Amy Yuki Vickers spent three years writing her memoir, Capturing Energy: My Life as a Reiki Master, while working as a Reiki practitioner at a mental health facility. She has been practicing Reiki for 10 years and has an MA in Integral Health from the California Institute for Human Science. She is currently working on fiction, essays, and a second memoir.
She has a BA in Drawing and Art History, a black belt in Tang Soo Do, and is a certified yoga instructor.
She has scaled cliffs, backpacked to the top of mountains, SCUBA’d to the bottom of things, done trapeze, studied ballet, hip-hop, salsa, and the tango, jumped out of an airplane solo, and worked at a dot-com during the Y2K scare and subsequent crash. None of those things were scarier than writing. She is currently living in Tokyo with her husband and three cats.
