Energy healing is a field that has been talked about in recent years, especially when it comes to Reiki, a Japanese technique that has thousands of students, practitioners, and teachers around the globe. Being a Reiki Master, it is more than important to keep learning in order to improve and feed your personal practice. When I came across The Reiki Teacher’s Manual – Second Edition: A Guide for Teachers, Students, and Practitioners, by Tina M. Zion, I didn’t doubt before getting a copy, and I wish a book like this would have been available before.
When I started my Reiki practice, more than a year ago, I found myself with several doubts and questions. I would find the answers sooner or later, but many of them, if not all, are present in this book. The author presents each important aspect of Reiki in a way that is easy to follow and understand.
Although there is always a bit of mystery when it comes to this Japanese healing system, Tina M. Zion answers every possible doubt you may have, whether you’re an experienced practitioner or just discovered the magic of Reiki. There are no secrets, no promises of future answers, only guidance and understanding.
I liked the most how The Reiki Teacher’s Manual offered a guide on how to teach reiki and offers several forms and formats the reader can use in a class. The author also includes her experiences in order to give examples of how and when to use them, while also leaving enough space for the teachers their own structures.
However, it is important to note that you need to be attuned to be able to teach and use reiki, and the branch Tina M. Zion is speaking about in this book is, if I am not mistaken, Usui Traditional Reiki. You can use the techniques and teach like she suggests in The Reiki Teacher’s Manual, but there are some that seem to be specific to this branch.
To be honest, I have nothing bad to say about this book. I started it and finished in the same night, and so you can guess what a light and fast reading it was. You may want to take some notes, I will always suggest it, but this book in particular, was so easy to understand and follow that I didn’t find it necessary in this occasion.
Reiki has changed my life for the better, just like it has done for many others. It is encouraging to see a book that captures that optimism and positivity for the readers to know exactly what they can expect. The Reiki Teacher’s Manual is also a tool for them to guess if they are interested in reiki, in the first place.
It doesn’t matter in which level you are or if you follow a completely different branch. The Reiki Teacher’s Manual – Second Edition: A Guide for Teachers, Students, and Practitioners, by Tina M. Zion, will help you navigate this wonderful, healing journey, while also teaching you how to teach others. You can see light dripping from every page.
