Satori Reiki Ecuador

  • This natural healing art was rediscovered by Sensei (Master Teacher) Mikao Usui, a Tendai (Japanese Buddhist school) priest.
  • The main source of factual history today about Mikao Usui is quite literally written in stone. This is the Memorial Stone in the Saihôji Buddhist temple in Tokyo, which is engraved with information about his life. According to the stone, his teachings were developed quasi-miraculously in 1922 during 21 days of meditation atop Mount Kurama. The concept of divine inspiration is essential to the founding of any Japanese art:
    • “One day he went up to Mount Kurama and, after 21 days of severe discipline, without eating, a great Reiki (Illumination) swept through ​​his head and he reached fullness and obtained Reiki Ryhôjô (Healing Energy). He used Reiki first on himself and then tried it on the members of his family. Its effectiveness was immediate.”.
      (Excerpt from the Mikao Usui (MU) Memorial Stone. 1927)
  • In April 1922, MU opened his school in Harajuku, Tokyo, and in the same year created the Usui Reiki Ryôhô Gakkai (Reiki Training and Clinical Center). He died in Hiroshima on March 9, 1926.


  • MU was born on August 15, 1865, into a high-ranking Samurai family in the village of Taniai, Japan.

  • He was a Tendai Buddhist from birth and studied in a Tendai monastery as a child. This meant he could stay home with his family without having to live in a temple.

  • MU married Sadako Suzuki, with whom he had two children, a son and a daughter. From his youth, he stood out among his peers because of his hard work and commitment. He was by nature multifaceted; he loved to read and was a devoted reader of history books, medical texts and Buddhist and Christian scriptures. He was well-versed in psychology, Taoism and poetry.

  • It is impossible to determine a date for the start of Mikao Usui’s teachings, but it is believed that he began to teach long before 1922, when he opened his official seat of learning and created the Usui Reiki Ryôhô Gakkai (URRG).

  • The purpose of MU’s teachings was to provide a method for students to reach the state of plenitude, with healing as a wonderful side effect, which distinguishes his teachings from other healing methods. People began to visit Sensei Usui for different reasons, some for healing, others for spiritual instruction.

  • He described his teachings as “the sacred method for inviting happiness and the miraculous medicine to cure all diseases.” It is worth pointing out that these are, in fact, their pre-eminent features.

  • The five precepts on which he based his teaching are:

    • “Just for today, do not worry.
    • ust for today, do not fill up with anger.
    • Honor your parents, teachers, the elderly and children.
    • Work honestly.
    • Show gratitude to all things, animate and inanimate.”
  • Sensei invited his students to sing the Five Precepts three times at the start of the day and at the end of his regular group meetings, and he taught that reciting them was the secret to attracting happiness through many blessings, because they were the guidelines that helped his disciples on their way to Inner Awakening.

  • The two figures who subsequently had the greatest influence on the emergence of Reiki in Japan and in the West were, respectively, Chûjiro Hayashi and Hawayo Takata.


  • CH was Sensei Usui’s student in May 1925 and a member of the URRG. However, he left that institution to set up his own clinic.

  • In 1931, CH named his clinic Hayashi Reiki Kenkyû Kai (Spiritual Energy Society).


  • HT was a Japanese-American woman who lived in Hawaii and traveled to Japan to be healed in CH’s Reiki clinic in 1936. She stayed until 1938 and then took the teachings to the West.

  • On February 21, 1938, CH traveled to Hawaii and bestowed the Reiki Master Certificate on Takata before returning to Japan.

  • Hawayo Takata adapted the teachings for introduction to the West.
