Leadership and drive to get things done! I have a vision for seeing RA grow and be the best reiki membership organisation in Australia.
And helping to find the best people for the organisation and creating a balanced structure to move the organisation forward.

Why did you get involved with Reiki Australia?
I want to see Reiki seen as a serious healing modality in the community and see reiki sit in the professional world. Networking with the Board, Exec Team and Members have helped strengthen and expand my personal Reiki. It’s a great group to be involved in.

I have a passion for Beauty, enhancing people’s lives both inside and out, and I might give too many hugs! When I’m not running my Beauty and Reiki Business, you MAY find me watching an episode of Young & The Restless 😉

Alan White
Director

Sandringham, Victoria

What do you bring to Reiki Australia?
I have connections across public, private and ex-service organisations which allow me to promote the benefits of Reiki and of learning Reiki for yourself. I work alongside the project team to promote the use of Reiki in hospitals, retirement homes, aged care facilities and nursing homes, as well as with current and ex-service personnel and their families.

Why did you get involved with Reiki Australia?
I joined to further its objectives: being the promotion of Reiki Australia as a professional body fully supporting Reiki practitioners and focusing on the use of Reiki in the wider community. Of encouraging members to become involved in taking Reiki into their communities, and encouraging practitioners to use Reiki regularly on themselves to demonstrate how good one can look and feel with Reiki.

Who is the real Alan?
I have an enthusiasm for colour in my clothes, so I have 30 genuine Hawaiian shirts - plenty of colour - and a few Mambo shirts as well. I am also an avid military plane enthusiast, being an ex-Air Force Vietnam Vet, I haven’t lost the excitement in seeing, hearing and watching aircraft of all types.
