Grand Shamanic Healing Ceremony Pictures!

The ceremony this past Sunday was fantastic! So many of students were on point, facing their fears and confidence issues, and the wide range of healers led to fully-realized and powerful lessons for the clients!

Here are a few of the wonderful images from that amazing moment in time...

This is an image of the giant Crystal Grid created in the center of the Healing Space. There was a Nuummite-Void vortex in the center, to help pull off and transmute negative intrusions. Flanking this Void Vortex were two Coyotes, with flaming stones of Healing Fire near their butts, and swords of Stibnite on their noses!

A few close-ups of Himalayan Salt and Arfvedsonite, as well as Blackthorn wands.

A few goddesses were "accidentally" packed, ha ha! Ishtar and Artemis, respectively.

Many shamans wear sacred necklaces to help honor their Helping Spirits.

Grand Healing Ceremony scheduled for Nov 15th!

There are many ways to invite healing into your life: perhaps focusing on a return of energy after a stressful start to the school year, a removal of blockages, a desire to set new goals for yourself, or even a "clean energetic slate" in which to meet the challenges of the upcoming holiday season.

For those that are local to the DC Metro area (or don't mind a bit of a drive, as it's just an hour south of Baltimore), I encourage you to attend the next Grand Crystal Healing Ceremony, on Sunday November 15th, at the Blueberry Gardens.

The Grand Crystal Healing Ceremony is a public ceremony, open to all who register in advance*, and is an excellent way to receive healing from a number of shamanic healers** (all with different skills sets and Helping Spirits).

A giant grid is created in the center of the Octagon Healing Room, and each participant brings a blanket (or yoga mat or chair) to sit/lay on. The participants surround the grid in the center, sort of like spokes on…
