Ambassadors, Teachers, and Practitioners of the Rayid Model ®

The Rayid Model® of Iris, Birth Order, and Family Tree Dynamics is the legal and creative property of its founder, Denny Johnson. This includes the name “Rayid” (a registered trademark) and all related Rayid information, products, programs, logos, and materials.  Denny Johnson is the founder of Rayid International, Unitree Foundation, and Global Gratitude, and maintains all legal and creative rights associated with each.


Unitree Foundation is the only valid credentialing body worldwide for Rayid teachers and Rayid practitioners.  The same is true for teachers and practitioners of Global Gratitude.  The purchase of products and materials associated with Rayid is provided through Rayid International.

There was a time when Rayid teachers, practitioners, and “masters” were certified through Rayid International.  Rayid certification was discontinued years ago and is no longer valid.

There was also a time when locations outside of the United States (ie, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands, etc.) were recognized by Denny Johnson as offering affiliated Rayid programs.  Those associations ended years ago and no longer exist.  “Rayid” is copyright and trademark protected.  Any other website using the word “Rayid” in its name, in any form, is in violation of the law.

Any Rayid or Rayid-related programs, products, materials, credentialing, or websites – other than those offered by, or approved by, Unitree Foundation and Rayid International in the United States – are invalid representations of Rayid®.

Levels of Credentialing

Currently, there are 3 levels of credentials (formal recognition) offered through Unitree Foundation:

  1. Rayid Ambassador (Amb.)
  2. Rayid Teacher (RT)
  3. Rayid Practitioner (RP)

Rayid Ambassadors serve on the Unitree Foundation Board of Directors and have been personally selected by Denny Johnson.  They are the highest-level representatives of Rayid and are the most current, accurate, and skilled teachers and practitioners of the Rayid Model.  They work in close association with Denny Johnson and serve as mentors and guides for Rayid Teachers and Rayid Practitioners, as well as students of Rayid.

Rayid Teachers and Practitioners

Becoming or being a Rayid Practitioner or Rayid Teacher requires endorsement/approval by the Board of Directors of Unitree Foundation. The knowledge and skill of Rayid teachers and practitioners is regularly reassessed.  The Board of Directors maintains the only accurate list of Rayid Teachers and Rayid Practitioners worldwide.

Rayid Teachers: Becoming a Rayid Teacher requires invitation and endorsement by Unitree Foundation’s Board of Directors.  Invitation is based on years of practice, currency of knowledge, expertise, and teaching skill.  All Rayid Teachers are highly skilled Rayid Practitioners.
