Mrs. Yamaguchi's legacy: Jikiden Reiki

Chiyoko Yamaguchi was only 17 years old when she learned Reiki. The year was 1938, the place was Daishoji, Ishikawa, Japan, and her teacher was Chujiro Hayashi, one of the original students of Reiki founder Mikao Usui. Many members of Mrs. Yamaguchi's family also practiced Reiki, and it was her uncle, by then authorized by Hayashi to teach, who trained and initiated her as a master. Mrs. Yamaguchi didn't start teaching Reiki until she was in her 70s. After she died in 2003 at the age of 82, her students, including her son Tadao, have continued her lineage, now known as Jikiden Reiki.

Amanda Jayne was one of Mrs. Yamaguchi's students, a neighbor during her four years living in Kyoto, and she now travels the world as a Jikiden Reiki teacher. On Wednesday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m., her travels will bring her to The Reiki Dojo in New York, where she will tell us about the origins of Reiki, Mrs. Yamaguchi's legacy, and show us rare photographs of Usui and Hayashi from the 1920s. 

Spaces are extremely limited and advance reservations are essential. For more information, email or call 917-512-1330. Admission is $20 for this special Reiki Dojo event.

Amanda's talk on Jikiden is only one of the special events coming up in The Reiki Dojo's First Annual Cherry Blossom Festival, which will take place April 15 to May 13 at various locations in the New York City area as well as online. As the cherry blossoms here begin to open, we'll be revealing more about the festivities. We'll be celebrating not only springtime, but the second anniversary of The Reiki Dojo and the third anniversary of The Reiki Digest.

The Reiki Dojo is the home base of The Reiki Digest. Both are divisions of Healing Movement LLC.
