Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai are styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that are practiced in the essence in which Usui Sensei founded his original spiritual practice. Through the Japanese exercises you are guided to resonate with a piece of universal energy; as you gain the awareness of feeling the vibrations that bring balance and harmony they becomes your life’s GPS. <read What is Usui Reiki>
While the first level focuses on self-healing you learn on of the three important techniques Byosen Reikan-ho, which is much more than scanning. In the second level while you focus on Usui Reiki flowing over time and distance you learn the second important technique Tanden Chiryo Ho (Gedoku Ho), which is removing toxins from mind, body and spirit. The third level you learn the third important exercise Ketsueki Kokan Ho is very deep cleansing and circulating method.
There are many more Japanese exercises and techniques in both classes and the manual you receive I give the meaning behind each Japanese word as I learned from Hiroshi Doi and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto. The importance of knowing the meaning behind translation is obvious in one exercise as the English translation is the opposite of the Japanese word’s true meaning.
The manual you receive 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 written out in detail.
I remember the smiles on other students faces and mine when studying Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai directly under Hiroshi Doi and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto. I enjoyed the factual history they shared and the depth of their teachings; I honor them both by teaching and practicing in the way they taught me. <read What is Usui Reiki Ryoho >
Because I was blessed to be lucky enough to study Gendai Reiki-ho directly under Hiroshi Doi and teach the way I was taught, Natural Healing & Learning Center is certified by Gendai Reiki Kyokai

As I learned from Hiroshi Doi, review of levels you have completed helps you to grow. I encourage my students to sit in on classes of levels they have completed with me by offering this at no charge .
Usui Reiki is a piece of universal energy that is new to you unless you have had your pathway opened by a qualified Shihan When you allow yourself to feel this new energy, the wonderment of balance and harmony flowing to mind, body and spirit together a beautiful experience. <see current scheduled classes>
from a qualified Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan (master instructor), in a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho, is one of the easiest ways to improve the quality of your life.
No one can change anyone, but your positive vibrations and Usui Reiki flowing through you can help others heal in many ways.
I teach as my Japanese Shihans taught me,except in English: the certificates I give reflect those of Doi Sensei and Hyakuten Sensei.
Gendai Reiki Ho and Komyo Reiki Kai model Usui Sensei’s essence in easily weaving universal love and harmony into your daily life . The only things required to learn these Japanese exercises, techniques, and meditations are listening with an open mind/heart and a desire to learn something new to you.
In my Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai classes exercises guide you to resonate with Usui Reiki in a way that is natural for the rest of your life. Various MDs use tuning forks; you become the tuning fork when Usui Reiki is purely flowing through you,

Usui Sensei said “that by mastering the mysteries of self we learn to affect the mysteries of life”. international © Shoden level focuses on self-healing; when you heal yourself you heal your family, your group, your community and our world.
How I teach is best described by my students:
“To those of you who are thinking of enlightening your lives for the better, I would recommend taking classes from Roberta R. Barnes. I have taken Shoden (level 1), Okuden (level 2), and just completed Shinpiden (level 3), in Gendai Reiki-Ho. It is hard for me to express to others what has happened within me and around me after completing each level. I see the world and those in it differently. The best change has been within myself. I feel more balanced and open to the universe and what it wants to share with me. I feel more happiness and peacefulness then I have felt in a long while. I am finally able to just let go. For me that is a big one. So hard to put into words when the emotions are so overflowing. Roberta is understanding, and all of so many questions she answered patiently.”—Patty C.
“Roberta Barnes is non-judgmental. She creates as atmosphere of safety and acceptance where by a student can . . . <read more>
If you are a massage therapist imagine Usui Reiki flowing to the mind, body and spirit of the person receiving while you are doing the massage just as you have always done.
I am approved by the National Certification Board for therapeutic Massage & Body work (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider, so you also receive credits.
ANIMAL REIKI is simply Usui Reiki Ryoho flowing to an animal that is not a human being. Unlike modern medicine, Usui Sensei’s method is not subdivided into People Reiki, Animal Reiki, etc. You might say it is all-life Usui Reiki Ryoho; in classes I explain that there are no limits to the healing of Usui ReIki; through exercises you experience Usui Reiki flowing to much more than just people. In the higher levels you are guided to understand oneness.
To your left you see a Scottish terrier enjoying a mini Reiki Healing session; people bring their dogs in for healing sessions .
In classes you are guided to focus on wellness and not on an injury or disease; Usui Reiki flows to help heal the receiver in the best way for the receiver at that moment in time.
Gendai Reiki Ho & Komyo Reiki Kai classes include; Japanese exercises and techniques, meditations, and factual Japanese history. Once you receive your certificate and have assimilated Usui Sensei’s (in his words) “Method to Achieve Personal Perfection” universal love and harmony becomes your GPS to improving the quality of your life and those around you.
There are no short cuts to self-healing or self-growth, but both Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai journeys are blissful.
The way your life unfolds is in your hands through which universal unconditional love and harmony can flow.
Knowing the lineage of a Usui Reiki Ryoho practitioner or Reiki Shihan (master instructor), seeing certificates, and asking if anything has been added into that style of Reiki puts you in control of what you want to add into your life. <my lineage>
Scheduled classes are listed on the classes and workshop page, and you can also check with me for other dates.
Grass does not grow from a download, in a few short hours or by reading a book. Birds that fly do not do so from a blueprint in a book, they just do. Once you have been opened to the piece of universal energy Usui MIkao connected with, and listen to your instructor with an open mind Usui Reiki simply flows through you.
“Everyone is born with the right to be healthy and live with happiness, and the path of Reiki helps us to fulfill that right”. © Roberta R. Barnes 2002
In each level/degree each empowerment allows you to be open and ‘be’ in alignment with to higher positive vibrations; when your vibrations change to a higher level you attract higher level vibrations. Through all the exercises, techniques and meditations your self-growth and ability to freely allow Usui Reiki flow is improved. ©
In the way in which Mikao Usui founded Usui Reiki Ryoho it was not something you turned off and on with symbols or other training wheels. Once your pathway has been opened that wave of gently love weaves into all areas of your life without harming anyone or anything. You can notice the enhancement in your life as you resonate with Usui Reiki.
Students have described the way I teach in these ways:
“You are very patient and understanding – a precious find in this world.” – Marty
“It really has changed my whole life. I thought I was pretty versed before; now I know there is so much more:. — Lindy
“She is truly the Real Deal, unpolluted and pure — a fountain of love and harmony. If you are truly looking for a pure honest and factual learning experience, then you need to spend time with Roberta. Her personal emanates Love, Harmony, Knowledge and a Deep respect for all.” -- Nerine
“The way you teach Reiki has made such a positive difference in my life.”– Jason
It is not whether the glass is half-full or half-empty that matters; it is what is done with what is in the glass that matters.

