There is a an unfolding dynamic cosmology developing around the world. This emerging worldview blends some of the knowledge and discipline of modern science with ancient and time honored spiritual beliefs and practices. One Degree Beyond is an excellent example of how these two complementary areas of inquiry can bring humankind to a new and much needed understanding.
Make no mistake. Although it does put some of the more recent trends in scientific inquiry and research in perspective and does establish that the traditional view, which had science and religion at odds, is outmoded and unnecessary, this is not a book about new science. Rather it is an invitation to a personal exploration with global implications. One key to the development of a new consciousness is Reiki, an ancient approach to healing rediscovered and formalized by a Japanese doctor, Dr. Mikao Usui, during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The tradition established by Dr. Usui continues to this day and Reiki has grown in popularity.
The author of One Degree Beyond, Janeanne Narrin, is a trained Reiki Master of the Usui tradition with over ten years experience as a teacher and practitioner of this simple approach to the relief of pain and suffering. Narrin also has an extensive background in management consulting for large corporations and consequently has wide experience dealing with stress and anxiety in the corporate workplace. She is a an experienced and whole systems-inspired practitioner who presents Reiki, the ancient art of "hands-on" healing, in the wider framework of energy medicine, and proposes not only do we have bodies and minds, but we also partake in and embody the very energies that create the universe, moment by moment a new. One Degree Beyond elucidates the very practical relationship between Reiki and modern scientific thinking, and uses the tools of self inquiry to open new doors of perception.
In inviting readers to explore possibilities, or move beyond what is apparent, Narrin is encouraging us to attempt to focus our thoughts and actions in ways which honor both our personal potentials and our connection to all of the other elements and forces of Nature. Thus, One Degree Beyond is a primer for action. It is gentle and wise, does not proselytize, and one needn't be a Reiki practitioner to derive its benefits. It is full of helpful hints, upbeat suggestions, and engaging exercises to expedite a personal journey into health consciousness and heightened spiritual awareness.

Janeanne Narrin's One Degree Beyond is an engaging introduction to Reiki, the rapidly growing art form that has proven to be an avenue for many to alleviate tension, manage stress, and expand powers of perception. Although One Degree Beyond does not claim to be a course in Reiki, it is designed like a textbook, with sidebars and review questions, making it an easy-to-follow guide to discovering Reiki as both a methodology and a life-force energy. Narrin's anecdotes knit together the metaphysical concepts behind Reiki, and offer a glimpse at a new world waiting to be discovered by those willing to explore one degree beyond the apparent boundaries of our lives. --Brian PattersonFrom the Publisher:
