Your Reiki Instructor–Lourdes Gray

Lourdes Gray Reiki

Lourdes has taught over 3,000 Usui Reiki classes alone or with John Harvey Gray over the last 29 years. This includes numerous doctors, nurses, massage therapists, bodyworkers as well as the general public worldwide.

Reiki 1 course based on teachings from book Hand To Hand Book

Together, John Harvey Gray and Lourdes Gray wrote their best-selling book Hand To Hand, a favorite among Reiki enthusiasts worldwide. In 2008, John Harvey Gray officially designated Lourdes Gray as his sole “Reiki Lineage Bearer.”

… I know of no one more qualified to continue my legacy” – John Harvey Gray

“The training I received…was outstanding. Each of the two-day courses (Reiki I, II, and Advanced) brought me deeply into the energy and provided answers to every question. The second day not only provided new information, but allowed for a deepening of the energies…and more time to practice. It was transforming! Lourdes Gray is the best teacher I could ever have asked for.”  

— Susan M.

Furthermore, Lourdes is great with support after the class – always returning emails with answers. I currently practice on the Reiki team at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and feel I couldn’t have been better prepared under another Reiki Master.” — Debbie GoodwinLebanon, NH

Experience and Reputation You Can Trust

Reiki students practice giving reiki session

Reiki training is not standardized. It is passed down as an oral tradition and varies widely from teacher to teacher. There are no licensing or regulatory requirements for teaching Reiki.

Some Reiki teachers teach a highly condensed version of Reiki, (e.g., Reiki I, 2 and Master in a single weekend). Essential Reiki information, knowledge, and much-needed supervised practice time are not being provided for the student because of time constraints. Very often, students leave these classes unsure, confused, and feeling incomplete. They later say that something was “missing” from their training.

Authentic Reiki 1 Course With “No-Cut Corners”

Our Reiki 1 Class provides authentic Usui Reiki training taught with “no-cut corners.” Just as Hawayo Takata and John Harvey Gray taught in their Reiki classes.

Our  Reiki training, true to the original Usui Reiki System, assures that you will develop the level of knowledge, skill, and confidence necessary to use Reiki effectively.

Individual Attention and Supervised Practice Time Provided

You will have plenty of time for supervised hands-on practice, receive lots of individual attention, learn exercises that will quickly develop your intuition, learn how to scan the aura and chakras with your hands and understand their significance in a Reiki session, and much more. All your questions will be answered! — our typical student-teacher ratio is approximately 4:1.

What Students Are Saying About The Reiki 1 Course:

“Lourdes not only taught the classes, she became a lifetime mentor and friend. I highly recommend to anyone searching for a teacher to call the Center and register for her two day Reiki classes. I know you will be properly trained and will enjoy [doing] Reiki!”

— Linda Manning

“Awesome program. Got so much more out of this program than I thought I would – (after taking Reiki I previously as a 1 day program.)”

— Robin Archer, RN,  Marshfield, MA

“If you are thinking about learning about Reiki, look no further! I have attended everyone of Lourdes Gray‘s classes and in my opinion you will not find any better or complete instruction! When you leave her class you will know and understand Reiki!  Two years later, if I have a question I contact Lourdes and she responds within 24 hours!”

—  Pam Thivierge, Reiki Master, Certified Crystald

“I am so happy that I did my research before I chose where I would take my Reiki 1 course. I was looking for…someone who taught with reverence for the history and background of the practice. I found all of that and more upon walking into Lourdes’ class last weekend.”

— Annette Bennett Mather
