Student comments -
after the comments you will find all info on the Practitioner
and Masters training:
Karuna symbols took Reiki into a new dimension for me
- from soothing, relaxing and self-healing to being
able to work quite targeted with certain problem areas.
Going through the Karuna Reiki® training helped
me redefine myself as a healer or more so as light-
or energy worker even if I am not in a clasical healing
role. Thanks Sandra!"
"It was the most phenomenal experience, it has
completely enhanced and empowered my ability to heal
myself and others. The course was over and above my
expectations. It seems over and above Usui Reiki Masters
on the path to enlightment and self-worth. Love,
light and happiness." Amrita (Karuna Reiki®
Harinder comments on the Karuna Reiki Masters course over 3 days, after the first day she coments:
Thank you so much for the work you did on me last Saturday during the Karuna Reiki course. I feel like a sack of potatoes has been lifted off my shoulders. I've been carrying that heaviness around with me for so long it felt such a relief when it was gone. I noticed on Monday morning that I felt so much lighter. I am focussing on shifting the 'fog' (also much less than before Saturday) and keeping my focus in my heart centre as opposed to in my head. Looking forward to the last two days of the course.
overall comments of the whole course from Harinder:
”It has been a pleasure receiving the information and attunements for Karuna Reiki from Sandra. Her knowledge, preparation, assistance, love and patience has been outstanding. She gives so freely of her time and healing energy. I feel like she has shifted some deeply ingrained patterns within me as I feel so different today – at the end of the course. She intuitively picked up the areas/issues that I needed working on and has left me in a new, more peaceful and joyous state. The most positive experience was the huge energy shift in my solar plexus, my head/shoulders and my heart. It was a very rewarding course. Life changing!
I am exited by the new symbols and surprisingly, about using the chanting and toning techniques. I will be putting these into practice straight away both on myself and my clients. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you."
"I was ready to do Karuna Reiki® and I have
not been disappointed. Karuna Reiki® takes you to
another level of development and I am keen to explore
it now with the new symbols. It seems to be that by
doing this work I accept myself more as a healer and
I accept the work that it implies. It was easy with
Sandra's teaching and very enjoyable. Many thanks."
"Very well taught in very condusive environment.
Makes the course well worth it. Brought out the beauty
of Karuna Reiki®. Thank you Sandra and God bless."Joana
(after practitioner I)
"I thought the course was well structured and easy
to take in. It gave a destinct idea and feel of the
individual symbols and an opportunity to expierience
them at an individual level. She shadow self guided
meditation I felt was effective and beneficial. All
in all I thoroughly enjoyed the day and felt it was
worthwhile. As a practitioner, this course will greatly
enhance my ability to help others. Being attuned to
the symbols and feeling their particular energies is
a great experience. The intensitiy of the energy of
these symbols came as a beautiful surprise as the benefits
manifested very quickly" .
CHANTING: As a new experience it came as a pleasant
surprise to see it demonstated and working. The experience
of taking part in it and using it will stay with me
for a long time. After the chanting I felt as if I have
had a good stretch and was relieved."
TONING: Also a new experience and a pleasant and effective
one. I felt the benefits right there and then. Joanna
(after practitioner II).

Zoe after the Masters class
Zoe writes after
day 1 (Master class):
Before coming to the ssession, I had a cery clear vision
of Kuan Yin and a lotus flower. Her Message was that
wisdom is attained by quit open waiting, not grasping
- a perfect introduction tothe Karuna energy.
Sandra's teaching, as always, was very clear - we went
through each of the 1st four symbols and I could clearly
feel the energy of each. Much stronger than the Usui
symbols and I coudl feel each one straight away. When
practising on Sandra, I was aware of a much greater
energy field around myself and her, and also felt the
power of the symbols even across the room. In the attunement,
I was intensely aware of the presence of ascended masters
- particularly Kuan Yin, Jesus, Mary, Archangel Michael
and Gabriel - and other guides there to help. I was
also aware of part of me moving into a completely different
dimension. There have been intense shifts of old energy
stuff over the last 24 hours and more is coming up all
the time. I feel that I can clear a lot of past life
trauma and contracts with the help of Karuna.There it
is a new sense of the compassion of this energy. Sandra
showed me a grounding exercise using the Rama symbol
which was veyr powerful for me, I hadn't realised how
much of my essence was outside my body until this exercise
which realigned my chakras so that I could feel the
healing earth energy flowign up through my body and
grounding me. I felt much clearer and more focused at
the end of this meditation.
