Reader Reviews:


From Amazon.com Reviewer: Kim Spensley
"Excellent Reiki book:
I have read quite a number of Reiki books and this one is hands down the best all-around Reiki book that I have come across. It answered every single question that I have on Reiki. What I liked about it the most was the lack of "my way" in this book. Several ways of achieving the same goal are offered here so you are free to find your own style or method. So much information is packed into this book. Yes, the 4 symbols are included here and also several non-traditional symbols, including Karuna. You will not get attuned with this book, a Reiki Master Teacher must do that, but this book will be extremely helpful before and after being attuned to Reiki energy.

From Amazon reviewer Lucy:
"This book is fabulous and a terrific resource for Reiki classes or for those who are interested
in learning about Reiki. It is clearly written and is easy to understand. It is filled with
information...I recommend it without reservation..."

From Amazon Reviewer C. Truelove:
"A great source of enlightenment and information!
Whether you have taken Reiki classes, received Reiki, or want to understand what Reiki
is...this is the book for you. Clear and exact information for the well versed and the novice. I
suggest this book for anyone with any desire to understand Reiki from the Root to the
Crown."

From C.A. in the UK:
"Just to let you know that I left your book with Mum last night as she's recently had knee
replacement surgery and has had some rough nights lately - I have been telling her for ages to
do Reiki but your book seemed to do the trick
. She phoned this morning to tell me she'd done it on herself last night and 'had a fantastic nights sleep'. So thanks"

From Reiki Master and Teacher K.L.:
"Hope you get a lot of people to buy it! I always talk about it in my classes."

From Reiki Master and Teacher L.A.:
"I have purchased and read your book cover to cover.....magnificant!!"

From Reiki Master and Teacher T.S.:
"I LOVE your Reiki for Dummies book. It is so informative and well researched. I have recommended it to all my students and I am thinking of using it
as a teaching manual in ART classes, if students don't already have it. The book is like an
encyclopedia of reiki information in all areas. But where encyclopedias are just information,
your book feels like Reiki energy; wise, loving, reverent and full of Goodness. I love the humor tucked in too."
