Classes In Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai and meditation workshops

In Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai in-person classes you are guided to weave universal vibrations of unconditional love and harmony into all areas of your life.

Scroll down to see dates and times of my scheduled Reiki classes. Guided Meditation workshops are below Reiki classes.  

 Usui Sensei said his spiritual healing art is the key to health and happiness. The Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations you experience in classes guide you to use that key in the best way.  The multiple initiations/empowerments/reiju (attunements) that I give in each level are just the beginning. 

You can read about something, listen to a lecture, or watch it being done, but to know requires experience.

In-person classes is how you gain that experience. Any style honoring original Usui Reiki Ryoho cannot be learned from a book, DVD or over distance. 

There are no shortcuts with the universe. 

In each of my classes I offer enough time for students to experience the exercises, techniques and meditations so that he or she can merge with and know the piece of universal energy flowing through him or her.. Included in each level is a © student manual only available to my students. These manuals are comprised of my Japanese Shihan’s © student manuals and the notes I took in their classes.

The first three levels include three 4-hour classes to learn history, exercises, techniques and meditations coming directly from Japan without being overwhelmed.  Time between classes gives you time to practice and form any questions for the next class.  <for complete descriptions of each level and fees click here>


 When students are traveling from another State, or Province, I vary class times to help with trave, Nevertheless, I do not cut back on the important hours of in-person instruction that each student deserves.  

Certificates of completion are given at the end of the last class in each level.  Students can still contact me with questions after classes or in my monthly Koryukai in which students of all levels share energy and insights and ask questions. 


My students best explain what they experience in my classes and the healing that happens.  

“The classes were planned and organized well.  They evolved at a good pace, with time to practice and incorporate into daily life.  The principles/teachings really are priceless and something that can be beneficial in all areas of life, regardless of continuing the Reiki journey/next levels.” — Ashley

Note that after Shoden the names of the next three levels are different between Gendai Reiki-hp and Komyo Reiki Kai even though each was founded in Japan by a Shihan with only two Shihans (teacher of high standing/master instructor) between himself and Usui Sensei.  

For details about each level in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki kai, and fees click here  


Shoden, the First level, is to attain self -healing ability and to learn how to utilize Usui Reiki to weave the healing balance and harmony into all areas of your life.  The focus is on self-healing, self-cleansing and self-growth. When you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world.  Japanese exercises guide you to feel vibrations that tell you where your hands need to be and for how long to hold them in that place.   After the completion of Shoden (level 1) you can connect to the light of Reiki within at any time and in any place without worrying about symbols or hand positions.

The Third level , is often referred to as an extremely deep spiritual level. In the level your awareness increases, and your vibration become even higher through the Japanese exercises that take you beyond matter. While you are introduced to the fourth symbol, you transcend all Reiki symbols and move on  to make purer connections. Students have often said after completing this level they know why this level in Gendai Reiki-ho translates it translates as teaching of the mysteries. Preparing you for the fourth level, or teacher’s level, it contains exercises taking you so deep in a meditative state that students often feel/know a connection that cannot be described in words. The last of the three most important techniques is also shown.

Komyo Reiki Kai Okuden Classes Wednesdays June 12, 19 & 26; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM:


In the Second level you are opened to more of the universal vibrations, which allows you to improve the quality of your ability to allow Usui Reiki to flow.  You are introduced to the three symbols Usui Sensei created in 1925, which helps you to understand the depth of Usui Reiki Ryoho healing.  The second of the three most important techniques in Usui Reiki Ryoho is shown in this level.  Universal energy does not recognize the human measuring of time and physical distance, as your awareness expands through Japanese exercises you can experience the healing of Usui Reiki transcending space and time.

Sunday May 5th is the Down the Rabbit Hole’ workshop: from 1:00 – 3:30 PM.  It will begin with a guided meditation to release any mind monsters that have been holding you back. You do not have to identify the monsters or even know what created them.  From there it will be a series of guided meditations guiding you into a conscious forgotten time in your current life, or a past life that is right for you to see at that time. The question you will be answering that day is ‘how far down the rabbit hole can I go’. The fee is only $80.00 in cash or check.

Reiki energy circles

Look closely at this photograph above.  Do you see three circles to the left and above my dog Suri?  He was too young at this time to sit quietly in classes, but he still enjoyed the universal vibrations of love and harmony that are within my healing studio.  

On one of the many visits to my healing studio, this was taken to show a friend the hall leading to my green (waterless) restroom.  When you have an adorable loving dog, you naturally allow him to be in the photo. 

The circles are energy/Usui Reiki circles. Reiki light (translation) fills my healing studio because of the universal vibrations of love and harmony always flowing through me in healing sessions and my students and me n classes.

As you move through the levels your pathway is opened wider to the piece of universal energy we have come to call Usui Reiki, and love and harmony shines from you.  <learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai>

I will travel to teach either Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki to a group of people. The size of the group required depends upon the distance of travel; contact me for more details. Call 207-445-5671 or Contact Roberta R. Barnes by Email for details.
