Reiki Jin Kei Do Master Course Summary
Reiki Jin Kei Do
A Reiki master is a person who is committed to walk the path of compassion and wisdom, a person who has chosen to enter deeper into the realm of Reiki, cultivating compassion for themself and others during their training, practice and experience of Reiki. It is also necessary to have developed to some extent deeper insight into their own mind which leads to a certain level of wisdom. In Buddhism, this is the path of the Bodhisattva, a being dedicated to helping others enter the path of enlightenment.
The path of a Reiki master begins with a gift. This gift is the information contained in the "Master Symbol". In the Reiki master initiation, the initiate is given the symbol and the energetic information contained in the symbol is imparted to the initiate in the attunement. This is the first step on the path to deeper healing for yourself and helping others to enter the same path of healing. It is a great responsibility because you have decided to teach others the way of Reiki, in particular the way of Reiki Jin Kei Do, the path of compassion and wisdom. It is a life-long commitment to your students because you, the teacher, need to be available to the student to support them in their Reiki path.
The ability to mentor students requires the teacher to have the ability to provide the needed help or advice through his/her own life experiences. It is, therefore, the personal responsibility of the Reiki master to integrate compassion and wisdom through meditation into his/her life from the first day of being initiated as a Reiki master.

ABOUT RANGA AND ALTAIR
About Reiki Jin Kei Do and Dr. Ranga Premaratna
The Story of Reiki Jin Kei Do
Reiki is a Japanese word. The Kanji Rei means spirit, and Ki means energy or life force. In essence, Reiki can be interpreted as spiritual or universal life force energy. Reiki is also known as the Usui System of Natural Healing, a very simple technique to aid in the process of healing and many believe that it leads to a path of self-transformation. Reiki was initially brought to the United States by Mrs. Hawayo Takata, a Japanese American who studied it in Japan in the 1930’s. Reiki has since become the fast-moving energy modality in the West during the past 30 years.
Reiki was developed in the early 1900’s by a Japanese Shingon Buddhist named Mikao Usui. Master Usui was a well-known scholar and respected healer in Kyoto who undertook an extensive study of healing phenomena as taught through history’s greatest spiritual leaders. Through his travels, research, and meditation, he was led to an ancient healing method based on a combination of Buddhist practices performed only by monks and kept as secret knowledge. It is believed that Dr. Usui learned part of this method and received special empowerments and a meditation through which he expanded his understanding of the energy of healing. He spent the rest of his life practicing and teaching this knowledge. One of his students, a medical practitioner named Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, gave this method a proper structure, which lay people, could practice. Today, this method is now known as “Reiki”.
Reiki Jin Kei Do is another lineage of Reiki. This Jin Kei Do lineage progressed from Dr. Hayashi to Sensei Takeuchi, a Zen monk, and then to one of his students, Seiji Takamori. All these Reiki Masters received the empowerments and meditations originally transmitted by Mikao Usui. Seiji Takamori, born in 1907, became a monk and a Reiki Master under Takeuchi Sensei. Seiji felt a deep desire to search for the origins of Reiki, and embarked on a 20 year journey to India, Nepal, and Tibet. After a long search, he found a few monks belonging to a special sect who practiced the Buddho System of Healing, a method similar but more complete than Reiki. Seiji spent many years studying this method with these monks. After receiving all the secret teachings and energy transmissions, he returned to teach meditation and healing to whomever was ready to receive this precious gift, which he then called EnerSense.
In 1990, Seiji Takamori taught Dr. Ranga Premaratna the four stages of EnerSense and also the teachings and empowerments of Reiki, as transmitted in this very spiritual Buddhist lineage. In 1997, Doctor Ranga Premaratna named this lineage Reiki Jin Kei Do – Reiki in the Way of Compassion and Wisdom.
There are several differences in the teachings of Reiki Jin Kei Do and other lineages. One major difference is the attention to detail that is given to the attunements. In this lineage, the attunements are performed one-on-one or in small groups. To properly prepare the student’s body / mind for the activation process, care is given to balance the body energy and assess throughout the attunement process the effectiveness of the attunement. Consequently, attunements for First and Second Degree normally take 25-30 minutes and the Mastership Attunement / Initiation / Empowerment normally takes 60 minutes.
Another reason in the difference from other lineages is the amount of time taken to present the concepts of Mindfulness Meditation and Qigong. These additional concepts are incorporated into the practice to learn how to relax and train the mind as well as to learn how to increase the physical energies of the body. The lineage is also a spiritual one because it emphasis meditation as a daily practice in conjunction with Reiki. Finally, Reiki Jin Kei Do focuses on compassion and opening the heart through meditation and Reiki.
