I am a Reiki practitioner and teacher based in the Philadelphia metropolitan area with easy reach to Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. I have been practicing Reiki since 2002. I studied under teachers of Western Reiki of various lineages in the US having participated in a master level training in 2004. I first encountered Japanese Reiki at the Shinpiden level in 2005 (Komyo Reiki Kai) and first met Frans at his Shinpiden course in Chicago in October 2006. Since that time I have studied with the International House of Reiki and continue my practice and teachings under the guidance of Frans and Bronwen Stiene. In 2007, I traveled to Japan to experience Mt Kurama above the City of Kyoto first hand. I began teaching the system of Reiki under Shibumi protocols in 2009. Our classes are smalland are taught meeting once a week for several weeks. This is my preferred way of teaching giving the students ample opportunity to practice what they have learned between classes.
I am by trade a Health Physicist (specialist in Radiation Physics and Radiation Protection) as a sometimes more than full time occupation. In this profession my clients are Nuclear Power facilities, National Laboratories and Nuclear Pharmacies. My specialties are Transportation of Radioactive Materials and nuclear site decommissioning. What this means is that I am only intermittently available for teaching Reiki. This presents an interesting combination of the scientist in spiritual practice. Surprisingly it is not at all incompatible. When I am not in the field, I often take long sojourns during which I like to teach Reiki and attend Frans’ Retreats and student intensives when he is in the states.
Registered Practitioner & Teacher, Shibumi International Reiki Association since 2009.
