Who are we?
The Reiki Alliance is an international community of Reiki Masters practicing and teaching Usui Shiki Ryoho (translation from Japanese: the Usui System of Reiki Healing). We consider ourselves as stewards of Usui Shiki Ryoho by maintaining the time-honored form passed through the direct spiritual lineage of Mikao Usui, Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, Phyllis Lei Furumoto, and Johannes Reindl.
In 1982 masters initiated by both Hawayo Takata and Phyllis Furumoto were invited to Hawaii for a meeting. The group who came to Hawaii acknowledged Phyllis Lei Furumoto as Hawayo Takata's successor. They decided to meet again in 1983 in British Columbia. During this meeting, The Reiki Alliance was founded to honor the system taught by Hawayo Takata with continued stewardship of this practice.
What is our mission?
The mission of The Reiki Alliance is to honor and practice Usui Shiki Ryoho, acknowledge the spiritual lineage, support one another and deepen our experience as masters.
What is our commitment?
We aspire to live our mastery by:
- realizing the spiritual Precepts of Usui Shiki Ryoho in our daily lives
- practicing Reiki by giving and receiving treatments
- continuing our professional training
- pursuing our ongoing personal and spiritual growth
- recognizing as a part of mastery: being a student, a teacher, a mentor, an initiator
We choose to be a part of a community of Reiki Masters because we wish to explore the path of mastery not only as individuals, but also as part of a community of peers.
As a community we share professional standards and a code of ethics as well as our common practice.
