Mediumship Group Sitting
Hosted by Stephanie Harris
Stephanie's Mediumship Group Sitting, commonly referred to as a "Spirit Circle", is limited to ten people, so that the group is small enough to allow individual time with each person. Please note that this is a public group setting and is a different experience than that of a private session. The group settings are held in a warm and intimate atmosphere, where new friends are often created from this shared experience.
Individuals in the group will receive messages from their loved ones who have passed on. As Stephanie links with Spirit, she will move through the group in a random manner as she delivers messages from Loved Ones. The experience of a group sitting is beautiful and touching. Above all, this is a time to connect with loved ones, so that they can communicate with you in their own way, with messages of Love, Hope and Healing. Join us with an open heart, open mind, and open to receive.
Stephanie likes to say that she acts as the bridge between the spiritual and the physical worlds, with the intention of healing both worlds.
The sittings typically run approximately two hours. The sitting starts promptly, so you’re encouraged to arrive at least 15 minutes early, so Stephanie can use all the time available. Seating is very limited. Register in advance at:

Crafty Meditation Mala Bead Making
At GGIW we know that meditation comes in many forms, including crafting. Each student will create a mala bead bracelet and keychain. A mala is a strand of beads, traditionally used as part of the counting practice during meditation, intention setting, mindful practice or prayer. The use of these powerful strands of beads dates back to at least the 10th century, allowing the user to focus on a single thought or mindset during meditation. The traditional mala is 108 beads. Our crafty meditation focus is to create two smaller items, to get to understand the background as well as experience and enjoy the creation of these uniquely personal items.
Students will select from the following intentions for this workshop:
- Healing This intention incorporates Bloodstone strengthens the immune system; green adventurine to uplift and purify the physical body
Happiness This intention incorporates Ocean Jasper is the ultimate happiness stone; chrysoprase helps one to find divinity, promotes joy and happiness and eases depression.
Love This intention incorporates Rose Quartz is the ultimate stone for love. It helps break down barriers around the heart, allowing love to flow in and out the heart. It aids one in loving themselves so that they can allow others to love them as well... making this an idea stone to heal a relationship or finding a soul mate.
- Soul Purpose This intention incorporates Obisdian which inspires and vitalizes one's soul purpose. It aids in bringing clarity to a situation and removes mental clarity.
In addition to the gemstones and decorative beads, you'll learn how to use metal and wood beads in this bracelet and keychain creations, as they provide additional color and earthly grounding.
