Some good links for exploring more about Reiki:
Website of the International Center for Reiki Training. The link above takes you to a good condensed history of Mikao Usui. There are many other articles and stories on this site that make for good reading.
- Reiki Dharma
I recommend starting at the Newsletter Archive page. This is the site of Frank Arjava Petter, with whom I studied Jikiden Reiki. He has done years of research on the origins of Reiki, and his writings clarify
the true meaning and practice of Reiki, as well as dispelling myths.
- The Reiki Threshold
You'll find tons of information here about some different forms of Reiki, as well as a page with audio clips of a native Japanese speaker pronouncing various commonly used phrases, for those who want to sound really authentic when speaking about Reiki!
- The Benefits of Japanese Reiki
Here's a page with links to various sources of information about Reiki.
