YOU can Learn Reiki!

Anyone can easily learn Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”). Reiki is the Japanese word for “Universal Life Energy.” This energy is all around us and we can channel it.

The Reiki energy flows through the hands of the practitioner and into the person, animal or plant being treated, enhancing and accelerating the natural healing processes in the body. Reiki helps to restore balance and harmony and promotes the relaxation response.

At the John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki  Healing we provide all levels of Reiki Training. Check out our highly-acclaimed classes HERE!

Learn Reiki With The Most Experienced Teachers in The West

An ancient spiritual healing art, Reiki is a simple method of hands on healing developed in the 1920’s by Mikao Usui of Kyoto, Japan. The system was passed, hand to hand, from Mikao Usui, to naval surgeon, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi. Dr. Hayashi, in turn, passed the teachings down to a Japanese-American woman, Mrs. Hawayo Takata, who introduced the system to the West.  John Harvey Gray, was one of the original 22 Reiki Masters. He completed his entire Reiki training from Mrs. Hawayo Takata in 1976 and was the longest-practicing and most experienced Reiki Master Teacher in the USA until his passing in 2011. John Harvey Gray taught Reiki in 48 of the 50 states and introduced and established Reiki in New England.

Reiki Lineage Bearer Lourdes Gray

5th Generation Reiki Master Teacher Lourdes Gray received her entire Reiki training from her husband John Harvey Gray. She was initiated by John Harvey Gray as a Reiki Master Teacher in 1996 following extensive one-on-one training by John Harvey Gray in the teachings of Reiki as originally taught by Hawayo Takata. In 2008, John Harvey Gray officially designated Lourdes Gray as his sole “Reiki Lineage Bearer” and named her “the most qualified teacher in the John Harvey Gray System of Reiki Training.” As Grand Master and Director of the Lineage, Lourdes currently teaches all of the classes at the Center.  For Lourdes Gray, the widow of John Harvey Gray, learning from and practicing with John Harvey Gray continued as a twenty-four hour a day experience that lasted for 17 years, until his passing into spirit on January 12, 2011.

Over the last 25 years, Lourdes Gray alone or with John Harvey Gray has taught over 3,000 Reiki classes and trained more than 20,000 Reiki students worldwide, including numerous doctors, nurses, massage therapists, alternative and complementary healing practitioners as well as the general public. Lourdes is dedicated to preserve and pass down hand-to-hand the Reiki healing art from Mikao Usui to all of her students. 

At the John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing you can learn Reiki with confidence knowing that you are receiving the most thorough Reiki training available anywhere.

The John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing was established by John Harvey Gray and Lourdes Gray in 1996. The Center was created in order to empower and develop the Reiki student’s capacity to learn Reiki using the most complete Reiki training available with no cut corners’ taken in teaching the Reiki healing system as it was taught by Mrs. Hawayo Takata. 

Over time, The John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing has become recognized and acknowledged as a leader in the field of Reiki training and energy healing. In addition to its commitment to excellence in Reiki training, it also serves as a platform from which John Harvey Gray and Lourdes Gray have developed and launched several important works, including their best selling Reiki book Hand To Hand, the audio recording “Takata Speaks: Volume I and Volume II,” and the “Emotionality and the Chakras” CD containing John Harvey Gray’s ground-braking theory on the chakras and his “Chakra Balancing Meditation.”

The mission of the John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing is to preserve the Reiki teachings of Mikao Usui, Chujiro Hayashi and Hawayo Takata, and at the same time, to further expand on those teachings; to offer a comprehensive system to learn Reiki based on John Harvey Gray’s vast storehouse of knowledge and experience in teaching and practicing Reiki and Lourdes Gray’s many years of deep, concentrated Reiki training with John Harvey Gray as well as her own extensive experience in teaching and practicing the Reiki system of natural healing. 

The knowledge and experience of both of these teachers has been distilled into a curriculum that provides students with a profound understanding of energy healing techniques and powerful Reiki training tools for self-development. Students learn Reiki with confidence. They learn to treat any condition, chronic or acute, in all living things. Easy to learn and effective meditation practices are presented in order to help accelerate the student’s own spiritual evolution and define his or her own sense of purpose.

In these evolutionary times, we believe that we are being called to Oneness. In heeding that call, we are One Reiki Family. We honor all Reiki lineages. Reiki is energy and energy is dynamic, ever-changing and transforming. We recognize that there is still much to be learned in the field of bioenergetics and the body’s capacity to heal. Reiki must remain dynamic and willing to grow, based on continuing research and experience.

At the same time, we hold the firm belief that the Reiki system as developed by Mikao Usui, and passed down to Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, and John Harvey Gray must be preserved. We must use their teachings as the building blocks upon which we can continue to grow as One Reiki Family, to bring much-needed healing to the people, the animals and the Earth.
