    DIANE STEIN is a popular and acclaimed healer and the best-selling author of Essential Reiki and 25 other books in the fields of metaphysical healing, women's spirituality, and alternative health. She lives and teaches in Florida.


    Read any good books lately?
    My favorite reading is science fiction, there are new good books coming out every day. Look at Sharon Shinn, Tamora Pierce, Ann Bishop, and so many more talented women fiction writers.

    If you had to boil your book's message down to one sentence, what would it be?
    Serve the Light, trust the Light, make a difference in the world with who you are and what you do.

    What are you working on now?
    I prefer to keep future books a secret until they are finished. No one will know until the manuscript is mailed in.

    Do you eat your vegetables?
    I have been a vegetarian since 1983. I do eat my vegetables.

    If you had a superpower, what would it be?
    Wonder Woman, of course.

    How long did it take you to write this book?
    I have been working with herbs for over 35 years, so you could say it took that long to write it.
    Reiki is an ancient and profoundly simple system of laying on of hands healing derived from Tibetan Buddhism. In the West, Reiki has been kept highly secret for many years. ESSENTIAL REIKI presents full information on all three degrees of this healing system, most of it in print for the first time. Teaching from the perspective that Reiki healing belongs to all people, Diane Stein breaks new ground in her classic guide to this ancient practice. 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.

    • From a Reiki Master - Teacher

      I would recommend this book to anyone preparing for their Level 1 or 2 attunements. Ignoring the author's sometime annoying overuse of the feminine terms for everything, the book still provides a good grounding for anyone sincerely seeking to learn and use Reiki in their life. When I first received my level 1 & 2 attunements, my Master -Teacher recommended this book as required reading, in addition to William Lee Rand's book. Now as a Master - Teacher myself, I also suggest that my beginning students read Ms. Stein's book before they receive their attunement(s).

    • Excellent Resource

      I have read Essential Reiki cover to cover and find it to be an excellent overview of the history and practice of Reiki. It's a great way to prepare for one's attunements or to supplement a class.
