Reiki Teacher, Yogini, Blissologist, Podcaster, Founder of the Reiki Healing Society
Carrie Varela is the founder of the Reiki Healing Society. In her 15 years as a Reiki practitioner, she has had the wonderful privilege of studying many diverse types of Reiki, including Tibetan/Usui Reiki, Holy Fire Reiki, Jikiden Reiki, and Usui Reiki Ryoho. She has provided thousands of Reiki treatments and guided over 75 Reiki courses, leading hundreds through the process of learning Reiki.
Carrie works with Reiki enthusiasts, students, and practitioners to help them gain confidence in their ability to use Reiki in their own healing process and to transmit it to others. She possesses the gift to make spiritual concepts practical and engaging, even for those who are longing to connect to their spirit but often get trapped in their logical minds.
In her Reiki practice, Carrie has had the privilege to work with clients on diverse issues, including emotional pain, physical pain, traumatic life events, and deep healing crises like cancer. She has recently discovered her home within Reiki, the Usui Reiki Ryoho, and she is honored to teach Reiki from this lineage. Carrie is also an E-500hr yoga instructor, co-founder & co-producer of Reiki Women Podcasts, a Blissologist, mom, mystic & modern-day healer.
The Reiki Healing Society represents an invitation to connect present-day Reiki practitioners with each other and to inspire them to collaborate with one another to expand their reach and impact. In essence, it’s about building a community where they can support each other on their path to becoming the best Reiki practitioners they can be. It is a space within Reiki to learn how to do less harm, undo racism, and connect to the roots of Reiki for greater authenticity & embodiment.
