5-0 out of 5 stars Great shape! Fast Shipping! Thank you!
Book was in great shape as noted. Thank you for the fast shipping as well!

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference guide
I recomend for all Reiki students. It is a excellent information book from Dr. Usui practices!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great historical perspectives
This is a translation of the majority of the handbook issued to members of the exclusive Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai in Japan. Petter as provided us with an excellent look into Usui-sensei's approach to healing, and this book is richly illustrated with the hand positions that were advocated by Usui Mikao. The initial sections of the book are absent from this edition. In order to obtain access, one may find them in Petter's Reiki- the Legacy of Dr. Usui.

Additionally, a handful of the original Japanese passages have been reprinted, including the original Reiki Principles, as well as the original inscription on Usui-sensei's memorial stone.

Petter also introduces some basic information relating to the Buddhist history of some of the practices that Usui may have used, as well as translation of the Heart Sutra. There is some commentary on Japanese Reiki techniques, although the bulk of this text contains a list of complaints and methods to treat them.

This is a wonderful addition to the Reiki library because of its historical significance. Reading what may be Usui's own words can deepen a practitioner's connection to the source of this vibrant tradition.

Product Description
Reiki is an ancient and profoundly simple system of “laying on of hands” healing derived from Tibetan Buddhism. In the West, Reiki has been kept highly secret for many years. ESSENTIAL REIKI presents full information on all three degrees of this healing system, most of it in print for the first time. Teaching from theperspective that Reiki healing belongs to all people, Diane Stein breaks new ground in her classic guide to this ancient practice. While no book can replace the directly received Reiki “attunements,” ESSENTIAL REIKI provides everything else that the healer, practitioner, and teacher of this system needs. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars good guide for Reiki
I've been a Reiki master for many years and I've passed many attunements.Though a bit sexist at times, this is the best manual that I've found.After I discovered it I started giving one to all of my students.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too feminist.
The feminist bias of Stein's work is not a question of pronouns, but rather vests in the various suggestions that men are problematic to train, needy to work with as clients, and liable to oppress female healers (which a goddess has now apparently promised will never happen again). It would not be amiss to observe that the Reiki healing energy comes to us through a man, who trained a woman as a key disciple! Neither men nor women may regard Reiki as their preserve. So may the gods preserve us from this unwarranted bias, in any author.

I personally believe that Ms. Stein probably has a personality/energy pattern that attracts some difficulties with men. That's all, no great mystery, no great shame. Just something for her to work through. Sei Hei Ki.

Energetic healing is for everyone, and all suggestions to the contrary are suspect.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Thorough and sticks to origin of Reiki
I think this is a very thorough and simple book for beginners and the experienced.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Reiki
This guide is progressive while giving due respect to traditional Reiki teachings. It is written from a female perspective, but I didn't find it too distracting. I now give this book to all my Reiki students.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK for what it is.
If you have nothing else, this book will do OK. I feel Diane's symbols are what she wants them to be, but other versions are closer to what Master/Teacher Dr. Usui taught. The best way to get your symbols are from your Master/Teacher during your teaching and attunement process.

If you weren't given symbols, this book is helpful. Some Reiki Masters in the 1980's did the attunments but did not give the symbols. Besides giving her version of the symbols, I found the book to be more about Diane Stein's journey into Reiki and less about Reiki it's self. Diane instructs how to give attunements in groups, ten to twenty at a time did not seem like a sacred tradition, but more like an assembly line. This is also her version of the attunement process. I thought she ventured into other area's at times and away from the subject of Reiki.

I struggled to get past all of the writers (Diane Stein) personal feelings and to learn about Reiki from this book. Almost every other Reiki book I have read was so much easier to follow, and when I used instructions by William Rand and Frank Petter, my Reiki was so much easier and more to the point, very strong and effective energy. There are Reiki masters out there that have went to Japan and studied the Usui Reiki. They are also continuing to study Reiki and find so many uses for Reiki energy. I enjoy Frank Petter and especially William Rand's writing and knowledge. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Book, But Not for Kindle
The positive reviews about the content pretty much say it all. What I would like to criticize is the Kindle edition.
If you want to get the most out of this book, do not read it on Kindle - there are parts of text missing, lots of typos, chapter headlines where they do not belong and captions for photos in the middle of text. It can be become very confusing and tedious reading this book on Kindle!

