The Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (Usui Reiki Healing Society) built this memorial to honor Usui Sensei
Kurama-yama is Reiki's Birthplace, a sacred mountain north of Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan. USUI Mikao Sensei attained enlightenment and a healing ability in 1922 at the age of 57 while fasting and meditating in the sacred mountain.
Hawayo TAKATA (1900-1980)
A Japanese-American born on December 24, 1900, on the island of Kauai, Hawaii.
She was diagnosed with a serious gall bladder disease. She made a trip to Japan and was treated with Reiki by Hayashi sensei. She recovered completely in four months.
Hayashi sensei visited Mrs. Takata in Hawaii in 1938 and initiated her into Shinnpiden (Reiki Shihan or Teacher).
Brought Reiki to the West.
Between 1970 and 1980, Mrs. Takata has initiated 22 Reiki Teachers (so-called Reiki Masters in the West).
There are now tens of thousands of Reiki Masters and millions of people practicing Reiki throughout the world.
