shakes the Reiki Community to its roots!

After years of being duped into believing that Usui was Japanese,
it now transpires that he was actually …


Crikey Mikey!
(or should that be '...Mike-o' ?)

G'Dayki: The Art of 'Traditional' Strine Usui Reiki Ryoho



The only guide you'll ever need to the Art of Usui Reiki Ryoho as practised from a 'Traditional' Aussie perspective!

Part instruction manual, part introduction to the cultural context in which Mike-o Usui created the system based on his experiences while fasting at the Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains; this book will open your eyes to the wonders of Strine Usui Reiki Ryoho, and take you to a whole new level of understanding of the Art.

Amongst other fascinating "window's on Reiki history" provided by this book, discover how the Reiki symbols actually got their names.

[The power symbol, for example: It seems that several months after his fast in the mountains, Mike-o was talking to his English friend Raymond about the miraculous healing powers of Reiki, and happened to mention how he had used it to cure his prize-winning Langshan. "A Langshan?" Raymond asked,"Is that a breed of sheep?".
"Naw," Mike-o replied, "it's a Chook, Ray. Hang on a tick, that gives me an idea..." ]

Chock-a-block with never-before published Reiki-related anecdotes, this book also includes several rare extracts from Usui's own diaries (allegedly).
Read, in what might be Mike-o's own words, about the fabled toe-stubbing incident - as a result of tripping over a wombat as he ran down the mountain on the morning after his first encounter with Reiki.

Also read how, even though his stomach had shrunk as a result of his 21-day fast, and his throat was - to quote: "dry as a dead dingo's ...", he still managed to consume half-a-dozen 4 day old vegemite sangers and a couple of stale Lamingtons at a local Snack Bar.

You will be amazed by the wealth of information packed into this slim little volume.

Fully un-illustrated, G'Dayki traces the Reiki Ryoho system from its early days as a direct, hands-on treatment practice, right up into the early 21st century and its rapid evolution into the 'traditional' Spiritual Teachings of Mike-o Usui.

Learn how, as a result of her indepth study with an un-named, back-packing Buddhist monk - at a billabong near Boggabilla - the author has transformed Sensei Mike-o's original, highly effective remedial therapy – once dubbed: "The Miraculous Medicine For When You Feel Crook” - into a new, 'traditional' system of meditative practice aimed at assisting students to reconnect with their 'Inner Ocker'.

G'DAYKI- the most comprehensive book ever written on The Art of 'Traditional' Strine Usui Reiki Ryoho.

With a copious foreword by Sir Les Patterson (Former Australian Cultural Attache to the Court of St James)

G'Dayki is endorsed by Skippy.
(What's that you say, Skippy? You used 'Traditional' Strine Usui Reiki Ryoho to heal Sonny Hammond after he fell down a well?)

And has already received glowing reviews:

“G'Dayki presents the reader with a unique sense of the Usui Reiki Ryoho system's 'traditional' Aussie roots.”
[Mic Rodipodops – 'Reiki International']

"It's noice, different and unusual."
[Kath & Kim - from Fountain Lakes, Melbourne]

“If you only buy one Reiki book this year, get this one! It's an absolute bottler!”
[The Author, masquerading as a satisfied customer]

“Y'know possums, since I began practising the techniques in this marvellous little book, my Gladdies have grown absolutely enormous.”
[Dame Edna Everage]

“I'm stoked with this book! And I'm sure Pop would'a been stoked too. The old larrikin had a great sense a  humour. And the author knew that, right? She had me goin' there for a while, though but!
I mean, all that bull's wool about the '3 Opals' and the '5 Elephants of Reiki', and about the chantin' of Buddhist sutras!  Ripper!
But just ask me uncle Bruce - he'll tell ya, the only chantin' Mike-o ever did was when he was watchin' the footie, barrakin' for his team with a coldie in his hand."
[Mike-o Usui's Grandson: Johnno]

“The mindfulness meditations in this book work wonders with agitated Brumbies.”
[The Man from Snowy River]

"No word of a lie, if this isn't a fair dinkum account of the Spiritual Teachings of Mike-o "Fit-as-a-Mallee-bull" Usui, then I'm a Dutchman. Oh, wait ..."
[Piet van der Groot - Bridge-Rigger, NSW]

“Me Mrs was as crook as Rookwood. Thanks to the techniques in the book she's bright-eyed and bushy-tailed again. Wonder if they'll work on me Ute – she's knackered. Reckon I'll give it a burl.”
[Ozzie Bogan]

“A bloody good yarn.”