5-0 out of 5 stars Animal Reiki
The book was a gift and the person I gave the gift to was so excited to get ti they couldn't wait to read it . They heard so many wonderful things about this !!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars very informative
I purchased this book in preperation for getting my Reiki attunement.I plan to offer Reiki to people and animals both s othis book was great.The personal stories were great and I appreciated the authors point of view on the healing power of Reiki.

2-0 out of 5 stars Ok
The book was a bit informative but informs you that you need to take a Reiki class to really understand how to perform it. I was hoping to get more from the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Before and After
Before I discovered this book I knew I wanted to become an Animal Reiki Practitioner.After I read this book I became an Animal Reiki Practition.This book was so inspiring I would often find myself with moist eyes after reading some of the heart warming stories of healing.I learned many techniques for giving Reiki to animals and that prompted me to take some of Kathleen Prasad's classes.I now am actively giving Reiki to shelter animals helping them to recover from the trauma of finding themselves in a shelter environment, helping them to heal from abuse and helping to to deal with the stress of being in a shelter.Plus there isn't an animal in the neighborhood who hasn't learned to love Reiki.My life has changed for the better because I read this book. ...

Product Description
An illuminating guide to one of the fastest-growing spiritual healing practices in the world and an essential tool for anyone ready to bring healing into his or her life.

Perhaps the gentlest healing therapy in the world, Reiki originated in early twentieth-century Japan. In this indispensable guide to Reiki, one of the foremost experts traces the origin and development of the practice, detailing how and why it restores and renews the human body in ways we’ve only begun to understand.

A pioneer in bringing Reiki into mainstream medical practice, Miles draws on her unique background to explain how this therapeutic technique, which involves a gentle laying on of the hands, complements conventional medical treatments and can hasten recovery from invasive surgical procedures, as well as ease the symptoms of cancer, insomnia, depression, anxiety, and other conditions. With compassion, wisdom, and the accumulated experience that comes from nearly twenty years as a Reiki practitioner, Pamela Miles empowers readers by showing how simple it is to take. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a guide but an essay on Reiki
I atleast didn't buy it but got it from the library.Here I am flipping through the book looking for the actual instructions on how to do it and mostly it is just commentary on Reiki as a subject.Like a giant wikipedia article all about Reiki and the various modalities.So I turn to the chapter on 1st Degree Reiki Training thinking that this is where she will teach what to do (the How to's) but no, it is about 1st degree Reiki training and where to look for a teacher of it.Great!That is great, but not a comprehensive guide.Isn't a guide supposed to lead you into doing, not just reading about the many splendors of it.I wonder what book is an "actual" guide of Reiki because this book clearly is not.I don't want to consistently read about having to go to such and such class to receive my level 1 Reiki training.Why can't this book give me rudimentary instructions on how to focus my energy and perform reiki myself. When it comes to books about using your mind, they always give you ways to do it in home with just the book and your willing mind, and this I repeat doesn't.

If it weren't called a comprehensive guide I would have given it a much higher rating since it is well put together and really informs you about Reiki, but doesn't give you any need to know How to info, so what's the point.

4-0 out of 5 stars Book review
I haven't had a chance to read more than excerpts of the book, but I am liking the information.

Thanks for a great book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reiki by Pamela Miles
Pamela Miles is a leading expert on the history of Reiki being honest with the explanation of, through the lineage from Usui, how the many diversities were derived. This leaves me quite comfortable with my practice of Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki.

