Thanks for the info on Ableton (think it's a bit beyond my price range just at the moment!).
Thanks too for the offer of help re the website. I'm holding off on the Google ads until after I've submitted my site to some directories. I'm with SBI (Sitesell/Site Build It) which is a bit of a one stop shop - and I'm still exploring all the many options they provide. I know I've a way to go with my site - but if I need help in the future I'll let you know!
As for finding a Reiki master, you could search yell.com for someone in your area - under 'health and beauty' category, then 'alternative health' then Reiki. Or perhaps do a Google businesses search. Or there are ads in Kindred Spirit magazine.
Also, the Reiki Association has a list of masters who are a member of their association but you have to pay for the list. (Also, just because a master is a member and on a list doesn't necessarily mean they are the best for you!)
I think the most important thing when choosing a Reiki teacher is for you to find someone you trust and like. Best way is to ring them up and talk to them - see how they come across and how they answer your questions. Have a list of questions ready and don't commit yourself until you've found one you 'click' with and who 'feels right'.
There are so many books on Reiki now, and you'll probably be attracted to the ones that are most useful for you. There are some great books around. However, I think "An Introduction to Reiki" by Penelope Quest is a good starting point. 'The Spirit of Reiki' is good too. It's a collaborative work by 3 top Reiki masters: William Rand, Walter Lubeck and Frank Arjava Petter. (Lots of common sense and debunking of various 'Reiki myths').
Good Luck with your search Dan - and if you've any Reiki related questions you can always ask me! I'll be happy to do my best to answer them if I can.
Danny......... two million dollars are in the mail :) I hope they are a sign of good things to come. I didn't get your original email but did get your post ... mea culpa... I only just found out that there is a section of posts at the bottom of the page.... how embarrassing.
Yes I can make those cloaks! If you want to see some of my work, go to maddstylin.weebly.com
It's mainly there as an e-folio.
How'd yo find me?
I read your goals - pretty impressive! Especially letting go of the negative people. I have been sent quite a project on that subject!
