Founded in 2000 by Chiyoko Sensei and her son Tadeo Yamaguchi to preserve the lineage of Chujiro Hayashi, shihan of Mikao Usui Sensei. The name “Jikiden” means original, not altered. Chiyoko Sensei was initiated by Hayashi Sensei in the late 1930’s when she was 17. Chiyoko Sensei practiced Reiki daily for 65 years until her death in 2003. It is the goal of the Jikiden Reiki Institute to teach Reiki without the western influence and restore the important essences of original Reiki that were lost with WWII.
