Gendai Reiki is one of the more interesting methods of Reiki in Japan.  It's originator, Mr. Hiroshi Doi (Doi-sensei to his students) , is a member of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (the original Reiki society) in Japan, and author of the book Iyashino Gendai Reiki-ho (Modern Reiki Method For Healing). His school of Reiki is called Gendai Reiki Healing Kyokai.  "Ho" means method or technique,  and "Gendai" means modern.  So Gendai Reiki Ho means Modern Reiki Method. It is mainly a Japanese style of Reiki. 

Since 2001 Doi-sensei has been teaching Gendai Reiki master level outside Japan as part of the annual Usui Reiki Ryoho International conferences (held in Vancouver, Toronto, Kyoto, Madrid, Denmark). However Doi-sensei  seems to be no longer offering his training outside Japan.

Note that Japanese teachers place more emphasis on their Reiki energy lineage, than on their teaching or training lineage.

Having studied with Richard Rivard of Vancouver, B.C., Canada who has sponsored his workshops in Canada (URRI 1999 and URRI 2002) I feel I can provide you with a good perspective on the Gendai Reiki approach because I use Mr. Rivard's manual and teaching methods.  Mr Rivard is one of the people who is most familiar with this method outside of Japan.    The Gendai Reiki manual (with photos) is a much improved version and greatly assists the student to get a better and wider understudying of this approach.  With my additional training from Mr. Rivard in the URR Gakkai style of teaching, I can offer a wider scope on the Gakkai aspects of the Gendai Reiki training.

Gendai Reiki is based mainly on the methods used in the original Reiki society (Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai)  - including some of the older techniques no longer taught.  Also, Doi-sensei adds in other concepts and methods from other forms of Japanese Reiki, Western Reiki and other healing disciplines he has learned.  He likes to be specific about what is original Reiki, and what is not, so the student doesn't get confused.  Much of the philosophical concepts in the material are not part of Western Reiki and may interest those who already have Reiki training.  Gendai Reiki is presented more as a spiritual practice which has healing effects as an adjunct to the practice rather than simply a healing modality as is the case with most Reiki training.

Certified Gendai Reiki Ho Shihans (teachers) teach Gendai Reiki in 4 levels just as does Doi-sensei, and they use translations of his original material.  The 4 levels are Shoden, Okuden, Shinpiden and Gokuikaiden (the Master level).

Typically in the original Gendai Reiki Ho Shihan class the student is offered only the final "Integrated Attunement."  In my class, I also add in the attunements to each of the first 3 levels of training as well, giving the student a more complete experience of this system. 


Note that enrollment in my Gendai Reiki Ho Shihan class is limited to those who have already received certification in at least a Reiki 3/Master class with me or another Reiki teacher. The class is available only in a live format with me. (see below for the distant class format - Gendai-Ki Reiki)  For information on possible scheduling click here.  If there isn't a class scheduled and you are interested in one click here as I do teach private classes.

Investment for this live class is:  $600 if 30 days or less before class begins.  Pre-registration required with $100 non-refundable deposit.  If registration and $100 non-refundable deposit is received 30 days before the start of class total cost is $550.  There may also be other price breaks when live/in-person classes are scheduled.

This workshop is an unparalleled opportunity to experience and learn the traditional Reiki techniques which are often not available in the Western World and includes the URR techniques referenced above.  All participants receive 2 very extensive manuals, unlimited support from me and a beautiful 2 sided certificate which is suitable for framing.



Gendai-Ki Reiki

If a student chooses to study this program at home and not in a live class, then the transmission of the Gendai Reiki energy will be achieved via distant attunements, arranged at a suitable time with me, and performed as if you and I are in the same room, at the same time.  In 1998, well before his Gendai training,  Rick Rivard exchanged distant attunements with Doi-sensei and his friend Tanaka-san, so they were able to experience Distant Attunement with Rick. 

However, since distant attunements are currently not taught as a normal part of Gendai Reiki Ho, in order to differentiate this slight change we simply call the distant Gendai Reiki Ho classes by the name of Gendai-Ki Reiki.  While the material, attunements and exercises are EXACTLY the same as my Gendai Reiki Ho, the student will be certified as a Gendai-Ki Reiki Shihan.   As above, my intended audience for this class will be experienced Reiki Masters only, just as I received the teaching from Doi-sensei.  My live classes will continue to be certified as Gendai Reiki Ho.

