Japanese Reiki classes & meditationNestled quietly among the trees Gendai Reiki ho & Komyo Reiki Kai Classes, Healing Sessions, and Guided Meditations take center stage in creating and maintaining Wellbeing in Mind, Body and Spirit.


Styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that embrace the essence in which it was created by Mikao Usui, such as Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, guide you to your natural state of well being.

Energy healing is the phrase commonly connected to Usui Reiki Ryoho, but the meaning goes deeper. <What is Reiki>


Mind, body, spirit and energy field (aura) are not separate from each other. Usui Reiki (a piece of universal energy) flows to the core of cells/atoms/molecules in need in the mind, body, and spirit together to bring healing balance and surround with harmony.

What is in balance and surrounded with harmony heals in the best way for the life receiving at that moment in time.  

While you cannot see or touch Usui Reiki, you can see the healing effects of pure Usui Reiki.  As you are guided to weave the meaning of each of the five simple lines that Usui Sensei brushed in 1921 you can find balance and harmony weaving into your daily life.  <Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai


Your mind, body and spirit being pain free while having a clear head is a beautiful way to live each present moment.

Your life is but a collect of present moments.


In this present moment you can go to my Meditation & beyond page and enjoy my Bluebird guided meditation. <Meditation and Beyond>

The first important question everyone asks when he or she hears Reiki is, What style of Usui Reiki Ryoho do you practice or teach?

I (Shihan Roberta Barnes) practice and teach Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai as I learned directly from the creator of each style. Each of these styles was created in Japan by a Japanese Shihan (instructor/teacher of high standing), and each embraces the quintessence of what Usui Sensei (honorable teacher) created and was practiced in Japan in the 1920s.  

While these styles recognize that the world has changed since 1922, neither Gendai Reiki-ho nor Kmoyo Reiki Kai has added in things from any others practices. 

Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai focus on the life receiving returning to his or her natural state of wellbeing.  Japanese exercises guide you to allow balance and harmony to come to the inharmonic cells/atoms that are causing the illness or injury. What is in balance and surrounded with harmony heals in the best way for that life form; each life is unique as well each illness/injury in mind, body or spirit.  <Learning Japanese styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho> 


The second question everyone askes is,  Who did you directly study under, and do you teach and practice as you learned from him or her? 

 I (Shihan Roberta Barnes) was blessed to be able to complete the highest level directly under Hiroshi Doi who founded Gendai Reiki-ho, and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto who founded Komyo Reiki Kai; this allows me to teach all four levels in each style. I honor each of my Japanese Shihans for their dedication to keeping the piece of universal energy we call Usui Reiki and the practice of Usui Reiki Ryoho pure.  I teach each style in the essence in which it was taught to me in 2002 and 2003. 

Hiroshi Doi Sensei and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei each have only two Japanese Shihans between himself and Mikao Usui   <What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai 

The piece of universal energy we call Usui Reiki in its pure form does not mask symptoms. It flows to the cause of the illness, injury, etc. that is causing the pain and other symptoms; at the core of the atoms it begins and speeds healing in mind, body and spirit together. When mind, body and spirit heal together the receiver experiences the well-being that is best for him or her and the quality of life can improve. 

Being complementary to other positive healing modalities, all injuries/illnesses treated by a licensed healing professional can heal faster and better than expected when Usui Reiki is added into the healing process. <What is Usui Reiki>

Imagine being wrapped in the warm blanket of the balance and harmony of pure Usui Reiki.  As inharmonic vibrations are brought into balance and are surrounded with harmony well-being in mind, body, and spirit naturally happens. heal.  <healing sessions>

2020 was a year of challenges. This is a paragraph from one of my monthly newsletter I send to my students,  “While you are doing what is best to keep others and yourself safe, take time throughout the day to focus on positive things. Disasters happen, they are not good but they pass leaving us with lessons; disasters do not define our lives unless we allow them to. 2020 © Shihan Roberta R. Barnes 


Learning Usui Reiki Ryoho as practiced in Japan in the 1920s allows you to step away from the negative around you, and focus on universal unconditional love and harmony.  <What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>  


This piece of universal energy we call Usui Reiki is the healing vibrations of unconditional love and harmony.  Vibrations are everything; they are around, above, beneath and within us.  You create vibrations with all of your actions and thoughts. 


What is in-balance and in-harmony heals, often faster and better than expected. <What is Usui Reiki>


Learning styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that honor Usui Sensei’s original quintessence is best done in-person so there is a direct connection between student, and the universal energy flowing through the Shihan (master instructor).
As with many things in life, Reiki myths have been created <10 common myths>

Usui Reiki is light, in its true nature it is pure light”. international © 1999


Our life force energy, Our Ki/Qi energy,  and energy in meridian lines can become stagnate; our inner healer can malfunction. Usui Reiki can restorethe flow of all energies.  <healing sessions>


Usui Reiki forms a restorative healing rhythm within the whole life form Integrated healing at its best! 


