 Continuing Education ProviderI am an Approved Provider by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Body work (NCBTMB) for continuing education credits–an added bonus if you are a massage therapist. 


For all levels in Gendai Reiki Ho or Komyo Reiki Kai pre-registration with a $50 deposit is required , which is your commitment to learning as Mikao Usui said, “A method to achieve personal perfection”. When registering you will be given easy driving directions to Natural Healing & Learning Center 46 Crosby Rd, Windsor Maine 04363 less than a mile from Hussey’s General Store.

 I restrict class size so that I can give more attention to each Gendai Reiki Ho and Komyo Reiki student. As I learned from Hiroshi Doi, review of levels you have completed helps your growth; I allow my students to sit in on classes of levels they have completed with me at no charge

Those registering for classes  who have never felt pure Usui Reiki sometimes schedule a mini Japanese Reiki healing session with me prior to the first class; I answer any questions at that time.  <read Japanese healing sessions>


To make certain that you receive all the instruction  for Japanese exercises, techniques, meditations and factual history, each level other than Pre-Shoden consists of multiple classes and empowerments (attunements).   The Pre-Shoden for young children is a basic four hour class with only one empowerment.  

 December’s Usui Reiki Koryukai (gathering)  is Sunday December 17, 12:30 – 2:30 PM.  For those having studied any level of Usui Reiki Ryoho it is a time to reconnect, and interact with others on the same path and enjoy.  You receive Gendai Reiju as well as taking part in Reiki Mawashi and Shudan Reiki (everyone hs the opportunity to be the one receiving). This is a safe peaceful gathering that focuses on the healing balance and harmony of the original spiritual practice Usui Sensei founded. A $10 donation is asked.


Down the Rabbit Hole Workshop’  Saturday December 30; 12:00 – 3:00 PM.  This $40 workshop is a series of guided meditation journeys that take you into your past that is right for you to see at that time. With each guided meditation you can go deeper into your past, as is right for you.  You might find that you uncover skills that can help you in your life today.  The question you will be answering is how far down the rabbit hole do I want to go’. The Call  207-445-5671 or  Email Roberta Barnes to reserve your seat.

 The second level/degree takes you deeper into the essence of Usui Reiki Ryoho. Symbols are introduced to use until you no longer need training wheels. As your experiences deepens through the exercises, your ability to resonate with Usui Reiki  is enhanced so that you can allow universal love and harmony to flow over time and distance.  The level builds upon Shoden and therefore a certificate for the first level in a style honoring the essence in which Usui Sensei founded Usui Reiki Ryoho is required when pre-registrating.

Gendai Reiki-ho Okuden (level two) classes are scheduled for Tuesdays January 9, 16 & 23, 2018.; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.  

Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden (second degree) classes are scheduled for Saturdays January 13, 20 & 27, 2018.; 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM.

Shoden (level one)  Shoden translates as first teachings.  This 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 growth and self-healing; when you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world. 

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden classes are scheduled for Saturdays February 10. 17 & 24, 2018.; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.  

Komyo Reiki Kai Shoden classes are scheduled for Thursdays February 8, 15, & 22 2018.; 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM


If your life schedule does not fit with scheduled classes I can schedule classes for other dates; private and semi-private classes can be an option.  Call 207-445-5671 or contact via Email Roberta R. Barnes  to see what other days or times are available.

I sense Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai  as yin and yang, so once you have studied a level in either style with me I offer a discount for the comparable level in the other style. I teach all four levels in both Gendai Reiki Ho and Komyo Reiki Kai.

When you resonate with Usui Reiki there is an inner joy as you feel an energy so right that it is difficult to explain to anyone who has not felt a piece of universal energy flowing through his or her mind and body.

In classes once you let go any mind clutter allocating that healing must be complicated, you can see what is simple is also profound. <read more about learning Japanese Reiki> 

 Your life is a collection of present moments; when each moment is filled with the balance and harmony health and happiness naturally follow.

Reiki energy circles   Looking  at the photograph to your left you will notice something three circles to the left and above my dog.  This was taken inside my healing studio to show a friend the hall leading to the green restroom I had added. The circles are Usui Reiki which automatically flows through me and in this case fills my healing studio.




I  will travel to teach Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki to a group of people. The size of the group depends upon the distance of travel; contact me for more details. Call 207-445-5671 or Contact Roberta R. Barnes by Email for details.
