Jikiden Reiki Training

Jikiden Reiki® is the "direct teaching" of Reiki presented with credibility and clarity from authentic Japanese lineage.

This lineage goes from Dr. Hayashi to Mrs. Chiyoko Yamaguchi, Tadao’s (current President of Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai) mother, who learned Reiki in 1938. Because this lineage has not gone through Mrs. Takata, it lacks the Westernization of Reiki.

In these classes (called seminars), you will experience Reiki in its original beauty and simplicity. Because Jikiden Reiki is free from Western influence, it differs from “Western” style of Reiki in approach, attitude, and ideas. Its roots go back almost to the discovery of Reiki itself.

Jikiden Reiki® is for anyone interested in learning Reiki and for current practitioners who wish to deepen their practice & understanding.

What you will discover:

  • It is unique - A Japanese Reiki with NO western ties.
  • It is much more than a relaxing therapy 
  • A deep Jikiden Reiki practice with a history of success with chronic illness.
  • A proven approach that is safe and effective.
  • An effective treatment option for alleviating pain, pre-op and post-op surgery recovery, anxiety, skin conditions and posttraumatic stress.
  • A simple, non-religious therapeutic treatment that works
  • Includes ideas and methods not previously taught in the West
Accreditation by the Jikiden Reiki® Kenkyukai (Institute) in Kyoto, Japan .  Certificates in Japanese are sent directly from the Institute in Kyoto, Japan.

"Laura is one of my greatest teachers in life so it was an easy decision to have her be my teacher. I wanted the purest form of Reiki taught to me. Laura lives this lifestyle and exemplifies that art. She explained everything as many times as I needed. When I felt overwhelmed and wanted to quit she didn't let me. She dug in deeper and worked harder with me to explain and teach. This class and Laura has changed my life. I look forward to repeating this class with her to deepen my teachings. I can't say enough about what a beautiful soul she is."

"Laura is an amazing teacher. She is thorough, and passionate, and patient with all questions. I am grateful to have Laura teaching Jikiden Reiki."

"Take this class! Laura has a wealth of knowledge and experience and approaches this with a desire to teach and is rational in her approach...Just a wonderful experience"

"...I have been certified in Western Reiki Level I & II. It seems that Jikiden is so much more simplified...Laura's teaching skills and experience are tremendous. Her knowledge is overwhelming. This is a real inspiration to learn more and practice, practice, practice. I would recommend Laura to anyone to have a Jikiden Reiki experience. I loved the practice part tremendously and all Laura's tips to improve."

"Even though I have been practicing westernized Reiki for about 17 years, I was intrigued that Laura was offering the Jikiden Reiki, a calling towards it if you will. Jikiden Reiki seems and feels more authentic and pure at its core. The benefit is the simplicity of it but the challenge is not over complicating it and getting out of my own way to let Reiki do its thing. ..Anyone who wanted to advance their self-care, self work, and healing would benefit from working with Laura. Laura is an incredible teacher and she teaches from her heart and with passion for living the Reiki principles. It was so helpful being able to work with clients hands on and be able to do the work on different people."
