Reiki CLASSES & meditation workshops

In Gendai Reiki-ho classes and Komyo Reiki Kai classes you are shown how to weave the essence of Usui Reiki Ryoho as originally practiced in Japan in the 1920s into daily life at all times and in all places, without complications.  You are shown how to go beyond Reiki symbols and designated hand positions. 

The size of classes is limited. At this time most commonly classes are private and semi-private even though my healing studio is large, I wear a mask and there is hand sanitizer at the door.

The multiple empowerments (attunements) you receive in each level are just the beginning of what you have the opportunity to learn and experience through Japanese exercises, techniques, and meditations.  Each level require at least 12 hours; breaking this down into three 4-hour classes gives you time to assimilate everything new to you.  I work with students traveling from other States and break down the classes differently. 


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.> .


 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

All levels beyond Shoden (the first level) require a certificate for the prior level(s). In each level my students receive a detailed manual that is a combination my Japanese Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in their classes, plus a certificate for that level. 

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

When you would like to complete a level in a month on days different than scheduled below simply contact me, so we can work out a time.


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.  

Gendai Reiki-ho Okuden  Saturdays February 20, 27 & March 6 ; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM

Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden Wednesdays February 17, 24 & March 3; 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM


Shoden(level one) translates as first teachings, but it is actually the base (hon) from which you can build a life of health and happiness.  The focus is on self-healing.  When you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world.  Even though the focus is on self-healing/self-growth you can allow Usui Reiki to flow to others following the first of the multiple empowerments offered in this level. This is $195.00 investment in yourself that you will not regret.

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden Saturdays March 20 (the spring equinox), 27 & April 3 :9:30 – 1:30 PM

Komyo Reiki Kai Shoden Wednesdays March 17, 24 & 31: 9:30 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. This part of the Usui Reiki Ryoho journey is where you transcend all symbols You live the Usui Gokai more fully and begin to create your life more spiritually active. Note that it is the fourth level that allows you to teach.  

Both Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai Okuden will be offer in April 


For full descriptions of each level and fees go to the learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki Kai page or click here 

For students traveling from other States contact me and we can arrange the 12 hours in-class 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 enough time to practice all exercises and techniques in all three levels to weave Usui Reiki into all areas of his or her life and transcend training wheels.

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.
