Note: Please don't let the title of this study alter your perception of the purpose and scope of this research. The is a dual study of vampirism with a concentrated secondary focus on energy workers, psionics, psi abilities, et. al. Both topics will be treated independently in the analysis phase with limited correlations between the two communities. This means that you can be a practicing energy worker and not identify with vampirism and still complete large portions of this survey that do not specifically reference "vampirism" - upwards of 40% of the 988 questions asked. This study is very familiar to the vampirism community throughout 2006; and now that we have successfully obtained enough data for variation within that community we are directly working with energy workers to add to the already existing large volumes of data we've collected regarding psi abilities and experience. PLEASE consider assisting this important study by completing BOTH the VEWRS & AVEWRS research surveys and e-mailing them to psi@vampiresurvey.com. Read all the information that follows carefully with particular notice to the sections that refer to "energy workers". Thank you for your time and participation!

The following is a comprehensive layout of all matters regarding the Vampire & Energy Work Research Survey (VEWRS) & Advanced Vampirism & Energy Work Research Survey (AVEWRS). Please carefully read the material presented below as much of it is both important and new as of the date of this letter or posting. For those who have previously been unaware of this soon to be year long study of those who identify themselves as real sanguine, psi, living, or modern vampires and/or energy workers conducted by fellow members of both communities, please visit the web site below for the complete purpose, significance, definitions, ethical, and privacy guidelines governing this study:

http://www.vampiresurvey.com

Please allow the text below to serve as the latest updated information regarding this study aside from content listed on the primary web site.

Important Dates, Instructions, & General Information:

I. Deadline: We will accept surveys through March 31, 2007, however, while we are involved in the data entry and pre-correlation phases you will be able to mail in your surveys past this date until the web site file download and response e-mail is ultimately disabled. In order to facilitate the data entry schedule we’ve established, the sooner you complete your surveys and submit them the easier it will be to move this study closer to the final analysis and results stage. Please do NOT procrastinate when it comes to completing these surveys. They do not have to be completed in one sitting and you may take your time and revisit them as often as needed; being careful not to forget to save the survey file you are working on before closing. As you finish a particular survey please e-mail them to response@vampiresurvey.com

II. Vampires & Energy Workers: There is a common misconception that these surveys are only written for those who identify with modern, living, or real sanguine or psi vampirism. While 55-60% of the content of these surveys apply almost exclusively to vampirism related topics, the remainder was designed to account for those who identify with energy work, no longer identify with vampirism, or identify with both components. Presently, response from the exclusive energy worker Community accounts for less than 8% of the total response received to date, however, any base group inclusion of this size as a variance point warrants its own branch of classification. Therefore, let us attempt to explain how responses from both vampires and energy workers will be grouped in the data tree and subsequently correlated.

For this study we will be using a model that accounts for divergent branches of the top level variants or groups; those who identify as vampires or vampires who also identify as energy workers and those who identify only as energy workers. Only the applicable questions for energy workers will be compiled for the independent study of this branch; primarily the demographic, personal, medical, familial, spiritual, cross-over community background, paranormal, past-life, meditation, psi-related, energy perception, manipulation, tools, techniques, etc. Having this general body of data for both self-identifying vampires and energy workers will allow us to conduct a linear and non-linear multiple regression and correlation of these two communities. The potential for this shedding light into the interrelationships, similarities of abilities or conditions, and overall mentality or perception, is of extreme interest in both a psychological and sociological context. Therefore, if you are an energy worker who does not personality either identify with, or even believe in vampirism, you will be able to answer all questions that do not contain the word “vampire or vampirism”; as an awakening, spirituality, energy work, general perception and experience of self relates to facets of both communities.

A. Instructions For Vampires & Energy Workers:

i. If you are a vampire role player or do not believe in living vampirism (either sanguine or psi) and have come into possession of these surveys please do NOT participate unless you identify with and practice energy work.

ii. Carefully read pages two through five / nine before answering and complete all portions of the survey(s) to the best of your ability without outside assistance or influence.

iii. Your responses are VERY important no matter how extensive your involvement or background. These are completely neutral surveys - it matters NOT which path, religion, belief, or affiliation you hold. Do NOT include personally identifiable responses to any written answers. We do NOT under any circumstances wish to know who you are for any number of ethical and liability reasons.

