S.A.C. Dip (Anatomy and Physiology Advanced)
My name is Miriam Stollar. I am a member of the UK Reiki Federation. I have been practicing Reiki since 2002. To do my Western-style Reiki Master’s training I went to America in 2009 for a week’s residential course with the International Centre for Reiki Training (ICRT). My teachers were William Rand, Laurelle Gaia and Michael Baird. I am now a professional member of RMA (Reiki Membership Association), which indicates I have fulfilled all my Reiki training with a licenced member of the ICRT. I also completed Karuna® Reiki with William at Glastonbury and Stonehenge in 2010.
In 2011 I had further training with Jikiden Reiki teachers Tadao Yamaguchi and Rika Tanaka. I am now a Jikiden Reiki Practitioner. Jikiden Reiki is based on the teachings of Dr Churjiro Hayashi handed down to Chiyoko Yamaguchi. Jikiden is Japanese-style Reiki. More recently, I have undertaken a two day intensive workshop on Japanese Techniques given by Frank Arjava Petter. Arjava is the vice president of the Jikiden Reiki Centre in Japan.
I have a very questioning mind so when I found out about Reiki Teacher, Frans Steine, co-founder of the International House of Reiki Training (IHRT) and that he taught Usui Sensei (Japanese for Teacher) teachings and meditation techniques, I signed up for his class in the Cotwolds in 2014. My training with Frans Steine is on-going. A group of us join him one or two times a month for a ‘Virtual Reiki Practice’ where we practise meditation, chanting and other Reiki techniques.
I have been most fortunate to find first rate teachers.
I have a S.A.C. Dip. (Anatomy and Physiology). This has greatly helped me understand the miraculous workings of the human body.
I am a self-employed Reiki Practitioner/Teacher. Since early 2014, I have been volunteering as a Reiki practitioner at St Joseph’s Hospice (StJH) in Mare Street E8. In October 2014 I joined a community project in Newham also run by StJH. We offer our skills in acupuncture, massage, reflexology and Reiki to patients and carers.
As part of ongoing development at StJH, I have received excellent training in dealing with difficult situations, especially when patients are receiving palliative care. I also learnt that going to a hospice does not mean you are going to die within the next few days or weeks. Terminally ill patients means there is no immediate cure but symptoms can be relieved and pain can be managed with medication and alternative therapies such as Reiki.
In my previous career, I taught Sanskrit at St James Senior Boys School as well as assisting children who needed extra support in a classroom situation. In 2013 I decided to retire from teaching and pursue a new path as a full time Reiki practitioner/Teacher. I do not like to use the term ‘Master’ because for me I am a perpetual student; always learning. It is my wish to share Reiki with others. Classes can be arranged to suit individual needs. I also offer distant healing.
