Crystal Healing and Chakra Health


May 22 & 23, 2021

10-4pm daily


Crystals are the Earths’ DNA. They have a structure which is transmitted into our bodies.


Crystals can absorb, conserve, focus and emit energy, especially on the electromagnetic wavebands.


Each has it’s own note, and mineral structure, and therefore it’s own internal structure. Mineral content changes the color, but the internal structures are the same.


Crystal healing is ancient and works both in the energy field and on a constitutional level of the body, therefore being deep and effective healing.


The beauty of Crystals and Sacred Stones affects healing and overall balance by imprinting delicate frequencies into the human energy field.


Learn a treatment to assist with Covid 19 relief of fatigue.  And play with tuning forks as a complement to the crystals.


We will spend the first day delighting in the beauty of crystals and discussing the properties of healing stones and the physical and spiritual functions of each of our Chakras. I will have stones and pendulums for everyone to use, but please bring your favorite healing stones to class

Love and Destiny Card Class   
July 24 & 25, 2021.   on Zoom

The Science of the Cards is a powerful tool for self-discovery and inner transformation. Most students use it initially to help forecast their future, understand their past and unravel the many facets of their human relationships. However, this system can be used most effectively as a guide to plan and execute many important aspects of our life. A person fully utilizing the information found in this system can walk forward in life with full confidence, knowing that he or she is in harmony with the universal energies and the cycles of his or her own life.



In this workshop, you will learn about your individual Birth Card and Planetary Ruling Card, your relationship to others, and your life’s plan in the Book of Destiny. Learn how the cards can help you more clearly define your life’s purpose and how they provide you with a blueprint for continual success.



Bring your life plans and dreams to this class and lets see if we can get you on track to your highest potential.

Instructor Caryn Boyd Diel has been a student of this system of divination and card reading for 20 years and studied with author Robert Lee Camp. She offers Private readings to individuals on Career, Health, Relationship Compatibility and Yearly life planning.

Open Yourself to Deep Communion


********************************************************************************


Monthly Group Healing with Caryn

April 15. 6:30pm Pacific Time


Connect with me in a relaxed supportive environment while you are infused with the frequencies of Nature. How does Nature express itself to you? How do you present yourself to Nature?


Nature is to the Earth as our Emotional Body is to our Physical Body. Nature is a dimension which holds a healing frequency for the Earth. Our physical body heals when our emotional body is clear and balanced. Earth can heal when Nature is given an opportunity to breathe.


I am offering monthly Group Healings over Zoom. Many years ago in Santa Fe, NM I opened the doors of White Cloud Institute twice a month for anyone who wanted to come into the space and experience a group healing. What that experience was for each person was very unique. I also experienced personal insights and profound healing and expanded meditations every time. One person from those early days has this to say “the group healings are a powerful vehicle for personal spiritual connection, revelation and transformation….for me, they were almost as potent as a one-on-one healing.”


During those one hour sessions I would open myself to Creation energies, inviting in the purifying energies of the elements and infusing creation energies into the space of the group for each person to receive what they needed. I had devoted several years to studying, understanding and communicating with the elements.


Now I am connecting with the pure healing essence of Nature. For the past few years I have been communing with Nature, it’s quiet immensity and its’ nourishing frequencies. I invite you to join me in the pure healing dimension of Nature.  Nature is conscious and aware.  Re discover the healing rhythm of your most healthy body. 


How to Prepare:

Please set aside a little more than one hour for each group healing experience. Set a space for yourself and anyone who is joining you. Light a candle, burn incense, turn off your cell phone (unless you are using the phone to connect on Zoom), and lock the door, or put up a do not disturb sign. You can sit or lay on the floor. Be comfortable, you may feel like stretching or moving at times, or just lying still in deep awareness. Have paper and pencil nearby in case you want to write afterwards.

My co hostess and I will begin and end the hour with a simple verbal cuing. There may not be any talking after, or there may be some who want to share.


You may leave the Zoom call at any time, and if you like you may connect with me later. I will have everyone muted during the group time, until the end, so that there will not be sound coming from individual rooms.


I may not be able to converse afterwards as I am in a very expanded state of consciousness where words do not exist, but my co hostess WILL be there as a witness for you.


You may register via PayPal at [email protected]

The fee for each session is $15.

I will send you the Zoom ID link after you have registered.
