A Celeb-Reiki roundup

We have so many Celeb-Reikies this week that they get a Reiki Roundup all their own. To help us keep track, we'll put each name in bold

First up is Reiki Master and author Pamela Miles, pictured just to the right of designer and activist Donna Karan in a great group portrait spread across two pages of the April issue of Allure magazine. The photo goes with an article about Karan's new Urban Zen Institute at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. Other familiar celebrity faces in the group include yoga teacher Rodney Yee and his wife, yoga teacher Colleen Saidman Yee. Miles, the Yees, and five other experts make up the Urban Zen faculty. 

Coincidentally, the other day I heard from a Reiki master colleague who's one of the Institute's first class of integrative therapists, and she was thrilled with the quality of the program and all she's learned so far. 

From Urban Zen we move on to the big screen, where the hit graphic novel Watchmen is now a hit movie. Malin Akerman, who plays Silk Spectre II, the lead female character, mentions Reiki in an interview with about the making of Watchmen. (Thanks to Marcus, a regular reader in California, for spotting that one.)

Our next Celeb-Reiki is also a star of the big screen, as well as the small screen: Bollywood and reality TV star Shilpa Shetty.

In her spare time, Shetty has co-founded a new Mumbai spa, Iosis, where one of the therapies available "will be Reiki, the holistic treatment that she finds very effective," according to a report at
