Usui Shiki Ryoho – A Wild Woman Walking the Spiritual Path


Welcome to my journey as a Reiki Master Teacher of Usui Shiki Ryoho – the Usui System of Natural Healing

I consider myself a wild woman because of my struggles with mental health and addiction, have lived a life beyond expected conformities and truly feel most comfortable in nature…wild with those animals I feel most at home with.

Reiki Lineage

My Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage includes Master TeachersErica Blackburn from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and Dr. V.P. Rajasekharan from Trivandrum, Kerala, India.

Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher, Erica Blackburn:

I first attained Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Level I, II, & III3A with Erica Blackburn in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Erica is a Certified Yoga Teacher, Yoga Life Coach, and Reiki Teacher/Master. She is a fully Certified BodyTalk Practitioner and is registered with the International BodyTalk Association. Erica completes on-going continued education in BodyTalk and other forms of advanced yoga, energy medicine and spiritual development. She is passionate about elevating consciousness and well-being for individuals one-on-one and in group settings. Erica leads speaking events and workshops on how to incorporate more wellness into your daily life. This includes teaching Reiki Attunements (Level 1, 2 and 3 a & b). Erica’s formal education is in business. She received her BBA from St. FX and her MBA from Saint Mary’s.

Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher, Dr. V.P. Rajasekharan:

I repeated Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Level IIIA and attained Level IIIB with Dr. V.P. Rajasekharan during a one week stay at Carnoustie Ayurvedic & Wellness Resort in Mararikkulam North, Kerala, India.

Soon after this, I returned to the same area of India and reunited with Dr. V.P. Rajasekharan, repeating Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Levels I, II, IIIA & IIIB with him.

Knowing that re-attunement is not necessary, I did so anyway with this acharya, this Reiki Master Teacher who has over seventy years of experience with yogic wisdom and elevating consciousness. Because of this, I was able to deepen my own understanding of Reiki, its symbols and attunement processes. 

About Dr. V.P. Rajasekharan from his book “Healing at Carnoustie – Be Your Own Healer.”

“Dr. V.P. Rajasekharan is the resident yoga professor, Pranic Healer and Reiki Master Teacher at Carnoustie Ayurveda & Wellness Resort, located in Mararikkulam North, Kerala, India. He has his PhD in yoga and MD in Alternative Medicine. He also has masterships in as many as ten energy healing disciplines including Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki and Pranic Healing. He is an international trainer of Stress Management through Yoga at corporate level. He served as Head of the Yoga Centre under Central Government in Kerala for twenty years. Dr. Rajasekharan was born into a family of Sanskrit scholars and has had a spiritual inclination since his teenage years that found fruition in choosing yoga as his career. He is a direct disciple of Swami Satyananda Saraswati, founder of Bihar School of Yoga. Therefore, Dr. Rajasekharan yoga teachings are of the Bihar School of Yoga or Satyananda Yoga tradition.”

Reiki Resource

At this time, I am transitioning from living overseas, where I had a small Reiki practice, to settling back home in Canada. I am developing and working towards opening a Reiki practice here.

This blog site is a work in progress as I slowly develop this as a resource for clients and when I offer workshops.

With light, love and joy,

Stephanie, 💛
