James is AMAZING!!!!! I felt instantly at ease the moment I walked in with his warm and calming energy. My mind was fully cleared and I felt completely de-stressed at the close of the session. I highly recommend him and his talents to anyone looking for balance and focus in their lives. Will definitely be returning again and again :)

"LIFE CHANGING" is all that comes to mind when I recall my first session with at Bene Mudra with James!  Through his gentle, yet expertly trained hands, I experienced instant relief from the anxiety and stress I would feel on a daily basis.  Since this initial session and with our ongoing appointments, I am now finally able to reconnect with my natural state of relaxation, contentment and appreciation for life!  I have James and his service to thank.  He goes above and beyond to not only tailor my sessions to my needs each time, but he offers me counsel and intuitive messages that come during our sessions!  I've always considered Bene Mudra to be one of the best kept secrets, but word is getting out and after one session with James, you'll see why too! He's the real deal and I can't praise him and his services enough! p.s. he offers very cool workshops like reiki training and events like monthly psychic circles that I've attended!!! Very cool!

James is a true healer!  He has an intuitive sense and healing touch that empowers you.  He is compassionate and nurturing and also helps you to get out of your own way.  I have had many sessions of Reiki with multiple practitioners that were highly recommended.  They can't hold a flame to the beauty and essence of James.  He is very professional and highly respected in our community!

WOW what an experience!!!

James Bene is truly one of the most gifted, gentle and giving healer I have ever had the pleasure of working with (And I have been to quite a few Reiki Masters, healer etc;) - at his hands you feel like you have transcended to another realm where everything is so much clearer and calmer and you can really tend to problems and find solutions. It's like a vitamin shot for the soul - it's very addicting, you start craving that peacefulness after a while :) 

I would highly recommend James to anyone who is looking to go inside and live a better, more conscious life.

I got registered for the REIKI I AND REIKI II classes and last weekend I attended the REIKI I class... Needless to say, I fell in love with the ambiance... the room was so tastefully decorated, the light coming into the room was perfect, and the mirrors on the walls reflected the light coming from inside. The space was immaculately clean, and there was no noise coming from the outside world. There was peace and quiet and very good energy in the room. Myra and James are excellent instructors. Myra has so much passion for REIKI, and her passion was contagious. James knows so much about the CHAKRAS, and I was so hungry for this knowledge! I kept asking him so many questions, and he was so patient with my thirst of knowledge. He answered all my questions, and I cannot wait for the next sessions for REIKI II! (JAMES AND MYRA: GET READY FOR MORE AND MORE QUESTIONS!). He surprised us with organic fruits, raisins and nuts from TRADER JOE's... I am not sure how he knew I am a nut about fruits and nuts. He was supportive, patient, knowledgeable. He had a chance to practice what we had learned, and after the sessions, the feelings were pure relaxation, calmness and peace. I became more self aware of my own body, mind and soul. Myra gave us our certificates at the end of the class. I will definetely go back to BENMUDRA and I am waiting to see what's good and new very soon! I love the classes and I would like to know more about how to become a REIKI MASTER! Thank you very much for an unforgetable weekend! This is one weekend I will nevere forget!

I met James at an event in Los Angeles and was blown away by his warmth and natural abilities. I soon after booked a private session with him for reiki and intuitive guidance and again, was blown away! I was not expecting what I received...it was even better. The experience was similar to therapy but with a deep spiritual twist! Guides came though as well as a grandparent! So crazy! I love James and would recommend him to anyone in the Los Angeles area seeking spiritual guidance, healing or a reading! He is the real deal!

I started going to James after my miscarriage and 2 failed IVF cycles. I was searching for help to heal and the wisdom to be able to move forward. James not only taught me the power of meditation and positive affirmations but how important it is to open yourself up in order for new life to come in. He's easy to talk to and share your most sacred feelings. His technique and style is calm and graceful. If anyone is looking to better themselves or to learn how to really heal in order to move forward, James is the answer. I feel blessed that I have him to help me along my journey.

James and his Reiki practice has changed my life forever. James is truly a master in his work, and he has been blessed with the very real gift of intuition, which only enhances the healing session, as he is able to zero in on the problem areas without you telling him! Always having been a very high strung person who worried about everything, over time Reiki has transformed me into a calm, peaceful, life loving person. I can now accept, forgive, and love with every fiber in my being - and I have new found confidence in myself. The transformation even had my mother and close friends telling me they noticed I was different! After seeing the amazing results as a client, I then decided to take classes with James to learn more about what Reiki was all about. Once again, James did not disappoint. I feel very lucky to have him as my Reiki master - he's so knowledgeable and eager to share his learnings! I can honestly say that seeing James as both a client and student are the best decisions I've ever made in my life. Bold statement, but it's true - and I'm never looking back!

I was curious. I knew I wasn't completely happy with my current situation. I felt stuck. I didn't have the courage to take the first step to change. James opened the door with a happy yet calming energy and somehow I knew this would be the answer. The room was bright and the air had a sweet scent of incense. I instantly felt safe and found myself talking with an open mind and open heart to a person I had just met. Receiving messages from loved ones who had passed felt amazing and reassuring. The Reiki portion of the session started with James guiding me into a deep meditative state. I think our first session was over 2 1/2 hours and worth every penny. I felt amazing and couldn't wait until I could see him again. I have also taken meditation and intuition classes with James and recently completed my level 2 Reiki certification. James is an amazing teacher. I'm so glad I was curious and took that first step to book an appointment with him. I have grown mentally, emotionally and spiritually in the last year and I do owe it all to James.
