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. Taught from the perspective that Reiki healing belongs to all people, this book differs from anything else available on the subject. 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.
