Awaken the Power of Creativity

Awaken the Power of Creativity


Discover and unleash your inherent creativity with this transformative workshop. Despite being inherently creative beings, many of us encounter obstacles that hinder our ability to tap into our creative power. These barriers often manifest as frustration, self-doubt, fear of failure, or a sense of inadequacy.

Join us for an enlightening experience led by award-winning sculptor Christina Bertsos. She will share insights into her intuitive connection with the artistic process and her journey in accessing creative power. Shaman Dr. Lara will also guide you through a shamanic fire ceremony designed to help you release these creative blocks.

This process will foster a renewed receptivity, allowing you to awaken your innate power and bring your imaginative visions to life. Participants will walk away with a renewed sense of their inherent creativity, plus new insights into thinking patterns that can darken their spirit. Ideal participants have a disciplined creative process and are open to using energy-healing work to support their creative focus areas.

Sound Healing Journey

Return to Your Nature: Sound Healing Journey


Return to Your Nature is an invitation to tap into your natural healing wisdom through the medicine of sound and vibration. A powerful path to clearing depression, transforming anxiety, awakening your creative power, and deepening your spiritual practice.

How does it work?

Sound therapy tunes up the physical, mental, and emotional body. This ancient healing comes from the Tibetan/Himalayan cultures and uses metal singing bowls tuned to specific musical notes and frequencies that are aligned with the seven energy centers (chakras) and seven astral bodies. Sound Therapy facilitates shifts in our brainwave state using rhythm and frequency. Rythm and frequency can entrain our brainwaves allowing us to down-shift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), and in some cases reach theta (meditative state) and delta states (deep sleep).

A sound session is both a passive and participatory experience. The passive aspect is that you become more relaxed by laying down and slowing your breath. By doing this, you prepare yourself to become the receiver of sound. It is in this place of stillness that you participate by becoming more open and aware of each sound that comes in. Sound helps create the pathway to this place of stillness the same as a mantra helps you to arrive at the still point in meditation. Some of the main areas that sound can help with are sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, stress management, PTSD, and pain management.

What is it like?

During a typical session you are comfortable laying down or sitting up. I guide you into a safe, deeply meditative state using reiki, my voice, and the healing frequencies of different vibrational instruments: Tibetan and Crystal singing bowls, gongs, chimes, drums, rattle, native flute and tingsha bells. I incorporate breathwork, mantra, and traditional healing from Colombia supporting you as you surrender all tension, tune into higher awareness, connect with your heart wisdom and release stagnant energies and old patterns within your body and mind.

Bring a yoga mat, pillow, blanket, and any props that will enhance your comfort during the session or that are special to your soul. Also a journal and pen to document the insights you receive during the session.

We will end the session with a sharing of organic loose lea tea blend or cacao from Colombia, journaling and and a sharing circle.

The energy exchange for this workshop is $40 per person.
