Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Direct, succinct, and to the point, Quest (Self-Healing with Reiki: How To Create Wholeness, Harmony & Balance for Body, Mind & Spirit) delivers another well-done primer on the subject of Reiki, the gentle therapeutic touch healing technique. As with her other titles, which are devoid of anecdotes or overly personal revelations, her clear, articulate, and uncomplicated writing style prevails. The information unfolds logically, beginning at the beginning; she explains what Reiki is, how it works, how to use it for personal growth and healing, what learning the technique entails, and even how to create a Reiki healing practice. She does cover, though not too deeply, the philosophical and political nuances to the practice, such as potential religious conflicts (she asserts there are none), the myriad emergent Reiki subgroups (there are many and more every day), how these subgroups differentiate themselves (i.e., minor changes typically initiated by a charismatic teacher), and creative uses of Reiki for personal empowerment (e.g., energy focused on affirmations, etc.).

Verdict This title is clearly aimed at beginners to energy healing but has plenty for those that have already become attuned Reiki “channels.” At this point in time, Quest is truly the preeminent writer on the subject.—Janet Tapper, Univ. of Western States Lib., Portland, OR
