JIKIDEN REIKI TEACHER TRAINING SEMINARS

In Reiki, the teacher level is called Shinpiden 神秘傳 (mystery teachings). Traditionally, to become a teacher was not a simple process. Students had to meet certain requirements before they would be allowed to move on to the next level. This is the manner in which it was done by both Usui sensei and Hayashi sensei. This way of progression allows for the development of competent teachers who are well versed and experienced in the materials they teach. In Jikiden Reiki, we also follow this traditional structure. Jikiden Reiki teachers are required to display competence and commitment. As they meet certain prerequisites, they are allowed to take on more responsibilities as teachers. 

Jikiden Reiki teacher levels are -

SHIHAN-KAKU 師範格 (assistant teacher) can teach Shoden level seminars.

SHIHAN  師範 (teacher) can teach both the Shoden and Okuden level seminars.

DAI-SHIHAN 大師範 (senior teacher) can teach the Shoden, Okuden and Shihan-kaku level seminars

There are many Dai-Shihan teachers around the World who can teach the Shihan-kaku level of Jikiden Reiki. Currently, Jikiden Reiki seminars for the levels above Shihan-kaku are only taught by:

Frank Arjava Petter (Daihyo-daiko - Vice Representative of the Jikiden Reiki Institute). He teaches - Shoden, Okuden, Shihan-kaku and Shihan level seminars.

Tadao Yamaguchi (Daihyo - Representative of the Jikiden Reiki Institute). He teaches all levels of Jikiden Reiki, including awarding the Dai-Shihan level.
