By Bronwen Logan from Reiki with Bronwen.
The founder of the system of Reiki, Mikao Usui (1865-1926), developed a practice that mixes individual spiritual discovery with the broader cultural and religious context of Japan. Understanding its potential connections to Japan’s spiritual traditions—particularly Buddhism, Shintoism, Taoism and Shugendo—offers a richer appreciation of the practice. Such an exploration not only deepens one’s connection to the system of Reiki but also acknowledges the cultural heritage from which it emerged. Yet, to what degree should Reiki practitioners and teachers dive into these practices? Are there deeper requirements that we should be aware of? Should we become Buddhists? Practice Shintoism? Pray as Taoists? Climb mountains as Yamabushi?