5-0 out of 5 stars Traditional
This book has a very traditional view on Reiki.For those of you that are considering being attuned via the internet, you may be somewhat disheartened by this book.I say, "buy it anyway".It is a very informative book and is written well.I personally believe that all people are capable of bringing energy into themselves, whether it be through Reiki, healing touch, qi gong and a host of other healing practices.I was attuned via the internet and I was extremely satisfied.I have experienced amazing results with Reiki with myself and many others.This book did an excellent job teaching me some of the important things I may have missed in a one-on-one experience.I appreciate this author's expertise and thoughts on Reiki and would recommend this book to all people seeking to learn energy healing.Terri Ward, children's author of One Starry Night and Aunt Tami's Strawberry Farm.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a "Hands On" guide.
I mistakenly purchased this book in hopes it would teach more about the actual technique of Reiki. A few pictures in the appendix are all that is included. An interesting read, I must admit, I knew nothing of Reiki before I read this book, but if you're looking for an at- home guide of the actual technique, this book is not for you. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Resource!
I am new to Reiki, having a million and one questions about the healing energy and how to use it.My main focus is helping animals with Reiki, but this book is a wonderful resource, filled with information that helps you understand Reiki, understand the attunements, and gives you lots of information about practicing Reiki.I enjoyed the additional uses information, such as giving Reiki to your plants, trees, appliances, and lots of other things.I plan on trying some of these additional uses along with practicing Reiki on myself and family and friends.If you are looking for a great resource, then get this book!You will not be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great wealth of information!
Wonderful book with so much wonderful information on how to really do a great job at Reiki for God and for your clients, friends, family, yourself.Well worth the money and really has a wonderful amount of great information that I found to be invaluable.I don't think anyone would be disappointed in this book but if they are then they don't want to do their best for Reiki and that is a shame and they shouldn't do Reiki under those circumstances.

5-0 out of 5 stars For ANYONE interersted in Reiki-A very good instructional guide
Penelope Quest's book is a very in depth and insightful book for anyone interested in not only learning about Reiki, but for those teachers that are interested in using an additional text to their own materials.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Reiki Book Ever!
This is the Reiki book you've been waiting for!It is really comprehensive, well written, easy to understand, and useful for anyone with an interest in Reiki, from beginners right up to Reiki Masters.It gives a good grounding in energy theory and the metaphysical causes of illness, plenty of basic information about how Reiki was discovered, how it has developed in the West and in Japan, and what the training involves at each level.However, its main strength is the way it explains how to use Reiki at each level, including all the hand positions and lots of advanced Second Degree techniques you won't find in any other book, plus creative uses for Reiki like enhancing your psychic ability and healing past lives. It includes some vital information about the need for energy cleansing and protection, plus many additional techniques from the Reiki traditions in Japan.Added to that, it emphasises the importance of spiritual development with Reiki, suggests how to manage Reiki sessions and set up as a professional Practitioner, advises on how to become a Reiki Master, and gives brief details of 28 different Reiki systems! It's an easy read, but an amazing resource that you'll want to go back to again and again - definitely the best Reiki book ever! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Encyclopedia version
While this book gives a good overview into Reiki, it's not particularly informative for someone who is seeking in-depth information on using the traditional Usui system.The pictures are lovely and it's well laid out, but it doesn't divulge any information you can't find anywhere on the Internet for free.This is a good book to introduce clients to Reiki, or to see if someone is interested in studying it.It's not a good resource if you are seeking deeper information on use or teaching of Usui Reiki.

Product Description
This book is the spiral edition of the manual.

The knowledge that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. The existence of this "life energy" has been verified by recent scientific experiments, and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process.

Reiki, a technique for stress reduction that also promotes healing, allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of "life energy." Reiki was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist, early in the 20th Century. Reiki is easy to learn. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radience that flows through you and surrounds you. It creates many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being. Many have reported miraculous results. Hospitals and doctors' offices are beginning to include it as part of their therapy, and this new edition describes several successful approaches now being used across the US to integrate Reiki into patient care.

This revised and expanded edition includes important new information on the theory and practice of Reiki, including the Japanese Reiki Techniques taught by Dr. Usui as well as the Hayashi healing guide. Also included are pictures of the Usui Memorial in Tokyo, and of Mt. Kurama where Reiki was rediscovered.

This book is a must for anyone wanting the latest information on Reiki. Its referenced history of Reiki contains the most detailed and verfiable information currently available. Written with inspiration, clarity and vitality, it captures the essence of Reiki and is an excellent introduction to the subject as well as a user-friendly manual for the experienced practitioner. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The real deal!
As a beginning Reiki enthusiast, I received my first attunement in April this year (2010). I had come across the term Reiki in a few spiritual healing manuals, and Intuition leaned heavily upon me to check it out. I found a lot of directionless talk about Reiki. Not until I came across Magick of Reiki did I have any clue what was "real" out there in Reiki cyberspace.

