While all are welcome to visit the center and receive
Johrei, the membership course is taken in order to become a
member of the Johrei Fellowship. This set of interactive classes
is open to individuals who have
received Johrei at the center at least 20 times within a two
month period and have met at least once with the center Head,
Rev. Gerry Nangle. The course includes two days of instruction
and covers the principles and practices of Johrei and how to
live according to universal spiritual laws. Participants are
asked to read two short books beforehand. The course also includes
a Sangetsu flower arranging class and flower arrangement to
take home. The class concludes with a ceremony where the Sacred
Focal Point is presented.
A Johrei member wears a Sacred Focal Point, or sealed locket,
which contains the calligraphy for "Light" and is
imbued with Divine Light. This infuses the spiritual body and
allows the member to channel Johrei to others. A Johrei member
is someone who is committed to living according to the principles
of Johrei. This includes practicing a healthful lifestyle, giving
service to others, and studying the teachings of Mokichi Okada.
Johrei members come from all faiths and all walks of life.
The membership course is offered periodically and costs $200.
Please contact us if you are
interested in taking the Membership course.
Those who have completed the membership course may continue
their studies by attending advanced classes which are held at various times throughout
the year. Each class is self-contained and you may begin with any class. A donation
is suggested for advanced classes.
These teachings regarding the spiritual world, God's mystical
plan, and esoteric teachings of Meishu-sama are available to
those who have completed the beginning classes. They are held
at various times throughout the year. A donation is suggested
for these classes.
