In the Press

Adam Mountford Show on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire Radio 1997

My first ever radio interview and it scared the crap out of me. This was way back in the days when I had just learned and started teaching Reiki for the first time. Back in 1997, it was still relatively new and most people hadn’t heard of it, so here I am telling the world all about Reiki and getting very flustered. The interview goes okay, though, mostly. Sort of. This link takes you to my upload of the show on SoundCloud. 

My Spirit Radio 20th October 2006

I gave this interview on October 20th, 2006, just after the publication of my book ‘Reiki Jin Kei Do: The Way of Compassion & Wisdom‘. It was a real pleasure to chat to Chrissie Rhyman at My Spirit Radio. You can find the player for the original interview below. This was a part of their ‘Body Bliss’ series of interviews: 

Body Bliss Part 2

An Interview with Sherry Anshara on Achieve Radio 23rd May 2007

Sherry was a wonderful interviewer, and I loved talking to her about my book ‘Reiki Jin Kei Do: The Way of Compassion & Wisdom‘, that had come out the previous autumn. Sherry had a regular show on Achieve Radio, but, as far as I can tell, Achieve don’t have an Archive of their shows so you can find it here on SoundCloud.

The Kriss Van Hook interview on Achieve Radio 26th June 2007

Another Achieve Radio show. This time Kriss Van Hook’s ‘My Spiritual Healer Radio Show‘. It was lovely to chat to Kriss about my Reiki book, but unfortunately, like the Sherry Anshara interview that went before it, no Archive of the show, so again I am sending you to my upload of the interview on SoundCloud, which you can find here.

Karma Cafe with James Beam & Chandi Devi 12th June 2008

My Reiki book was really starting to make some noise in the global Reiki community about this time, and so I was being connected to and interviewed by all manner of people around the world. This was one of those interviews, broadcast live in California, and so being in the UK, I was up in the middle of the night, doing my very best to sound wide awake. You can hear the interview here.

Interview with Chris ‘OneFeather’ Anderson 7th March 2010

This was a great interview to do with Chris ‘OneFeather’, as a part of his ‘OneFeather Journal Radio‘ show on BlogTalk radio for the group Humanity Healing. This was one of the first interviews that I gave about 12seconds for Peace. You can find the interview on BlogTalk Radio here.

The Planting Seeds 4 Peace Interview with the Lynne Hazelden & Marcia Johnson 22nd March 2010

Hot on the heels of the Chris ‘OneFeather’ Anderson interview, was this one with the late Lynne Hazeleden. I met Lynne just before this interview (or after… I can’t remember now) at her home in Brighton. We had many long chats about life, art, peace, and Reiki whilst taking in the spectacular scenery of the English coastline. Lynne and Marcia contributed a video to the 12seconds for Peace project, on behalf of their own initiative ‘Planting Seeds 4 Peace‘. You can hear my interview with them here.

Interview with Cheryl Stringall 13th July 2010

This interview took place on July 13th, 2010 and was conducted by Cheryl Stringall and her husband, the musician Tony Lowe. This was soon after the launch of 12seconds for Peace and I spent a wonderful weekend in the company of Cheryl and Tony at their home in Dorset. In exchange for their amazing hospitality, I gave Tony a Reiki attunement, which I think blew him away!

You can find the interview page here: String, but you can find the full interview on the player below.

Accompanying the interview was this biography of me, taken from Cheryl’s site.

Interview with Lisa Tenzin-Dolma 28th August 2010

The interview with the author, Lisa Tenzin-Dolma, took place in August 2010, at the height of 12seconds for Peace’s success. It only ever appeared as a Facebook Note, unfortunately, but it is preserved for posterity here also.

Interview with Sandra Harrick on Soul Awakenings 7th October 2010

This was a great interview to do with Sandra Harrick on her Soul Awakenings show. I was living in Sudan at the time, researching another book project (‘Islam’s Gandhi‘), when Sandra contacted me to do this interview. The interview ranges across the 12seconds for Peace project as well as my Reiki book and everything in between those two markers. You can hear the interview here on SoundCloud.

Talent Spotlight Magazine 22nd February 2012

This interview, first published in Talent Spotlight Magazine on 22nd February 2012, was conducted by the editor of Talent Spotlight, Jessica Gilbert, at the time when 12seconds for Peace was causing huge ripples in the global Peace movement. The 2011 revolution in Egypt, put 12seconds for Peace on the shelf, where it still sits, waiting for me to take it down and resurrect it. You can access the interview at the link above, but it is also reproduced here.

Voices of Women Worldwide Inc & VOW-TV 5th April 2016

This interview was conducted by Marwa Adam during a visit to Alexandria, travelling up from Cairo,  during April 2016. Marwa wanted to talk to me about my work as a writer and teacher of Reiki. The interview appeared in the Voices for Women Worldwide Ning network and so you can’t access it unless you are a member. The full interview is, therefore, reproduced here.
