Japanese Usui Reiki classes with Shihan Roberta Barnes

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.  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 Gokai is the key to Health and Happiness; in class I explain the depth of meaning in those 5 short lines an how to live the Gokai . 

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 or 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.


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 .  

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

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 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. 



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 first complete Shoden (level one) with me.

 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 and practice 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

In this level your wave of consciousness becomes higher and higher and you can feel yourself becoming onw with the universe. Shipiden is very deep spiritual growth and translates into English as 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 completion of the second level/degree in the style you will be studying with me.

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 not completed the second level in either Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai with me, but you have completed the teacher’s level in another style of Usui Reiki Ryoho the fee is $500.00. You will receive the first manuals and extra class time as needed to cover all Japanese exercises in the second level/degree.  Many people find it more beneficial to first complete the second level in either style with me. 




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.
