This book is a wonderful read as well as a reference for various meditations and Reiki knowledge. I bought it when it first came out and still keep it handy near my Reiki table. Karyn inspired me to move ahead on my path to healing others through Reiki. I also am blessed to have met Karyn and have experienced Reiki treatments though her, before buying this book. Her love/light energy shines though this vehicle as if you were in her presence. A true work of love and Reiki energy! Karyn lives what she teaches.

Karyn's approach to the subject is phenomenial. I was first invited into the subject by her personal warmth and sincerity. You can actually feel her spirit! She doesn't waste words, but gets right to the essentials of the healing art/gift. Emphasis is placed on demonstrating a simple and practical technique of Reiki. Drawings and photos of hand positions help to make this a much needed reference for students and teachers alike. Karyn takes you from Reiki 1 to Reiki Master/Teacher, explaining the experience of each level and the steps leading to them. A curriculum for the instruction of each level is provided. As a Reiki Master/Teacher, I highly recommend this book to both students and teachers.

I've used this book in some of my Reiki training classes, and though the information is good, it is badly in need of editing. I've also learned, since reading some of Frank Arjava Petter's books, that Mitchell's history of Reiki is not entirely accurate.
It is amateurishly written and edited, though I have found much of the information useful.

This is one of the first Reiki books I read...after getting attuned...and it's a great basic book. Now that I'm looking at teaching, and have been a master for many years, no matter how much I read, for simple, to the point information this book is it...I will most likely buy copies to give to my students as part of the class.

However the title puzzles me...why does anyone need "a torch in daylight"?....either way, if you are starting out, want more detailed, but simply presented facts about Reiki, the history, the levels, the clearing, this is a great place to start.

Format: Paperback
One of the better books on the healing methods of traditional Reiki, written by Master-Teacher Karyn Mitchell, Ph.D., N.D., of the Hawayo Takata-Iris Ichitaro lineage. The author is a Doctor of Naturopathy, a psychologist, and certified teacher of hypnotherapy, as well as a Reiki Practitioner and Master-Teacher of Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki and Tera Mai Reiki.
When my guides called me to take the Reiki training, I didn't even know what it was. They just kept hammering at me to "DO THIS THING". I set out to find out just what Reiki was all about. I read about a dozen books on Reiki, but this one book stood out. It was basic, clearly written, pragmatic yet with recognition of the more esoteric aspects of Reiki. Karyn has written several other books on Reiki, but this was her first and remains the introductory text for her Reiki classes.
I was ecstatic to discover that Master Karyn lives within driving distance of my home in suburban Chicago. I immediately called her and enrolled in the Level 1 training. I subsequently took Levels II and III from her also.
Karyn Mitchell and her husband, Steve, who is also a Reiki Master-Teacher and a Crystal Healing Teacher (certified by "Melody"), can be reached at: Haven Center for Healing & Education 603 Geneva Road, St. Charles, IL 60174 phone: 815-732-7150 email: Mitchell@essex1.com
Namaste!

I really enjoy this book. Whether or not you believe in all of the premise of Reiki, I love energy work and this book has some good pointers and hand positions I hadn't learned prior. I found it useful. It is helping me develop my own technique and skill.
