The most recent testimonials are presented at the top of the page.

Testimonial: There are many teachers of Reiki out there and opportunities to learn to be a Reiki practitioner either in person or on-line. I was seeking an in-person setting to earn my Reiki I and II certification, because I wanted to connect with the teacher and other students in a deeper way during my training. Stephen was a gracious host and made us feel warm and welcomed. I mean literally! He made sure we all had a favorite drink preference hot and ready the moment we arrived at his lovely little cabin in Cedaredge, Colorado. He had his pellet stove going so the place would feel cozy which it did, and I felt at ease. His approach to training was to allow our intuition to guide us before too much verbal instruction was given, and then to go over everything in detail. He also made sure that we each had ample time to talk about our experience as a giver, receiver or observer. 

I appreciated Stephens approach to teaching us in ways that activated the right side of the brain and tapping in with essence, which is what is connected with during Reiki treatments. He had many incredible stories to share and very cool, unexpected gifts. I would highly recommend his classes. Thank you, Stephen! Krissie Anderson, Reiki Practitioner Grand Junction, Colorado.

Testimonial: Stephen’s Reiki Classes were Amazing!  It was conducted in his home, which, while small, fit the class perfectly.  He had communicated in emails that he would tailor the class to us, and he did so masterfully!  I was comfortable from the moment I walked in and wished I could have another week or more learning from him.  His teaching style was immersive and experiential, which is much more fun and integrated with my soul so that I will remember it.  I feel confident that I can share with others what I have learned.  I am truly grateful to Stephen! Cindy Dickey, Reiki Practitioner Grand Junction, Colorado.

Testimonial: As one of three students who joined Stephen for Reiki I & Reiki II level training, I most appreciate Stephen’s empowering approach.  Our group had a wide range of intuitive and life experiences, which made for deeply meaningful learning and conversation.  I especially recognize the latitude in which Stephen encouraged us to take his teaching/empowerment, Dr. Usui’s methods, and our own experiences/intuition to freely create our own practice. I’m looking forward to when we meet again. Thank you, Stephen! Kim Turner, Reiki Practitioner Grand Junction, Colorado.

Testimonial: Taking Reiki I, II, and III with Stephen has changed the way I live my life. I feel like that is cliché to say, but it really has changed me deep in the fiber of my being. I use Reiki every single day in one way or another.

Stephen’s ongoing support not only in Reiki and Essence, but in life has been invaluable. His support and guidance have helped me to recognize and strive toward eliminating certain limiting beliefs about myself and my abilities. He has helped me be more comfortable and confident in who I am and what my purpose is in this lifetime.

He has the patience of a saint with my stubbornness and sarcasm (which is a go-to when I am pushed out of my comfort zone). He challenges me to think outside the box and view things in a different light, as well as to come up with my own explanations instead of always giving me the answers.

I have a deep appreciation for his ability to also explain things scientifically so that my logical mind is satisfied. He’s not only been an amazing teacher, but also a dear friend whom I know I can always turn to for guidance when I am lost. I’m extremely grateful to have him as my guide and fortunate that I stumbled upon his class by sheer “luck”. May I be blessed enough to cross paths with him many more lifetimes. Amanda Mayfield, RMT – Grand Junction, Colorado.

Testimonial: Having experienced the teachings of Stephen for Reiki 1 and 2, I was fortunate enough to return to him for the Reiki 3 Master Class.  I was not disappointed.  Stephen’s knowledge of the subject is immense, and he does not hesitate to share what he knows with each student so they will understand and be able to put into use the practice of Reiki on themselves and others.  He teaches with kindness and caring for each student, making them feel welcome and capable.  For me, the Reiki 3 Master Class underscored what I already knew about Reiki and enabled me to embrace my inner capability to help myself and others.  Thank you, Stephen, and keep teaching!  Gail Huddleston RMT – Grand Junction, Colorado.

Testimonial: Stephen has outdone himself once again!  In the beginning, I wasn’t quite sure I was ready to become a Reiki Master Teacher.  However, one of Stephen’s many gifts as a person and teacher is his ability to “connect”.  His warmth and understanding soon put me at ease, and once again he opened my mind and heart.  I learned so much, but here are two highlights:  From Quantum Physics, I continued to learn more and more about the energy I experience for myself, and also the best ways for me (personally) to channel that energy as a practitioner.  And from balancing the 7 elements of essence, I am at last beginning to identify with the “eternal me” that inspires my continuing spiritual growth and oneness with all that is. 

Thank you Stephen for all the empowerments I am still receiving as a Reiki Master Teacher!  I can now go on to build on these gifts by reaching out to others seeking physical and spiritual healing. Marcia Van Vleet, RMT – Spokane, Washington.

Testimonial: I found the Reiki Master Teacher Class to be incredibly helpful and powerful. We are going through a massive global shift and it has been quite challenging for me during these last few months to find the motivation to practice Reiki. 

