Reiki Lineage

Filed under Reiki & Meditation

I’m so grateful to all of my Reiki Teachers along the way! I’ve been teaching Reiki and meditation for 25 years.

Here you’ll find my Reiki training and lineage information:

  • Reiki I, Reiki II, Master, and Teacher training with Marnie Vincolisi (I took the first three levels in 1997 and completed the Teacher level in 1998).
  • Reiki III and Teachers with Tracie Hagie (2000)
  • Reiki I and II (2015) and Holy Fire Reiki Master and Teacher (2020) with William Lee Rand
  • Reiki I with Pamela Miles (2022)
  • Reiki I, II, III, and Teacher with Inamoto Hyakuten (2023)

I’ve incorporated teachings and class experiences from Marnie Vincolisi, William Lee Rand, Pamela Miles, and Inamoto Hyakuten (the founder of Komyo Reikido) and embraced the style of my first teacher while updating my knowledge through practice and continued learning through the years.

I’m a lifelong learner, yet I practice beginner’s mind and repeat Reiki with different teachers to round out my perspective and enrich the student experience.

In Japan, Reiki is called Usui Reiki Ryoho. To me, all Reiki is essentially the same essence.

My lineages include:

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

Additional Lineage:

Lisa Guyman
William Lee Rand
Kimiko Koyama Hiroshi Doi
Kan’ichi Taketomi
Dr. Mikao Usui

And this lineage (most recent):

Lisa Guyman
Hyakaten Inamoto
Dr. Chujiro Hayashi
Dr. Mikao Usui

I’ve studied with five different Reiki Teachers and am a member of the International Association of Reiki Professionals.

My first teacher in Reiki took Reiki levels I and II from a woman with a direct lineage to Takata’s grandaughter and took her Master and Teacher courses in Germany from a lineage that cannot be traced, i.e., what is known as a ‘non-tradititional’ lineage. I consider this my main lineage and a Western form of Reiki, so for the most part, it’s non-traditional, but to me, Reiki is Reiki, and all classes essentially entail the same learning/teachings.


Gratitude to Mikao Usui


I am grateful for Mikao Usui’s life path, which led him to discover Reiki. He was a dedicated, devoted, passionate, helpful, wise soul who had a deep yearning to connect to what is beyond. And for finding a way to share healing and light both near and far.

Reiki spread far and wide once Mikao Usui began sharing it in Japan in 1922. His impact is experienced today across the globe. May all of those who practice or teach Reiki honor his life by sharing Reiki in its brilliant wisdom, simplicity, and love.