iv. Complete BOTH surveys and return to: response@vampiresurvey.com

B. Special Instructions For Energy Workers Only:

i. Complete BOTH the VEWRS & AVEWRS – If you do NOT intend to complete BOTH surveys then do not participate. Much of the VEWRS will be “Not Applicable”, however, all questions concerning demographics in sections 1 to 3 and that do not contain a specific reference to vampirism in sections 4 to 11 are viable and important material for analysis. The AVEWRS contains a high concentration of energy work questions and paranormal background in sections 1 & 2. Although, please answer the questions in sections 3 to 5 that are applicable to energy workers or the general populace.

ii. Question 988 is perhaps the most important question on the entire survey, in that it allows the respondent to include any and all material they deem important regarding their respective communities that is not included in the VEWRS & AVEWRS.

iii. It is not the intent of the researchers to portray the Energy Worker Community or Vampire Community as mutually inclusive of one another. We are well aware that both communities do not always acknowledge, support, or agree with one another and therefore will treat both sets of data as independent variables in their own right and both will receive separate sections of publication. However, certain data points that present as aberrant or unique both in comparison and contrast to these communities will be explored.

iv. Please note your answer carefully on question #285 {Other: Energy Worker_} of the VEWRS and question #383 & #384 of the AVEWRS. These are the criteria markers we use to categorize vampire and energy workers in the SPSS data analysis program.

v. If you exclusively identify as an energy worker please return your completed surveys to: psi@vampiresurvey.com

While we have already began sorting energy worker from vampire responses received during 2006, this new system in 2007 will provide a more streamlined approach to expedite the processing of data.


III. Statement Regarding Otherkin & Therian Communities: It’s clear there is distinct crossover between these communities and elements of these surveys that may be answered by those who identify with Otherkin (hybrid questioning and Otherkin identification questions), however, unless one also identifies with energy work and/or vampirism these surveys are not designed for these communities. Additionally we have received numerous e-mails from the Otherkin and Therian community asking if we would either create a survey of the same detail or at very least consult with their community in the formation of such. To be honest our focus is and needs to remain on the vampire and energy worker communities. We fear to spread ourselves to areas that we may be unfamiliar with or have only a superficial knowledge would be disingenuous and ultimately a disservice to those communities. While we would be happy to consult on technical aspects regarding the structure, focus, distribution, and balance within context of these communities; it’s our opinion both the Otherkin and Therian community should begin dialog if they are serious at having this idea properly transform into something productive rather than a rushed composition that fails to achieve the goals and sample size desired.

IV. VEWRS & AVEWRS: Please understand that BOTH surveys need to be completed and returned. The AVEWRS is the concurrent second survey that covers the technical aspects of vampirism, energy work, spirituality, detailed experience, feeding, awakening, coping, identity, etc. background that is NOT covered in the VEWRS. For this reason it is VERY IMPORTANT that those who complete the VEWRS also complete the AVEWRS.

V. Importance & Significance Of This Study: In order for detailed anthropological, psychological, or phenomenological research to be properly conducted on a community or subculture a foundation must first be established and this is one of the primary purposes of this research study. To be able to firmly grasp and understand the elements of this Community, there needs to be an exploration into the shared commonalities, differences, and developing trends in a concise and centralized format. We've received surveys from all parts of the globe, dozens of different paths or belief systems, psi/sang/hybrid, solitary, affiliated, the young, the old, community leaders, and newly awakened alike. Your participation and moreover your encouragement of others to participate in this important study directly impacts the success of this project.

The sheer difficulty and massive undertaking of this study can best be expressed in the figure located at:

http://www.vampiresurvey.com/images/VampireCommunityDiagram.jpg

Inside the outer and inner ring represents the real vampire community and the overlapping rings both the influence and involvement from both different subcultures and individual segways into the Community. Although best expressed in spherical form, all circles or communities overlap with each other to varying levels of degree. Not everyone uses the same terminology, not everyone is of the same mentality, not everyone is friendly with one another, not everyone who adorns fangs and hangs out at Goth/vamp gatherings are vampires by the same token that not everyone who meditates and practices rituals are natural energy workers, not everyone is left hand path, not everyone is affiliated with a House, not everyone has heard of major vampiric or energy worker forums, individuals, books, etc.

