"Jikiden" means "directly passed down" in Japanese.
Jikiden Reiki Institute was established in Japan, founded by Chiyoko Yamaguchi and her son Tadao Yamaguchi. It is an authentic Japanese Reiki that hasn't been influenced by other healing modality nor other culture. This means that nothing has been added or amended. It is taught in the same way that Chujiro Hayashi taught Chiyoko Yamaguchi and her family in 1930s.
Focusing primarily on treatment and with a deep Japanese history and culture. It feels pure, simple and grounded and it is extremely effective.
With its strong and fascinating background of Japanese culture, it is there to become a part of the life of whoever chooses to learn. Anyone can learn this natural ability to promote healing in themselves and others and no one person is more worthy than another. In fact, this is a quote from the founder of this method, Mikao Usui.
"I have been practicing Western Reiki (Usui Shiki Ryoho Style) since 1997 and am currently Advanced level (level 3) in this system. When a friend in karate told me about someone trained in traditional Japanese Reiki, I was very interested. I have just completed Okuden (second level) in Jikiden Reiki with Mari Okazaki and am very pleased that I was introduced to her. It was a wonderful experience. I like Jikiden Reiki’s simple, down to earth, approach to Reiki. Mari is a very good instructor. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and very well organized. She is also is very accurate and precise about making sure that her students get it right. It is refreshing to have someone that can clearly explain the symbols and their origins as well teaching the Jikiden Reiki way of doing energy work. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning about Reiki. "
