Classes & Workshops

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.

The Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations with these Japanese styles require at least 12 hours of instruction.  You deserve to be able to learn all that is each level, so I give each student those hourts broken down into three 4-hours classes so that you can assimilate what is new to you. The manuals given out for my students only are a combination of my Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in their classes.  The certificate you receive reflects those I received from Hiroshi Doi and Re. Hyakuten Inamoto.

Pre-Shoden for young children is a basic four hour class with only one empowerment (attunement). In all other levels multiple empowerments are given flowing the way Usui Reiki Ryoho was created and practiced in the 1920s and 1930s in Japan. <Read more >

 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. 


Pre-registration with a non-refundable $50 deposit is required when registering for any level in Gendai reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai–that is your commitment to your healing journey.  The balance can be paid prior to class, or in the first class by check or cash. With your receipt you receive easy driving directions to Natural Healing & Learning Center Windsor Maine 04363, less than a mile from Hussey’s General Store.

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.  <Japanese healing sessions>



One of the best ways for you to keep yourself in that place of balance and harmony is by joining in the monthly Reiki Koryukai.  September’s Koryukai is Sunday September 16 from 12:30-2:30 PM. It is only 2 hours, but in that time you are surrounded by Usui Reiki.  Two hours of being immersed in Usui Reiki is wonderful for your wellbeing. You also receive Gendai Reiju from me, which keeps your pathway clear and raises your vibrations. A $10 donation is asked.

Third level/degree  is when you can see clearly that Usui Reiki Ryoho is not a series of empowerments (attunements), but a journey toward Daianshin (a state where the mind is perpetually filled with peace, tranquility, and joy). 

Certificate of completion of second level/degree in the same style is required when registering. The depth in in the second level in styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho coming from Japan in which your vibration/wave of consciousness becomes higher and higher prepares you for this very spiritual level.   You now can become one with the universe while you transcend the need to use symbols and other training wheels. Through advanced exercises you can improve the quality of your life more actively. While Usui Reiki flows purely through you and you form a strong connection with your true self the essence of healing become apparent.  

Pre-registration is required; with your receipt you will receive easy driving directions to my healing studio.

The second level/degree  builds on Shoden and takes you deeper into the essence of Usui Reiki Ryoho. The focus in this level is allowing Usui Reiki to flow over time and distance. In this level you are shown the second of the three major technique in Usui Reiki Ryoho, which builds on the first that you learned in Shoden.  The symbols Usui Sensei created are introduced to show you the amazing healing that are covered by this piece of Universal energy. Through Japanese exercises and techniques your ability to resonate with Usui Reiki is enhanced and you are introduced to the harmonious collaboration requird for complete healing.

Pre-registration requires a certificate for level one in a style honoring the quintessence in which Usui Sensei founded Usui Reiki Ryoho.

The remainder is paid in the first class.  Some students find it easier to prepay in full by postal mail . If you have any questions about the classes or registration feel free to call me, Shihan Roberta Barnes, 207-445-5671.

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.




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.
