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.