This has been an incredible course - very very powerful,
and I am SO glad I have done it. I feel hugely helped
along the ascension path and feel that I can grow as
a healer in every way with Karuna Reiki®
to help. Zoe
Maha writes after Practitioner I and II:
How would you describe your experience in this class
to a friend?
Relaxing, calming, encouraged meto do things I didn't
think of before, love myself more
What was the most positive experience you had in this
Loving and finding myself.
What improvements would you recommend in this class
or the teacher's presentation?
Everything was excellent.
It was an excellent, amazing experience with my teacher
Sandra. She was patient with me a lot, loving person,
helpful, so sweet. I learnt from her how to love myself
more and think of my own life without the others. I
learnt new techniques and ways of becoming a more powerful
healer and a stronger person. Those 3 days were the
most important days in the whole year because I focused
on myself and the rest of the year I was busy all the
time helping and helping other people and my family.
I didn't have time for myself but thanks to Sandra I
found myself here with her.
I even knew the reason why I overeat when she experienced
the shadow self with me. It felt great and now I know
how to deal with it. Thank you Sandra a lot a lot a
lot for being so gentle, kind and patient with me. I
am so happy that I did this course with you. Maha
"I felt Karuna Reiki® practitioner I + II was
more powerful and worked on a much deeper level to Usui
Reiki. I especially enjoyed the chanting and toning
where I could feel the sound vibrating through my energy
field. I feel I will practice with Karuna Reiki®
on friends/family/clients as the energy is very powerful,
living and peaceful. Thank you Sandra for a wonderful
2 days of Karuan Reiki® Practitioner I and II. I
feel it is the next step on my spiritual & healing
journey through this early life. I look forward to practicing
my chanting/toning on you in the near future!"
"Wow! A whole
new tool box to use with my Reiki practice. Sandra presented
everything very clearly and gave plenty of time for
getting to grips with the practice side. I felt safe
at all times, every question has been answered comprehensively.
It is inspiring to witness how strongly Sandra holds
a space and really gets to the heart of issues."
"Thank you so much dear Sandra,
I can not thank you enough, the whole
week-end was such an amazing experience, and I can feel
all the healing
that is taking place. All the best, love Nusa."
"Sandra was very knowledgeable,
professional at all times. She was careful
to balance theory and practice. Sandra connected easily
with all participants and made us all feel relaxed and
The instructor was knowledgeable about the material presented:
Yes, absolutely! The material was wonderfully presented and Sandra had no problem with explaining things in different ways if necessary.
The instructor answered questions effectively, and lovingly:
Yes! At no time did I ever feel I was asking a 'silly' question. Sandra was full of patience and love with me.
The class provided sufficient hands-on exerperience and practice.
I was fortunate to have one-to-one tuition with Sandra and felt relaxed - as if we had 'all the time in the world' to practise with the energies.
How would you describe your experience in this class to a friend?
As very different to anything I have done before! The room we worked in was a peaceful haven. The energies were intense at times and I always felt safe.
What was the most positive experience you had in this class?
I felt an incredible release when 'toning' and particularly enjoyed the stuff occuring within myself when Sandra was toning whilst healing me.
What improvements would you recommend in the class or the teachers' presentation?
Thank you so much Sandra for sharing your wonderful gift with me (and for your patience!!). Louise
is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism, Buddhism
and Zen. It is translated to mean any action that
is taken to diminish the suffering of others and
could also be translated as "compassionate action".
When individuals experience enlightenment, they report
that all beings are known as one. As we help others
and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit.
Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood
that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love,
but also because it is an entirely logical thing to
do. In the same way that you would want to heal your
own wounds, you would also want the wounds of others
to heal. It is also stated in the Buddhist literature
that Karuna must be accompanied by parjna or wisdom
in order to have the right effect.
the motivating quality of all enlightened beings who
are working to end suffering on Earth. They continually
send an unlimited amount of healing energy and guidance
to us, but not all are receptive to it. As you develop
Karuna in yourself, not only are you helping others,
but you also become more receptive to the Karuna that
is being sent by all enlightened beings. Thus your healing
Reiki® opens you to work more closely with all enlightened
beings. This includes those enlightened ones who
are physically present as well as those in spirit.
of the Karuna System of Reiki
The Karuna system of Reiki was developed by William
L. Rand. The symbols were channeled by several Reiki
masters, including Marcy Miller, Kellie-Ray Marine,
Pat Coutney, Catherine Mills Bellamont, and Maria Abraham.
William used the symbols and found them to have value,
but felt that they had greater potential than had been
previously accessed. He meditated on them and was guided
to develop the attunement process and to call the new
system Karuna Reiki®. Some of the symbols used in
Karuna Reiki® are used in other systems, but they
do not have the same effectiveness or healing energies
as in the Karuna system. Karuna Reiki® energy is

their guides, angels, and higher self and feel the healing

taught as a two-day course, cost £170:
Karuna Reiki® Practitioner I
Four new symbols are taught that have a range of
specific uses such as (in this website the symbols are
not named or drawn).:
Symbol 1: is a good symbol to use at the beginning
of a treatment as it prepares the client to receive
deep healing. It also reduces or eliminates the pain
associated with emotional healing by creating a kind
of spiritual anesthetic effect. It works on hidden issues
that have become imbedded in the cells of our bodies
(memory of trauma, negative feelings and ideas that
we brought with us from other lives). Symbol1 can be
combined with the Usui distant symbol to send powerful
healing energy, child abuse (unable to deal with consciously
and therefore buried feelings).Call upon Archangel Gabriel
and ask him to take the karma of the issue and heal
if for you. Ask also that if there is a lesson or understanding
that is necessary for you to have in order for the healing
to take place that it be made known to you. Symbol 1
prepares the client to receive the deep healing available
from Symbol 2
Symbol 2: works in many ways like Symbol1, but on
a much deeper and more powerful level. It breaks up
negative patterns in the unconscious mind which we use
to insulate ourselves from the truth. This helps to
shatter delusion and denial, while helping heal the
shadow self. It helps us accept that imperfect part
of ourself so we can bring it into our conscious mind,
love it and heal it (often in sacral chakra), heals
sexual and physical abuse, the only reason we are psychically
attacked is because we are creating it. It can help
us release the part of ourself that is creating the
psychic attack, heal it and release it to the Higher
Power. It can activate a laser-like beam of healing
light to heal tumors and cysts and many other imbalances.
When used with the psychic surgery technique it takes
on the energy of a spiritual surgery tool which has
the ability to break through even the densest concentration
of less than light energies. It goes to an area that
contains less than light energy and fills it with a
very focused, concentrated beam of light which dissipates
the denser energy. Fill this area with love by using
Symbol 3: heals the heart and all issues relating
to the heart. It can also be used to fill in a healed
area with love were negative energy or blocks have been
removed. Can be used to heal relationships of all kinds.
Use along with the Usui distant symbol to send the energy
of the symbol to the relationship. If you want to develop
a good habit, the best way to do this is to allow yourself
to love what you want to do. If there is a habit you
would like to create for yourself, write it on a piece
of paper, put it between your hands and send the energy
to it. Do this everyday, and also spend time doing the
thing you want to develop a habit for. Heal addictions
- life isn't fulfilling the love that they need. It
will restore the balance within their heart so that
they love life. Use Usui distant symbol to send the
energy of the symbol to the addiction. It can be used
to receive blessings from spiritual beings such as Mother
Mary, Kuan Yin, and Avalokiteshvara who are the embodiment
of compassionate action. Use the Usui distant symbol
to send symbol 3 to these spiritual beings. Ask for
their blessing so your heart will be healed and you
will be better able to help others.
Symbol 4: :Grounding. It is excellent to use at
the end of a session.Heals lower charkas helping a person
be more fully present, alert and focused. By using the
symbol on the clients feet, the feet charkas are opened
and this will pull the person back into their body.
