Where is the Office of the Grand Master?
There is not a physical office. The word Office refers to a position of public function.  In Reiki words, the Office refers to an energetic entity that was founded in 1993 and continues to the present. This is not a part of the system of practice but a working entity that has functional appropriateness at the present time.  

What does the Office do?
Phyllis Lei Furumoto and Paul David Mitchell have been recognized by masters and students of Usui Shiki Ryoho served by the lineage of Mikao Usui, Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, and Phyllis Lei Furumoto as having a unique place in the circle of masters of the system. They serve the community of Usui Shiki Ryoho and the greater Reiki community by offering seminars and workshops on for specific purposes and specific groups of students or masters. Most of their offering are open to any Reiki student and/or master. Their understanding of what a Reiki practice is and what the gifts and challenges of such a practice come from their studentship with Hawayo Takata, their accumulated experiences throughout the years of their own practice, and their observation of the practice of many hundreds of students and masters. 

Energetically the Office holds the essential stream of energy that flows through this Spiritual Lineage from one to another.

Perhaps there are other energetic lines of responsibilty that are not articulated at this time nor able to be understood.
