welcome to the HOME PAGE of
the "school OF INNER LIGHT"!
School of Inner Light logo © 2009
We founded the 'School of Inner Light' in 2002, in order to offer training courses and workshops that will promote and enhance personal growth and spiritual development - primarily utilising crystals, reiki / subtle energies, and/or visualisations and guided journeys in meditation. Our home base is now in Wales (see below), but we are also happy to travel anywhere in the UK to teach, if there is sufficient interest. Our NEWSLETTER page on this site will keep you updated with what we are doing (and teaching) currently.
As crystals and their energies are so integral to many of our workshops, you also may be interested to know that we sell top-quality hand-selected crystals through our ON-LINE SHOP, which may be found at www.innerlightcrystals.co.uk. This has detailed descriptions, photographs and prices of everything we sell (over 1000 items), along with lots of information about their properties and uses.
PLEASE BE ADVISED:
In September 2018 the School of Inner Light moved to Ceredigion (Cardiganshire). Our new home is on the edge of a small village a few miles away from the county town of Cardigan on the west coast of Wales; and, although we expect to take a while to complete some building work and get fully settled into our new home, we hope to be ready and able to offer our full range of courses and workshops from the start of 2021. If you live in the south or west of Wales (or are happy to travel to us) and are interested in attending any of the learning experiences we have to offer, please email us stating your name, postal address and contact phone number along with the name of the workshop / course(s) you would be interested in attending, and we will do our best to put together a teaching schedule based around need and availability.
This website tells you all about us and the courses and workshops we are able to teach. Some are 1 or 2 year attended study courses; some are shorter workshops and study courses from 1 - 5 days duration. Any of these offer a CPD, if you need one.

HEALING AND ENERGY WORK - PROFESSIONAL PRACTITIONER
|We first developed this unique Crystal Healing and Energy Work Diploma course (see syllabus) in 2003, combining crystal healing/therapy with Reiki and other advanced Energy work/practise. It is a two-year part-time Professional Practitioner course that includes 27+ days attended teaching sessions (see modules) spread over approximately a two year period. We prefer to run this course on a flexible basis with a small intake of students that will ensure each attendee receives a great deal of personal attention and individual coaching. Classes are usually taught on an academic and intuitive level by Hilary with support and input on an energetic / subtle level provided by Mark. All modules are held in a safe and energetically supported environment. This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in working in depth with crystals and in the advanced field of Vibrational Therapies, and who wishes to be able to practise as a therapist to a high standard that will enable them to join a professional body and hold professional indemnity insurance.|
|Angelic Multidimensional Healing Professional Practitioner Training is offered in 4 complete stages: stages 1 & 2 (Professional Practitioner) over 3 days; stage 3 (Master Practitioner) over 3 days; stage 4 (Master Teacher) over 3 additional days; and stage 5 (Teaching Master) 2 days (home study). Throughout each stage of the complete course you will form a sacred bond with a specific Angel (or in some cases Angels) who will join with you for all your AMD healing and/or teaching work. The complete course will provide a great opportunity for you to advance your own personal growth and self-healing and understanding. It also offers an amazingly effective tool to enable you to connect and work closely with any of the Angels and Archangels, Ascended and Galactic Masters you choose. This is a truly life-enhancing training, whether you use it simply for your own development, healing and growth or for the benefit others.|
|This Angelic Multidimensional Healing 2-day short course is specifically aimed at those who would like to be attuned into the basic system in order to work with the Realms of the Angelics for their own personal healing and growth, but who might not wish to take the more intensive training (see above) that would qualify them to become a Professional AMD Practitioner and/or Teacher and use AMD with others. On this short course you will receive an attunement that will open and align your healing channels and create a sacred bond with a specific Angel who will join with you to aid and support your self-healing and personal growth and self-understanding from that point forwards. It offers an amazingly simple yet effective tool to enable you to connect and work closely with any of the Angels and Archangels, and teaches you a simple non-contact Healing technique that you can use with family, friends and pets.|
|Reiki is an excellent starting
point for anybody who is interested in developing their
understanding of the subtle world of healing, energy and spirit by
learning a hands-on healing system that can be used to aid and
personal healing and growth for themselves and (if you choose to
become a Professional Practitioner) for others. In just 2 days
you can be attuned to the Reiki energies and learn how to start using
them safely and competently for yourself, family or friends as a Reiki
You may then choose to advance in stages to Reiki 2 Professional Practitioner level (2 more days training); Master Practitioner level (1 more days training); and finally to Master Teacher level (2 more days training) if you are drawn to share your experience and skills with others.
NOTE: three additional entry / advanced level workshops are also available to help you enhance and extend your Reiki practise (see below)
REIKI PRACTITIONER WORKSHOP:
We have chosen to share our many years of experience as full-time
complementary therapists and teachers with others by offering a 1 day
workshop for anyone who is qualified to at least Reiki 2 level, who
wishes to establish their own Reiki Practice.
