Courses taught in a relaxed style and environment, in groups of no more than 10 to give plenty of support and with time for questions and discussion. 

Courses and workshops will take place at St Martins Community Hall, East Horsley, Surrey. 

Everyone senses Reiki and receives intuitive information differently, so I feel its important to endeavour to help students to find and grow their personal strengths and heighten awareness in areas which are unique to each individual.
