Japanese REIKI CLASSES & more

The way your life unfolds is in your hands through which the healing universal unconditional love and harmony can flow. 

plese excuse me for writing Reiki instead of the style of Usui Reiki Ryoho. Reiki is just a Japanese noun often used as a nickname for styles honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho <what is Reiki>  

You can hear or read about something, but to know requires that you experience; one of the reasons learning any style that honors Usui Reiki Ryoho is done in-person.  

In each level of Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai you receive the in-person class hours you deserve from me, Shihan Roberta R. Barnes.  I take the time to guide students through the Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations included in each level. While in the last class you receive a certificate of completion, I give each student a detailed copyright manual for that level, based on my Shihan’s manuals and the notes I took in their classes.  While no style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho can be learned from a manual, they important to have for review of exercises and meditations. 

Each of the first three levels is broken into three 4-hour classes. For students traveling from another State class times may vary, but I do not cut back on the important of hours of in-person instruction.  <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

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 I teach private classes as needed.

Note that the levels 2, 3 & 4 differ in names between Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai.  The difference comes from the lineages.  <What are Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai>


The First level focuses 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 on and for how long to hold them in that place.  Exercises help your awareness to expand and uncover the true universal you.  

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden classes Saturdays October 8, 15, & 22; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM 

Komyo Reiki Kai Shoden classes Wednesdays October 5, 12, & 19; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM 

In the third level Japanese exercises, including the last of the 3 most important Japanese techniques, guide you to allow Usui Reiki to flow more purely as your pathway opens wider and your spirituality & awareness expand.  Your vibrations become even higher, and you are guided to make a pure connection with the true you.   Shinpiden translates as teaching of the mysteries, and you can see more clearly that vibrations are the building block of energy as you can transcend all symbols.

Gendai Reiki-ho Shinpiden classes Saturdays November 5, 12, & 19; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM 

Komyo Reiki Kai Okuden classes Wednesdays November 2,9 & 16; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM 

The Second level takes you deeper after having completed Shoden as your pathway to universal energy widens. The purposes are to improve the quality of one’s ability to allow Usui Reiki to flow and learn how universal energy can transcend space and time. You are introduced to the three symbols Usui Sensei created in 1925.  The Japanese exercises help your awareness to expand.

Gendai Reiki-ho Shinpiden classes Saturdays December 3, 10, & 17; 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. Reiki light (translation) fills my healing studio   because of the piece of universal energy always flowing through me and my students.
