Crystal Healing WorkshopsBooks of interest
Lots of the workshop material is from my own material and or written from notes from study and workshops I've taken and from books and pamphlets that are not in wide distribution. I also on occasion, receive information from crystal Deva.
This is just a list of some that may be of interest to you. There are no required book for the workshops.
I initially used the book
"Crystal Healing using the power of health and harmony " by Simon Lilly as a sort of rough course outline. It is not a really great book but has a page or two on most of the major areas involved with crystal work so I started using it as a sort of checklist so I wouldn't leave out a major area but the workshop has expanded way beyond that initial outline.
Most of these are fairly traditional books.
"Color and Crystals a journey through the chakras " by Joy Gardner which is a good small book for beginners and I highly recommend it. This was one of the first books on crystals I encountered.
Healing With Crystals And Gemstones: Balance Your Chakras And Your Life" by Daya Sarai Chocoran is another one of the first books I saw it has some very good basic layout information. On the other hand it has many warnings and sets limitations which I feel are invalid.
" Love is in the Earth, a Kaleidoscope of Crystals" by Melody and the pictorial supplements and "Laying on of Stones" by Melody
"Love is in the Earth" is huge and virtually an Encyclopedia of crystal properties perhaps to the extent of being a bit overwhelming. After about 500 pages it seems like every stone is good for everything.
Melody is a metaphysical writer and does not have the most correct information about which stones should not be consumed.
Three books by Katrina Raphael
"Crystalline transmission", "Crystal enlightenment" and "Crystal Healing " May be rather New Age but has some good stuff has some stuff that is completely different than my experience too. These are important sources of information about master crystal formations. An Ascended Master, planes and rays , Hyrarchy of Light type book.
"Healing with Gemstones and Crystals "Diane Stein very good material on some of the emerging chakra.
Her radical Feminist and Wiccan, focus is not as over the top here as in some of her work.
Other books that you might find interesting include
Scott Cunninghams "Crystal Gem and Metal Magic" Una Silbeys "The complete crystal Guidebook"
Sela Randazzo's " I am Rock medicine " Has a very different outlook and a system that is based on the chemical content of specific stones. Not a favorite but it is very different than other crystal healing books. New printing titled "Rock Medicine" is in print. Even though we come from completly different viewpoints of Crystal healing this is an interesting book.
"Gemstones of the World" by Walter Schuman which has photographs and information about the technical stuff like where the stones come from and hardness etc. This is very useful
Dael Walkers "Crystal Healing" I have a very old version of this. and it is small but useful.
"Crystal medicine" by Marguerite Elsbeth is not really my cup of tea but has a lot of Alchemical and Native American info.
One called I think "the Power Stones" I can't find at the moment to check the author has some good stuff and some that is so completely wrong (imo) that I almost scream at the book.
Another book that is interesting is called "The book of Sacred Stones" written by Barbara G. Walker. ISBN 0-06-250921-7. The author thinks the whole concept of crystal healing and energy is the stupidest idea ever and it is intended to thoroughly disprove and denounce everything about crystal work. She covers just about everything each stone has ever been thought to effect and give the chemical information etc. So its a pretty good reference if you can ignore the stridently hostile preaching She opens with a rather lovely crystal meditation visualization too.
There are also a large number of books that are on related subjects or have sections about stones that I may refer too. I also consult a lot of material on energy work, Spiritual healing , meditation,color healing and metaphysics. I have a fairly large assortment of books (actually when we moved in 1998 by weight we had 6000 pounds of books according to the moving company) so I don't think anyone need try to catch up.
I have gotten a number of new Crystal books that i need to write up since I wrote this and hope to update the page soon .