REIKI PRACTITIONER WORKSHOP:
We have chosen to share our many years of experience as practicing
Reiki practitioners and therapists (and clairvoyants) with others by
offering a 1 day workshop for anyone currently working as a Professional
Reiki Practitioner who wishes to learn some additional useful techniques
and extend their working knowledge of "hands-on" Reiki. You
will need to have attained and assimilated Reiki 2 (Practitioner level)
as a minimum.
REIKI MASTER PRACTITIONER WORKSHOP:
We have chosen to share our many years of experience as practicing
Reiki practitioners and therapists with others by offering a 2 day workshop
for anyone who has been working for some time as a Professional Reiki
Practitioner. You will ideally need to have attained and assimilated
Reiki level 3 (Master Practitioner) as a minimum, and be working regularly
and intuitively with Reiki and/or other energy therapies.
|We offer Healing Shares for all our Reiki and AMD students
on a regular basis.
Attendance is FREE, although donations to help cover refreshments costs are welcomed.
Details of dates currently in our diary will be found on our Calender at a Glance page.
2) Courses for Personal Growth and Spiritual Development that can be added into our schedule upon request:
NB: If you are interested in attending the Ascension Course please contact us giving your name, postal address and phone number and a current e-mail address. We will then place you on our waiting list - we need a minimum of 6 students to be able to run this course.
WALKING WITH ARCHANGELS -
|This is an Angelically-led 'course' that may be followed by
It comprises a hardback book (costing £25, plus delivery), which has been specifically written to Guide the reader through a profound programme of self-led and self-supported work, which is designed to aid and support them on their path to Enlightenment and towards their personal Ascension.
It may be worked upon alone, or with others - perhaps in a gathering of like-minded people who are willing and able to attend regularly held monthly meetings. Ideally these should be led by a person who is already used to running workshops or groups, and who is capable of being energetically aware of the needs of both themselves and the other people in the gathering, all of whom will be working deeply on their self-healing and growth. Even so, the book is complete in itself, and if you choose (or can only) work alone, it needs nothing more than your own willingness to follow and immerse yourself in the Guidance given within its pages - and a pen and a notebook to record your experiences.
|This Ascension Course
was first developed in 2008 and taught to 3 groups of Lightworkers
in the run-up to 2012: yet over the last
6 years its energies have been refined and amplified far beyond
where they first started. Hence, this course will lead you
to work deeply and intensely with your Lotus of the Heart and Lotus
of the Soul, gradually clearing and expanding your energies and connecting
you to the Highest Rays of the Diamond Light, and aiding and
supporting you in connecting
with your 5th Dimensional Light Body - and accepting your potential for
Personal Ascension. It is presented under the Guidance of
Archangelic, Ascended and Cosmic Masters through a series of
teachings that include profound guided visualisations and
journeying, supported by comprehensive handouts whereby you are
introduced to a range of tools and techniques that will help you
develop and clarify your 4th and 5th Dimensional Unified Light Body.
In all the course comprises 22 x 1-day sessions run over a 30 month period.
(To find out more about Ascension and to read about the Rays and the Lotuses of the Heart and Soul go to our Lightworkers website (www.innerlightworkers.co.uk) and look under the heading "Ascension: Personal".)
NB: We accept people on this fast-track course at ANY current level of metaphysical understanding, as long as they are fully committed to the processes involved - and willing to accept the profound changes these might bring.
3) 2 DAY / 4 DAY WORKSHOPS WE COULD BRING to ANY UK LOCATION:

CRYSTAL JOURNEYS WITH THE ASCENDED MASTERS:
|Our 2 or 4 day Ascended Master workshop gives you the opportunity to meet and work with some of the 24 Ascended
Masters who are part of our teaching set. You will do this through journeying
and visualisation, supported and enhanced by special crystal energy
grids. These grids are gifts channelled to Mark by each Ascended Master
that bring with them particular vibrational energies that can work on
many aspects of your growth and development.
The workshop will help you become more aware of Ascended Master energies and be open to receive their gifts, wisdom, love and guidance: each section has a theme within which each group of Masters asks to work with you, covering Working with aspects of Balance; Working with the Heart Centre; Working to Cleanse, Transform and Transmute Negativity; and Preparing for Moving to the Next Dimensions.
