Reiki CLASSES & meditation workshops

 Each level in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai include hours in multiple in-person classes so that you can be guided through  Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations.  

Learning Usui Reiki Ryoho requires experiencing, You can hear or read about something, but to know it requires experiencing.  Hyakuten Sensei © international 2020 “Reiju (empowerment, which I explain in classes) with “touch”- a visual symbol of an unseen transmission of not just of the healing energy but also of the information. Touch is a means of communication, an expression of unity, a bonding of people.  It is a key to giving and receiving information and to help us bond.” 

Each of the first three levels is broken into three 4-hour classes.  For students coming from another State I arrange the the class times to help with lodging costs, but I do not cut back on the total in-class hours.   <click here> for more information. 


Several  students have said, “Time flies in your classes, even thought it’s a lot to digest“.


  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


I send out newsletters every month.  Any student who does not receive a newsletter I ask that he or she contact me so that I can retype the email address.

  To register for classes or workshops or to ask about other classes  Call 207-445-5671 or contact by Email at Shihan Roberta R. Barnes .   As soon as COVID19 is contained I will post the next Down the Rabbit Hole meditation workshop. 


Continuing Education ProviderI am an Approved Provider by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Body work (NCBTMB) for continuing education credits–an added bonus as Usui Reiki flows without changing the way in which you give massages.  Your certificate will include hours of class time <brief descriptions & fees> 


I limit the size of each class, even though my healing studio is large enough for distancing, and often teach private classes.

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

In each level besides the hours of instruction, you receive a detailed © manual, only available to my students; my manuals are a combination of my Japanese Shihans’ manuals and the notes I took in their classes. Certificates are given for completion of each level. 

$50 deposit non refundable is required when registering for all levels in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai. The remainder of the fee is paid in the first class by check or cash; you can also prepay the entire fee.  

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.

All levels beyond Shoden (first level) require a certificate for the prior level(s). The fourth, or teacher’s, level is most often taught in private classes with days and times varying.

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


>Third level classes take you deeply into spiritual growth, allowing your wave of consciousness to become even higher through advanced Japanese exercises.While the fourth symbol is introduced, you are guided to resonate fully with universal energy as you feel the freedom of transcending all symbols and connecting fully with the Reiki light (translation from Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai text) flowing with you.  

 Gendai Reiki-ho Shinpiden translates as mysteries– Saturdays October 2, 9 & 16;30 AM- 1:30 PM

Komyo Reiki Kai Okuden Wednesdays October 8,13 & 20;  9:30 AM- 1:30 PM 


Note that the levels 2, 3 & 4 are identified by different names in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai.  The difference is the lineage.  Gendai Reiki-ho is straight through the URR Gakkai to me, and Komyo Reiki Kai is from Usui Sensei to Hayashi Sensei to Yamaguchi Sensei to Rev, Hyakuten Sensei (Buddhist monk) to me.



Second level classes take you deeper after having completed Shoden. The purposes are to improve the quality of one’s ability to allow Usui Reiki to flow and learn how universal energy transcends space and time. You are introduced to the three symbols Usui Sensei created in 1925 and Japanese exercises and techniques beyond Shoden expand your awareness. 

Gendai Reiki-ho Okuden– Saturdays November 6, 13 & 20; 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM

Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden Wednesdays November 3, 10 & 17;  9:30 AM- 1:30 PM 



First level classes  The focus is on self-healing, self-cleansing and personal growth; when you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world.  When you are in-balance and surrounded with harmony all around you is touched in a positive way.  You can also allow Usui Reiki to flow to other life forms without complicated methods, and the first of the three important techniques is introduced.  

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden translates as first teachings, Saturdays December 4, 11 & 18; 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM

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.
