Mind-Body-Spirit.....and Jewelry; Can wearing certain gems or jewelry designs actually influence how you feel at a much deeper level than you thought?
Ever wonder why you seem to be attracted to certain gems or types of settings? Throughout the ages, distinctive pieces of jewelry with specific gemstones were worn not only for their beauty but were thought to carry an energetic property or "medicine " that would amplify desired properties such as strength, protection or abundance for the person wearing it. Modern research on Mindfulness affirms a connection between what we think and how we feel... but is it all just thoughts in our head? And even if it is, do our thoughts really influence how we feel?
We will have fun exploring various opinions and lore on the energetic resonance of gems, their colors, their symbolism, and certain indigenous spiritual beliefs on their meanings. Our speaker, Kristie Zahn, has traveled the world, spending time in study at Ashrams in India, with Peruvian elders in the Rainforest, and with Native American medicine people learning the beliefs and nuances of spirituality. She is a Board certified chaplain, and teaches classes in Mindfulness and stress management/meditation in southeastern WI. She will share some interesting ideas on how wearing certain jewelry/gems might just enhance your well-being in surprising ways.
