Scheduled Classes

Below are currently scheduled classes in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, and guided meditation workshops

Covering the factual history and exercises, techniques and meditations that come directly from Japan, requires at least 12 hours in classes.  Outlines of what is covered to receive your certificate for that level are on my Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki kai page < click here >   or <click here for brief descriptions>  My students receive a detailed manual that is a combination of my Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in classes.

I break the 12 hours down into three 4-hours classes; days between classes allows you to assimilate the material and practice exercises.  Two 6-hour classes are available if traveling from other States or Canada.  Monthly Reiki Koryukai and monthly newsletter are two ways of continued support.

  To register for all classes or workshops Call 207-445-5671 or contact by Email clicking on  Roberta Barnes  

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 registration closed  

The second Level/degree takes you deeper in the teachngs of the spiritual practice that can improve the quality of your life. After having completed the Shoden level in a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho, and taken the time to practice exercises and live the Gokai you are ready to go experience more. As you practice the exercises following your pathway to Usui Reiki opening wider your vibrations move to a higher level; your ability to resonate with Usui Reiki  is enhanced so that you can easily allow it to flow over time and distance. 

Gendai Reiki-ho Okuden classes scheduled for Saturdays February 9, 16 & 23; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM  

Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden classes scheduled for Tuesdays February 12, 19 & 26; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM


Shoden translates as first teachings. This level/degree is a powerful beginning to embracing the essence in which Mikao Usui created his method to achieve personal perfection, which came to be called Usui Reiki Ryoho.  The focus is on self-healing; when you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world.  Usui Reiki begins flowing as soon as your pathway has been opened. Nonetheless, even though multiple empowerments  are given, it is only the beginning.  Through Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations you are guided to weave balance & harmony into all areas of life.  

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden classes scheduled for Mondays March 4, 11, & 18; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM  

Komyo Reiki Kai Shoden classes scheduled for Saturdays March 9, 16 & 23; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM


The first level is Shoden, which translates as first teachingswill be in March 2019. Shoden is a powerful beginning to Usui Reiki Ryoho honoring the essence in which Mikao Usui created his method to achieve personal perfection .  If you would like to take classes in any level at times that are not scheduled I teach private and semi-private classes.  

You have heard when the student is ready the teacher will be there. I extend that to if the student is ready it is best if the teacher can 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.   For students traveling from other States or Canada; I I can do the 12 hours in two 6-hour days to help out with lodging costs.
