Frank Coppieters
Frank's story is a lovely voice from the past when it seemed that we knew everyone and we were community. Now the Reiki community is more expressed as a virtual one. Frank's legacy to his students is his value of community and his love for the members of this community. His integration of Reiki practice into his life, his growing into his shamanistic practice, and his personal partnership come through him as his expression of mastery. Teaching in both the Portland Oregon area and in Belgiu... More

Robert Fueston
Robert's story starts out with all the elements of "coincidence that are really daily miracles." A series of these coupled with his desire to find out how Hawayo Takata taught Reiki set Robert on a path of mastery. His willingness to seek the "answer" gave him the opportunity to meet the elders of the Reiki community and to learn the essential lessons of Reiki. His story is the story of the relationship between essence and form……and the rewards of consistency and diligence. More

Jojan is a continued presence on the show. As listeners you can follow his path through researching the mystic experiences of fellow masters and now a paper on "three eras of Reiki practice;" the founding era beginning with Mikao Usui, the era of Reiki coming to Hawaii and then the mainland of the USA, and the present era of globalization. Where do these research papers take us as students? What is their value? Need we change our practice because of these? The outcome of the study may g... More

Brigitte's story is a wonderful example of how deeply Reiki can touch the essence of being and change a life.

From then on, Brigitte's journey is one of courage, dedication, and acting from her knowing of what Reiki is for her.

Vanesa came to Reiki as she was searching for something different in her life. Her Reiki story, as with many of us, tells of a change of life at a difficult moment. At the same time, there was an echo in the monetary health of Argentina and she weathered both storms through her dedication and practice of Reiki. A story of trust and listening, Vanesa has extended her experience and commitment to her students. Interpretation by Upasana Grugan. More

Food …. Glorious Food! The energy of our bodies receives nourishment from food. If our food is filled with energy, if our food matches what our bodies are able to digest, then we will build our foundation of health. Through her finding out that her body was not able to digest wheat which contains gluten, Claudia found a path to Health, Happiness, and Long Life… which is the phrase that Hawayo Takata used when talking about Reiki to students. The moment of vulnerability that our bodies bri... More

A miracle has happened! Through Facebook I met Ciro Perrino and was instantly intrigued by his being a composer and being a Reiki Master. Ciro's insights and connection to Music and Reiki touched me deeply. … Like a new instrument I had not heard playing Reiki! There are few words right now to describe the interview. Perhaps this is an experience of what he has within…a miracle of bringing into hearing something that exists but is not heard until he becomes the channel. At the end of the inte... More

Phyllis shares her thoughts about the "end of the world" and the gifts that Reiki brings to us in the practice and in the experience of practicing. The second half of the program is the New Year's Meditation. The music is from Deuter's Koyasan CD. The studies of DNA brings to us clearly that we are one, not only in essence but in the very being of our human bodies. The tension between form and essence is a creative force that can bring us to a new consciousness. More

Jason heard about Reiki while studying with Louise Hay in Southern California in 1985. He felt that this was for him and pursued his Path which lead him to Brazil and Uruguay.

Courageous, willing to follow his path, and a commitment to being in the energy of Reiki, Jason inspir... More

This week the interviewer becomes the interviewee! Krishna Kloers wanted to have a way for me to be present at the Gersfeld Reiki Festival. As a result she interviewed me. This was a great experience and I expect to have more offerings where I can be present without physically being present. This question always comes up……when is a hug the most valuable thing? (The interview has minor sound disturbances that are not able to be eliminated and the voices are clear.) More

They all have chosen to be initiated and have practiced since childhood. Her practice as a master has followed this theme and her place within her family is as the healer/mother. More
