65 yrs old

I was introduced to Reiki in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1990 by Reiki Master Anki Petersson who now lives in her native country, Sweden.
Initiated as a master in 1994 by Silvana Tonti Eisner. Since then I attuned over 350 students, among them over 50 masters. I do not advertise, the prospective students find me through referrals.


The Japanese Kanji could be read in many languages but they pronunce it differently.
The meaning is the same
Here are some examples.













What is Reiki?

Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Energy.
The Japanese character for "Rei" means universal, transcendental spirit, mysterious power, essence. "Ki" is the vital life energy, called Chi by the Chinese, Mana by the Hawaiian Kahunas, Prana by the East Indians. This energy is given to all of us as a birthright. It increases the body's natural ability to heal physical ailments and to release the cause of disease.
Reiki is an ancient healing technique, rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui (1862-1926), who developed the Usui System of Reiki in Japan. He taught Reiki to about 2000 people in Reiki centers and Reiki clinics in many parts of the country.

The founders of modern Reiki:



Dr. Mikao Usui

Dr. Chujiro Hayashi,
Mrs. Hawayo Takata

After W.W.II the Reiki movement was introduced to the West. Before his death, Dr. Usui trained one of his students to become the Grand Master, the 52 year-old Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, a retired naval officer. He brought Reiki into the form in we teach it today. He also opened a Reiki clinic in Tokyo, where Mrs. Hawayo Takata, a Japanese from Hawaii, was a patient. She became a Reiki student of Dr. Hayashi in 1936, and received her first attunement. A year later, she received her second attunement, and in 1938 she became a Reiki Master. Shortly after, Dr. Hayashi died and Mrs. Takata became the Grand Master. Before her death in 1980, she initiated and trained 21 Reiki Masters

The Reiki Session

In a Reiki session the hands are laid on the receiver using twelve or more hand positions that correspond to the major chakras or energy centers in the body. From the hand positions the energy finds its own way to where it is needed most, and creates the feeling of relaxation and well being.

What can you expect from a session?

As Reiki energy is drawn by the recipient through the practitioner, the effects of a treatment are very individual and determined by the needs of the receiver. In the chart, you can see some general benefits which seem to manifest in most treatments. Every session will vary in format, dictated by the acute needs and troublesome areas of our clients. In every case, certain positions will be used to balance and energize the endocrine system, which is related to the chakras.

Reiki Classes - initiations:

Reiki I- a weekend workshop, 10am pm-5, Saturday and Sunday; or 4 evenings for those who cannot attend weekend workshops. You will learn and practice the Reiki hand positions for self and others, the history of Reiki, and applications in daily life.
Reiki II-a one-day workshop teaching distant healing, mental healing and an empowerment technique.
Reiki Master: who teaches the Reiki and initiate the students.

Being initiated into Reiki will help you to use this given force in a more aware and focused way. The Reiki attunement process is a very ancient and sacred method for fine tuning the physical and etheric bodies to a higher vibratory level. Chakras, or energy centers in the body, are opened, enabling the Reiki student to channel greater amounts of Universal Life Energy.

Dr. Usui adopted the Meiji Emperor's five principles
as the Reiki believes

          1. Today do not anger

          2. Today do not worry

          3. Today be grateful for your blessings

          4. Today work hard and meditate

          5. Today be kind to others and honor your elders

The History of Reiki

When I learned Reiki in 1990 we were told a story that Dr. Usui was a christian. Then why was he buried in a Buddhist cemetery? To understand why Mrs. Hawayo Takata created a false history we must realize that the main reason for this is that after World War II, the U.S. government had complete control over Japan for a time and banned all Eastern healing methods in Japan and required that only Western medicine be practiced there. To make it more acceptable to the English speaking people a false hystory was created. The most reasoneable history I found here:

I recommend to read : Frank Arjava Petter:Reiki Fire [Paperback]

On this page you can find more book titles, which most likely you can find in your local bookstores.

To become a good Reiki practitioner you should read Reiki books.

This is an old pamphlet of mine when I had only 80 students, and since I had many classes in Hungary and Transylvania, bringing up the students number over 350.
The fees are the same!!!!!!
