Pause in Gendai Reiki classes during Covid 19

Gendai Reiki Ho is taught face-to-face. Gendai Reiki attunements are given and received face-to-face. Other methods are not valid or recognised in Gendai Reiki Ho. Therefore, sadly, we have had to press the pause button on Reiki classes during the pandemic.

We are all active in Reiki in other ways, particularly in terms of our own personal practice. So you can be sure that we will resume classes as soon as restrictions are lifted.

Please get in touch to register your interest.

Doi Sensei has been updating his manuals and so these are available for purchase to existing trainees, and all classes from now on will be taught with these updated manuals.

More information will be given in a separate post.

Gendai Reiki-ho class – Shinpiden – Level III

Universal Energy
– Wholenes


Would you like to start the new year with a new step in personal growth, and growth of your spirit?

Universal energy, what we call Reiki, is information that is perfect, complete, whole.  When we align ourselves with that energy, we have access to that wholeness.  Would you like to increase your capacity to connect with that level of wholeness?
If the thought fills you with joy and your soul cries ‘yes’, you may be interested in joining our Gendai Reiki-ho Level III class on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th February 2016.
The class is the springboard that begins the process, and will be followed by further opportunities for growth through group discussion and personal mentoring.
My Okuden – Level II – students are welcome to join the class.  Existing Shinpiden and Gokuikaiden students are welcome to join us to review.
Please get in touch for more information

Level One Reiki Class

Doi Sensei, founder of Gendai Reiki-ho

Doi Sensei, founder of Gendai Reiki-ho

There will be a Level One – Shoden – Gendai Reiki-ho class on 28-9 November 2015 in the beautiful Scottish Borders.

Gendai Reiki-ho is the system of Reiki founded by Hiroshi Doi, who is a member of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai.  The Gakkai is the organisation started by Mikao Usui who began this system of healing in Japan almost 200 years ago.  Since then Reiki has spread all over the world, and is accepted as a valid form of healing.

However, Gendai Reiki is much more than a system of hands-on healing.  The original teachings of Usui Sensei were passed down by him to his successors in the Gakkai, who then taught Doi Sensei.  In addition, Doi Sensei has carried out research into the origins of Usui Reiki Ryoho, bringing much information to light that may otherwise have been lost forever.

Our class will be rich and deep, sharing original the original teachings of Mikao Usui, also the teachings I received from Hiroshi Doi.  The format is relaxed and friendly, and you will learn how to perform self-treatment, also the method of treating others.

You are welcome to join our class whether you are completely new to Reiki or have learned a different system of Reiki but would like to know more about this form that has deep roots back to the founder.

Please get in touch if you would like further information.

Founder of Gendai Reiki Ho coming to Spain

It is with a mixture of delight and sadness that I bring you news of a Gendai Reiki Ho International Gathering in Madrid.  Delight, because Doi Sensei will be travelling to Europe to share his wisdom with us once again.  Sadness, because this will be the last time Doi Sensei intends leaving Japan for Reiki activities.

The event is being organised by Rika Saruhashi.  I met Rika in Denmark in 2011 when she translated Doi Sensei’s words first into Spanish and then into English for us – a remarkable undertaking!  At this event Rika will translate into Spanish, and there will be simultaneous translation into English.  Sadly, our dear friend Fumi Koji is unable to translate into English for us this time.

There are two consecutive events on offer in Madrid:

10th and 11th October 2015
– Doi Sensei will teach an Exclusive Workshop on Traditional Reiki.
This workshop is open to all practitioners of Reiki of Level 2 and higher, regardless of the system of Reiki in which you trained.

12th October 2015
– Doi Sensei will teach a half day Workshop for Gendai Reiki Masters only
You are invited to present any questions you may have in advance, so that the Workshop may address the needs of the Gendai Reiki Master community.

The venue
is Escorial-Natura Convention and Resort, Monte Abantos in El Escorial, Madrid.  El Escorial is a Unesco World Heritage Site, and looks well worth a visit.

Accommodation is in 2 bedroom chalets, each bedroom sleeping 2 people, a 5th person may be accommodated on a sofa bed in the living area.  The cost is per bungalow per night, not per person, so this presents an opportunity to keep costs to a minimum.  Limited cooking is possible in the chalets as long as everyone is agreeable.  Otherwise meals are available on a full or half board basis.  There is an option for caravans and tents, please see the attached for more information and costs.

