A Celeb-Reiki roundup

We have so many Celeb-Reikies this week that they get their own Reiki Roundup!

Here in the United States, as you may have heard, people have been getting together and shouting at each other for the past couple of months at "town hall" meetings about reforming our healthcare system, and much of the shouting has had little to do with health issues. One of the people who showed up and spoke -- calmly -- at an atypically civil town hall meeting in Sag Harbor, New York, was designer and integrative healthcare advocate Donna Karan. The Urban Zen founder kept her remarks on-topic and on point. "We want to care for the patient, not the disease," she said.

Speaking of health and care, Celeb-Reikies Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife, Reiki Master Lisa Oz, are under the great bright spotlight of television every weekday, now that "The Dr. Oz Show" made its premiere September 14. We wish them the best with the show and hope they'll be doing a show about Reiki soon. They'll be traveling the country in a large "Highway to Health" bus with an enormous photo of Oz on the side, along with the slogan "Live. Right. Now." Oz invites people to flag down the bus if they have health questions or issues they'd like to talk about with him. (Hey, Dr. Oz! Over here! Let's talk about Reiki!)

We have no idea whether Japanese tennis player Kajisjita Reiki knows anything about the healing method that shares his name, but he's a Celeb-Reiki in any case.

Speaking of sports, the world's best-known Reiki-practicing athlete, Olympic-medal-winning cyclist Hayden Roulston of New Zealand, is in the headlines again, for two reasons. First, after his great performance in his first Tour de France this summer, Roulston has been picked up by the world's top team, Columbia HTC. And of more immediate interest, Roulston was just chosen to lead his country's team in next week's world cycling championships in Switzerland. What makes Roulston's accomplishments particularly notable to Reiki practitioners is that before he discovered Reiki just over three years ago, Roulston had just been forced to retire from cycling and all sports at age 25 due to a life-threatening heart condition.

Re: Celeb-Reiki
The Japanese tennis player is KAJISHITA Reiki; and his surname is not the same 'Reiki' as in Usui Reiki Ryoho [it's written with different kanji, and has a different meaning] :)

Thanks so much for that correction, James! All I knew was that he showed up on my regular searches for Reiki in the news.

And thanks again for your Reiki Pages web site -- it's such a great resource.

Good thing I noticed your reply - gives me a chance to correct what I wrote.
I meant to say:
The Japanese tennis player is KAJISHITA Reiki; and his FIRST NAME is not the same 'Reiki' as in Usui Reiki Ryoho.
