Healing with Crystals

  • 355 Warwick Turnpike Hewitt, NJ

Cost:  $50.00

In this workshop we will access the energies of the mineral kingdom to release our self-limiting belief systems, activate our chakras, cleanse our energy fields, cut harmful energetic cords; and journey to manifest our true desires.

Join Crystal Practitioner and Reiki Master, Betty Sue Hanson, in this 2 hour workshop where you lay surrounded by a customized crystal grid as she guides you through a visualization which will lead you into a deep, relaxed state. While you are in this relaxed state, Betty Sue will use energetic techniques and crystal resonance to facilitate your process of manifestation.

Betty Sue will practice “crystalline listening” prior to the class to hone in on what the collective energy of the group will be. Personalized stones will show up to work with you individually and a “class stone” will be brought for you to take home and work with its specific energy! This is a relaxing yet spiritually profound experience that leaves you feeling clearer, more energized, and much more at peace.

Please take some time before the class to write down what you‘d like to bring into your life(spiritually, emotionally, physically, mentally) – don’t put any restrictions on your wishes! Your list stays with you until we burn it to seal the process.

Karma Yoga Class (Passaic Optimist Club)

Join us for a KARMA YOGA CLASS. All proceeds will go to the Antionette Nicole Mobley Scholarship Fund, sponsored by the Optimist Club of Passaic, which will benefit a special education student in the Passaic district. 

Antionette passed away from a heat stroke on Monday July 25, 2016, just a month after her 14th birthday. Antionette was a happy, thoughtful, and crafty girl. She paid close attention to those she cared about and took the time to make them feel special. In fact, she walked in the heat on that day to buy a present for a friend, and then once she arrived at the house she didn't feel well and had a high fever. She was rushed to the emergency room where her fever increased, and she passed away. 

The Optimist Club of Passaic is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization that provides scholarship and job opportunities for the youth of Passaic. We at Country Flow Yoga have many friends in the Passaic commuinty and are delighted to support this cause. Join us for this special karma yoga class at Country Flow Yoga and a community get-together nearby after the event (that location is TBA). 

MINIMUM DONATION: $10.00
