Jonathan Stuart

Jonathan started training in western Reiki in 1998 and after a number of years became a (Western) Reiki Master Teacher. Subsequently, one of his fellow students was one of the first westerners to be taught by Chiyoko Yamaguchi along with Frank Arjava Petter in Japan. She recommended he attend a seminar being taught in the UK in 2004 by Tadao, Chiyoko’s son, and Jonathan never looked back; Obtaining Shihan (Teacher) status in September 2008. ( Official list of teachers).

This was a turning point, it was like being given exactly what you had been looking for, with out knowing you were looking. Jonathan had been teaching what he had learned and passed it on to the best of his abilities, but something wasn’t quite right, but he didn’t know what. Learning Jikiden Reiki put this right, it brought Reiki back to a simple practical system, with it's deep history and meaning.

Being given the information as it was taught originally made so much sense, it cleared up any ambiguities, and now makes teaching flow correctly and easily as it should.

It is with great respect to Mrs Hawayo Takata that Jonathan is connected to Reiki, because without her efforts, we in the west wouldn’t experience its benefits and millions have benefitted, thanks to her. But unfortunately over time important teachings were changed or left out of western Reiki courses (99% of courses taught today). Luckily we can now pass on the original teachings once more. With huge thanks to Chiyoko and Tadao Yamaguchi.
