The Reiki I&II manual doesn’t include the symbols. Because of this you can use it to teach just Reiki I by using only those chapters that deal with Reiki I. When the student is ready for Reiki II, they will already have the manual making it easy for them to take the class. Many have used this manual to teach Reiki I&II separately for years. But of course it can be used to teach them together in one class as well.
