What are the Reiki Degrees?

Having received a series of Reiki healings, many feel called to learn how to work with Reiki themselves. One of the beauties of Reiki is that learning is neither complicated nor requires years of training. Traditionally, it is taught in weekend workshops or classes, and each Level generally takes two days for the essence of the learning to be transmitted from teacher to student. The degrees not only indicate levels of skill but also reflect the number of initiations that you will have received. Hands-on initiations are the physical manifestation of a process that enables you to work with Reiki.

Generally one receives four initiations during each level. In my own class, you will receive five, as we work through a complete Lunar Cycle during each course. For the present time, I propose courses for teaching the first two Reiki Degrees.

Are my courses like other Reiki courses?

Yes, in the sense that you will learn the core training that constitutes the internationally recognized Reiki First and Second Degrees. I have however waited some years before teaching, as I have been developing my own approach and perfecting a selection of techniques that I now feel called to transmit to others. For this reason, I do not propose weekend courses, but rather what I term Lunar Reiki.

Lunar Reiki training

Lunar Reiki takes place on one day of each week, over the 29-day Lunar Cycle. There are three reasons for this. First, this builds in time for the integration of the Reiki energy. Taking a weekend Reiki course can be quite overwhelming. Whilst this intensity can be agreeable, I feel called to run things over an extended period. This extended period allows more time for homework and practice. I am a firm believer in natural cycles, so to begin on a new moon is to be aware of where we begin our journey, the process of letting go of preconceptions, and the creation of a new energy inside. Working with the lunar cycle is a way of following the natural rhythms of the Earth, and developing a sense of Divine Timing, which I find inherent and beneficial in the practice of Reiki.

As with all recognized Reiki training, you will receive a Reiki Manual for each level. This will be a reference tool, containing aspects of history, of technique, and a full bibliography to support your Reiki training.

Can I sign up for Reiki 1 alone?

I will now be taking students for Reiki I and students for both Reiki I and II. You may sign up for Reiki I alone.

Can I take Reiki 2 on its own?

Even if you have already taken your Reiki 1 with another Reiki Master, I ask you respectfully to begin afresh and take both parts of the training with me. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, in addition to the traditional material, there are several more advanced aspects brought into my Reiki I training. The Reiki Second Degree follows on directly from my teaching of my Reiki First Degree. Secondly, I have written the two courses to fit together, hand in glove. There is quite simply a lot more in this training than you will find in most traditional Reiki degrees.

Signing up for Reiki training

Reiki training is something that should be approached by both the Teacher and Student. It is important that we can exchange, talk about the program, and make sure that we are suited to work together. In this way, it will be a pleasure for both. For this reason, I invite you to contact me via the form at the bottom of this page so that we can arrange to meet and discuss your training. I will be delighted to hear from you.


Once we have decided to proceed and have arranged dates, please send your deposit of £50 as confirmation, via the Paypal link below. The remaining course fees can then be paid in full via the secure PayPal links below. Following your £50 deposit (non-refundable), Reiki I is £300, the full Reiki I and Reiki II course fee is £700 for full payment. There is an option for 8 monthly payments of £100, via a PayPal payment plan, if you wish to pay in monthly installments.

Once you have paid your deposit, your course is considered booked. There are three payment options. These are for Reiki I alone, Reiki I & II, and a payment plan for Reiki I & II. If you have taken my Reiki I training and wish to continue with Reiki II, please let me know and I will send you a PayPal link to cover the course. There is no difference in fee if you purchase Reiki I and Reiki II together, or one after the other.

During each course, you will receive your fully illustrated and spiral-bound Reiki Manual. On completion of each degree, you will receive a signed certificate, along with your lineage within the Reiki tree. My courses, involving hands-on initiations are recognised by the TRA (The Reiki Association) which will enable you to be insured for professional practice (for example, via the insurers Balens/Zurich). This is essential if you wish to practice professionally.

Testimonials for Lunar Reiki

The universe smiled on me when I was introduced to Peter. I had been looking for some time for a deep immersive Reiki training — and most importantly the right Reiki Master to learn from.  He turned out to be all that I could have wished for: intelligent, intuitive, grounded and very knowledgable – a natural teacher.  He constructed the course around the lunar cycle and with a breadth of wisdom he passed on so much more than I could have hoped for.  I thoroughly recommend him to anyone who would like to learn to practice the Healing of Reiki or indeed have a better understanding of all aspects of Energy Healing.
