Reiki Classes & other workshops

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. © Shihan Roberta R. Barnes  

In Gendai Reiki-ho classes and Komyo Reiki Kai classes  you learn to weave the essence of Usui Reiki Ryoho as originally created by Mikao Usui into everyday life, without complications.  

 All the Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations in each level require at least 12 hours in classes; I break down into three 4-hour classes. For students traveling from other States I break down the 12 hours differently to help with travel costs.


Several  students have said, “Time flies in your classes, even thought it’s a lot to digest“. <Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki kai page.> .


In each level my students receive a detailed manual that is a combination my Japanese Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in their classes, and a certificates for that level. 

 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

 For full descriptions and fees for each of the four levels in both styles and Pre-Shoden for young children  <click Here>

$50 deposit is required when registering for all levels in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai.  Being a non-refundable deposit it is your commitment to learning what can improve the quality of your life.  The remainder of the fee is paid in the first class by check or cash; if you wish to prepay simply contact me, I can send you a PayPal or other invoice.   

Once you register you are given easy driving directions to Natural Healing & Learning Center in Windsor Maine 04363, less than a mile from Hussey’s General Store.  

I have hand sanitizer at the door for everyone entering to use and as always I ask everyone to remove footwear so that the outside vibrations are left at the door.

At this time I am commonly teaching private and semi-private classes even though my healing studio is large enough to allow amble space for social distancing. If you would like to complete a level on a month/days different than scheduled simply contact me.



    All levels beyond Shoden (the first) require a certificate for the prior level (s).

Call 207-445-5671 or contact by Email clicking on  Roberta Barnes to register for classes or workshops.


Current Monthly Koryukai are Sunday August 16;12;30 -2:30 PM   The day following Usui Sensei’s birthday is the perfect time to step away from the wows of the world, be among others open to Usui Reiki, receive Gendai Reiju, take part in Shudan Reiki-ho and enjoy the uplifting energy flowing. 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.  A $10 donation is asked.


The Second level takes you deeper after having completed Shoden, taken time to practice all exercises and meditations, and become comfortable with Byosen Reikan-ho. You are introduced to an exercise that translates as deprogramming/out of brainwashing, which is very helpful at this time with all the negative media coverage. What you focus on you give energy to; the focus of Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai is wellbeing. 

Gendai Reiki-ho Okuden (level 2) Wednesdays August 12, 19 & 26 (days can vary if needed); 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM

Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden (level 2) Tuesdays August 11, 18,  & 25 (days can vary if needed); 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM  


Shoden level (level one) translates as first teachings. The focus is on self-healing;  when you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world.  The Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations required to receive your certificate embrace the essence of Mikao Usui’s original spiritual practice/healing art; even the focus is self-healing/self-growth you can allow Usui Reiki to flow to others.

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden Saturdays September 12, 19 & 26 (days can vary as needed); 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM 

Komyo Reiki Kai Shoden Wednesdays September 16, 23 & 30 (days can vary as needed); 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM


The third level once referred to as the secret level, or teaching of the mysteries, is the largest part of the Usui Reiki Ryoho journey where you transcend all symbols. This gives you the opportunity to learn how to transform into oneness with higher dimensional ways.

Gendai Reiki-ho Shinpiden (level 3) Wednesdays October 14, 21 & 28 (days can vary as needed); 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM

Komyo Reiki Kai Okuden (level 3) Fridays October16, 23 & 30 (days can vary as needed); 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM


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.  Do you 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 my green (waterless) restroom. The circles are energy/Usui Reiki circles, which fills my healing studio because of it always flowing through me and my students.
