About The Event
Stones carry wisdom. Some are over three billion years old, some less than a million. They are excellent ambassadors of our Speaking Land, if we open our hearts and listen to them.
In this workshop led by Cassandra Hamilton, you’ll learn how to choose a rock willing to act as your oracle. You’ll learn how to read the six sides of a stone to gain insight to a personal situation or to get guidance for 2024. You’ll experience how to gain soulful and uniquely personal messages from rocks while having opportunity to relax in nature and bond in community. You’ll be asked to honor rocks that assist in this gathering and return them with blessings and gratitude to their homes. You’ll leave with a technique you can use for the rest of your life.
Bring: a pen and notebook (to record messages and insights). PLUS, either a fat candle (that won’t be lit) or can of soup that can be donated to a food bank—these will be used to mark the location of the stone that consults with you.
Cassandra prayed and dreamed with a medicine wheel stone for a year, as part of a medicine wheel planetary healing ceremony in 1997 with Hyemeyohsts Storm, author of Seven Arrows and ten other books, who named her Thunder Being (One Who Reminds People Why They Are Here). In 1998, Albert “Little Turtle” Dugas gifted her his medicine bundle before he passed with instructions she do as she was taught but in her own way. In 2003, Cassandra healed her rare eye disease using a macrobiotic diet given to her by Michio Kushi and with the assistance of Lewis Mehl Madrona, a shamanic journey witnessed by dozen workshop attendees. She’s learned from cores shamans (including Michael Harner, Sandra Ingerman and Keshav Howe) and well as shamans who practice imbedded in their culture and visit the United States (such as Tzenwaxolokwauhtli, Carrier of the Mexihka Black Smokey Mirror Tradition). She’s a Level 3 Dream Teacher in Robert Moss’s School for Active Dreaming and is currently studying Egyptian Goddesses in Normandi Ellis’s Priestesses Program. Her master’s degree is in the Special Field Study of Shamanism and the Arts from Wesleyan University.
