Sea's Reiki Lineage

Because the ability to do Reiki is passed from master to student, Reiki is a lineage-based system. It is important to honor those who came before us, paving the way for our progress today. Wisdom, Compassion, and Healing are often hard-won. I am grateful for the teaching and heritage I have been gifted in Reiki. 

Lineage is one of the things that I pass on to my students.
For those who are my students, the lineage described below is yours too. Just add me to the mix!

I received my Reiki Master Teacher training from:

Helen Klayman

I received Karuna Reiki ® training from William Lee Rand. I also received Reiki training from Reiki Masters Joan Weiss and Susan Ruth.

In addition, I would like to honor my meditation teacher of many years, Drew Rose, currently of Atlantic City NJ, who taught me many things that have enriched my Reiki practice and teaching, most especially the filtering meditation that helps us to protect ourselves as we heal ourselves and others.


I value and respect all Reiki healers, regardless of lineage, so long as they are working to promote healing -- their own and others'.

William Lee Rand and me, 2011.

Due to the pandemic we have temporarily suspended our in-person events. ‚ÄčThere's just no good substitute for in-person Reiki Training. If you want to participate in Reiki Practice & Share events virtually via Zoom this Summer, please join the free meetup group . Until then, stay safe, spend some time just breathing, being & feeling, and spread Light where you can. When it is safe again to do so, I hope to assist you in taking the next steps of your healing journey.

Healing Blessings,
