JIKIDEN REIKI 17 – 21 NOV 2020 9.30 – 5.30PM HAMILTON

‘Jikiden Reiki’ is Reiki Teaching from the original authentic Japanese lineage

Jikiden Reiki Workshop hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm. The workshop language is English. Handouts in English will be provided

At the 5 day Jikiden Reiki Shoden and Okuden Class, every participant will receive 5 Reiju (attunements) from Frank Arjava Petter himself. You will learn the Reiki- Symbols in their original form. Upon completion of the workshop you will be given a certificate.

The Japanese word ‘Jikiden’ means ‘direct transmission’. This lineage goes from Usui Sensei to Hayashi Sensei and to Chiyoko Yamaguchi Sensei who learned Reiki in 1938, and practiced the next 65 years! Because this lineage has not gone through Mrs. Takata it lacks the Westernization of Reiki as it is taught in the Western World. You will experience Reiki in its original beauty and simplicity.

What you learn in the workshop is for your eyes only

Please be aware of the fact that the Jikiden Reiki Institute Japan permits only registered Teachers of the Jikiden Reiki Institute to teach Jikiden Reiki. What you learn in the workshop is for your eyes only
