DR. MIKAO USUI
Dr. Mikao Usui’s teachings began with a fasting experience on Mount Kurama,during which he experienced a “great Reiki” around his head, or a shock in the centre of his head (depending on the translation accessed), an effect of which was that he obtained a Reiki Ryoho (Reiki healing method).
After practicing the method on himself and his family with much success, Usui opened a dojo (training hall) in Aoyama, Harajuku, Tokyo in April 1922, and began teaching people and offering healing sessions. He started newly a method to improve body and spirit based on Reiki in the universe.
Hearing of the rumor, people who would like to learn the treatment and undergo the cure gathered from all quarters all at once. Really, it was very busy indeed. Usui was so popular that people traveled great distances to receive his guidance and healing. It is said that there was often a long line of shoes outside his door.
The following are the Reiki Principles.