For me, Mr. Penczak drew parallels between Reiki and all other spiritual persuits. His main goal in this book is to illuminate what is Traditional Reiki from what is NOT "tradition". Also, and to my intellectual delight, he gave incredible depth to the symbols of Reiki, how to scribe each, and background info about each, which I could not find in any other Reiki tome (and I've purchased about 20). He clearly delineated between fact, fiction, and useful mythology. This work will be a permanent resource for me as I grow in my Reiki path.

Thanks to this book, I know symbols, how to use them, what is "authentic", and what is "additional". He also did a great job roping me into better understanding the world and power of Intention, well beyond any ability of Wayne Dyer or Deepak Chopra. They are good "faces" for this topic, but Christopher Penczak comes across as a true, humble Master.

And for that, Mr. Penczak, I thank you.

Christopher Penczak really has it going on.This young man is a wealth of information and very spiritual and wants to help everyone.He is an inspiration to me and many others.I loved this book as well as others of his and will continue to be a big fan and a very appreciative person for the wealth of information that Christopher continues to provide in all his wonderful and informative works.This book has it all and then some.It has helped me and my Reiki and brought both to a whole new spiritual level which has made me and my Reiki very special and more powerful.Can't say enough wonderful things about this young man and his wondeful books.Keep up the great work and I will continue to be a loyal fan and appreciative Reiki practitioner and look forward to your new works.Thank you so much for all you do to improve individuals and the Earth.Great job!!!

This is a FABULOUS book. The author is Wiccan and lets you know that early on but do not let that keep you away. He has a healthy appreciation for Reiki and is very knowledgable in so many ways. I felt this book to be "welcoming". As if he is glad to see you and share all of this with you. I really appreciated the discussions and comparisons to Wiccan and other rituals as well as the lists of other Reiki related groups and symbols that he and others received. I am just about to move to Reiki Master and also liked the discussion related to this. I have quite a few Reiki books and manuals at my fingertips and feel this to be in the top 2 for sure! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for All Reiki Practitioners
I really liked this book.I have it in my Reiki library along with other great Reiki books (by authors such as Amy Z. Rowland, etc.)It's an easy read and not "dummied-down" at all, in spite of the title of the book.Includes good drawings of basic hand positions for treatment of yourself and others.

Until recently, the fundamentals of Reiki healing could only be passed from Reiki master to student. In ESSENTIAL REIKI TEACHING MANUAL, Reiki master Diane Stein equips initiates with the tools to share this ancient healing art with others. Stein presents her comprehensive teaching method, encompassing all three levels of Reiki, and offers useful advice for practical issues that teachers face, such as setting up a practice, leading a workshop, and being an effective Reiki instructor. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Too feminist.
The feminist bias of Stein's work is not a question of pronouns, but rather vests in the various suggestions that men are problematic to train, needy to work with as clients, and liable to oppress female healers (which a goddess has now apparently promised will never happen again). It would not be amiss to observe that the Reiki healing energy comes to us through a man, who trained a woman as a key disciple! Neither men nor women may regard Reiki as their preserve. So may the gods preserve us from this unwarranted bias, in any author.

I personally believe that Ms. Stein probably has a personality/energy pattern that attracts some difficulties with men. That's all, no great mystery, no great shame. Just something for her to work through. Sei Hei Ki.

Energetic healing is for everyone, and all suggestions to the contrary are suspect.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK
This is a great resource for practitioners just getting into teaching Reiki.I have been a practitioner for 5 years and was recently asked to teach a class.I've purchased a few books to help me get started, but this book is the BEST.

5-0 out of 5 stars Purchased for Own Business
I purchased this book as a companion guide to the Essential Reiki book I received as a student of Reiki.I received my master reiki certification in 2006 and was ready to take on the world of teaching.Diane Stein has a straightforward approach and the book is a good beginning for forming class handouts and teaching a class.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best tool for Reiki Master Teachers
This book is an Essential tool for Reiki Master Teachers, so essential, in fact, that it is now included in the curriculum when I teach the second part of the Master level in Reiki IV.Diane Stein has incredible insight to follow and she adds her experiences of teaching and what kinds of questions come, etc...The material is so important.Monica F, RMT.

