Using Crystals is one of the most common and effective ways to balance the chakras.

In this workshop we will delve deeper into the practice of chakra balancing with crystals by discussing the many options to consider when developing combinations that will be more effective and appropriate for the many different situations that life presents.

Participants will learn how to choose the right stones, balance them (which is a key component to as successful crystal layout, and work on balancing each others' chakras.  We will also look at the 13 chakra system, how to cleanse and care for the crystals, and ways to determine if and how a chakra system needs balancing.

Activating a grid is a special and specific process.  Done correctly, you can increase the size of its energy-field from a few feet to 35 feet or more.  In this workshop we will use dowsing rods to demonstrate this.   These are just a few of the many topics we will cover in this hands-on educational healing experience.

Psychic Development & Mediumship (Intensive)
Payment Options:

Instructor:  Jess Steinman

Early Bird Special (48 hours prior to class):  $290

This course is a two-day Certified Psychic Development and Mediumship Intensive.
Held on an entire weekend (Saturday and Sunday) from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM. 

Have you ever experienced a time where you got a hunch about something, only to shake it off, ignore it, or rationalize it . . . and later find yourself wishing you'd listened to your original “gut feeling”?  Your heart – your intuition! – is the compass you have been given to help guide you through life.  It will never steer you wrong!  But sometimes, it is hard to hear, see, feel, or understand where your heart is guiding you.

Or, perhaps you trust your intuition, but would like to learn how to communicate with your loved ones on the Other Side?  It is their "job" on the Other Side to communicate with us, to let us know that they are still connected through the bond of love; and it is OUR job to listen and acknowledge the signs.

During this two-day intensive workshop, Jess will guide you through the building-blocks of using your intuition, and through fun exercises, allow you to play and experience your intuition working first-hand.  Then, you will build upon that knowledge, to learn the basics of how to connect with deceased loved ones, understand their messages of love and pass those messages on to others. 

The weekend's topics will include:

  • The Chakras: What are they, and how do they work?
  • The “Clairs” of intuition, and how they help us receive intuitive messages
  • Meditation and how it enhances our connection with Spirit
  • Tools to help us make connections with the Other Side (cards, crystals, etc.)
  • Psychometry
  • What IS mediumship? How does mediumship differ from other types of psychic work? Are there different kinds of mediumship?
  • Building your mediumship “vocabulary”
  • Ethics and responsibility of mediumship
  • Protection and staying grounded
  • A mini-demonstration of “Stage Mediumship”
  • LOTS of experiential practice!!!

For the weekend's activities, please bring:

  • A small item belonging to you that can be exchanged with another classmate. (Ideally jewelry, keys, etc. – nothing of expensive value, please)
  • Two photographs in separate, plain, sealed envelopes... One of a loved one who is now in Spirit, and the other can be anything you desire
  • A notepad or journal and pens or markers
  • Lunch and snacks (there will be a lunch break and a few snack breaks both days), and plenty of water

Also note:  Because we will be playing with energy all weekend, temperatures in the room may fluctuate often.  You are encouraged to dress in layers!

Ever since I was 21 I was searching for my purpose and my happiness. I did everything I could to figure this out and achieve the peace I desired. I studied self help, meditation, went to an ashram and saw a Guru, practiced the Law Of Attraction, tried visualization to manifest, worked with angels, tried reiki, did yoga and even became a Certified Yoga teacher and even saw a therapist and was medicated to help ease the feelings of being sad, confused and lost. While all these modalities are great, and did afford me moments of peace and happiness, still something was never quite right. And then Dharma School called to me and truly my universe clicked in to place. Dharma school helped me shed that which no longer served me and helped me reconnect to my soul and my purpose. I've realized my calling is to do this amazing healing work. To help others find their whole awesome self again and shed that which no longer serves them. Being on this path is an amazing gift and I am honored to be a shaman and have the opportunity to be of service to others.
