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.

Why Reiki Lineage Is Important

Reiki, an ancient spiritual healing art, was developed in the 1920s by Mikao Usui of Kyoto, Japan. In order to preserve the teachings of both Usui and the ancient healing methods, special care was taken to ensure the training and mastery of Reiki was done in a very detailed, specific way so it would continue to be performed accurately, thoroughly and with technical expertise just as Usui had developed and performed Reiki. 

Our Lineage & Impact in the United States

The Reiki system was passed hand-to-hand from Mikao Usui to a Japanese naval surgeon Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, who in turn, passed the teachings down to a Japanese-American woman Mrs. Hawayo Takata. Takata introduced the system to the West and created 22 Reiki Master (Teachers). John Harvey Gray was one of the original 22 Reiki Masters who completed his training in 1976. John Harvey Gray was the longest-practicing and most experienced Reiki Master Teacher in the USA.  He taught in 48 of the 50 states and introduced and established Reiki in New England (The John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing L.L.C.) until his passing in 2011.

Reiki Lineage Bearer Lourdes Gray

Reiki Master Teacher Lourdes Gray received her entire Reiki training from her husband John Harvey Gray. 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 Director, Lourdes currently teaches all of the classes at the Center. Over the last 23 years, Lourdes has taught over 1,500 Reiki classes and trained more than 15,000 Reiki students, including numerous doctors, nurses, massage therapists, alternative and complementary healing practitioners as well as the general public. 

Lourdes is dedicated as “4th Generation Reiki Master Teacher” to preserve and pass down hand-to-hand the Reiki healing art from Mikao Usui to all of her students.
