Ogawa Sensei was the Shihan or Leader of the Shizuoka, Japan branch of
the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai. In 1986 he wrote a small, self-published
introductory booklet on the practice of Reiki Ryoho that he shared with
others in his city. (He updated the book in 1991) I was given a copy of this booklet and asked if I
could get it translated into English. With the help of several of my
Japanese students I was able to do so and I decided to lay it out in
the format you see below. This would allow those learning Japanese or aleady
able to read Japanese, to see the original text as well.
excerpts below include my introduction pages and credits,
Ogawa-sensei's own booklet introduction, and also what I found to be the most
interesting section of the booklet: "My Expereinces."
Reiki ethics and Copyright law dictate that I (and you) do not have
permission to share the entire book (even the translation) just yet - I am still hoping to hear from the Ogawa family for their permission to print this
- yet I thought you might like to read what an experienced
Japanese Reiki Shihan of over 50 years discovered as he first began to
explore the use of Reiki. And for those learning Japanese, it's a
good exercise in comparing your translation to ours.
I've only shared a few pages of the excerpt here but you can download the complete
excerpt from the link above (where it says "Cick
here"). Note that when viewing the pdf file, the kanji
images may not be very clear. They show up better when the file
or page is printed.
hope you enjoy it.
