Stand up and be counted!

The other day I got a call from a reporter for a major American newspaper. She was on deadline and needed an answer, fast.

I'm sorry to say I didn't have the answer, and I'm hoping you can help.

The question: How many Reiki practitioners, and Reiki clients, are there in the United States?

I explained that since there is no central organization or registry of Reiki practitioners, it's impossible to come up with an accurate guess, let alone an official number. I know there are thousands, because this publication has thousands of readers, nearly all of whom are Reiki practitioners. But are there tens of thousands, hundreds of thousand, even a million or millions of people who practice Reiki worldwide? Nobody knows.

The only way to find out how many of us there are is to start counting.

So please stand up and be counted. Just click here for our Global Reiki Census online form

[Update: Due to the volume of responses, we are now accepting information only via the online form -- not by email or comments. Thanks!]
This census will be ongoing, and we will update the numbers monthly. If you want to receive those updates by email, please opt in for our mailing list, or include the phrase "add me to your mailing list" (or something along those lines) if you submit your information by email.

No duplicate entries, please. Thanks for your help in developing this resource!

Reiki is a wonderful tool that I use not only for healing sessions, but also to enhance my psychic awareness, especially when communicating with animals.

Reiki is a living path, not a practice. The deeper one explores the more one realizes how Reiki can and is integrated into everything we do. Choosing Reiki is choosing to the Healer's Path and the development of the Healer's Consciousness.

To Receive Reiki is to take the time to realign our consciousness (body/mind/spirit) with the natural world, the healthy world.

I love practicing Reiki and like Scott I think that it's a living path, not a practice. There is so much more to Reiki and being a Reiki practitioner than just physical benefits.

I cannot imagine my life without Reiki - taking Reiki training was truly transformational both personally and professionally. And I love being able to offer those same benefits to both people and animals through my writing, sessions and classes.
