At the end of my tour of South America, I was privileged to speak to a group of about 100 students and masters in Santiago Chile. The topic question was "What is the future of Reiki?" Combining many of my main themes, I was able to communicate moving from being self referenced to including the world community, moving from being a helper and a fixer to being of service, and moving into the next stage of development for this practice we call Reiki. I feel I am standing on the brink of the un... More

Sustainable Choices is becoming a phrase that is like the "red thread" in the German language….this means that this phrase runs through everything I do and think these days. I just realized several hours ago that I was thinking of this concept many years ago when I wrote a little letter in the Blue Book published by the Reiki Alliance. At the end of the letter is a visual……"Image that you are standing in a corner facing the wall. It seems that you have few choices and no where to go. Now ... More

Wanja is from Sweden originally and still has the lilt in her voice and the twinkle in her eye that I attribute to the Scandanavian affinity to nature spirits, good humor in the darkest of ni... More
