The Reiki Association is a community of people initiated into Reiki, both in the UK, and as part of the worldwide Reiki family.
As a not-for-profit organisation we support Reiki practitioners and those exploring a life with Reiki as a spiritual practice and healing art.
We also facilitate connection between people with Reiki so that they may share experiences, learn, support and find friendship with other Reiki people.
If you are new to Reiki, or unfamiliar with it, we hope you will find all you need to know on our pages.
The TRA website, and particularly its interactive areas, has been mainly created for our members where they can take part in forums, post comments, send messages, join groups, organise shares, read about events, advertise or find a Reiki practice, classes or treatments.
For many, membership of TRA brings a valuable sense of being part of the wider Reiki community but if you are not yet a member, our main menu will lead you to all the public areas of this website including our Reiki Directory and Events pages.
The Reiki Association (TRA) was established in 1991. It grew out of a desire from Reiki students and Masters to be active in the support of Reiki and to create a Reiki community. TRA is now a vibrant association serving its members in the UK and overseas bringing a valuable sense of connection and of being part of a wider Reiki community.
There are now many variations of Reiki. Membership is open to Reiki students who have been initiated into Reiki in the physical presence of their Master. The core system of TRA is Usui Shiki Ryoho in the lineage Usui, Hayashi, Takata, Furumoto. This Reiki system was passed down by Hawayo Takata to her granddaughter Phyllis Furumoto, the current Lineage Bearer.
TRA is a not-for-profit organization. An elected Council of up to 6 people, who each hold office for 3 years, manage the general business. The work is carried out by the Circle of Service, some of whom are volunteers and some are paid part time staff. We welcome volunteers to join the Circle of Service.
The Association is not just here for people working as Reiki practitioners, although support for practitioners is one of our roles. We also foster the ‘folk art’ or informal practice of Reiki for people who treat their family and friends or even perhaps just themselves. ALL aspects of Reiki practice are important for us: folk art/student practice, public practice and professional practice.