Aside from the distant attunement, the rest of the class is the same and may actually involve more detail and interaction than the live class.  I have found that distant students tend to spend more time with the material (this is not possible in a live class) and they ask more questions and share much more feedback. In this way, the distant class tends to be superior to the live class, even when compared to the original classes I took which was a live class.  I have re-taken the class via distant method from Mr. Rivard as well.  Often students find the distant attunements to be more intense as well.

A Gendai-Ki Shihan is allowed to teach this material in a live or distant process, but until he or she receives an in-person Gendai Reiki master attunement, it is best that they  NOT use the term Gendai Reiki Ho for their live or distant training, in order to avoid confusion.  Note that there are many Gendai Reiki Ho Shihan who are willing to give the final in-person attunement to my Gendai-Ki Reiki Shihan for a small exchange if you live in their area or can travel to them.  Or, you can meet with me in person at a later date and receive this from me.  In either case, I will re-certify you at no extra charge.

GENDAI REIKI Sessions are among the most powerful sessions available and due to the connection of GENDAI Reiki with traditional Japanese techniques are among the most "pure" of the various Reiki modalities available.  Sessions are offered for any number of issues and many people who have received sessions report that they heard/felt/saw Ancient Beings and experienced highly altered states during the sessions.  It is not at all unusual for people to feel and see Usui Sensei during a Gendai Reiki Session.  If you are interested in very traditional Japanese Reiki and techniques which date to the time Usui Sensei (which are no longer taught other than in Gendai Reiki) these sessions provide the ultimate experience.

Sessions are over distance.  Remote/distance sessions occur at a time that is mutually convenient and are arranged via email after you pay for the session (usually within a 24 hour period). 

GENDAI REIKI can be from 30 to 90 minutes depending on your needs.  Your investment for an GENDAI REIKI Session is $1.25 USD per minute.

During a remote session it is advisable for you to be sitting or laying down in a quiet area with telephone, TV, radio, etc. shut off and with those with whom you may live understanding that you don't want to be disturbed for the time set aside for the session.  I contact you via your energy in the Etheric Realm and am a conduit for the powerful energy of GENDAI REIKI to flow into your body/being.  Sessions can be issue specific or can be provided for a sense of overall well being to assist your body in doing what it does best which is HEAL.  GENDAI REIKI Sessions are appropriate for ALL physical, emotional/mental and Spiritual Issues.

NOTE - GENDAI REIKI is NOT a substitute for qualified allopathic care from your physical and/or mental health provider.  As with ALL Vibrational Energy and Alternative Holistic Care it is an adjunct to your allopathic medical care.  I do reserve the right to decide to not work with you should I determine that it would not be appropriate for your needs.

As you know, I have been a Usui Reiki Master for over 20 years; however, until I took this class I'm not sure I ever really understood Reiki.  I certainly didn't approach it as a spiritual practice before this class.  I am forever in your debt for sharing the wonder of the more traditional approach with me.  THANK YOU.  MJ - Ashland, OR & Mt. Shasta, CA

I love Usui Reiki and have used it for the last 2 years since I took it from you.  My clients love the work and they particularly enjoy the profound sense of love and compassion they receive.  We are all in awe of the work of Gendai Reiki.  The opportunity to learn the true traditions of Reiki as they've been kept alive in the Gakkai, instead of the taint of Westernization is a life changing one.  I cannot believe how much more I got out of this class than out of all the other classes I have taken.  It is a Graduate level class and Reiki, which was a daily part of my life, is not an integral and very important part of my daily spiritual practice.  SB - Palm Desert, CA

This is the MOST profound Reiki class I have ever taken.  The information you share is amazing.  Two manuals, well over 400 pages total.  A giant leap forward in my spiritual practice.  The traditional techniques are fabulous and I just can't believe that they aren't taught outside this class.  Thanks again for an amazing, life-changing experience.   JM - Coventry, UK

I been getting Reiki sessions weekly for over the last 8 years and other alternative methods for over 50 years and I have always loved the gentle grace of this modality; however, until I received a Gendai Reiki session from you I didn't realize the infinite power in the gentleness.  You are an amazing woman with the most skill at healing that I've ever known in my 80+ years and believe me I have experienced some exceptional healers in my travels all over this world.  I can't say enough about your ability, willingness to share, heart based actions and professionalism.  I am pleased to call you my "secret healing friend".  As you know, all my friends at the Senior Center are now calling you constantly.  We love the fact that you have dedicated Sr. Only days for us and I will never forget your amazing actions when I was hospitalized.  Blessings are yours dear one.  MR - Seattle, WA
