Welcome to the Jikiden Reiki Association! The Jikiden Reiki Association is an international community of Jikiden Reiki practitioners and teachers supporting each other in their practice and teaching of this form of Usui Reiki. The Jikiden Reiki Association is dedicated to promoting communication among Jikiden pracitioners and Jikiden teachers and to providing information about the teaching and traditional practice of a simple, effective and original form of Usui Reiki  taught by Dr. Chujiro Hayashi to Wasaburo Sugano and his extended family in Ishikawa, Japan in the 1930s. Dr. Hayashi learned Reiki and the Reiki Gokai or precepts directly from Mikao Usui the founder of Reiki and was one of his 22 Reiki teachers or shihans. Mrs. Chiyoko Yamaguchi, the cofounder of Jikiden Reiki took her first Shoden Reiki seminar from Chujiro Hayashi in Ishikawa, Japan, in 1938 at the age of 17 and she practiced and taught Reiki in Japan until she died in 2003.

The Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai was cofounded by Chiyoko Yamaguchi and her son Tadao Yamaguchi. Mr. Yamaguchi and Jikiden Reiki teachers or shihans taught by the Yamaguchis and Frank Arjava Petter are currently teaching Jikiden Reiki seminars worldwide. Tadao Yamaguchi's highly recommended book Light on the Origins of Reiki: A Handbook for Practicing the Original Reiki of Usui and Hayashi gives a Japanese spiritual, historical and cultural context to the practice and origins of Reiki in Japan and in the world today.

The word "Jikiden" means directly handed down" in Japanese. Jikiden Reiki is closely aligned with the Reiki Gokai (Precepts) for Health and Happiness authored by Mikao Usui and its center is the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai or Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan. The Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai is the center for the teaching and practice of Jikiden Reiki.

Further Jikiden Reiki Studies beyond Shoden and Okuden

If after completing Jikiden Reiki Shoden and Okuden, you wish to teach otehrs how to use Jikiden Reiki, then you may want to become a Jikiden teacher or Shihan. There are initially two levels of Jikiden Reiki teacher: Shihan Kaku or Jikiden Reiki apprentice teacher and Shihan or Jikiden Reiki teacher. Jikiden students wishing to teach Jikiden Reiki seminars must know the contents of the Shoden and Okuden seminars completely and be able to recite the Gokai (the Five Reiki Principles) in Japanese.

Shihan Kaku or Apprentice Teacher: the first level of Jikiden Reiki Teacher

If you intend to take the Shihan Kaku  or apprentice teacher seminar, you must attend at least two Shoden and Okuden seminars, one of which is ideally taken with Tadao Yamaguchi, theco-founder of Jikiden Reiki, or another Shihan that he has designated as Dai Shihan and authorized to teach the Shihan Kaku  level.  You must also fulfill the treatment requirements below. The goal is that the Shihan Kaku student feels confident and is competent to teach the material involved in teaching a Shoden or first level Jikiden Reiki seminar.  Shihan Kaku  students are exprected to be well prepared so that they maintain a high standard as a Jikiden Reiki teacher.

A Shihan Kaku  or assistant teacher can teach the Shoden level seminar. In order to apply to take the Shihan Kaku seminar, a Jikiden Reiki student must first treat at least 40 people hands-on For a minimum of 120 hours and document each treatment by a  short synopsis for each treatment.  Like all Jikiden Reiki students all Shihan Kakus are centrally registered with the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan and an application form is required.. A recommended way to keep track of Jikiden treatments is the linked treatmentrecord.xls.

Jikiden Reiki Shihan: the second level of Jikiden Reiki Teacher

After teaching at least 10 student Jikiden Reiki Shoden over a period of at least six months to a year or more and obtaining written feedback from at least 10 Jikiden Shoden students, a Shihan Kaku  or apprentice teacher may apply to take a Shihan seminar and to become a Jikiden Reiki Shihan or Teacher. A Jikiden Reiki Shihan may teach both the Shoden and Okuden level Jikiden seminars. Part of becoming a Shihan involves ordering and purchasing the Gokai No Sho scroll and pictures of Usui-sensei, Hayashi-sebsei and Chiyoko-sensei from the Jikiden Reiki Institute. These items are exhibited at each Jikiden Reiki seminar a Shihan teaches. The current cost of the Gokai No Sho and the pictures as well the Shihan Kaku and Shihan seminars and the pictures can be obtained by contacting the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan.
