Advanced Shamanic Workshop
Deepening the Awareness of Crystals
A Journey into Stone Energy & Healing
Focus of the Workshop
Rocks and crystals have been treasured for their beauty and healing
energies since the dawn of time.
For example, spiritual and healing ceremonies incorporating rocks,
often in the form of gemstones,
and crystals were performed by Mayan, Native American Indians, Aztec,
Inca, African, Tibetan, and
Celtic Cultures. In more recent times, the Bible refers to quartz crystals
more than 200 times as well
as a multitude of other rocks in the form of gemstones and crystals.
In similar ways, rocks and crystals can assist in our spiritual journeys.
For example, they bring forth
spirit energies that provide interesting applications in the ordinary
and non-ordinary realities. For
some, the rock and crystal spirit energies can enhance shamanic work
by adding new experiential
dimensions to the ecstatic journey. For others, the rock and crystal
spirit energies provide a new set of
tools to be used in healing practices, such as establishing protective
energy cocoons. At a minimum,
as we learn to awaken the spirit energies of the rocks and crystals,
parts of ourselves will begin to
awaken as well.
What to Expect
This workshop is designed to deepen the shamanic relationship with
rocks and crystals. A large
altar/vortex of energy will be created in the center of the working
space. The purpose of this altar is to
expand the energy field and therefore the sensitivity and receptivity
to healing energies. Typically, the
people will journey ten to twelve times over the course of the workshop.
It is quite common for all
participants to experience some form of major insight and/or healing.
Generally, this workshop
includes a session on Friday or Saturday evening.
As an advanced workshop, the focus is to deepen the experiential relationship
with rocks and crystals.
The participants will continue to personal experience the energies
of the stones and then apply this
knowledge to shamanic practices. Because the rocks and crystals and
techniques change for each
workshop, this workshop can be repeated several times with minimal
Who Should Come
The workshop is designed for people from all walks of life. It is focused
towards expanding the skills
for spiritual explorers, practicing healers, and curious people. Hence,
crystal healers, hands-on
healers, shamanic practitioners, body-workers, and the delightfully
inquisitive can expand their skills
through the use of crystal energies.
What to Bring
Please bring any rocks or crystals that want to come along. A journal
notebook is encouraged as well
as any comforts for sitting on the floor, such as blankets, pillows,
etc. Bring something for a
community potluck lunch.
