Jojan Jonker
A regular on the show in the last months, Jojan leads us into conversations about a cosmology for Reiki. We touched on the topic of Good and Evil in the practice of Reiki. (see April 5, 2012) As we thought about this topic, we realized that the greater question was "Does the practice of Reiki have a cosmology?" If yes, then what are the components that all Reiki practitioners have in common? Please join our conversation by going on the face book page or writing an email via the reiki sho... More

Sheri Snively
In the New Year's Show, I read a quote from Sheri's book...Heaven in the Midst of Hell. The author of the book has added thought provoking questions in my search for a peaceful world. What does this mean? Does it mean that war is the only un-peaceful state? And can one really find humanity in the midst of a war zone? Sheri has done just that and been able to communicate this with us without over sentimentalization. This honors the reader and the people in her stories and her own experien... More

In this show there is an introduction to the theme by Holly Near, a songwriter, singer, activist with a big heart. One of her songs inspired me to ask Collene Delaney to join me in an exploration of Teacher and Student in our practices of Reiki. What are the roles? How can we open to the experience of being both teacher and student in the same moment? Are we willing to open to our natural relationship of being both sides of giving and receiving in the same moment? How do we honor those who ha... More
