Animals are naturally receptive to the Reiki energy and tend to gravitate towards it readily. In Reiki for Dogs, Kathleen Prasad explores how this gentle and natural, yet powerful, modality can help dogs as well as their humans. Drawing from her experience of working with pets and teaching animal Reiki to others, Prasad offers tips and tricks for getting started, step-by-step examples of how to conduct a Reiki session with dogs, and real-life case studies of dogs helped by Reiki. But this is not just a book for Reiki practitioners, or those who are interested in the modality. It is also a book about what can happen when we connect with dogs on a spiritual level, and how this connection can enhance and deepen the bond with these special companions. Prasad makes the case that this healing therapy not only helps the dog but also helps the dog’s guardian. Like Prasad, I’m a firm believer that animals come into our lives to teach us, and Reiki is one way to help us open to allowing the lessons in. The book provides plenty of exercises to guide readers on their own journey of connecting with energy, as well as examples of how Prasad and other Reiki practitioners have helped the dogs they’ve treated with issues ranging from illness to abuse to end of life transitions. Whether you’re a seasoned Reiki practitioner, just curious about Reiki or energy healing in general, or simply want to connect with your dog on a deeper level, this book will provide inspiration and guidance.
