the reiki sourcebookTeachers have been contacting us from many different countries and branches of Reiki to tell us that they love The Reiki Sourcebook and will be using it as a standard source material textbook for their students. Have a look below for ideas on how to use this book with your students.

The Reiki Sourcebook has been updated in 2009 and is now divided up into sections Reiki Past, Reiki Present and Reiki Future and includes new sections such as Reiki and Global Warming.

It is possible to buy books in bulk from your national distributor and sell them to students at the recommended retail price.

It is a reference book, a compendium, an illustrated guide, an encyclopedia and even a manual.

Why not buy it in bulk and (if you aren’t selling them) GIVE them to your students – just include the cost in the course fee. This supplies them with the best possible grounding in the system of Reiki that they can possibly receive.

To complete your, and your students, training don’t forget to check out The Japanese Art of Reiki if you are wanting your students to know more about the Japanese aspects of the system and how to practice them.
