Japanese Reiki Classes & other workshops

Gendai Reiki-ho classes and Komyo Reiki Kai classes help you learn to weave the essence of Usui Reiki Ryoho as originally created by Mikao Usui into everyday life, without complications.  In classes you are guided to allow Usui Reiki to flow to you, other people, animals, birds, events and much more.  

The Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations allow you to go beyond suggested hand positions and Reiki symbols.  Each level require at least 12 hours, which I break down into three 4-hour classes.  Students coming from other States sometimes do two 6-hour classes, but six hours can be overwhelming.

Several  students have said, “Time flies in your classes“. <Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki kai page.> . 

A manual that is a combination my Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in their classes, are included; certificates reflect those of my Shihans. 

My monthly Usui Reiki Koryukai and newsletter are two of the ways I offer continued support; when their 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

With the current need to stay home if possible I am  rescheduling class times as needed.  Contact me if you do not see class times in  May or June for a level you want to study.   


Current Monthly Koryukai (ko-u keye) are Sunday April 19 and May 17;12;30 -2:30 PM   A time to step away from the wows of the world, be among others who practice Usui Reiki Ryoho, receive Gendai Reiju from me to keep your pathway clear, take part in Shudan Reiki-ho and enjoy the uplifting energy flowing through and those attending. Being part of universal love and harmony flowing through a group of others allows you to slip into a time when the only focus is wellbeing. All who have competed any level of in any style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho are welcomed.   A $10 donation is asked.


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.  

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden Classes Saturdays April 11, 18 & 25; 9:30 AM -1:30 PM.  OR Wednesdays April 15, 22 & 29: 9:30 AM –1:30 PM

Komyo Reiki Kai Shoden Classes Wednesdays May 6, 13 & 20; 9:40 AM – 1:30 PM. 


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.  Classes for this spiritual level will be offered in June or July.

The Second level which is deeper teachings after having completed Shoden, taken time to practice all exercises and meditations, and become comfortable with Byosen Reikan-ho.  Classes will be offered in July or August.


I teach private or semi-private classes as needed. 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.
