Reiki Lineage

In Japan Reiki is called Usui Reiki Ryoho. And to me all Reiki is essentially the same in essence, but here is my particular lineage:

My main teacher for Reiki took her First and Second Degree Reiki from a woman with direct lineage to Takata’s grandaughter (and thus Usui Reiki Ryoho) and then she took her Masters and Teachers courses in Germany from a lineage that cannot be traced i.e. what is known as a ‘non-tradititional’ lingeage. This non-traditional lineage is some times referred to as Liberty Reiki. I consider this my main lineage so for the most part it’s non-traditional, not directly traceable, but Reiki is Reiki.  My primary teacher was Marnie Vincolisi.

I’ve also taken Reiki I/II with William Lee Rand, Usui Reiki teacher.

And Reiki Masters/Teachers workshop with Traci Hagie that is traditional Usui lineage (Usui Reiki Ryoho). My lineage is technically traceable to traditional Reiki though I do follow the teaching format of my first teacher because it resonated with me.

The fully traceable lineage for Master/Teacher goes like this:

Traci Hagie
Lynn Chandler
Sara Beth Shepard
Joy Marie
Laurie Grant (I actually took two weekend Arch Energy Healing intensives with Laurie)
James Davis
Arthur Robinson
Virginia Samdahl and Iris Ishikuru
Hawayo Takata
Chujiro Hayashi
Mikao Usui
