Overview

The definitive text on Reiki-for students, practitioners, and Masters alike-from one of the most respected Reiki teachers today.

Reiki is a holistic system for balancing, healing, and harmonizing all aspects of the person-body, mind, emotions, and spirit-encouraging deep relaxation and the release of stress and tension, and promoting awareness and spiritual growth. This comprehensive manual provides much-needed support for students and teachers who want to follow the best practices.

Covering Reiki levels 1, 2, and 3, this book conveys information in an accessible, structured, and interactive way to enhance the reader's understanding, knowledge, and experience of the practice. The final section of the manual contains reference material specifically for students who wish to become professional practitioners, and for Masters who want to broaden their training. This section also offers the foundation for additional courses or workshops on topics such as health and safety and managing a successful practice.

The Reiki Manual can be used:

  • as student preparation before a Reiki class;
  • as a textbook during Reiki courses;
  • as post-course reading, or for reviewing what has already been learned (it includes revision questions and revision activities);
  • by Reiki practitioners to help them practice in the best, most professional way;
  • and by Reiki Masters as a guide to devise and deliver a Reiki course.

    More extensive than any other Reiki book on the market, The Reiki Manual will be referred to by lay readers as well as devoted students for many years to come!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Reiki is the gentle, systematic channeling of universal healing energy developed in early 20th-century Japan by Mikao Usui and brought to the West by Hawayo Takata. Since Takata's death in 1980, Reiki has significantly grown in worldwide recognition and popularity, reconnected with its Japanese roots, and propagated a host of offshoot systems by various masters of the technique. Quest, who also wrote the authoritative Reiki for Life, objectively acknowledges and explains the conflicting lore and the various derivations while focusing on the core principles and technique fundamentals central to all Reiki practice. She succeeds in delivering a comprehensive and inspirational curriculum that codifies the teaching and practice of Reiki healing. VERDICT The logical presentation and richly detailed how-to content make this the ideal book for any reader interested in this form of alternative healing. From the Reiki master teacher all the way to the neophyte seeker—if you have only one Reiki book on the shelf, this should be it. An instant classic.—Janet Tapper, Univ. of Western States Lib., Portland, OR
