Last week, I attended “In Sickness and In Health,” a crystal workshop with Kyle Russell, of Crystal Concentrics. It was fantastic, and I’m still feeling the effects of such a positive night! The 3-hour workshop consisted of meditation; informational/intuitive talk and building of a crystal grid; interaction with the crystals; and personal sharing from the participants.
The crystals that Kyle used for the evening were some of the most unusual and beautiful (both physically and energetically) pieces I’ve ever seen and experienced. I was so thrilled that we were able to hold the crystals!
[Side note: I’ve been with some teachers who have been protective of their own personal power tools, being cautious not to let other people touch and “infect” the crystals’ energies. This has never resonated with me.]
At the end of the evening, I meditated with an incredible piece of topaz. I still can recall the sensations and the energy of the topaz. Since that meditation, I have felt calmer, less anxious and more grounded than I have in months – and I’m just a few weeks away from my wedding that I’ve been planning (and that’s been highly stressful)!
Kyle creates a space that is open, respectful and trusting, which allowed me to feel safe while going deep into the sensations, thoughts and feelings that came up through the meditations and through my interactions with the crystals. Kyle is genuine in his practice, a quality that is very important to me when trusting anyone who does intuitive work.
It was a refreshing and healing evening, being like-minded people who were kind and as interested and in-tune with crystals as I feel I am! I will definitely be back!
Experiencing a workshop with Kyle Russell is an incredibly unique and valuable kind of journeying. For all those who seek to fine-tune their energies, or who are also looking to strengthen and support a meditation practice, Kyle offers a safe, intimate, sacred space within which one can do both.
Space is first given for individual conscience to blossom naturally, unhindered by substance or form. Subjects are then explored by introducing the crystals and what they can offer us. The journey begins with guided meditation through the prisms of Self and crystals merging to bring clarity, insights and truths into what is our everyday reality.
Once immersed in this ocean of light, it is easy to see that the crystals too, have stories of their own, and that they weave their way into our lives as gifts of pure energy, strongholds of the elemental forces that make up who we are. They are there to remind us that life is beautiful and magical, and that we are that life. Being in their presence with the sacred gifts of guided meditation creates powerful reflections that help shine light into our souls, into our deepest sense of being.
A crystal journey with Kyle is undoubtedly something you’ll want to come back to as a way to deepen and enrich your experience on Earth.

I wanted to express to you, the wonderful experience I had at your meditation class last week in Arlington, MA. Also all the powerful energy I received from you and your amazing collection of Power Stone Crystals & Artifacts. I love my Apophyllite stone I purchased, it gives me a feeling in my soul, unlike any other feeling I have experienced thus far, it was calling me from the first time I saw it at the meditation (it was mine). I know that as I continue to be part of your ongoing classes, I will feel more energy in my body and soul as I continue my journey. The power/energy I receive from the Apophyllite stone is just the beginning.
In addition, I would like to add that I loved being around like minded people, and hearing feedback from everyone in the class, it gave me an opportunity to get out of my everyday ups and downs of life and this event allowed me to center on myself and do what I need, to heal and ignite my connection to Soul. I am also very excited to book a private session with you; you have such a great energy and kindness about you from the very first time I contacted you on Facebook months ago.
Kyle, you are truly a Genuine Gem!
Filled with Gratitude and Love,

CRYSTAL MEDITATION REVIEW
This was my first meditation with Kyle. I felt that I was in a very safe place, listening to his guided meditation created a quiet and peaceful place for me. I loved this “retreat” and wish the meditation was longer.
When Kyle later went around the room to ask people to share their experiences, I said I didn’t have one, that I felt calm and peaceful. He said, that is an experience! He was right.
I very much look forward to more meditation sessions with Kyle and going deeper into experiences in feeling the energy, getting to a place in my inner being where I may reap insight into my current life situations.

