With Judith Hirst-Joyeux

Buddha in meditation

One hears that meditation will make your mind calm, that you will feel happier.  Is this true? Is meditation easy to learn?  Do I need special equipment, and if so, what?   What is a mantra, and what good does it do me?

To find out the answers to these questions, join Judy Hirst-Joyeux for a beginner’s class on meditation.

During the workshop, the participant will learn:

  • One quick way to calm the mind
  • Two different types of meditation breathing
  • Three different styles of meditating
  • Four meditations

Judy has been meditating since the mid seventies, and has tried all types of meditation. In this class, you will experience a discussion about meditation, a mixture of meditation practices, a chance to ask questions about what meditation is and is not, and you will have a chance to relax. Bring your questions, water, a journal, and a pillow and blanket. Dress comfortably.

Crystals' Light Workshop
Instructor: Roger Joyeux
Author of: The Story of Light

This is a stand-alone workshop and is PART 1 of the Crystal Layout Practitioner Certification Course.

crystal ball Optical CalciteTo understand crystals, first understand light. Then understand how light works with our minds, chakras, polarity, consciousness, etherics, emotions, awareness, souls, and vibration for healing and empowerment. The light that crystals bring can be highly specialized or quite general. Crystals can promote beauty, temper anger, expand our awareness and consciousness, initiate our spiritual paths, enhance the expression of our truth, heal our maladies, empower our vibrations, and connect us to our guides and higher self. Each crystal works with light in its own unique and special way. Prepare yourself for a thorough and in depth understanding of crystals, how they act on our physical and subtle bodies and bring us into awareness of our true selves and our relation to the enlightened universe. How can crystals help you in your daily life and on your spiritual path?

Crystal Skulls Workshop 1 – How To Work With Your Crystal Skull
Instructor: Judith Hirst-Joyeux

You saw a crystal skull, and knew without a doubt, that you must purchase it. Now, what do you do with it? Is it like a crystal? Does it really talk? Does it have stories to share?


Rose Quartz Crystal Skull Join Judith (Judy) Hirst-Joyeux (BA, Certificate in Education, Certified Management Accountant, Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, Certified Angel Therapist, Reiki Master, Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner, Quantum Touch Practitioner, Medium, Channel, Healer, Sage, non-traditional Shaman), of Angels And Ancestors as she takes you through a day of discovery. Judy is fascinated with skulls, and has meditated with approximately 130 skulls at one time. She became a caretaker for two skulls in 2007 and now has increased her skull family to six. Additionally, her husband Roger has four skulls. Both Roger and Judy buy and sell skulls as part of Angels And Ancestors.

Crystal Skulls are adding a new dimension of communication to the Earth. We can work with skulls to increase our understanding of ourselves, mankind, and even the Universe. This is the first of four workshops created to help individuals and skulls to work together. This is an experiential workshop. Participants will be involved in a variety of exercises to help them communicate with their skulls. Dress casually. Bring a journal, and a list of questions you may have, and your skull. If you do not have a skull, let us know, and we will have one available for you to work with.

Topics included in this one day workshop:
  1. Skulls of light.
  2. Skulls as transmitters.
  3. Crystal Skulls and the Stars.
  4. Learning to "talk" to your crystal skull.
  5. Decoding the messages from your skull.
  6. Does the type of crystal make a difference?
  7. Protecting your skull.
  8. Gratitude and your skull.
  9. Q and A
Ask about us presenting this to you and your friends on a day convient to you.

OPTION ONE: In-person Attendance

OPTION TWO: Online Tele-class
This tele-class will be divided into three 1.5 -hour workshops over three Thursday evenings. Upon registration and payment, you will be sent the link for the class. Note that the class will be recorded, and you will be able to download the recording for one week, under your registration.

Foundations of Light
Instructor: Roger Joyeux
Author of The Story of Light

The Story of Light Module One: Path to Enlightenment: "Spiritual light" is the essence and basis of the spiritual path to enlightenment. Module One provides comprehensive explanations about light and density; the chakras, including history and how they use light, the role of karma; the roles of duality; will; love; the master-student relationship; the nature of enlightenment, and much more.


