Earthkeeper Water Protector Ceremonies Practices for Healing Water, Earth and Air 

Sat.  July 16, Sun. Aug. 7, Sat. Sept. 17,  1:30pm - 5 pm

Radiation  released by the recent earthquakes  and  tsunamis  threaten to kill  all wildlife in the Pacific and  our food sources. Pollution is rampant everywhere. Windstorms and floods continue to grow. Mother Earth reacts as a conscious being to our prayers, songs, intent and thoughts!!!! Let us help as gifted healers, prayer makers, alchemists and/or  shamanic practitioners to reduce and remedy this situation. This Earthkeeper Achemy has been a mission of the Amethyst Center for 20 years!

We are part of a worldwide community of drumming ceremonialists , the Water Protectors,  who join together for healing Mother Earth. Within  two weeks 35,000 people gathered globally for this cause recently.

Often we have sound therapists  join us with singing bowls, gongs, rainsticks. We sing a song related to our Earthkeeping Mission and freeform sound therapy.  Our missions may include sovereignty,  freedom, compassion, healing, peace, and unity. Most ceremonies are in our sacred ceremonial circle. But if it rains we meet in the Barn Healing Sanctuary. A potluck follows.

 The Chief Angels of Healing, the White Light Masters, The Eco-dragons, the Beneficial Star Nations, the Forest People and the Spirit in Nature work with us to divert and lessen  ecological  disasters and return Mother Earth to a higher and healthier form moving up to 5D reality. 

Sometimes ....On the Serpent Mound Effigy rug we set our intent for personal and planetary healing. We lock into the 90 point Worldwide Amethyst Biogrid for the transmutation of personal and planetary toxins and for ascending higher conscious spiritual evolution of all our relations. We journey to our Heart Soul Center and become one with the Divine.  We call in the Ecodragons to alchemically transmute Earth's toxins! Then we reprogram the matrix to Love, Divine Consciousness and put on our Rainbow Bodies of ascension!!! Join us in one of our very special eco-shamanism ceremony. Prayer changes things!

LINDA KIRBY, The Amethyst Center, 4443 Quarterwood Rd., Thaxton VA 24174


During the 7 years I apprenticed with Wanda Joy in the XAT Native American Medicine Society I also assisted Herb Doctor,  Walt Medicine Bear in ceremony and in some private healings. Walt's Cherokee Heritage Herb Co. made tonics which he sold worldwide. Although I took many classes and herb walks with him,  I learned the most hanging out and listening in to his consultations with clients. 

Walt Medicine Bear and I once shared a client who had cut his foot off in a carwreck and had it sewn back on!!! Doctors didn't really give the guy much chance of recovering his ability to walk. The Spirit Docs and I did shamanic healing several times for the guy clearing and reconnecting the traumatized energy of the foot and his leg and reconnecting the neural pathway. Then in a dream a Spirit Medicine Woman, who I believe was a Plant Spirit Medicine Woman, told the client to take his shoes off and walk barefooted every day! That orgone Earth energy really did him good!!  Thankfully he showed a lot of progress. And he was strong in his prayers for healing. By that time I was really hooked on how Plant Spirit Medicine works.

Walt very effectively cleared the massive infection on the sewn back foot with oral goldenseal  medicine and poultices of goldenseal.  He healed the wound with comfrey salve! Amazingly the man healed and walked again! I learned that healing must happen in each quadrant of the medicine wheel.... Spiritual, Emotional, Physical and Mental...   to be effective. And this was certainly how this case was cured. 

After that I took many classes with top herbal teachers and hung out with herb medicine people whenever I could to learn their methods. I focused on self study and experimentation on myself. Which I still do. But mostly,  I talk to plants

I became friends with Walt Medicine Bears apprentice who was a nurse and we began teaching herb doctoring classes in Nashville after his transition. My specialty has always been the shamanic side of plant and herb spirit medicine with others doing the medical portion. I adore communicating with herbs and accessing their healing through spiritual contact.

In my 40 years of teaching Practical Shamanism and Nature Spirit Energy Medicine. I have taught Herb Doctoring at the Carilion Jefferson College of Health and at many Body Mind Spirit Expos. I have taught Plant Spirit Medicine at the Friends of Great Serpent Mound Summer Solstice Festival in OH, at the Friends of the Living Desert Museum in NM along side of Apache Medicine People and at the Amethyst  Center. I've also taught at Unity Churches and at various healing centers in the South, Midwest and East. I believe that we must remain sovereign in our health. Self care with herbs may be our best bet to survive and thrive!

Drum Making and Sound Therapy July 2 and Oct. 1

Drum Making and Sound Therapy 

Sat. July 2 and Oct. 1

Make your own drum, awaken it as a healing tool, and learn rhythms and healing techniques for healing yourself and Mother Earth. 

Experience the satisfaction of crafting your own instrument from a Shamanic teacher with 25 years experience in drum making and sound therapy drumming. Hundreds now enjoy Tree of Life Drums. Our drums are very resonating and stay tuned much longer than others in humid weather. Women can make these drums easily as the design requires more craftsmanship than strength. In the Sound Therapy Drumming workshop you will learn advanced drumming healing techniques and learn how to use a variety of drum beats in your practice. You will experience a powerful combination of drumming with chanting, energy medicine, sacred geometry, shamanic journey and meditation. Awaken your drum as an instrument of healing in sacred ceremony!

Azurae is a member of the American Women’s Indigenous Drum Society and the Red Feather Medicine Singers. Her drum has traveled to many American Indian Ceremonies and has been infused with their power and healing.  A very special part of the workshop is to have your drum initiated by Azuraes's Drum in the Angel Meditation Garden in the sacred spiral. Thus your drum carries a legacy of drumming and ceremony from many times, dimensions and places. 

