The Reiki Digest for November 15, 2006: Ready, set, review!

The Reiki Digest is on a quest. We're looking for the Top Ten Reiki Sites online, and we're asking for your help in choosing them. Quite a few of our readers have volunteered to review Reiki sites, and others have suggested their favorite sites, in some cases their own, for review. If you'd like to participate and you haven't spoken up yet, don't worry: you're still welcome to join the project.

We'll be rating sites for:

Accuracy and completeness of information about Reiki
Focus: Is Reiki the primary subject of the site?
Navigability
Appearance
Overall Quality

So far, we have 20 sites for review, half of them representing the top results on a typical Google search for the word "Reiki", the other half nominated by our readers. There is still time to add more sites if you'd like to suggest one (or more). Yes, you can offer your own site for review.

Here's the list so far:

Top 10 sites from a Google search on the word "Reiki":

(1) http://reiki.org

(2) http://reiki.7gen.com/

Thanks in advance for your participation.

This week's Reiki Roundup begins in Australia, where actress and Reiki recipient Belinda Emmett has died after an 8-year battle with cancer. Emmett had been receiving Reiki regularly since her diagnosis in 1998, according to an article in the Herald-Sun. She was 32, and, sadly, is our first Celeb-Reiki to receive the distinction posthumously.

Next stop: Ohio, where the Cincinnati Post features an article about a group of Christian Reiki practitioners who learned Reiki from a Catholic nun and liken their practice to the healings of Jesus.

On to Charleston, West Virginia, USA, where a couple of Reiki practitioners interviewed by the Charleston Gazette point out that psychic readings and advice for the lovelorn are not part of Reiki.

In Concord, New Hampshire, we meet a globetrotting retired couple who have a room in their lakefront home set aside for Reiki.

In Northampton, Massachusetts, the Cancer Connection, an agency
that has been providing Reiki and other services for cancer patients, is facing serious financial shortages and seeking donations
to continue its services.

And in Maine, an eloquent letter to the editor of the Bangor Daily News recommends the use of Reiki and other natural therapies as an alternative to addictive pain medications.

In Connecticut, we discover that nursing students at Yale University will now have the opportunity to study Reiki there as part of the program.

Reiki turns up at another American university this week, at East Carolina University, where the recent Wellness Japan event included a Reiki demonstration.

Not to be outdone, Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, also offers Reiki for students.

In Denver, Colorado, we find a mention of Reiki an article with the intriguing headline, "Partnering with Horses to Help Humans Heal."

From there, we move on to Germany, where the roleplaying game Sacred: Underworld has been updated to allow players to give each other Reiki when playing over a Local Area Network. We haven't played the game ourselves, so if you do, let us know how it goes and whether you get any Reiki from other players.

Finally, this week's edition of The Reiki Show podcast takes us from Reiki Show headquarters at the International House of Reiki in Australia to Chicago for an interview with Rick Vrenios of The Reiki Council about journeying to some of the earth's most sacred sites.
