Reiki master Brett Bevell is author of several books, including Energy Healing for Everyone, New Reiki Software for Divine Living, The Reiki Magic Guide to Self-Attunement, and Reiki For Spiritual Healing. A poet and performance artist, he is also author of America Needs a Woman President and America Needs a Buddhist President, a poem that initially aired nationwide on NPR’s All Things Considered.
Since receiving his Reiki master initiation in 1995, Bevell has dedicated himself to discovering new Reiki techniques that work collaboratively with the higher self. These simple techniques are not only highly effective, but also shift Reiki into a practice of daily living that can transform even the most mundane aspects of our lives into works of healing.
Also a spoken-word artist, Bevell has electrified audiences around the world with his live oral recitations, and he has often been compared to the late poet Allen Ginsberg. His writing has received critical acclaim from authors such as Anne Waldmen, Rha Goddess, and John Perkins, and has appeared in numerous magazines, including Earth First Journal and Tricycle. Bevell’s poetry is featured on several CDs and is part of NPR’s permanent website archives. Brett is also workshop faculty at Omega Institute, Kripalu and Alex Grey's Chapel of the Sacred Mirrors.
