"Laurelle is one of my favorite teachers and I tell everyone I meet about her. In every one of her classes she has a real way of presenting a whole lot of information in a very short period of time, giving us a well-rounded class but also catering to specific interests and questions of the unique individuals that vary in every gathering. Her intense knowledge base not only comes from years of study but also her personal experiences through her work. This inspired balance comes through in each class because not only are we given the opportunity to hear a true maven speak eloquently about the characteristics of specific stones but then also get the opportunity to have our own inner learning experience by holding and meditating with the stones and then co-sharing with the group. As a student, I always leave with insight, awareness, community, and tools to take home with to further study crystal-wisdom in the unlimited ways that my hearts feel called to. I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to study with someone that so obviously cares deeply about what she does and loves to share that with others. It makes my heart sing and makes learning a true joy!" Elizabeth, Brooklyn

"For many people, their knowledge of astrology starts with knowing their Sun sign and reading newspaper, magazine
and internet horoscopes based solely on the placement of the sun in their charts. This is similar to asking someone
what time it is and hearing either "morning, afternoon, or evening."
A stronger understanding of Astrology aids one in having a fuller understanding of their strengths, their weaknesses, and
their soul's path upon incarnating in this lifetime. Understanding how the planets can influence personal and societal
events helps us to plan our lives in a more energetically efficient way.
To get there, we must understand our natal charts and what signs and houses the planets (and asteroids) were in at the time of our birth. Once we have an archetypal understanding of the signs, the houses, and the planets,
we can see how these energies interplay with our daily lives.
Laurelle's class will help to do just that.
I took this class with her last year (2017). Even though I had a decent understanding of astrology before, it helped to give me a refresher of the fundamentals of astrology & to tie different parts of it together in an easy to comprehend fashion. Whether you are a newcomer to astrology, or you know the basics and just need a refresher, I highly recommend this class to you.”
