Women in Reiki

Lifetimes dedicated to healing in 1930s Japan and today

“Reiki fascinates people around the world, yet little is known about those who forged the pathway to bring this Japanese healing method to us.  We decided to write the stories of the women who carried Reiki through the most challenging of times in Japan to the women living Reiki today.”

Amanda Jayne and Silke Kleemann

"The wonderfully researched and eloquently written Women in Reiki celebrates the love, the lives and the efforts of women who gave Reiki the face it has today. The book tells the life-stories of countless women from both East and West who dedicated their lives to the practice and teaching of Reiki from the 1930s until today.

The authors playfully weave the fabric of past and present into a material so smooth and warm that it warms the heart, all the while the intellect is amply stimulated and the reader arrives at a deep understanding of the essence of Reiki and its cultural background steeped in Japanese history.


A great pleasure to read, Women in Reiki is a must in every Reiki practitioner’s library."
