Zen Shiatsu Chicago Faculty: Alice Whieldon

Zen Shiatsu Massage School In Chicago

Alice Whieldon


Alice worked closely with Kishi Akinobu until his death in 2012.  She was honoured to be the voice of Kishi in the dissemination of Sei-ki in which role she initiated and co-wrote the seminal book on the subject in collaboration with Kishi.  She has presented Sei-ki in workshops and written about it for almost 20 years.

Alice also practises the work of Charles Berner who developed the Enlightenment Intensive workshops (a fusion of Zen sesshin and western psychological methods) and Mind Clearing.  This, and her academic background in philosophy, theology and religious studies, enables her to place this work in a wider context and explain it in ways that help people bring Sei-ki more into their lives and work.  She is an experienced educator and teacher trainer and has worked for the Open University in London for two decades.  She is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in recognition of excellence in teaching and learning.
