Monthly Healing Drumming Group   

This group has been created with the intent to sponsor a circle of healers who use Crystals in their personal development and the healing of others.  We offer this group on an appointment basis and invite all healers who want to incorporate crystal healing and drumming or rattles in their techniques to join us.  Please email us or call us before attending. 

Shamanic Healing with Crystals Workshops

These courses are open to anyone who wants to learn about crystals and the crystal journeying process.  Journeying techniques are explored, as are the Shamanic use of various large crystals.  The daytime classes are a single class running from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the evening classes are divided into two-hour segments and run from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. and are usually hosted at The Reiki Center of Greater Washington, 4631 Glasgow Drive, in Rockville, Maryland, unless specified below.  Prior registration is required.  All workshops include two crystals to take home with your registration.  We will do several journeys each day, assisted by the sound of the drum or rattle and the creation of a large crystal medicine wheel.

Cost for the six-hour workshops is $150, paid one month in advance or $180, thereafter. Twelve-hour advanced classes cost $250, if prepaying one month in advance, or $280 thereafter.  Click here to see our calendar of Shamanic Healing with Crystals workshops! .
