For Reiki-Trained Healers: Strengthening Your Energetic Skills
If you’ve received your first, second, or third Reiki attunement(s) but could use more in-depth training to help you really use your skills, this workshop is for you. Isabella and Sabrina Mari will train you to sense, direct, and move energy through this hands-on, three hour workshop. We will use a series of active exercises to guide you as you identify energy patterns and find blocks and stuck points in yourself and others. You’ll be working with colleagues and partners to practice what you learn immediately, with instant feedback about what you are doing and how it is working. This feedback will allow you to get more comfortable in your healing skills and begin to develop your own personal helping style. You’ll learn structured approaches to supplement your original Reiki training and make it easier for you to act as the healer you are meant to be.
The class will be limited to six people so you can receive all the individual attention you need. You must be Reiki trained (1st, 2nd, or 3rd) to participate. Participants will also have the option to attend two additional 90-minute classes (see below) to explore additional diagnostic and healing skills, but these are optional. However, you must attend the first workshop to have access to the second and third. 3 Hours
Using the Pendulum in Reiki Healing - Diagnosing Problems and Blocks
This class will teach you how to use the pendulum during your Reiki sessions. You’ll learn to diagnose problems quickly while identifying open, well-functioning chakras. We’ll also share several techniques for clearing and balancing chakras, and you’ll begin practicing what you learn immediately. This class will help you begin to trust your intuition as you receive information during a healing session, and assist you to address any questions you may have about the blocks you encounter as you work. We’ll teach you how the pendulum can become a valuable added tool in your practice, and how it can help you heal your clients. 1.5 Hours
Putting It All Together: Counseling,
Coaching, and Learning to Trust Your Intuition
In Isabella’s experience of discovering and working with intuitive clients during her Reiki sessions, she finds that most of them have limited their extra-sensory functioning. Many doubt their gifts because of limiting belief systems and social conditioning. This class will help intuitives and empaths become more confident with their gifts. During this hour and a half, Isabella will help you connect with your greater intuitive self and healer. Learn to call in your spirit team, sense their presence, and trust the information coming through you. Learn to identify different kinds of energy as it moves through, and most importantly, find out how to ground and protect yourself. The more you let go of self doubt and limiting beliefs, the more your gifts will grow. Isabella will help you begin to trust and believe in yourself and connect with your helpers ( your spirit team), so your stronger gifts will develop and you will become the Gifted Healer you were meant to be. 1.5 Hours
Working with Crystals: Attuning to the Magic of the Mineral Kingdom
This class will teach you to begin working with crystals and offer you the opportunity to meet and become familiar with many of them. You’ll get to explore a good collection of crystals and minerals first hand, gaining knowledge about what they do. By paying attention to which ones call out to you and learning about their specific properties, you’ll discover what abilities and qualities you need to strengthen in yourself. You’ll also find out how to care for your crystals, learn different approaches to clearing and programming them, and most of all, you’ll discover how to forge close energetic relationships with them. We’ll talk about some of the most common ways of working with crystal allies and add in a few you may not have heard of. Together, we’ll set up a large crystal grid designed to deepen your intimate relationships and help you open to universal love. When we’re done, you’ll take home a crystal to work with. Come with a notebook, a pen, and plenty of questions. 3 Hours
Drawing the Love You Want
The time‘between,' when one relationship has ended and another has yet to be born, can be a powerful time for creating lasting happiness. This workshop weaves together Eastern and Western spiritual and magical practices to show you how to reshape your romantic future. You’ll learn feng shui and Pagan techniques for telling the Universe who and what you want, drawing good love, and opening up to true happiness. Using interactive exercises, guided reflection, and even play, you’ll get to explore where you've been and clear a path towards where you really want to go. You’ll also be asked to partner with others for several exercises, so come willing to meet new people and work with them. Plan to leave with at least one daily practice designed to help you find and accept healthy love. Bring a notebook, a pen, and the willingness to take a few risks! 3 Hours
Tarot and Intimacy: Looking for Important Patterns in Your Cards
[No Tarot knowledge is necessary---come to be read, not to read.]
