Dear Gendai Reiki Masters, 

Thank you for your dedication to promoting Reiki.

For several years, I have been making various attempts to provide official Gendai Reiki manuals smoothly to Gendai Reiki Masters around the world. In the past few years, translation into foreign languages has progressed smoothly, and the provision of the official manuals has finally gotten off the ground with the introduction of a global distributor system in the world since 2020.

All translations, sales, and distributor-related work have been managed by Ms. Ryoko S. Julia, who lives in the United States, as the Manual Department of my Gendai Reiki Healing Association. It has been going well so far, but as I turn 86 years old on November 2 this year, I have felt the necessity to transfer the official manual management to a reliable organization to maintain the permanence of Gendai Reiki Ho and to prevent any troubles to overseas Gendai Reiki masters after I retire.

After careful consideration of the several options available, I selected the NPO Gendai Reiki Network (GRN) as the most qualified organization to take over my official manual management. Initially, until 2016, the GRN was responsible for providing the official English and Spanish manuals to overseas masters when they were completed. However, due to a lack of human resources, it became difficult to provide services overseas at the GRN. The Gendai Reiki Healing Association took it over and had been doing so ever since. 

Today, the GRN has a new board of directors, a large number of overseas members, and is becoming more active in international activities. In addition, Ryoko S. Julia, who has been in charge of the overseas distribution system for the official manuals at my Gendai Reiki Healing Association, is a bridge between the GRN and overseas members as the director of overseas affairs and the vice president. She will continue to be in charge of the overseas manual distribution system at the GRN.

Based on the above, I would like to announce that from January 1, 2022, the sales rights for overseas manuals, including the selection of the translation languages, selection and contracting of translators and manual distributors in each country, and all settlement operations, will be transferred to the GRN. As mentioned above, no changes will be made to the distribution system after the transfer, and Ryoko Julia will continue to handle all the manual management as before.
