Chakra Tales

Putting a New Spin on your Stories


I am excited to announce a NEW Original class that you can experience from home. NOW is the time to re create your Energy Field, and your Chakras, to reflect lessons learned and the ways in which we want to proceed. With new awareness and new information about life on Earth we can upgrade our lives by re setting our energetic matrix to allow new information to flow through us.


I have updated my 'Chakra Tales' student workbook, (2001), and added 8 YouTube videos for you to play with at home. You will receive weekly written lessons and videos that will guide you on a journey through your personal energy field. We will use sound, color, music, meditation, movement to activate and clear each chakra. You get to draw and write and re write yourself into a NEW YOU.

Open Yourself to Deep Communion

Monthly Group Healing with Caryn

September 17.  6:30pm Pacific Time

October 15.  6:30pm Pacific Time

November 19. 6:30pm Pacific Time

December 17. 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.


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.
