We recently professionally video taped this three day workshop and edited it into four powerful hours which document the history and background of the recently discovered original techniques of Dr. Mikao Usui. This video workshop contains all the exercises and techniques from the JRT workshop including all those Dr. Usui taught to his students. They are clearly explained and you can replay them and practice them over and over until you have them completely mastered. We are convinced that you will love the simplicity and power of these techniques and that you will want to incorporate them into your daily life. Arjava and Chetna have done an incredible professional job in making the presentation of their material informative, enjoyable and timeless.
New Discoveries In The History of Reiki
Concerning the history of Reiki and how it should be taught, we have been told that Dr. Usui was a Christian and had been the president of Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan. That he had traveled to the University of Chicago and received a degree in theology. Also, we were told that Reiki was an oral tradition, that you must always charge money for Reiki treatments, that you must charge $10,000 for the master level and that there is a Grandmaster of Reiki who is in charge of the Usui system. Recent verifiable research into the history of Reiki has revealed that all these ideas are false.
This video tape set contains important new discoveries concerning the history of Reiki and how Dr. Usui practiced along with instruction on how to do all the Reiki exercises in the Japanese Reiki Techniques workshop including those in the handbook Dr. Usui gave to all his students! This is new information valuable to all who practice Reiki. These exercises have not been taught in the West before.
Introducing The JRT Workshops
In September, 1999 the Center sponsored, Arjava Petter, author of The Original Reiki Handbook of Dr. Mikao Usui, Reiki Fire and The Legacy of Dr. Usui to present workshops in Japanese Reiki Techniques (JRT). Arjava was joined by his wife Chetna Kobayashi, who was also instrumental in the discovery of important information about the history of Reiki and the development of the JRT program. These seminars were so well received that we video taped them and produced this video workshop.

Arjava and Chetna explain their research and the contents of the JRT Video workshop . . .
"In the past several years, more information on Dr. Usui, his life and work in Japan has come to light and new facts and information continue to bubble up every day. Many of us in the West had been told that Reiki was an "oral tradition" and that nothing was to be placed in writing. I do not understand how this idea could have started because it is now known that Dr. Usui had a handbook he gave to all his students, and in fact this handbook is available to all the members of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai currently operating in Japan. It contained crystal clear instructions as to how and when to use Reiki.
In addition, every president of the Reiki organization started by Dr. Usui, the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai, also created handbooks they passed out to their students. Out of these handbooks, and additional information given to us by Mr. F. Ogawa, whose father, K. Ogawa was a close friend and associate of Dr. Usui and the leader of the Shizuoka branch of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai in Shizuoka, we learned an array of wonderful Japanese Reiki techniques that have so far been unknown in the Western world.
It is interesting to note that Mrs. Takata learned many of these techniques from Dr. Hayashi but did not teach them in the West. We know this because she mentions them in her diary. It is a shame that she chose not to teach them as they are such an important part of the Usui system."
Highlights Of The Video
The information in this video has come from research done in Japan including the translation of Dr. Usuis Reiki handbook that he gave to all his students and other original Japanese documents as well as interviews with members of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai - the organization started by Dr. Usui that is still functioning in Tokyo, Japan. It dispells all the myths and misinformation about the history of the Usui system of Reiki and establishes the practice on a solid historical foundation. All the exercises are clearly explained and demonstrated so you can start doing them now!
