The Nature of BEing: A Healing Journey 

Meditation and Reiki play a prominent and restorative role in Lori’s fourth book! Synopsis: Kindness, compassion, charity—or pure love—these are qualities we are taught to share with others in building a community of care.  But what about with ourselves?

In her fourth book, a poignant and mindful teaching memoir, Founder of The Reiki Space and Reiki Master Teacher/RMT, Lori McClellan tells us for the first time of her journey with a serious illness, a re-discovery of wholeness, and what it means to love ourselves unconditionally.

Through an artist’s perspective, readers join in a personal and insightful narrative of trial and triumph, connection and clarity, framed by the beauty of nature, and the wonders of our natural state of being—living our inner truth and embracing our authentic self.

This special edition in paperback and Kindle formats offers cover art designed by the author-artist, and a bonus section of her original guided meditation and poetry.
