Usui Reiki Classes & other Workshops

Below are the currently scheduled classes in the four levels of Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, and the guided meditation workshops. If you cannot attend classes on days listed below contact me as I can schedule on a student’s request; I arrange specific classes for students traveling from other States or Canada.

 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 each level in Gendai Reiki Ho or Komyo Reiki Kai pre-registration with a $50 deposit is required; the balance is either paid prior to class by check, or by cash or check in the first class.  With your receipt you also receive easy driving directions to Natural Healing & Learning Center 46 Crosby Rd, Windsor Maine 04363, which is less than a mile from Hussey’s General Store.

I restrict class size so that each student can ask questions and learn as best for him or her. 

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 are guied through all the Japanese exercises, techniques, and meditations for that level, plus learn the factual history, each level other than Pre-Shoden consists of multiple classes and empowerments (attunements).   Pre-Shoden for young children is a basic four hour class with only one empowerment.

March’s Usui Reiki Koryukai is Sunday March 18, 12:30 – 2:30 PM. A week after most of us will be experiencing Daylight saving time shift it will be nice to have the grounding that sharing Reiki provides. Sharing and receiving with others the beautiful energy that flows through each is definitely healing for mind, body and spirit. A $10 donation is asked.


Down the Rabbit Hole Workshop to let go’  Sunday March 25th from 12:00 – 3:00 PM This is a time when you can let go those feelings memories that are holding you back from living fully. It is sometimes good to have memories; you can be held back when memories have you.  This $40 workshop will begin with an exercise to bench your analytical mind and align with openly viewing the guided meditation journeys that are right for you to see at this time. As you follow the guidance in guided meditations you have the opportunity to expand your awareness. Each will take you into either your past in your current life or into a past life, which you view not from where you wre then but where you are now.


The second level/degree takes you deeper into the essence of Usui Reiki Ryoho and builds upon what you learned in Shoden.  As you pathway to universal energy widens you are guided to weave  the vibrations/energies best represented by all those in and around the earth and moon, and connection with the live giving sun into your daily life. Through Japanese exercises and techniques your ability to resonate with Usui Reiki is enhanced and with practice you can allow universal love and harmony to flow over time and distance easily without symbols.

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

Gendai Reiki-ho Okuden (level two) Saturdays April 7, 14 & 21; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.  

Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden (second degree) Fridays April 6,13,20; 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM.


Shoden (level one) translates as first teachings.  This is the powerful entrance to the method Usui Sensei created to achieve personal perfection. Purpose is self -healing by utilizing Usui Reiki to bring balance and harmony in daily life.  When your mind, body and spirit are in-balance and surrounded with harmony the quality of your life improves; to heal yourself is to heal all that is around you. You are guided through Japanese exercises and techniques, which you can review at any time in the detailed manual based on my Shihans’ manual and notes I took in classes.  The certificate you receive reflects those I received from my Japanese Shihans.

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

Gendai Reiki-ho  Saturdays May 12, 19 & 26; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.  

Komyo Reiki Kai Thursdays May 10, 17 & 24; 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM.


The Third  level/degree once referred to as the secret level gives you the opportunity to make your wave of consciousness higher, with the goal of Oneness with the universe. The intention is to learn how to live day-to-day life in the embrace of the balance and harmony of Reiki light. I teach in the essence in which Usui Sensei created Usui Reiki Ryoho to guide you to create your life more spiritually active and connect with your true universal self.  Advanced Japanese exercises and techniques for your and other’s wellbeing of mind, body and spirit are taught at this level. Through advanced Japanese exercises you can transcend all symbols and other training wheels so that you can easily allow universal energy to flow without complications at all times and in all places. This level prepares you for the Shihan level (4th level) if you wish to instruct at some time.

Pre-registration requires that you either have a certificate in the 2nd level/degree of this style or a teacher’s certificate in a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho.

Gendai Reiki-ho Shinpiden (level three)  Tuesdays  June 12,19, & 26

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.
