Japanese-American healer who helped introduce the spiritual practice of Reiki to the Western World. As a Nisei fluent in the language and culture of both Japan and the United States, she was well-suited for this task, and her contributions in this area are widely acknowledged. Takata, however, remains a source of controversy in the Reiki community for her efforts to maintain the practice as a sort of pay-for-access franchise under her leadership. She died on December 11, 1980.
Sy Scholfield quotes "The Ultimate Guide to REIKI" by Kaya Niranjan Kumar Reddy (2005), p. 49: "Hawayo Takata was born at dawn on December 24th, 1900, on the island of Kauai, Hawaii."
