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.

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