Holy Fire III Karuna is Advanced Healing Energy for Our Evolving World!

If you have been a Usui Reiki Master for at least 6 months and you know how to use and draw the Reiki II and Reiki Master symbols from memory then you qualify for the Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki training! All lineages honored from other Reiki schools and teachers.

This class is the next step after Reiki Master and is both a practitioner and a Master class. Those who take the class will be able to use the 8 Karuna symbols in their Reiki sessions AND teach all levels of Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki. It is complete with eight practitioner symbols, one master symbol, four ignitions and two meditations that are guided by the Holy Fire.

Holy Fire III Upgrade

Anyone who is a Reiki Master from any lineage is qualified for this class. In this class you will receive the Holy Fire III upgrade. This upgrade will allow you to give Placements which are Ignition-like experiences for Reiki I & II and ART instead of attunements. This makes teaching these levels of Reiki much easier. In addition, it makes teaching the ART/Master and this class easier too as you will not be demonstrating and practicing the attunements in class. The Placement system provides a more effective level of Reiki for the student and also empowers the symbols with more effective healing energy. The Usui energy is no longer part of the system, but has been replaced with Holy Fire energy. However, all four of the Usui symbols are still used. The meditations are POWERFUL!

This 3 day workshop will rock your world and could possibly change your life!

A brief description of the 1st 4 Holy Fire III/Karuna symbols are:

  • Prepares the client for deep healing and is useful with past life issues. It helps release karma and deeply seated issues on the cellular level.
  • Heals deeply and can be used to breakup the negative patterns we unconsciously use to insulate ourselves from the truth, thus shattering delusion and denial. It heals the shadow self.
  • Fills the person with love and restores balance.
  • Completes the treatment by bringing the client back into the body and grounding.

Remaining 4 Holy Fire IIl/Karuna symbols are:

  • This symbol helps you access wisdom through your higher self and anchor it into your physical body.
  • This symbol assists you to put your goals, visions and dreams into action!
  • This symbol relates to your personal Divine Power and can assist you to keep your energy clear from thought forms projected by others, and also from your own fears.
  • Sanskrit for peace. Shanti can assist you in trusting that all situations in life can offer positive experiences through growth and therefore assist you in finding peace in the lessons learned from your challenges.

MDCRT is the ideal place to learn Reiki. Kandi Austin is such a wonderful, gentle teacher and person. She has become my mentor and I highly recommend MDCRT if you are looking for a training center to provide you with a clear understanding of Reiki in a calm and loving environment.

MDCRT and Kandi Austin have had a profound impact on my life. I attended both Reiki classes level I and II with the intent of having my own Reiki practice. I had no idea how life changing Reiki would be. It has brought about healing I never knew I needed. Kandi has been an integral part of my journey, offering her skills as a mentor and a friend. My husband has also taken the level I course and has greatly enjoyed all that has come from it. I cannot recommend MDCRT highly enough.

I was excited when the Maryland Center for Reiki Training (MdCRT) opened in 2015. As a Usui and Karuna Master Teacher, I kept up with the continuing evolvement and expansion of Reiki. Knowing the new level of Usui Holy Fire Reiki had been developed, I took the Usui Holy Fire Master Class at MdCRT. The teachers were prepared, competent and honoring of each student. When it was time to receive the new level of energy, I felt the sensation of the Holy Fire slowly permeate my body from head to toe with loving, gentle, empowering energy. I knew my healing abilities had been raised to a new level of effectiveness and, with daily use, would continue to grow. Currently I am a Usui and Karuna Holy Fire ll Master Practitioner and Teacher and CMRM Certified Medical Reiki Master. I occasionally teach Reiki classes for MdCRT having gone through their Mentor Program. What a journey! Classes for children have been added. Come see for yourself and learn how to bring healing to yourself, family, friends, and the planet!Rev. Linda C. Irvine

My wife and I took the Reiki Level 1 course experiencing and incredible amount of supportive information, practice, and transformation. The education, meditations, and hands-on-training built a strong foundation for self-healing, confidence in practice and building healing energy, and provided a pathway for growth and practice leading to the healing of self and others. I am very much looking forward to Reiki II! I highly recommend MDCRT!!

Life isn't worth living unless you embrace all possibilities of growth, development and healing. What a blessing it was to be led to the MdCRT. I was blessed to be a student for the Reiki I & II courses. The background history, meditations and hands on training not only allowed for me to build a solid foundation in Reiki, but gave me the confidence and additional push I needed to remove self-doubt and start my healing. Kandi was an exceptional teacher. She was patient and pleasant. I look forward to working with her in the future and studying with her for my Master's.In terms of accessibility, the days and times offered were good. I live in central and still chose to make the drive for two days. Trust me, it's worth it. Parking availability was easy.Finally, the students in my class were equally as much a blessing to me as Kandi (instructor). It was nice to receive feedback from my classmates and really grow from each others experiences.I highly recommend MdCRT!

Before deciding to attend Reiki training at MDCRT, I researched a variety of options. After meeting Kandi and entering the room where training was to take place, I knew I had made the right decision. Kandi is welcoming and thoughtful in her approach to teaching and MDCRT is a wonderful place to learn!

I learned so much during the Reiki Master Level III! The experience, the environment, our mentor/teacher really allowed us to learn I. A safe and sacred space. If I had of know. About this place, I would have taken Reiki I and II with Kandi! This is a beautiful space and plan to return for other classes too!

Kandi is the epitome of grace and compassion and her passion for Reiki is undeniable.

A truly wonderful and unforgettable experience. Kandi simply radiates the joy, inner peace, and knowledge you expect from a Reiki Master. I not only learned so much during the Reiki II Training, I felt a true bond was created that I can reach out for advice and guidance as I continue in my Reiki and Energy Healing journey. The book and learning material provided was simply outstanding. Highly Recommend the MDCRT for all your REIKI Training.
