"As one of the early Reiki Masters in the Western Hemisphere, Krishni Boräng has a unique and deep understanding of Reiki. In this book she offers insights drawn from a long and thoughtful practice. This is of immense value to students of Reiki today and to those wishing to learn more about this unique and profound healing art."
- Rick Bockner, Reiki Master
"This is the only Reiki book that I recommend to my students and I am delighted that it is back in print. It tells you everything you need to know about Reiki with very practical advice. Krishni has a wealth and depth of experience from her many years of practice and close association with one of Hawayo Takata's Masters, Wanja Twan."
- Martha Sylvester, Reiki Master
"It is a relief for me to have a book that I can recommend to people that represents Reiki the way it was given to me. Krishni's book connects me to all that I love about the Usui System of Reiki...the beauty, simplicity, honesty and integrity of the system; the love I have for my Reiki Master and the power of Reiki itself that never ceases to amaze me."
- Liora Lalita Claff, Reiki Master
"If you need just one Reiki book to help you to come to know Reiki, or on your journey with Reiki in practice, this is THE book. Reiki is a practical, not theoretical, Healing Art, and Krishni with her 30 years' experience cuts straight through to the crucial essentials that you will need."
- Paul Dennis, Reiki Master
"Those new to Reiki and those who are already Reiki initiated will find inspiration in Krishni's lovely book."
- Kate Jones, Reiki Master
