Rev. Linda Carol Irvine, M.Ed., Teacher
Reiki changed my life! Linda began her Reiki studies in 1997 and completed her Master Training in the Usui Method in 2001. Reiki was a natural channel leading her to become a minister through the Universal Brotherhood Movement. She completed the Karuna Reiki Master Level in 2002 and in 2015 took Usui/Holy Fire through the Master Level. In 2016, she completed the Mentor program through Maryland Center for Reiki Training and is now a Master Reiki Teacher. In October 2016, she received her certification in Karuna Holy Fire ll from William Lee Rand, founder of International Center for Reiki Training; ICRT.

Every level becomes more amazing! Since the first class, she has joyfully used Reiki in the workplaces, for family and friends, and provided private sessions as well. Teaching brings much satisfaction in empowering others and spreading the healing. She believes in Reiki every day, everywhere, everyone. It connects her soul with the Universe, with the day, with the moment, with others, and with her life purpose. It is a powerful yet gentle way to spread love and peace.
Miyako Zeng, Teacher
Miyako has been practicing Reiki since 2014 and became a Master Teacher 2016 after completing the Mentor Program through MdCRT. In May 2017, she received her certification as a Medical Reiki™ Master with the Gold Standards & Practices of Raven Keyes Medical Reiki International and now offers Reiki in Pre Op & Post Op. As a curious and adventurous girl in her twenties, Miyako started to take private meditation lessons in her hometown of Tokyo, Japan. Soon she was introduced to Yoga, QiGong, Tai Chi, Alexander technique, therapeutic massage, and healing touch. When she looks back, she realized she knew the power of touch since she was a child and has been using it for self-healing through all her life. Now she can call it Reiki. She loves teaching ( she teaches piano and yoga). She recognized the teaching as her life mission, so she completed her certification as a Reiki Master Teacher through Maryland Center for Reiki Training and became a new addition to the MDCRT teaching staff.
