With In Focus Reiki, join Reiki Master Des Hynes as he teaches the basics of this popular healing system and taps into your inner healer to understand how Reiki can be used to reduce stress, depression, anxiety, and physical pain in yourself and others. Included inside the back cover are seven beautifully illustrated guided meditation cards based on the five Reiki principles.
Combined from the Japanese words Rei, meaning "God's wisdom, universal life, or higher power" and Ki, meaning "life force or energy," Reiki is the healing practice of balancing our "universal life energy" around our bodies. Founded in the early twentieth century by Japanese Buddhist monk Mikao Usui with the underlying belief that our bodies have the natural ability to heal, reiki transfers healing energy by using the placement of hands to blocked areas.

Shoden: The first degree of Reiki study
Okuden: The second degree of Reiki study
