Stone People

1489 N Military Trl

$25.00

This workshop is an introduction to Native American "stone people" knowledge. Cherokee (more correctly: Ani'yunwi'ya) who I am in part descended from, were considered the preeminent experts on the stone nations. People were not even allowed to touch certain stones/crystals unless they had been trained in them or were under the direction of an accomplished mentor. Stone Nation Class starts @ 2:00pm $25 Presented by Grandfather Rick McBride. Most crystal and stone workshops try to sensitize participants to the energies of the stone nations. This approach often leads to frustration for those not yet ready to open up to them. Whether a person is able to pick up on the energy of a stone or not is really irrelevant. What is important is to understand that certain "effects" exist, and that we can learn about them. As in all natural healing work, the inner condition -- the emotional, psychological, mental, even physical state of the healer/handler, is critical to the work at hand. Unfortunately, many people have been led to believe all they need to know is what amounts to a list of stone qualities (alleged or real) and they are qualified to do healing, or other kinds of stone work. We start at the beginning by looking at Earth cycles; the necessary geologic basics of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic categories; hydrothermal creation of crystals; crystalline structures; proven effects of crystals on residual energy; electro-thermal response characteristics, and more. You will learn the basics of the formation processes, which influence the characteristics specific stones tend to carry. I then draw the correlation between the type of stone and Life situations; challenges, set-backs, opportunities and so forth. Once you determine this in your own life, you will more correctly know what type of stone to work with to produce the results you are looking for. You will physically see with your own eyes the effect you have on touching a common clear quartz crystal. And, therefore, the effect it has on you! The approach in this class is to help the student discover what is absolutely necessary to develop before any effective work can be done using these natural tools. And done safely. It helps to think of stones and crystals more as filters or shapers, guides or "influencers," than generators of some mysterious metaphysical energy. If you are serious about learning what indigenes of Turtle Island have known for literal thousands of years, if you are interested in learning what works, based on countless generations of stone healers that had a deep understanding of these tools long before the first Europeans landed on Turtle Island, then I encourage you to participate in this workshop. If you do, I also ask you leave any preconceived ideas at home. Rick McBride is mixedblood Ani'yunwi'ya (Cherokee) who has walked the Red Road for over 35 years.