I received a reiki “buzz” the first day of the master class and it felt like I was coming home again.  I experienced intensity, learned the depth of empowerment, saw the energy being balanced with my own eyes, triggers released, and I gained a certain level of confidence that was missing.  

I am so very thankful for the support I received from Stephen and the other students.  This master class was a reminder of who I am, why I am here and where I need to go.  There are infinite possibilities and now is the time to take these skills and abilities that I have learned to the next level!  Stacy I. Perkins, RMT – Austin, Colorado.

Testimonial: I was surfing the net trying to figure out what alternative healing therapy I should get trained in.  I came across Reiki Certification classes with Stephen Bruno in Cedaredge, Colorado.  That’s when I felt the calling I had been asking seriously for in previous months.  I respect the spiritual and quantum physics approach that Stephen brings to his classes. He taught them in a very thorough manner that was relatable and easy enough for me to understand.  Also, I find value and took note of the language and key terms Stephen used.  I feel confident and proud of having learned the Usui Reiki way.  I’m looking forward to the Master class in May 2020!  In gratitude. Stacy I. Perkins, Reiki Practitioner – Austin, Colorado.

Testimonial: Quality! Stephen Bruno has developed a high-quality course in reiki! He is a gifted teacher. His ability to adapt his communication to reach each student is a marvel on its own. Stephen’s knowledge of reiki has a depth that can only be reached by focused experience across broad time. While he, himself does not fully embrace the word “Master”, he is a true real-life “Reiki Master”. I am full of gratitude, and humility that I was privileged to learn reiki from Stephen Bruno. He gave me wings to fly!!! My life has forever changed because I took this course. Already I’ve been able to treat family, and friends with reiki, and they had energetic experiences that changed their lives as well……and that’s what it’s all about!!   Many Thanks to Stephen Bruno.  Timothy W Tucker, Reiki Practitioner – Cedaredge, Colorado.

Testimonial: It was a very enlightening weekend from so many different angles.  Thank you for imparting some of your experiences and wisdom upon us and for being such a gracious host and a wonderful teacher!  I have been burying myself in the books and am so full of gratitude for all you did to guide us and help us embark upon our journey.  Thank you, once again, for all of the wonderful gifts.  They all have a very special meaning, and I’m finding myself using every single one of them thus far.  Karen Townsend, Reiki Practitioner – Castle Pines, Colorado.

Testimonial: I took Stephen Bruno’s Reiki level 1 and level 2 classes.  I was a little nervous at first but Stephen welcomed us into his home and made us feel comfortable. He told us that he tailors each class to the individual needs of the students. He took his time explaining things and answering our questions. We were given hands-on practice time.  Throughout the two days, I began feeling the empowerments of the Reiki energy get stronger and stronger. I began using the Reiki right away and it works! All I have to do is think about Reiki now and my hands start buzzing. I highly recommend Stephen Bruno as a Reiki instructor. I look forward to taking Reiki 3 in the future.  Debra Rayas, Reiki Practitioner – Delta, Colorado.

Testimonial: Wow!  The personal growth I am experiencing as a result of the Reiki I/II training is profound.  Stephen Bruno is an incredible teacher and has such a wonderful spirit.  He made sure we had all of our questions answered and was very patient throughout the sessions.  I recommend this training to anyone and everyone.  I am so grateful for this gift I’ve received.  Lisa Reed-Scott, Reiki Practitioner – Rifle, Colorado.

Testimonial: Stephen Bruno’s reiki class was uniquely tailored for my partner and I. He formulated the information, technique and practice to fit our authentic selves, as reiki practitioners as well as people in society.

Stephen taught me another perspective and outlook to performing reiki. He teaches Usui’s original techniques and also shares about his own healing techniques and experiences as well, while not limiting us in creating our own authentic practice. His explanation and instruction in finding and using our essence to connect with ourselves and others is a pure route to the art of healing.

I am satisfied and inspired by this reiki course. I would highly recommend to new and experienced reiki practitioners. Thank you Stephen for your valuable wisdom, testimonies and unique outlook on healing. Kelley, Reiki Practitioner – Grand Junction, Colorado.

Testimonial: I want to thank you for a wonderful weekend!  Even though I was certified to practice Reiki many years ago, I learned so many new approaches and techniques at your Reiki I & II class.  The work we did on essence (ourselves as well as connecting with others) was spiritually moving and enlightening.  You are an amazing teacher!  I am looking forward to seeing you in the spring for Reiki III! Marcia Van Vleet, Reiki Practitioner – Washington.

