Review by

Reiki Sourcebook Revised Edition 2008by Bronwen & Frans Stiene I reviewed the original Reiki Sourcebook before and I didn't think one could improve on perfection, but they have succeeded admirably in this 434 page revised edition. The authors state that Reiki has been shifting and in many ways returning back to it's tradition roots. I also was impressed with the Reiki Past, present and future format, it helped me to see the flow of the energy for myself. As before, there is a lot of well presented info about many aspects of the healing modality, even the various controversy surrounding Reiki. I loved the graphs and flow charts they really helped me to gain a better understanding of where Reiki came from and where it is going. I feel that anyone at any stage of their connection to Reiki would deeply benefit from reading this book, and using it for a reference in the future. Being a Reiki Master myself, I am sure I will be returning to this spiritually inspired teacher over and over again. Thanks you two, for continuing to help bring Reiki to the world. Love & Light, Riki Frahmann