Learning Usui Reiki Ryoho is a blissful journey, and how far you travel is your choice. Each level is honorable. Once you have learned to resonate with Usui Reiki you find yourself smiling as you feel an energy, different from your own life force or Ki, so right that it is difficult to explain to anyone who has not felt it.
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. When I was just a little girl one day my father gave me some important advice, “if you are always looking out the back window, you miss the great things in front of you”.
This level/degree is a powerful beginning to in these Japanese styles that honor 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”.
Through Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations you are guided to experience Usui Reiki filling all cells in mind, body, spirit and your energy field; as you weave balance & harmony into all areas of life you can feel the quality of your life improving.
Byosen Reikan-ho is introduced in this level so that you have no need to memorize symbols or hand positions. Until Byosen/Hibiki become natural to you, you are shown suggested placements for your hands.
You receive a detailed Shoden manual, which includes the Japanese name for each exercise, technique, and meditation; most of the factual history I go over in classes with space for your notes. My manuals are a combination of the manual I received from Doi Sensei’s or Hyamuten Sensei and the notes I took in their classes.

This is a $170.00 investment you make to improve the quality in all areas of your life.
Once you have completed the first level in a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho, taken the time to practice so that you resonate with universal love and harmony, you are ready for this level/degree that takes you deeper into the spiritual practice.
This is a $250.00 investment in going deeper Japanese exercises and techniques that you can weave into your life.
If you have completed the first level or degree in another style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho then you will be given a Shoden manual and additional hours after classes if 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 that Mikao Usui founded is a personal growth journey on which you uncover the true universal you. Gendai Reiki-Ho and Komyo Reiki Kai help you to strengthen your ki, which is beyond life force energy. When your Ki is at its highest and enhanced by universal energy, you have the energy to take on what you may have thought to be impossible.
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
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 $300.00. I offer a discount for my students who want to study both Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai with me.
If you have completed the third level in another style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho extra training and prior manuals will be given; an extra $100.00 is asked for this. Many have found it to be most beneficial to complete the Okuden or Chuden level/degree with me first.
The younger we are the less filters we have put in place to block out new ideas. Young people easily open to Japanese Usui Reiki, which makes their path in life smoother from the age they begin.
I tailor the manual and classes to the age of the child or the group of children learning together.
This level is a combination of Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai.
Because Usui Reiki cannot be directed and symbols have no power. The open minds of children allow them to never require the sue of symbols or other training wheels. As Hiroshi Doi said in class, symbols can slow a person down and cause them to loose their balance.
This is basic 4 hours of instruction and only includes only one empowerment (attunement), but for a child this is perfect.
Some of the exercises for self-growth, given in Shoden are included.
A parent or parent approved adult or older child must accompany the child, which is nice because while she or he does not receive an empowerment or certificate they do get the benefits of the instruction.
A certificate of completion is given along with the manual. This is a $115.00 ($90.00 for children age nine and under) investment in our child learning that with balance and harmony everything goes smoother.
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.
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.
You are shown the importance of teaching what translates as Right Reiki, which is not having to use symbols, odd rituals or material objects. It is teaching to resonate with the profound beauty within the pure flow of Usui Reik.
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 and exercises, empowerments, 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
Some styles have come to call an empowerment Reiju, but as Hiroshi Doi (who joined the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai in 1993) explains Reiju is not an empowerment but a strong focused form of Usui Reiki that depends upon the Reiki Shihan’s intent.
This is Gendai Reiju and not the Reiju that the society Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai currently uses or has used in the past.
Reiju used within the Gakkai is only shared with members of the Gakkai.
The prerequisite for this workshop is to have completed the highest level in Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki, and spent time practicing. Reiju was the term used at one time as the way in which people were originally opened to the universal vibrations of love and harmony. Some call empowerments in Komyo Reiki Kai Reiju, but this is not an empowerment (attunement).
It requires an understanding of direct connection with universal energy, without any training wheels being used. No training wheels/supports such as symbols or kotodamas are used. At gatherings it is customary for a Reiki Shihan to give Reiju to all those attending; this clears any blocks that may have formed in one’s channel and is a wonderful rejuvenating energy flowing through the whole you.
A person will never loose his or her connection to Usui Reiki, but things such as the ego or trying to direct universal energy to do what the human mind thinks is best can taint the universal energy flowing through your pathway.
Tainting of energy reduces the purity and thus we can feel what might be described as a loss in strength.
Reiju is a technique of Usui Reiki Ryoho that has a unique history, which is shared at the workshop.