One important thing we have come to realize thus far from this study is that there are legitimate and level-headed communities in parts of the World we never realized that are literally begging for others to speak with in their area, develop a cohesive structure and organization, and even translate important information into their native tongue. It makes no difference of your individual path; this is a universal study directed towards the specific subset of the real vampire and natural energy worker subculture and we are sincerely seeking participation from all paths, orders, and beliefs without the desire to infringe or violate the tenets or private inner teachings of any particular group. There are numerous underlying significant benefits to all of us and how we are perceived that have the potential to come from this research and everyone that honestly personally identifies with real, living, modern, sang/psi vampirism and/or energy work should invest their time to complete these surveys.

Translations: Both surveys are available in English, French, Spanish, German, & Russian. However, machine translations (professional business/corporate grade program) were used on all non-English translations and while effective do not always yield ideal results. Therefore, if at all possible please try to complete the English version or if needed complete the written sections in the language of your choice; as several members of our staff understand and speak the majority of these languages.

Completed Responses: response@vampiresurvey.com

All submissions will generate an auto-response verifying that we have successfully received your survey(s).

Energy Workers Please Note: If you identify exclusively as an energy worker please send your responses to: psi@vampiresurvey.com

Receipt Verification Chart: This chart is located at the bottom of the main web site. Use this chart to verify receipt of your completed surveys. Please note that if you cannot identify yourself on this chart then we likely have NOT received your surveys!

Research Schedule - Data Entry, Correlation, Analysis, Interpretation, Findings, & Conclusions:

The specific agendas of the individual research analysis meetings are technical in nature but a general overview will be provided as a matter of record in summary form at the close of each month. Details concerning the schedule for August through December 2007, which will include preliminary data release, review, discussion, and publication, will be available later this year. Each individual response from the VEWRS & the first section of the AVEWRS will be correlated and/or linked where applicable in various permutations to highlight both similar and dissimilar trends among responses and written responses grouped and interpreted accordingly. Responses will not simply be tallied without intensive cross-correlation & interpretation of written responses. We are utilizing methods covered by Creswell, Hayes, Cohen, and others regarding both qualitative and quantitative research methodology, applied statistical approaches from a social science perspective, predictive modeling, and multiple regression and correlation analysis as well as examining a plethora of papers and publications concerning baseline comparison data and related studies. Throughout the course of our analysis we will be working directly with a variety of professionals and academic faculty in a consultation and statistical verification capacity. Additionally we will work multilaterally with vampiric and energy practitioners in positions of leadership, influence, and experience to ensure transparency and the accurate or factual depiction of our own Community.

Closing Statement:

We sincerely appreciate every moment you spend taking these surveys, value each word written, and every question or conceptual critique and clarification you provide. If there are questions on the surveys that do not provide adequate choices and/or that you disagree with, then utilize the "Other", free response, or even the margins to indicate such. We welcome you to write any and all information you would like to see covered in this study as well as open to any constructive criticism leveled on the part of those who have chosen to participate. If you feel the need to provide clarification to your answers let us assure you everything that is written does not go unnoticed and will be taken into account in the analysis. Instead of criticizing aspects of the surveys that you disagree with, take the power into your own hands to explain to us why in your responses. Those thought provoking arguments will be printed as a matter of record alongside the conclusions and interpretations - this study is a living and dynamic document for the entire Community and this is why it is so important to draw from diverse viewpoints.

The Community ultimately determines the outcome and quality of information received in this study; thus justifying calls to those who have been instrumental in the formation, mentorship, teaching, and overall leadership of the Community to step forward and convey their mature and insightful perspectives through the framework of these surveys. We appreciate the fact that these surveys are being used as resource, teaching, and self-reflective tools, however, to be of particular value in this study they need to be returned. Please encourage others on forums, groups, ezboards or yuku, e-lists, meetups, and within your local Community to participate in this unprecedented study of real vampirism and energy work. Our staff is available to answer questions so don’t hesitate to contact us. We sincerely appreciate your participation in this research endeavor and will strive to analyze and treat the responses we receive with the utmost professionalism. Thank you!

The Deadline For VEWRS & AVEWRS Submission Is March 31, 2007

PLEASE DON’T PROCRASTINATE - SET ASIDE TIME TO COMPLETE THESE SURVEYS ASAP!
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT, PARTICIPATION, & ENCOURAGEMENT OF OTHERS!

