Reiki Classes & other workshops

All of the factual history, exercises, techniques and meditations requires at least 12 hours in classes.  Outlines of each of the 4 levels in both styles plus Pre-Shoden are on my Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki kai page   or <click here for brief descriptions>  You are given multiple empowerment s as Japanese tradition, but that is just the beginning. The detailed manual given in each level is a combination of my Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in classes.

I break the 12 hours down into three 4-hours classes; the days between classes allows you to assimilate the material and practice exercises.  For students traveling from other States or Canada the number of hours is broken down differently. My monthly Usui Reiki Koryukai and monthly newsletter are two ways of continued support.

One student’s comment — “Shihan Roberta Barnes is an excellent teacher! I’m so grateful to have studied under her and look forward to her workshops. Usui Reiki Ryoho has been life-changing for me.” Karen


May’s Koryukai (gathering) is Sunday May 26; 12;30 -2:30 PM  A time to share with others having completed one or more levels in a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho. We begin with Mawashi, then Shuyo-ho or similar exercises after which I give a focused Japanese Usui Reiki Technique to keep the pathway to the universal energy course clear. Then it is Shudan with each person taking a turn being the receiver in Shudan Reiki-ho.  It is a beautiful time to connect with other, receive and practice Byosen Reikan-ho on others; a $10 donation is asked.

Call 207-445-5671 or contact by Email clicking on  Roberta Barnes  All levels beyond the first require a certificate for the prior level (s).


            The First level is Shoden, which translates as first teachings. It is a powerful entrance into Usui Reiki Ryoho following the essence as in which Mikao Usui created what he referred to as his “method to achieve personal perfection” © international 1999.  The focus is on self-healing & self-growth; when you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world.  You also are guided to allow Usui Reiki o flow into all around you. 

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden classes  Thursday June 13, 20 & 27; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM  

Komyo Reiki Kai Shoden classes Tuesdays June 11, 18 & 25; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM



      Third level  helps you to resonate more fully with universal vibrations of love and harmony and raises your vibrations even higher.  Exercises help you to achieve very deep healing and helps you fully connect with the true universal/authentic you.  The spiritual growth you cam experience prepares you for the teacher’s level if you wish to go on and teach.  In the 1920s  when Usui Reiki Ryoho was first taught in Japan this level was extremely difficult for anyone to reach, and was often referred to as the secret level.                                                                                                                                          
Gendai Reiki-ho Shinpiden (translates into English as teaching of the mysteries) classes Saturdays July 13, 20 & 27; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM  

  Komyo Reiki Kai Okuden (from 2nd level on names of levels vary)classes  Tuesday July 16, 23 & 30; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM


  The Second level  takes you deeper into Reiki light (“light of the highest dimensions” Usui Sensei © universal) as what you learned in Shoden goes to a higher level.  The symbols Usui Sensei created in 1925 are introduced to use until you no longer need them.  Exercises allow you to experience Usui Reiki flowing over distance and into the past and future.  After having completed the first level in a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho, and taken the time to practice exercises, living the Usui Gokia, and feeling vibrations you are ready to go deeper; the meaning of Okuden and Chuden in Usui Reiki Ryoho is deeper teachings.

Gendai Reiki-ho Okuden  classes  Saturdays August 10, 17 & 24: 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM 

 Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden classes Tuesdays  August 6, 13 & 20:  9:30 AM – 1:30 PM

Look closely at this photograph and see three circles to Reiki energy circles the left and above my dog. This was taken inside my healing studio to show a friend the hall leading to the green (waterless) restroom. The circles are Usui Reiki, which automatically flows through me and in this case fills my healing studio.
