Levels I, II, Mastership

In 1992, while seeking a solution to a serious back problem usually requiring surgery, Suzanne Parnell, through a series of synchronicities, was led to learn First and Second Degree Reiki in a ten day period in California from John Harvey Gray--who at the time was teaching for his former wife, Beth Gray, who had become seriously ill. As it unfolded, the names of both of these "Takata Masters" appear on Suzanne's First and Second Degree certificates, the significance of which she would not realize for several years. Within two years, Suzanne had healed her back without surgery using the Reiki she learned from John Gray, whom she had come to realize was one of the twenty-two masters trained by Hawayo Takata, the woman who brought Reiki from Japan to the West. Seeing the power of Reiki to heal her back problems (as well as other issues), Suzanne began her journey through the amazing world of energy healing and Mind Body Medicine. She became a Reiki Master through John Harvey Gray in 1996, and has taught Reiki on a continuous basis ever since, first at her Ajna Center for Reiki in Fayetteville, AR, now at StoneWind Institute for Mind Body Medicine in Chester, AR.

Suzannne Parnell holds a Ph.D. in Medieval Literature from Tulane University with specialization in palæography (the study of handwritten manuscripts), in particular medieval scientific and medical manuscripts, and a sub-specialty in the history of medicine. Since 1997 she has worked with Indigenous Elders in North and South America to combine Reiki with shamanic wisdom to develop more effective tools for helping people and the Earth. She became a DreamWeaver Facilitator in 1997 and uses Reiki in conjunction with the energetic methods of DreamWeaving.

Suzanne has written and taught extensively on aspects of healing with subtle energy and over the last twenty-four years has worked periodically with Vietnam, Gulf War, and IEF/OEF Veterans using Reiki, Meditation, Johrei, and the DreamWeaver. Suzanne teaches classes in Traditional Reiki, Meditation, Earth Healing, Qigong, aspects of advanced energy healing, and BioConsciousness Studies at StoneWind Institute for Mind Body Medicine. She offers individual Reiki and DreamWeaver sessions by appointment. Suzanne has trained several Reiki Masters in different parts of the country, is one of the founders of The Traditional Reiki Institute, and of Warrior's Way Foundation.
