Memories of Chiyoko Yamaguchi sensei

When you talk about traditional (jikiden) reiki, there always pops up the name of our beloved sensei Chiyoko Yamaguchi, direct reiki descendant and student of Dr. Hayashi sensei and the co-founder (together with her son Tadao Yamaguchi) of the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai in Kyoto.

Everybody who was lucky to have met her and studied with her described her as a lovely, warm hearted and also very open minded and curious lady. Looking at her pictures and her beautiful smile makes you feel directly loved and full of inner peace.

Thank you Chiyoko sensei for sharing your love for reiki with your son Tadao sensei and all of us.

Have a look at THIS LINK  with lots of photos and personal comments about her.
