This is a busy time of year in my studio . . . from jewelry creation to program creation, there is a lot of creative energy is flowing.

I just love this point of the creative process. It’s lively and exciting!

This is how I typically experience the fall season. It is the time when the projects that I have been working on through other times of the year all come together and are ready to be shared.

We each have a unique creative cycle. When we discover it and embrace it, we find a life rhythm that is wildly empowering.

Attuning to natural life rhythms is one of the unique ways shamans look at working with crystals and stones.

Earlier this week I received a question about one of my upcoming programs: Crystal Wisdom : 101. It was a great question regarding how much of a shamanic twist this program will include.

It’s funny because as I sat to answer the question I briefly looked at the program outline and thought ‘well, I think it’s really just the final class’. Then I looked a little deeper and realized that the entire program will be taught through my shamanic lens, a perspective that has become such a natural part of my life that I often overlook the unique ways a shaman works with crystals and stones.

So I started asking myself: “How does a shaman work with crystals differently?” and “How did my crystal work shift as I began studying shamanism?”

These questions inspired today’s episode of Rooted Life Radio where I dive into the the sweet spot where crystal work and shamanism merges. Listen Now:


Wishing you a beautiful day!
Shine Brightly!
