I'm James Deacon, Master-level
Reiki Healing Facilitator
sometimes use the term 'Reiki Master', but, as most of us Reiki-ka
( - practitioners) must eventually come to realise & admit -
even if it is only to ourselves - the term 'Reiki Master' is really a
misnomer: not so much a case of 'Master of Reiki'
as 'Mastered by Reiki' - so I feel that the term:
'Master-level Reiki Healing Facilitator' is perhaps more fitting.
Why don't I simply call myself a 'Master-Level Reiki Healer'?
So many people claim to be Healers - yet in truth we can
never really heal anyone else - the most we can do is to facilitate
healing: to set up the conditions (or, as it is
phrased: 'hold the healing space') & provide the Reiki -
thereby enabling & assisting the person to heal themselves.
At least, thats my opinion...

thirty years now, I have been involved in extensive research into
wide-ranging and diverse aspects of the field of 'Mind, Body &
Throughout this period, my personal
journey has primarily been one of resonance with the Esoteric,
Therapeutic & Martial disciplines of China & Japan; the
Western Mystical Tradition; and elements of Sufi/Dervish practice.
I have a strong background in 'vital-energy therapy'
disciplines - having worked primarily with SHEN®, Therapeutic Touch,
Mesmero-Magnetic Healing, Tenchi Seiki Te-Ate, & specific
aspects of Qi Gung, prior to undertaking Reiki Master-level Initiation
& Training in 1998.

and abiding (some would say obsessive) fascination with various forms
of 'energy' disciplines (- be they Reiki-derived systems, or
independently-evolved systems of Healing and Spiritual Empowerment -)
and specifically my ongoing research into the origins of Reiki - has
inspired me to create this website which I hope you will find a
development of this
site has, amongst other things involved:
research (both 'within' and 'without' the Reiki Community) in relation
to information personally gleaned from seminars, training courses; and
word of mouth via discussions with Reiki teachers in Japan and
Collating Reiki-related materials from
disparate sources in an attempt to arrive at some degree of
corroboration of the 'facts'
Research into relevant areas of
Japanese history, culture and religion, including study of numerous
academic journals and papers
experience-base of various Japanese therapeutic, martial and spiritual
disciplines, spanning a period of more than 30 years
The occasional assistance of a small number of friends, and other
acquaintances (some Reiki folk, some not) who are either
native-speakers of Japanese, or fluent due to years spent studying or
working in Japan, and thus conversant with subtle aspects of modern
Japanese language and culture I might otherwise have overlooked
Direct communication and discussion with professors and
other academics involved in various aspects of the broadranging field
of 'Japanese Studies' - particularly as relating to pre-WWII culture
Commissioning the translation of
various Japanese documents
Discussions - either
directly or via third parties - with professed 'original sources' of
info relating to the 'new' Reiki history...
The list goes on and on...
And while I am indebted to many for their assistance, a token list of
Professor Fabio Rambelli
Usui, Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata... and a Reiki cast of thousands...
