Practicing Reiki is not simply about healing others—it is also about healing yourself and growing spiritually. In Living the Reiki Way, Penelope Quest offers practical and spiritual guidance on how you can absorb Reiki principles into your everyday life. Adapted from Dr. Mikao Usui's original Reiki healing system, Penelope offers six key principles for us to live by:
—Live "in the now"
—Live without anger
—Live without worry
—Live with gratitude
—Live with kindness
—Work honestly and diligently
In Living the Reiki Way, she guides us through the meanings and implications of each principle—and explains how they can help us achieve long-term happiness and contentment.
