    As an experienced practitioner in Animal Reiki, I was truly impressed with Kathleen’s book, Reiki for Dogs. Not only does Kathleen clearly show the heart to heart connection she makes with the dogs she encounters, she also connects with the soul of the reader. Her wisdom and compassion make this book a valuable tool for the novice and experienced energy worker, as well as those with no Reiki experience at all. The numerous techniques explained in Kathleen’s book are clearly presented and make you want to try them immediately. Applying Kathleen’s techniques and lessons will inspire you to expand your desire to help ALL animals in their healing process. The methods explained in Reiki for Dogs, will not only help you offer healing to the animals you love, but they will also give you the background and opportunity to help you heal yourself.

    I loved this book, in a large part because it combines the two m

    I loved this book, in a large part because it combines the two major influences in my own Reiki practice, Japanese Reiki as taught by Frans & Bronwen Steine of the International House of Reiki, and Animal Reiki as taught by Kathleen Prasad. For me it doesn’t get better than this, it’s best of both worlds, my idea of the ideal Reiki book.

    "Reiki for Dogs" is well organized and easy to read with short chapters addressing one or two main ideas so that the information is arranged into manageable chunks. Kathleen’s conversational style makes explanations and concepts approachable and understandable. The first two parts of the book are about Reiki basics and adapting Reiki treatments for dogs. Part 3 goes over the five Golden Rules to keep in mind when offering Reiki to dogs. Part 4 touches on life lessons we humans learn from sharing Reiki with dogs. Chapters and parts are opened with quotes from various sources which invite contemplation on spirit and connection, the essence of Reiki, healing, and Being. Interspersed throughout the book are “Try This” exercises, tips, and meditations, any one of which would greatly enhance and enrich anyone’s Reiki practice whether for animals or humans, and many of which can be used even if you have not yet learned Reiki. Case studies bring realization of the range of possibilities for Reiki healings. Lastly, although this book focuses on dogs it’s not just for dogs! Much of it would be applicable to sharing Reiki with any animal.

    This book also takes you step by step through a “typical” Reiki treatment with a dog (with photos!) as well as explaining what happens when you give a Reiki treatment to an animal, basic information which I have often wished for in other Reiki books. "Reiki for Dogs" highlights ways in which Reiki treatments for dogs (and other animals) can differ radically from people Reiki, particularly in the areas of empowering the dog with the choice to accept Reiki or not, and questioning the efficacy of the rigid use of set hand positions and/or hands-on treatments. Essential to a successful treatment for dogs is the realization of the difference between how humans and animals sense and understand energy. This book is a valuable resource for exploring this difference and adapting Reiki treatments accordingly.

    Lastly Kathleen’s open and personal sharing of incredible and intense experiences with Reiki and dogs deeply touched me. It has not been a year since my last dog transitioned. I originally learned Reiki to help her heal from the loss of my older dog. Little did I know how much it would change and heal me as well. I learned Reiki from teachers (including Kathleen) who have used Reiki to hospice and transition many dogs and now I have been blessed to be able to do the same for my last dog. I cried all the way through the Healing in Transitions chapter (as well as the first three pages of the book!) because I profoundly recognize the emotion, wisdom, and connection in Kathleen’s experience with Dakota’s passing. I too have come full circle only to realize the journey never ends, nor do I want it to end. I am patiently waiting for Reiki to help me meet my next dog when the time is right, and I have no doubt Reiki will work for the best.
