is a Japanese Buddhist monk from Kyoto, Japan who studied Reiki with Chiyoko Yamaguchi, a student of Chujiro Hayashi. Hyakuten is fluent in English, and is noted for his kind, gentle manner and joyous sense of humor.
Internationally known as an authority on Reiki, Hyakuten has been an invaluable consultant and translator to many authors including: “Reiki: Transmissions of Light, Volume 1- The History and System of Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho” by Robert N. Fueston, “REIKI: A Comprehensive Guide” by Pamela Miles, and “The Reiki Sourcebook” by Bronwen and Frans Stiene.
After much research into the original teachings of Usui Sensei, Hyakuten developed Komyo Reiki Kai style of Reiki in 1998 and began holding classes. Komyo Reiki Kai follows the teachings of Usui Sensei and focuses on healing not only the body, but most importantly, the soul or spirit. Usui Sensei believed that with spiritual improvement, the body would naturally be better capable of healing itself. Hyakuten shares this belief.
