Brian Brunius is the real deal. He exudes a peaceful calm, he is literally on a different level. He has such a lovely way of speaking and imparting the story of reiki. I could listen to him for hours. I have had treatments with Brian as well as completing various trainings with him. Brian’s amazing energy and hilarious sense of humor will endear him to you immediately. The techniques he has taught me have quite literally changed my life. If you are curious about reiki, treat yourself to a session with Brian and if you are interested in training in reiki, this is absolutely your man. He is authentic, empathic and a true healer. I would give him 10,000 stars if it were available. Truly, an amazing human being.
Last Feb 2018, I participated in Reiki Level 1 class with Brian. What an amazing experience! His energy, passion, humor makes this class fun and light. Brian is also a great storyteller, you will be sitting at the edge of your seat! You can also just feel the energy as you walk into the space. It was a life changing experience, I can’t imagine my life not having gone through this training with Brian. I made the decision to take Reiki Level 2, 4 months after. Another unbelievable experience that went so much deeper. You can feel that Brian is holding space for you as level 2 can be a powerful experience. Another amazing perk are the Reiki Circles that are offered once a month. For you to practice on other students and receive treatment. Everyone is so open and welcoming! I almost never miss these monthly circles. You will always walk out feeling better 🙂 I’ve also had the lovely opportunity to work with Diane. She is such a genuine, warm, open person. And super intuitive. She’s helped me open my heart, in the biggest way I did not know was possible. I had a powerful session with her prior to my trip in Hawaii. Within the first few days of my trip, I met my now fiance 🙂 You won’t regret a session with Diane, don’t hesitate!
Brian is the Reiki Master I’ve been looking for! As a Reiki practitioner with my own business, I had already received my Level I & II attunements from other teachers; however, I recently repeated my Level I with Brian through his partnership with SF Reiki Center and am so glad I did! His training provided an incredibly helpful solid, practical foundation in traditional Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki. As a teacher, Brian is engaging, thorough, warm, and intuitive about each student’s needs, and he’s just a lovely person as well! I can’t wait to repeat my Level II attunement with him!
Brian is an amazing healer, master, and teacher. His calming benevolent presence makes you feel at ease whence you enter his office, and he’s always sure to greet you with a welcoming, loving smile. I’ve only had one private session with Brian (which was incredible) and it convinced me of the power of Reiki and I quickly signed up for his Reiki Lv 1 course. I’ve been practicing for about a half a year now and can’t wait to sign up for his Lv 2. I recommend Brian to everyone who’s interested in alternative methods of healing, and anyone who wants to expand their mind, heart, and consciousness. It’s done wonders for me, and I’m sure it’ll do wonders for you. Brian is an extraordinary person, who offers an extraordinary service, plain and simple.
Brian is an amazing teacher and healer. He takes his time during Reiki sessions to understand his client and assist them in what first brought them to Reiki. After I had learned about Reiki from a friend, I searched for Reiki masters in NYC and happened upon Brian’s studio – I feel fortunate enough to be both a client and a student almost two years after my first Reiki class. Brian’s guidance has helped bring tremendous healing and new experiences into my world. Both my family and friends have been referred to NYC Reiki Center and hope this review will serve to recommend others.
As a healthcare professional, I decided to study Reiki after having a remarkable experience with it in Costa Rica. Lucky for me, Brian was teaching when I signed up for Level 1 at the San Francisco Reiki Center! He is accessible to all his students and will guide you however far you want to take your practice. When I was ready for Level 2, I knew I had to study with him again, and I booked a flight from San Francisco to New York to make that class, heading straight to his warm, welcoming office from the airport! My only regret is not living closer to attend the circles he hosts for students! Sign up!
I recently completed level 1 training with Brian at NYC Reiki Center. The experience was nothing short of a life changing event. If only words could express the deep sense of gratitude I have for Brian as a teacher. He is extremely personable, cheerful and has an aura of positivity and calmness around him. His connectivity with my thoughts and his suggestions on using Reiki to deal with my struggles has proved a complete blessing for me and my family. I am truly indebted to Brian to offer such a new perspective to life and health. I am sure to come back to finish level 2 with him in Fall.
I absolutely enjoyed learning Reiki level 1. I went for it with no expectation and I was happy to feel my energy shifting during Reiki. Brian is kind, open and generous. He gave us a lot of information and advice. Another student was a sweetheart and I really appreciate the universe brought all of us together. Brian’s office felt like home, cozy, calm, relaxing. The experience was more then I expected, makes me question life and beliefs. Thank you for that.
I completed Level 1 and 2 Reiki with Brian a couple years ago in San Francisco, as well as received personal Reiki treatments. I felt at home and safe with Brian as my teacher. He’s a gifted and supportive teacher – while teaching traditional hand positions and passing along the oral tradition of Reiki, he also encourages intuition and your own unique gifts that you bring to Reiki. Since completing Level 2, he’s continued to be a gentle guide and mentor; someone I go to for support. I highly recommend Brian as a teacher and Reiki Master.
I took Reiki Level 1 with Brian. I appreciated that he taught Usui Shiki Ryoho, which I interpreted as the fundamentals of Reiki (there’s a lot of new stuff out there, but this is more based on tradition and the foundational principles). Brian’s also a warm, funny presence who immediately spotted that I was Type-A. Before we started the practical, he smiled and said, “I know you want it to be perfect — it’s okay, it’s simpler than you think.” He was a calming presence and it was nice that he was more hands-off, except to suggest hand positions that he tries to stay comfortable. Reiki really is something that runs through us all, and something that isn’t so complicated as we think. Brian’s also a great storyteller! A lot of learning Reiki is learning about the lineage, and you will really enjoy this part.
I took the Reiki Level 1 class with Brian Brunius. It was a great experience! I walked in a little skeptical about Reiki and walked out understanding and appreciating it so much more. If you are in NYC, there is no reason you should not do this course. Do not fall for the short courses and quick fixes. Do the real deal. The reasons are primarily around the instructor and the structure of the course.
Participating in Brian’s workshop was life changing. Brian’s way of teaching and storytelling made me want to make Reiki a part of my present and future and I highly recommend taking this journey with Brian. Thank you Brian for your wisdom and generosity. I’ll never forget you. I’ve put my Reiki skills to good use. Aloha from Hawaii.
I attended Brian’s Level I Reiki class, and I was blown away! I’ve been to other Reiki trainings. NO ONE has given the depth of knowledge that Brian gives. I walked away with an excellent working facility of the practice. He gives LOTS of hands-on practice in the class. You learn by DOING. Best training I’ve had since attending the Swedish Institute for Massage Therapy. So HAPPY I decided to start over with Brian!
