Coming from a different Reiki teacher or lineage?

Please see our Reiki Centre pre-requisites below.

The Reiki Levels Pre-requisites

Reiki Lineage


If you have learnt Reiki from any teacher Elaine G Hamilton has trained personally you can proceed to the next level of your training with us without any additional pre-requisites.

Reiki 2 (Advanced)


If you took Reiki 1 from another Reiki teacher who has the same lineage (Usui-Hayashi-Takata) you may join the Reiki 2 class with a minimum of two months Reiki 1 practice. It is highly recommended you download and read my book Reiki, Pure and SImple.

If you have Reiki 1 from a different lineage ('Japanese' Reiki, Tummo, Karuna, Angelic etc) you must begin your journey with us from Reiki 1. Each lineage has different attunements and foundations even though they are all grouped under 'Reiki'.


Reiki 3

If you took Reiki 2 from another Reiki teacher who has the same lineage (Usui-Hayashi-Takata) you need to send us your certificate for verification.

You can then either enrol and complete Elaine's online Reiki 2 course, or attend a face to face Reiki 2 class at least one month before the Reiki 3 class begins (we offer a 20% discount for repeat Reiki students).

Reiki 3 is the first step to Master training and your symbols, attunements and theory is best aligned to our lineage.

Reiki Master Teacher Training

You need to have completed Reiki 3 with the Reiki Centre or any teacher trained through our lineage.

Reiki Practitioner Diploma

This diploma is open to any Reiki lineage as long as you can show me your Reiki Level 2 or higher certificate
