REIKI (a Japanese word meaning 'universal life energy') is a form of healing and spiritual awakening that reinforces the body's natural ability to heal itself at all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, bringing us into balance and harmony. It is passed on through specific initiation rites, teachings and defined forms of practice. THE REIKI ASSOCIATION (TRA) is a membership organisation offering community and support for Reiki students, masters and practitioners, with an Annual Gathering, smaller regional gatherings and one-day events. Membership includes subscription to Reiki Magazine International. We also offer advice to members of the public interested in learning or receiving Reiki.
