Shihan kaku and Shihan

There are certain requirements that students should fulfill in order to progress to the levels of Shihan kaku (assistant teacher) and Shihan (teacher).  The requirements have been put in place to assure that students have sufficient experience, understand the concepts and the courses well and feel confident to teach.

Shihan Kaku requirements

Students should have:

  • agreed to observe the regulations of Jikiden Reiki
  • practiced Jikiden Reiki for at least 6 months
  • repeated Shoden and Okuden (3-day seminar) at least once. It is possible to take Shihan-Kaku immediately after repeating
  • practiced at least 120 hours of Reiki on at least 40 different people (distant healing is not included here)
  • kept a list of the names, dates and length of treatments of the 40 people
  • produced a few case studies of treatments (students own style – no special requirement)

  • submitted a written or spoken (MP3) version of the Reiki history they will be teaching
  • been living everyday according to Gokai principles
