I'm Marlan, Reiki Master/Teacher. I began my training and certification with The Los Angeles Reiki Center in 1984 with Joyce J. Morris, the 44th Reiki Master in the true Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage. Throughout my practice, I have witnessed the amazing and humbling effects of Energy Healing ashes, calms and relieves pain at all levels, and I love sharing it with anyone who gives permission.
I am also a filmmaker, novelist, screenwriter, playwright, journalist, publicist with an eclectic background in many fields including publicity, marketing, and law. My heritage is Russian American. I find the variety of my interests enables me to connect with people who come to the studio for assistance.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a very specific form of energy healing in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body.
Dr. Mikao Usui, brought the Reiki method of healing into human awareness in 1922. He began teaching others after a serious earthquake hit Japan and he felt urged to spread his knowledge.
- NEW WORKSHOP STARTING
- Defend Against Energy Vampires & Narcissists!
Sundays at 10:30 a.m. Starting Feb. 10, 2019
4 Week Series
"As an empath, you have special gifts that bring light to the world. Your compassion and empathy are healing salves for the people around you and the planet. You were not put on earth to be the energy source of a vampire. You are here to bring your light to the world." -- Christiane Northrup, M.D., Dodging Energy Vampires Author
We empaths are susceptible to "Energy Vampires" -- those people who hone in on the "nice" folks who live to help and serve others. You may know them by their more common name: "Narcissists."
An empath is someone with a heightened sensitivity that enables them to feel what others feel, and a desire to relieve the pain of others.
We can protect ourselves. This workshop will explore how empaths get hooked by those who would feed off their energy supply and provide exercises and modalties to unhook!
Free yourself and live your own life!

Reiki Hands by Cindy Bonaparte
"Marlan is a gifted healer with a practical approach to Reiki. I appreciate her honesty in all matters when discussing findings following a session. Marlan is genuinely interested in hearing what I'm going through in life and how any blockages may relate. She has been my go-to healer for a few years now and for a number of reasons. Marlan is straightforward yet has a sense of humor. I also studied with her and received my level I Reiki certification. If you're looking for a Reiki healer, look no further. Marlan is the real deal. I feel so blessed having met Marlan. It's as if she helped bring me back to life. Thank you for everything, Marlan!"
Carly Lopez, TV Director
"I studied Reiki I and II with Marlan and practiced professionally for 5 years. She was very supportive to me as a student and it's a gift to have had access to her wisdom and experience. It was an invaluable student - teacher relationship. I really appreciate her teaching style, she takes the work very seriously, but still carries a good sense of humor and makes things fun...Finally this year I felt that I should ask her to teach me the Master Level class and she accepted. Almost immediately I was getting interest from potential students and recently called to work with a group of women. I called her and she advised me how to approach it, to take care of myself etc....And it was a beautiful experience! You can't really put a price on the value of her experience with various modalities in energy work, meditation, her creativity and life experience. Thanks Marlan! Honored to have you as a teacher for all of my Reiki training!"
Cindy Bonaparte, Earth Mother Bonaparte Healing Arts
"I'm working with late stage ovarian cancer and have been going through chemo for months. Marlan came to San Diego and give me a series of Reiki healings. Each time, my body sang a renewed tune, more loving and accepting of itself, when she had finished.
Gabrielle Welford, Ph.D., University of Hawaii
