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
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.