We’ve gotten numerous questions from individuals inquiring as the scope, format, and design of the questions on these surveys. We realize the previous post was extremely long so hopefully addressing several key points now will satisfy any questions you may have. The surveys are designed for both vampires and/or energy workers / psions with roughly 55% of the questions vampiric related and 45% of the questions energy work, psychokinetic, OBE, astral, and general technique related. Both topics are treated individually, therefore one does not have to acknowledge the other, as only pertinent questions to each group are being analyzed (ie: it is OK that you do not believe in psi or energy vampirism and still participate in this study). This study was drafted and edited in part from those within your own community and is managed by a staff of eleven individuals who’ve been conducting this research since March 2006. We’ve gathered nearly 300 surveys responses on the VEWRS and over 100 responses on the AVEWRS. It’s important to complete both surveys (if there is a topic that is non-applicable feel free to indicate such), the surveys are research surveys – not tests, the VEWRS covers background, paranormal, and other demographics with primary focus on vampirism, and the AVEWRS covers in depth energy work and spirituality with supporting focus on vampirism. Therefore, both surveys need completed as there are critical data points spread throughout both that directly address the energy worker community. All completed surveys may be sent to: psi@vampiresurvey.com Below you will find a sample of 12 questions from the surveys so that you may better understand the type of energy worker/psionic questions being asked. Your participation in this study is VERY important, please assist us by completing and returning your surveys ASAP + we need your direct encouragement of others within the energy worker community to participate. Thank you!

Official Update: 07 February 2007

We placed the following update in image format located at the link below for easier viewing. In less than one week we will be releasing some very important preliminary analysis charts and information regarding 10 sample questions from the VEWRS (see image). This will allow those who have either not been aware of this study, skeptical of the intent or purpose, and otherwise non-participatory to see a series of preliminary findings based on the sample we've collected without having to wait until the end of 2007. We calculate that between 650 to 950 man hours will need to be spent coding the responses from these surveys into the SPSS program and thus we are seeking the largest possible response. Prior to this sample release we are calling on the assistance of all those who have participated in this study to encourage everyone within the OVC or OEC to complete BOTH these important surveys - this is a task we can't shoulder alone and still have the time to devote to data entry and correlations at this stage. We are especially seeking the encouragement of others located in Europe and other non-U.S. countries and from those who reside on hidden or not so well known forums and obscure/local sites/e-mail discussion lists. Most everyone in this community is connected to at least 10-20 other individuals who are connected to that many more and so forth - an internal networking effort to spur participation in the VEWRS & AVEWRS with positive concise feedback and not long-drawn out posts is more effective than anything we can do on our end. We realize it's a monumental task for some to answer 988 questions, however, taken a little at a time is quite manageable and many actually find it rewarding as a self-reflective or teaching tool. Please read the material located on the image and help us increase the response rate over the next week prior to this release and the coming month ahead. We thank you for all that you are able to do to gather support for this study and appreciate your time and effort!

The following is a preliminary raw data sample release compiled from 334 (309 vampiric) responses to the VEWRS received from March 22, 2006 through February 18, 2007 covering questions 001, 004, 006, 008, 030, 037, 137, 155, 172, 236, 246, 262, & 285 of the VEWRS. Please note questions from the AVEWRS (2nd part of the study) are not included in this preliminary release but will be forthcoming at a later date. Let us stress that this data is NOT in final form as this study is still ongoing for another 60+ days, NOR does it represent any correlations with other questions found in this study that will be done later this year; ie: Respondent #271 answered X on question 042, Y on question 394, chose option Z on question 643 on the AVEWRS which is unique because it shows a pattern relating to question 488, etc. Hence, drawing anything other than superficial conclusions regarding the representations of the sample received would be ill advised at this time. This preliminary sample release of information is to give everyone in the Community a sense of the scope and importance of their individual participation, NOT to offer analysis or interpretation of these graphs having not completed our research – that aspect will come later this year.

Information regarding this study has been released or distributed to 78 real vampirism or energy work forums, 91 Yahoo groups, 87 MySpace groups, 26 regional Meetup groups, 1,196 individuals on LiveJournal, 1,668 individuals on MySpace, 570 individuals on Yahoo Messenger, 2,567 individuals through direct e-mail, and countless other online and offline groups, Houses, et. al., and individuals throughout the World. There are many behind the scene activities that are never seen as we work to ensure the surveys are presented to the largest possible population of self-identifying sanguine, psi, modern, or living vampires.

We encourage those in positions of leadership or respect who operate forums, sites, groups, Houses, et. al., etc. to notify their members of this study by all appropriate means available and work directly with us to ensure the largest possible response for this Community study. It may be surprising for some to learn not everyone knows of this study - just because it’s posted on a forum or on a web site doesn’t mean everyone who’s a member pays attention or comes across the post. If you are one of the ones who have been previously been unaware of this soon to be year long study of those who identify themselves as real sanguine, psi, living, or modern vampires and/or energy workers conducted by fellow members of both communities, please visit the web site below for the complete purpose, significance, definitions, ethical, and privacy guidelines governing this study.

