“This long-awaited book by one of the original Reiki masters is a skillful blend of Reiki theory and method, as well as history… a valuable contribution to the study of Reiki in the west and belongs in the library of every student of the healing arts.” – Sacred Pathways
John Harvey Gray became a Reiki Master Instructor in 1976. Since then for over 35 years he actively taught and practiced Reiki – longer than any other living teacher in the West. John, who passed away January 12, 2011 at age 93, took his entire Reiki training in 1976 with Mrs. Hawayo Takata, who brought Reiki to the West from Japan. In his career,he conducted well over 600 Reiki classes, and earned a reputation as an outstanding teacher, and as a practitioner of the highest integrity.
John’s wife, Lourdes Gray, is also a Reiki Master Instructor certified by John from Hawayo Takata. In their book, Hand to Hand, John and Lourdes tell their stories, and write of how Reiki came into and remained a part of their life and practice. They also tell the background and development of Reiki in the West, and offer up practical, time-tested guidelines for anyone who chooses to study Reiki.