This technique also pulls negative energy or blockages
from anywhere in the person's energy system out the
feet and can often release pain. Clear a room of negative
energies.Harmonizes upper charkas with lower chakras.
As the symbol clears the lower chakras, it allows the
higher consciousness of the upper chakra to manifest
in the physical world. It also helps us release fear
of success and fear of failure. It empowers us to actualise
our spiritual purpose here on Earth and to make use
of Divine guidance in our everyday lives. Manifest Material
Goals and creates determination and completion. It helps
us take the first step toward our goal, and assists
us in remaining focused throughout the entire process
so we can complete the things we start. Archangel Michael

will be taught, you will receive one attunement that
will enable you to channel the energy of the four learned
symbols for yourself and others. There will be plenty
of practice in the course. We will also learn the "Shadow
Self Meditation" using one specific symbol.
Shadow Self Guided Meditation
Students activate specific healing symbol and place
their hands on themselves during the meditation intending
that Reiki will flow throughout the entire meditation.
We have all heard it said that we create our own reality,
yet occasionally we have unwanted experiences - experiences
that may be painful, and limiting in some way. Often,
we don't know how we created these experiences, or what
we can do to stop them. There is a feeling of being
powerless over them and sometimes it feels like something
or someone else outside ourselves is creating these
negative experiences for us. When things like this happen,
we are still creating our own reality, but we are cut
off from the part of ourselves that is creating the
unwanted experiences. We create our own reality not
only with our conscious mind, but also with our subconscious
mind. So, a more accurate statement about our creative
powers might be, "The sum total of our being is the
absolute master of our experience". This includes both
those parts of ourself we are aware of and those parts
we are not aware of. If we are to heal ourselves
from creating unwanted experiences, then we must be
willing to deal with the unconscious parts of our mind
and heal them. The part of the mind responsible
for creating our unwanted experiences is called the
Shadow Self. The Shadow Self is created when we
refuse to accept our feelings that have been labeled
unacceptable. So often in society as we are growing
up we are told "don't do that or don't be like that
or don't say that" yet we are not told how to deal with
these negative feelings in a healthy way and our only
way of dealing with them is to deny them and shove them
down inside ourselves. This process of denial does not
cause those feelings to go away, rather, it forces them
down inside ourselves where they continue to affect
our behaviour and influence our experience.
Because we are unaware that they are there, we are powerless
to change them and it feels like our lives are being
controlled by someone or something outside ourselves.
are we to get to know our Shadow Self. Our outer
reality is a reflection of our inner reality. So if
we have experiences we don't like or if there are people
in our lives that we don't like, then it is important
to first accept that there is a part of ourselves that
is attracting this unwanted experience or person. It
is this Shadow Self part that is doing this. We need
to accept this part as part of ourselves and get to
know it before we can be able to help it heal.
Once this part is healed, you will no longer attract
the negative eperiences or they will no longer affect
you in a negative way. You will be able to live your
life in this area in a healthy, balanced way, free from
many tension or stress and filled with positive feelings
Zoe comments after the shadow self meditation:
This is a very powerful. Meeting the shadow self informed
me of many old energy patterns that can now be cleared
and also gave me big clarity over many issues: These
go back to past life encounters of being persecuted
and put to death time after time for expressing spiritual
beliefs. By healing these lives I can make way for self
worth and abundance in this life. It gave me much information
about behaviour, it doesn't like toxic friends, too
much drink, etc, and things it would like - dancing,
supportive friends, nature, walks, etc. Very clear information.
I could feel a huge shift during this meditation and
the Reiki energy was very strong.
Karuna Reiki II practitioner
four new symbols are taught with the following uses:
for Symbol 5: The energy heals the mind and links
you more strongly with the Higher Self. It brings the
Higher Self into the physical body. It therefore penetrates
very deeply and lifts out emotional pain, often bringing
an awareness of the true cause of the pain in a way
that completes the healing. Improves learning ability,
heals communication because of improved mental clarity,
increases creativty. It works well with symbol 4 allowing
the Higher Self to manifest our creativity on the physical
Symbol 6: This double Cho Ku Rei is used for physical
manifestation and for healing the human race. It is
used for grounding, you can visualize each side of the
symbol going down each leg. Place the upper part in
your hips with the spirals in your feet. This will create
a strong connection to the earth and bring your consciousness
more fully into your body. This will also help guide
your path through life in a very practical way.To manifests
goals - write your goal on a piece of paper in the form
of an affirmation. Then draw Kriya on the paper and
hold it between your hands and do symbol 6 Reiki on
it every day. At the same time, you must be working
to create your goal. It is helpful if you feel stuck
with many thoughts and have difficulty focusing on what
you need to do. It can be used to heal all the people
of Earth, helping them work together in harmony.
