Gendai Reiki Classes

Seminar fees and course information are not posted on this website. If you need information, please email us with your place of residence and the levels you have studied.

I offer two courses: the Master Special Course and the Mid-stage Course.

The Master Special Course is designed for those who are qualified to teach any lineage of Reiki.

The intermediate level course is for those who have studied up to the third level and wish to become qualified to teach.

All seminars are conducted by myself, Hiroshi Doi.

If you are new to Reiki:

I recommend that you take a course at a school near where you live. It is important to study at a place where follow-up services are available for you. Please choose a school where you can easily go to retake a course or follow up, and confirm the course contents carefully by phone or e-mail. We also recommend that you choose a school where the master does not rush you to take the next level.

Distant teaching is not allowed in Gendai Reiki.
Avoid masters who teach three levels in a row.

This type of teaching makes people who have learned Reiki but cannot use or teach it.  It is not advisable to take Levels 3 and 4 consecutively.  Taking Level 4 qualifies you to teach, however, you will become a master without the most important practical experiences and hands-on practices taught in Level 3, and you will only be able to give seminars that are not based on your real experiences.

Reiki is a lifelong learning process. Even if it takes time, you should learn it steadily. Therefore, the system is structured in such a way that you can practice without difficulty. 

If you find a Gendai Reiki Master who violates it, please let me know. If I warn such masters and they do not change their ways, I will prohibit the use of the name "Gendai Reiki" and stop providing official manuals. The name is a registered trademark.


Dear Gendai Reiki masters,

How are you?  

How should a Gendai Reiki master cope with the current difficulties in face-to-face training?
The Japanese government has declared a state of emergency for the second time, and I had to cancel all my seminars. As many Gendai Reiki masters in the world suffer, I have also been tackling this issue.
I decided to seek advice from Usui Sensei by contacting him through my morning and evening meditations with the "How to Contact the Higher State" technique in Level III.
I have received the following suggestions, which I would like to share with you.

There are two important roles for a Gendai Reiki master.

The first is to enhance one's spirituality and to live a peaceful life.
In order to lead other people, we must first prepare ourselves.

The second is to correctly convey the essence of Reiki and how to utilize it.

Teaching Gendai Reiki correctly is not about giving a good explanation in a seminar but about communicating what you have gained through your own experiences and practice with your personality in the same energy field.
Passing a torch directly from the hand of the founder, Usui Sensei, to the next person's hand is the transmission, not giving a picture of the torch.

For a master, spreading Reiki is also an important role, but it requires timing. You can't hand out the torch in the middle of a storm. That would mean extinguishing the fire of tradition.

It may be difficult now, but the best time will come for sure.
Just as there is no night without dawn, the difficult times will not last forever.
Looking forward to that time, understand that this is the time to strengthen your own brilliance, and concentrate on increasing resonance between your inner Reiki and Reiki in the Universe.

I would like to take this suggestion as it is and follow the international rules and the guidance of Reiki.

Hiroshi Doi
