Usui Reiki / Japanese Reiki
The terms ‘Usui Reiki’ and ‘Japanese Reiki’ are being used more frequently these days as more and more people seek to connect with the original Reiki taught by Mikao Usui.
As many Western Reiki researchers have discovered, gathering accurate information on the origins of Reiki and Mikao Usui’s original teachings has been extremely difficult. The Usui Reiki Ryôhô Gakkai (Society of the Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method) of which Mikao Usui is said to have been the founder, is a very secretive organisation and instructs its members not to discuss its teachings with non-members. In spite of this it is possible to say some things about Mikao Usui with a reasonable degree of certainty.
What we do know is that Mikao Usui was a Tendai Buddhist and that his original teaching was a method of spiritual development which included the use of hands-on healing, rather than being primarily a healing system. In the West most people have been taught the version of Reiki that was introduced by Hawayo Takata, which is usually taught as a system of natural healing. Mikao Usui’s original teaching placed much greater emphasis on spiritual development and using Reiki as a set of tools to use on the path to enlightenment.
For more in-depth information on the origins of Reiki and how different branches of Reiki developed after Mikao Usui’s death we highly recommend The Reiki Sourcebook by Bronwen and Frans Stiene.
