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 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 in 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. The Jikiden Reiki Association's primary purpose is to promote the teaching and practice of the form of Reiki that Dr. Hayashi learned from Usui and taught The word "Jikiden" means directly handed down without alteration. 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. Mrs. Chiyoko Yamaguchi, the cofounder of Jikiden Reiki took her first 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 teachers taught by the Yamaguchis 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 the world today.

A Very Brief History of Jikiden Reiki

The Usui System of Natural Healing or Reiki is a healing art that anyone can learn and practice. It is a gentle hands-on and distant healing discipline that simply, but powerfully, balances body, mind, heart and spirit using aqn individual's own natural latent healing energy. Reiki is not a religion, but honors and coexists peacefully with all religions and belief systems. Both Jikiden Reiki teaching method is primarily oral and is passed from teacher to student based on their training" in Jikiden Reiki and their personal relationship as a Jikiden Reiki student and a Jikiden Reiki teacher. A thumbnail sketch of Jikiden Reiki's history follows:

Reiki originated in Japan in the 1920's. Mikao Usui, the founder of Reiki, evolved a system of healing he called Reiki. Usui spent the rest of his life up until his death in 1926 practicing and teaching this method of natural healing which involves the laying on of hands, a mental/emotional treatment and distant treatment. Mikao Usui authored the Goakai or precepts of Reiki which were derived from the Waka poetry of the Japanese
Meiji emperor. One of Usui's students, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, a medical doctor and retired Japanese naval officer, continued Usui sensei's work after his death and opened a Reiki clinic and school in Tokyo. A Japanese student of Dr. Hayashi, Chiyoko Yamaguchi, first learned Reiki in 1938 from Chujiro Hayashi at the age of 17. Her uncle Mr. Sugano brought Dr. Hayashi to teach his entire extended family Reiki in Ishikawa, Japan. Chiyoko was later attuned as an Usui Reiki teacher. Chiyoko Yamaguchi spent her whole life treating others using the Reiki Dr. Hayashi had taught her. Her son Tadao Yamaguchi began treating people with Reiki in 1965 at a young age. In the late 1990s, Tadao Yamaguchi and his mother started teaching the Reiki Mrs. Yamaguchi learned from Chujiro Hayashi calling it Jikiden Reiki. Tadao Yamaguchi iss committed to preserving and spreading Jikiden Reiki through the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyu Kai or Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan.
