Rochana Felde: [00:00:40] Welcome everybody to The Flower Essence podcast. Today, I am so thrilled and excited to introduce a guest to you, Nicholas Pearson, and he is an author of several books on crystals and an upcoming book on flower essences. We want to talk today about gem elixirs and gem essences. And this is just very exciting to me to bring Nicholas on with Kathleen and to walk through some of the ideas presented in his book Crystal Basics, which I am a big fan of, and very excited to introduce you to it.
So Nicholas has been immersed in all aspects of the mineral kingdom for more than 20 years. He began teaching crystal workshops in high school, later studying Mineral Science at Stetson University while pursuing a degree in music. Then, he worked for several years at the Gillespie Museum, home to the largest mineral collection in the southern United States. He’s also a certified Reiki teacher and practitioner. He has classes on crystals, Reiki, and Flower Essences. And his six books include Crystal Basics, Crystals for Karmic Healing, and the forthcoming Flower Essences from the Witch’s Garden. So he lives in Orlando, Florida and was kind enough to join us on the podcast today. Welcome.
Nicholas Pearson: [00:02:10] Thank you so much for having me. I’m really looking forward to today’s episode.
