It was written for those who have done conventional fourth steps in the past and are looking for something different and a way to uncover issues that are not covered in other fourth steps. However, anyone can read this book and get a lot out of it, even if they are not in recovery. “This insightful book shows us how our own lotus can grow out of the mud of addictions and attachments and how to help it unfold into a life of joyful freedom. Thank you, Jeff, for sharing your story and exploring what it means for our stories.” — David Loy, author of Money, Sex, War, Karma; The World Is Made of Stories; and The Great Awakening “This book is a gem. The foundation of Opening the Lotus is Jeff Emerson’s own direct experience, and without a direct experience we cannot guide others on the path. He guides us in an open-hearted and honest way, interlinking the teachings with his own life story; this gives us hope—hope of recovery from any addiction.” — Frans Stiene, co-founder of the International House of Reiki and author of The Inner Heart of Reiki: Rediscovering Your True Self

He explores the etymology of key Reiki terminology and presents a complete discussion of the origins of the symbols used in the second degree, providing new historical, cultural, and spiritual context. He examines the core teachings of Reiki founder Usui Mikao, who taught that Reiki Ryoho enacted healing at the soul level, as well as insights from other important Reiki masters such as Hawayo Takata. Explaining what Reiki is and how it heals, the author outlines the six core characteristics that all varieties of Reiki share, including initiations and the Five Precepts. He details effective hand positions, self-healing exercises, spiritual development meditations, and the Japanese Reiki techniques introduced in first degree and second degree practice. He also explores a number of other techniques that have been adapted by Western lineages, such as aura sweeping, chakra tune-ups, and charging and programming crystals with Reiki. He provides a thorough introduction to the five levels of byosen, the energetic mechanism used to scan an individual’s energy field and locate areas of disharmony, allowing you to increase your ability to sense centers of toxic imbalance as well as begin dislodging them, thereby increasing the effectiveness of Reiki treatment. Offering Reiki tools to transform your life from the inside out, Pearson shows how Reiki Ryoho is a healing system that focuses on the inner and spiritual aspects of your being first, allowing you to polish the heart so it reflects the shining light of the soul.

Narratives of Hope and Resilience for Victims with PTSD

Trauma Recovery - Sessions With Dr. Matt

Trauma Recovery: Sessions with Dr. Matt conveys hope and resilience for trauma victims. Written by a psychologist with 35 years of clinical experience, and a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Between compellingly-written scenes of group, individual and family therapy, the cognitive-behavioral science of PTSD and its treatment is explained. The book movingly describes the collaboration between therapist and clients as they strive to get unstuck from trauma-ravaged lives. Reluctant trauma victims who have avoided treatment or who are having trouble processing life’s catastrophes will find in these pages a “fly-on-the-wall” perspective of how therapy can help. Useful information about overcoming obstacles in treatment is provided while fears about facing trauma are allayed, motivating the reluctant victim to finally seek treatment. The book will also greatly inform motivated patients by providing a thorough, scientifically-sound understanding of PTSD’s nature and treatment. This book should be in every trauma therapist’s office and placed in the hand of each of their PTSD patients.
