Gendai Reiki-ho

Doi Sensei says he is aware that an attunement ceremony is not really required to pass on Reiki. He also knows symbols and mantras are not an essential part of Reiki. They are just tools to help people develop the Reiki channel. As you go higher in the Reiki growth path, you will eventually let go of all these. Only your intention is required to do any Reiki work.

Included with the workshop material were several techniques and meditations that Doi Sensei uses in his own school, Gendai Reiki-ho (Modern Reiki Method).
