Kathleen Prasad is a teacher by trade but recognizes the animals are all of our teachers. In her book, Reiki for Dogs, she states she believes we are all stewards of the animals on this planet. Kathleen empowers everyone to introduce Reiki to every member of our family even the ones with fur. Learning Reiki and practicing this healing method will profoundly deepen the human animal bond; Reiki is described as the language of nature, “spiritual energy” that through our compassionate intention we can open up a line of communication to the other species we share this planet with. Kathleen writes that Reiki always finds the origin of health problems, dis ease, or imbalance for the highest good and rebalances as well as clearing energy blockages. The importance of daily meditation for the Reiki practitioner is not only to make a better spiritual energy communicator but to help oneself to self healing. Learning to ground yourself and to utilize the 5 precepts will help us all become the good person our dogs think we are! This book includes some case files and helps the reader understand that this is a form of channeling healing that anyone with a compassionate intention can do. No longer do you have to feel left on the sidelines when a situation requires your aid. Reiki is channeling universal energy for healing at the highest level, with compassionate intention. Reiki is never a downward energy always uplifting and always for the highest good.This book gives you an in soul look based on the personal experience of our country’s top Animal Reiki teacher, Kathleen Prasad.True healers don’t always wear white coats.

Reading Reiki For Dogs and writing this review is a joy. Kathleen Prasad has written a book for everyone from a seasoned practitioner to those new to energy/spiritual healing with animals. It is not just a ‘how to’ book. It is a brave and beautiful sharing of wisdom experienced through Kathleen’s personal journey of self-healing and of her deep connection with the dogs in her life. The content is extensive yet easily grasped through personal stories, case histories, quotes and an interesting format. Kathleen writes in her closing chapter that “Whether we realize it or not, our journey on this earth begins with the animals and will end with the animals.” Reading and incorporating the spirit of “Reiki For Dogs” into our lives can support us on this journey.
