From the Publisher
Although The Radiance Technique(R), Authentic Reiki(R) has existed as a science of universal energy, regardless of the name or language applied to it, for an unknown number of centuries, Dr. Barbara Ray's groundbreaking book, first published in hardback in January 1983, was the very first time this technique had been expertly and historically detailed in print. It was an instant success as an initial publication of an independent press, quickly requiring additional press runs. Subsequent printings of the hardback edition, followed by the Expanded Editions, have circulated around the world and have opened doors for a wide variety of subsequent publications on The Radiance Technique(R), Authentic Reiki(R), including "The Official Handbook of The Radiance Technique(R)," "The Expanded Reference Manual of The Radiance Technique(R)" and "The Radiance Technique(R) and Managing Stress," all by Dr. Ray, plus "The Radiance Technique(R) and The Animal Kingdom" by Marvelle Lightfields, "The Radiance Technique(R) and Cancer," by Katherine Lenel and "The Radiance Technique(R) on the Job" by Fred. W. Wright Jr. These books, as well as a growing number of others about The Radiance Technique(R) -- a total of 10 in English -- continue to expand the lexicon of literature on this science of universal, transcendental energy for self-help and energy-balancing, all the result of the initial publication of this book 15 years ago.
From the Back Cover
The term "The Radiance Technique(R)" is applied to the authentic science to distinguish it from those techniques which are not the authentic system. As one of the former editors and current consulting editor of "The Radiance Technique Journal," Dr. Barbara Ray contributes writing from her vast knowledge of this science of transcendental energy for deepening and expanding the information shared with a worldwide readership of this publication.
A world traveler and lecturer with a special devotion to expanding awareness of our "inner- Radiant-connection" to all life, Dr. Ray has spent extended time working with Inner Light at a number of natural power centers on Planet Earth and continues with her dedication to expanding our natural bonds with the unique and precious animal kingdom on earth. During the past 14 years, she has personally conducted a number of Meditation and Initiation journeys and Radiant Renewal Retreats with groups to Egypt, Greece, Israel, England, the Swiss Alps, and a number of special energy sites in America. She is also a professional, licensed astrologer whose radio show, "Star-Talk," aired in Atlanta a number of years ago, and is a practicing clairvoyant since 1973 and an especially gifted reader of the I Ching.
During the past several years, Dr. Ray has had the privilege and honor of working with a number of celebrity actors and actresses and opera, concert, and rock singers with the vibrational science The Radiance Technique(R) and has developed a special and unique program for singers and speakers called Radiant Vocal Expansion(sm).
Since 1984, Dr. Ray has been creating and offering an ongoing and continuous series of lectures, seminars, materials, and retreats called The Awakening Journey(R), designed to help, guide, and support students seeking the Path of Initiation into the Awakening to the Real Self, of Real, not reflected, Light and of the Inner, Forever Heart.
Dr. Ray is deeply and always involved in the ongoing unfolding process of the evolution of human and planetary Consciousness. She spends several months each year in a personal retreat of writing and of continuous Meditation and Silence for World Peace and for Human Awakening to Spiritual Reality.
