The Exeter Reiki Centre is not just about Reiki as a treatment. We also offer training and courses at all levels of Reiki, for whatever you want Reiki for - whether it's purely to work on yourself, for your friends and family, or to work as a Reiki practitioner or Reiki Master. If you decide to learn Reiki, you get all the benefits of a Reiki treatment, daily, for free. At the level of Reiki First Degree you can treat yourself, and your friends and family, for free, as often as you like. Reiki Second Degree qualifies you to be a Reiki practitioner. Reiki Third Degree is the Master-Teacher level and can be made available on request, at £550, following an interview. The teachings of The Exeter Reiki Centre are based on the original Japanese system of Reiki. We use traditional Japanese ‘Reiju’ empowerments, follow the original Reiki teachings, and teach students to learn to use Reiki intuitively. We welcome all students at all levels, even if they have previously trained elsewhere. Each live course involves an element of home study prior to attending the course itself, and the relevant study materials are sent to students on receipt of their deposit for a place on a course. We take a maximum of 4 students per course for First and Second Degree; 6 for Creative Reiki and Refreshers courses.

We also offer special Reiki courses: Reiki Mums and Creative Reiki, several times a year. For more information on these courses, including forthcoming course dates, and for more on why you might want to learn Reiki in the first place, please click on the specific links and posters below.

As of December 2014, we are excited to announce that our Reiki First Degree course is now available as a Home-Study course, through online distance learning. This enables you to study and qualify with The Exeter Reiki Centre no matter where in the world you are based, or if this method of studying is simply more convenient for you.

You will cover everything we teach and practise on our live courses but in your own time, and from home. Distance learning allows you to fit your study around your family or work commitments, without needing to give up precious weekend time to attend a course in person. The course materials are identical to those provided in the study pack for the live course, and consist of a comprehensive 170-page manual and an audio CD sent to you through the post, both of which will be invaluable reference tools throughout your Reiki journey. In addition, home-study students receive in-depth instructions, breaking the course down into a series of stages, or projects, in which the student does some reading, listens to any relevant audio track, carries out practical energy exercises and then sends us feedback by email to let us know what they have done and what they experienced. All home-study training is one-to-one, and we tailor our email support to the individual student.

You will be able to progress at your own speed, gets loads of hands-on practice and receive one-to-one support via email. Rather than having the time available to you limited by the length of a live course, you will be able to spend as long as you like working with the various exercises, really getting to grips with them and assimilating each stage before you move on at your own pace. The course can take as long as you feel you need to complete it, but will normally take around 6 weeks. Lucie charges £145 for home study at Reiki First Degree level which covers her tuition fees for a period of one year from the date of enrolment. After that time, if you have not completed the course, you would need to enroll anew. The course requires you to carry out around 20 hours of background reading, and is based on carrying out a series of graded ‘energy projects’ totaling over 30 hours of practical energy work, which constitutes far more than students carry out on live Reiki training courses. You will be learning to work with energy and carrying out exercises with the energy most days, and will also be working regularly on other people and animals if this is something that particularly interests you. You will be provided with a series of distant empowerments and will earn a certificate of completion from The Exeter Reiki Centre.

Students finish our home-study courses having completed an abundance of practical exercises with Reiki, and confident in what they are doing. As with all our courses, Lucie remains on hand for advice and support as students go out into the world to use their Reiki. Please see our feedback page for comments from former students and email us with any questions at:


Reiki First Degree, Home-Study course, £145. Training can commence at any point in the year.


Please note that our manager, Lucie, is lucky enough to be involved full-time in an important research project from September 2017 until the summer of 2018. During this time there will be slightly fewer live courses on offer than usual, although our distant-learning quota remains unchanged. Please bear with us during this time and be patient if you were hoping to study with us soon! 

Thank you.