Symbol 7: Can help you to claim your power and to
break free from others' expectations and projections
and take back your power so you can create your life
the way you want it to be.Heals co-dependence. The symbol
helps you to break free from an unhealthy sense of responsibility
you may have with those you are close to. Heals Reality
Awareness. Empowers your Goals - it helps us act on
our plans even if others are not happy with our decisions.
It helps us connect with the joyous outcome of our goals
which empowers us to achieve them.It is truly an Earth
healing energy, and can help us connect with the consciousness
of trees, flowers, crystals, clouds etc. Try the symbol
on your house plants. It works well with symbol 3 to
Symbol 8: It brings peace and creates trust in life,
helps heal the past, it brings peace into the now and
helps free us from worry about the future.Heals insomnia.
- releases fear and creates a gentle peaceful feeling.
Also good for healing nightmares. Heals fear and panic
- helpful in treating panic attacks or chronic fatique.
This is because it helps calm fears and brings peace.
It creates such a soothing state of being that we are
able to focus more on the now, and do so in a peaceful
way. Manifest the best results - when combined with
symbol 3 it can bring harmony to the realization of
one's goals making them seem effortless to achieve.
Increases clairvoyance - Meditate with the point of
symbol 8 going into the third eye. Maintain this single
pointed focus and it will clear the brow chakra enhancing
Chanting and Toning With Karuna Reiki
experience with Karuna Reiki® has taught us that
toning or chanting during a Karuna Reiki® treatment
creates profound shifts in the vibrational frequency
of the healing energy. This idea is validated by the
Mahayana Buddhist tradition the bodhisattva Avolokitesvhara
who is said to create the "Sound that illumines the
When chanting and toing, we encourage you to do it out
loud when appropriate. However, you can chant or tone
telepathically as well. When chanting or toning in groups
of three or more, it is important not to chant or tone
for longer than 15 minutes together.
We define chanting as sounding the name of the symbol
or the sound of a series of symbols with your Karuna
Reiki® empowed voice so as to enhance the overall
qualities of Karuna Reiki® while your hands are
on or near the recipient's body. The energies will
guide themselves going to the place they are needed.
toning as sounding the name of the symbol with your
Karuna Reiki® empowered voice while your hands are
a few inches to a few feet from the client beaming Karuna

The purpose is to direct the energy directly into a
block or area in need of healing.

Zoe comments after day 3 oft Masters course:
ever, Sandra's teaching is incredibly precise and clear
and I felt fully confident every step of the way that
I had understood the information being presented and
could put it into practice.
Attunement process: Sandra made this very clear to understand
and has made some very helpful notes and prompt cards
to assist the learning process.
New master symbols (taught the Karuna way): Again, I
could feel teh power of each one as it was introduced
and presenceof many guides, angels and ascended masters
pouring their loving and wise energy into my aura. Felt
very protected and loved. In the meditation giving intention
for the course, could feel pure white loving light pouring
through my chakras and once again, the Buddha of Compassion
Chanting and Toning (taught on the 3rd day in the Masters
class): I could feel the extra power manifesting when
using symbols in this way, especially when eliminating
my mind's interference. Sandra was very clear in guding
me how to allow Spirit to direct this.
In the healing session when I was the healer lots of
stuff came up to be shifted - some of it very painful
and distrubing in nature but, as before, Ifelt completely
loved andproteced by the Karuna energy. Strangely, I
felt rocked in a double (3d) infinity symbol throughout
Can feel my intuition becoming stronger every day as
I practice this new Reiki energy and am beginning to
sense blockages in myself and others more clearly and
