Empowered learning

This Crystal Healing Certification Course is:

 Comprehensive and Grounded

By the end of Class 2, you will never need to ask another living soul, “What does this crystal do?” or, “What crystal would be good for X?”
By the end of Class 8, your understanding of the subtle body will be comprehensive and nuanced, expanding and deepening your ability to discern imbalances.
By the end of your Practicum, you will be prepared to offer sessions in confidence, grounded through your Heart.

HOW THIS COURSE IS UNIQUE

  • On-going, personalized coaching and support as you work through the course from the instructor – you get to choose the level of interaction you desire through the two program options. 
Also:
  • This course offers an alternative approach to crystal healing. It is deeply grounding, comprehensive, and focuses on individual empowerment through heart-centered discernment.
  • Crystals are the teacher. This is an exciting, different paradigm! Are you wondering if crystals offer more than what crystal prescriptives claim?  This approach to learning about crystalline healing properties can create a deeper connection between you and each of the crystals you’ve been called to work with.
Minerals are expressing their subtle energy to us through numerous self-referential aspects. This means we don’t need a crystal guru/expert/master to tell us when to work with specific crystals. And in fact, when we understand the mineral kingdom on its own terms, we realize how limiting and incomplete crystal prescriptions can be.
Learning how to recognize and explore the physical aspects of each crystal helps us relate to each crystal as the multidimensional ally it can be. We understand how crystals can be applied to the subtle anatomy in numerous ways – not based only on color, other people’s experiences, or limiting prescriptions. 
Also:
  • The course also deepens and expands your subtle energetic work as you explore the numerous vibrational qualities of each chakra, of each of the human energy fields, of the etheric field, and of the subtle channels.Path of Transformation
Used with permission from
the Essential Light Institute
Our primary focus in crystal therapy – in all subtle healing modalities – is the subtle anatomy. The energetic aids we’ve been called to work with are crystals. We would expect a heart surgeon to have a thorough knowledge of the function of the heart and its relationship to the entire body first and foremost, and not only be concerned with the scalpel.

I am not one who falls into color matching or taking channeled messages as factual. We are living in a paradigm that needs room for expansion as well as results. This course put me on a path of continual growth and curiosity as opposed to regurgitating outdated dogma.

Private online group for PC candidates and graduates
Certified Practitioner Candidates and Graduates enjoy the added benefit of having a meeting place online to meet other Heart-centered, empowered people who desire to be Light in the world. In addition to getting important announcements from me, students and graduates find a safe space to ask questions, share experiences, talk about assignments, explore subtle energy concepts, share pictures of healing spaces and crystals, and much, much more.
This is where we continue to learn and grow together, even after the program ends. Practitioner Certification students and graduates enjoy lifetime access to this group.
(PC students are required to join this group for the duration of their time as a student so they don't miss out on important Program-wide announcements).

(click to enlarge)


2017 brings an additional benefit to Practitioner Certification Candidates: live web classes! Hosted by Tana every 4-6 weeks, members of the CTSEW Facebook group gather through Zoom to engage in lively discussion around a topic of their choice.  This is a great opportunity to connect with the other people who are taking or have taken the course. We share our questions, answers, and experiences as we grow in our practice. 

