The Reiki Alliance

The Reiki Alliance is a a global organisation of about 650 Reiki masters.

In the Spring Of 1982, a group of Reiki Masters gathered with Phyllis Furumoto in Hawail to honor the memory of Hawayo Takata and to share their experience as masters. The power of their being there together left them with a desire to meet annually.

The second, meeting resulted in the formation of The Reiki Alliance. The intent of The Reiki Alliance is expressed in the founding' statements formulated and adopted at that gathering.
