Who We Are

We’d like to get to know you, and our mothers raised us right. We know it’s polite to introduce ourselves before we ask the same of you. So here’s a little a bit about us—Susan and Paul Mitchell—and why we think Reiki is such a powerful force for healing.Susan & Paul

Susan Mitchell has treated thousands of people since she began practicing Reiki in 1978. She learned Reiki from Hawayo Takata, who brought Reiki from Japan to the West. As the long-time director of The Reiki Alliance and former assistant editor of Reiki Magazine International, she is a well-known and respected member of the international Reiki community. Susan has dedicated nearly her entire adult life—more than 35 years—to the practice and principles of Reiki. Witnessing the healing that comes through Reiki inspires Susan to help others find their own source of healing and wisdom.

Paul Mitchell has also practiced Reiki since 1978, much of that time teaching others Reiki so that they can better care for themselves and their families and friends. Paul has worked extensively with Phyllis Lei Furumoto, Hawayo Takata’s granddaughter and successor. With the support and prompting of Phyllis, Paul has taken his place as a teacher and leader in the worldwide Reiki community. He has traveled to over 22 countries doing classes, retreats, and workshops facilitating the ongoing process of healing and growth in Reiki.
