Your Reiki Instructor–Lourdes Gray
A charismatic and highly experienced Reiki Master Teacher, Lourdes Gray received her entire Reiki Training from her late-husband John Harvey Gray. Lourdes has taught over 1,500 Usui Reiki classes and trained more than 15,000 Reiki students alone or with John Harvey Gray over the last 23 years. This includes numerous doctors, nurses, massage therapists, bodyworkers as well as the general public.
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 Moscariello
Our Reiki 1 Class Will Provide You with The Knowledge, Experience And Confidence To Give Reiki To Yourself And Others.
- Through well-organized Reiki lectures, clear and thorough Reiki demonstrations, and ample supervised Reiki hands-on practice time, you will quickly and easily learn how to bring healing comfort and calm to long-standing conditions as well as to recent injuries for other people, pets, and for yourself.
- You will learn how to scan the human energy field and chakras (energy centers) for balance and vitality and use this information during the Reiki treatment. You will learn about the relationship between chakras and emotions, how these affect the body, and how to use Reiki to restore their balance.
- You will receive the Four Original Reiki I Attunements, directly from Lourdes live via Zoom, which will enable you to channel the Reiki energy for the rest of your life. The original Reiki attunement process automatically protects you from picking up negative energy from your clients as well as from depleting your own personal energy while giving Reiki. Note: Reiki attunements cause a shift in your energy blueprint to enable you to channel the Reiki energy. Attunements work at an ‘energetic’ level and have no connection to the physical body. This makes the attunement process administered on platforms such as Zoom just as effective as those given in person.
- You will receive 1-year complimentary access to our Reiki 1 Membership where you’ll be able to download and print the course manual and watch the class videos and listen to the audio files. In addition, you’ll have lifetime access to support via e-mail, phone, and our private Facebook group. As a student of Lourdes’ Reiki 1 Class, you will be able to contact Lourdes Gray directly by email or Facebook any time a question arises during your Reiki practice.
- “Lourdes’ teaching style is clear, patient, and concise – and she delivers the same information exactly as she learned from her husband, John. 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 Goodwin, Lebanon, NH
No prior experience is necessary in order to learn Reiki.
Two-Day Classes: Our Unique Advantage
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 regulation requirements for teaching Reiki.
Some Reiki teachers teach a highly condensed version of Reiki, (e.g., Reiki I and 2 in a single weekend). The concern with this approach is that essential Reiki information, knowledge and much needed supervised practice time are not being provided for the student because of time constrains. Very often, students leave these classes unsure, confused and feeling incomplete. They later say that something was “missing” from their training.
Our Reiki 1 Class provides authentic Usui Reiki training taught with “no-cut corners” in the same manner Hawayo Takata and John Harvey Gray taught in their Reiki classes.
By offering our Reiki 1 training as a two-day class, we are able to preserve the original and full Reiki teachings, and transfer the knowledge completely to you. Our two-day Reiki training (which is true to the original Usui Reiki System) assures that you will develop the level of knowledge, skill, and confidence necessary to use Reiki effectively.
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.
“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 Crystal

“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
