In Jikiden Reiki, Shihankaku is the first of the teacher levels. Shihankaku means 'Assistant Teacher' in Japanese. Shihankaku level seminars in Jikiden Reiki are taught only by Tadao Yamaguchi (Jikiden Reiki Institute Representative), Frank Arjava Petter (Jikiden Reiki Institute Vice-Representative) or teachers holding the level of Dai-Shihan (Senior Teacher).

If you are interested in Jikiden Reiki teacher level training, please contact Jotaro and he will assist you in finding a teacher that works for you.

The shoden and okuden levels in Jikiden Reiki provide you with everything that you need to know in order to practice Reiki. If you desire to teach Jikiden Reiki to others, then you need to learn the Shihankaku level. If you do want to share Jikiden Reiki as a teacher, it is recommended that you know the material of the shoden and okuden levels very well. Regular practice, along with knowledge of the previous levels teachings will be very valuable to you as a Jikiden Reiki teacher.
