It seems appropriate that I finished reading this book on the day that I received certification in Level 1 Reiki.
This book was recommended to me during a session with an animal chaplain after the unexpected death of my youngest cat, Teddy, due to an aneurysm. I was asked by my work volunteering with shelter animals and Rev. Nancy Schluntz suggested that Reiki might be useful to my work in that environment. She recommended that I start by reading this book.
Honestly, I was almost immediately overcome by a sense of both calm and urgency to begin doing this work myself during the time I read the text. Authors Kathleen Prasad and Elizabeth Fulton, both Reiki Masters, share their experience working with pets, wildlife, rescued animals in sanctuary, and their own growth as practitioners as a result.
This book is a loving look at the benevolent healing properties of Reiki and how it benefits our animal friends. Interestingly enough, it was also the first book on Reiki that the Master who trained me read, and she was led to begin training herself as a result.
Highly recommended for those who want to learn a new way of healing.
