Three years ago I had the opportunity to study with my favorite reiki author/researcher, Frank Arjava Petter, when he was traveling through San Diego to teach Jikiden Reiki seminars, and this year he will be teaching in Los Angeles at the end of the month. Arjava sensei has authored several books on reiki including Reiki Fire, The Original Reiki Handbook of Dr. Mikao Usui, and This is Reiki, and was the first to publish a translation of the memorial inscription at Mikao Usui’s gravesite.
Having read many reiki books and websites on the subject I like Arjava’s easily accessible writing style and his dedication to getting validated and verifiable information regarding reiki and Mikao Usui out to the public.
Having met and studied with him in person I can say that he is the real deal. He truly embodies the reiki principles and respects the practice with all his heart. He is a humble man, and I can feel his sincerity when he shares his journey in meeting those that have shared so much knowledge regarding the practice and history of reiki.
Arjava sensei is the Vice President of the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyu Kai and in case you haven’t heard of Jikiden Reiki before here is a description:
Jikiden Reiki is the original teaching of Reiki preserved in its authentic tradition in Japan and presented with credibility and clarity. It is entirely free of Western influence. Its roots go back almost to the discovery of Reiki itself.
For those interested in taking the Jikiden Practitioner Training in LA scroll down to see the flyer with all of the details.
Aside from the Jikiden Reiki seminars this month, there are a couple other events to be aware of. First, I will be teaching a Reiki II Class on the weekend of May 18-19, and then there is a free online event, Reiki Healing Summit Spring 2019, from May 20-26 with 30 practitioners from around the world talking about reiki and its practice.
You can find more information regarding each of these events in the flyers and links below.
Have a great month and continue living from your heart!
