Thank you so much for a wonderful experience on Sunday, I found it fascinating and empowering, and have been practising. This morning I awoke and lay in bed doing self-healing Reiki. And I have an intention to make this a part of my daily routine so thank you for teaching me this practice.

May I  thank you for the wonderful gift of Reiki you gave me on Sunday. It was a wonderful experience and a wonderful introduction to something I hope will now form part of the structure of my life ahead. I am practising already to the best of my limited ability and welcome the journey ahead. Today, on day one, my mind wanders during self-healing, but in time I will get much better.                                                         Kor N.  Edinburgh

I have been receiving Reiki from Maija for many years now. It has helped me in so many ways so much so that this year I decided to learn the incredible healing system for myself. What a brilliant day I had. Maija created a peaceful environment in which to learn. She had a great way of explaining everything, giving a good understanding of which to build. The notes are thorough, clear and easy to process, everything you want when starting something new. I am looking forward to my first meet up to practice and get advice on moving forward and developing my skills in the system. :)                            Holly T.    Manchester

Thank you for the training session today. It was a very intense session for me, full of knowledge, wisdom, relatable examples, experiences and practices. After the session, I felt like I had come for a retreat. It was so refreshing and in a way, you answered all of the questions I had in mind - about my own well being, about life in general, about being gentle towards myself, about staying in the present moment.    Thank you!

Reiki is a whole new world and once you start you can develop your skills all your life. However, in just one day, Maija managed to explain it all in a very understandable and easy to follow way. We were part of the process from the very beginning, interacting in discussions and later on practising as well. The atmosphere was very relaxing. Being a small group helped me to easily open up and share personal thoughts and experiences. I will strongly recommend the course because you can learn a lot about yourself, about who you are and whom you’d like to be. You can learn how to develop your instincts and trust them. I don’t think many people give themselves a lot of credit but you should start by learning how to love yourself first. For me, the journey has just begun.                                             Iliana V. Devon

Thank you, Maija for a wonderful course with you yesterday.  Annie and I are really inspired by your teaching and we feel very grateful to you.  I have started the 21 days of healing and am practising also on a sickly peace lily that forgot to get water.                         Ellie  C. Edinburgh
