Welcome to the internet home of the cleverly titled Reiki with Jotaro. We are located in Rochester, Minnesota and provide Reiki treatment sessions, Reiki practice opportunities and training seminars in Jikiden Reiki, the only known source for the original, unchanged style of Reiki as it was practiced by the founder, Mikao Usui and his prominent student Chujiro Hayashi.
Reiki with Jotaro is one of only a few locations in Minnesota to learn Jikiden Reiki. We are fully authorized to conduct training seminars as an official branch of the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai (Institute) of Kyoto Japan.
Jotaro's own Jikiden Reiki training has been with both Frank Arjava Petter (Vice-Representative of the Institute) and Tadao Yamaguchi (Representative of the Institute). He takes great efforts to maintain the standards of the Institute in all that he does.
A primary goal of what we do is to provide Reiki training to all interested with hope that the practice of Reiki will become more common in our society.
WHAT WE DO
Reiki with Jotaro offers reiki treatment sessions and training opportunities in authentic Japanese Reiki with a heavy emphasis on tradition and ethics.
We are committed to the development of our students and the fostering of a diverse Reiki community. We strongly believe that Reiki is for everyone.
What is Reiki?
To Westerners, this answer can seem a bit complex. Reiki is two things. It is a Japanese word that describes a form of Universal energy. It is also a word that today is used in a casual manner to talk about a system of teachings that utilize Reiki energy for healing and personal development.
Developed in 1922 by Mikao Usui, Reiki (the system) was originally called Shinshin Kaizen Usui Reiki Ryoho 心身改善臼井靈氣療法, after he experienced an enlightenment while meditating and fasting on Kurama Yama (mountain) outside of Kyoto Japan. Usui sensei found methods that can utilize the Reiki energy of the Universe to assist the body in healing and recovery from injury and illness. In healing, the Reiki energy works along with the body's natural healing systems to recover.
As a method of personal development, Reiki can bring about changes in our thinking and lifestyle as we follow the path towards enlightenment. In this way, Reiki can be a spiritual practice for those who learn it.
