Counting Life, of Castle Rock, Colorado, US, is the authorized headquarters of Reido Reiki in the West.
At Counting Life, Reido Reiki Training Courses for Healers will be taught by Chika on a one to one basis, unless they are a couple or close friends who want to learn together. Upon completion of each course, you will receive the official certificate directly from the main office in Japan.
Reido Reiki is a system of Usui Reiki.
Fuminori Aoki Sensei is the founder and creator of Reido Reiki, the oldest existing Reiki Institute in Japan except Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai. The original society created by Usui Sensei, the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai, has continued for generations and still exists today, however, it does not provide classes open to the public at present.
In Reido Reiki, the teachings passed down from Traditional Japanese Reiki (Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai) have been blended with the teachings of Western Reiki (Reiki which Ms. Hawayo Takata taught.) We do not touch any other contemporary modern Reiki.
In our Reido Reiki courses, it is noted which parts of the curriculum reflect Traditional Japanese Reiki directly from Usui Sensei, and which techniques were accepted as proven enhancements from Western Reiki (the Hawayo Takata Sensei line.) Technically, Reido Reiki is a blend of Traditional Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki, but it is important always to understand that Reido Reiki strongly emphasizes meditation, cultivating one's character, and 'living a Reiki way of life' - and these are core teachings from the heart of original Japanese Reiki.
Reido Reiki Training Courses for Healers are composed of three dimensions: attunements, skills, and ethics.
In Reido Reiki First and Second Degree, you learn the basics of Reiki as a level of therapy to be used only inside the family and with close friends. In the Third-A Degree, you learn about self quest and spiritual growth. In the Third-B Degree, you learn a level of becoming a semi-professional or professional Reiki therapist. The Fourth Degree is for teaching Reiki. You need to have a considerable amount of experience in order to be able to take the Fourth Degree.
It is not necessary for everyone to complete courses through the Fourth Degree (Usui Reiki Master Course.) Please learn what you need at your own pace.
The English manual for each degree is an interpretation from the original Japanese manual written and used by Reido Reiki, Human & Trust Institute in Japan. Modifications and enhancements of the original text were done with approval by Aoki Sensei, founder of Reido Reiki in Japan.

After completion of Fourth-A Degree, you can choose to either end your affiliation with Reido Reiki and become an independent master of Usui Reiki, or continue your affiliation with Reido Reiki and become a licensed Usui Reido Reiki Master, a teacher of Reido Reiki Training Courses for Healers.
In order to achieve this, you must receive additional training that will prepare you to instruct others in Reido Reiki. Also, you must have a considerable amount of Reiki healing experience, must demonstrate the standard of the art and procedure for attunement, and must have your Usui Reido Reiki Master’s approval. Your Usui Reido Reiki Master is in charge of this process, including making a request to the headquarters for your licensing.

As you continue with courses 4-B and beyond, you will be qualified to teach the advanced courses.
