Reiki Grandmaster Keidra Hoskins, 8th dan

For anyone who reads this testimonial, I know this message was meant for you. Your life can change almost overnight and you deserve to have that change you want. 

For me, the change actually occurred over three nights.  🙂 I had just enrolled in their Reiki program.  When I received my attunement from Lana and David, it was a life-altering experience.  I can’t help but laugh when I think about it, because I have studied with Reiki “Masters” before and have received numerous attunements in the past … so I figured I knew what to expect. WRONG! LOL.

For three days straight: my skin was tight, I thought I was going through Menopause (15 years early) with severe hot flashes, and I felt like “I” was growing too big for my body! (think Alice in Wonderland, when she grows too big for the White Rabbit’s house!)

Their attunement knocked me on my butt and opened my eyes to the true REIKI experience. It is a way of being comprised of making the choice to commit to purging what no longer serves you and allowing REIKI to not only fill you up, but also emanate from your being … all with the support of the Halau. You are accepted as you are, and Grand Masters Lana and David lovingly mentor you to get you where you wanna be.  You can call whenever you need them.  You are family.

Some of you may wonder what kind of experience this school will provide you, especially with my attunement experience which could be described as “crazy” at best and “traumatic” at its worst.  But, it was neither of these things.  It was what was needed for me to embark on my journey.  The beauty of this School is that you get what you need for your path.

No one’s journey is the same.  If REIKI isn’t for you, there are so many other modalities you can experience here at The Halau.  When you are ready to pursue your individual path towards self-discovery, self-mastery, self-healing, or whatever it is  you are looking for at this point in your life, everything you need can be found at this school under the tutelage of Grand Masters Lana and David.  They are grounded, accessible, compassionate and, more importantly, they are amazing teachers and healers committed to creating and holding a safe and loving space for YOU to HEAL Yourself. 

I can say wholeheartedly that once you learn how to heal yourself, magic and miracles literally can and do happen rapidly, if you allow it. You develop and relax in your own personal power and discover a deep wellspring of personal resolve. But, you have to do the work.

The work can be hard, but you don’t have to do it alone.  It is my intention that all who read these words will also feel inspired and excited about finally finding a place that resonates with the part of you that has been looking for answers … and then, you happen to stumble upon this website.  The universe has responded to your request.  Take the hint!  Sending you much love and a little zap of inspired action.

I have been reflecting deeply over the past few months, and one of those thought processes includes my own feelings of the Halau. Some may wonder exactly what holds my heart here, so I want to reveal the innermost reflections that have arisen during my recent exploration of myself.

One word that comes to mind is acceptance. You see, here in the Halau, I have grown in acceptance of my own path and others. As a Grandmaster here, it has become significant that acknowledging each member’s individual journey and path leads to and from here – this heart-centered place of learning and growth. Grandmasters Victoria Lanakila Generao and David Crawford have brought together a synergy that encompasses the individual’s journey along with solid teachings that dive deep into the core of Reiki as it was meant to be taught and practiced. Additionally, each student/teacher brings his/her own path and journey’s experiences creating a cosmic and universal connection to the ancestral originations.

I would like to add, as well, that one of the highlights of the Halau is the encouragement to grow as a spiritual being. That is, first and foremost, the key value here, and one that I hold dearest to my heart.

Peace and Love to All,

Grandmaster Renee Harper-Vacek

I would like to write some lines about my experience with “The Halau” school, with Victoria and David as they go beyond the simple Teacher / Student relationship.

Both have demonstrated knowledge and training that goes beyond the simple study: the patience they have shown in all these years with me, respecting my times, understanding my circumstancies and limitations (Spanish is my mother tongue) and the effort to make me progress evidence how important and fundamental are these teachings for them.

Both have demonstrated and continue to demonstrate knowledge and wisdom far superior to what can be commonly obtained. There is no arguments, questions or curiosity that they have not responded with serenity and mainly fundamental to their reasonings or explanations.

In my humble opinion, these are the qualities that makes the difference between a simple teacher and a Master …
And, in my case, two very special Friends.

From the Washington Halau … Meet 18th dan Reiki Grandmaster and Melchizedek High Priest David Crawford

Good morning, afternoon and evening to everyone. Here in our school, we offer a variety of systems of learning and understanding based around our ultimate desire to heal the ills that have befallen so many of us in this life, both physically and spiritually. We teach the art of energy healing based on the instruction given to us by Mikao Usui and his Usui Teate system whose aim is to provide a method for students to achieve connection with the Universal Life Force energy that would help them in their self-development. What sets Usui’s teachings apart from other hands-on healing methods is his use of reiju or attunement to remind students of their spiritual connection.

We also promulgate connection to our Divine State to achieve an awareness of the true nature of mankind by means of Initiation into the Mysteries including Melchizedek or Christ Consciousness which is also described in many genres as Enlightenment. We offer instruction in diet and other spiritual practices that can assist in leading our students from the mundane, slave like adherence laid upon us by institutions and forces that do not have our best interests at heart.

We teach a heart based consciousness and stress a Service to Others awareness designed to improve the State of Being of Humanity as a whole.

We offer instruction in Practical Magic covering Nature based paradigms, shamanism, ceremonial magic, astral travel and other genres of higher dimensional awareness. Additionally we can assist each individual to deal with the influx of energy we are collectively experiencing as this Earth transitions into a Higher State of Consciousness to enable them to experience the peace, joy and tranquility that these times of Ascension place before us.

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions of myself or my partner and founder of our school, Victoria Lanakila Generao we are more than willing to help in any way we can.

Hi everybody,

I’d like to take a second to join the crowd and shortly share my experience with the Hālau. This is not your average school. Anyone can go, take a reiki weekend class and get a certificate.  A certificate won’t make you a master. Knowledge will. If that’s what you are after, this is the place to be.

I came here to learn and I can assure everyone that the love, knowledge and sense of family you will receive here from Grandmasters Victoria Lanakila Generao and David Crawford will blow you away.

Their commitment to every student comes from the heart. They have the knowledge and experience to teach you more then most of you probably even thought was possible.

If you need help to become a healer, and/or to expand your horizons in the spiritual department, in my opinion, you will not find a better place then the Hālau.

My experience thus far has been absolutely amazing! Lana and David take you in like family and literally have your back! They are always there for you! I love their comprehensive and authentic teaching style. They are generous teachers with hearts of gold, giving more than expected, and truly putting their all into their teaching. I’m so happy I found my “home” with the Halau! And am eternally grateful to have found Lana and David! ❤️💖🙏

I have been a student of Lana’s since 2005.  She is very powerful in all that she does.  She is an amazing healer and very well attuned to all forms of energy.  She is also very kind and compassionate.  All of the services she provides are 100% legit!  No games, no price gouging, no joke.
