I remember the first time I gave a radio interview back in 1997. I was just getting into my stride as a teacher of Reiki (‘Reiki Master’ they call it… at least those with egos and those who need to look up the word ‘Master’ in the Oxford English, do). Reiki was pretty new in my stretch of the woods back in 1997. My stretch of the woods being the little market town of Rugby, in Warwickshire.
So Reiki being new, I got to appear on a local BBC radio show, with one of my students, to talk about Universal Life Force energy. I was scared stiff, and I fluffed it. You can probably tell that I fluffed it, and you don’t have to listen too hard between the cracks. You can tell.
Since then, having gone on to write a book about Reiki, having created an epic failure of a global peace project called ’12seconds for Peace’, having bummed around Sudan working on another book that eventually didn’t happen, I have appeared all over the place in magazines, and on the web and done a whole bunch of radio interviews. I don’t crap myself at the thought anymore.
But all that stuff was scattered. All over the place. Dusty nooks of once Big-Time websites such as BlogTalk Radio (does anyone use that anymore?), fish and chip wrapper newspapers, and forgotten blogs that haven’t been updated in years.
It was time to pull it all together and put it here on my own, just out of the box website. Why waste all that good promo stuff? So you can find everything that I have managed to scrounge up so far here: In the Press. There’s more. Mostly sitting in a box in the roof space of my house, back in the UK. When I can get my hands on it, I will put that up too.
I guess, I just started to realise, it’s time to get real and push my work out there more. Now I finally kicked the dreadful school-teaching habit. So please go check out some of my interviews. Dip into my past, and try not to listen too hard between the cracks.