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

The 2 initial classes hold your KEYS to empowerment. You will learn how to read the numerous physical properties of crystals including the formation origin, chemical composition, crystal system, and mineral class - and see how these physical properties inform us to crystals' healing properties. 
It is so exciting and liberating to realize that we don't need to ask another person how to work with these majestic tools. We don't need crystal dictionaries or anyone else to be an intermediary between us and the sacred messages these crystals have to share with us. These two classes are PACKED with information that you will then practice learning to work with in each of the following classes. It all comes together in a really powerful way by the time you complete Class 10. And - to ensure you can get the most out of these first two classes, you'll be mailed a crystal set with specifically chosen crystals to work with in Portfolio Assignments 1 and 2.
Class 3 presents you with exciting and in-depth energy principles to consider that help us connect more deeply with our experiences and expand our perceptions of what is possible.
And LIGHT! We talk specifically about the difference between subtle and physical energy; how subtle energy communicates to and through us; Light energy; and the why and HOW a crystal's energy is a sacred healing tool in subtle energy work and how to work with it.
You will learn how to identify master quartz formations and what each represents in subtle healing. AND - to me, the most important part of the class - learn how Quartz works with and through various types of energy (at least 16 different ways!). Learn about programming Quartz and why Quartz is considered THE Master Healer.
I personally don't refer to color much in my healing practice and there are 2 reasons for that: 1) it felt hollow for me when I was first learning about crystal healing and inhibited my ability to experience resonance with the minerals I was called to work with. 2) Once I learned how to communicate with crystals through their physical properties, my whole world opened up and my healing work accelerated and deepened in a powerful way. I share this with you in case you have also had that experience - you're not alone. And truth be told, given the other aspects we have to work with, color-matching is actually one of the least-effective ways to work with crystalline energy. In this class, you'll learn why.
Having said that - MANY people are drawn to crystals because of their color. Many people experience resonance with crystals through their color. So don't worry - we don't throw out color in this course. What we will do is explore how to work with color in a more nuanced way which can deepen your work with the minerals. In Class 5 we begin to explore chromotherapy and consider how the hue of a mineral, alongside its its other physical properties, can more effectively be used in subtle healing work.
In Classes 5, 6, and 8, you will also learn about each aspect of the subtle anatomy which encompasses the chakras, the etheric layer, the auric layers, and the subtle channels. You learn how these subtle aspects are interconnected. You learn about the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual governance of each aspect.
Your knowledge of the subtle body becomes more nuanced which deepens your subtle healing practice by refining your assessments and treatment choices. In the Portfolio Assignments, you begin to work on client scenarios: assessing imbalances and learning how to apply crystals to the subtle anatomy according to their physical properties.
This is my favorite class and I'm so thrilled when students say it is their favorite class too. As far as I'm concerned, this is THE most important class in this course.
The Heart chakra and the field of the heart are the strongest and most wide-reaching aspects of our subtle anatomy. There's a reason for that. Collectively, we are slowly starting to move from a solar-plexus motivated way of life to a Heart-centered way of life. Transformation, in my experience and in my witnessing of others' transformation, happens in the Heart.
If you've ever said, "I'm not intuitive," or, "I can't access my intuition," or, "I get intuitive messages but then I don't know if I can trust them," - if you've ever wanted to understand the lessons of the Heart available to you in this lifetime, this class is for you.
You will learn about the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual governance of the Heart Chakra, just like you did for the Higher 3 and and the Lower 3 chakra classes, but in Class 7 we investigate the Field of your Heart and how the Field of your Heart communicates and receives information. You learn about the Heart Chakra and its lessons, its intuitive role, and how to help heal the Heart Chakra with crystals. You also learn why the Heart Chakra and the Field of the Heart are the most important aspects of our Subtle Anatomy and the similarities in form and function between our hearts and crystals! 
You will learn about the two most popular models of the subtle channels and how these channels interact with the chakras and fields of the subtle body. We'll explore how we might allow the channels to become an important aspect of our crystal healing practice through some exercises and crystal placement example that you can experiment with on yourself. Understanding the channels and how they work with the other subtle energetic aspects can allow for a deeper subtle energy healing session.
