Have spiritual and energetic questions? Interrupted in your training because of Covid or the economy?
Stonewisdom has been receiving mentoring requests. As a result, we are once again accepting students for mentoring.

We at Stonewisdom offer specialty “sessions” to mentor the serious practitioner, students and perspective students or those who are “awakening” and simply have questions. This format is individualized and cost effective.

The sessions are in ½ hour increments and students are asked to keep a journal and keep succinct questions to maximize actual phone or Zoom time with us.

How it Works: Per session fee in $55 a half hour. Prepaid package rates are available @ 4 sessions for $200 or $50 per session. You decide when you are ready to “meet” with us. Your questions are submitted by email in advance so we may “track” and be prepared to keep your paid time to a minimum. This is an effective and quick way to gain good spiritual growth and perception with a short term investment. Subject matters outside the scope of our book or regular classes are welcome.

Please send an email to stonewisdom555@yahoo.com to inquire. A limited number of positions are open. This is a specialized service we offer and we reserve the right to refuse a student and/or limit the number of people being mentored at any one time.

Classes Overview

Stonewisdom invites everyone who is struggling within or without to join us for this life-altering event. Our personal journeys in this World are a Spiritual walk. This is not a religious class, but a “how to” successfully engage with yourself, loved ones, business and the world at random. Come learn our best suggestions for innovative, masterful and healthy living.

You will experience self-empowerment methods that will be immediately “game-changing” in your life. Enjoy Cosmic and karmic clearing. Integrate as the masterful True Self you were always meant to be. Help create a new tribe of heart-connected friendships and like-minded people. This is not a shamanic training but does incorporate some wisdom teachings.

Class Testimonials

I thoroughly enjoyed the Level 1 Class with Stonewisdom! Ellen and Thane have been at this for quite some time, and they shared many useful practices that I could incorporate into my daily life. The work done during the class has led to shifts in relationships, career goals, and my connection with the land. I have noticed an increase in clients coming in for my freelance business as well. I highly recommend Stonewisdom classes, as well as their private sessions. I have found that I’m seeing more signs supporting the idea that I’m on the right path since being in the class. I am really looking forward to Level 2!
