Home Meditation Course: Energetic Healing through the Field of Being (SOLD OUT)
anywhere you may be, January 13-March 20 (10 weeks)
This course explores one of my favorite practices, The Field of Being; this is the heart of my personal practice as a healer. We explore the physical and energetic layers of the being, slowly expanding our experience and skill over two and a half months. Working with this practice will deepen your ability to ground, create clear energetic boundaries, and become more fully present in the physical, emotional, and energetic aspects of your body. This knowledge can be useful for cultivating healing as well as for energetic and emotional clarity and protection. It is a wonderful framework in which to begin to explore the finer aspects of the embodiment for all beings; in addition, the Field of Being is a keystone of my Reiki teaching, making this course excellent preparation for Reiki training and an opportunity to become more skillful for established Reiki practitioners.
The Home Meditation Course time commitment is 20-30 minutes a day and 60-90 minutes once a week. The structure looks like this: each Friday you get two emails. One contains the teaching for the week, usually a guided audio recording of meditation. The other email opens the week's Sharing Circle. I respond to each person's post to the Sharing Circle, offering both general teaching and individualized, personal coaching. Posts are requested before noon Monday; I respond Monday afternoon. Posts received after noon Monday will receive a reply at my earliest convenience. After the course the recordings and conversation remain yours for use over time. Course is open to all levels of experience.
We have been pleased to discover that the Home Meditation Courses lead more course participants to successfully establish a regular meditation practice simply because you are practicing at home from the start. In addition, writing and reading the Sharing Circle rather than speaking it allows for greater depth and facilitates contemplation over time.
Each course is limited to 10 people to ensure space for all to be seen.

Students of Prior Courses have said:
"I offer the heartiest of endorsements of Kristie's meditation class. I'd pretty much given up on ever being able to develop any kind of a meditation practice before taking it. I have one now!"
"I have treasured this group and space. It is a great comfort and learning to be in a space with others learning and experiencing the same teachings. We all come from different places and spaces and have different perspectives. I have valued everyone's words and have learned so much. Thank you."
- Amelia Urban Romaine, MA, ATR-BC, LPC
"A year later I'm practicing nearly every day -- your course took!"
"I am still blown away by Kristie's response to my questions. I feel that each of her responses to my posts are like little love letters to me as I practice, which motivates me even more."
"Kristie's course changed the way I look at meditation. In the past, I've taken a course, read articles and blogs, tried to start a practice of my own and never felt quite at home with it. Kristie's clear, concise explanations made the journey feel like an adventure. It was so helpful to have the recordings so I could practice at my own pace, on my own time. Kristie was very responsive via email, responding to questions or thoughts in a respectful and meaningful way. I look forward to taking the course again."
"My life has changed in significant ways due to your course."
"Years ago, I had the experience of trying yoga for the first time. I couldn't believe at the time that it was possible to feel so good. I just started meditating with Kristie and had that experience again. It's like entering a room you know well, and discovering that there has been a window behind one of the walls this whole time. A window with a meadow outside."
"You are like an usher in a vast darkened theater, with a bright shining torch helping us each find our own way. I know I am still very much at the beginning -- of something, not sure what to call it in words -- but it doesn't feel as daunting or unreachable anymore."
"The classes have really changed how I think about my relationship with myself. I feel more capable of treating myself kindly and that has transformed my relationship with other people."
"I enjoy the way that your teachings first cleared some space for me to be with myself, then prompted some questioning as emotions and unfamiliar mental states came up, then gave me enough tools and methods to have some flexibility in finding practices that are helpful to me in these states. This is still in progress."
