Phyllis Furumoto/Paul Mitchell
In December of 2008, Phyllis interviewed Paul Mitchell, a master also initiated by Hawayo Takata. They reminisced about the masters who had been initiated by her. Since this interview, several of the masters have passed their final transition... leaving just a handful of the original 21 present today. The dynamic teaching Hawayo Takata imparted was not from a written outline, but from her decades of experience with Reiki and the trust she had in the relationship of Reiki with each student.... More

In this case, being let go from her job and the death of her mother triggered a two year process that has been life altering and healing. Wilhelmina shows us that the magic of timing and the trust in her i... More

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is more than just not coping. Recognized now by the medical community as a physical, emotional, and mental response to a traumatic event, this disorder may be more prevalent than we realize. When people come out of an acknowledged obviously prolonged stressful situation such as being in a war zone or being abused continually it is not difficult to accept that something has happened. Fran's experience of being bullied in her place of work has brought her to a ... More

When Sonja and I met at the annual Northwest Reiki Gathering in Oregon, the question of themes for the radio show arose.
