My Reiki Master Darin Hemingway uses this book in all his teachings and retreats. The Author, Diane Stein was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1948, she holds a Bachelor of Science in Education and English Literature from Duquesne University (1970) and a Master of Arts in English Literature from the University of Pittsburgh (1972). She has studied healing and psychic work for over 30 years. She is a feminist, Wiccan, a Reiki practitioner, and an author.
Her first book, on the I Ching, was The Kwan Yin Book of Changes (1985), also published as A Woman’s I Ching. She has since written more than 25 books on alternative healing, natural remedies, women’s spirituality, and feminist metaphysics. She considers healing such an important element of goddess spirituality that she specifies that all rituals must contain elements of healing.

Reiki is an ancient and profoundly simple system of “laying on of hands” healing derived from Tibetan Buddhism. In the West, Reiki has been kept highly secret for many years. ESSENTIAL REIKI presents full information on all three degrees of this healing system, most of it in print for the first time. Teaching from the perspective that Reiki healing belongs to all people, Diane Stein breaks new ground in her classic guide to this ancient practice. While no book can replace the directly received Reiki “attunements,” ESSENTIAL REIKI provides everything else that the healer, practitioner, and teacher of this system needs.
