About Jikiden Reiki Workshop

At the 5 day Jikiden Reiki Shoden and Okuden Class, every participant will receive 5 Reiju (attunements) from Frank Arjava Petter himself and full training in the original and authentic Japanese Reiki techniques, practices, ethics and spirituality.

You will learn the Reiki- Symbols in their original form. Upon completion of the workshop you will be given a Certificate from Arjava himself which enables you to practice Jikiden Reiki if you choose to.

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.

The Jikiden Workshop is divided into two parts:

Shoden (Beginner Degree - Reiki One) and Okuden (the Middle Degree - Reiki Two).

A daily delicious vegetarian lunch is included in your Jikiden Reiki Class fee. Plus morning and afternoon tea each day as well.
