Paula Michal-Johnson, Ph.D., Shihan,
Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai, Kyoto, Japan.

If you want to learn to heal yourself and family members, Jikiden Reiki is an effective way to begin the process. Paula trained with Frank Arjava Petter and Tadao Yamaguchi, the leaders of the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai. Jikiden Reiki was practiced for more than 65 years in Japan, it has no western influences. I am fascinated with the origins of Reiki in Japan. Jikiden Reiki is the right match for me as it offers firm evidence of Reiki’s beginnings. Traveling to Japan has allowed me to immerse myself in the culture that produced this clear, simple approach to healing. As a teacher, humor, intuitive curiosity, and deep and abiding trust in students guide my courses. Our interactive classes partner clinical experience, well-researched information and media presentations of authentic evidence. We bring the Japanese origins of Reiki to you in depth-modules. As a university educator for 40 years at many different colleges and universities in the U.S, my communication courses at Villanova University, Lehigh University, Texas A&M University, The University of Denver, El Paso Community College and the University of Texas, El Paso were always well-received. I have taught Jikiden Reiki throughout the East Coast of the U.S., Chicago, Texas and other areas.
