Japanese Reiki classes & meditation   Gendai Reiki Ho Classes, Komyo Reiki Kai Classes, Healing Sessions, and Guided Meditations take center stage in creating and maintaining Well-Being in Mind, Body, and Spirit. 

What is Usui Reiki?  As Mikao Usui said, “It is love harmony and healing energy.” © international 2002  Healing energy that is a piece of the source.  <read more> 

Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai each embraces the essence of Mikao Usui’s original spiritual healing art in which he introduced the key to health and happiness The universal vibrations of love and harmony flow to bring the healing balance & harmony to the person, or other life form, not the disease, which results in Well-being for the life receiving.  

These vibrations we call Usui Reiki flow to the core of what is causing symptoms in mind, body or spirit.  At the core they bring balance and surround with harmony. and then shine outward healing at a unique level.

Once cells/atoms/molecules are in-balance and surrounded with harmony healing begins or is enhanced so the person, animal, bird or other life experiences Well-being best for him or her. 

Usui Reiki can increase mental clarity and emotional balance.  It can purifiy karma and help the needed healing in all types of trauma. <What is Usui Reiki>

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 a collection of present moments 

The hours in-person in classes help you to understand the depth of what appears to be simple.  <Simple, yet profound>

As Mikao Usui said, all people and all other life forms have an inner healer.  However, sometimes that inner healer needs help, and Usui Reiki provides that help

As this piece of universal energy gently flows to mind, body and spirit together all you do is lay or, sit enjoying the healing universal vibrations of love and harmony shining outward from the core of the cell(s) in need of healing balance and harmony.  <healing sessions>

Mind, body, and spirit are not separate from each other.         

      When all are in-balance and surrounded with harmony they are in alignment, and the quality of life can improve–sometime in unexpected ways.

Exercises help you to weave universal love and harmony into all areas of your life, feel harmonic and inharmonic vibrations, experience self-growth, expand awareness, and uncover the true you.  <Learning Gendai Reiki-ho/ Komyo Reiki Kai>  <Scheduled classes> 

You can hear or read about styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho, but to experience is to know.  You can experience the healing universal energy duringGendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai in-person classes<What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai

Each person, or other life form, is more than his or her body.  Vibrations from the past can impact you today.   My original Guided meditations into the past have helped many people develop harmony with past events, and uncover skills used in their past lives that could benefit them today. 

Guided meditations have helped others uncover what subconsciously had been holding them back. When giving in-person guided meditations I begin with a non-invasive advanced Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho one minute technique to bring balance and harmony if needed. <healing sessions>

Or you can listen, for free, to my Bluebird guided meditation, which has helped many people discover the good luck that is and has been within them.   < Meditation and Beyond>

The first question everyone asks when he or she hears the word 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 in the essence in which each was taught to me in-person by the founder of each style.  

The world has changed since 1922. Nevertheless, Gendai Reiki-ho and Kmoyo Reiki Ka, as created, each remains true to the quintessence in which Usui Sensei created/founed Usui Reiki Ryoho.  

Because each life is unique, and each illness/injury in mind, body or spirit is unique, healing through Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, as created, is unique to the receiver at that present moment<What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

The second question everyone askes is, “What teacher did you directly study under, what is his or her lineage, and do you teach/practice as you were taught?” 

After years of studying and practicing Western stylesof Usui Reiki Ryoho,  I was blessed in 2002 to complete the highest level in Gendai Reiki-ho in-person directly from its founder Hiroshi Doi who in 1993 became a member of the society Usui Sensei created in Japan.  Gendai Reiki-ho is a style approved of by the elders of this society URR Gakkai.  

I was blessed in 2003 to complete the highest level in Komyo Reiki Kai in-person directly from its founder Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto, who is also a Buddhist monk. 

As Hyakuten Sensei said lineage does not make you better than another, it is simply nice to know who a person has studied under, and if he or she honors his or her teacher.

I honor each of my Japanese Shihans by embracing the quintessence of what each shared in classes.  Each shared what Mikao Usui created/founded, taught, and was practiced in Japan in the 1920s. Neither Doi Sensei nor Hyakuten Sensei added in anything from other practices.

Gravity does not need symbols or anything for it to happen and neither does the piece of universal energy/the source we have come to call Usui Reiki.   <Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai > 

The hours in classes introduce you to filling and surrounding yourself with Balance and Harmony. Have you ever noticed that harmonious people are the healthiest, happiest and good to be around?  <What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

The way your life unfolds is in your hands, through which universal unconditional love and harmony can flow once your pathway has been opened by a qualified Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan. 

