Tanmaya has practised Reiki since 1983, and was fortunate to have been trained by one of the few Reiki Masters initiated by Hawayo Takata – who introduced Reiki to the Western World from its beginnings in Japan.
... was born in November 1953 in the village of Höxter in the Weserbergland, Germany. She trained to be a teacher of primary and secondary school children. From 1978 she taught in Bremen in North Germany.
Starting her journey with Reiki while travelling in the USA, she gave herself a Reiki treatment daily for three months and says about this time…
"…when I was treating myself I went into such deep and strong inner spaces that I knew it was what I had been looking for – not just in terms of healing on the physical level, but emotionally and spiritually.” (REIKI - Healing and Harmony Through the Hands - by Tanmaya, published 1998).
Tanmaya’s developing interest in Reiki came out of a passion for her own personal growth and spiritual development, and she has travelled the world exploring spirituality and meditation within other cultures.
She travelled to the USA and regularly to India between 1987 until 1997.
“I have been fortunate in meeting Osho, my spiritual master in 1983 in Oregon (USA). His presence, teachings and meditations helped me a lot to come to know myself better and learn about meditation. This has opened a new positive view on life itself. “ (Tanmaya)
In 1986 Tanmaya started her work as a therapist and healer in Freiburg (South Germany). She trained in a variety of therapeutic and holistic healing methods including Psychic Massage and Energy Work, Colour Therapy, Flower Remedies and Counselling. In 1992 she received her Reiki Master Teacher degree in India.
Tanmaya founded the School of Usui Reiki in England in 1995. The School has provided a series of certified Reiki Trainings in the traditional Usui Method.
Tanmaya is especially well known in Great Britain and Germany and conducts trainings there, as well as other countries in Europe.