Testimonial: Stephen has been my Reiki Master Teacher since 2010, and he’s the greatest spiritual mentor I have ever known. He’s a born psychic, shaman and a life coach with mind-expanding energy knowledge and capability. He’s the real deal and the best in the business. Because of Stephen, I’ve been a successful Reiki Master Teacher with a thriving practice, offering healing sessions worldwide along with Certified Usui Reiki class of all levels. You will learn far more in his class than you will in any other class. He includes much more magic and additional instruction than can be found anywhere. Do yourself a favor and connect with Stephen. He will change your life forever, open your mind, and align you to your higher purpose and passion as you develop as a healer and more… oh so much more! In deep respect, Shana. Shana Dean, RMT – Santa Rosa, California.

Testimonial: I attended a two day Reiki Certification Class with instructor Stephen Bruno on January 26 and 27 of this year.  It was an instructive, intensive and fulfilling experience.  The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, and Stephen is very calm, understanding, and thorough with his students.  I would certainly recommend his class to anyone interested in the healing energy of Reiki for themselves as well as using it to help others, it is truly worthwhile.  Gail Huddleston, Reiki Practitioner – Grand Junction, Colorado.

Testimonial: Stephen was very warm and welcoming.  He made me feel comfortable from the beginning of the class.  He is a very gifted individual, and I felt very confident in his Reiki experience.  Also, I feel that his wealth of experience outside the realm of Reiki (life experiences, counseling, life coaching, wildlife photography, etc.) was incredibly beneficial and made the class that much more profound.  I thoroughly enjoyed our time together, and I am so excited to continue to grow as a Reiki practitioner!  Amanda (Mandy) Mayfield, Reiki Practitioner – Cedaredge, Colorado.

Testimonial: I have certainly enjoyed my time taking this class with Stephen. I went in with expectations and he blew them away. His classes are very thorough. And at the same time, they are both fun and exciting. I feel more than prepared to begin my journey as a Reiki Master and Teacher. I would recommend anyone who is interested in learning Reiki to Stephen. I am glad to say that the time was filled with some very memorable moments and I’m glad that I received the tools to allow myself to pass on Stephens wisdom. Thanks Again! Shawn Coslett, RMT – Grand Junction, Colorado

Testimonial: I wanted to learn Reiki to improve my health both physical and mental. What I learned was so much more. Stephen is one of the most intelligent, humble, compassionate human beings that I know. I can honestly say that Reiki is changing my life for the better. I’m realizing that we have much more power to heal ourselves than I ever believed. Stephen teaches much more than Reiki, he shares the wisdom that we all need to live out our potential. If you want to learn Reiki from both a spiritual and scientific perspective, then I’d recommend this course. Earon Beesley Maneotis, RMT – Grand Junction, Colorado

Testimonial: I am so blessed to have found Stephen Bruno as a Reiki teacher. His presence shines a calming peace and healing light that is comforting to all who meet him. Stephen embodies the highest ideals of Reiki by living unlimited compassion in each moment. Thank you, Stephen, for an amazing experience, lifelong change, and your generous gifts! Elizabeth Hazen, RMT – Grand Junction, Colorado

Testimonial: I really enjoyed my time spent learning Reiki I and II from Stephen. Coming to the class I was familiar with energy work but not with how Reiki was performed. The applications were useful and they’ve proved to be effective for me. Stephen was a great teacher; All my questions were answered and the methods and techniques were thoroughly explained. The class really was enjoyable. It was filled with eye-opening stories and unforgettable hands-on experiences. I will be attending Stephens next Reiki Master Teacher class.  Shawn Coslett, RMT – Grand Junction, Colorado

Testimonial: Something for everyone! During the years of 1999 through 2001, I was fortunate enough to have taken all three levels of Usui Reiki Certification from Stephen Bruno. I have been a Reiki Master Teacher since then and practice Reiki daily for myself and others and have been teaching since the mid-2000’s.

These classes and Stephen’s commitment to really being there for all of us are life changers. He is a deeply compassionate, down to earth and enlightened Reiki Master Teacher. He has many years of experience and is able to make each person in his class feel welcomed, safe, heard and seen.

We all come to a class with our own needs and levels of comprehension and experience. In Stephen’s classes, I always felt valued for who I am. Whatever my level of experience and knowledge, he was right there with me. He gives the highest quality of presence and interaction between himself and the students and helps to create wonderful bonds between the students themselves.

His commitment and light-hearted approach help to form a warm and nurturing classroom environment that’s conducive to learning and experiencing something really special. The signs of a brilliant teacher are that they connect with each student and teaches in a way that facilitates the highest level of learning for every individual. Stephen does exactly this on many levels so that we walk away with expanding awareness and evolving experiences. I highly recommend him and his Reiki Certification Classes.  Giacinta Vosika, LMT, RMT – Richmond Beach, Washington.

Testimonial: I just completed Stephen Bruno’s Reiki Master Teacher Class.
I was in awe of the wisdom, unconditional compassion, love and intuitiveness of Stephen, himself. Stephen has a “Prophet Presence” and a compelling, witty way of teaching that keeps you wanting more information.

