Jyorei is a shared act, usually involving two people, one who gives
and one who receives. Besides profound healing, the person receiving
Jyorei may experience a sensation of tranquility and wellbeing.
The nature of Jyorei is such that its blessings are even greater
for the giver. Not only does the giver benefit by Jyorei but he
or she also gains a larger capacity for compassion and love for
others and Jyorei’s many blessings extend not only to the
giver but to all whom he or she shares spiritual cords.

spiritual or religious elite but can be practiced by all who are
affiliated with Shinji Shumeikai and have an Ohikari. It can be
given any place and to anyone.
