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.

When you commit to spending the minimum twelve hours in classes and then practicing outside of classes the universal vibrations of unconditional love and harmony not only fill your mind, body and spirit but shine out to touch others. The Japanese exercises and techniques that you are shown in classes you can review at any time in the detailed student manual not available to anyone who is not a student, These manuals 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.

July’s Usui Reiki Koryukai is Sunday  July 15, 12:30 – 2:30 PM. This is a time for those whose pathway is open to Usui Reiki to share and receive from others the vibrations of love and harmony flowing through them. I do the advanced Japanese technique Gendai Reiju on each person attending and everyone attending receives in the Reiki Mawashi and Shudan Reiki Ho.  A $10 donation is asked.


Down the Rabbit Hole workshop will be Sunday July 29 from 12:30 until 3:30 PM. First you will be guided through slaying any dark monsters that might be illusively hanging out in your closets. Next will be guided meditations into past lives and then a guided meditation to see the image of yourself that no one else can see. This $40.00 workshop will be a fun way to let go, and see how far down the rabbit hole you can go. Pre-registration is required.


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 into 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

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

Komyo Reiki Kai Shoden classes Fridays August 10, 17 & 24; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.  

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden classes Saturdays September 8, 15 & 22; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM


Third level/degree  is the level/degree when you can see clearly that Usui Reiki Ryoho is not a series of empowerments (attunements), but a journey toward perpetually being filled with peace, tranquility, and joy. Certificate of completion of second level/degree is required when registering. Your wave of consciousness that has become higher and higher now can become one with the universe while you transcend all symbols and other training wheels. Through advanced exercises you can create your life more actively, and while Usui Reiki flows purely through you, you have a strong connection with your true self and know the essence of healing

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

Komyo Reiki Kai Okuden classes Tuesdays October 2, 9 & 16; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.  

Gendai Reiki-ho Shinpiden classes Saturdays October 6, 13, & 20; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM


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, and you are shown the second of the three major technique in Usui Reiki Ryoho.  The symbols Usui Sensei created are introduced to use until Byosen Reikan-ho is second nature to you.   Through Japanese exercises and techniques your ability to resonate with Usui Reiki is enhanced

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.
