Amazon.com Review

Janeanne Narrin's One Degree Beyond is an engaging introduction to Reiki, the rapidly growing art form that has proven to be an avenue for many to alleviate tension, manage stress, and expand powers of perception. Although One Degree Beyond does not claim to be a course in Reiki, it is designed like a textbook, with sidebars and review questions, making it an easy-to-follow guide to discovering Reiki as both a methodology and a life-force energy. Narrin's anecdotes knit together the metaphysical concepts behind Reiki, and offer a glimpse at a new world waiting to be discovered by those willing to explore one degree beyond the apparent boundaries of our lives. --Brian Patterson


"Interested in learning more about Reiki? Stress management? Relaxation? Alternative medicine? This book will teach you these things - and more - through exercises and anecdotes quotes and other devices designed to teach you about them experientially... If you are looking to move one degree beyond the apparent to reinvent yourself, to balance your everyday life, to access your creative zest, to deepen your connection to your own life energy, to be something different or something better, One Degree Beyond is a valuable new resource guide." -- John Charnay, Reviewer, Whole Life Times

"Narrin introduces readers to the philosophy and practice of Reiki as a path of stress reduction and enlightenment. [She] discusses at length the nature of "Ki" and the interrelatedness of all beings." -- Intuition Magazine

"One Degree Beyond brings the idea of Reiki into the world of energy medicine. Bringing this old-world healing art into the present world-culture creates an opportunity to discover how the body actually responds to energy. [There are] instructions for discovering and recognizing "Ki" that alive energy that permeates all things. Terrific reading for both the student and practitioner." -- Janey Seavey, Reviewer, Concepts Magazine

"This author clearly uses both sides of her brain. On the purely logical left side she has a background in Industrial Psychology and Business, with a career that spans years in management consulting, while on the creative right she's a writer, a painter, a poet and a photographer. In this book the author describes how the amazing long arm of synchronistic events in her life brought her to the discovery of Reiki (pronounced Ray-Kee), which is described as a gentle hands-on technique. Reiki appeals to both left and right minded mindsets, Narrin explains, for it brings together contemporary scientific knowledge and ties it in with age-old spiritual insights and wisdom. One Degree Beyond isn't an ordinary book. It's a workbook designed for your own personal self-discovery." -- Brent Raynes, Editor, Alternative Perceptions

"What a pleasure to find a book on Reiki that has the ability to bring healing, even by reading it! Janeanne shows integrity and responsibility in the manner of which she presents Reiki; a means of tapping into our life's potential and making it a reality.

Many people are longing for a way to achieve personal growth and development. In this book, the concept of Reiki is outlined, and a plan guiding a 21-day process is included to help you grasp an awareness that will bring you closer to the path you were meant to walk.

The guidance is balanced with poetic and literary writings which leave you with a sense of peace." -- Julianna Joyce Perkins, Book Reviewer, Awareness Magazine

Not since Bodo J. Baginski and Shalila Sharmon's book "Universal Life Energy" in 1988 has there been a book that has so much heart. JaneAnne Narrin's *One Degree Beyond: A REIKI Journey Into Energy Medicine* is a unique arrival on the literary scene - and one written directly from Heart.
Taking the methodology, a sublime methodology I might add, called *The Usui System of Natural Healing*, and how it can, with Intent, become one of the most powerful and effective ways to move Narrin, in "One Degree Beyond" shows how to put Reiki to work in one's life, indeed, even change the quality of one's life. For this she won the 1999 Visionary Award.
While the marketplace is awash with books on 'reiki' very few books, if any, explore the matter of personal transformation in conjunction with this simple practice, Reiki.
Narrin points out the place of Reiki in a living partnership with which one begins to have aa fuller and more resonant experience of Being Alive. And she does this in both a practical and eloquent way. In a sense, Reiki practice *is* pure channeling: when one has life experiences and by the relaxed observation of them brings forth insights that spring forth with intuition right from the heart of All That Is.
"One Degree Beyond. . ." is not a book teaching Reiki methodology per se (giving hand positions, and other data is more appropriate and accessible in a workshop setting,) but this book looks instead at the Essence of Reiki.
Having myself taught Reiki for many years, this (the Essence) is of special interest to me.

I love the attention to detail and the beautiful artwork that this book contains. The layout is well done and I find it causes me to be drawn into the text. The exercises are interesting and unique to most Reiki books. Her descriptions make the practice of Reiki easy to understand and the drawings are helpful. The storys add interest and give a refreshing perspective. Certainly a lot of thought has been given to the creation of this very useful Reiki book.

Having read the first edition of this book with great enthusiasm, I quickly got the second edition. Janeanne Narrin does it again, building bridges connecting many kinds of people, scientists, environmentalists, seekers on the spiritual path, weaving a common thread of thought. Readers are taken directly into the heart of Reiki Energy Medicine, a relaxation technique and transformative experience. Reiki, a down to earth system so simple yet profound. It assists peoples' innate wisdom to aid healing on all levels, a system finding its way into the medical community. If possible, the second edition of One Degree Beyond is even better than the first. It lights a torch revealing paths of exploration through scientific approaches, poetry and storytelling. This book is a gem, a guide for personal and planetary healing.

After reading and studing this book, I have found that the insights Janeanne Narrin brings, along with the "ways" to learn about, and get into contact with this energy bring to life something we all "know" exists. It allows us to step by step tune in and tune up!..
Good reading, and a better study guide.... much "fuller" than any other I have studied...I recommend highly and am hoping Janeanne creates a sequal ...

Just finished this book and it had a tremendous impact, right from the onset. Below is a short synopsis for those who are interested. Synopsis: First, what an erudite work! It was beautifully done with such a professional and personal touch. I liked everything about it, but let me quote a few specifics which impacted me a lot. Visual impact: I had really begun to believe this was a lost art. However, Janeanne used it so effectively. I thoroughly enjoyed the way she ignored the common, rushed format of filling the page, regardless. She had enough control to say, NO, the thought stops here and so will the page. I loved it! Gave me a chance to pause and fully digest the content. The selected type fonts were great, perfect. Not sure how she did it, but it demonstrated she cared enough for impact to find out how it could be done. The script capital beginning each new thought. The poems in script. The clarity of the font. I loved it all. The usage of the page. She uses less than half of the white space, especially the "outside" margins. Again, this left me room to think without feeling crowded. Also, I made some notes in this precious space. English usage: As an injuneer, I'm no expert on the usage of English. However, I love to read when the work is well written. My favorite author is Pat Conroy. His usage of the language is so perfect that everything comes alive. Janeanne has a similar talent. I can't recall how long it's been since I read a book without a grammatical, spelling, tense, or construction error. Again, I'm technically educated, so I could easily overlook errors, but with most authors - they jump out and hit you on the nose. It means you can read relaxed.Read more ›
