Our Teachers


Victorine Hinger

Founder, Reiki Master

Originally from Luxembourg, Reiki has taken me around the world since I received my First Degree Reiki in 1994. My Second Degree was the next year in New York City. From there, my one year Reiki Master Training started in Kapaa, Kauai, Hawaii. The birth town of Mrs. Hyawo Takata, Kapaa is where my Reiki Master lived. Shortly after I starting my training, I started travelling and learning to become a Reiki Master.

I organized classes and assisted my teacher in Kauai, England, Luxembourg and Holland. We travelled to Greece and Turkey learning many lessons. I gave Reiki treatments, Reiki lectures and Reiki Circles on different Islands in the Caribbean, Nepal, Philippines, Australia, China and Thailand.I finished my Master Training in 1998 in Kauai, Hawaii when I became a Reiki Master.

I am a Member of the Reiki Alliance. The Reiki Alliance is an international community of Reiki Masters dedicated to the practice of Usui Shiki Ryoho, the Usui System of Natural Healing. We acknowledge Phyllis Lei Furumoto as our Fourth Grand-Master.

I opened my first Reiki Healing Center in 2000 in Santa Barbara, CA

Mark Kalita

Founder, Second Degree Reiki, Reiki Master in Training

Throughout my life, I have been on a Spiritual journey. Religion and Spirituality held a special curiosity that fueled a hobby of investigation into world religions and texts. By the time I had my first Degree Reiki Initiation in 2001, I was ready to change from that material being into that Spiritual being I had always been. Change is never easy.

Since that first Reiki Initiation, I have written a number of books, taught classes and try to keep up with my websites. I kept writing and teaching, trying to make a real change in this world towards the Light. Throughout the past couple of decades, I have kept Reiki within my life and meditations.

In the past couple of years, I have searched for a Reiki Master that I could work with to become a Reiki Master myself. Since my First Degree Initiation in this new lineage, I have made Reiki a priority in my life. I am now a Reiki Master in Training. I have joined with my Reiki Master to open the International Center of Light, Inc. with which we have founded the Church of Reiki. It is with these that I hope to show gratitude for every living thing long after my current incarnation ends. Peace, Love and Reiki for evermore.
