 Bury the SoulStone Medicine Level 1: This two day 16 CE course will introduce you to this Traditional form of stone massage from Native American traditions.

This introduction to Native American Stone Massage techniques includes an introduction to the ceremonial traditions of the people from whom these offerings come. A variety of traditions come to life, including ‘Smudge’, ‘Prayer Tie Offerings’, ‘Calling the Directions’ and, of course, ‘Inyan Pejuta’ (Stone Medicine).

This class is a pre-requisite for continuing on to taking more advanced Stone Medicine classes.  This class serves as a solid introduction to Stone Massage, including information about safety, sanitation, and contraindication to alternating temperatures.

For the more advanced practitioner already working with stones, this class will teach you how to blend together ancient ceremonies and stones,  therapist and client into a session that flows like a graceful dance, offering physical and emotional healing for the client.

Class Dates: April 8th-9th, 2017/ August 26th-27th, 2017

RedAlterHealers Gathering:  Healing the Healer: This special gathering, intended for those in a healing profession, seeks to honor and acknowledge in a non-religious way the sacred nature of the work that we do.

This group seeks to promote good self care by giving us time to express and reflect upon our experiences as healers in a supportive, safe environment as well as promoting mutually beneficial trading partnerships between healers to help us get the healing work that we all need.
 
Finally, this group can help us help each other in promoting services, classes and other events through social media and other channels.
 
We will start the gathering with introductions and getting to know each other, as well as a check in to see what events/classes/specials you have coming up that you are hoping to promote.
 
We will continue by sitting together to enjoy a moment of sacred reflection, followed by time to chat about our joys and frustrations as healers while sharing a snack and a (non alcoholic) beverage.
 
Please bring something to share.
If you wish, you arrive early and purchase food or beverage downstairs in the coop downstairs for sharing.
 
Space is limited and RSVP is required (our space can only accommodate a limited number, so we are not able to accommodate walk ins)! Please RSVP by e-mail to Shanna@creaturecomfortsbodywork.com

This treatment is suitable for massage therapists as well as other healers who are interested in learning to work with stones for healing. It is not specifically a massage treatment.

The Grandmother Cedar stroke is great for those who are going through a difficult time in their lives and need additional support. It helps to open up the doorway for support from the client’s ancestors to support them. Cedar can be used to help those who need additional “grounding”.

This easy to learn treatment uses a variety of pretty, colorful gemstones and crystals.  More information about the Wase workshop can be found by clicking here.

Healing Hands – Native American ‘Energy’ Work: Energy work is common to many healing practices throughout the world. This version of energy work uses different symbols than Reiki and can be a powerful addition to your healing tool belt.

During this workshop, you will participate in ceremonies that will help you to bring your hands in harmony with Creator’s energy so that you will be able to incorporate this easy to learn healing method to your other healing work or to offer it as its own wellness practice.

This workshop is open to professional healers as well as lay people. This easy to learn, hands on healing method can effectively be offered by laypeople who are not healers for friends and family.
