Transfer of Foreign Language Manuals to GRN

Thank you for being our wonderful friends and collaborators at the GRN.

We would like to inform you that, as of January 1, 2022, the management of all official foreign-language manuals of Gendai Reiki Ho will be transferred from Hiroshi Doi Sensei to GRN.

Currently, all operations from translations to sales of foreign language manuals are managed by Ryoko Julia (current GRN Overseas Director and Vice-president), who lives in the U.S., as an Overseas Manual Department of Hiroshi Doi Sensei's Gendai Reiki Healing Association.

In response to Doi Sensei's suggestion, the GRN board of directors has decided to happily accept the transfer of the manual management to the GRN.

Please read Doi Sensei's message to all Gendai Reiki practitioners attached below.

Ryoko Julia will continue to be in charge of the work from now on, so the process of providing foreign-language manuals will remain unchanged.

We would appreciate your understanding that the membership fees would be used to cover the cost of translating the manuals into the new languages. At the same time, we are confident that the revenue generated from the sale of foreign language manuals will enable us to continue and enhance our services and effectively serve our overseas members, which has been inadequate in the past.

We believe that this proposal from Doi Sensei is the best project for the future of Gendai Reiki and for the GRN, and we are grateful to Doi Sensei.

We would like to take this opportunity to show our sincere gratitude to Gendal Reiki masters and practitioners worldwide. We will strengthen our ties with our overseas colleagues further and expand the circle of the Gendai Reiki Network.

Dear Gendai Reiki Masters, 

Thank you for your dedication to promoting Reiki.

For several years, I have been making various attempts to provide official Gendai Reiki manuals smoothly to Gendai Reiki Masters around the world. In the past few years, translation into foreign languages has progressed smoothly, and the provision of the official manuals has finally gotten off the ground with the introduction of a global distributor system in the world since 2020.

All translations, sales, and distributor-related work have been managed by Ms. Ryoko S. Julia, who lives in the United States, as the Manual Department of my Gendai Reiki Healing Association. It has been going well so far, but as I turn 86 years old on November 2 this year, I have felt the necessity to transfer the official manual management to a reliable organization to maintain the permanence of Gendai Reiki Ho and to prevent any troubles to overseas Gendai Reiki masters after I retire.

After careful consideration of the several options available, I selected the NPO Gendai Reiki Network (GRN) as the most qualified organization to take over my official manual management. Initially, until 2016, the GRN was responsible for providing the official English and Spanish manuals to overseas masters when they were completed. However, due to a lack of human resources, it became difficult to provide services overseas at the GRN. The Gendai Reiki Healing Association took it over and had been doing so ever since. 

Today, the GRN has a new board of directors, a large number of overseas members, and is becoming more active in international activities. In addition, Ryoko S. Julia, who has been in charge of the overseas distribution system for the official manuals at my Gendai Reiki Healing Association, is a bridge between the GRN and overseas members as the director of overseas affairs and the vice president. She will continue to be in charge of the overseas manual distribution system at the GRN.

Based on the above, I would like to announce that from January 1, 2022, the sales rights for overseas manuals, including the selection of the translation languages, selection and contracting of translators and manual distributors in each country, and all settlement operations, will be transferred to the GRN. As mentioned above, no changes will be made to the distribution system after the transfer, and Ryoko Julia will continue to handle all the manual management as before.