Human Energy Fields - there are more than we can count. In classes 5, 6, and 7, we explored the etheric field and the auric fields as they relate to our chakras from one particular perspective - using the Chakra Maps from the Essential Light Institute (with permission). In class 9 we will consider other models such as Dr. Tiller's, and learn about the Morphogenetic Field. 
In this class, you will learn about sensing and assessing energy of the subtle body through the various fields of the subtle body as well as the fields around us. We can work with crystals, tools, our hands, and more to sense and assess.
Additionally, we will consider the concept of protection and shielding from a different perspective and consider crystals that may be useful should we feel called to transmute energy that is no longer desired.
Class 10, your last of the core classes. In this class you will learn how to create and maintain sacred space for your practice and and your home; how to create and work with crystal grids with sacred geometry; and how to bring crystal therapy into your personal or professional practice of healing and wellness in a confident, ethical way.
Up to now we've focused on the fields of the subtle anatomy and considered the fields that connect us all. In this class we will take a look at the Earth's fields and consider how these energies can affect us and how they might inform the way we choose to set up our sacred space. There are crystals which can help us transmute the effects of human-created fields which our bodies are learning to evolve around, and we'll discuss those as well as how you can determine crystals that might increase these energies.
The Practicum Unit is a chance to explore what it means to have a subtle energy healing practice and work with people one-to-one. You'll explore: 
  • what your local jurisdiction requires to practice
  • what kind of healer you want to be
  • how you want to provide treatments
  • professional boundaries, ethics, and your responsibilities as a subtle energy healer
  • how to communicate and work with clients before, during and after sessions
  • how to create your session paperwork and how to use forms as information gathering and ice-breaking tools
  • how to give a crystal therapy session with 3 volunteer clients
  • how to complete self-assessments post-sessions so you can grow as a healer
  • and more.
The Practicum Unit is fully guided, meaning that I am available to you DIRECTLY by phone, email, and video chat during your time as a practitioner candidate. You are working with numerous schedules (volunteers and your own course deadline) and so PCs can expect me to be available to them in an expedient manner. Often people ask me how I can facilitate a Practicum Unit over the Internet. This is how. We do the work together and you contact me with your questions, concerns, fears, triumphs, and more throughout. One-to-one, personally guided.
This Concentration Unit is an exciting option for PC: I students to join me here in Western Washington to deepen not only your understanding of the concepts you've learned throughout the CTSEW course, but to continue your personal healing work in a personalized workshop setting.
Because there may be travel and accommodation expenses, depending where you live, this offering is not a requirement to graduate or to become a PC:I student. The PC:I program option is for any student who desires an extra 6 months to complete their coursework, 18 personal awareness coaching sessions and/or subtle energy healing sessions, as well as the opportunity to work with me one-to-one while completing their studies.
If you desire to learn about crystal therapy while also working on your own personal healing, the PC:I course option is an excellent choice even if you decide to not complete the concentration unit.
If you do choose to complete the concentration unit, you will complete an additional 18 hours of study
which will allow you to:
  • practice in-person subtle energy healing sessions
    • concentrating on the subtle anatomy
  • sensing the different auric layers and recognizing their influence on the chakras
  • practicing applying crystals to various subtle body aspects
  • practice distance healing sessions
    • working specifically through the field of the Heart
  • practice connecting to and engaging all chakras with the field of the Heart
  • an in-depth look at creating and working with crystal grids
    • concentrating on stone combinations and intention setting
  • learning about healer self-care
  • and more
We will discuss this during your consultation prior to enrollment to make sure all of your questions are answered about this offering.
I learned more in this course than I imagined possible. As a life-long lover of crystals, I thought this class would just teach me more about what each crystal ‘does’. Instead, I grew as an intuitive and developed my knowledge of the subtle energy systems. The practicum was wonderful, and Tana’s support was incredibly helpful. She was there every step of the way! I highly recommend this course!
Emelie Collet, CCTP – April 2016

