John Harvey Gray taught Reiki for longer than any other Reiki teacher in the United States before his passing in 2011. John was responsible for introducing and establishing Reiki in the New England region.

Lourdes GrayYour Reiki instructor Dr. Lourdes Gray, is the Director of the John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing. Lourdes received her entire Reiki Training from her late-husband John Harvey Gray. In 2008 John Harvey Gray designated Lourdes Gray as his lineage bearer.
Lourdes has taught over 1,200 Reiki classes and trained more than 15,000 Reiki students alone or with John Harvey Gray over the last 20 years.This includes numerous doctors, nurses, masshand to handage 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.

What You Will Learn In This Reiki 2 Class:

A Brief Review and Practice of the Reiki 1 Class Reiki 2 Class lectureTechniques:

  • After the review and practice, you will learn the three Reiki symbols known as the “Sacred Keys” of Reiki. The Reiki symbols unlock and activate the higher Reiki energies. You will learn what each sacred Reiki symbol represents, how it works, and practice using the symbols and techniques.

The First Sacred Reiki Key (Symbol)

  • With the First Sacred Reiki Key, you will be able to raise your Reiki healing power from 20% (normal for a Reiki Level I Practitioner) up to 100%… same level as a Reiki Master.
  • You will learn how to activate the first Reiki symbol in each of the Reiki treatment patterns (yes, it does makes a difference).
  • You will also learn a variation of the first Reiki symbol that very few Reiki practitioners know. It is NOT in any of the Reiki books. This variation was taught to John Harvey Gray by Hawayo Takata. It is very powerful and gives you great flexibility when treating large areas of the body more quickly.

The Second Sacred Reiki Key (Symbol)

  • Reiki healing for chakras and emotional set pointsOpens a communication pathway with the body that allows you to bring mental, emotional and spiritual healing to any condition or situation.
  • Use of this symbol (and 7 powerful techniques) will raise your Reiki healing ability to the next level!
  • You’ll be able to immediately use these powerful techniques on yourself as well as on other people and animals.
  • Learn how to use this symbol on a wide range of conditions, e.g., emergency situations, chronic conditions of all types, depression, anxiety, weight loss, quitting smoking, insomnia, low self-worth, financial security, finding the right romantic relationship and much more.

John Harvey Gray used to say to students, “If you are not using the Second Reiki Key properly, then you are missing out on 50% of what Reiki can do for you!”

The Third Sacred Reiki Key (Symbol)

  • Using this key, you will be able to give Reiki to anyone, anytime, anywhere.distance
  • There is no such thing as time and space when it comes to Reiki. You will learn how to properly activate this key and energetically connect with the person or animal you are treating. It will feel as if they were directly under your hands!
  • You will feel the Reiki energy as it flows into their body! If the person is sensitive he or she will feel the Reiki energy too!
  • When properly practiced, Reiki absent treatments allow you to use all of the techniques that are available for Reiki hands-on treatments.
  • What is more, Reiki absent treatments are just as effective as Reiki hands-on treatments, when administered correctly. By properly learning and using this technique, you will be able to help friends and family, no matter how far away they may live!

opening-and-closing-spiralYou will learn the Opening and Closing Spirals.

  • The Opening Spiral prepares the chakras (energy centers) for receiving the Reiki energy,
    allowing them to more fully absorb the healing energy.
  • The Closing Spiral seals the transmitted Reiki energy within the recipient’s chakras in order to make the healing effects of the Reiki session last MUCH longer!

“When I first began to incorporate the Opening and Closing Spiral Technique into my Reiki sessions, my success rate increased dramatically! We want to pass this knowledge on to you…” — John Harvey Gray

  • Animal Reiki Level 2 Certification is included in this class

Two Day Classes: Our Unique Advantage

Why Are Some of Your Reiki Training Classes Two Days Instead of One? Reiki training is not standardized. Reiki training varies widely from teacher to teacher. Our Reiki I Training, Reiki II Training and Reiki II Advanced Training classes require two days of training each because it would be impossible to present all of the knowledge, skills, and techniques contained in each of these Reiki courses in just one day. If we were to cut the training time to just one day, we would be leaving out 1/2 of the training, which unfortunately is what often happens in one day classes where students are left unsure and confused. At the John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing we teach only authentic Reiki training classes with "no-cut corners" continuing the tradition established by Hawayo Takata and John Harvey Gray for their classes.Reiki training is not standardized. It varies widely from teacher to teacher. Our Reiki 2 Class provides authentic Reiki training taught with “no-cut corners” in the same manner John Harvey Gray taught in his Reiki classes.

By offering our Reiki 2 training as a two day class, we are able to preserve the original and full teachings, and transfer it 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, and will receive lots of individual attention — our typical student-teacher ratio is approximately 2:1.

“The weekend trainings are in depth and very hands on. I left Reiki level I and Reiki level II feeling very confident in my training. I would highly recommend taking a class from Lourdes, and I look forward to getting back to Jaffrey for continued learning, both in the practice of Reiki and also in support and practice of the other classes offered. Very nice environment for learning.” — Rebecca Fontaine, Brattleboro, VT

Why is this Reiki 2 Class taught in two days instead of one?
