    Reiki for Dummies is a great referance tool!

    As a 7 year Reiki Practitioner and Reiki Master-Teacher I found this book to be perfect for students that needed less to read through. They were able to remember the information more quickly as it was an easier read then other Reiki manuals. I now use Reiki for Dummies as well as the traditional Reiki manuals for the Reiki classes I teach.

    As one who has been very intrigued by Reiki for quite some time,

    As one who has been very intrigued by Reiki for quite some time, I have read many books on this subject. Throughout all of my research I have found 2 books to be above the rest. Reiki for Dummies is Number One in my opinion. This is THE BEST most thorough book I have found on the subject and though I have yet to begin my reiki journey, this book has aided me in learning the facts and the benefits of this practice. The second book that I would reccomend is the Reiki source book. Link in the recommendations!
