About Jenny Newman

Jenny has practiced Reiki for 20 years and became a Teacher 16 years ago. She is professionally trained and a graduate of The International House of Reiki, whose aims and vision are to support and promote the ancient Japanese practices and esoteric teachings.

Jenny says:
“Reiki is within us all, regardless if we have been ‘attuned’ into the system, which is a very western ideology. Reiki has certainly been part of my life since the day I was born. I wasn’t consciously aware of it, I just felt happy being in the fields and woods and feeling the connection to all things. I have always loved and been part of the natural world, even from a very young age. Walking and playing in the countryside and discovering animals and insects was, and is, my passion. Reiki has developed this passion and through research into the system of Reiki and its roots. I have discovered that there is no end to learning and going deeper into this ancient Practice”.

I continue to study every year with my teacher Frans Stiene of the International House of Reiki and author of many Reiki books. Frans travels all over the world teaching the ancient practices of Reiki.

I offer support at all times, and the student can come and refresh their course as many times as necessary to gain confidence and understanding in their daily practice, this support is free for a year.”

Jenny holds Reiki sharing sessions every month/six weeks, for students to spend some time together discussing their experiences. On these days she practices meditation and mindfulness and, of course, Reiki.

My trip to Sarajevo

My reiki journey opened up areas that I would never have thought possible, going out of my comfort Zone was not an option, I did however! I joined a charity and volunteered to go to Sarajevo, Bosnia giving Reiki treatments to victims of war, who had been raped, tortured, held in concentration camps and those suffering severe injuries from the constant bombardment of shells surrounding the city.

This was a truly humbling experience and one which I will never forget. The people were stoic and proud, they had nothing, their homes had been destroyed, their livelihood gone, and most of all the pain of not knowing where their missing loved ones were, and witnessing their sons and husbands shot in front of them.

I went back to the scarred and hurt city three times – the compulsion to stay was very strong.

With time the Bosnian people will recover, but their memories will live on the pain of this mindless war that took so many lives is palpable.