Module Two: The Subtle Bodies: This module provides an in-depth expose of the modus operand of the mind, intellect, conscious body, etheric body, emotional body, and light body. Prevalent throughout is the role of the magnetic attraction and repulsion of light upon and within the energetic being. Module 2 brings to the fore how each subtle body helps conduct light in a different and unique way that seeks harmony with the larger universe.


Module Three: The Movement of Light: This module expands awareness of spiritual light. Light interacts with Earth's topography, the molecules of the air, and rides the wind. Light stations, such as Banff, serve as grounding zones for higher frequencies. Module 3 explores the movement of light from the Godhead, through our solar system and each of its planets, and on Earth, and a look at the grid system that is adapting itself to our changing world.

Dates: TBA

Learn to Channel Spirit Guides:
Instructor: Roger Joyeux

This is a stand-alone workshop and is PART 2 of the Crystal Layout Practitioner Certification Course.

Archangel Michael When I first initiated the ‘Learn to Channel Spirit Guides’ workshop, my guides, the Angelic Hosts, gave me the following wisdom to pass along:

“The age of co-creation is rapidly approaching, and consciousness is shifting into position to bring the heavens to Earth. We, in the heavens, look with fond adoration upon those who would be willing to work with us to enlighten the Earth. We, of the Legions of Michael, extend our warmest invitation to those who would want to begin to receive our guidance and love.”

Archangel Michael presides over the workshop, and between him, his legions, and your own spirit guides, you learn to channel in a very protected and safe environment. Lower mischievous channel spirits are not an issue. The first part of the workshop dispels many of the myths that serve to hinder the process, and gives clarity to what is going on when you are working with your angelic guides. Understanding the role of love is primary. Numerous practical exercises get you into the flow and help establish your connection to your guides. As a final offering, Archangel Michael sends his message using Roger as his conscious channel medium.


The Agenda: The following is a left-brain list of housekeeping demands. This workshop is an intuitive endeavour in the strongest terms, during which the brain takes a holiday.

  1. Introduction to channelling
  2. Understanding Purpose
  3. Responsibilities of the channel
  4. Understanding spirit guides
  5. Believing in yourself
  6. Establishing protection
  7. The art of listening
  8. Getting ego out of the way
  9. The principle of “no-response”
  10. A word from our sponsor: Archangel Michael
  11. Practical exercises to raise vibration
  12. Practical exercises to begin channelling
  13. Group practice to raise vibration
  14. Sharing perspectives
  15. Connecting with personal spirit guides
  16. Group channelling exercise

Testimonial: See the article in the November 2008 newsletter about one student's journey in channeling
entitled: Learning How to use Crystals and How to Channel from Roger Joyeux”.

Prerequisites:
  • Completion of the “Crystals’ Light” workshop.
  • Completion of the “Learn to Channel Spirit Guides” workshop OR proven and reliable channelling skills involving worthy spirit guides.

Talk to the Trees
Instructor: Judith Hirst-Joyeux

Spirit Tree Some of us were lucky enough to grow up in areas where we had large trees with tire swings tied to the branches. We sat under trees and read books, or played make believe. We learn very early in school that the clean air on this planet is possible because of the clearing and cleaning power of trees. And so, we grow up with a love and appreciation for the power of trees, yet most of us do nothing with that feeling. These workshops are developed to allow people to learn to connect with trees on an emotional and spiritual level.

Workshop 3:
“USING TREE ENERGY IN RITUAL”(2 hours)

Dates: TBA
Our legends tell many stories that talk about the power of different trees. Merlin, the wizard, had a powerful rowan staff. Glastonbury Chapel was created where Joseph of Arimathea and uncle to Jesus of Nazareth, planted his thorn staff in the ground. The next morning, the staff had rooted and grew shoots, showing that the ground was blessed. Shaman who build sweat lodges say that willows cut to form the skeleton of the sweat lodge will often root, making the sweat lodge a living structure. The energy of trees is real. In this workshop with Judy Hirst, BA CMA, ATP® CBP®, learn how to use the energy of trees to enhance rituals and for binding sacred tools.