Each person and each illness or injury is unique. Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai honor that uniqueness. Beginnng in Shoden (first teachings), exercises guide you to feel where Usui Reiki is needed at that present moment and to uncover the true universal you. You are shown how to go beyond Reiki symbols and designated hand positions. 

 “There is no path to happiness, happiness is the path”.– Buddha


Learning to weave Usui Reiki into your life without complications helps you to be more harmonious.  

Have you ever noticed that harmonious people are the healthiest and happiest?  Happier people are usually more sociable, productive, energetic, more likely to be in satisfying relationships, and generally live longer. 


Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai go beyond hands on healing to bring the healing balance and harmony to mind, body and spirit together as needed. In Shoden (level one) you are shown how to easily cleanse your whole self, which includes activating and cleansing your chakras and everything in your energy field (aura).   <learning Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai>


Usui Reiki is a piece of universal energy so it is never out of stock, does not have office hours and does not stop working on holidays. From the moment your pathway is opened in the Shoden level, Usui Reiki (universal love and harmony) flows through you at all times and in all places as needed.  <What is Usui Reiki>

Gendai Reiki-ho has a much deeper meaning than the English translation of ‘Modern Reiki method for healing’Hiroshi Doi Sensei, founder/president of Gendai Reiki-ho describes it as, nothing fishy, nothing odd, nothing difficult. international ©  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

The spiritual practice Usui Sensei created does not discriminate.  Styles honoirng Usui Reiki Ryoho are for all people, animals, birds, and other life forms. 

Usui Reiki flows to where is needed in mind, body, spirit and everything in the energy field of all forms of life. 


As your awareness expands through the hours in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai classes and practicing exercises, peace, tranquility and joy can become your life’s internal GPS. 


Usui Reiki  cannot be measured, manipulated, or touched, but it is as real as the air you breathe and the gravity that keeps your feet on the ground. You may not be able to see the force of a magnet that attracts things, but the attraction cannot be denied.

Just as gravity does not require symbols to bring anything down once it has been thrown into the air, Usui Reiki does not require Reiki symbols for it to flow. <What is Usui Reiki>


Styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho, such as Gendai Reiki-h & Komyo Reiki Kai,

are integrated healing at is best;

improving the quality of life in all areas. 


Integrated healing is not a new idea, as we see in Plato’s words–“The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole”.   

When your mind, body and spirit are in-balance and with harmony, a healing rhythm begins that can make all areas of your life take on a magical glow. 


In classes I help you to recognize the importance of the present moment.  Your life is a collection of present moments; when each moment is in-balance and with  harmony health and happiness naturally follow.Shihan Roberta R. Barnes ©2004


Gendai Reiki-ho, Komyo Reiki Kai  and my guided meditation help you to replace the habit of looking for problems with seeing possibilities.

When you are in the habit of looking beyond a problem to see the solution life changes gears; listening to Finding Your Solutions can help you to get in the habit of switching gears.

 You are much more than the atoms that make up your physical body. 


Through the meditations I teach in classes and my original guided meditations you can find answers in the stillness, and feel your own life’s rhythm,

The first guided meditation on Finding Your Solutions guides you into meditation.  The second guided meditation helps you to form the habit of looking beyond problems, enabling you to see possibilities.  <Meditation & Beyond>


An example of the power within the stillness  is after years of meditation and then 3 years of daily disciplined Zen meditations Mikao Usui attained enlightenment, opened to an actual piece of Universal Energy, and  created his original Usui Reiki Ryoho. <read What is Reiki


The natural abilities you were born with can sometimes become overshadowed by opinions of others, experiences or technology. 

You can regain those abilities through the exercises and meditations you are guided through in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai classes, daily meditation as shown in meditations classes or through one or more of my original guided meditations. <guided meditation and Reiki healing packages> 



Join with the many people around the world who are enjoying the simple healing balance and harmony of the profound healing spiritual practice/healing art that Mikao Usui founded in 1922.


2013 center summer 2As you can see, the classes I teach in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, and healing sessions are offered in my healing studio in Maine.

Usui Sensei’s original spiritual practice/healing art brings Reiki healing and learning in Maine the healing light of balance and harmony in every season.

Usui Reiki is similar to the sun that shines, trees that grow and snow that falls from the sky without human interaction. 

Universal energy is all around us, but the vibrations of unconditional love and harmony from the highest dimensions require a body to flow through; a body in which a pathway has been opened by a qualified Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan. <learning Gendai Reiki-ho–Komyo Reiki Kai>

As Hippocrates said,  “The physician treats, but nature heals.”
