For students to be able to fully immerse themselves into the training, practice and meditation techniques, the Usui Reiki Academy Surrey offers a residential retreat at the stunning Buckland House in Devon. Exclusively ours for the duration of the course, Buckland House offers extensive grounds of 280 acres with its own lake for those adventurous enough to take the boat out and woodlands to get in touch with nature. A grand but homely and welcoming country manor with views reaching towards Dartmoor.
Non-residential private or small group courses may be available throughout the year in Surrey if you are unable to join the retreat. Please contact for more details.
For those living locally who would also like to join the course but do not want to stay the night, please contact directly.
This intensive Reiki Master/Teacher course aims to give students the tools to find deeper understanding and awareness through exploring advanced techniques, practice and philosophies giving 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.
Completing this course does not mean that students will suddenly find enlightenment at the end of it, although there may be moments of it! 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 that deeper inner awareness and guides us on the spiritual path to Self-Mastery.
The retreat itself is designed to be a relaxed home from home where the only thing you need to focus on is your own development, all catering etc will be taken care of during your stay.
Students will receive a detailed Master manual, support and guidance, additional optional evening workshops, full vegetarian/vegan board and at the end receive the Master/Teacher certification. After the course students will have access to ongoing 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.

How to Get There
Buckland House is located very much in the heart of the Devon countryside and difficult to get to via public transport. With this in mind, I am arranging car sharing or if this is not possible and enough people wish to go by mini bus transport from Guildford to Buckland House at an extra cost of around £60.00 per person, this can be arranged. Please do let me know if this is a requirement for you. Alternatively if you wish to drive, please see the details below and if you would be happy to car/cost share, please let me know and I will organise this too.
Please be aware that my Sat Nav when typing in the post code for the property did not take me to the house. It was better to type in Buckland Fillegh which took me straight to the property.
Check in is at 4pm on the Monday and Check out is at 10am on the Friday. The journey takes about 4 hours with no stops so please leave in plenty of time to arrive for 4pm. AA provides a very good route planner should you wish to plan your journey before you book.
Any questions, please do get in touch!
