Jikiden Reiki® Seminar in the Adirondacks

October 5 thru October 13, 2017

10 am to 6 pm Daily




Frank Arjava Petter has been teaching Reiki since 1993, but his deeper and internationally celebrated involvement with Reiki began when he “discovered” the grave and memorial of Reiki founder Mikao Usui in Tokyo, and original documents by Usui and his students. Because of his unique connection to Reiki history, Arjava teaches the Jikiden® seminars in 5 days, integrating information from his ten worldwide, best-selling books about Reiki’s origins.

Frank Arjava Petter is the Vice- Chairman of the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan.

All Jikiden® courses taught by Arjava sensei are accredited by the Japanese Jikiden® Reiki Institute in Kyoto, Japan.

Why study Jikiden Reiki® with Arjava?

Reiki is a simple form of energy healing from Japan known as “shin shin Kaizen Usui reiki ryoho,” which translates to “Usui treatment for the improvement of body and mind.” Jikiden Reiki® is the original Reiki presented with credibility and clarity as it was taught to Chiyoko Yamaguchi in 1938 by Dr. Chujiro Hayashi. Arjava studied directly with Chiyoko Sensei in Kyoto when he lived in Japan. He offers:

  • An authoritative history with authentic documentation
  • A Japanese Reiki with no Western ties
  • A deep Jikiden Reiki® practice successful with chronic illness
  • A proven approach that is safe and effective
  • A very simple, non-religious therapeutic modality
  • Concepts and methods not previously taught in the West
  • A Japanese certificate from Kyoto
