We are open!

Since 2011 my wife Pooky and I have been planning on building a house and center for Reiki. To cut a very long story short, by the end of 2016, this dream had foundations in the soil of the outskirts of Bangkok. And in the summer of 2017, it was complete:

Our House

I’m thrilled to announce the opening of this new location for the International School of Reiki, which has a dedicated building for practicing and teaching Reiki:

The first Reiki course at this new location will be level one, on the weekend of 19th-20th August. If you’re interested, please get in touch as soon as possible.

Reiki One—Windy

Congratulations to Windy, from the Philippines, for completing her level one course! She’s now actively practicing on herself and others, and is pleased with the difference Reiki is making in her life.

Reiki Course Bangkok 2015 - Windy and Kit

We both really enjoyed this course, and for me it was the first time teaching in a great healing center in Bangkok called Concordia.

What is a Reiki initiation/attunement?

The question looks simple. The answer, I can tell you, is not. And I’ve been receiving and giving them since my first, in New Zealand, nine years ago.

But we can see that the question of the initiation is actually a fundamental one. Every Reiki teacher will tell you that it’s an essential part of the system. And we need to know what we’re doing, and why we’re doing it.

So I’m happy to tell you that after much time spent thinking and researching, after many drafts and re-drafts, and of course after many times actually doing initiations, I’ve got something new for you. It’s the answer, as best I can tell it.

This answer is a core part of every course I teach. It’s literally right there in the middle: Initiations is module two, and it sits after theory (module one) and before practice (module three). I’ve made this part of the course freely available to anyone that registers for this site, which will take just a moment of your time.

So don’t hang around: go and read my answer now.

Level Two Course Launched

I’m really happy to announce that the Reiki level two course is up and online, singing and dancing, ready for you. It’s been a journey getting here, climbing more obstacles than you would ever guess. Many have been technical, such as producing videos and organising online content. But I’ve also had a lot of questions about whether I’m ready to take on the responsibility of being a Reiki teacher. Although I was attuned to the master degree in 2007, and although I’ve been gradually developing teaching materials since then, it didn’t all fit into place at once. I’ve been teaching people here and there, through chance connections, only when the time felt right. I had a Reiki section over on my personal website, but I left a sign hanging there saying “I’m not teaching right now.”

Just over six years of standing at the water’s edge, unsure of when to step in. I’m sure that many Reiki teachers go through a similar process. But I’m through it, and I’m raring to go: this new website is a clear manifestation of that.

If you’re unsure, standing by the edge of something new in your life, say hello and have a look around the site. Reiki might be just what you needed.
