Levels Shoden, Okuden, Chuden, Shinpiden, Gokuikaiden and Pre-Shoden for children listed below.   In all classes I explain the meaning behind the Japanese words for each of the exercises and techniques; the need for this is obvious as in one exercise the meaning is the exact opposite then when written English words.


Beginning Reiki classes

Shoden translates as first teachings. This level/degree is a powerful beginning to Usui Reiki Ryoho honoring the essence in which Mikao Usui created his method to achieve personal perfection .  This level is reflected in the article I wrote,  It may appear small, but it is powerful”. 

The focus is on self-healing; when you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world

When your mind, body and spirit are in-balance and with harmony, a healing rhythm begins that can make all areas of your life take on a magical glow. 

The Usui Reiki Goka is the key to Health and Happiness; in class I explain the depth of its meaning in those 5 short lines. 

This is a $175.00 investment you make to improve the quality in all areas of your life. 


 If it is not possible to travel to the Natural Healing & Learning Center nestled quietly in the trees in Windsor Maine, USA,  I will travel to teach a group of people. Call 207-445-5671 or Email  Roberta R. Barnes for possible dates. 

In both Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai I guide you to allow yourself to become the channel/vessel/instrument through which a piece of the source flows automatically to all that is around you as needed.


In classes you come to know why you exist at this time and this place ©; as I introduce Usui Sensei’s ‘first‘ awakening you learn the importance of Now and being aware of what is new to you. 

The manual you receive in each level is backup for the level in Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai you are studying at that time. Each is a combination of Doi Sensei’s and Hyakuten Sensei’s student manuals, and the notes I took in their classes; factual history and the Japanese exercises, technique and meditations are included in detail.


Usui Reiki level two                              The meaning of Okuden is deeper teachings; Chuden follows the same essence.  As you vibrations raises and your practice the exercises your ability to resonate with Usui Reiki  is enhanced so that you can allow it to flow over time and distance.

You are guided to let balance and harmony flow to vibrations from your past that might be harming you today. What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you now.


After having completed the fist level in a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho, and taken the time to practice you are ready for this level/degree as you go deeper into the spiritual practice Usui Sensei founded. 

A certificate for the first level for a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho is required when registering for this level.

 This level is $275.00 if you have completed the Shoden level in either Gendai ReIki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai with me.   If you have not completed Shoden in either Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai with me you will receive a Shoden manual along with the manual for this level/degree as well as time after classes as needed.   I ask an extra $25.00 for this; many students find it most beneficial to take the Shoden (level one) first.

 This spiritual practice Mikao Usui founded is a personal growth journey; you can uncover the true universal you while you are healing in the best way for you as well as those around you.  Gendai Reiki-Ho and Komyo Reiki Kai helps you to strengthen your ki/chi as well as your life force energy. 

One of my students wrote — “I just don’t even have the time to write down all the ways that Reiki is pouring into my life and those around me.  I feel so blessed and grateful.  Each day is like an adventure deeper into Love and Light.” — Jenny

After each level you can resonate more fully with the vibrations of love and harmony.  Your awareness and self-growth expands as you:


Level three in Usui Reiki Ryoho

This is the level/degree of deep spiritual growth, it translates into teaching of the mysteries. In those early years when Usui Reiki Ryoho was first taught in Japan this level was extremely difficult for anyone to reach This requires at least 12 hours in classes and completion of the second level/degree in a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho.

If you have completed the second level in Gendai Reiki Ho or Komyo Reiki Kai with me,  the fee is  only $375.00. 

If you have completed the third level in another style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho this spiritual level where you transcend all symbols will be helpful to move forward on your journey. If you have not completed the second level in either Komyo Reiki Kai or Gendai Reiki-ho  extra time after class and copies of the Shoden and second level manuals will be needed; I ask an additional $100.00 for this. 

Many past  students have found it more beneficial to complete the Okuden or Chuden level/degree with me first to fully embrace the Japanese exercises and techniques included in this level/degree.



Usui Reiki training for children

The younger we are the less filters we have put in place to block out new ideas.  Children easily open to Japanese styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho, which makes their future path in life smoother.

AThis is a  $115.00  ($80.00 for children age seven and under) investment in a child learning that with balance and harmony everything in life goes smoother. When the child later wants to study the Shoden level with me I offer a discount to him or her for that level.


 To know more about Japanese styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho and the benefits of  Japanese exercises and techniques you can read about Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo /reiki Kai on this site or contact me at 207-445-5671.





Teacher level in Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho

This is the level when you combine all your studies together into a rhythm that allows you to invite others into the light (Usui Reiki). There are two purposes for completing this level.

I offer a internship that all each person to review and learn at his or her pace.  I suggest and offer that upon completion of this level the student can attend any classes in any of the prior levels for review at no charge.

The first purpose is to complete the circle allowing for continued personal growth. The second purpose is wanting to be able to teach Gendai Reiki-ho as Hiroshi Doi created or Komyo Reiki Kai as Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto created, with no alterations. Both Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki are spiritual practices as Mikao Usui intended.

The prerequisite for this level is either a certificate of completion of Shinpiden in Gendai Reiki-ho, or Okuden in Komyo Reiki Kai (third level/degree),

Hiroshi Doi-Sensei said, “It is more proper to call it a training course for Reiki teachers than another step.”  You should have already learned to transcend symbols and other such supports prior to beginning this level.

At this level you do not “do” Reiki, you have the goal of becoming Usui Reiki for personal growth.   There are no known recorded documents of anyone reaching this goal, but each step of the journey is blissful. Usui Mikao in his humbleness rated himself as a two rather then a one even though he was described as a furnace of energy; since that time no one in the Gakkai has rated themselves higher then a three.  This is the reason why this is the master instructor level and not master of the piece of universal energy we call Reiki level.

This includes many hours of instruction, exercises, practice, integrated empowerment, Reiki Shihan manual, and completion certificate. A certificate for Shinpiden (Level III) in Gendai Reiki Ho or Okuden in Komyo Reiki Kai is required before taking this level — $895.00

As I learned from Hiroshi Doi, review of levels you have completed is good.  My students can sit in at no charge on classes of levels they have completed with me.  Those having completed the Gokukaiden level sit in on even the Shoden level to remind themselves of the importance of the beginning of this blissful journey.
