Reiki Classes & other workshops

The multiple empowerments (attunements) you receive in each level are only the beginning.   Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations for each level require at least 12 hours, which I break down into three 4-hour classes (students from other States can be two 6-hour classes). 

. Several  students have said, Time flies in your classes“.  See details on my Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki kai page. . 

A detailed manual for each level, which is a combination my Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in their classes, are included; certificates reflect those of my Shihans. <brief descriptions of each level> 

My monthly Usui Reiki Koryukai and newsletter are two of the ways I offer continued support; any student when Emails change students contact me so that he or she will continue to receive the newsletters.

 Student’s written comments are shared on various pages. Here I am sharing  –“This was an amazing experience.  There is no judgement and I felt right at home.  Thank you so much! I will definitely be back.” Jessica

  “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

 February‘s Koryukai (gathering) is Sunday February 16; 12;30 -2:30 PM Step away from the wows of the world, be among others who practice Usui Reiki Ryoho, receive the Gendai Reiju from me to keep your pathway clean so that Usui Reiki flows purely, take part in Shudan Reiki-ho and enjoy the uplifting and energy flowing through and surrounding you.  Being part of a gathering of those open to the universal vibrations of love and harmony is one of the nicest things you can do for your wellbeing.  Just in the opening Mawashi you can feel the oneness talked about in Usui Reiki Ryoho classes.  It is only two hours, but is nourishing for your mind, body and spirit.  All who have competed any level of in any style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho are welcomed.   A $10 donation is asked.


The third level once referred to as the secret level, or teaching of the mysteries, gives you the opportunity to make your wave of consciousness higher with the goal of Oneness with the universe.  The Japanese exercises help guide you into deeper spiritual growth, you are open to even higher vibrations than before, and learn how to completely connect with your true universal self. In prior levels you learned Usui Reiki is very powerful when allowed to flow purely as needed.  While the final symbol is introduced, you are guided in how to transcend all symbols and resonate purely with the piece of universal energy we call Usui Reiki; when you  go beyond the need for symbols, etc. you become one with universal vibrations of love and harmony.

Gendai Reiki-ho Shinpiden  classes are Saturdays February 15,  22 &  29; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM

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


The Second level is deeper teachings after you have completed Shoden, taken time to practice all exercises and meditations, and become comfortable with Byosen Reikan-ho.  The focus in this level is allowing Usui Reiki to flow over time and distance as your awareness expands and your vibration raises higher than in Shoden. You are introduced to the symbols Usui Sensei created in 1925 when he moved out to Nakano, a suburb of Tokyo, to expand his healing activities.

Gendai Reiki-ho Okudenclasses Saturdays March 14,  21, & 28; 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM

Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden classes Tuesdays April 7,  14 &  21; 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM 


Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden level  (level one ), which translates as first teachings is the powerful beginning on your Usui Reiki Ryoho journey.   The in-class Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations required to receive your certificate can improve the quality of your life and the lives around you.   This Japanese style embraces the original spiritual practice Mikao Usui founded as exercises guide you to bring mind, body, and spirit together into balance and surround with harmony; what is in-balance and surrounded with harmony heals.  

Classes Wednesdays March  11,  18 &  25; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM — You will note the dates have changed as sometimes happens in the winter months if needed to help out students.

Please note that if you cannot work the scheduled dates into you life’s schedule contact me to see what other dates are possible.

I will teach private or semi-private classes as eeded. For students traveling from other States or Canada contact me and we can arrange the 12 hours in-class time in the best way to help you with lodging costs.  The fourth level allowing you to teach is most often private classes after the student has completed the third level and taken the time to practice all exercises and techniques in all three levels and woven Usui Reiki into all areas of his or her life.

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.
