Scheduled Classes

Below are the currently scheduled classes in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, and the guided meditation workshops.  To secure your seat pre-registration is required for all classes and workshops.

You deserve to be told the factual history stretching from Mikao Usui’s birth to his passing (death), and be guided in all the Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations for the level you are studying.  Each level that I teach, other than Pre-Shoden for children, gives you 12 hours of instruction and a detailed manual for that level only available to my students. Each manual is a combination of my Japanese Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in their classes.  The certificate you receive reflects those I received from Hiroshi Doi and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto. 

Each level is three 4-hours classes; I do two 6-hour classes for , except for my students traveling from other States. The space between classes gives you time to assimilate and practice.  I have a monthly Reiki Koryukai, send out a monthly newsletter and have other support for my students.

Pre-Shoden for young children is a basic four hour class with only one empowerment (attunement). In all other levels multiple empowerments are given as per Japanese tradition. <Read more >

December 2nd from 12:30 – 3:00 PM  is the Let Go & let the magic begin WorkshopThis is perfect for anyone who has a problem relaxing.  You begin with relaxation exercises to clear mind clutter, following will be a guided meditation to let go of those times from your past that steal your attention away from enjoying the present moment, followed by a guided meditation to open up. The last guided meditation will be a delightful journey into your own positive imagination, which can happen once the analytical mind is put on hold. This is the perfect workshop to help you to relax the analytical or logical thinking mind, and allow the creative mind to awaken and expand.  As a treat for the upcoming holidays this workshop is only $35.00


The first level/degree is Shoden, which 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 .  As per Japanese tradition multi empowerments (attunements) are give, but that is only the beginning.  Through many Japanese exercises, techniques, and meditation you can learn to resonate with Usui Reiki and feel inharmonic and harmonic vibrations.  The focus is on self-healing, self-growth; when you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world 

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden classes are  Saturdays December 1, 8 & 15; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM

Komyo Reiki Kai Shoden classes are Thursdays November 29 and December 6 & 13; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.  


The third level/degree is a very spiritual level once referred to as the secret level. You are guided to allow Usui Reiki to flow more purely as your pathway opens wider and you realize yourself by Reiki Wave that improves your spirituality and expands your awareness.  You are exposed to advanced Japanese exercises and techniques that also give you the opportunity to completely be your true universal self and make your wave of consciousness higher with the goal of Oneness with the universe. You can create your life more spiritually active and begin to think, my inner soul is thinking, talking, building, and performing for me, which prepares you for the teacher’s level if you wish to go on.

Registration requires a certificate for the second level/degree in the same style, plus months of practice with the second and first level exercises, meditations and techniques.

Gendai Reiki-ho Shinpiden classes scheduled for Tuesdays January 8,15, & 22, 2019; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM  

Komyo Reiki Kai Okuden classes scheduled for Saturdays January 12, 19 & 26; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.   


Level/degree two classes are scheduled for February 2019.  There are so many exercise, and techniques in each level that it requires time between levels to do the daily practice that raises your vibration to prepare you for the next level in your journey.

I extend that to if the student is ready it is best if the teacher cn make arrangements to be there.  If certain days or times are better for you then what I have scheduled you can contact me to see what days for classes can be arranged. I also teach private and semi-private classes.  For students traveling from other States or Canada; I I can do the 12 hours in two 6-hour days to help out students with lodging costs.  Call 207-445-5671 or contact via Email Roberta R.

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. 


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.