crystal healing course


This is an amazing program. Tana has created a very rational approach to Crystal Therapy by building a curriculum which teaches real world physical science aspects of crystals and explores elemental and chemical relationships to human systems without being dry or boring. All the while exploring metaphysical implications and developing intuition and clinical assessment skills. The dialog is rich and grounded like no other class I’ve seen. The informational resources she has complied by themselves are worth the cost in my opinion. The private Facebook group has developed into an amazing community that you can stay connected to. You will leave this course feeling prepared and ready to work. I really can’t recommend this enough, it will take your study to a whole other level. Mona V., Program Graduate

The Creating a Crystal Essence Guide

This 30-page PDF guide gives you detailed, step-by-step instructions to safely create crystal essences.
Crystal essences are a great way to work with crystals because they can be applied to so many aspects of your life in so many ways. Available after Class 3.


Recommendation from a recent graduate:
Tana’s Crystal Therapy in Subtle Energy Work Program is a multimedia learning experience that is professionally developed and delivered better than any other type long distance learning program I have experienced.
I spent a lot of time looking for and comparing crystal therapy courses and found the Elemental Healing Arts & Training course to be the most comprehensive.  After my first conversation with Tana, I knew I had found a teacher that was personally interested in my success.
Crystal Therapy in Subtle Energy Work Program not only educates you about crystal healing, but more importantly, teaches you how to be a crystal healer.
The classes, readings, videos, illustrations, assignments, and crystal supplies are all woven into an educational journey with thoughtfulness and love.  It is hard to imagine how much time Tana put into making this integrated and fulfilling educational and practical learning experience.
Tana makes sure that you have all the knowledge and tools you need to setup your own crystal healing practice upon graduation. It is a complete educational experience and practitioner model.

FAQ

Traditionally, certification courses - courses that "certify" a person in a particular skill or knowledge base - are reviewed and approved by accreditation agencies that also work with any governing agencies that oversee licensing and practice requirements. This course has been accredited by the World Metaphysical Association and the Accreditation Council of Holistic Healers.
While there are currently no governing agencies in place that provide licensing or continuing education requirements (please be sure to check your local jurisdiction), these agencies provide an oversight, as well as a code of ethics and mission statement for teachers and schools who desire to be held accountable.
Please be sure to read the Policies and Terms for full details about oversight, continuing education requirements, and course/school cooperation.
This course is for the person who
  • desires to approach crystals in a more analytical way, grounded in the science of the mineral kingdom
  • wants to learn how to work with that analytical knowledge in an intuitive, Heart-led way
  • wants to honor and learn from their own unique experiences
  • is ready to explore the subtle anatomy and learn how to work within it in a deeply nuanced way
  • has an open-mind and an open-Heart
  • takes personal responsibility for their empowerment and growth, and desires to empower others
Because the program is comprehensive, previous experience in subtle energy healing or with crystals is not necessary.
I work with students from a wide range of backgrounds: people who are brand new to crystal healing, people who have worked with minerals from a purely mineralogical perspective, people who have been healing with the help of the mineral kingdom for years, those with new subtle energetic healing practices, and those with long-established subtle healing practices.
If you are considering either Practitioner Certification program, I will schedule a phone call with you to help us BOTH make sure this is the right crystal healing program for you. There are many choices available to you and it is vital that you choose the program that will help you flourish and achieve your goals.
I came completely without any knowledge of Crystals. Only mesmerized by them and wondering what the big buzz others made about crystals was all about. I wanted to learn from an accurate and approved source. I stumbled upon Tana’s program through what I feel was Spiritual Intervention. Johanna Serbousek, CCTP – April 2016
Because this course teaches a unique methodology to learn about a crystal's healing properties, and teaches the subtle anatomy in a very thorough way, it offers an opportunity for expansion anyone regardless of past experience and courses taken.
I work with students who are brand new to crystals, as well as those who have established subtle healing practices who have been working with crystals for years. Graduates repeatedly report having gained a deeper appreciation for the mineral kingdom, a wider perspective to approach crystals, and a more expansive view of the subtle anatomy.
If you are considering either Practitioner Certification program, I will schedule a phone call with you make sure your questions about the course are answered and to help you discern if this is the course for you. There are many options and it’s very important that you find the right program for you.
I have taken Crystal Certification before, but nothing like this! This class is hands down the best course out there, to really teach and make you a better Practitioner. Rokeya B – Summer, 2014
Each class, as well as the Practicum Unit is delivered electronically through the Elemental Healing Arts and Training Courses online portal. There you will find for each class:
  • a PDF Outline which includes the class overview, the required reading assignment, as well as additional resources to consider at your leisure
  • any additional handouts that might be included for that topic
  • the pre-recorded lecture video – so you can do your classwork according to your schedule
  • downloadable PDF of the lecture’s PowerPoint
  • the Portfolio Assignment PDF
"Attendance" is taken through the course portal which tracks the hours you are logged on at each page. Class assignments are submitted to your instructor as an attachment in an email and personal feedback is delivered usually through email, sometimes through a phone call.
Each class is delivered weekly according to your unique registration date. (There is no group schedule). Class 1 is available the day you complete registration. If you register on a Tuesday, each subsequent class will be released every Tuesday thereafter for 9 weeks. The Practicum Unit will be released on Week 11.
IMPORTANT: This does NOT mean you have to finish each class in a week.

