Gendai Reiki is a system developed by Hiroshi Doi of Tokyo, Japan, the person responsible for bringing much of the knowledge about Japanese Reiki healing’s history to the West. This philosophy of this system is that Reiki should not be mysterious or ritualistic, but should instead be focused and easy to understand. The name Gendai means modern in Japanese.
Gendai Reiki integrates the Usui Reiki Ryoho of Mikao Usui, the founder of the Usui System of Natural Healing (the English translation of what we call Reiki in the U.S.). with the Western tradition in the lineage of Mikao Usui, Chujiro Hayashi, and Hawayo Takata. The system is taught in four levels, each building on the other and having three attunements, called Reiju in Japanese. The attunements give the student a deepened ability to connect with the information taught in the classes which are each taught in six to seven hours.
