#BookReview: Mindfulness Meditation and the Art of Reiki by Steve Gooch

I received a copy of this book for review, and since I am a Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher, I was keen to read it. See my review below.  

My Review

As a qualified Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher in the Japanese tradition, everything that the author discussed in his book made sense. He sounded a lot like my reiki teacher, and it was refreshing to learn insights about how we work with reiki energy in mindfulness and meditation practice, and how beliefs about reiki have changed over time.

For me, reiki is something that we learn to consciously feel, not something we switch on and off, and that is what is explained in this book. The author draws comparisons with Buddhism and ancient energy healing systems, and everything is well-referenced and supported so we can continue to explore the themes of mindfulness, meditation, and reiki practice.

About the Book

Beyond the concept of energy healing, the system of Reiki was engineered as a powerful spiritual development practice built on the bedrock of mindfulness meditation. Unpacking the esoteric Buddhist heart of the practice, this book will guide you to a more fulfilling, healthy and spiritually dynamic life by showing you how to approach the system from a mindfulness perspective. New information and insights into the methods, mechanics and philosophy of Reiki make this an essential read for anyone interested in the system’s original purpose.

As Reiki comes under increasing scrutiny over its health-supportive characteristics, now is the time to shine a light on its symbiotic relationship with mindfulness practice in helping to alleviate the suffering of the human condition.
