|Paula Horan is a psychologist and internationally acclaimed seminar leader. Her book Empowerment through Reiki, released in 1989, was one of the first ever published on the subject and has been a steady and much appreciated presence in the Reiki community. Although known mostly for her work with Reiki, Paula has a general interest in all authentic forms of vibrational medicine and spirituality that can benefit her and others.
From 1992 to 1997, she spent much of her time with her Satguru Papaji (H.W.L.Poonja) in Lucknow, India. Papaji was a living Buddha and self realized master in the tradition of the famous Ramana Maharshi of Tiruvanmalai. Several breakthrough experience with him changed her approach and teaching style drastically. Her focus shifted from self-improvement to the kind of self-inquiry, which reveals the perfection of Being in every moment. This also the approach she stresses in her more recent books Reiki: 108 Questions and Answers and The Ultimate Reiki Touch. At this point, her greatest gift to her students and readers is her ability to evoke the Joy and Freedom of true Self.
Part of the year she also lives in Kathmandu, Nepal, where she is undergoing training with two Dzogchen Yogis of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. She has stopped offering a regular program of seminars but is willing to teach First, Second and Third Degree Reiki and the Core Empowerment Training upon request. Paula, who was given the name Laxmi by her Beloved Satguru Papaji, also sometimes shares Satsang to help carry forth his silent message of the Heart.
