FAQ: Can I miss a class? What happens if I miss a class? Students who cannot come to a 10 hour segment of the class would be missing ten hours of foundational practical application that builds towards the next classes, so it is discouraged. Each theory and practice is supported by the Kibetsu (Power) and Jyouka (Motion) from Japan for the specific classes. This allows students to better absorb the depth of the material. The best way to receive the transmission for the material is to attend in order. If it is not possible to attend, then students would repeat the class when it is offered in the future. While they may attend future classes, in order to complete the course, they would make up the 10 hour segment that was missed next time it was offered in either center (NJ or Santa Fe.)

the powers



There are ten powers in the study of Seimei. Linked to these ten powers are ten levels of practice and theory. We are constantly finding new uses and applications for Seimei.


In order to begin to study Seimei, first you must receive the power for levels I-III from the originator, Hiraki Kaiso at the Head Temple (Houjyushu Houjyukai) in Japan. Then the practice and study for the first three levels is completed in the United States.




Right now in the US, there are two Practice and Study Centers where classes are given. One is in Morristown, N.J., and the other is in Santa Fe, New Mexico.



After the first class in Japan (see Journey to Japan tab), there are four required classes. (see To Apply tab.) There are 40 hours of classes after returning from the ceremony in Japan.

At the end of Level I, you have practice hours to complete. At the end of Level II you have 50 hours of practice to complete. We never consider ourselves masters in Seimei. This is aggrevating to some people. This is a journey between you and your Seimei. It is on-going and it deepens as you come to use it, know it, and share it. You will be assigned a mentor to help you obtain good results, explore new applications and share your journey.