In fact, I’d prefer that you don’t.

Yes, you read that correctly. This course has been described as in-depth, serious, college-level, challenging, life-changing…. To get the most out of this investment you’ve made in yourself, the very best gift you can give yourself is the gift of time and space to dive deeply into each class. Take your time and submit Portfolio Assignments that are thorough and thoughtful, showing me that you really explored the information presented and considered its application.
This depends on the program track and the individual student’s personality, learning style, and reading speed. On average, each class can take anywhere between 3 – 8 hours, depending on the topic. For example, the Master Formations Class lecture is about 90 minutes in length. With the required reading assignment and portfolio assignment, students should be able to complete Class 4 in 4-6 hours.
Class 5 has a required reading assignment, a 50 minute lecture video, and an in-depth Portfolio Assignment which asks you to combine the knowledge you’ve learned all 5 classes and begin applying it in theoretical situations. Students have reported spending anywhere from 6 to 10 hours on this class.
Students on the Personal Enrichment have access to class assignments so that they can test for comprehension and deepen their program experience, but please note: PE students will not submit assignments and are not required to complete them.
Whether your program track provides 12 or 18 months to complete the course requirements, you will continue to have the option to work directly with me right up to the finish date.
If, for example, you are on the PC: Guided track and you complete your 10 core classes and Practicum in 8 months, you can still schedule 4 more monthly 60-minute one-to-one meetings with me as you begin to apply what you've learned to your practice of subtle energy healing.
And as a graduate of the PC program, you are welcome and encouraged to remain a member of the Private CTSEW Facebook group and continue taking advantage of the live web gatherings and discussion. Additionally, you will continue to have access to your course materials (lecture videos, handouts, etc) after graduation when you complete your studies by your deadline.
The short answer is that extensions shouldn't be necessary if you're making the course a priority and haven't overscheduled yourself. Be sure to read the CTSEW Program Terms and Conditions for policies regarding deadlines, extensions, and refunds. And please bring any questions to our consultation so that I can clarify anything for you!
When I have taken courses in the past, I have always found it very helpful to be able to contact my teacher when a question arose that I couldn't find the answer to on my own. Or maybe a concept was just out of my reach without some additional instructional assistance.
When we are studying subtle energy healing, we might also have personal healing experiences that, without assistance, might feel overwhelming. I feel that it is my responsibility as a teacher of the subtle energetic arts, to be available to you when you've made an intentional agreement with the universe to step into this work. So that I can ensure I have enough time for each of my students, as well as clients, I limit the number of PC students I have in-progress at any given time.
Traditional testing methods such as true/false, multiple choice, and fill-in-the-blank are inherently dualistic and indicate a “right” answer, which also indicates there are “wrong” answers. In the realm of subtle energy, dualism does not exist. Crystal prescriptions are too general and unhelpful because they do not approach the individual uniquely and they fail to respect the wide-ranging possibilities the minerals offer to us. In the same way, these types of testing methods are too general and do not respect the student’s unique gifts and needs.
Portfolio assignments offer multiple benefits over traditional testing methods:
  • They give students the opportunity to sit with and consider the information they’ve learned in a more thoughtful way. Students are given an opportunity to shine – to really showcase their understanding of the knowledge presented and how they might integrate it into their healing practice over time.
  • They give students the opportunity to sit with concepts that might have been challenging and work it out through their long-form answers and exercises. It helps students determine where they might need to ask for additional support or information.
  • As your teacher, portfolio assignments allow me to assess your level of comprehension, see where additional instruction might be helpful, as well as determine if the required reading assignment and lecture viewing were effective.
  • Long form answers allow me to get to know each student individually so that I can best serve them as they work toward  their unique goals. It opens up a line of communication that traditional testing does not.
  • Portfolio assignments create a timeline of knowledge and integration. They show both the student and the instructor how the student has progressed over time. Each assignment integrates the previous classes’ information and combines it with the most recent class taken. It allows for a (w)holistic approach to learning.
