Support the vision and offerings of Reiki Home


To Our Volunteers and Donors — We honor and acknowledge your gifts

We acknowledge those unnamed for they served Reiki before Reiki Home’s conscious birth creating a container to receive its emergence. They created a solid foundation, allowing the seed of “home” to be planted. They listened deeply to the call of Reiki unfolding a vision slowly step by step. They continued to come, serving in gratitude, as the global community was recognized – one person at a time. It is from this rich heritage that Reiki Home now flourishes and serves the world in gratitude.

We acknowledge the Usui Shiki Ryoho system of Reiki for it was through this lineage that Reiki Home emerged.

We acknowledge Phyllis Lei Furumoto and Paul Mitchell for providing a rich foundation for growth in this System.

We acknowledge the Reiki Foundation International Board of Trustees who held the energy of a nonprofit organization, willing to wait as the purpose for their work emerged.

We acknowledge the physical location of Kenyon Ranch as the gathering space where the seed of “Reiki Home” was planted, born and began to grow.

We acknowledge the Home Group who held the space for the energy of “home” to appear and for the definition to be become clearly expressed in the poem Home.

We acknowledge the Board of Directors and the Council of Electors who listened deeply to Reiki for the next steps and had the courage and willingness to walk the path of this unfolding journey.

We acknowledge the donors for the thousands of dollars given over the years, for trusting the Board, the volunteers and the staff to guide Reiki Home into a regenerative organization that is welcoming, respectful, and honors all those who seek to live by the values expressed by Reiki Home. Though your names are not listed out of respect for your privacy, your gifts allowed Reiki Home to grow into a global organization serving in many ways so all life can flourish.

We acknowledge the volunteers for giving many hours, sharing your professional skills, and accomplishing the tasks necessary for the global community of Reiki Home to emerge, grow and serve the world.

We thank you
For the dedication and commitment given,
For the skills and talents so generously shared,
For the challenges met and the pain experienced
For the thousands of hours and dollars given,
With our deepest gratitude,
we acknowledge and honor each of you.
You made, and are making, a difference.

Together, we continue to answer Reiki’s invitation to create a “home” where all Reiki students, lineages and established practices are welcome as hand in hand and heart to heart we work together building peace, bringing healing to ourselves and healing the earth.

Since 2009, we have had 126 volunteers from 26 countries served on 28 teams or groups, many serving on more than one. The groups/teams are listed in the order created. Any omission is an error unless a volunteer requested his/her name be omitted. If there is any incorrect information, please contact us. We have done our best to include all who served, or are serving, Reiki Home.
