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 this 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.
