Usui Holy Fire II Reiki Training

Image of Reiki healing handsLearn Reiki with me in my home in Island Bay overlooking the beautiful south coast of Wellington. My teaching includes traditional and modern Usui Reiki covering the wonderful system of natural healing developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in 1922, and techniques of Western and Japanese Reiki.

All the training that I offer includes the Holy Fire which is a new energy within Reiki. It is profound, powerful and effective, and provides a real sense of being loved, supported, guided and healed. You’ll find more information on the Holy Fire Reiki page.

I provide training in a relaxed and friendly environment at my home that supports you in experiencing, learning, practising, healing and sharing. The training is usually of small groups of between about 3 and 6 people so, while it’s still a very personal experience, you get the chance to practice with others and to have all your questions answered.

I support and encourage people who learn Reiki with me through a regular Reiki Share meeting. This is an opportunity to give and receive Reiki, to share experiences and to ask questions to aid you on your personal path.

I believe everything happens for a reason, and Elaine was brought into my life just at the right time. Doing the Reiki Level 1 course was one of the best things I have ever done and Elaine made it such a wonderful experience. She is so friendly and nothing is too much trouble, and the energy and warmth that radiates both from her and her lovely home is amazing. All teaching is easy to understand and Elaine’s communication and follow-up emails show how she cares about her students. Looking forward to Level 2, many thanks!

I approached Elaine about learning Reiki 1 to help one of my sick horses. Elaine is an amazing teacher, she answered all my questions (there were many!) with great knowledge and detail. I had an injury at the time of the course, but by the end of the weekend, through all the hands on practice, I had pretty much recovered. Using my newly tuned Reiki skills, I was able to further treat myself and healed within a week! Thanks again Elaine, I feel blessed to have found you as a teacher.
Amie Rolinson
I feel very lucky to have stumbled upon Elaine through the Internet to teach me Level One Reiki. She is a wonderful teacher, welcoming, friendly, informative and very easy to talk to; you feel comfortable around her immediately and you feel like no question is stupid. She makes you feel so welcome in her beautiful home and it is the perfect atmosphere to learn Reiki – it is so serene. I feel so grateful for this opportunity to be trained by Elaine it was the perfect introduction into Reiki and I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you for the constant support and encouragement!
Sammi Phillips
I could not have picked a better teacher and a better place. I could feel and understand everything you were talking about. You made this course a joyful experience. Thank you for the thorough teaching, the warm hospitality, the kindness, the willingness to give more and your openness.
Georgia Marlassi
Elaine creates a truly warm and welcoming atmosphere for her Reiki training. She provides detailed information on the subject matter, and is always eager to give more. Thoroughly knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly, she is very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend Elaine as a Reiki teacher.

I have just completed my first certificate in the usui system of natural healing, with Reiki Master Elaine Robinson. An excellent experience, I couldn’t have wished for a better teacher. I am grateful for this totally positive and enjoyable first step on my wonderful Reiki journey.
Cat Russell
I immediately felt comfortable with Elaine in her beautiful home, she was very welcoming. Her teaching method was concise even though Reiki is a rather fluid subject, and she went at my pace of learning. I found the attunements interesting and enlightening. Since being attuned and learning Reiki with Elaine, I have soothed my fear of flying substantially by being able to do Reiki during flights! I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Elaine as a Reiki Master.

Enhance and deepen your relationship with Reiki, with yourself and with others! This is an opportunity for personal growth, particularly the healing of inner thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and feelings that may be blocking the joyful expression of who you are. Usui Holy Fire Reiki is a new energy within Reiki that is profound, powerful and effective. It brings further expansion in your consciousness and spirituality, and enhances your abilities as a Reiki healing channel.

You are initiated into the three sacred symbols – the Power symbol to amp up your Reiki for physical healing, the Mental / Emotional symbol to bring harmony to mind and spirit, and the Distance Healing symbol which enables you to send Reiki distant healing to anyone or anything, no matter how far away.

I feel extremely lucky to have completed my level 2 reiki training with Elaine. She created such a warm and comfortable atmosphere to learn in and I felt so welcome in her home.  Elaine was able to answer all questions that I had and explained everything in a very clear way. The level 2 training was a wonderful experience and I am so excited to continue my reiki journey. I highly recommend Elaine as a reiki teacher to anyone who would like to deepen their understanding of reiki!
Bridget Leary, Wellington
I felt very ready for Level 2 with 7 months having passed since my Level 1 training – life had got in the way of doing it earlier as I had previously intended. Elaine was very accommodating with my needs and kept in touch by email, she is such a great communicator both verbally in training, and in writing. She had much patience with our group learning our symbols, and many great ideas for how to put them into practice. I had such a wonderful weekend and I’m so grateful to Elaine for bringing Reiki into my life. Many thanks too, to Ian for sharing his home with random strangers!
Ali King
It has been my pleasure to complete the Reiki second degree with Elaine. Elaine is a wonderful teacher – knowledgeable, warm and friendly, easy to connect with. The training sessions with Elaine have been enriching and enlightening. I would highly recommend Elaine to anyone interested in learning Reiki.
Elozor, Wellington
Thank you very much! It was a beautiful weekend full of energy and peace. You are a great master – thank you again for making me feel so comfy.
Silvana Paz, Wellington
I have thoroughly enjoyed you teaching us Reiki 2. It was yet again an eye/soul opener to all the different dimensions and potentials of the Human Energy. I was quite happy to sit down and listen to your teachings and experiences. You gave us the opportunity to completely feel open and free about our experiences. The hands on experience has helped me to retain a lot of things in my memory.
Georgia Marlassi
Thanks to you Elaine. Was an amazing experience. Everything I felt and lived during the course was magical and now feeling lucky to have this gorgeous energy that Reiki 2 brings to our life. Blessed and happy to have done the training with you.
Camila Highet
It had only been one month since Elaine instructed me through Level 1 Reiki but I felt I was ready for more! My reiki journey was rolling along at a wonderful pace, and I knew exactly who would be able to help guide me through Level 2. Elaine!!! Once again, Elaine was a wealth of knowledge, she never faltered when I went off track asking random questions, and has been a great support and an amazing teacher for me. Thanks, Elaine
Amie, Wellington
I had previously done Level I and II with another master when I lived overseas. It had been over a decade since I’d used Reiki and I decided it was time to focus on it again. Elaine did the Holy Fire Placement and reactivated my Level II symbols. We covered a plethora of useful information ranging from the history of Reiki and its evolution with the Holy Fire, to how to use it – some of this was quite surprising. One of the highlights for me, was chanting the names of the holy symbols. This was very powerful and I have since used it to great effect.

Overall I can thoroughly recommend Elaine as a teacher, mentor and colleague of Reiki. She has a jolly and gentle nature that instantly puts you at ease facilitating your learning. She is highly knowledgeable and more than that a skilled healing practitioner with two decades of work history behind her – you will do well in her hands if you choose to train with her.

Maya Hammarsal, Wellington
I have just completed level 2 Reiki training with Elaine. I found her teaching to be easily understood and comprehensive. Elaine has a welcoming approach and is always willing to listen, taking time to answer all my questions. I am very happy to recommend Elaine as a Reiki Master.
