UK Reiki Federation Annual Conference and Reiki Celebration Week

Love, Care & Compassion - 18-24 September 2021
We warmly invite all UK Reiki Federation members to join us for our Annual Conference and Reiki Celebration week via zoom. The theme this year is ‘looking after each other’. We will once again be welcoming amazing international reiki guest speakers including Johannes Reindl – Lineage Bearer in Usui Shiki Ryoho.

Johannes is the Lineage Bearer in Usui Shiki Ryoho. The title of lineage bearer was passed to Johannes Reindl from Phyllis Furumoto.

The lineage passed from Mikao Usui – Chujirro Hayashi – Hawayo Takata – Phyllis Furumoto – Johannes Reindl. The purpose is “ensuring that the integrity and potential of this simple practice of Reiki be preserved and kept vital in the present and for future generations”.

All current UK Reiki Federation members will be invited to this free event and emailed zoom links. Details will also be in the members area on our website. These events are shared as a member only benefit. Non-members wishing to attend can join the Federation Here

1200 - Looking after each other - Laurence Fontaine

Laurence began practicing Reiki in 1990 and has been a Reiki Master since 2001. She is trilingual and has served as a translator and interpreter for The Reiki Alliance, the Office of the Grandmaster and international Reiki gatherings since 1990. She is a psychotherapist with a Masters in Psychology, with specialties in Continuum Movement, Core Energetics and Family Constellations. At present her focus is fostering dynamics that sustain the development of individuals, families, and communities.

As practitioners of a healing art, we all have an internal desire and experience to be there for others, to respond to their needs and place our hands over their body to alleviate their ailments. 


  • How do we understand the concept of “looking after each other” from a personal perspective?
  • How do we understand this concept as Reiki practitioners, mentors, and teachers?
  • Where does this desire come from? 
  • What is the motivation?
  • What are the subterranean thoughts and feelings driving us to come together to serve the preservation of life? 
  • What do we need to develop in ourselves and our communities to serve this purpose? 
1300 - Hawayo Takata - Susan and Paul Mitchell

Susan learned Reiki from Hawayo Takata. She was the first director of The Reiki Alliance from 1988-1998.   She helped curate the Hawayo Takata archives housed at the University of California, Santa Barbara and edited In Her Own Voice, A Tribute to Phyllis Lei Furumoto, 1948-2019.   

Paul and Susan were students of Hawayo Takata in the 1970s. They will share stories of their time with her and give you a taste of who she was to the two of them and the impact she has had on all of us who practice Reiki in the west.

Reiki Celebration Week – 20-24 September 2021 via zoom

Monday 20 September | 1900-1945hrs | Reiki Share with Jo Fellow

Reiki Share is a wonderful opportunity for us all to join to simply give and receive Reiki to help nurture, heal and support you, as well as others.
Hosted by our Distance Healing Coordinator Jo Fellows, this 45mins practice includes cleansing our energy meridians, a Reiki meditation and Reiki healing. Jo talks you through the process, and you’re welcome to follow her voice, or simply relax – either seated or lying down, whichever is more relaxing for you – and allow the energy to flow. There is no pressure for you to do anything. Jo doesn’t play music, as it can break up over the internet, so if you have a favourite piece of music to listen to please do use it.

You’re welcome to set your intention that the practice is for your own highest good, or for that of others – the choice is yours.

Friday 24 September | 1800-1900hrs | Shibashi Qigong with Warren Swartz

Shibashi Qigong is born out of Qigong and Tai chi. Its gentle movements are accessible to everyone, and its health benefits are certainly as appealing as its energetic benefits. Said to delay the ageing process and its age-related diseases by increasing the bodies DHEA levels, it additionally strengthens the heart, liver, lungs and kidneys along with their related functions. It increases weight loss, aids digestion and strengthens ligaments and tendons while aiding balance and muscular strength. It has phenomenal potential to boost vital energy and improve mental state.

It would be a delight for me to take you on a journey of discovery with this simple easy to follow Qigong routine. All you will need is a comfortable room free of distractions, about 6 square foot clear of obstacles and some comfortable clothing to practice this routine. I will ensure that the form will be shared in an easy-to-follow way with clear instructions to ensure both your safety and enjoyment.

Warren is a Reiki master, Nature connector, meditation and mindfulness coach, British Health Qigong instructor and Shibashi Qigong teacher.
