Ceremony is introduced as a method of connection to Mother Earth in the traditions of the ancestors who first developed this style of wellness. Ceremony is free…it is NEVER for sale. The course fees pay for your education and the presentation costs for the event.
Participation in the ceremonial activities offered during the course enlighten the gathering on how to ‘Walk the Stone People’ in honor. A variety of traditions come to life, including ‘Smudge’, ‘Prayer Tie Offerings’, ‘Calling the Directions’ and, of course, ‘Inyan Pejuta’ (Stone Medicine).
Life as a ‘Stone Walker’ is described in terms of the legend of the ‘Hollow Bone’. Accepting the ‘Stone Tribe’ as the historians of Mother Earth, with living wisdom for all humanity, enhances the practitioner’s ability to properly serve their fellow ‘Two Legged’ with an unprecedented wellness method.
In the afternoon of the first day you will watch an amazing demonstration of a typical Stone Medicine session. This one hour to 90 minute treatment is perfect in the spa or clinical setting. Each session can be altered to serve a unique treatment plan to meet your clients’ specific needs.
