Are you a Reiki practitioner and wish to volunteer? 

Here are some ideas to get you started with volunteering your Reiki services:

Reiki Volunteer Services for People:

  • If you are in Denver, Colorado or metro Detroit let me know by email or by my contact form that you are interested in volunteering and I can let you know of special requests.  Let me know if you are comfortable giving Reiki in a hospital setting, and/or a home setting.  Let me know if you have Reiki insurance.
  • Contact local hospice centers to see if they take Reiki volunteers. 
  • Contact local volunteer organizations to see if they have had requests for Reiki volunteers.
  • Talk to your neighborhood assisted living centers or nursing homes.
  • Contact your local hospital and see if they would compile a list of Reiki, energy healing volunteers for patients.  The Center for Reiki Research (slow site to open) has a list of hospitals that offer Reiki and research on Reiki. 
  • Contact oncology centers in your area to see if they accept volunteers.
  • If you live in Colorado – Life Spark Now – http://lifesparknow.org offers training and pairs healing touch and Reiki practitioners with those facing the challenge of cancer. 

Reiki Volunteer Services for Animals

  • Contact local vetranerians to see if they take Reiki volunteers.
  • Contact local shelters or animal rescues to see if they take Reiki volunteers.
  • Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA): Supporting Reiki practitioners to implement professional, effective and ethical Animal Reiki programs in their local shelters. Click here for a link to SARA animal organization members.
  • Animal Reiki Source:  Animal Reiki Training Classes.

Some organizations offer special training for Reiki volunteer services.  Search out your community for resources.  Please let me know what you find out so I can add resources here.
