“In a crystal we have clear evidence of the existence of a formative life principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is nonetheless a living being.” - Nicola Tesla
Our Journey to the Temple
The Crystal Temple has its roots in the Crystal Council Suzanne first consulted with, via her shamanic journeying practice, nearly 20 years ago. At that time, she went to them seeking permission and advice around selling her healing gemstone talismans, wanting to make sure she did so in alignment with her deep respect for the crystals as ancient, intelligent beings.
The crystals were supportive of her working with them, but asked that she always present them as sacred, taught about their energies and properties, and helped them on their journeys to heal, teach, protect, and comfort. That first meeting with the Council defined the direction Suzanne’s crystal journey took, and there were many check-ins along the way.
When Suzanne and Toni first opened the doors to Rock Mama, they checked in once again, and received the crystals’ blessings and encouragement, as long as the shop continued to honor those initial agreements.
In a more recent Council session, however, the Crystals asked for a larger reciprocal offering: the creation of a Crystal Temple. Their request was for a sacred space, a re-visioning of the ancient temples where crystals were honored as sacred and shared with the community. The vision was for a space where people could come and commune with a physical Council of Crystals, intentionally gathered together for the purpose of healing. The request was heard, the seed was planted, the vision took form, and the time has now come for the Rock Mamas to honor their pledge and open the Temple doors.
Our vow is to open the Temple at least once a week to small groups for the soul purpose of communing with these ancient and wise beings. We ask that you are respectful of the space and the crystals, come with an open mind and open heart, and let the experience be what it is for you without expectation.
The Crystal Temple will be open every Wednesday from 11am – 2pm and, as space is limited, you must be registered to participate. The Temple Experience is free, although donations are accepted (but not required) to help recover the costs.
In the future, we hope to be able to sustain opening the Temple more often, and commit to working towards that goal.