The most important thing to remember is we need as many responses from the OEC/Psion community as possible (like to at least have them account for 10% of the total sample taken), therefore, we need the encouragement of others to complete these surveys. There is much that can be learned about this community as the questions in the final analysis will be split/branched into "vampiric" and "energy worker" - hence two different colored bars/graphs on incidence rates per applicable question. We've already noticed a higher rate of Autism & Asperger's Syndrome among the Energy Worker community that closely mirrors that of the Vampiric community - these numbers may appear low but are actually quite high when in comparison with CDC, NIH, or WHO standards. The same holds true for rates of Asthma (4.2x rate), Migraines (2.1x), Panic Attacks (17.4x), OCD, and anxiety in general + facinating information regarding collective spiritual beliefs. PLEASE take the time to complete these surveys and help benefit the knowledge about the psion/energetics community - these surveys are NOT just about vampirism despite how they may appear. Thank you!

Please return as many VEWRS (Part 1) & AVEWRS (Part 2) surveys within the next week as possible. The data acquisition portion of this study is finally winding down as we celebrate the one year anniversary and we need all outstanding surveys finished and returned ASAP! Consider this message “Last Call” as we do not intend to send out future reminders.

The Vampirism & Energy Work Research Study is officially a year old and the formal process of accepting surveys will come to an end in about one week on March 31, 2007. While we code both the VEWRS & AVEWRS into the SPSS data analysis program and review all qualitative (written) answers we will accept surveys at the same response@vampiresurvey.com e-mail through the month of April but will no longer be openly encouraging participation or sending any reminders past the official deadline this month. Over 370 self-identifying vampires and/or energy workers have participated in this study that began on March 22, 2006; a response far in excess of what we had ever expected to receive. We’ve collected volumes of information that we hope will directly aid the better understanding of our Community, abilities, and state of being or condition. At present we have over 232,000 individual data points and hundreds of pages of written information representative of virtually every path, belief, age group, geographic region, and level of experience within the Community. In order for detailed anthropological, medical, psychological, or phenomenological research to be properly conducted on a community a foundation must first be established and this is one of the primary purposes of this research study. To be able to firmly grasp and understand the elements of this Community, there needs to be an exploration into the shared commonalities, differences, and developing trends in a concise and centralized format. It’s our sincere hope that everyone has benefited from participating in the VEWRS & AVEWRS and that our final analysis will be useful to our Community.

VEWRS Preliminary Sample Charts: http://www.vampiresurvey.com/statistics.html
Questions: 001, 004, 006, 008, 030, 037, 137, 155, 172, 236, 246, 262, 285

AVEWRS Preliminary Sample Charts: Will be released on/about March 31, 2007
Questions: 392, 398, 413, 479, 549, 557, 573, 669, 794, 827, 831, 871

To Those Who Haven’t Taken The Surveys:

If you identify as a real energy worker or psion, PLEASE take the time to complete BOTH of these important surveys and help increase the quality and size of the sample. We know these surveys seem long at first glance but when you sit down and actually begin, the questions most often go by quicker than expected. We sincerely appreciate every moment you spend taking these surveys, value each word written, and every question or conceptual critique and clarification you provide. If there are questions on the surveys that do not provide adequate choices and/or that you disagree with, then utilize the "Other", free response, or even the margins to indicate such. We welcome you to write any and all information you would like to see covered in this study as well as open to any constructive criticism leveled on the part of those who have chosen to participate. If you feel the need to provide clarification to your answers let us assure you everything that is written does not go unnoticed and will be taken into account in the analysis. Instead of criticizing aspects of the surveys that you disagree with, take the power into your own hands to explain to us why in your responses. Those thought provoking arguments will be printed as a matter of record alongside the conclusions and interpretations - this study is a living and dynamic document for the entire Community and this is why it is so important to draw from diverse viewpoints.

Questions: research@vampiresurvey.com

We are available 24/7 to answer any questions, concerns, or technical issues you may be experiencing.

