Mayan medicine men and women speak of the powerful healing that is available to us from the Stone World. The collective consciousness of the Stone People holds ancient knowledge and ancestral wisdom that can inform and guide us. In this seminar you will work with stones to connect and communicate with these beings, and discover the messages they have to share. You will also learn to work with stones as a method of healing - tracking and clearing toxic emotional debris. May 4, Sun, 9a.m.-6p.m. Instructor: Lauren Nalder, BSc. (8 CEUs)

Born of the stars, the stones of our planet are Spirit beings existing through millions of years of development. These blossoms of the earth hold the wisdom of the ages, emitting a powerful vibratory current of consciousness with which we can form a sacred relationship. You will meet your stones at the soul level and discover the unmistakable presence that accompanies each one, as well as the teachings and gifts they offer. These living beings have much information to share, far beyond what you may imagine. Harvest the healing benefits and experience the wonder as you learn to work alongside your brilliant gems.

  • Describe the healing benefits of working with stones
