About This Event

The Beginning / Intermediate Crystal Healing Course is a complete healing modality in itself which was downloaded and created by Katrina Raphaell in the early 80s and transmitted into her books, The Crystal Trilogy.

Crystal Healing works directly with the light, color, beauty and perfect geometric forms that the mineral kingdom provides to assist us in balancing all aspects of our being. It is an advanced healing art that has the capacity to influence the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.

This ancient art of laying on of stones, utilizes the power of crystals on the chakra points of the body along with therapeutic techniques taught in the courses to empower the client to journey into his/her internal landscape and receive direct guidance from his/her guides, higher self, Spirit.

If you are already a seasoned shamanic practitioner or energy healer, you will gain new knowledge to add to your toolkit, learn about the properties of crystals and the chakra system, therapeutic techniques, grounding with crystals, creating crystal grids and programming crystals, etc. For the complete beginner, besides all of the above, by the end of the beginning crystal healing course, you wll have the basic foundation of how to facilitate a crystal healing session from start to finish and lots of information for you to embark on your healing/ healer path.

The intermediate crystal healing certification course will go deeper into the study of the twelve chakra system, identifying Master Crystals, the predominant power stones and their properties, professional guidelines for crystal healers, more therapeutic techniques and review, information and stones for the causal chakra, stellar gateway, soul star and earth star. The intermediate course brings in higher frequencies as we learn the circulatory breathing exercise and learn to anchor in more light into our physical bodies to become a more coherent vessel to facilitate healings for others.

Crystal comes from the latin root word KRYSTALLOS, meaning frozen light. "Crystals are a key to unlock the transformative capacity within each one of us and to accelerate our conscious evolution" Rumi Da
