    First of all, I love Penczak's way of writing. He is down to earth and easy to understand, without a lot of fluff and banter. He gets straight to the point, presents the facts, and offers some of his experienced opinion (but not too much so that you feel as if all you're reading is a manifesto). Being that he is a High Priest and also a Reiki Master/Teacher, I felt he was more than qualified to write the book and I've read a few of his other works, as well. This one did not disappoint.

Being that he is a High Priest and also a Reiki Master/Teacher, I felt he was more than qualified to write the book and I've read a few of his other works, as well. This one did not disappoint. His approach to writing about Reiki is progressive, in that he doesn't believe it should be a "hidden" practice but he also stresses the importance that an attunement to Reiki is necessary before using the symbols, etc. What I really enjoyed in this book are the chapters where Penczak presents the dozens of different symbols used in various Reiki traditions. I am Reiki Level 2 and know a few of the symbols, but the rest were new to me. While I found them interesting, I do not plan to use them as I have not been attuned to these traditions and levels (yet). Though it did put a fire under me to take more Reiki courses so that I can be given these amazing symbols. Also, the fact that he details the many different Reiki traditions...I had NO clue there were so many out there! The one I was particularly interested in was Shamballa Reiki. Karuna Reiki is another on my list. Penczak also goes into detail in the book about ways to use Reiki in your magick, if you are indeed a magickal practitioner of some kind (witch, shaman, etc). There are shamanic rituals and circle-castings that can be combined with Reiki, and I love his approach to each of them. I use Reiki in my magick and feel it goes hand-in-hand (pun intended). Highly recommend to magickal practitioners who are also Reiki practitioners and want a new perspective on combining the two!

    I've read quite a few of Christopher's books (and, in the spirit of full disclosure, studied with him briefly some years ago). One of the things I appreciate most about him is how down-to-earth he is. That's not what you might expect from someone who writes about metaphysical and occult topics, but there you have it. This book is no exception. It covers both the main stream and some of the tributaries of Reiki (as things stood in 2004) and is very clear about what is likely to be original to Usu I've read quite a few of Christopher's books (and, in the spirit of full disclosure, studied with him briefly some years ago).

This book is no exception. It covers both the main stream and some of the tributaries of Reiki (as things stood in 2004) and is very clear about what is likely to be original to Usui's system and what has been added on by the generations that followed him. As the title indicates, Christopher focuses on the compatibility between Reiki and magic(k), and does an excellent job of showing where and how the two overlap. It's definitely worth reading if you are a Reiki practitioner, a student of pagan or occult traditions, or just someone interested in the highways and byways of spirituality.

    I loved this book...It was well worth the time and money spent. It was unique compared to all the other Reiki books that I have read. I highly recommend it.

The time is now!

    Magick of Reiki definitely took my thoughts of mystic aspects deeper than what was given through going through Reiki 1 & 2 training. I also noticed the real deeper aspects of magick were covered and ways in which to combine them. I am going to likely buy this in the hardcover as well. I got the kindle edition thinking I could just go through it. I had no idea that I would have all these extra reiki symbols that I could add to my tools in here showing up.

If you're a Reiki practitioner definitely add this if you want to boost your healing focuses with key aspects in life like addictions, awareness, burns, infections, communication, emotional healing etc.

    This book was recommended to me from my Reiki Master, who is also a fellow pagan. Great book that, although written by a Wiccan, has a strong focus on reiki while incorporating it into a magickal pathway that doesn't feel 'too witchy' as stated by another reviewer. There's a lot of information presented within this book and it's a great addition to any reiki library! This book was recommended to me from my Reiki Master, who is also a fellow pagan.

    I have to say I own a lot of reiki books, collected over many years of studying Reiki and Seichem. And most of them get a cursory glance over then get put back on the shelf. And hands up those of you who flick through the pages hoping that with a quick glance, all the wisdom held between the pages will be instantly imparted to you so you'll never have to pick the book up again.

I used to own a shop where I sold lots of metaphysical books, and this was the one Reiki book I would actually encourage fledgling reiki healers to buy. Highly Recommended.

    Mistake in Directions A simple altar can consist of a table with items symbolic of the four elements. You could have a stone or crystal for Earth in the North; (a red candle for Fire in the East {West}); (incense or sage for Air in the South {East}); and a bowl, chalice, or seashell for Water in the West. I usually place a white candle in the center for Spirit. Use the symbols and arrangement you desire. Please re check this...

    This book was really informative. Reiki is not a religion and is not magic but this book showed a nice link to the possibility. I have already learned many of the techniques that are talked about but not in the magical context. The main point that the author reminds the reader is to use your own intuition and do what feels right to you because Reiki is always going to work for the greater good. I was very happy that this point was driven home.

    This is a very informative book and has rekindled (pun intended) my pursuit of my higher self and Reiki energy. I liked the Kindle edition so much that I had to order the book. That way I will have all the information even when the electricity is off. No need to recharge a battery of a real live book. :)

    this book has a lot of good information, but gets a little woo-woo. i'm not a penczak fan; i find his writing style to be overly simplistic and redundant. this book has a lot of good information, but gets a little woo-woo. i'm not a penczak fan; i find his writing style to be overly simplistic and redundant.

    Read this after getting first level attunement. Better than I expected. Doesn't give away methods that should only be taught by a master practitioner, but does some cool things.

    Penczak gives a nice overview of the Reiki system as well as integrating it with traditional Pagan beliefs. Well written and a definite must have for fellow Reiki practitioners.
