Marie Andersen Whitehurst
Crystals, gems and minerals have been prized for thousands of years for their healing properties. Please join us as Marie Andersen-Whitehurst discusses the contemporary use of crystals for personal healing and growth

For thousands of years shamans and healers have employed the energetic qualities of crystals to aid in and enhance the healing process. Today these same energetic qualities allow crystals to be used in many technologies, including watches, radios and computers. Quartz crystals are known amplifiers and have piezeoelectric qualities (meaning an electric charge can be induced in them under pressure).

Crystals, gems and minerals possess subtle energy that affects humans on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. In other words, crystals have an effect on our energy fields. It is this effect on our energetic fields that accounts for the healing qualities ascribed to many crystals. Every type of crystal has specific energetic properties that can be used to interact with our own energies.

There are many ways to use these gifts from God .... elixirs, jewelry, decorator pieces, pocket pieces, and healing tools, to name a few. Learn how to choose, care for and use these pieces of nature for your personal healing and growth. Learn the qualities associated with some of the most helpful crystals. Also learn how crystals, gems and minerals can help you in day-to-day living and for your spiritual growth.

Marie Andersen-Whitehurst is a clinical social worker who uses traditional and non-traditional modalities to work with clients, interweaving spirituality and energy work with traditional practices. In addition to working as a psychotherapist at a mainstream psychiatric center. In addition to her clinical work, she owns a gem and mineral store in Greensboro.

Marie was trained in crystal healing by Melody (author of seven books on the subject) and is one of 33 people trained by Melody to carry on her work in the United States. She also studied with Jane Ann Dow, who is a well-known person in the field of crystal healing. Additionally, Marie is a hypnotherapist trained by Brian Weiss, MD to facilitate Past Life Regression and has had an ongoing weekly healing circle for 11 years.

Items will be for sale at the lecture and workshop.

Chanelled Crystal Meditation
Diana Henderson

SFF Chairperson and Healing and Meditations Board Member Diana Henderson will lead both the early meditation and the brief meditation before the speaker at the August 5 meeting. A Reiki Master/Teacher certified in DNA Activation and Therapeutic Breathwork, Diana has been leading meditations for many years. In addition, she often incorporates guided visualization in her healing work, particularly with DNA Healing techniques and Reiki, and teaches meditation classes.

The early meditation will be a channeled crystal meditation. A vital part
of Diana's work centers on channeling. Her practice includes spiritual or
channeled readings, and her work as a spirit medium and trance channel have
led her to do channeled meditations. Through channeled guidance from the
Council of Light, Diana has been led to begin the Order of Archangel Michael. She and her husband hold group initiation/activation ceremonies for the Order on a regular basis.

In addition to teaching meditation and Reiki I, II and III/Master classes, Diana offers workshops in Connecting with Angels and the "Angel" Within,
Crystals and Healing Stones, Energetic Clearing and Developing Intuitive
Gifts. She also coordinates a weekly prayer circle via e-mail with over 100
participants. To find out more about the Order of Michael, spiritual readings, healing sessions or classes or to take part in the prayer circle, please e-mail Diana at, call 919-552-0524 or visit her website at

The early meditation is held from 6:30
to 7 PM in the Vaughn Wing. Please be on time
so as not to disturb the energy.
