Crystal Therapy is the practice of harnessing the energetic properties of crystals for healing and spiritual growth. In other words, crystals generate powerful vibrations that can be used in therapy and personal development.

The premise of crystal therapy, or crystal healing, is that individual stones such as citrine, rose quartz, jade or amethyst, are able to communicate with the energy flow of the human body. These stones can help realign the energy channels that are interrupting the natural flow of the body and so the body can heal itself. 

Certain crystals are suited to helping relieve specific ailments, such as anxiety, depression and insomnia, or more physical ailments such as digestive issues.

The growth in popularity of natural healing in recent years has given rise to a strong interest in the benefits and virtues of these semi-precious stones. 

In this seminar, you will gain a great understanding of the many ways that crystals can be used in your daily life. You will learn how and why to respect these wise stones, how to listen to and communicate with them.

This seminar will give you new knowledge and a new approach to crystal energy, which is the energy of Mother Earth and the first plane of existence. You will be awakened in the natural forces of self-healing in order to grow and love.

As well, you will learn how all this is already inside you, as the stones can be a wonderful aid in order to eliminate blocks and tensions that prevent your free expression.

You will discover how to choose crystals, as well as the many different ways they can be purified and cleansed. You will be able to harness the powers of crystals for the benefit of yourself and others.


Karuna Reiki is a system that has evolved from the practice of traditional Usui Reiki Ryoho. One of the most powerful energy healing modalities currently available, it amplifies the practitioner’s ability to channel the universal source of life force energy. The Karuna system has a higher vibrational approach than Usui Reiki so it is recommended that someone should first master the Usui system before moving on to learning Karuna.

The Karuna method and course was developed by Reiki master William Rand in 1995, with the help of some of his students. Rand is one of the world’s foremost Reiki practitioners and teachers as well as the founder and president of The International Center for Reiki Training. The word itself, ‘Karuna’, derives from Sanskrit, the ancient language of India, and can be translated as ‘compassionate action’, or an action taken to alleviate the suffering of others without expecting anything in return. It is a quality of unconditional love.

Similarly, another core facet of Karuna is forgiveness; both of yourself and others. To this end, the system includes the practice of forgiveness meditations. This Karuna Reiki system consists of many meditations with the ascended masters, angels, and archangels.

As far as how this system differs from Usui Reiki, Karuna uses a different series of sacred symbols but in addition it makes use of intoning and chanting with the voice to strengthen and amplify energy during Karuna therapy. The human singing voice reproduces the creative and healing power of cosmic energy. For example, the chanting of Om reproduces the primordial sound of the universe. This sacred syllable created the universe and chanting it brings peace and spiritual well-being.

According to the Shambhala Dictionary of Buddhism and Zen, the name of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddhist deity of compassion, also known as Mahakaruna (which means ‘great compassion’), can also mean ‘sound that illuminates the world’. The healing power of singing, chanting and the intoning is well known from ancient times. Priests and shamans who performed the prayers of healing with singing bear witness to this. No musical instrument can transmit the resonance of the human voice.


From the world of transformational healing, we have a tool called the Metamorphic Technique, or metamorphic touch.

In some ways it can be likened to lymphatic drainage massage in that it involves light stroking on parts of the body but this is where the similarity ends. Instead of the lymphatic pathways, with metamorphic touch, the practitioner uses a light, non-invasive touch, or light stroking, on certain points on the feet, hands and head. These points are the spinal, conception and birth reflex points of reflexology.

As the word ‘metamorphic’ suggests, the technique aims at healing patterns that were established during the conception, gestation, birth and early attachment stages of a person’s life. The time when, like the caterpillar metamorphosising into a butterfly, a person is taking form and shape in its mother’s womb. The premise being that our conception, gestation, birth and attachment to our mothers, forms the bedrock of who we are and as such these experiences have a dramatic and profound effect and influence on our character, our choices, our self-worth, belief system and more.

If left unaddressed, these experiences can echo through our entire lives, for example, a person born via caesarian section may feel like they’re always forced to do things before they’re ready, this can build up confusion and resentment but the person may never get to an understanding of why they go through life feeling resentful.

If these deep patterns are creating challenges in life, the metamorphic technique can clear the blocks to facilitate a deep healing.

There is another crucial aspect to this technique though. As well as lightly stroking the relevant reflexology points on the body, the practitioner must also hold a space for the person that is free from any attachment to the outcome or any particular direction or intention.

The founder of the Metamorphic Technique, Gaston Saint-Pierre, defined it as being a practice of detachment.  The practitioner does not look to address specific symptoms or problems, nor do they impose their will or seek to direct the recipient’s life in any way. 

The touch allows the intelligence of a person’s own innate life-force to flow in the most appropriate direction for them. There is a confidence that the healing will unfold in the way that’s most appropriate for the client.

By definition then, the Metamorphic Technique is not a therapy or a treatment, as it does not address specific problems. 

There is no need for practitioners to know about your personal or medical history. It is a gentle non-invasive and completely safe technique and can be used in conjunction with a Reiki treatment or other energy healing techniques.

Whereas people may seek medicine or therapy because they want to be healed of something, they come to the Metamorphic Technique because they want to transform their patterns. It is an empowering tool for enabling people to ‘get out of their own way’, let go of past limitations and move forward in their lives.
In some cases, changes are immediately noticeable, while in others they are more subtle. These changes can range from significant improvements in physical, mental or emotional health to general feelings of having more energy and confidence, releasing old habits or gradually letting go of past hurts. 

People report significant changes in the way they see life and how they feel about themselves; in many cases they experience a growing sense of purpose and inner strength and may find themselves changing their job, moving house, leaving a relationship or finding a new one as their life ‘gets on track’. Some people have described it like ‘coming home to themselves’