He is an awesome teacher sharing all the things a student needs to hear, absorb and learn about Reiki. You will stop, look, listen and you will grow and not be bored.
He is very committed to guiding you in all the techniques of Reiki and how it should be taught and used. 

It is an enlighten awakening experience. I am more confident now and consciously and spiritually inspired to be a positive nurturing example of what he taught me. Reiki Blessings Stephen. Clarence O’Neil, RMT – Tucson, Arizona.

Testimonial: I went into Stephen Bruno’s Reiki Master Teacher Class to be re-certified by a different teacher. I had had spiritual and business coaching from Stephen a few years back where I had a good sense of who he was and what he was about. I had taught a class previously with a good foundation but felt like something was missing. I wasn’t sure what. Being a part of Stephen’s two-day class, showed me what was missing. I have re-committed to teaching Reiki as well as being a practitioner. I know I will go forth more confident and with a deeper understanding of what being a Reiki Teacher is. It is serving others and assisting them in connecting with that special part of them that is their reason for being here, it is about enlightenment. Stephen is the embodiment of what it means to be a great teacher. Totally committed to you succeeding in your Reiki practice AS WELL as teaching. Thank you, Stephen. I appreciate your gifts. Dawn Vierra, RMT – Cornville, Arizona.

Testimonial: I had the privilege of taking Reiki I & II from Stephen Bruno.  I had taken it 3 other times elsewhere and I will say that it prepped me for his class! Not only did I learn the symbols this time, but I really got the spiritual side of how energy truly works, and because of that, I became a more spiritually responsible person.   

I had the privilege of taking Reiki III from Stephen Bruno.  What an awaking that was! I had no idea that the attunements from Reiki III could possibly do what they did! The long-distance Reiki and new master symbols are far more potent than Reiki I & II symbols and attunements, although very necessary as a prelim to Reiki III. I was content with Reiki I & II very much.   

As a result of Reiki III class and attunements, I have worked less and have gotten more powerful results! The gifts that Stephen gives to you during the attunements are far more than one could ever imagine.   I see daily differences and changes in my loved ones because of the gifts he has so generously given to me.   

I no longer feel helpless, and I use these gifts wherever I go. I have committed to sending long distance to family and friends 3 x’s a day because I know that it helps. I now have the ability to keep a sister of mine out of pain all day long, and I do, as the Reiki does its job. I have loved ones that are emotionally imbalanced, and I send help as much as possible.   

What a blessing Stephen has been and if you are fortunate enough to find him, you have hit the Spiritual Jackpot!    Thank you, Stephen Bruno, for all that you have done for me, my family, friends and all of the other people that I am able to help because of you!  Jana Valenzano RMT. –  Prescott, Arizona.

Testimonial:  I have received Reiki from other people and also attended Stephen’s Reiki classes. I agree with Jana. I think Stephen is the ideal Reiki teacher, especially for those who wish to become Reiki teachers themselves. Stephen’s teacher preparation is far above and beyond the normal preparation so that you can really expect to teach well and confidently. Patrick Moore, LMT, RMT – Tucson, Arizona.

Testimonial: Hi, everyone. My name is Cheryl. I took Stephen’s Reiki 1 & 2 and Master Teacher certification classes. I am AMAZED at the changes in me and the benefits of the class. My vibrational energy is much higher. It is easier to maintain a positive attitude towards people, and every day challenges. Stephen has passed on to me the ability to help friends, family, pets, anyone, anything, anytime, anywhere. It is so empowering. Another result is my home feels more peaceful. My husband and I are so thankful to Stephen for his compassion and generosity.

If you are interested in learning Reiki, do yourself a favor, take Stephens, class. He is a fabulous teacher and lots of fun. Are you being led to explore Reiki? I encourage you, do yourself a favor, take Stephens classes. Stephen is an AWESOME teacher and human being. His classes are unique, compassionate and extremely informative. I have had the honor of taking all my Reiki classes with him. He has a knack for explaining complex concepts with simplicity.

There are no words that can express my gratitude for how Stephen has helped me. I have come a long way with his encouragement. I remember sitting on my front steps crying out to the universe for help, to now being a Reiki Master Teacher. THANK YOU, STEPHEN. Cheryl Sourdif, RMT – Rimrock, Arizona.

Testimonial: Stephen Bruno is a gifted teacher and guide.  He has devoted his life to the service of others, and brings such a wealth of experience, compassion, and knowledge to his class.  He is able to give each student a unique understanding, not only of Reiki but of their own strengths and abilities.  As a veteran of two previous Reiki Level, I and II classes I can say that Stephen’s approach is all-encompassing and surpasses all of my previous experiences.  He is dedicated to your learning and your practice beyond the class.  If you are considering Reiki, I recommend Stephen without reservation.
