In the spring of 1982 a group of Reiki Masters gathered with Phyllis Furumoto in Hawaii to honour the memory of Hawayo Takata and to share their experience as Masters. The power of their being together left them with a desire to meet annually. The second meeting resulted in the formation of The Reiki Alliance. The intent of the Reiki Alliance is expressed in the Masters' statement formulated and adopted at that gathering:
We are an alliance of Reiki Masters.
We regard all Masters as equal in the oneness of Reiki.
We acknowledge Phyllis Lei Furumoto as a Grand Master
in the direct spiritual lineage of Mikao Usui,
Chujiro Hayashi, and Hawayo Takata.
The purpose of the Alliance is to support us as teachers
in the Usui System of Natural Healing.

The Reiki Alliance meetings are a time of renewal,
celebration and mutual support.
The Reiki Alliance is a point of focus in Reiki.
Its form eludes definition as it is an expression of energy
whose essence is movement.
