About Diana Olander
Reiki Master Diana Olander is a Native of Argentina, who at the age of 16 met a Japanese Zen Monk (Master Ryotan Tokuda, born in 1938 in Hokkaido North of Japan). Master Tokuda taught her Shiatsu and other eastern healing techniques. She followed him to Sensei's Tokuda Monastery in the hilltops of Brazil. After her second level Reiki initiation she wanted to get more insight into the origins of Dr. Mikao Usui 's healing power, which is closely related to the Buddhist 'Lotus Sutra' teachings. With this idea in mind, she joined the Buddhist Teachings. And furthermore, she made up her mind to study Mahayana Buddhism deeply and vigorously under the direct supervision and spiritual guidance of the Rinpoches of the Himalayan region of Tibet and Nepal. Thereafter, at age 18 she renounced her aristocratic family life in Argentina, keeping in mind to devote her lifelong time along the noble cause of 'Service to man is Service to God'. For the past 20 years, she has traveled around the world, to teachers who have formed her to be able to work in a broad spectrum of modalities. She now lives in Arizona with her family and pets .
