About Wendy Vaughan: Wiltshire Reiki Training Courses

reiki courses wiltshire trowbridgeI began my journey with Reiki over 20 years ago, firstly receiving treatments, then going on to develop an interest in training myself.

My first treatment happened by chance, I saw an advert for Reiki at my local gym and thought I’d give it a try, I’d not heard of it before, but it sounded great.  It turned out to be the first of many.  Various Reiki practitioners suggested to me that I ought to learn Reiki, and eventually the timing was right and I booked myself onto a local Reiki I course.

My first attempt a learning Reiki was however very disappointing.  I came away from my Reiki I course confused and unsure what exactly I was supposed to do or how I was to proceed.  I continued to have reiki treatments occasionally, but I hadn’t truly begun my journey.
I was fortunate enough a few years later to come across a Reiki Master Teacher though Reiki Evolution, and I re-started my training by repeating Reiki I or Shoden. And what a difference!   Everything was clear, easy to understand and above all made sense.  The approach was free from ‘clutter’ and other peoples’ interpretations and seemed to be just about the Reiki itself.

I was always a very driven and ambitious person, and was clear in my mind from the start that I would complete Reiki I, II and III.  Everyone talked about “when the time is right”, but I was sure I would just “get on with it”.  Having completed Reiki I and II, I didn’t make immediate plans for Reiki III.  Far more time passed that I probably expected would, however, one day I just felt ready, picked up the phone and booked my place with the same Master Teacher as had taken me though Reiki I and II.  It turn out that it was the last place on his last ever course, and I am so thankful that something compelled me to book that day!

My Reiki Master Teacher training was truly a catalyst for changing my life. It was around this time that I decided to give up my corporate career and pursue a very different life.  I wanted to work with horses, but wasn’t sure how much of a business I could develop just with reiki.  I therefore went on to train and an animal/equine physiotherapist, McTimoney-Corley Spinal Therapist and a whole raft of other things.  Now, I can honestly say, as much of my work is about Reiki than anything else, it really has gone full circle, and has come back to Reiki.

Now that I teach others, I found that using the same approach that helped me so much was the obvious choice.  That is why I am proud to be part of the Reiki Evolutions Team of Practitioners.  It is reassuring for me to know that my teaching is grounded in such a sensible, established lineage.