CRYSTAL JOURNEYS WITH THE ELEMENTALS:
|Our 2 day Elementals workshop gives you the opportunity to meet and work with the Elementals. You will do this using crystal grids and guided visualisations, and by journeying within. It will introduce you to the Directors of the Elementals and to the delightful Beings who work with the elements of earth, air, fire and water - the gnomes, sylphs, salamanders and undines. They all have a great deal to teach you and much support to offer in your daily lives, as well as being there for input, help and guidance about healing and balancing all of the natural elements in, upon and surrounding our planet, Earth. The workshop will also aim to explain how and why the elements and the Elementals function as they do, and will connect you with the Directors of the Elementals themselves - Pelleur and Prosperina; Aries and Thor; Neptune and Luara and Oromasis and Diana.|
CRYSTAL JOURNEYS TO ANCIENT EGYPT
|Our 2 or 4 day
Archetypes of Ancient Egypt workshop introduces you to some
of the 22 Gods, Goddesses and Archetypal energies of Ancient Egypt that
have stepped forwards to offer their support for the purposes of the
workshop. Each day will include journeying and visualisation with the
assistance of crystal grids composed specifically for the purposes of
the workshop; and may be especially helpful for those who have had Egyptian
past-lives or who work with Egyptian Guides.
Each section has a theme within which each group of Archetypes asks to work with you, covering Preparation and Planning; Clearing and Balance; Knowledge through Introspection; and Initiation and Change.
CRYSTAL JOURNEYS TO THE STARS
|Our 2 or 4 day Celestial Journeys workshop uses visualisations and crystal templates to help you experience the energies of some of the stars and star systems within our Galaxy - many of which can be seen in our night skies. Each template is a gift from the Cosmic and Galactic Masters of our Solar System and Galaxy, bringing specific vibrational energies that will work on many aspects of your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual Selves. They will also strengthen your connection to the network of help and support available from our brothers and sisters of the Stars, especially now stargates have been opened to permit us to have much closer contact with our Galactic Allies. Each section has a theme within which each group wants to work: Balancing, Healing and Grounding; Taking Healing and Balance Further; Finding Your Path Forwards; and Grounding Clarity to Enhance Understanding.|

The Dragon Master, NagaChohan, and with archetypal Dragon energy under
the guidance of the Dragons of the Rainbow Realm, is currently under
construction. It is anticipated that the workshop will include working
with our Crystal Dragon Skulls to help you understand more about the
concept of Light and its administration in the process of Co-creation
and manifestation, and about the nature of our Divine Selves, through
the frequencies of Black and White Light and an understanding of the
nature of the "Pearl Beyond Price".
(Web-page still in development - no links yet available)
THE LOTUS OF THE HEART
|The Lotus of the Heart workshop will work with four pairs of Archangelic twin-flames through a series of Guided Visualisations.

5) other WORKSHOPS AND COURSES - NOT CURRENTLY SCHEDULED:
Unfortunately our diary and our other commitments do not currently allow time
to teach or offer ALL the courses and workshops we have developed over the
years. However, the table below details other workshops that we could
schedule upon request - time and space permitting.
If you are interested in any of them please contact us telling us which you are interested in, and give your name, address and phone number and a current e-mail address. We will then file your request and notify you as soon as we have sufficient interest to schedule it (we need a minimum of 4 students per course / workshop).
AN INTRODUCTION TO CRYSTAL HEALING:
|This will be a busy and very full introductory Crystal Healing workshop, demonstrating how to choose and look after gemstones and crystals, and to start to work with them in a responsible fashion. It will provide a condensed introduction to the concept of working with colour, vibrational tools and subtle energy and will outline how our physical and non-physical bodies (i.e. the chakras and subtle auric layers) are all connected. There will be plenty of hands on practical work involved, and you will learn how to perform a simple crystal healing treatment with four different components - for yourself, family or friends. A basic crystal "starter pack" will be included in the fee.|
WORKING WITH CRYSTALS AND THE CHAKRAS:
|This short Crystals and Energy-Work workshop is aimed at those who already know the correct methods of looking after crystals, and who have started to work with them with confidence. You will need to already understand the basic concept of the aura, the chakras and the subtle body systems, and be able to work with a dowsing pendulum. The 8 session workshop will provide in-depth information about the 7 major linear chakras, and show how to work with them in a healing situation using crystals and crystal templates. It is a useful follow on to the introductory workshop (above) but attendance on that workshop is not a requirement if you already have the skills outlined above. This workshop may well also interest those who have already acquired a basic working knowledge of crystals and who work in other fields of "energy work" where a deeper understanding of the chakras would be useful.|
THE MANY FACES OF QUARTZ:
|This short "Intuitive" workshop is aimed at those who are already comfortable working with quartz in healing and self-development situations. The 6 session workshop will explore many types and forms of the wonderful quartz family from all around the world and show how to recognise these on a practical and energetic level, encouraging intuitive recognition and exploration. If you have some intuitive skills and want to develop these in interaction with crystals, then this workshop may appeal to you. It is not necessary to have attended the other two workshops shown above, and not everyone will have the interest or abilities that will be appropriate for the workshop: it is, in fact, more aimed towards personal development / information gathering rather than for using directly in a healing situation.|
