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. Please do add Emma Reiki King and Margaret West to your facebook/twitter friends list to keep up to date with all the workshops and news. We promise not to bother you unless you contact us first for information.

Crystal Power

I went to church last night and our regular closed circle turned into a physical circle. The number attending were low, so we decided to do something different. It was a wonderful evening full of laughter and suprises. The question I ask, is everything really random? Things happen for a reason. I’m not talking about the bad stuff here. I’m talking about random events that take you down different pathways. I never thought I’d ever go to a spiritualist church. The thought I might see dead people scared the living daylights out of me. Yet, through a chain of events, I found myself regularly attending open circles. A place where you learn about spirit. Suddenly I wasn’t so afraid anymore. So fear is based on the unknown. As humans what we don’t understand, we fear.
Crystals. Some see them as pretty objects to be admired, while others see them as working tools. As a doctor see’s his stethoscope, a surgeon his scalpel. Do they have the power to heal? Huge ones are found below the earth. But did they grow randomly or are they the earth’s life force. A type of natural energy boost, which keeps the planet from falling to pieces.

I’d like your views on crystals. Have you used them. Would you?
