J'ai personnellement été initiée au Reiki Shinpiden (Maître Reiki) par Frans Steine lui-même, auteur de ce livre et de plusieurs autres sur le sujet de renommées internationales.

Ce livre s'adresse à toute personne qui s'intéresse de façon sérieuse à la pratique du Reiki Usui dans son application au quotidien. Permet une meilleure compréhension du système de reiki et permet d'accéder à une pratique constante et évolutive qui apporte de véritables changements dans la vie d'une personne. Il ne remplace pas une Initiation `en personne' qui est nécessaire à toute pratique de Reiki.

Pour toute personne désireuse d'apprendre l'Art du Reiki Japonais au Québec en ligne avec les enseignements du maître Usui Mikao décrits dans ce livre et de poursuivre une solide pratique personnelle et/ou professionnelle en accord avec ces enseignements, vous pouvez visiter et me contacter via mon site web PapillonBlanc.

HASH(0xa7195354) out of 5 stars A superb up to date Reiki book! April 4 2005
By C. POWELL - Published on
Format: Paperback
Bronwen and Frans Stiene have done it again! Following on from their encyclopaedic 'Reiki Sourcebook' they have now written what is probably the most up to date exposition of the roots of Reiki. The book offers much information that is not readily available elsewhere, thanks to their own research and contacts with original students of Usui Sensei (through Chris Marsh) and a student of Eguchi's Palm Healing System,(Eguchi was another student of Usui).

The Stienes cover the emergence of Reiki, including its cultural background and other healing systems around at the time of Usui, the Three Diamonds, The Five Elements of Reiki, the Five Precepts, Mantras (jumon) and symbols (shirushi), Reiju, choosing a Reiki course, developing a regular routine of self-practice and a comprehensive glossary of Japanese terms and further reading.

I can heartily recommend this book to any Reiki Practitioner, or general enquirer, who is interested in what Reiki is really all about. For practitioners of any level, it will bring a new dimension to your practice and heralds a welcome return to the simplicity of the original system of Usui sensei.

HASH(0xa71953a8) out of 5 stars One of the best Reiki Books I've come by Nov. 30 2007
By M. Woodhams - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a Reiki Master and I love to check out books on the subject whenever I can. I was recommended the Reiki Sourcebook, by the same authors, through an online Reiki group. I ended up buying this book as well because I was interested to see Reiki from a more traditional view. I was not disappointed. Both books are very unbiased and easy to follow. Very very informative and original. I was pretty sick of books retelling Reiki histoy and the new age type "airy fairy" take on Reiki. Although there is some history in Sourcebook it is not as dry and overdone as other books. It seems to also be better researched by the authors.
These two books were a breath of fresh air and I had a hard time putting them down. I actually enjoyed The Japanese Art of Reiki more than the Source Book. I thought it was more in-depth on techniques and the practical side of Reiki, which was what I was looking for. It gives you a view of Reiki as a solid daily routine. It just seemed to click with me better than some of what I was taught in my Reiki classes. This book has a lot I have not seen in any other book. The Sourcebook is more of general take on things. Though, there is not much redundant material in each if you buy them together. ( I highly recommend you do) If I could only have two Reiki books it would be these. If I could only have one it would be Japanese Art of Reiki.

HASH(0xa71957e0) out of 5 stars Definitive guide to Reiki Feb. 11 2006
By Linda A. Lubin - Published on
Format: Paperback
Whether you are new to Reiki energy or have been practicing for years, this book will give you the knowledge and awareness of a comprehensive approach to using Reiki for self healing. You will come to understand the true history of Reiki, and then move on to learn the various techniques used in Japanese Reiki which will allow you to deepen your practice. These techniques are rarely taught in Western courses, which are typically greatly abbreviated, and often filled with misinformation.

Bronwen and Stiene have built a rock solid reputation for the accuracy and integrity of their work.

HASH(0xa7195ba0) out of 5 stars The Reiki Community is very gracious to its own April 3 2013
By Lin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is a lot of wonderful information in this book. The history and origins of Reiki are very important and well-covered here - and it's a recent history - very accessible. I am fairly old school and I believe it's important to know the foundations of a practice and to also know how it has been transformed and why. I also tend to use what works for me - but only after I have learned, fairly thoroughly; only then can I embellish or personalize.

The authors would probably praise my intent. And that is where I come to my rating. The book is almost difficult to read at times - the opinions are very strict and it isn't necessary that they be expressed in such an unyielding tone. The tone is incongruous with the content. I would read some other volumes first if you are starting out or simply work with a good teacher. But then come back to this one.

Kindle readers - the story of Sato cannot be zoomed in on - you will need a magnifying glass.

HASH(0xa7195b4c) out of 5 stars A wonderful gift to the Reiki community! May 23 2005
By Midwest Institute of Usui Reiki - Published on
Format: Paperback
I consider this book to be an absolute masterpiece! Unquestionably, the first book on the subject I have been enthusiastic to support! The information is clear, concise, and accurate! I am in the process of rewriting my own reiki manuals to encompass the information contained within. Bravo Bronwen and Frans, you have done it again!
