Pre-Requisites: All lineages and Reiki Levels Welcome


The Way of Reiki Retreat is the perfect prescription for any practitioner, new or experienced, and from any lineage, especially those who are feeling:

like something is missing
have a desire to go deeper
are curious about the Japanese aspects of the Reiki system

By combining traditional Japanese Reiki practices and esoteric Japanese practices on which Mikao Usui based his teachings, Frans teaches us the why and how to practice to get the right results and what are those right results: to lay bare our big bright light.

The Way of Reiki retreat includes:

purification practices
visualization meditations
chanting Meditations
hands-on healing
breathing Meditations
and much more…

Side effects may include a profound change within yourself accompanied by feelings of luminosity and interconnection, the sensation of coming home, and a deeper understanding of the system of Reiki. In the long term, the retreats may cause a letting go of anger and worry and an increase in gratitude, authenticity, and compassion towards yourself and others.

Practitioners exposed to Frans’ joyful way of teaching may also experience increased levels of laughter and happiness.

This retreat is highly compatible with Frans’ new book: The Way of Reiki – The Inner Teachings of Mikao Usui.

Comments from Retreatees

“I got so much from the retreat… such depth and full energetic realizations. I uncovered a buried trauma that has to effect me on so many levels probably most of the time. You taught us so many tools and methods, techniques and meditations to help us heal and expand in our inner spiritual growth…. I feel like I have what I need to help support my healings in this area, as well as ALL areas. This path just keeps getting deeper and wider, yet more and more expansive. In your teachings, you take such powerful spiritual teachings that have the ability to tap into our inner essence and soul, and make them attainable to all of us with such a fun, light spirited delivery. You support us by letting us feel that depth by your being it, holding that space for us. You are incredibly inspirational and I feel very blessed to be one of your students. Thank-you for being True to your way and you’re being and sharing it so fully with us! “- Sarah Dailey

“Retreat was an amazing 4 days of personal healing, deepening purpose & practice, disintegrating into five elements and integrating back again thru energy exercises, chanting, meditations and hands on healing.
