What we do

Connections With Spirit is owned by Margaret West, a lady of many talents. You can find her website here At Connections with spirit, we offer you training in many different practitioner courses and also many other metaphysical studies. The workshops are designed to not only enlighten you, but also to financially help those she considers are voiceless, with profits from the workshops. Margaret works full time as an alternative Therapist, and this she considers is her income to pay the bills. Profit from the workshops, after paying the facilitators etc, is donated. The prices for our workshops are reasonable and competitive, and we like to think that we give each one our personal touch of beauty and laughter. Cake is always on offer at lunchtimes, as we feel no one should learn without a good slice of cake to fortify them!! We use a few facilitators, who are excellent in their field, but mainly Margaret does all the teaching. So you can be assured that the quality of our courses are always top notch.We also have stalls at the workshops where you can buy beautiful jewellery and Holistic Crystal pendants, which Margaret makes herself. Each pendant is an active crystal that will help with various conditions of the mind, body and spirit.Emma King is Connections with spirit's event manager, events organiser and Personal Assistant to Margaret West. She will be your main port of call for any questions you have or booking details that you may need for any workshops or development circles.

Crystal Energy

Many people look at crystals and see them as ‘pretty’ objects they might like as ornaments. But if you look deeper into their history they were around from the very beginning of the universe. When the ‘Big Bang’ occurred, the vibrations of the stones and crystals began.

The Big Bang theory explains what happened at the very beginning of the universe. Prior to that moment, it's believed there was nothing. Research shows that our universe sprang into existence around 13.7 billion years ago. After its appearance, the universe inflated and expanded. It continues to expand and cool to this day.

We are surrounded by vibrations every day; the universe almost pulsates with energy. Rocks, crystals and every living thing, has its own unique vibration. Hearing, sight and smell are all carried out on a vibration level, so it is very important that we hold our crystals in meditation and acknowledge the great wealth of power they store.

Each crystal structure has its own individual personality, or energy field. The energies of the mineral kingdom are known as ‘Universal Energies’. These energies are activated by interaction and contact from the person holding it. Good intention during the use of crystals stimulates the melding between the user and the structure. This furthers the propagation of love, light and ‘the good of all.’
