Crystal Awareness

This weekend provides an excellent practical grounding in the
many ways of interacting with crystals, minerals and gemstones for the
benefit of your self, others and the environment. You will learn
practical skills, techniques and underlying principles, which will
allow you to continue your own journey of exploration and learning long
after this weekend is over.

worked with crystals having only admired their beauty before. I

understand, fun and informative. The course gave me confidence to use
the crystals in everyday life and receive even more enjoyment from
them. I would recommend this course for anyone who has any interest in
crystals and I look forward to attending the next Crystal Healing