To Those In Positions Of Leadership, Elders, Or Otherwise Known & Respected:

There are a limited number of days remaining that we will be accepting returns for this study and your responses are very important as they potentially lend a unique and tenured insight in the VC and EC. We encourage those in positions of leadership or respect who operate forums, sites, groups, etc. to notify their members of this study by all appropriate means and work directly with us to ensure the largest possible response for this Community study. Just because information is posted on a forum or on a web site doesn’t mean everyone who’s a member pays attention or comes across the post. Many rely on the opinions and approval of others before choosing to participate, therefore, we appreciate any assistance you are willing to lend in this, the final days.

Web Site & Download: http://www.vampiresurvey.com

Completed Responses: response@vampiresurvey.com

Submission Deadline: March 31, 2007 + 1 Month Grace Period

FAIR WARNING: Once The Response E-Mail & Survey Files Are Removed From vampiresurvey.com; The Study Is OVER – There Will Be NO Extension Past This Point. Do NOT Procrastinate & Miss Being A Part Of This Important Study

All submissions will generate an auto-response verifying that we have successfully received your survey(s).

Troubleshooting:

If for any reason you can't view either the VEWRS or AVEWRS in MSWord please copy/paste the HTML - Text Only Versions into a word processing program of your choice and complete. See HTML - Text Only Version links below:

http://www.vampiresurvey.com/VEWRS.htm
http://www.vampiresurvey.com/AVEWRS.htm

Please understand that BOTH surveys (VEWRS & AVEWRS) need to be completed and returned. The AVEWRS is the concurrent second survey that covers the technical aspects of energy work, spirituality, detailed experience, awakening, coping, identity, etc. background that is NOT covered in the VEWRS. For this reason it is VERY IMPORTANT that those who complete the VEWRS also complete the AVEWRS.

Energy Workers & Psions Please Note: All matters regarding the VEWRS & AVEWRS are now located at the web site above. If you have not looked into this study lately or dismissed it at first, you will want to visit this site and catch up – we are seeking responses from energy workers, psions, magick practitioners, mages, and those who generally consider themselves awakened (vampirism is only one component of these studies – all other energy work matters stand on their own and will be treated as such in the analysis). Please update all bookmarks and if you have not already done so please finish these surveys ASAP and submit them to: response@suscitatio.com

Thank you for taking the time to complete these important surveys and helping create a body of empirical data and knowledge for the energy worker / psion community!

Fellow energy workers,

We need to wrap up the data collection portion of this study and move full time into the analysis phase since we have to deliver a presentation to other energy workers in Ohio in late June at MUST have a completed set of data at that time. We know it’s a lot to ask, but we’d like everyone to at least attempt to finish the first survey (VEWRS) and submit to us no later than May 31, 2007 – this survey is the shorter one and takes little time to complete. If you have time to complete the second survey (AVEWRS), you’ll find the content to be highly concentrated on energy work and psionics, though we need the VEWRS for background and psionic foundation material at a minimum. Try to complete both, but if you can’t, at least finish the VEWRS and e-mail it back to us at response@suscitatio.com

The energetic community response over the last two months alone has increased dramatically as many are finally realizing this survey is NOT just about modern vampirism nor do you even have to acknowledge or believe in psi or sanguine vampirism! Furthermore, we are treating both communities independently, careful to give equal time to each, and taking time to answer the questions asked of us one by one. Countless hours have been spent thus far entering over 270,000 data points from the EC and VC in what is literally the largest study of its kind ever conducted. This data will be a record for the community to examine itself from an ethnographic and phenomenological viewpoint in more detail than ever before. Please take the time this weekend or during the coming week to sit down and complete these surveys - your responses are very helpful and needed more than you may realize!

I thought everyone may like to see the most recent charts we've had time to draft showing energy worker response to the VEWRS survey. Response is at 10.97% for the exclusive energetics community; a 200% increase from where it was February 20th. Additionally, approximately 85% of the 430+ vampire respondents when asked if they personally identify as an energy worker responded "yes" and went on to answer in detail section two of the AVEWRS. Thank you for your help and if by chance you or someone you know have yet to complete at least the VEWRS survey (for demographic purposes at the very minimum) then they have until Saturday mid-afternoon if they wish their data to be included at the House Kheperu Open House presentation on June 23rd in Medina, Ohio, USA (45 min South of Cleveland) as we have to have time to prepare charts, etc. (For more information see www.kheperu.org - 'Gatherings' or www.michellebelanger.com). Any surveys sent to us after Saturday will go in the massive pile to be entered into SPSS later this year. Thank you for your participation!
