Jyorei, meaning “purification of the spirit,” was developed by Mokichi Okada in Japan in the early part of the twentieth century. It is a simple yet profound healing art in which spiritual Light is focused on others. One Jyorei session usually takes about ten minutes. No fee is requested for the session, although donations are accepted.

Our weekly gatherings are at the heart of our activities. During all gatherings, we chant, exchange Jyorei, study Meishusama’s teachings, and discuss upcoming events and new projects.
 
On the first Thursday of each month, we read from An Offering of Light: Healing Through Jyorei, Natural Agriculture and Art. We also give thanks in our shared testimonials. On the second Thursday, we have a study class. The third Thursday is the Pennsylvania Shumei Center’s Monthly Sampai, which is a gathering dedicated to expressing gratitude and receiving Divine Light. Following sampai, we share a potluck meal together. On the fourth Thursday we focus on Natural Agriculture, sustainability, diet and health. Natural Agriculture is a spiritually-based form of chemical-free farming what emphasizes the farmer’s relationship to nature.
 
The Pennsylvania Shumei Center is unique because it is one of only a few Shumei Home Centers in the U.S. A home center is owned or rented by a Shumei member, not by the Shumei organization.   
 
We rent a portion of the land at Rodale Institute to practice Natural Agriculture. Participants have their own plots and grow their favorite vegetables and herbs. Many of us knew very little about growing vegetables when we started more than 10 years ago. Through our time in the garden, we have come to understand more about the significance of living in harmony with nature. 

We attend various events at the New York Shumei Center such as the Monthly Sampai and the Anniversary Celebrations. Several times a year we participate in local expos and events to share the healing Light of Jyorei.
 
Through our values and various activities, the goal of creating paradise on earth is actively being realized at the Pennsylvania Shumei Center.