1-0 out of 5 stars Some good info and some very bad advice!
First of all let me say that in my humble opinion, publishing a "Reiki Teaching Manual" is fine if distributed to Reiki Level 3 Practitioners and above, but the general public just doesn't need to share in this information!!!Second, I find it very offensive that Diane Stein has chosen to exclude men from her teaching although that is certainly her personal right.Some of the best Reiki Masters and Practitioners that I know happen to be men.Last but not least, speaking as a Reiki Master Teacher, I FIND IT TO BEABSOLUTELY APPAULING THAT SHE TAKES HER STUDENTS ALL THE WAY FROM REIKI LEVEL 1 TO MASTER IN ONE WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN'T IMAGINE A MORE IRRESPONSIBLE WAY OF TEACHING REIKI!!!THIS IS A SPIRITUAL PROCESS AND JOURNEY THAT "TAKES TIME" AND ISN'T MEANT TO BE ACCOMPLISHED IN ONE FELL SWOOP DURING A WEEKEND SESSION, PERIOD!!! Sorry for the tirade, but I really have to question her motives and advise. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars the reiki source book revised and expanded
I'm delighted with this book. One of the jewels amongst the reiki information.
Bronwen & Frans have put a lot of work and effort into it.They truly share
their results, from this I think they're good teachers,and they write accordingly.
I would recommend this book, to anyone wanting to know about reiki, willing to
learn about reiki, and willing to do the work, to acquire personal knowledge and
their own experience of reiki. This is a good place to start.
There are a more jewels out there, but I hope this is of help.

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ!
A very comprehensive work on research into the many various types of Reiki.The reader/Reiki practitioner is given information to make the choice as to which Reiki path they will choose to increase their own spirituality while helping others on Life's journey.
Whatever path is chosen, the reader is encouraged to practice every day. When one helps others, they also help themselves.

Shamanic Reiki introduces techniques that healers and Reiki practitioners can draw on to tap ancient healing wisdom. Shamanism and Reiki are, by themselves, powerful ways to heal. Together, their power multiplies, and healing methods become available that aren't accessible if used separately. The purpose of Shamanic Reiki is to introduce you to concepts in both and provide you with detailed proven methods to enhance your own healing practices, or to work on yourselves. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Shamanic Reiki
This book has plenty of information.However, readers must understand Shamanic work, and Reiki, to be new to this energy, then proceed with some of the healings described could lead to problems for the practioner.In other words, this is ONLY for the advanced Shamanic/Reiki Practioner, not for a beginner.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book
This is a wonderful book, that beautifully blends Reiki and Shamanism.It has enhanced my Reiki practice and opened my eyes to the gifts of shamanism.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautifully simple
Anyone interested in Reiki should give this book a read. Wonderfully and simply written so that a beginner can understand it, yet lending itself extremely well to use by the seasoned practitioner as well. Reiki and Shamanism, Reiki and Huna - Reiki works and melds well with other disciplines. As one of the other reviewers stated, I was also surprised at how many points and curves of the Reiki practice are parallel and overlapping with Shamanism. Small wonder, however, when you realize that our healing modalities source at the same place. I thoroughly enjoyed the way Llyn Roberts and Robert Levy laid out and presented the information in this book, as well as their writing styles.I'll be re-reading this one several times.

