How my recent shugendo training has informed my understanding of the system of Reiki. As some of you might know I recently went to Japan to train with a Japanese Shingon priest, Takeda Hakusai Ajari, who was once a Tendai monk as a disciple of the great Sakai Dai Ajari, learning about Shinto, Shugendo, Tendai and Shingon. This training has brought me different insights into the system of Reiki and Mikao Usui.
As some of you know I just spent a week in Japan deepening my own personal spiritual practice with a Japanese Shingon priest, Takeda Hakusai Ajari, who was once a Tendai monk as a disciple of the great Sakai Dai Ajari, learning about Shinto, Shugendo, Tendai and Shingon.
Many people ask the question “What is Reiki?”.There are two ways of looking at this question.
From one angle Reiki means “spiritual energy”; our own innate brightness, our true nature, our essence or whatever words you want to use to express this. This innate brightness is often covered with layers of worry, fear, anger and attachments. So much so, that we cannot see its brightness anymore—it is completely hidden.

There are three steps that you might take to understand Mikao Usui’s teachings. The first step in trying to understand Mikao Usui’s teachings is often to read a book or attend a lecture on the subject. By following this path, you rely solely on the author or teachers’ understanding of the teachings.

How many times have you repeated a workshop or a class, I mean the same exact class? Typically, we attend a workshop, learn something and we move on. We either want to experience the same teaching with a different teacher or learn a new technique or modality. For me, it’s only with Frans Shinpiden class that I can’t get enough of it. I know that’s how most people feel, because everyone; yes “everyone” from Cincinnati from last year’s class came back for either Shinpiden or Intensive this year. There were 18 re-sitters in a class of 25 people. This is not unusual for Frans’ classes. In most classes, there are people who took the class 10 times or more and yet they come back. WHY?
