Our Story

Reiki Maya is a centre dedicated to teach the most authentic and original system of Reiki – Usui Reiki.

We explore the evolution of this system as well as other powerful Reiki techniques available today such as Holy Fire Reiki. In fact we are the leading UK practitioner of Holy Fire Reiki and invite you to explore this very powerful reiki technique with us.

The Reiki Maya Founder | Miguel Chavez


“I was always struggling in my years at school. I had dyslexia and learning disabilities, so in my process of finding new ways of learning during my academic years I developed my own technique of teaching and now I apply this to Reiki.

At Reiki Maya we teach in a very unique way, combining  academic study approach with an heuristic approach based on intuition, sensations, mindfulness and feelings. The unique teaching system we offer enable our students to make the most out of Reiki.

More than a thousand students already have benefited from our courses.

At Reiki Maya Centre we teach totally from the heart and we value every single student, following and supporting their own process not just during classes but also during their practice.”

Why ‘Reiki Maya’?


Having been born and raised in Mexico, Miguel always felt a strong connection with the Maya civilization which flourished in Mesoamerica in pre-Hispanic times. The Maya had an amazing knowledge about mathematics, the cycles of time and the principle of intelligent energy that pervades the entire universe that even today we are not able to interpret or understand entirely.

In Hinduism the word “Maya” means “illusion” or “magic” and is a reflection of what Reiki does for the students who take our courses: the students awake to a higher level of consciousness allowing them to loosen and to release the connection with the material world of the senses regarded as illusory and to deepen the connection with the Oneness of Self in Truth and Love.

Inspired by his connection with the Maya world, the meaning of “Maya” in Hinduism and his passion for Reiki, Miguel felt guided to add the name “Maya” to his centre and teaching.

Miguel Chavez

Founder of Reiki Maya | Reiki Master & Teacher

Reiki Maya International School was founded by Miguel who grew up surrounded by Healers and Shamans in a spiritual temple in Mexico.

He says “This experience gave me a deep insight and understanding of the power of healing which I have developed in several techniques throughout years  of practice. After a vast and enriching exploration, I found the amazing power of Reiki  healing  which I would love to share with you.

Since my early years I was interested in the power of healing that helps overcome illness and suffering in human nature. My story began before I was born as my parents tried for many years to have children but failed. Having tried different forms of medical treatments without success, my parents visited a spiritual healers temple and following this visit my mother became pregnant. In gratitude with the healers we continued to visit the temple for the next 11 years where I learned from, experienced the spirituality and actively participated in rituals with the  healers.

I left Mexico when I was 25 and started a spiritual journey around the world. I attended many healing courses and workshops such as Angels Healing, Activation of DNA and Pineal Gland, Shamanic Rituals, Analytic Psychology, Holistic Massage, Mindfulness, Ayurveda, Transendental Meditation, Yoga, Non-Duality etc.

“In my journey I came across Reiki which taught me that everything I was searching for was already here!”

Reiki helped me to look at life in a more harmonious way, to see peace were I used to see fear and to find harmony within myself. I then became a Reiki practitioner in 2006 and a Reiki Master in 2010 when I began to teach and share this amazing experience”.

Reiki Lineage

 

Reiki lineage refers to the line of Reiki Masters that leads to the student. For traditional Reiki the line begins with Mikao Usui.

It continues with one of his Reiki Masters, and then to one of theirs and so it continues.

For a healing system to be called Reiki and be recognized as such, the lineage must trace back to Mikao Usui.

 

  • Miguel’s linage is very close to Dr. Mikao Usui
  • There are just five teachers before him.
  • This means that the reiki energy Miguel Chavez channels and teaches is very close to the original teachings and energy of Dr. Mikao Usui – the founder of Reiki.