It’s a sound time to be initiated into the Amethyst Center Earthkeeper Drumming Nation and join in Ceremonies for Water Protection! You'll experience the power and good medicine of your drum in your own meditations, shamanic journeys, singing and celebrations!

Practical Shamanism Empaths Self Care June 26 - Trauma Clearing, Soul Retrieval, Solar Plexus Healing, Clearing, Shielding

Practical Shamanism Self Care  for Empaths - Clearing Trauma, Solar Plexus Healing. Shielding, Soul Retrieval and Chord Cutting  June 26 

As a sensitive empathic person you feel deeply the energetic environment. with the techniques available in Practical Shamanism for Empaths you can clear the overload of toxic energy you feel, clear it out, cut non beneficial chords to people, places and events which trigger symptoms and shield yourself alchemically. The result is a healthier you! The influx of ultra high frequency energy coming into Mother Earth and our bodies from Solar Storm events and Galactic Downloads is dislodging trauma held within the Earth and within yourself. This causes a variety of physical symptoms.  Allopathic medicine cannot address these properly.  In my model of Medicine Wheel Healing I address Spiritual, Emotional, Physical and  Mental underlying causes of ill health and imbalance. TAKE TIME FOR YOUR OWN HEALING IN YOUR SOUL, EMOTIONAL BODY AND IN PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS NOW!!!

Empaths Solar Plexus Clearing & Healing

Sunday, June 26

Empaths work from the solar plexus to feel information intuitively.  They often download lots of toxic energies in the course of reading their incoming messages from people, events and the world. Certainly in this challenging time we must put our empathic skills to good use. AND NOW is the perfect time to clear all that nasty heavy non beneficial stuck energy in the solar plexus!!!!  In this workshop we will clear the solar plexus and you will learn how to use this technique at any time you need to clear your overworked toxic solar plexus. 

THE BENEFIT? A clear solar plexus gives you clarity and the messages you receive will be more on target. Clearing the solar plexus also reduces anxiety, clears stress,  reduces allergies and brings emotional balance.  You will learn to discern what are your true feelings instead of locking into those of other people. We will also learn to cut non-beneficial chords to people, places and events that seek to manipulate us and drain our lifeforce energies!!!! The workshop also includes material from May 1's workshop so that we can continue the healing cycle and also master through repetition the Practical Shamanic techniques we use to fill our Shaman's Toolbox!

THE COURSE - In this 6 part series YOU discover and experience: 

The objective in this 6 part series is to clear the heavy energy and trauma that lowers your frequency, creates ascension symptoms and hinders your progress into 5D ascension. To this end we repeat the core techniques of Practical Shamanism of Powering up, Earth Sun Circular Breathing, Golden Egg Shielding and Intuition building Shamanic Journey in each workshop so you can begin any time. Then we practice trauma clearing through neurolinguistic programming and angelic shamanic intervention so you can uplift your well being and move forward your consciousness potential. We open up the closed root chakra where much trauma is stored to increase your lifeforce flow. We retrieve lost soul parts so that you are healthier and more whole. And finally we retrieve a joy guide to help in returning to a state of happiness.

ROOT CHAKRA CLEARING - One of the most pressing needs by clients is clearing of the Root Chakra. The Root is our grounding, holder of traumas, shelter and survival instincts, sexual and abandonment issues and feeds the solar plexus and sacral with Earth Lifeforce Energy.  A  blocked Root Chakra is very impactful for total health and the ability to climb the ascension ladder. And right now, this condition is pervasive! In the last two months only two people out of 25 clients were free of Root Chakra issues. I believe  this is due to the high frequencies pushing out of our own traumas, the fear of death of war and covid issues and the trauma held in the Earth that we are accessing through our roots! ITS TIME TO GET CLEAR AND POWER UP! So we will check all participants for this and clear the root chakra.

RECOVERY OF SOUL LOSS - Although soul loss is a survival mechanism, the problem, from a shamanic point of view, is that the soul part that left usually does not come back on its own. The soul might be lost, or stolen by another person, or doesn’t know the trauma has passed and it is safe to return.  It has always been the role of the shaman to go into an altered state of consciousness and track down where the soul fled to in the alternate realities and return it to the body of the client.

There are many common symptoms of soul loss. One of the more common ones is dissociation, in which a person does not feel fully in their body, alive, and engaged with life. Other symptoms include chronic depression, suicidal tendencies, post-traumatic stress syndrome, immune deficiency problems, and grief that just does not heal. Addictions are also a sign of soul loss, as we seek external sources to fill up the empty spaces inside of us, whether through substances, food, relationships, work, or buying material objects. Retrieving lost soul parts is perhaps the most important, healing and helpful shamanic technique you can experience!

Nonbeneficial Chord Cutting

All of us have energetic chords connected to people, places, things and situations. Some are beneficial. Many are not. Nonbeneficial chords drain our lifeforce and may manipulate our consciousness. Thus clearing these chords leave the clients feeling free, more in charge of their life situations and much lighte


We start out the trauma clearing session with the White Light Master Attunement for Embracing your Divine Perfect Blueprint. We remove trauma stored in your body with the help of Healing Angels and   Neurolinguistic Programming and replace trauma with healthy  lifeforce. It is very gentle and works at a soul and energetic level. This method releases trauma without retraumatizing my students and clients. We can also retrieve lost soul parts caused by trauma.  We mend psychic wounds.   And finally we retrieve a Joy Guide that helps you play, laugh and return to well being!  JOIN US!

The Other Dates in this Series Are Sun. July 24, Aug. 28, Sept. 18, Oct. 23, Nov. 20, Dec. 11
