A little about Monika

The quality of life is about the time you invest in yourself

I have studied herbology and used applied plant medicine, wildcrafted, grown, and created herbal teas, and tinctures for myself, family, friends and colleagues for over 25 years. I have worked in horticulture, business and healthcare for a combination of over 30 years. My most recent passions and experience over the last few years are in Crystal healing, Reiki, Indian Head and Foot massage, Crystal wand & rollers face massage, meditation, acupressure, aura cleansing and chakra balance. I love to spend time with my 3 children and cat in my zen space at home or out in nature in the forests hiking, skiing or on the water kayaking. All things green, and gardening are my passion and collecting and working with mother earths gems and crystals. My soul soars when I connect with women in circle and celebrate magickal ways of our ancestors. I believe that all life flows through us and to us from a divine universal energy source.

Mentor, teachers, coaches and certificates

I have always been researching, reading and practicing various holistic methods for many years. As a child and into my teen years, I always had a passion and love for flowers, berries and herbs. This led me to study in the early 90’s with the College of the Rockies as a Horticulture Technician and with the Wild Rose College of Natural Healing in Calgary, AB I also gained certification in Herbology Courses. The first of my 3 children was born in 1993, and I incorporated my teachings in our lifestyle. I had a large mountain garden, busy family life, worked in business administration, healthcare, and ran a rental vacation home. In 2019, I began to feel again the desire to travel, learn and gain some certification through more accreditation. The children were getting older and more independant, so I started with the International College of Energy Healing in Victoria on Vancouver Island. Through a series of online, in class practicums and teachings I now have 3 certificates from this school. Crystal Healing Fundamentals, Certified Crystal Therapy Practitioner and Advanced Crystal Healing Techniques. Summer of 2019 I also took a Indian Head Massage class with Bliss Prema on the Island to add to my repertoire. This ancient Ayurvedic massage art form dates back to 1800 BC. I did hands on practicums in all these techniques with my coaches, other students, family, friends & clientele.

It didn’t stop there as we went into 2020, I also enrolled in the Love and Light School of Crystal Therapy. I dove into the 1st Covid19 year excited to take courses in using Crystals with Reiki, Crystal-Sagge (massage with rollers, combs, wands and balls on face, neck, head and feet areas) gaining certificates in Crystal Therapy for Bodyworkers and Crystal Reiki Master. In isolation with me was my 18 year old daughter, so she got all the benefits of me practicing on her and to this day I swear it helped us both stay healthy in mind, body, soul and spirit.

2021 is here now and my love of learning and the holistic healing arts has not stopped! I have refreshed and completed the Ayurvedic practice of Indian Foot & Head Massage with the Canadian Training Center for Healing Alternatives. I am ready to share and launch this practice summer 2021 🙂

I continue to meet with my tribe of women healers online and in person when possible in New and Full Moon circles, as well as celebrating the spiritual and seasonal celebrations throughout the year. I am extremely grateful to have connected with many sacred leaders, priestesses, shamans, lightworkers, healers, devas and goddesses in masterclass summits, workshops and gatherings over the years. As we have gone through these unprecedented Covid years, more than ever we need to tap out of the fear and into the flow of love and energetic balance. I look forward to meeting you and working with all you beautiful humans in Crystal Garden Healing Space. I believe that we can heal ourselves and that healers are facets to move energy through from the divine source and flow into the human form of the body, mind, and spirit.

With love, spirit and crystalline blessings, Monika
