If you want an overview of Reiki – its history and information on how it can be of use — Diane Stein’s Essential Reiki: A Complete Guide to an Ancient Healing Art provides an interesting perspective. The book’s description says it all: 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.
Another book by Diane Stein is Essential Reiki Teaching Manual: A Companion Guide for Reiki Healers, and in this book Stein provides Reiki practitioners with the information they need to launch their own Reiki healing practice. She also provides tips on leading workshops and even becoming more effective in your own Reiki practice. It comes with a DVD that provides a visual guide to building a Reiki practitioner practice.
For those who are looking to turn their passion for Reiki into a business, Reiki Marketing: Step By Step Marketing For Your Reiki Healing Sessions, Reiki Classes, and Reiki Workshops provides information on setting up a marketing plan, designing business cards for your Reiki business, finding Reiki jobs, getting booked at health and trade shows, finding local fundraising opportunities and creating joint ventures with other holistic professionals. It also provides tips and insights on getting clients via the Internet, via phone and face to face.
The Reiki Practitioner Marketing Plan and Business Plan is another tool for those who are looking to build a Reiki Practitioner business.
