The Jikiden Reiki Assocation of Canada shares the following information on their website:
The word Jikiden means “directly passed down from one’s teacher”.
Mr. Tadao Yamaguchi and his mother Chiyoko Yamaguchi founded the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai (institute) in 1999. The seminars are based on the teachings Chiyoko Yamaguchi received from Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, one of Mr. Usui’s prominent students.
One of the most important assets of Jikiden Reiki is Chiyoko’s 65 years’ devotion to it.
A prominent characteristic of Jikiden Reiki is its simplicity.
