For the safety of our students, our community and ourselves, we are holding classes indefinitely on-line. Please sign up a minimum of a week in advance so that we have time to mail your manuals and materials to you. Once you register and make payment, instructions will be sent with the preparations for your on-line class. We are offering in-person classes at Expanding Heart Center. The classes  will be limited to 4 people so we can keep a safe distance apart in the teaching studio. Stay safe. Stay well.

Please visit our ‘Sessions’ page to book a ‘Long Distance’ Reiki Session. This is beautifully effective and much needed in this uncertain time.

Schedule

We have taught all levels of Reiki online and are very pleased with the results. Everyone is engaged and we see that energy has no boundaries. We are offering future classes online indefinitely. You can join with confidence.  Please register a week to 8 days in advance of the class so I have time to mail manuals and handouts.  We are now offering in-person classes limited to 4 or 5  students per class instead of our usual 8 to 10.  Our teaching studio is large and will easily allow 8 feet between students. As of July 31 it is required that masks be worn, at all times, in public places. Please bring a comfortable mask for the class. There is no ‘hands on’ practice. But we will learn all hand placements and have practice sessions at a distance. Thank you for choosing MdCRT to begin your Reiki journey.

I have and will continue to recommend MDCRT to anyone who is interested in Reiki! I’ve gone through all three levels of training with Kandi and her staff and it has been life changing. They are warm, caring, and the classes are comprehensive, you will learn so much about Reiki and yourself!

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!!

After searching for Reiki classes in the DC area, I chose MDCRT because of the plentiful course dates, clear communications about the topics covered, and the easy registration process. I am so glad I did! I love this center. The classes were exceptional and I highly recommend them to anyone interested in learning about Reiki.

I took Reiki Master training here. It was a transformative weekend!✨ Kandi's warm and caring energy really shines through in the classes and in the atmosphere she creates among the students.? I also appreciated the different guest teachers Kandi brought in for training. It was a truly valuable experience, and weeks later I am still seeing benefits in my Life.✨

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. Learning all three levels of Reiki under Kandi has been a beautiful and profound experience of growth and understanding. I highly recommend her training programs and healing services to anyone in need of healing and/or wishing to step into being of service to others.

Thanks Kandi and Terry, the class instructions and knowledge shared were amazing. My Reiki II Certification class experience on my birthday was everything. I’m so looking forward too becoming a Master instructor because of it! Peace
