Karuna Reiki®

What is Karuna Reiki®?

Karuna Reiki® was developed and brought to our conscious awareness by William Lee Rand and the International Centre for Reiki Training back in 1994. It reaches a very deep, cellular level of healing whilst supporting compassion for oneself and others. This beautiful, inter-dimensional energy system is taught with Holy Fire® III and is offered only to those who have been practising Usui Reiki Masters for at least six months and feel the call to take their healing a step further. 

The word "Karuna" is a Sanskrit word that translates to "compassionate action". The system itself reaches the second vibrational band of Reiki, which makes Karuna Reiki® more than just an energy healing system and more of a bridge to connect you to your highest vibration guides and teachers.

Karuna Reiki® Attunements/Placements

Traditionally, the Karuna attunement worked in a very similar way to the traditional Usui one. However, since the Holy Fire III energy came to us, we are now able to use the ignition/placement to effectively attune students to the Karuna system. Holy Fire® III and Karuna Reiki® greatly synergise on a very deep level which creates a powerful connection with your authentic self.


As with Holy Fire®, Karuna Reiki® has no lineage as such. A lineage refers to the person who first channelled an energy whereas with Karuna Reiki®, no one did this originally. The lineage remains with William Lee Rand and the International Centre for Reiki Training.

I offer Karuna Reiki® training for groups and one to ones, both online and face to face. The course is particularly effective online as well as face to face, as you will receive powerful ignitions which will allow you to teach all levels of Reiki online if you desire.
