Chapter 1: Reiki: The Art of Channeling Life-Force Energy 25
Some branches of Reiki combine certain New Age practices with Reiki. If you investigate Reiki on the Internet or elsewhere, you might read about Reiki and aliens or Reiki and dolphins. I don’t include that material in this book, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true or valuable!
I do include information on Reiki and crystals (see Chapter 12) and other Western techniques that some people may consider New Age. As with all things, take what you like and leave the rest. You’ll find that Reiki is compati- ble with all religions, practices, or beliefs.
