On 12th October 2016 - I completed a further Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher Course (online) with Taggart King, Reiki Evolution. This course took place over an 8 month period. The course brings Western Reiki together with Japanese Reiki, and a different perspective on working with the energies of symbols, and distance 'empowerments'.
Mindfulness Training: In 2017 - I completed 2 different Mindfulness training courses, one online MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) and one in-house. One was in the style of 'Thich Nhat Hanh' (Community of Interbeing) and the second in the style of 'Jon Kabat-Zinn' (Mindfulness UK).
I became a member of The Shibumi International Reiki Association in 2018 - The organisation supports the Japanese art of the system of Reiki - Frans Stiene (International House of Reiki).
On 23rd May 2019 - I completed a Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher Course, at Abbey House in Glastonbury. The course was run by William Lee Rand (International Center for Reiki Training) another prominent teacher, this time I trained in Holy Fire® III and Karuna Reiki.
In October 2020 - Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (Mindfulness UK) 8 week course, online and teacher led, this was completed in December. This personal development in Mindfulness will further support our Reiki practices and journey of self-healing and self-discovery, as Mindfulness played a large part in Usui's Reiki from 2nd degree onwards.
March 2021 - Online (Zoom) Mindfulness Retreat (3 days) with The Community of Interbeing - Be Calm, Be Happy with teachers Katie Sheen, Laurie Bower and Ian Sneath, in the teaching style of Thich Nhat Hanh.
