Mari Hall

Mari Hall is a Reiki Teacher, Coach, Mentor, and Motivational Speaker. Her passion is for people to connect to their inner peace and, through creative resolution, take this out into the world.

Mari began her Reiki journey in 1980 when she was searching for a way to help with a debilitating health issue. She became a Reiki Master in 1983. She was the first Usui Reiki Master to bring Reiki to the UK, and the first to teach Reiki in the Ukraine, Norway and Czechoslovakia. Mari has taught Reiki to more than 55,000 people worldwide. She is a highly respected figure in the wider Reiki community.

As the founding director of the International Association of Reiki (est.1989), Mari has greatly influenced both the development of Reiki as a professional practice and the standards for its teaching. This was clearly seen in her work with the International Board of Complementary Medicine for the standardization of teaching and the professional practice of Reiki within the European Union. The late President Vaclav Havel of the Czech Republic recognized this work when Mari was nominated for the prestigious Heart of the Country award, which is the Czech equivalent of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Mari also teaches Jikiden Reiki (direct teaching). She found Jikiden Reiki in Bogota, Columbia in 2007 when she went there to present techniques that she developed using Reiki to help with brain and motor neurological problems and muscle memory. She began studying Jikiden Reiki with Tadao Yamaguchi and Arjava Petter in Bogota that year and was Arjava’s US coordinator for his Jikiden classes in the United States for 7 years. She is a Shihan (Teacher).

She is the bestselling author of many books about Reiki. You can find them on Amazon. Her books include Practical Reiki: A Step by Step Guide, Reiki for the Soul, Reiki: Using Healing Energy for Peace, Joy, and Vitality, Reiki for Common Ailments and Reiki for the Soul: The Eleventh Door.

You can reach her at her website and at her email She is happy to answer your questions about Reiki.

Language: Featured Words in ContextTree of life with heart on trunk

Our language will be of wonder, enlightened action, action that come from the wisdom of our Essence. It is our intuitive senses interacting as inspired expression. We are in our sense of expansive heart and love. Where the boundaries of hurt and pain we each hold in our heart lose their rigidness and shift in a softened feeling of Wholeness.

Roots: Associated WorksTree roots

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was a French idealist philosopher and Jesuit priest and Mari offers us two of his quotes in particular:

“You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.”
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
“The most satisfying thing in life is to have been able to give a large part of one's self to others.”
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
Edith Wharton
“Sometimes I feel like a lonely tree arms outstretched to the light of the sky. I forget we are a forest connected together at the roots.”
Dr. K. Bradford Brown
For more information on Reiki, Mari has written some wonderful books. See them listed above.