Tarot can be a powerful tool to identify barriers to intimacy, future relationship problems and unrealized sources of joy. Workshop participants will receive concise readings about their current and future relationships as part of this workshop. Together, we’ll explore the patterns that appear in your cards and point out relationship strengths and problems. We’ll also talk about specific ways in which Tarot can be used by non-readers to gain relationship insights and identify the best path forward. Bring your Android or iPhone (we’ll use the camera function), a notebook, and a pen. No previous knowledge of Tarot is needed for this workshop, but experienced readers are welcome. If you do read, feel free to bring your favorite deck with you. Limited to 11 people. 3 Hours
Beginner/Intermediate Tarot I
Tarot can be a powerful tool for identifying destructive behavioral patterns and uncovering persistent, unaddressed issues that sabotage relationships. It can also point a way out of these problems for people who are willing and ready to try something new. This workshop targets beginners and moderately experienced Tarot readers with up to 5 years of occasional reading experience. We’ll begin working our way through the Minor Arcana, starting with the suits of cups and swords. In three hours, we’ll provide an overview of the most commonly encountered meanings of these cards, along with some variations. These two suits, more than any of the others, tend to focus on the day-to-day problems experienced by young and middle-aged people struggling to establish happy romantic relationships. The goal of this workshop is to expand beginner or intermediate knowledge of the Minor Arcana, which is often overlooked in favor of the Major Arcana. While the Minor Arcana may seem less glamorous, it is important for the Tarot reader who wants to coach clients and help them identify and select better choices. Intermediate Tarot I may be taken without taking Intermediate Tarot II.
3 Hours or Two 1.5 Hour Classes
Beginner/Intermediate Tarot II
This workshop targets beginners and moderately experienced Tarot readers with up to 4 years of experience. We’ll work our way through the Minor Arcana suits of wands and pentacles (also sometimes known as coins or discs). In three hours, we’ll provide an overview of the most common meanings of these cards in addition to some variations. By examining these two suits, we’ll complete the survey of the Minor Arcana begun in Intermediate Tarot I. The goal of this workshop is to expand beginner or intermediate knowledge of the Minor Arcana, which is often overlooked in favor of the Major Arcana. While the Minor Arcana may seem less glamorous, it is very important for the Tarot reader who wants to coach clients and help them identify and select better choices. Intermediate Tarot II may be taken without taking Intermediate Tarot I.
3 Hours or Two 1.5 Hour Classes
Journey Through the Major Arcana
Tarot can be a powerful tool for identifying destructive behavioral patterns and uncovering persistent, unaddressed issues. It can also point a way out of these problems for people who are ready and willing to listen to good advice and try something new. This workshop targets beginners and moderately experienced Tarot readers with up to 4 years of occasional reading experience. We’ll begin working our way through the Major Arcana, exploring each card and explaining what it tells us about the past and future experiences of the person who receives it. The Major Arcana focuses on the ongoing struggle that each person faces during his or her lifetime: it lays out the specific lessons that a person must learn, the challenges they will meet and the grace that can help them through their experiences. Most importantly, this workshop is an opportunity to learn how to use Tarot as a guide for personal growth. All-Day Workshop or Four 2 Hour Classes
At Your Personal Crossroads
You’re at a crossroads and multiple paths lie in front of you. Look around. Where do you stand? Which paths appear? This workshop will use up to four different tools to help you answer these questions for yourself. First, we’ll help you identify exactly what your body and spirit are trying to tell you about where you are and why you’re here via a brief writing exercise. Then you’ll join together in a small, interactive group to gather more information about what you’re learning. Finally, you’ll be offered the opportunity to confirm or clarify what you think you know by using an oracle deck. Finally, you’ll be offered the opportunity for a very brief Tarot reading to explore possible ways to move forward. [Limited to 10 people.] 2 Hours
Now What? What to Do When Big Change is Coming
When Big Change is coming---the kind of change that shifts your career, your relationship(s) and maybe even your way of life---you need to make a plan. But where do you even begin? And how do you build a daily practice to help guide you and keep you on track? This workshop will help you evaluate your needs and jump-start the right plan to move you forward. Come ready to share descriptions of your mission and your life’s work with others. While this is a good follow up to At Your Personal Crossroads, you don’t have to have taken that class to come to this one. You are welcome to join us if you’re facing a big change. Bring a notebook, something to write with, and an open mind. 2 Hours
Create and Charge Your Own Magical Incense: Working the Herbal Path

We’ll cover basic principles for combining loose incense, choosing ingredients that invoke elemental and magical associations, and making successful substitutions. A selection of basic recipes will be provided and we’ll analyze them together, so you can learn to identify how and why the ingredient was selected and understand the magical purpose of each. During the second part of the workshop, we’ll raise energy and charge our creations after covering different techniques for doing so. Each person will create and take home a personal incense for a specific purpose. If supplies allow, participants may be able to take home more than one. All materials and tools will be provided.
