I am a Reiki Master/Teacher so I have read a lot of Reiki books, kind of a hobby of mine. Every time I read Katalin Koda's Sacred Path of Reiki:Healing as a spiritual Discipline, I find something new and wonderful. She tells great stories, keeps my interest and I always learn something new, something I didn't remember from before or wasn't needing to take in the time before. This is one of my top favorite Reiki books now.
I've read several books on Reiki. Koda takes a unique approach to Reiki by explaining the general information about Reiki and adding her own twist of Reiki Warrior ideals. It's been an interesting read.
I bought this book because it had a beautiful cover! Not the most ideal way to purchase something, but in this case I am so glad I did. An inspiring and thought provoking book, very useful as a tool for a personal Reiki journey - it has re-booted my interest in spirituality.
Over the last few years there has been a growing interest, awareness and practice of the healing art of Reiki. With its wonderful potential of healing and spiritual growth, it is important for both practitioners as well as anyone that receives its benefits to have a reference source as well as a users manual. Katalin Koda has written just such a book, "Sacred Path of Reiki" which covers this subject in such a way that will enhance such information for both beginners and more advanced healers and adepts. The history and benefits of Reiki are well covered as well as step by step explanations on its usage and exercises for enhancing the benefits. Nicely illustrated and easy to follow examples along with an excellent appendix, glossary and resource index are also provided. Katalin is an excellent writer and integrator of many styles of healing practices which she expresses throughout this easy to read and enjoyable book. Her personal experiences which she adds throughout the book further add depth to the text as well as make it an excellent book to read even if one does not want to go any further into Reiki besides learning more about this valuable holistic approach to healing and spiritual practice. I enjoyed reading the book and recommend you order a copy of Katalin Koda's "Sacred Path of Reiki" as well.
This book is an excellent textbook for the Reiki student, but it will be of equal interest to anyone who wishes to improve one's life through the use of the mind/body/spirit connection to health and well being. Ms. Koda includes many thoughts and practices that anyone can use for living a balanced, peaceful, joyous life. It is a thoroughly researched, well written book that includes personal stories and case histories which make the practice more relevant to our lives. It is an excellent book for many audiences.
In the way it situates Reiki within an integrated healing system, this is a head and shoulders above most of the Reiki books out there today. A well written, beautifully produced book that will enrich the bookshelves of any interested in the healing arts. Katalin Koda is a visionary healer for our times.
