“As a person with a Master Reiki degree, I found this to be a wonderful discovery for my work on others and myself. Bringing negative energies into a harmonizing and curative balance is what healing is all about. A most enlightening read and a must for anyone giving Reiki.” (Dhara Lemos, Lotus Guide, November 2012)
From the Back Cover
HEALTH / REIKI
Recognized for its support of self-healing and overall well-being, Reiki is now used in hospitals throughout the world. Commonly viewed as a Japanese healing art, the practice of Reiki originated with the Chen Yen masters of China, who called it Tao Te Qi. Transmitted to Idris Lahore by his grandfather, a direct student of Master Huang Zhen Hui, Reiki Tao Te Qi offers students of Reiki a deeper understanding of the Reiki principles and new ways to enrich the effectiveness of their practice.
Revealing sanmitsu--the three Reiki secrets of the Tao Te Qi physical, emotional, and mental centers--this fully illustrated guide covers the 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-degree Reiki training courses and initiations as first taught by the Chen Yen masters of China. Exploring the history of Reiki in China as well as its earliest roots in Indian ayurveda, yoga, and tantra, the book explains the Three Pillars of Reiki--Ajikan (meditation), Nei Gong (techniques of protection, detoxification, and intention), and Chiryo (intuition and the laying on of hands). This book also offers chapters on Reiki as a spiritual path, the ethical principles of Reiki, and Reiki’s relationship to psychogenealogy and ancestral healing. Outlining invaluable preparation techniques for more effective practice as well as ways to use Reiki to harmonize the chakras, this guide shows how Reiki Tao Te Qi can transform even the most negative energies into harmonizing, curative, creative energies.
IDRIS LAHORE is one of Europe’s leading specialists in energetic, psychocorporal, and systemic techniques. He is the first to introduce the ancestral Chinese practice of Reiki Tao Te Qi to a Western public and has received wide acclaim for the depth of his approach to Reiki and the spiritual dimension of his work. Lahore is the founder of the Free University of Samadeva in Alsace, France, and the French Institute of Family and Systemic Constellations. He is the coauthor of Dervish Yoga for Health and Longevity, and he lives in France.

As history TTQ is weak.
As instruction TTQ is poor.
TTQ's sources are undocumented.
A pastiche of notes on reiki lore,TTQ lacks vitality and conviction.Questions are left unanswered, and discussions left unfinished, most notably the discussion of the Chinese version of reiki.
The author, Lahore. includes no personal anecdotes or insight in his discussion of reiki, causing the reader to wonder how authentic his experience with reiki really is.
All in all, there are better reiki books out there.
Being a Level 3 Reiki Master and Certified Instructor of Reiki, I was curious to find any differences or similarities to what I was taught and received. After reading Lahore's narrative, I realized that much of what I learned had been diluted or Westernized. I felt like I was beginning at Level One again at the beginning of the book. Because of this, I highly recommend any Reiki Master to consider this book. I believe you will find insight, clarity, and additional information that was not presented to you through the Usui method of Reiki.
Although the book addresses and uses "The Three Pillars of Reiki according to Mikao Usui," it also teaches the practitioner to reveal "sanmitsu." This is referred to as the Reiki secrets of the Tao Te Qi physical, emotional, and mental centers. The illustrations in the book help the practitioner to position oneself and the patient for the best transmission of healing. As well, a section addresses balancing and harmonizing the chakras for better health and creativity in one's life.
There is also a section that addresses psychogenealogy and ancestral healing; both are coming to the forefront in the world of psychology and labeled as imprints. For any healing practitioner this is an important aspect of assisting their patients of healing the present.
Personally, The Three Secrets of Reiki Tao Te Qi made for slow reading; not because it isn't written in lay language (it is), but because it ended up being like a refresher course for me with new information added. Although I did study the Usui method, the additional information and methods in The Three Secrets of Reiki Tao Te Qi took time for me to implement into my own routine. I appreciate Idris Lahore's mission to introduce the practice of Reiki Tao Te Qi to the Western world, especially practitioners of non-Usui method of Reiki. I believe his undertaking is valiant considering the number of modalities that have transpired from the Usui method and are called something different.
