In the direct lineage of Hawayo Takata who brought Reiki to the United States from Japan. Sarah Chapman trained with Nana Deleplanque (at “The NYC Reiki Institute”) who trained with John Harvey Gray, from 1989 to 1997 as a student and assistant.
J. H Gray was one of Mrs Takata earliest master. With Nana, Sarah learned that Reiki was much more than a healing technique but provided a total transformation. Sarah strongly believes that Reiki should be used with integrity and commitment to reflect the lineage of Dr Mikao Usui, Hayashi and Takata.