Traditional Reiki Workshop – 10th and 11th October:
Registrations before 15th March:                                 €250*
Registrations from 16th March to 15th May:             €300*
Registrations after 15th May:                                        €400*
Headsets for translation (if required)                       €  30
Gendai Reiki Master Workshop
10.00–14.00 on 12th October:                                      €  60

All prices are inclusive of VAT
* there is a €50 registration, which is deducted from the total fee.
Travel fees are not included.

It is in your interests to register early – before 15th March if possible – as the cost is significantly less for early birds.  Travel is usually considerably cheaper if booked in advance too.

It is rare for a member of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai to meet with us and teach in the West.  This may be our last opportunity to welcome Doi Sensei to Europe, to sit in the presence of the founder of Gendai Reiki Ho, to hear him teach and to connect with his extremely high vibration energy.  It is your opportunity to put your questions to Doi Sensei in person, and to receive the benefit of both his wisdom and the results of his researches into Usui Reiki Ryoho’s history.

Please see the attached documents for more information.  I have attempted to draw all the salient details together in this post, but please forgive me if I have omitted something important or made errors.

Booking is direct to the organisers, but please let me know if you intend to go as it would be good to co-ordinate our accommodation and perhaps our travel also.

I look forward to seeing you en Espana!

Reiki Level II class – Okuden

Gendai Reiki class
Okuden – Level II
13/14 December 2014
10.30 – 4.30

Healing health cairn



Are you thinking of taking this next step with Reiki?
Doi Sensei tells us that when you receive Level II, your ability to receive Reiki will be enhanced; the flow will be purer, and the healing power of Reiki will be doubled.  In addition you will be able to perform Reiki healing in the visible (physical) world, the invisible (emotional, mental, spiritual) world, and beyond time and space (distance, past and future).
Please get in touch if you would like to take this step, and I will send you a booking form.  Perhaps let your friends and family know that you would like a contribution to the fee in lieu of a Christmas present this year.  It would be the best Christmas present you ever receive.
For those of you who have already taken this level with me, there is no charge to come along and review – you will be most welcome to join us to refresh your understanding of the concepts of Level II and to receive Reiju to re-align your energy with the highest vibration once more.
If you live further away, you would be welcome to stay.

Hiroshi Doi sensei, the founder of Gendai Reiki Ho, has recorded a two cd set for us:


Gendai Reiki Basic Practice CDs

Gendai Reiki Basic Practice CDs


The latest training method recorded by Doi-sensei
・English translation supervised by native speaker
・Background music performed by Fumio Miyashita
・Must-have instructional CD setting a global standard

This is the English instructional CD in accordance with Japanese version, “Gendai Reiki Ho Basic”.
It was newly recorded in Iizuna Kougen, Shinshu area.
Doi-sensei’s voice is very pleasing to the ear. Deep, warm and comfortable.
His voice will gently guide us to the Reiki world.
During the entire CD program, it also contains healing musics performed by Fumio Miyashita and English translation by his wife, Rinda Miyashita.
The photo of cover jacket was taken by Takahiro Imashimizu, which inspires us to feel the spiritual world in Kagamiike, Togakushi.
It’s not only for global use but it would also be helpful for Japanese to understand how great this sounds in English as well.

This is double CD album (including 2 CDs/set) and JPY 4,000/set from the Gendai Reiki Network in Japan.

Flags of the Nations represented at the Gendai Reiki Network International Conference 2012 in Kyoto

Flags of the Nations represented at the Gendai Reiki Network International Conference 2012 in Kyoto

Hiroshi Doi had expressed a desire to find out how Gendai Reiki is practiced in other countries, therefore the international delegates were each invited to make a presentation on behalf of their country. Those nations that were unable to have a delegate present sent an electronic presentation.  The countries represented were: Australia, Denmark, France, Italy, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Panama, USA, and the UK.  It was my honour to represent the UK.

After our presentation, we were each invited to sign the a charter written in English and Japanese, bearing these words:

Charter of Gendai Reiki Network International

  • How Reiki is Understood in Gendai Reiki Ho
    Reiki lets all living things live and evolve.
  • Reiki is the origin of all the creatures
    Lives are like drops in the sea and connect to each other to form a circle.
  • Reiki fills the Universe
    We can travel the road of Love, Harmony, and Healing by our resonance to Reiki.
  • Use Reiki to create your life
    Realise a life that is peaceful, plentiful, healthy, and filled with joy.
  • Reiki enlightens our lives
    The Universe always raises our consciousness through Reiki.

After the presentations, the overseas delegates were all invited to sign beautifully bound copies of the Charter, which were then presented to us to bring home with us.  We were also invited to sign a globe over the country we represented.
