Jikiden Reiki Seminars

"Each and every being has an innate ability to heal as a gift from the gods"

Mikao Usui

Jikiden means “traditional” or “directly transmitted or passed down from one’s teacher.”

Jikiden Reiki® brings the essence of Reiki as it was originally practiced in Japan in the 1920's and 30's.

Jikiden Reiki lineage begins with Mikao Usui Sensei, 1865-1926, the founder of Reiki,

to Dr. Chujiro Hayashi Sensei, 1880 – 1940,

to Mrs. Chiyoko Yamaguchi Sensei, 1921 – 2003,

and on to her son, Tadao Yamaguchi Sensei, b. 1952, who is now the head of the

Jikiden Reiki® Institute in Kyoto, Japan.

Because Jikiden Reiki® did not go through Mrs. Hawaya Takata Sensei,

it does not reflect the changes that were a result of the westernization of Reiki.

You will experience Reiki in its original beauty and simplicity.

Cost for the Seminar is $350

Please inquire if you would like to organize a seminar. A minimum of 2 students is required.

Shoden, Level I, is taught over two days.

Both days are full in theory and practice.

You receive two certificates. One in English at the end of class.

The second certificate comes from the Jikiden Institute in  Japan within a month or so and is hand written in Japanese, in the style of certificates originally given to students by Dr. Hayashi
