremely glad that Heather was there to teach me."

The Five Reiki Ideals/Principles

(As written by Dr Usui himself and translated from the Japanese)


"First we form habits, then they form us.
Conquer your bad habits, or they'll eventually conquer you." 
Dr Rob Gilbert

"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past,
worry about the future, or anticipate troubles ... 
but to live in the present moment, wisely and earnestly."


The Secret Method of Inviting Happiness,
The Miracle Medicine for all Illnesses.

Just for today,
I will give thanks
for my many blessings.

Just for today,
I will not worry.

Just for today,
I will not hold on to anger.

Just for today,
I will do my work honestly.

Just for today,
I will be kind to my neighbour
and to every living thing.

Think these in your mind
and chant these with your mouth.
The Usui Reiki method brings cures
to your mind and your body.

The founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui Sensei

How I Teach Reiki

"Heather, thanks again for another wonderful day on Saturday. As well as being a reminder of all of the practical skills of Reiki, the refresher day has motivated me to re-read my Reiki I manual and make time to do lots of self healing. There were only four of us and this made a good atmosphere - intimate without being too intrusive. There is much to learn, and you are always so receptive to our questions. And you are a good teacher, too - very patient as well as being interesting by sharing with us your own experiences - it was a real pleasure to be there. I came away feeling energised and positive about my life in general."