COMMUNICATING WITH CRYSTALS:
|This "intuitive" Crystal workshop will give you the opportunity to experience the energies of some common, rare and unusual crystals both large and small. Whether you work with our large quartz Master crystals or with our tiny Satyaloka quartz points, you will learn that size does not really matter! You may also have the opportunity to hold and explore some of the more unusual crystals and minerals we stock, and find out what truly resonates with you - and perhaps why! Using visualisation, journeying and free writing the day will aim to help you expand your senses to enable you to listen to the stories and advice that the crystals have to give, and understand how to work in loving partnership and be able to communicate with all our crystal friends.|
ENERGY (PSYCHIC) PROTECTION AND SUPPORT:
|If you work in any kind of healing or caring profession, or meet or mix with a wide range of people during your daily life, it would be of benefit to you to learn a little about how to take care of your energy field and system (aura and chakras). We have found that it is also of vital importance that all Light Workers and healers understand the need for effective energy protection in their daily and working lives. Too many are open to energies they would be better off without! This workshop introduces you to the whys and wherefores of energy protection - what it is, why it is needed and how you may do it. It will suggest, demonstrate and teach some effective cleansing and clearing routines plus show you techniques for cleansing and protecting both your Self and your home and work place.|
CRYSTAL JOURNEYS WITH THE ASCENDED MASTERS:
|Our Ascended Master workshop gives you the opportunity to meet and work with some of the 24 Ascended Masters who are part of our teaching set. You will do this through journeying and visualisation, supported and enhanced by special crystal energy grids. These grids are gifts channelled to Mark by each Ascended Master that bring with them particular vibrational energies that can work on many aspects of your growth and development. The workshop will help you become more aware of Ascended Master energies and be open to receive their gifts, wisdom, love and guidance. Each half-day section has a theme within which each group of Masters asks to work with you. These are: Working with aspects of Balance; Working with the Heart Centre; Working to Cleanse, Transform and Transmute Negativity; and Preparations for Moving to the Next Dimensions.|
CRYSTAL JOURNEYS WITH THE ELEMENTALS:
|Our Elementals workshop gives you the opportunity to meet and work with the Elementals. You will do this using crystal grids and guided visualisations, and by journeying within. It will introduce you to the Directors of the Elementals and to the delightful Beings who work with the elements of earth, air, fire and water - the gnomes, sylphs, salamanders and undines.

CRYSTAL JOURNEYS TO ANCIENT EGYPT:
|On this 2-day (or 4-day) Archetypes of Ancient Egypt workshop you will be working with some of the 22 Gods, Goddesses and Archetypal energies of Ancient Egypt that have stepped forwards to offer their support for the purposes of the workshop. The days will include journeying and visualisation with the assistance of crystal grids composed specifically for the purposes of the workshop. It will be especially helpful for those who have had Egyptian past-lives or who work with Egyptian guides. Interestingly we are also finding many of these Archetypal energies coming forwards to assist with our Ascension teachings at this time. Each half-day (or day) section has a theme within which each group of Archetypes asks to work with you. These are: Preparation and Planning; Clearing and Balance; Knowledge through Introspection; and Initiation and Change.|
CRYSTAL JOURNEYS TO THE STARS:
|Using visualisations and crystal templates our Celestial Journeys workshop helps you experience celestial energies from stars and star systems within our galaxy, many well-known and recognisable in our skies at night. These are gifts from the Cosmos and the Ascended Masters of our Solar System which bring particular vibrational energies that will work on many aspects of your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual Selves. They will also strengthen your connection to the network of help and support available from our brothers and sisters of the Stars, especially now the gates have been opened to permit us to have much closer contact and liaise with our Starry Allies. Each section (half-day) will have a theme within which each group wants to work: Balancing, Healing and Grounding; Taking Healing and Balance Further; Finding Your Path Forwards; and Grounding Clarity to Enhance Understanding.|
"It is our responsibility to point out that our work as teachers, facilitators and therapists is a personal expression of our Spiritual beliefs and practices and presents our interpretation of the knowledge and understanding we have gained through studying various complementary therapies over many years. Our workshops, courses and talks offer an opportunity to share our personal experience with others and to facilitate the possibility for individuals working with us to recognise their own potential on their very personal journey. Any advice or guidance we give through our teaching, therapy or personal interaction with individuals should be followed only if an individual chooses to do so of their own free will and we acknowledge and honour each person's right to discern if they wish to embrace within their lives the things we offer, or not. We charge only for our time, venue facilities and the preparation of any materials used during the sessions." Hilary and Mark; 8/7/2008.
