Hawayo Takata: How Reiki changed her life and our lives!
Joyce Winough, a member of the Archive Team and Reiki Master who lived in Hawaii for many years, will bring a gift of a power point presentation of Hawayo Takata’s life in Hawaii, her journey to Japan, and the decades of her Reiki Journey that is seen through the letters, photos, certificates, and other important documents that the Archive contains. Participants of this seminar will be able to discuss, ask questions, and experience the amazing life of Takata Sensei as Joyce carries the local understanding of Hawaii and its unique influence on our Reiki practice.
So as most of us knows brought Hawayo Takata Reiki to the west in the late 1930’s. For the next forty years of her life, Takata held this practice by giving treatments and teaching thousands students in Hawaii and the mainland US. Hawayo Takata’s steadfastness, her ultimate trust in Reiki, and her passion to share this gift have brought Reiki students of all practices to where we are now.
After Takata’s death in 1980, her daughter Alice Furumoto gathered her mother’s personal papers and photos in boxes and gave these to Phyllis, as her grandmother’s successor. Now, after thirty five years these artifacts have been brought to the light of day. In 2014, on July 14, Phyllis, Paul and Susan Mitchell, Justin Stein, Robert Fueston and Joyce Winough met in Green Valley, Arizona to open the boxes! They found newspaper articles, handwritten letters and never before seen photos that give us an experience of the many facets Hawayo Takata. She was not only the lineage bearer of Usui Shiki Ryoho but also a recognized and respected healer, influential community member, and a successful professional woman.
Then next day, we will continue our exploration of Takata’s legacy by exploring how we can hold the teachings she received in Japan to the evolution of our present day practice.
Day 2 - Sunday, March 11, 2018
The 4 Aspects and 9 Elements of Usui Shiki Ryoho.
This is an experience of how the Aspects and Elements work together to form a spiritual practice that expands our understanding of ‘What it is to be a human being’. Joyce is an initiated master of Phyllis Furumoto since 2002 and has been consciously living these Aspect and Elements. This awareness of the system has brought Joyce to a deeper place in her personal Reiki practice and she is excited to share her experiences with you.
Since Hawayo Takata first brought the teachings and practice from Japan in 1938, the lineage of Usui Shiki Ryoho has spread throughout the world. As her successor Phyllis Furumoto, has been teaching, defining, holding and transmitting the system of Reiki that her grandmother, Hawayo Takata, passed on to her. Usui Shiki Ryoho is defined in four aspects en nine elements and are meant to support Reiki students and practioners to go deeper, understand more fully and enhance communication of this practice. The four aspects describes the nature of the practice and how it touches our life.
The nine elements describe the form of the practice: how it is taught, how it is received and how it can be practiced for maximum benefit.
