About Aura


AURA was formed in order to promote greater knowledge, understanding and use of Reiki in the wider community, and in doing so help Heal the World. Our purposes and directions are, for the benefit of the members and wider community, to encourage worldwide, whole person growth, healing and well-being through Reiki by:

  • Honouring the Usui Reiki tradition whilst actively fostering and advancing Reiki to ensure respect for its practise and teaching
  • Provide members opportunities, encouragement and proven techniques for healing, personal development and growth, and a forum for information, support and friendship
  • Asserting and maintaining professional standards of education and practice for Usui Reiki and granting professional certification to members who meet these standards
  • Being recognised throughout the wider community as a leading professional Reiki Association; a self-regulated body with a unified voice
  • Building effective relationships with other organisations and policy makers to promote understanding, credibility and acceptance of Reiki.

This means that we undertake to heal the world with Reiki in every way; emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. We also seek to offer guidance and support to other Reiki people; a forum for interested parties to place their views and a respected body for those who practice Reiki professionally. We do this by offering support and guidance to members in utilising their Reiki gift and generally in life skills. Having regular events to bring members together in friendship is one of our commitments to members.

AURA recognises Holy Fire Reiki as a new form of Usui Reiki currently taught by William Lee Rand and his students and accepts members who have been attuned at all levels.

Karuna Reiki® Chapter

AURA acknowledges Karuna Reiki® as a trademarked system of energy healing that has evolved from Usui Reiki and is currently taught by William Lee Rand and his licensed teachers and independent Karuna Reiki® Masters, and recognises members who have been attuned at practitioner and master levels.