During healing sessions the one receiving lays or sits clothed while Universal energy/Usui Reiki: 

Imagine being wrapped in a warm healing blanket of balance and harmony as pure Usui Reiki flows to wherever is needed. <healing sessions>

The spiritual practice Usui Sensei created does not discriminate. Usui Reiki flows to where is needed in the mind, body, and spirit of all people, animals, birds, and other forms of life. 


All styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that embrace the essence inwhich Mikao Usui created are complementary to other positive healing modalities. Many licensed healing professionals add Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai into their practice to give that extra healing.  <What is Usui Reiki>

In Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai the focus is on bringing the healing balance and harmony to what is causing symptoms and healing the person or other life form. .  

In Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai the focus is on Well-being; hands are guided by inharmonic vibrations. Shihans and practitioners do not diagnose, they simply allow Usui Reiki to flow to where is needed/the cause of symptoms and when the cause is in balance and surrounded with harmony the symptoms are no longer present.  If the focus is on the symptoms, it is like putting the cart before the horse and waiting for the horse to fly over the cart.

Imprints of experiences and the feelings they create exist in all of us. If the imprints are negative the subconscious will not easily accept positive ideas. My original guided meditations, healing sessions, and the exercises in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai can help you to replace negative imprints with new uplifting thoughts and positive ideas that are best for you. They help you take your foot off the subconscious brakes preventing you from living fully.     <healing sessions & guied medtations>

2020 was a year of challenges. This is a paragraph from one of my monthly newsletters that 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, but disasters do not define our lives unless we allow them to. 2020 © Shihan Roberta R. Barnes 

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

there will be World Peace.

You can begin changing your corner of the world Today.

This includes all that is in and on land, water and air. 

You might hear or read the words describing Usui Reiki Ryoho, but when you experience, feel the vibrations, you can know the true meaning within the spiritual practice/healing art that Usui Sensei created. This is why multiple in-person classes are required for each level.

Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai, as created, is learning to weave Usui Reiki Ryoho as practiced in Japan in the 1920s into today’s life. This allows you to step away from the negative,and focus on love and harmony. <What are Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

With COVID19 many things changed. Nevertheless, Doi-Sensei, Hyakuten- Sensei and the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (society Mikao Usui founded in Japan) have made it clear that Usui Reiki Ryoho cannot be learned from a book, through DVDs, online, or over distance.

Styles honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho, as created by Usui Sensei, must be done in-person with a qualified Shihan (master instructor/teacher of high standing) “Touch” (laying-on of hands or holding a few inches away) plays a pivotal role in Reiju/empowerment process /attunement.

In styles that honor Usui Reiki Ryoho, there is an unbroken succession of Teachers/Shihans, linked by the sacred touch of empowerment/initiation (attunement), directly back to the founder Usui Sensei. <What is Usui Reiki Ryoho> 

Vibrations are all around, above, beneath and within us.  You create vibrations with all of your actions and thoughts.

The piece of universal energy we call Usui Reiki is the healing vibrations of universal unconditional love and harmony that requires a body to flow through whose pathway has been opened by a qualified Shihan. 

As with many things in life, Reiki myths have been created; the factual history coming directly from Japan is much more interesting. <10 common Reiki myths>

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

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

Usui Reiki is a piece of universal energy; it is never out of stock, does not have office hours, and does not stop working on holidays.  <What is Usui Reiki> 

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

Gendai Reiki-hohas 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 © 1999  

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. 

As Doi Sensei said, “Some may seek self-realization method, or a wish come true method in place of Usui Reiki. The universe allows free will, but these self-realization methods are not Usui Reiki Ryoho”. international © 1999 

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.

Gravity does not require symbols to bring anything down once it has been thrown into the air. Universal energy 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;

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”.   

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

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

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

Exercises in my classes  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.  

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 by uncovering your true universal self through exercises in Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho 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 2Classes I teach in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, and healing sessions are offered in my healing studio in Maine in all seasons.

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

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 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.”  

Today there are many different froms of energy, some good and some not good. Usui Reiki being a piece of universal energy/the source is extremely good,  Usui Reiki Ryoho as Usui Sensei created is a journey to bring you and others back to a natural state of Wellbeing.    

My healing studio nestled in nature is the perfect place to learn the spiritual healing art Mikao Usui created, enjoying a healing session, or discover and heal through an original guided meditation.