4-0 out of 5 stars Well written and considerate
This book is great for anyone who already practices Reiki with clients. It explains the Shamanic way very clearly and gives a background on Reiki. Rather than go deeply into either practice, they recommend books on both Reiki or Shamanism if you need further information. The book then dedicates itself to techniques which bring both practices together. The book also gives some ideas for your practice, ways to hold space and ways to hold a client. It empowers the practitioner to try new things, and to share techniques with their client to allow them to become responsibile for their own healing. I would recommend it to anyone who may be stuck in their present way of working, or anyone who is looking for a greater connection with nature.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not Just Theories
This is a fantastic book. Very easy to read. The authors, after discussing the basics of both Shamanism and Reiki, offer suggestions for combining the practices, and making the healing sessions interactive,in a way that should be non threatening to most clients. (Especially if you do not tell them it is Shamanism). This is a very practical and enlightening book, bringing Shamanic practice into mainstream energywork.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
Before finding Steve I was a Reiki II Practitioner and spent $300 on that training.I was seriously considering paying the $500 to become a Reiki Master when I came upon Steve's DVD's on netflix.I am now a Reiki Master through Steve's Reiki Master DVD and have recently begun teaching Reiki Classes.It's been one of the most amazing experiences of my life.I have a master's degree in education and am a former schoolteacher and absolutely LOVE Steve's work and his simple, straightforward presentation style.My students love his books and the Dvd's provide excellent reinforcement in the classes I teach.As we move into the 21st Century I believe it's crucial to spread this work as far and as wide and as QUICKLY as we can. It's a shame if this amazing healing technique has been kept from anyone because of the cost of classes.Raising the consciousness of this planet should be everyone's priority and learning Reiki is one way we can effect a massive shift for many.My blessings go out to Steve for being a true maverick in this field and letting spirit lead him.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Steve Murray's approach to Reiki and healing is excellent.Steve believes that everyone can benefit from Reiki and his materials show you why. His books are easy to understand and excellent to keep on hand for reference and/or when you need a bit of a refresher.
He provides great information on not only the basics of Reiki, but also provides information that helps you really understand. He keeps it simple and real.
Steve Murray is a big part of my healing library.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Reiki "Must Have"
After being trained in the Usui system of Reiki and practicing it for about 7 years, Steve Murray has provided me with a fuller training experience. He has expanded the Usui oral tradition into the written word and beautiful video and audio experiences. The books represent most of my own feels and experiences of Reiki and then go well beyond that, to give me a much fuller learning experience. Steve's books, DVDs and audio CDs have filled the gap in my on going Reiki training. I highly recommend them.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nothing special...
When I saw such amazing reviews of this book, I felt it was necessary to check out. I borrowed this book from a local library... I was not impressed. Nothing in this book is special. You could find more advanced and complete techniques and teachings about the practice of Reiki by using Google. Steve Murray claims this is the "ultimate guide," but I could never recommend a book with such little substance. Get this book only if you want a surface level look at Reiki. It would be good to explain Reiki in general terms to someone who is new to the subject. If you want a real guide to the practice of Reiki, I would look elsewhere.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for general information
Informations in the book is clear and simple.
However if the author used japanese or chinese characters - let a linguist writes them.
Most of the secret symbols are simple japanese or chinese characters and if written by a linguist they must have a meaning - however written by somebody who doesn't read or write the language and just copied it from womewhere it looks really strange.

5-0 out of 5 stars Empowerment Through Reiki
If you are new to Reiki and looking for a good all-round book to bring you up to speed, then you'll want to pick up a copy of Empowerment through Reiki. This is probably the most complete yet easy to comprehend resource that I've seen. Many of the beginner or general books on Reiki try to make the process seem much more difficult or complex than it is. This leaves the reader intimidated and confused. This is probably the reason that many people take a first course with gusto and then forget the whole experience.

Empowerment through Reiki goes through all the basics of Reiki: the history, the precepts, the way Reiki works, what is taught at each Reiki level, and how Reiki can be used in everyday life. This book also goes into some detail about somewhat advanced techniques that can be used to make Reiki more effective and how Reiki can be used in conjunction with other forms of healing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Empowerment through Reiki
As a student of Reiki, and having taken Reiki I and Reiki II, I am preparing for Reiki III. Empowerment through Reiki is required reading.Now after reading it, I am surprised that someone hadn't recommended it to me before. Reiki is powerful stuff and so is this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Guide To Reiki & Healing Philosophy
This book is only about 150 pages, yet it manages to introduce the reader to many valuable areas of information and philosophy about Reiki healing.Usui's 5 principles are examined, as is the attunement process and the science of subtle energies.Complements to Reiki, such as color, sound, crystals, conscious breathing, acupressure, massage, and naturopathy are discussed.The author gives a balanced, realistic idea about what Reiki is and what it can do.There are useful body charts and diagrams, and recommendations for how to practice Reiki according to legalities of your area.My only cautions about this book are that it repeats the mythologized history of Usui's uncovering of Reiki, and that it implies there are no significant hazards of Reiki healing work, and does not guide the practitioner in remaining centered and consciously connected to the Reiki Source as a means of psychic protection.It is presumed that this just happens automatically, which is usually but not always the case.Other than that, I found this book to be a very enlightened approach to educating readers about Reiki.For a compact, affordable guide to Reiki this book is a great investment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reiki Clients Will Benefit from this Book
I am not a practitioner of Reiki but a client. As a client, I know that no book can ethically claim to be a "how to" book. Formal training is required. But if you are interested in receiving Reiki treatments, this book will help you feel even more relaxed about the process. Plus it gives wonderful background information for those who wish to pursue training in this area. I've glanced at several Reiki books and this is one of the best. So read, enjoy, and open up to the wonderful possibilities of Reiki!

