What is Reiki DoJo

To understand what Reiki DoJo is one must simply look to the kanji.

Reiki is loosely translated as Universal Energy here in the West.

However Usui Sensei had a different answer.

Dr. Mikao UsuiUsui Sensei would ask, “If Reiki is in all things, an all things are in Reiki, does this not make us Reiki? 

Usui Sensei saw that at our truest state we are reiki. 

Reiki is True Self.


The Western translation is:

A hall or space for immersive learning or meditation. 

In Japan it simply is known as:

Place of the Way

Reiki DoJo Is the way and Place of the true self.

How does it work?

Satori’o Ho: Method of enlightenment.

It is Believed that to find enlightenment one must become whole, or balanced. Natural healing through self discovery.

Usui Sense’s explanation of how it worked is explained in the name of the system so not to be forgotten. 

Let’s break it down.

Reiki Ryo-Ho

Reiki- True Self

Ryo- to cure, or to Heal. (The definition of heal is to make whole)

Ho- Dharma, method, truth, teachings

Usui Reiki Ryo-Ho:

Is Usui’s method of healing the true self. 

 A path to enlightenment

When asked how does it work, my answer is

Natural Healing Through Self Discovery into True Self. 

Or simply Satori’ o Ho.
