Bouncing from Maine to Hawaii and back again, Meredith Kendall shares a natural storyteller’s flair in this tantalizing, insightful and often hilarious glimpse into the worlds of lay midwifery, herbal medicine, and natural healing. Reiki Nurse
“Kendall’s style is conversational and refreshingly random as she tells stories of her early nursing days. She provided home care to patients for fourteen years, driving 500 miles a week through the Maine forests. Her stories of the patients she cared for and the impact they had on her are fascinating snapshots of a nurse’s life.
“Leaving the home health field, she worked the night shift in a small hospital. During this time she began exploring the spiritual side of her work as a healer, and getting in touch with her personal energy sources. After reading a book on reiki, which she explains as an ancient tradition that channels healing energy from the universe, she began to study reiki.
“Many of the ideas presented in “Reiki Nurse” are not usually “dreamt of in our philosophy,” but this immensely readable book will make you glad that modern medicine makes room for the spiritual aspect of healing–and that committed nurses like Kendall are there to lead the way.”
