Learning Reiki


Anyone can learn Reiki! 

No prior experience necessary.  Reiki, pronounced “ray key”, means Universal Life Force energy.  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 are taught as the Usui/Holy Fire® III style of Reiki that is a combination of the Usui system as taught by Mrs. Takata, and a special Holy Fire® III style.

Usui Shikki Reiki Ryoho 

Reiki Ryoho translates to the divine art of healing and Usui Shikki Reiki Ryoho is the Usui style of Reiki Ryoho.

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.


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


In Holy Fire® Reiki, the attunements are called Placements.

Level 1 - Usui / Holy Fire® III Reiki 

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, students may begin to notice Reiki energy flows through their hands. .  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.

Level 2 - Usui / Holy Fire® III Reiki

Focuses on the mental and emotional level.  You learn to elevate your spiritual awareness and how to increase your Reiki energy capabilities. 


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.  

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 NZ Inc, 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.

Some positive comments from Caterina's students:

"Good explanations; friendly and professional manner; nicely paced."  

"Overall feeling of calmness and welcome."   

"Really enjoyed the course and attunements."  

"The journey of becoming a Reiki master has taken my understanding, awareness and practice to a whole new level.  Caterina is a wonderful facilitator she has a unique balance of knowledge, wisdom and fun and weaves love and compassion throughout everything she teaches.  I am extremely grateful to Caterina for supporting me on my Reiki Master journey which in essence is learning to master oneself.  The ongoing support and sense of community with the monthly Reiki share group Caterina provides keeps the connection for us all alive and enables us to truly imbibe Reiki at every level of life."  

"Peaceful soothing feeling whilst being taught."


"Excellent teacher - easy to communicate with." 

"My experience with the Holy Fire Masters Training with Caterina was absolutely profound. Not only did I learn a lot about this avenue of Reiki from a theory perspective, which was truly fascinating, I also experienced personal healing and break through in my own life. Receiving Holy Fire Reiki has deeply shifted many blocks that have stopped me from truly connecting to and loving my self. It has hands down been one of the most powerful and incredible things that I have done in my life.

I would highly recommend this course for anyone who is wanting a deeper sense of personal freedom, an intense acceptance and love for Self and others. For those who want to truly get to know and connect with who they really are and the truth of their authentic self in a way that brings overwhelming inner peace and contentment." 

"An enjoyable, amazing experience. Thank you very much." 

Awesome course and beautiful energy with the group.  Thank you! "

"Thank you so much.  I loved it.  You are a lovely person." 

"I loved it.  I love your energy. Looking forward to learning more."

"I loved learning everything.  The philosophy, the practice, the blessings."

"I enjoyed each and every moment of the course :-) "  

"Thank you for being you.  May your light continue to grow and expand.  Much love and infinite blessings." 

Becoming a Reiki master was an obvious choice when I first met Caterina, she exudes a very genuine spiritual glow.  Her teaching and guidance was so relaxing and mindful during the three days of our initiation.  I feel that the Reiki energy and beneficial effects, flow through all areas of my life.  An important addition is the way Caterina continues to selflessly support us in every way possible.   Furthermore she facilitates our monthly Reiki Share evenings which keep us all in contact, and practising our healing.         

" Amazing course.  I thoroughly enjoyed it."

"Fantastic :-) "

"It was wonderful - thank you."

"Thank you for a wonderful experience.  I love the way you teach and presented the course content.  Life changing.  Much gratitude."