5-0 out of 5 stars A great guide for Reiki
This book is very good for those people who want to know what is Reiki and its origins. Be aware though, that this book doesn't show how to apply a Reiki treatment since you have to receive the healing ability from ReikiMasters. Nevertheless, the information it carries is invaluable. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Heartfelt beginning to a movement of reclaiming Reiki's origins
This is a nice little book for anyone new to Reiki. Although informed by having lived in Japan, while teaching and researching Reiki, Petter most definitely has written a book about Western Reiki. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, and we should embrace our lineages for all the depth that they offer us.

This is a concise guide with some really great points and suggestions that it offers. I would love to see Petter write a larger, more in-depth Reiki guide; his writing comes from the heart, as does his love of Reiki.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reiki Fire
I teach Reiki and ONLY use books by William Rand and Frank Arjava Petter. They are the ONLY writers that teach traditional Reiki unblemished with Wiccan rhetoric like Diane Stein's garbage. Only trust Rand and Petter if you truly want to understand Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki and the beautiful eastern mysticism of Dr Mikao Usui's System of Healing

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!
This is just a great book.It has helped me understand the origins of Reiki and has enhanced my working knowledge of Reiki. The style is easy to read and is laced with humour.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for beginners and those experienced in Reiki
This is one of the best books on Reiki I have read. Some past reviewers have given negative reviews for reasons that are not true. Recent research has dispelled the traditional history Takata spread about Usui being a Christian and other myths. Frank Arjava Petter was one of the forerunners in seeking the true historical background behind Reiki. This book gives an authentic portrayal of Reiki, its history, and its healing capabilities. Useful techniques are given beyond the average Reiki book. While Reiki is not Qigong per say, it resembles it in many ways and indeed could be termed a "lazy man's Qigong" as the author states. This is one of the most real authors I have ever read on Reiki who says it like it is. He shows himself to be as human as the rest of us and ever striving in spiritual aspiration. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves Reiki and as a perfect supplement for those starting with this wonderful healing modality. Coming from a skeptic, Reiki does work and this book will add much richness to your Reiki experience. Wish I could give it more than five stars! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A library MUSTfor any healer or traveler between worlds
Compelling and informative, this book was one of my favorites by author Jim Pathfinder Ewing.I really like the way that questions about Reiki and the Shamanic way are dealt with in such an easy to understand manner: lots of plain talk and examples, no-nonsense descriptions and simple but effective strategies toward understanding and practicing these healing modalities.If you currently practice Reiki, you simply must add this to your library. If you're curious about healing in shamanic travels, this is your guidebook.

The author's decades of experience in Native ways, including shamanic travel and healing, are evident in every page.I found this particularly reassuring as I read some of the extraordinary firsthand experiences and descriptions of the shamanic dimensions. In addition, Jim give an unbelievable bibliography and glossary, both of which are worth the price of the book by themselves!I highly recommend it (can you tell?)

I like this book in particular because it gives you many ideas on how to use reiki. It has exercises from level 1 to level 3, this book is very useful for the level one. It teaches to treat your pets, plant, house, patients and yourself, this is very important, because you have to help yourself first to be able to help others.
Includes meditations for all levels that you can add to your daily routine!
Buy this book, you wont regret it!

2-0 out of 5 stars Too didactic
I was very disappointed in this book. I appreciate some of the ideas for ways to incorporate Reiki into everyday life, such as charging household appliances with Reiki or using Reiki to separate two glasses that are stuck together. For the most part, though, it seems the authors are determined to attach a lot of rules and technical instructions to the beautifully simple practice of Reiki.For those who are into a lot of ceremony or who rely on studious planning and precise execution to strengthen their own focus, the book might be a fun or even helpful addition to a Reiki library. But it seems almost insulting to Reiki to imply that all the extra attention makes Reiki better or changes the effect that it may have. If we intend for Reiki to go for the greatest good of the recipient, it will. It's that simple.

