Earth Rhythms Healing's workshops, classes and "play"shops are designed to empower the participants to utilize rhythm and flow to improve health, well being, communication and to shift consciousness. We utilize traditional and cutting edge techniques to assist individuals in raising their energetic vibration through understanding the power of thought and the mind. This helps us to heal ourselves, the group mind and ultimately to bring peace, compassion and cooperation to our planet.
"When I first met Stephanie and Matt my life had been turned upside down and I was in a very dark place. Through participating in Earth Rhythms Healing's drum circles, numerous workshops and classes that they offer and aligning myself with their philosophy on life it has helped me to release negative feelings and emotional trauma. Thank you both for showing me the way to a balanced and bright future." Rick Burton

Tuning Into The Akashic Records ~ A Guided Drum Journey Activation
This workshop experience is a guided rhythmic journey to explore the threads of lifetimes that each of us are connected to. We will explore the idea of time and space and how rhythmic meditation can assist each of us in connecting with the many incarnations that we have had and/or will experience helping us to establish the idea of an “eternal” self.
We explore recent scientific discoveries and how they relate to ancient spiritual ideas on multiple lifetimes and reincarnation, tying them together to assist us in healing the multidimensional reality that we are a part of in our current incarnation. Stephanie will lead us in a guided rhythmic meditation to connect with the ideas presented in the workshop. Drummers and non-drummers are welcome. Also, please bring a notebook and pen.
"Miss Stephanie, I was informed by a Reiki healer that I need to go back through my threads and help heal some old hurts, and lend strength to a younger me, to heal where I am today. Also, she said that I needed to go to some past lives as well, and heal hurts that are effecting me in this life, and that's when I told her about your workshop, The Vibrational Lightness Of Being A Journey to Discover Our Eternal Self Through Rhythm, and she said that that would be a great way for me to do it. She said I've been a natural astral projector for most of my life, so that the whole threads idea would be perfect." Kari Crow, Workshop Participant
"Tapping" Into Eternity
Exploring Vibrational Consciousness Through Drumming
We explore how our perception has everything to do with our experiences in our daily lives and that this is only a small portion of what really exists. Through drumming, we create balance between our left and right brain, open our awareness and third eye chakra and create the ability to see greater patterns that help raise our vibration for a broader view of our reality. This program is designed to help us awaken and to stop limiting ourselves. We discuss how our cultures' language and view of time can keep us in a repetitive cycle and how we can use rhythm and our drums to assist us in seeing creative power in our own abilities and individuality. We also explore how regular drumming as a form of meditation and as group communication assists us with confidence, acceptance and community building. Ultimately this helps us to bring peace to ourselves, our communities and our planet. This is a workshop for drummers and people interested in raising consciousness through drumming. We start by drumming together and then we go into the discussion.
Comments from attendees at our "Tapping" Into Eternity workshop at Wisteria Cornstalk Festival 2012:
"Thank you so much for sharing your time and knowledge with us. I thoroughly enjoyed attending your workshop and getting to spend a little time with you. You are a very bright soul. Brightest Blessings!" Angie Mohler
"I enjoyed your workshop and have already shared some of your insights with my drumming and dancing community." Angie Never
"I enjoyed your workshop very much. You articulated what most of us feel, but haven't always been able to manifest and clarify into words. I heard people around paw paw and the palace tent echoing the same concepts that were in your workshop, weaving the consciousness all around Wisteria." Jordan Schmidt
Intro To Chakra Tuning Forks – Sound Healing For Our Bodies, Minds and Spirits
Stephanie explores and demonstrates how using specific tuning forks can help to heal our energy fields as well as our physical bodies. Each Chakra tuning fork is aligned to the body’s 7 Chakras also known as the bodies Energy Centers, including an 8th Chakra now considered the Soul Purpose or Soul Star Chakra. We will discuss how the forks work with our energy to fine tune and align each Chakra with a particular resonance that is connected with our physical, mental and spiritual bodies including our organs, glandular system, mental states and spiritual awareness. We will go over how these forks can be used on a regular basis to gain some of the following benefits:
- Open our energy meridians and clear blocked energy in the chakra centers
- Increase our physical energy
- Boost our immune systems
- Provide a deep state of relaxation
- Synchronize our mind-heart-body rhythms
- Expand our creativity, clarity and concentration
- Elevate our overall mood and feelings of well being
We will also go over the correspondences with color, musical notes and planetary cycles and why they are important to our well being. We will touch on Nada Yoga (the Yoga of Sound) and how we can utilize tuning forks and sound healing to change our thought patterns to benefit our lives and to become more “in tune” with our natural selves.
Drum Circle Facilitation: We offer group and community drum circle facilitation using the drums to guide participants to feel the pulse of the rhythm. We encourage participants to find their "drum voice" which helps with cooperative communication, empathy and confidence.
