Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

I was introduced to Reiki, the Usui System of Natural Healing, in 1984. I was intrigued. The energy certainly felt healing. The treatment technique seemed simple, and the effects were certainly real. I signed up for a first level training in April 1985.

The class turned out to be one of the most profound experiences of my life. This energy was the most comforting thing I had ever felt. I remember thinking that I really couldn't do anything better with my life than to share this with other people - that anyone could feel such peace, such comfort, and love, even, at the simple touch of a hand. I began practicing Reiki immediately, on myself and others; and began training as a teaching Master in August that same year. After a three year apprenticeship, I was initiated as a traditional teaching Master in the Usui System of Natural Healing by Linda Keiser Mardis in April, 1988.

Since then I have practiced and taught Reiki almost all the way around the world. (I'm missing about a thousand miles between Indonesia and Nepal, having traveled east on one trip and west on another.) I was elected to the Leaders Council - the governing Board of The Reiki Alliance, an international organization of Usui System Masters - in 1992 and served three years in this capacity. I was one of the founders and continue to be a Board member of the North East Reiki Gathering, serving the larger Reiki community since 1991.

As I say in my classes, "If I ever find anything better easier, simpler or more effective than Reiki I will personally write you all a letter and tell you what it is. In the meantime, Reiki is the best natural healing method I have ever found. It addresses the body/mind/spirit entity, completely supporting the body's innate ability to heal itself. There is no dogma, nothing to memorize, nothing to believe or have faith in - you simply do it and it works. Your own experience is your proof. The only requirements are a willingness to learn and a desire to practice (especially on yourself - we begin here) this natural healing art."

This book is a practical and useful guide for any level Reiki practitioner. It covers: treatment on self and for others beginning with the physical - a basic overview of the anatomy, physiology, and interrelated functions of the body's organs and glands; and moving into the metaphysical - explorations of how energy works through the physical systems to bring balance, and healing, to the body. There is enough information to keep your left brain happy while your right brain enjoys the stories of something we all are capable of - healing ourselves and each other - especially through the practice of Reiki.

Love and Blessings

Format: Paperback
Penelope Jewell's new practice guide for Reiki is one of the most clear and personable books I've yet seen on the topic. Simple line drawings show the placement of hands for both self healing and for working with others. Her inclusion of information on anatomy, physiology, and the metaphysical aspects of healing are a definite plus. Later sections, on running a healing circle and on finding a teaching Master, are both excellent guides from an experienced teacher. Jewell is straightforward in her knowledge and assumptions; and her reverence and respect for the system is grounded and inspiring.
This book will help many new practitioners deepen their understanding of the practice of Reiki. And since Jewell is a Master in the traditional branch of the system, it will also serve as insight into one traditional Master's work and understandings of this amazing healing art.
I showed the book to one woman (also a Reiki Master) who runs a wellness and healing arts center. Her comment was right on the money. "She's covered everything in this book," she said with tremendous appreciation. "You could TEACH from this book!" Indeed, you can.

Penelope Jewell has explained in full detail the applications and the different uses of Reiki not only in the healing form, but also implementing Reiki into everyday uses in life. This complex healing art is brought to light through excellent illustrations and clear and concise explanation of each step of the many uses of Reiki.

Format: Paperback
Penelope's book is wonderful and practical and concise. She packs a lot of information into it's pages and makes it amazingly simple to understand.
It's a beautiful book, and the knowledge expressed in it feels as pure and the white cover with it's purple lettering.
Along with Diane Stein's Essential Reiki, this book belongs on the bookshelf of every practioner at any level and any client who is interested in knowing more about Reiki

By Donna R on October 10, 2013
Format: Paperback
This is my favorite book on Reiki, and it's my go-to source if I need a refresher. It's also the gift I give to people who are new practitioners. Unlike some books on Reiki, it's easy to read, it's straight-forward and it's respectful of the traditions of this sacred practice.
