Since beginning my journey into Reiki, I have come to realize that although the actual act of doing Reiki is easy (anyone can do it), that if you really want to delve into the practice you have to go searching for answers. Along the way, I have come across a number of very good resources and have developed some favorite authors, persons who I expect quality research that informs me about various Reiki subjects while also presenting their information in a way that will actually help me grow as a ...more

This is one of O Books best-selling titles, and has been in print since 2003, although it was updated in 2009.

It is a great source of Reiki information, has some fabulous techniques to use on yourself or others. It is grounded in the traditional Usui, but gives space and explanation of the many branches that have developed along the way.

The authors Bronwen and Frans Stiene, are very active with their teachings around the world. Their website is a lively mix of workshop information and general re

I remember when I first started the journey of understanding - understanding of what Reiki really is. I've been trained in the art of Western Reiki. Still, while my teacher implemented some New Age techniques into his classes, he taught the real history of Reiki from a Buddhist perspective. Yet for me, it was not enough. Years later, through reading and learning, I learned about traditional techniques and greater understanding behind Reiki.

And recently, I've read over "The Reiki Sourcebook" - my

This is without doubt the best Reiki book I have ever read. It is the most comprehensive guide to Reiki you will find and the beauty of it is that is covers Reiki in its pure and original form without all the add-ons of "New Age" that have accumulated since Reiki came to the West. If you are a serious student of Reiki this book is a must have. This book was recommended to me by masters of many years' experience, one who was trained in Japan as a young child. He was in his fifties when he recomme ...more

Recommends it for: Everyone
The release of the Reiki Sourcebook by Bronwen and Frans Stiene marks a pivotal point in Reiki history. Knowledge and techniques contained in the Reiki Sourcebook were previously available only to those who could afford the time and expense to travel to a weekend seminar -- and only then to become overwhelmed with information in such a short period of time.

Bronwen and Frans present Reiki from the Japanese perspective, a perspective significantly different from its former presentation in the Wes

I am really grateful for all the time and research that the authors put into this book. I appreciated learning about the history of Reiki and its founder, Mikao Usui, from what facts we know and can verify; this made me realize that some of the information passed down to me through my Western lineage was not correct. It was interesting to find out what is known about Reiki in its original form before it was taught outside of Japan, contrasted with the many branches and forms of Reiki that are no ...more

This is a complete and comprehensive book concerning the Japanese art of the Reiki system. The authors have personally searched and asked well notable Japanese Reiki teachers in order to write something valuable. The history section, the customs of Japan are very well written for a serious practitioner. This book also contains with little description the most well known japanese and western Reiki techniques from various styles/schools. This book will inform and make the practitioner wonder himse ...more

This book contains everything you need to know about Reiki: The culture it came from, it's history from Usui to now, traditional and non-traditional techniques (a section I am definitely going back to), professionalism. I highly recommend it for any Reiki practitioner.
