A dedicated, spiritual and intuitive being of great compassion, and an herbalist, artist, poet and author of several books and publications, Lori was introduced to Reiki in 2010 by her longtime friend.  Studying Reiki Level I/Shoden, Level II/Okuden, and Levels IIIA and IIIB/Shinpiden with Joyce Leonard of Santa Cruz Reiki Works, in 2013 Lori became a professional Reiki Practitioner/RP for people and animals; in 2014 The Reiki Space™ expanded as Lori received the great privilege of becoming her teacher’s first Reiki Master Teacher/RMT graduate.  (View Lori’s RMT Training Certification).  Also in 2014, Lori completed the Animal Reiki Core Curriculum, taught by Kathleen Prasad of Animal Reiki Source and the Shelter Animal Reiki Association/SARA.

Lori’s Reiki Lineage offers an integrative connection to Usui-san’s Reiki teachings, focused on personal development, promoting relaxation, and a restoration of balance and optimal well-being of the body, mind and spirit.  Lori’s daily, dedicated Reiki self-practice, including meditation, as well as ongoing training, volunteerism, and an active participation in a global Reiki Community provides a solid foundation in which to share with her students, clients, and readers.

the_reiki_space_dojo_hanko_copyright_2014_lori_mcclellanWith family ties to Japan, a lifelong interest in self-improvement, and Japanese culture and design, it was a natural course for Lori to choose the classical Japanese style of Usui Reiki Ryoho, which focuses not just on hands-on/off healing (Tenohira), but also on Meditation, Jumon, Shirushi, and abiding by the Reiki Precepts of: Do not anger; Do not worry; Be humble; Be honest in your work; and Be compassionate to yourself and to others.  Reiki provides a way to connect with her own, innate purpose and adds yet another dimension in holistic living, as well as a fullness of joy in her life through helping students, clients, and readers on their own path to well-being.

Each facet of Lori’s life—both professionally and personally—is based on the importance of connecting with others on a deeper level, and helping others achieve greater happiness, wholeness, and peace.  A West San Jose, California native, she and her family take time to volunteer in the community and around the world.  Their Shiba Inu dog Taishi and feral rescue tortie cat, Charlotte, bring added joy to their lives. Additionally, Lori is a professional artist/designer and amateur musician, playing the accordion, soprano recorder and Native American flute, finding art and music as a wonderful meditation. Lori has lived in many parts of the U.S. and treasures her family, nature and friends—both human and animal.

The path to well-being is different for each person or animal.  Some have a direct route, while others meander to and fro.  Reiki assists in bringing balance and harmony to the journey.  For this reason the name of The Reiki Space™ was chosen, as the term, “the Reiki space” is well-known in Reiki practitioner and client circles as the energy of Reiki itself, and its always-beneficial influence, or wherever Reiki is, as it not just surrounds infinitely, but dwells within.

Consider that a Reiki treatment is not a “treat,” in the sense that it is a rare moment saved for special occasions only, but instead, may it become an enrichment in our lives as vital as happiness—something everyone should experience on a regular basis.
