Join Dr. Justin Stein, one of the organizers of the recently-opened Hawayo Takata Archive, for an intimate experience learning about the life of Takata-sensei through direct experience of her writings, correspondence, Reiki certificates, photographs, audio recordings, and more. This archive also includes materials dealing with her teacher, Chujiro Hayashi, and many of her students.
Sunday November 17th 3pm to 6pm
Introduction by Dr. Stein to the life of Hawayo Takata, the archive's construction, and its materials
Monday November 18th 9am to 3pm
Spend the day in the Archives at the University of Santa Barbara, seeing the life of Hawayo Takata through her personal papers, most of which have barely been seen by the public. Ample time will be provided for individual reading and group discussion.
This is a one-of-a-kind pilgrimage experience to experience the energy of these materials with the support of a Reiki community and a scholar like Dr. Stein, who has worked intimately with these materials for years.
Limited to 20 people.
