I like this book a great deal because Mr. Beckett displays that refreshing (and rare) combination of breadth of knowledge and humility. The book's perspective is strikingly balanced in many ways. For example, there is an equal combination of the history and theory of Reiki with many practical techniques--some traditional, some his own. There is lots in here on various hand positions, treatment with stones, sweeping the energy field with hands, breathing, and so forth. Because of the thorough research Mr. Beckett has done, the reader will gain some interesting insights into the early days of Reiki as well as how this teaching has evolved over the years, mostly through written records and the voices of Usui Sensei's students and others such as Mr. Doi. Also, while the author makes it plain that he comes from a traditional Usui Reiki background, the book doesn't privilege any one perspective and diminish others. Rather, it introduces alternative perspectives and allows the reader to make up his or her mind on the matter, which is nice. Beckett has a knack for knowing what to delve into deeply, what merely to touch upon, and what not to bother with at all so that one is never overwhelmed or bored. In addition to the author's humble and hopeful tone, he also appears to have a profound respect for Reiki that pervades the book. Let's face it--there are now so many horrid "learn Reiki quick!" books and DVD's out on the market that seem neither to know much about the subject nor to have any especial dedication to the original spiritual principles of Usui Sensei's healing art that Beckett's book is quite a welcome relief, and, may I say, long overdue. His perspective, probably because he draws heavily from the works of Mr. Doi, does a lot to heal the divide between Japanese and Western Reiki. He distinguishes between Rei and Ki, the universal life force energy and one's own personal ki, which was left out of Western-style Reiki. Importantly, the author reaffirms that Reiki, while it's mostly seen as a healing art, is primarily a personal spiritual connection with our Source, which is what it always should have been. The diagrams and pictures are clear and easy to learn from. Anyone can read this book with profit, from first degree through third, but it might be overwhelming for a first degree newbie, since the knowledge it contains of second and third degrees might muck things up a bit before they're initiated into those degrees. It contains second degree symbols (which look quite accurately drawn), but out of respect for the art and its initiation process there are no instructions for the attunement process, which I think is the way it should be. The only thing I'm not too crazy about is that he advertizes treatments with "shinki," a primordial reiki he claims to have discovered, which I'm suspicious of. I think it's a different energy entirely and doesn't belong in the book. Otherwise, the book is super. Enjoy!

Don's book is an important contribution to the Reiki community. Elaborating on what has become a somewhat controversial subject; the history of Mikao Usui and his Reiki system, including the two Buddhist Nuns who allegedly spent most days with Usui san during his last four years of life, this book covers new ground in that area.

What I like most about this book, however, is Don's revelation that Usui's system, as it was originally created, was for the individual to discover and experience SELF as they traveled this path. The system was and is a life long journey to understanding and loving the self. As a wise man once said, 'know thyself'.

I am on my second reading as there is much to digest here. Don encourages us to dive deep into the realm of Reiki self practice, to find our own way by going beyond dogma (and even technique) and allowing ourselves to learn from Rei ki itself.

A very good read for anyone who loves Reiki and for those who have a budding interest as well. Thanks Don!

This book must be taken in the spirit it is written, which is to expand upon Reiki's path into the west. There are arguments around the rewriting of the history of Reiki to include aspects thought not to have been originally taught by Mikao Usui, such as the kotodama, variations on transmitting attunements, and the insight into Usui's experience that led to the formalization of Reiki as a system. I completely respect those arguments and feel a sense of protection for the traditional study and the culture that created it. With that in mind, understand that this book challenges facets of that tradition. If you are not comfortable with that, this book is not for you.

That said, I find it engaging and well-written. I cannot speak to the validity of Reiki's history; therefore, I cannot judge the accuracy of this work. It is compelling and carries with it a sense of honor and respect for the Usui tradition, despite its deviations. This book could appeal to someone beginning Reiki, but it is more likely to address questions and curiosities of a seasoned practitioner, as well as pique established methodologies.

I've had my head buried in this book ever since it arrive. It is a fountain of information and tells you all you want to know about Reiki and the different types of Reiki.

Bought this for my dad, who is a Reiki hardcore fan, I personally can't comment on anything about it since my Reiki knowledge is as good as nothing. Sooo, non contents-wise, product is in flawless condition, like new as described. It's printed on great quality paper, and I don't know, it contains pictures and stuff (of japanese people massaging, touching people's temples....I think this review should stop right here. Only con about this purchase: shipping took quite loooong.
