Robert Levy has been a Reiki Master since 1996 and began teaching in 2001. He is a nontraditional Reiki Master, though he was trained in the Usui tradition. He chooses to empower people in his workshops by encouraging them to believe - and know in their hearts - that Reiki is an evolving modality and what each practitioner brings to Reiki is exactly what should be done at that time, in that place.
He combines, and also encourages his students to combine, Reiki with other healing modalities. Robert has been conducting Reiki Workshop in all three levels of Reiki, as well as both traditional and/or Shamanic Reiki sessions for over a decade.
He co-authored, Shamanic Reiki: Expanded Ways of Working with Universal Life Force Energy with Llyn Roberts and Shamanism: The Book of Journeys with Dr. Eve Bruce.
His shamanic background is varied. Since 1995 he has studied and with many western shamans including John Perkins, Llyn Roberts, Dr. Eve Bruce, Tom Cowan, Alberto Villoldo, John Matthews and Robert Moss to name a few.
Robert has studied with indigenous shamans and his shamanic healings follow the tradition of his teachers, Ipupiara Makunaiman from the Ure-e-wau-wau tribe of Brazil and his wife, Peruvian shaman Claicha Toscano. His practice includes Reiki, shamanic healings, cleansing, and counseling. He is a cofounder of the New York Shamanic Circle and currently living in Aventura, Florida.
