Listing of teachers who received their Gokai

 An emotional moment and very memorable is always, when a reiki practitioner achieves teacher level.

As shihan-kaku (first level teacher) they have the right to purchase their personal Gokai and as shihan (master/teacher) they are obliged to present the 5 life principles (Gokai) in all their seminars and in public events.

I was very happy and grateful, when i received mine in our institute (Kenkyukai) in Kyoto (shihan no. 100 in the world in May 2008). 🌞

Here the listing (May 2016) of the teachers, who received their Gokai:

Why could it be beneficial to repeat a Reiki training/seminar?

I frequently get asked by new students as well as by other reiki practitioners, why we (jikiden reiki teachers and our institute) recommend, to repeat the seminars or at least parts of it as well as Reiju (attunements), additionally to frequent practise.

One part of having received a Reiju means you can transmit Reiki to anybody. Knowing what it exactly is, involves a lot more. You learn that in the seminar.

Once you are “fully” attuned, that is something nobody can ever take away from you; though you will notice that more practise gives you a better understanding of what you sense during a reiki session. You might even get the feeling, that your energy flow raises.

Usui sensei recommended to all of his practitioners (even that they were sharing/giving Reiki frequently), to receive Reiju at least once a month. Not, because it starts to vanish with the time (when you did the seminar, you know that this is not the point), but because it keeps you stronger.

Even as a shihan (teacher) i personally love to receive and to exchange Reiju once in a while with a fellow shihan or – if the opportunity comes up – with my teachers.  Continue reading Why could it be beneficial to repeat a Reiki training/seminar?

How is Jikiden Reiki different from Usui Reiki?

“A frequently asked question by Western trained reiki practitioners. My collegue Gisela Stewart from simplyjikidenreiki explains some of the similarities and differences. “

Simply Jikiden Reiki

Mikao Usui SenseiAnd what would an Usui Reiki Master get from taking this class? How often have I been asked this question in person or by email. This time, though, I have been asked in a public way, so I thought I had perhaps best answer in public, too. First of all: Jikiden Reiki is Usui Reiki, as this simple hand-healing method started with Mikao Usui in Japan in 1922. ‘Jikiden’ means directly transmitted, and in the Japanese language and culture, is a term that refers to a traditional art form,  passed on carefully from teacher to student without changes.

Chiyoko and Tadao YamaguchiChiyoko Yamaguchi, who had learned Reiki from one of the teachers trained by Usui Sensei, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, and her son Tadao decided to pass on what they had learned from Dr. Hayashi after they had met with many Western Reiki practitioners and realised how much the practice had changed, with so many…
