Mayastar Academy was founded in 2004 to provide distance energy healing and spiritual development courses. All attunements are individually prepared by Maya using the Orb of Life/Chi-Ball method which allows students to receive their attunements at their own rate. You can read about how attunements work here.


When you order from Mayastar, your course materials are sent to you by email within 12 hours (usually within minutes!). And attunements are sent within 3 days. An Certificate of Achievement is issued when your attunements are set up. You have the option to upgrade to a Diploma Certificate through payment of the administration fee of £20 & the submission of a 300-word essay about your chosen modality, and 3 case studies to demonstrate your experience and understanding. You can read about how Mayastar courses work here.


Maya's "Book of Inspiration" is supplied to all students as part of the study materials for every Mayastar course. This collection of essays includes detailed guidance on personal spiritual practice, energy anatomy, prayer, meditation, quantum healing, the structure & hierarchy of the spiritual dimension, the Age of Aquarius, light-beings & guides, angels, the Harmonic Convergence & much, much more!

If you have no experience with energy healing or spiritual practice, I recommend you start your journey with Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki. Usui Reiki is the optimal foundation for all energy healing work! Its structured techniques support beginners and provide a framework to build upon in the future. Options that combine extremely well with Usui Reiki include: Ethereal Crystals Healing, Violet Flame Attunement, Archangelic Flames, Crystal Rose, Rainbow Sequence Healing and Kundalini Reiki. You can read about these options here. As an illustration, a personalised package that included all 7 of the courses recommended above, would be £270 instead of £360 (saving £90 on the individual fees). To take a personalised package of these courses or your own selection, please email me.

About Attunements

How Mayastar Courses Work



Ascension Reiki 1-10

Ascension Reiki has been brought to us through the extensive spiritual healing work of Jayson Suttkus.  The detailed eBooks that accompany this course include the fruits of his journey through the study of the Ascended Masters, Usui Reiki and ancient important texts such as The Aquarian Gospel, The Bhagavad Gita, The Bible, The Essene Gospels, The Teachings of the Compassionate Buddha, The Upanishads, The Srimad Bhagavatam, The Book of Tao, The Yoga Sutras, and The Vedas.


Ascension Reiki completely encompasses Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki and attunements/re-attunement to the degrees of Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki are included in the attunements of Ascension Reiki. The subsequent attunements build upon the Usui Reiki foundation and creates a comprehensive system that's suitable for self healing, healing others and spiritual development work.  


Ten attunements. Very extensive course manuals (428 pages in total) plus “The Book of Inspiration: Vibrational Medicine, Spirituality & Lightwork” Companion Guides Compendium by Rev. Anna May. No prerequisites.


Gold Star Christ Activation

This system activates your DNA on an energetic level to realise greater spiritual freedom and power and to manifest gifts associated with divine consciousness.


This series of activations also unlocks the frequency keys to “inner doors” facilitating access to the higher self and our spiritual reality.


4 attunements. Course manual and attunement procedure document (15 pages in total) plus “The Book of Inspiration: Vibrational Medicine, Spirituality & Lightwork” Companion Guides Compendium by Rev. Anna May. Prerequisite: Usui Reiki Master or Seichim Master or Ascension Reiki Master.

Medicine Buddha Reiki
The Medicine Buddha is the Buddha of healing. Historically, it is believed helpful to meditate on his image and to chant his mantra with the desire to alleviate suffering and attain enlightenment. It is thought that Dr. Mikao Usui, the originator of Reiki in its modern form, may have meditated on the Healing Buddha as part of his effort to rediscover the original healing practices of the Buddha.


The Medicine Buddha is an enlightened being who has unbiased compassion for all living beings. He protects from physical and mental illnesses and other dangers and obstacles, and helps to eradicate the three poisons (attachment, hatred, and ignorance) which are the source of disease.


The advanced techniques of Medicine Buddha Reiki include mantras, visualisation and the activation of symbols to augment and direct energy. You need to be an Usui Reiki Master to take this course.


1 attunement. 36 page course manuals plus “The Book of Inspiration: Vibrational Medicine, Spirituality & Lightwork” Companion Guides Compendium by Rev. Anna May. Usui Reiki Master is a prerequisite.


Seven Facet Seichim

Seichim is an energy healing system that Reiki Masters can learn in order to progress their healing journey. Seichim brings in Egyptian energies and combines them with elements of the Japanese Reiki system in a cohesive and comprehensive programme.

The course includes: the history of Seichim, Infinity Meditation, symbols, hand placements, aura scanning, chi balls, grounding, empowering objects, self-healing, healing others, distance healing, clearing blocks, spiritual development, enlightenment and mastery.

7 attunements. 43 page course manual plus “The Book of Inspiration: Vibrational Medicine, Spirituality & Lightwork” Companion Guides Compendium by Rev. Anna May. Prerequisite: Usui Reiki Master or Ascension Reiki Master or Seichim Master.


Tibetan Soul Star Reiki

From the ancient Reiki mystery school of Tibet comes a series of master symbols which were passed down to initiates and healers on the journey to enlightenment. They allowed connection to high-vibrational energetic frequencies that facilitate advanced spiritual healing.


These attunements are reserved for existing Reiki Masters who want to clear and activate the higher chakras in order to connect with the divine self. If you are not already an Usui Reiki Master and wish to take this course, you can purchase Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki from


The course includes powerful meditations, healing techniques, ceremonies, breathing exercises, tantric chakra activation, mudras, teachings of the Medicine Buddha, purification rituals and detailed guidance for spiritual ascension.


3 attunements. 87 page course manual plus “The Book of Inspiration: Vibrational Medicine, Spirituality & Lightwork” Companion Guides Compendium by Rev. Anna May. Reiki Master is a prerequisite.


Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master

This option is for the complete Usui Reiki course to Master/Teacher level.


The first level teaches you the hand-positions used to give a full Reiki Treatment for hands-on self-healing and healing others. You also learn techniques for healing and meditation.


In the second level, you learn 3 symbols that allow you to increase the flow of Reiki and send it distantly. The symbols can also be used to direct Reiki for mental and emotional healing. The flow of energy at this level is considered to be 4 times as potent as at level 1.


The final level confers the Master Symbol and empowers you to attune others to Usui Reiki. This level is considered to be 10 times as potent as level 1. The Reiki Kanjis and Reiju healing techniques are also taught; and a copy of Dr Hayashi's treatment methods are provided.


NOTE: If you have taken Reiki to level 1 or 2 in the past, you will need to complete all 3 attunements with Mayastar to be certified as a Reiki Master. This is because there are variations in different lineages and because the level 1 attunement includes elements that are activated in subsequent attunements.



3 attunements. 4 detailed course manuals by Rev. Anna May (Maya) plus 1 info PDF featuring all the hand positions for treating others and self-healing plus “The Book of Inspiration: Vibrational Medicine, Spirituality & Lightwork” Companion Guides Compendium by Rev. Anna May. No prerequisites.

“There is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills

countless ideas and splendid plans: the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that never otherwise would have occurred . . .

Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.

Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
