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

Mind, body and spirit are not separate from each other; what affects one affects the others. Usui Reiki flows to all so that well-being of the whole life naturally happens, improving the quality of life. <Healing sessions>


Your mind, body and spirit being pain free while having a clear head is a

beautiful way to live every present moments.

Your life is but a collect of present moments.


Usuii Reiki is the universal vibrations of unconditional love and harmony that flows to the core of atoms in need and then shines outward healing at a unique level that creates Wellbeing.  <What is Reiki>


The first question we all asks is, What style of Reiki do you practice or teach?

I (Shihan Roberta Barnes) practice and teach Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai. Each of these styles was created in Japan by a Japanese Shihan (master instructor/teacher of high standing) and each embraces the quintessence of Usui Sensei’s (honorable teacher) original spiritual practice/healing art as was practiced in Japan in the 1920s.

Different styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho are practiced in different ways.  < What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>


The second question we all asks is,  Who did you directly study under, and most importantly 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 allowing me to teach, directly under Hiroshi Doi who founded Gendai Reiki-ho, and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto who founded Komyo Reiki Kai.

I respect each of these Japanese Shihan’s knowledge; each has only two Japanese Shihans between himself and Mikao Usui.  I also respect each of their dedication to keeping the piece of universal energy and the practice of Usui Reiki Ryoho pure.   I teach each style honoiring the amazing essence in which it was taught to me in 2002 and 2003.  <Shihan Roberta R. Barnes>


Gendai Reiki ho and Komyo Reiki Kai focus on weaving the piece of universal energy we call Usui Reiki into all areas of your life.  <learning Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho>

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



Usui Reiki in its pure form does not mask symptoms; it flows to the cause of the illness, injury, and symptoms to begin and speed healing in mind, body and spirit together.  Being complementary to other healing modalities, those injuries/illnesses treated by a licensed healing professional can heal faster and better than expected when Usui Reiki is added into the healing process.


Our life force energy, Our Ki/Qi  and energy in meridian lines can become stagnate; our inner healer can malfunction. Usui Reiki can restore the flow of all energies.   <What is Reiki, What is Usui Reiki ,What is Usui Reiki Ryoho>       


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.  While you are shown the key to health and happiness in the first class of Shoden (first teachings), exercises guide you to feel where Usui Reiki is needed at that present moment and to uncover the true universal you.<becoming a Gendai Reiki-ho practitioner>


2020 has been a year of changes and I am sharing a paragraph from one of my monthly newsletter for 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  


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


Learning to weave Usui Reiki into your life 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.  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai>


Usui Reiki does not shut down on holidays or have office hours. 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


How I teach is best described by my students here and on other pages: 

“To those of you who are thinking of enlightening your lives for the better, I would recommend taking classes from Roberta R. Barnes. I have taken . . . <read more>


Another student wrote She is truly the Real Deal, unpolluted and pure, a fountain of love and harmony.  If you are truly looking for a pure honest and factual learning experience then you need to spend time with Roberta <read more


Continuing Education ProviderI am an Approved Provider by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Body work (NCBTMB) for continuing education credits. After completing any level in Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai you can give your client’s that extra without changing the way you already do massages.  Also, in each of the first 3 levels you are shown a technique that you add into your sessions for extra healing when appropriate. 


Gendai Reiki-ho has a much deeper meaning than the English translation of ‘Modern Reiki method for healing’Hiroshi Doi Sensei, founder 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; it is 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 with many things in life, different people say different things.  My sources are from Shihans, including 2 Japanese Shihans I studied directly under, with a close lineages to Mikao Usui.  <most common Reiki myths>



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



Universal energy does not have office hours, take holidays off or have complicated rituals.  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.<what is Reiki>

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.  At the same time, if the higher self of any person or other life form does not want Usui Reiki to flow to him or her, it will not flow–the universe allows free will. 


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”.   


What lies behind you and what lies before you is nothing compared to what lies within you now/this 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


You can see problems everywhere if you look for them. 

If you look for solutions, you can see possibilities.  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.   

Experience natural healing energy

 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; you can feel your own life’s rhythm, find your solutions and see unlimited possibilities.


You can discover possibilities when you look beyond problems; do not ignore problems just look beyond them.  The first program on Finding Your Solutions guides you into meditate and the next helps you to form the habit of looking beyond problems enabling you to see possibilities.  <Meditation & Beyond>


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 shown 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> 



  When every corner of this world is in-balance and with harmony 

there will be World Peace.

You can begin changing your corner Today.


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 in the photographs the classes I teach in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, and healing sessions are offered in my healing studio in Maine.  You can also see that Usui Sensei’s original spiritual practice/healing art brings the healing light of balance and harmony in every season

Reiki healing and learning in Maine .

Usui Reiki is much like 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.”
