Reiki CLASSES & meditation workshops

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

In each level of Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai you receive the in-person class hours youi deserve to be guided through Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations.  You are guided to feel vibrations and allow the piece of universal energy called Usui Rriki without using  symbols, hand positions or material objects.  

You can hear or read about something, but to know requires that you experience; one of the reasons learning Usui Reiki Ryoho is done in-person.
Hyakuten Sensei © international 2020 “Reiju (empowerment, attunement) with touch-a visual symbol of an unseen transmission of not just 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 traveling from another States I arrange class times differently, but do not cut back on the total in-person instruction hours that each person deserves.  <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


“So happy I found Roberta. at home here in Maine  She has been an awesome Shihan who has studied under the best and speaks with a wealth of knowledge and experience of her own. Very rewarding and I’m having a lot of un”. –Joshua 


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. 

A $50 deposit, nonrefundable, is required when registering for each level in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai. The remainder of the fee is paid in the first class by check or cash; or if the fee can be prepaid in full.  

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.

Note that the levels 2, 3 & 4 are identified by different names in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai.  The difference is  in 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 to me.


Third level was once referred to as the secret level; a person had to feel oneness to be accepted into this level. You are guided deeply into spiritual growth allowing your wave of consciousness to become even higher as you practice the advanced Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations. You are guided to resonate fully with universal energy, allowing you transcend symbols and other training wheels, and connect fully to your true self. Completion of this level allows you to go on to the teacher’s level.  Gendai Reiki-ho Shinpiden (translates as mysteries) classes Saturdays January 8, 15 & 22, 2022; 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM  

Komyo Reiki Kai Okuden classes Wednesdays January 12, 19 & 26, 2022; 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM 


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 and Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden classes are scheduled for  February 2022.


Note that in the winter months I leave enough time between levels so that classes can be rescheduled if necessary due to driving conditions.

First level classes focus on self-healing, self-cleansing and personal growth. When you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world.  

Classes in Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden and Komyo Reiki Kai are scheduled for March 2022

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.
