Natural Awakenings New York City

Jikiden Reiki from Japan comes to NYC

Practiced for 65 years by Chiyoko Yamaguchi‘s family for first aid and for serious health conditions in Japan, Jikiden Reiki is now available in New York City. Jikiden is a form of Reiki with no western ties and has preserved simply and with clarity the cultural essence of Reiki as a uniquely Japanese form of spiritual healing.

The Shoden course, Reiki I, focuses on the body’s natural healing system, detoxification and on the capacity of the hands to sense levels of toxicity called byosen, which guides each Reiki therapy session. Meditation tools to enhance hand sensitivity are taught along with up-to-date historical grounding. This is Reiki and Light on the Origins of Reiki by Frank Arjava Petter and Tadao Yamaguchi, offers perspectives on “byosen” as well as the unique history of the Yamaguchi’s in carrying on the traditions of Chujiro Hayashi.

Dr. Paula Michal-Johnson, a registered teacher of the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, brings Jikiden to NYC on March 15 & 16 at Manhattan’s Healthy Body NYC, at 1130 Broadway near 26th Street. A University educator for 30 years in health communication, Paula studies with Tadao Yamaguchi and Frank Arjava Petter in Kyoto.
