Learning Reiki

Anyone can learn Reiki! 

No prior experience necessary.  Reiki, pronounced “ray key”, means Universal Life Force.  This energy is all around us, and we can channel it.

 Reiki is a simple and natural healthcare system that can easily be learnt by anyone for self-care and the care of family, friends and clients.

You will learn that as Reiki practitioners, we have the tools available to assist ourselves when life gets tough and we can't find the optimism in the moment.  Reiki advises us to be gentle with ourselves;  to know that we still hold joy in our heart even though we may have other external emotions; to empower all parts of us and to just do Reiki at any time, in any place.

If  you are a professional body therapist, Reiki can be a valuable addition to your existing practice.


All Courses include Usui plus Holy Fire Reiki 

What is Holy Fire Reiki

Holy Fire Reiki is a new form of Reiki which has been introduced by William Lee Rand of the International Centre for Reiki Training (ICRT) USA.  It is both powerful and gentle and can assist with self healing, empowerment and guidance.  It is included as part of all my Usui Reiki classes.


In Holy Fire Reiki, the attunements are called Placements.  The Placement system provides a more effective level of Reiki for the student and also empowers the symbols with more effective healing energy

Holy Fire energy is noticeably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness.  This energy works alongside traditional Usui Reiki.

Usui / Holy Fire Reiki  - Level 1: 

For treating yourself, family and friends.  

This course focuses on self healing. 

During this class, the student receives their first Attunements/Initiations which turn the light on. It is similar to putting the key into the lock and opening the door just a crack.

The  student opens to the idea of utilising Reiki for not just themselves but for animals, food, plants and their environment. 

After Level 1 training, Reiki energy flows through the hands of the Reiki practitioner.   This can help to re-establish balance and harmony on the physical, emotional and spiritual level.  After this workshop you will be able to provide Reiki for yourself, your family and friends. 


This course includes 10 hrs training held over two days, a comprehensive manual and ongoing support via a regular Reiki share group or further workshops.

If you would like to bring a group of friends along to learn together, I am happy to accommodate dates and times to suit. 


Course Fee - $250.

Usui / Holy Fire Reiki - Level 2: 

Focuses on the mental and emotional level.  You learn to elevate your spiritual awareness and how to increase your Reiki energy capabilities by receiving two powerful Reiki attunements/placements and learning the sacred symbols to assist you on your Reiki journey. 


This course is open to all students who have completed First Degree Reiki (Level 1) with Caterina or with another Reiki Master (please provide a copy of your level 1 certificate)  

Students learn three Reiki symbols which originate from the ancient histories of Japan, Tibet and India and set Reiki apart from other other energy techniques. These sacred symbols are keys, or triggers, that activate a higher, more refined energy transference. Each symbol carries its own path, its own vibration and its own function. 

You will learn what each sacred symbol represents, how they function and how to use them, and have time to practice using the symbols and techniques.  

Students learn how to send Reiki healing by distance which includes sending Reiki to somone around the world or just across town. 

Following your Reiki two attunements,  the light is cranked up to the next level of wattage and light. 

After this course, you are considered as a Reiki practitioner.  As well as providing Reiki for yourself, family and friends, you will be able to provide Reiki for paying clients if you wish to do so.  

Caterina recommends that on completion of this level, students join Reiki New Zealand whereby they follow the code of conduct and professional ethics of this professional body. 


This course includes 10 hrs training held over two days, a comprehensive manual and ongoing support via a regular Reiki share group.

If you would like to bring a group of friends along to learn together, I am happy to accommodate dates and times to suit. 


Course Fee - $300.

This course is open to anyone with Reiki II or higher .  (You will be required to  have an interview with Caterina and provide a copy of your level II or above certificate) 


The student receives the  further Initiations.  Receiving the initiations/placements with each degree level strengthens and empowers your ability to use the symbols.

During the course, you will learn the Usui Master Symbol and the Holy Fire Master Symbol, what they mean and how to use them in your daily life. 

This course is very intensive and is held over three full days. Following this course, you will receive a comprehensive manual and audio recordings of all the meditations and placements to support you on your journey.
