Reiki is an ancient and profoundly simple system of "laying on of hands" healing derived from Tibetan Buddhism. In the West, Reiki has been kept highly secret for many years. ESSENTIAL REIKI presents full information on all three degrees of this healing system, most of it in print for the first time. Teaching from the perspective that Reiki healing belongs to all people, Diane Stein breaks new ground in her classic guide to this ancient practice. While no book can replace the directly received Reiki "attunements," ESSENTIAL REIKI provides everything else that the healer, practitioner, and teacher of this system needs.

This book is great. It has a feminist, wiccan flavor, so for those that might be distracted by that, take note that the Reiki information is among the most accurate out there. Read full review

THE AUTHOR SCOOP

Read any good books lately?
My favorite reading is science fiction, there are new good books coming out every day.  Look at Sharon Shinn, Tamora Pierce, Ann Bishop, and so many more talented women fiction writers.

If you had to boil your book's message down to one sentence, what would it be?
Serve the Light, trust the Light, make a difference in the world with who you are and what you do.

What are you working on now?
I prefer to keep future books a secret until they are finished.  No one will know until the manuscript is mailed in.

Do you eat your vegetables?
I have been a vegetarian since 1983.  I do eat my vegetables.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?
Wonder Woman, of course.

How long did it take you to write this book? 
I have been working with herbs for over 35 years, so you could say it took that long to write it.
