Karen Riviere is a ninth generation Reiki Master Teacher in the direct lineage of Reiki founder Mikao Usui. She was attuned, studied, trained and co-taught directly under and with Michael Abedin. Karen proudly continues his Reiki legacy by continuing to teach a new generation of students.
Reiki has been an integral part of Karen's personal healing journey through being widowed twice and Long Haul Covid.
In spring of 2023, Karen made a life changing 21-day Reiki pilgrimage to Japan, the birthplace of Reiki, including climbing Mt Kurama and learning with Reiki practitioners and teachers from all over the world. Since returning, her Reiki practice has been stronger and more intuitive.
Karen is grateful to volunteer regularly as a Reiki practitioner with Vet TRIIP, Inc. (https://www.vettriip.org), a non-profit organization in San Antonio that serves military veterans living with chronic pain and/or post-traumatic stress. Her understanding of healing and the body has increased tremendously from working with the other volunteer practitioners and sharing Reiki with so many different people.
