“It was through realizing the existence of spirit that I came to discover the wonderful method we call Jyorei. The fundamental truth that if the spiritual body is purified, the ills of the physical body will be cured, must surely suggest many possibilities of great importance for the future of civilization.”
Jyorei is a simple yet profound healing art that by focusing spiritual light gradually penetrates and dissolves spiritual impurities or clouds that cause physical, emotional, and personal dilemmas. “Jyorei” means “purification of the spirit.” Meishusama developed this healing practice as a treatment for physical infirmities during the 1930s. Jyorei’s healing technique, as practiced by Shumei members, took its final form in 1947 a few years before Meishusama’s passing.
Jyorei is a shared act involving two people, one who gives and one who receives. No physical contact occurs. Besides profound healing, the person receiving Jyorei may experience a sensation of tranquility and well-being. 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 by sharing these benefits with close relatives, friends, and neighbors and the satisfaction derived from helping others.
The beauty of Jyorei is that it is not reserved for members of a spiritual or religious elite but can be practiced by all who are affiliated with Shumei and have been trained in this healing modality. Jyorei can be given at any place and to anyone. All who wish to experience Jyorei are welcome at our centers.