I really enjoyed your meditation class. It was exactly what I needed. I really like to meditate and the with the rocks, it was just so much more advanced and I could meditate even deeper. I would probably be interested in any class and/or meditation. Please let me know what you are planning and where. I will probably be around that week.
I just recently had the pleasure of attending one of Kyle’s Crystal Meditation classes. I was very uncertain as to what we were going to do, but arrived with an open mind.
Kyle had displayed a large collection of his crystals to look through and hold as people arrived. The collection was very impressive, and gave everyone a chance to talk to each other and learn a little about each person’s knowledge and experience with crystals.
When the class began we all sat in a circle on the floor around a beautiful Moroccan rug. Kyle passed around a beautiful large Jade crystal ball and explained some of the properties of it. He then formed a pattern with a variety of large crystals in the center of the rug to help focus our energy in meditation.
His passion and knowledge regarding the crystals and their properties was very evident. He facilitated a safe and loving environment, in which all of us felt comfortable to speak freely about our interest in crystals and meditation, and what brought us to this type of event.
We did two short meditations, one in the beginning of our circle and one at the end. We all were given the chance to hold a crystal of our choice during the meditation.
I found the event to be very enjoyable and peaceful. I look forward to attending the next event, and look forward to learning more about crystals and how they can be used to enhance our lives. I would recommend this event to others.

I met Kyle at the Boston Yoga Chant Fest in October. I was really drawn to his stones and crystals. I learned he was offering classes and made a mental note that I wanted to come. I have been doing a lot of traveling in the last half year and none of the events were at a time I was able to come. Last week, Kyle had scheduled an event and I said I am coming! I really didn’t really know exactly what he had planned.
I came to the room and began to meet the other people who had come. I was still feeling a little out of place and not sure what to do but the group really started coming together as if we were all drawn to come here and share with each other on a deep level, each in our own way bringing our own special gifts to the group.
I still can’t explain it, but being in the presence of Kyle with his crystals and stones and the space he created for us to dwell in for a few hours was just a real blessing for me. How can sitting with a ruby make you feel so much better about being alive? It’s a mystery that may never be explained but part of me says just trust it.
“Last week I attended my first Crystal Meditation group meeting, New Beginnings: Opening & Clearing. Going to the event I was certain of two things: there would be crystals and guided meditations. I was not aware of the intensity I would experience as the evening progressed. I was first taken aback by a room full of crystals. Some of the most beautiful, colorful, expensive stones I have ever experienced in my life. Just standing in the room I began vibrating.
There was a chatty meet and greet time provided so the attendees could connect and re-connect. Then the Circle was gathered. Kyle led us through three meditations during the 2 hour meeting; each accompanied by crystals and stones appropriate for the intended visualization. I found myself easily falling into a distant meditative state. By the last meditation I felt a definite shift in my being: I had received messages and felt very different in my body compared to when I walked in off the street.
Kyle provides a wonderful calm space free from distraction, enlivened with the vibration (songs) of a diverse rich collection of gem stones and crystals. Kyle is a Crystalline Being in flesh.” – Lugh Giacomozzi
CRYSTAL BUYER REVIEWS
I highly recommend purchasing crystals and stones from Kyle Russell. I am always wary of purchasing crystals online. I had seen several posts on Facebook of available crystals offered by Kyle/Power Stones and decided to dive in. I contacted Kyle about about a Prase Cathedral Quartz and concluded our transaction by purchasing the Quartz as well as two exquisite Amethyst pieces. Kyle answered my inquires immediately, sent photos of each stone as well as measurements. And, I received my purchase within three days!!!

INDIVIDUAL SESSION REVIEWS
Kyle’s work in an individual session was a profoundly moving and harmonizing experience. He introduced several beautiful crystals and stones to take me on deeply conscious journey that illuminated and helped to clear various life issues. Kyle’s success with this work comes from his masterful understanding of the stones he uses and his skill in making them accessible to his clients while never sacrificing the depth of the process.

Diana D.: “Yes, all came through fine. Your passion was displayed exquisitely!”
EVENT/CONFERENCE HOST REVIEW
The 2013 Celebration of Reiki Conference was so fortunate to have Kyle Russell of Crystal Concentrics among our Vendors. From start to finish, Kyle was easy to work with and consistently ‘on the same page’ as the Conference Planning Committee. It was truly a partnership and a collaboration. The 2013 Conference was our first, but because of people like Kyle Russell, the event far exceeded our expectations.
During the Conference, Kyle excelled at educating and empowering our conference-goers in the properties of crystals, their uses in meditation and healing, as well as their histories and geographical origins. In fact, some conference-goers were so enthralled with Kyle’s approach, that they missed some of the scheduled workshops!
Vendors were required to sign a contract, set up their space in a welcoming and attractive way, and provide an evaluation of their vendor experience at the Conference. We were able to count on Kyle to follow-through gracefully and graciously in all of these endeavors. Kyle put 100% of his efforts into making the conference attendees who browsed his products have truly meaningful and informative experiences.
We will be blessed to have Kyle Russell back with us for the 2014 Celebration of Reiki Conference.
