This guided meditation will take place in the Salt Cave and includes a salt therapy treatment. We will be using Selenite Harmonizers during the hour in the Salt Cave. Selenite is a powerful cleansing and healing tool that has the ability to clear, protect and shield your energy body. It is one of the few minerals that has the healing ability to quickly unblock stagnant and negative energy, removing all energy blockages to create a fluid flow of energy throughout the body. Selenite crystals shield you from outside influences, since one of the Selenite healing properties is to evoke protection from the angelic realm. It helps to dispel all negative energy from the body and mind, bringing calming energies, deep peace and mental clarity.

 Cost:  $35

Please understand that all workshops are non-refundable!

Join our healing support community group for monthly live, local education within a community of like-minded people looking for answers, moving forward, and healing "the Medical Medium Way".  If you are looking for answers to any chronic, ongoing condition (or several) that affect your daily life,  learn about what is believed to be the common causes of so many common “mystery illnesses”, such as:

Autoimmune diseases, Adrenal Fatigue, ADHD, Autism, Alzheimer’s, CANCER, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Pain, Eczema/Psoriasis, Depression/Anxiety, Digestive disorders (IBS, Colitis, Leaky Gut, Crohn's), Fibromyalgia, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Shingles, Thyroid disorders, Vertigo & Tinnitus, and EVEN Menopausal issues!

Presentations are based on following the health recommendations of Anthony William. William is the author of several books that recommend methods we can all use to independently heal ourselves and our loved ones. 

APRIL Healing from the Inside Out Class


PLUS:  Organic Gardening and In Other Words, Can I Still Drink?

APRIL 27th, 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM


Learn why traditional habits of eating by choosing 1) comfort foods, or 2) the food-as-fuel approach by eating foods solely based on their nutritional content, never truly satisfies us. Comfort foods seem to ease stress or unhappiness or cravings in the moment, but guilt often follows. Food-as-fuel takes all emotion out of eating. We are eating because we have to, but counting calories and reading labels becomes stressful. We might restrict food intake, shun snacks, or live off protein powders that often taste like dirt.

There are many “diet” or “healthy food” programs out there. They promote some great ways to get healthier by telling us what not to eat, like gluten and dairy. Avoiding gluten, packaged products, and dairy can help anyone feel better and lose weight! But do these programs also tell us 1) what real, healing foods are, 2) specifically what to eat for any physical issues we are facing, and 3) why? Do you only want to lose weight, or do want to learn how to make the best choices you can to heal your body at the same time?

The Medical Medium is committed to teaching us that eating more real, live foods are the best choice we can make. There IS a way to Eat to Heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually! To feel good about what you eat, to replace traditional comfort foods with better choices that you will still find comfort in, and to reduce or eliminate cravings.

Other Topics:  A Master Gardener will give us Organic Gardening Tips; and there will be a short discussion on whether or not to drink alcohol, and what the better choices are.Other Topics: A Master Gardener will give us Organic Gardening Tips; and there will be a short discussion on whether or not to drink alcohol, and what the better choices are.