5-0 out of 5 stars it is a cool book in my opinion
i found this book cool, informative and what's more giving you ideas how to expand your reiki practice outside of the initial frame given with the initiations.

3-0 out of 5 stars If you are attracted to this book, buy it.
This book is an easy read.It is not a detailed instruction manual on Reiki, in fact it doesn't give too much information away at all.The book talks about what Reiki is and, what surprised me, is how much the practice is utilized in human medicine, hospice etc...I had no idea how main stream the practice has become.The book packed with anecdotal support for the healing benefits of Reiki.The contents are well organized and she makes her points quickly.I picked up the book because I was taking Libby Barnett's Reiki level 1 and 2 courses and wanted to familiarize myself with her and her book.If you need further convincing that Reiki has a place in human medicine and supportive care pick up this book. After taking her course I'll be using Reiki on my small animal patients.

Reiki is a form of Energy Medicine. The Japanese compound word Reiki means Universal Energy and is equivalent to the Chi of Chinese and the Prana of Indians. In this book, "Reiki Energy Medicine Bringing Healing Touch into Home, Hospital and Hospice", the authors Libby Barnett and Maggie Chambers, Reiki Masters, give us a number of areas where the Reiki healing touch can be applied with advantage. They give a good number of case studies and examples from their extensive health-related professional experience spread over years. Libby is a Medical Social Worker and Maggie is an artist who works with handicapped children. Both found Reiki to be useful in a number of situations. In collaboration with Susan Davidson, who helped the book to be edited into a highly readable account of Reiki, they succeed in getting the message through that Reiki as an adjunt to all other medical systems can improve the healing process effectively. Reiki is intelligent and it is the receipient who receives as much or as little as one needs and uses it for the highest good. Thus, it is not to be construed as a panacea, but it should be offered with unconditional love. I especially liked their comment that Reiki is not only Universal Energy but is also Universal / unconditional love. They also bring out an important point that Reiki should be welcomed by all other medical systems and the insurance firms since it doesn't interfere with their working and helps in bringing down the medicare costs.

The book gives a short introduction to Reiki but concentrates more on the applications of Reiki in the health field. The emphasis through out is on touch. The Appendices give the hand positions for self Reiki and for giving Reiki to others. The other aspects of Reiki which enable distance healing, programming etc., which do not involve touch have not been covered.

I recommend this book to all those who are interested in the use of Reiki in the health field.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn all you can about Reiki--this is an excellent start!
Reiki Energy Medicine is a motivator to learn Reiki, which is a Great thing because I can honestly say from my own personal experience, now that I have received attunement, that it WORKS.The authors write with the "Spirit" which just corroborates to me that Reiki is Holy and altogether Powerful.I am a Christian and love and celebrate Jesus every day of my life.Furthermore I have always been a woman of prayer.Reiki brings my faith full circle because it is tangible proof to my heart and soul that God's unconditional love can heal you if you will receive it. What is so awesome about Reiki is that it works regardless of your beliefs! No religious belief is required to receive Reiki healing.
One of the best things about Reiki that I learned from this book is that "The Reiki process hightlights the truth about healing: that the power and the responsibility for healing lie within the individual.The Reiki practitioner brings intention and commitment to the process, acting as a compassionate conduit for the universal life force, but the practitioner does not DO the healing for the client.The healing happens as a result of the relationship between the receiver's energy field and the universal energy field, mediated through the cellular consciousness of the receiver.Reiki enpowers the receiver to do the healing that needs to be done on all levels of being."
The chapters included are: 1 Universal Life Force: The Fundamental Principle of Health, 2 The Unique Power of Reiki, 3 Self-Reiki: Caring for the Caregiver, 4 A Progressive Approach to Wellness, 5 Visions for the Future: Reiki and the Partnership Model of Care.Also included are appendixes with diagrams for self treatment and treatment upon others.
Important note: You really need to look into this book but I would recommend getting an attunement first of which are available at amazon in the form of vhs and dvds.Then you can add to what you've already learned, thus fully enjoy and understand this book.The information here is NOT going to teach you Reiki if you first haven't been attuned.I give this book five stars because it mentions this fact in the text early on.
Closing quote: "Reiki meets us where we are and gently moves us forward, providing support for doing the work we were born to do.Reiki helps us know our purpose and manifest it with strength, vitality and ease.o8E
