Your Invitation to Casa de Joao de Deus/John of God:
"Josie Ravenwing invites you to participate in a remarkable journey to experience the work of Brazil's miracle man healer John of God (Joao de Deus). A gifted medium of healing energies since his adolescence over 60 years ago, John has touched the lives of millions with healing power. People from all over Brazil and increasingly from around the world have been healed of psychological, spiritual and physical maladies, the latter including most forms of cancer, AIDS, hepatitis, asthma, blindness, paralysis and more. Although John does not guarantee any cures, saying that it is God who heals, not him, many have found relief and healing at John's center, the Casa de Dom Inacio. Some people also go to the Casa primarily for spiritual work, as it is such a powerful environment for spiritual development, and some go to improve their own effectiveness as healers. "

Testimonial from a listener: Josie’s cd, Healing Journey to the Crystal Cave, is by far the most powerful guided meditation I have ever experienced. I have listened to many meditations over the past 35 years, and Josie’s is light years ahead of any I have heard. Her voice is very healing, and she has paced the meditation perfectly to allow me to be transported to another time and place.

ABOUT YOUR TEACHER:
Abigail officially came out of the "Crystal Closet" and began hosting classes and workshops at her practice, Lotus Healing Center in 2014. Abigail's teaching and experiences with Healing Crystals and Stones vary from her early childhood fascination with collecting pretty rocks to a now 9 years of extensive study/research/practice/education experience. Abigail's routine use of crystals and stones can be found in her healing methods as a massage therapist, retail therapy stone and crystal collection at Lotus, various custom courses, community rituals, and crystal consultations, as well as, her ongoing growing passion for connecting stones with people as healing allies for all areas of ones professional and personal life. Abigail believes Crystals and Stones when used with childlike curiosity, mindful intention, and a playful spirit, provide Us with a "Grounded Balance" (so many of us seek) by connecting our natural and primal need for our body, mind, and spirit to feel the direct tangible tie to Mother Earth. Since her study in Brazil in November 2017 using blessed Quartz Crystals from John of God, Abigail's knowledge of crystal's healing capacities has once again expanded. Abigail's Crystal Clarity Class offers a practical use of this new depth of Brazillian Clear Quartz crystal knowledge in a tangible classroom experience.
