Based on more than a decade of the author’s successful workshops, this resource expands and refines the unique combination of the hands-on healing modality of Reiki with the life-changing shamanic journey. The resulting knowledge is presented clearly and concisely, making it possible for those with no previous background in Reiki or shamanism to understand, appreciate, and enjoy the teachings while those more experienced can glean new insight for their own healing work. Providing generous examples of shamanic journeying beyond ordinary reality and citing hundreds of case studies from the author’s own private practice, this reference also lists internet references for further research.
