The Course

This intensive and internationally recognised Reiki Master/Teacher course aims to give students the tools to find deeper understanding and awareness through exploring advanced techniques, practice and philosophies which provides students with a deeper insight into the System of Reiki. Students will receive their Master attunement, and by the end of the course, will have learnt how to teach and attune others.

Becoming a "Master" means to master the self, through right action and thought, until with practice and dedication it is no longer a state of doing but a state of being. It is by this means that the System of Reiki gives us the tools to help us find deep inner awareness and guides us on our spiritual path. 

Students can now practice on each other in person under current legislation and must wear PPE. All will also be taught Covid-19 Awareness. Those learning Shinpiden level, will be taught how to teach the additional Covid-19 awareness element and given full guidance as it stands at the time of the course to comply with the government guidelines.

Whats included?

Students will receive a detailed Master manual, support and guidance and individually wrapped refreshments throughout the 4 days. At the end of the course, students will receive an internationally recognised Master/Teacher certificate and ongoing guidance beyond the course, where students will have access to further support via email or telephone for as long as is needed, 25% off future private treatments with Amanda and opportunities to attend Reiki shares.

What Students Said About Their Master/Teacher Course Retreat Experience

"In March 2019 I attended my masters course at Buckland House in Devon. It was a 4 day retreat in a beautiful manor in beautiful surroundings. Amanda was the perfect host and provided a manageable infantry, allowing time for questions and any personal time we needed with her and once again her knowledge and her own journey were shared unconditionally. I found the whole experience one of the best things I have ever done and the memories will stay with me forever xx Thank you my angel for showing me a way forward, for always being there and for doing what you do. Much love and blessings xxx"

"Wish I had 6 stars, an amazing week away at Buckland House learning Reiki Master level with Amanda White. She was quite brilliant, and teaches both Japanese and Western Reiki, so many teachers just teach Western Lineage. She is incredibly thorough in all her research, and knows this subject so well. I learnt so much more than I expected, and would not want anyone else to teach me, I really can`t wait to learn more. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Reiki at any level."

"I just finished master course with Amanda. I was looking for a master that will have the time to talk explain and go trough any unclear details with me personally and in the group.And indication of her always genuinely felt approach before the master course was confirmed. She went with me before the master course trough any missing part of my knowledge { that was rushed over in previous courses by other master} to get me ready for the last stage all without any extra payment. All that wants confirmed,reinforced by the direct experience during the course.Amanda is relaxed without any ego to prevent her to go up and down to any level of her student and doesn't consider herself as some master but always maintain that is constantly learning and that include our experiences and insights and that her major message is that the course itself is only the spark that start the fire but it is our personal journey afterwards the care for it. On practical level the course was well prepared. Starting with a dreamlike location. Each person had plenty space to relaxed. Meals were prepared during the whole day. So there was no distraction from the task we all were there. Amanda took extra care of choosing the best suitable rooms for different tasks. It was such good choice that the attunement was done in separate space that will be now linked the space infinity opening experience. The whole event was even more growing afterwards just seeing the effect on Amanda herself on the others. You could see the energy also working before the course as it choose the most genuine caring people without being too sweet or spaced out or too physical but just wanting to know. Any last confusion how to use and care for Reiki energy was blown away and I am so grateful Amanda for the amazing you gave me. If you feel your current master is too businesslike cool detached without time to spend with you then Amanda is your choice."
