Publisher Comments:

Reiki is an ancient and profoundly simple system of “laying on of hands” healing derived from Tibetan Buddhism. In the West, Reiki has been kept highly secret for many years. ESSENTIAL REIKI presents full information on all three degrees of this healing system, most of it in print for the first time. Teaching from the perspective that Reiki healing belongs to all people, Diane Stein breaks new ground in her classic guide to this ancient practice. While no book can replace the directly received Reiki “attunements,” ESSENTIAL REIKI provides everything else that the healer, practitioner, and teacher of this system needs.


Reiki is an ancient and simple system of laying on of hands healing derived from Tibetan Buddhism. Kept secret for many years, this book demystifies the three degrees of Reiki healing.

About the Author

DIANE STEIN is a popular and acclaimed healer and the best-selling author of Essential Reiki and 25 other books in the fields of metaphysical healing, women's spirituality, and alternative health. She lives and teaches in Florida.


Read any good books lately?

My favorite reading is science fiction, there are new good books coming out every day.  Look at Sharon Shinn, Tamora Pierce, Ann Bishop, and so many more talented women fiction writers.

If you had to boil your book's message down to one sentence, what would it be?

Serve the Light, trust the Light, make a difference in the world with who you are and what you do.

What are you working on now?

I prefer to keep future books a secret until they are finished.  No one will know until the manuscript is mailed in.

Do you eat your vegetables?

I have been a vegetarian since 1983.  I do eat my vegetables.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

Wonder Woman, of course.

How long did it take you to write this book? 

I have been working with herbs for over 35 years, so you could say it took that long to write it.

I received my Master Teacher level attunements while living in Sedona, AZ in 1995 . This book has been a foundational resource I give each of my students taking 2nd level or beyond. While there are many great books with wonderful information on Reiki - this one is a comprehensive and well illustrated guide that's perfect complement to the mentoring approach I take to teaching.

Good info, but Stein has such a negative edge to her writing that doesn't seem conducive to a good Reiki practice. She is very pro-woman (cool), but at the expense of being VERY anti-man (not cool). Reiki is about compassion. How does excluding half the population speak of compassion. I prefer other authors, although she is obviously a very wise and talented woman.
