In "The Nature of Reiki: A Path of Inclusion," John David Sparks connects the character and core of Reiki's ability to illuminate our own true nature with the beauty and joy inherent in life itself.
Using a synthesis of some of the world's most influential teachings, Sparks shows us through his own experience that Reiki is more than a technique of hands-on healing, it is also a path of light and Love. Embracing its nature shows us how to balance our life and work through the problems, illnesses, and issues that keep us from being at peace.
