Is It Your Destiny To Learn Jikiden Reiki in Japan this Nov 2012?

Could it be your destiny to discover Jikiden Reiki in Japan with SWIHA translator and crew?  This group will be traveling to the sacred city of Kyoto, Japan November 11 – 20, 2012 to learn the originally taught form of Reiki from the fourth in lineage, Tadao Yamaguchi.

Here you will explore Mikao Usui’s original vision of Reiki, which he discovered while fasting for 21 days on Mount Kurama.  On this mission you will not only discover this pure form of Reiki, focusing on how to prepare your heart and mind to use the ‘original’ symbols, but you will journey up this exact mountain to get your own divine message!

Together we will take a ‘destiny walk’ through the amazing Fushimi-Inaire Shrine while enjoying a glorious season of the famous cherry blossom!  This tour will be led by Reiki Master & Teacher, Mihoko Knight.  The training and trip will cost approximately $3,500 – $4,000.
