Takata Shares 45 Years of Reiki Wisdom With You
Hawayo Takata (1900-1980) experienced firsthand the healing power of Reiki, when she was cured of her own life-threatening illness in 1935. Immediately she knew that Reiki was her destiny -- and that she wanted to bring it to the West from Japan. Despite being both a woman and a foreigner, because of her profound zeal to learn, she became the first Western Reiki Master in 1938. Then followed over 40 years of constant Reiki practice and teaching.
In 1976, Mrs. Takata began training new Reiki Masters to carry on this noble work. This historic series of recordings, Takata Speaks, is taken from those classes. The teaching examples presented here distill four decades of Reiki experience. The power, confidence, and conviction behind her stories is breathtaking and inspiring. Surely they will deepen the appreciation of Reiki for you, and all who listen to her words.
Mrs. Takata’s clarity, humor, charm and refreshing straightforward style emphasizes the simplicity and naturalness of Reiki. Yet, there are mysteries even she cannot explain.
Future recordings in this series include:
- More Reiki Stories
- Questions & Answers
- and more!
What others are saying about "Takata Speaks"
Dear John Harvey Gray,
My name is (withheld).
I come through Penelope Jewell, from Linda Kaiser Mardis, from Ethel Lombardi, from Takata Sensei.
In the last year I have been troubled with the distance, in time, from Takata's teachings. I was very concerned that as Takata's original Masters moved on, each subsequent generation of Reiki Masters and Practitioners would have that much less a touchstone to what she taught.
I know that the Reiki is the teacher, and that the best way to understand the practice is to sit down, get quiet, and just Do it. Yet we live in a time and place in which well-meaning people routinely mix and match healing modalities. In the ensuing confusion, aspects of what Takata was taught, and learned over 40 years, risks being lost.
As I continued to wish, with all my heart, for a way for Takata's teachings to be directly and more widely available to us today, I learned ... about your first tape.
It is my prayer that you and many other of Takata's Masters will publish as much of her original material as possible....
My very best to you, John Harvey Gray, and to all that feeds and sustains you.
Dear John Gray,
I listened to TAKATA SPEAKS today and I feel privileged to be able to listen to her. It left me in a state of awe, speechless, my mind trying to comprehend her words. Her death was a loss to the world. If you record more of her classes, I'd very much like to purchase them.
Thank you for sharing.
