AS SEEN IN
People have tried every possible outlet to escape.
They've seen every doctor, taken every treatment, hired every coach and shown up at
every yoga class, but an “escape” isn’t the solution when you're in pursuit of
inner peace, connectedness, and clarity.
You do not escape yourself, you turn into yourself.
Many of the industries designed to act as “helping” agents within spiritual practices, healthcare, and wellness-based fields are in dire need of reconstruction. Many providers and practitioners have continued to implement concepts that aren’t effectively serving clients.
Many uphold these constructs out of tradition and unfortunately, no one wins in this scenario. Clients aren’t receiving sustainable guidance and practitioners aren’t successfully fulfilling their commitment to providing useful tools and solutions.
People want to be heard.
People want to connect.
People want to heal.
Crystal Jones is a quiet POWERHOUSE!
The depth and breadth of her impact on the human spirit reverberates from one being into our community. Her demeanor allows you to feel safe and drop your guard so her words can penetrate lovingly into your soul. The shift happens without you even knowing except that you wake up one day and are present enough to notice that you changed for the better."
Hey! I'm Crystal
I am and I move through this world in a very queer way. I serve as a spiritual director and a sound therapist -a witness- committed to being with people who desire to sit with and allow that which desires to emerge from within - even when it feels like the valley of shadow of death.
I believe in the truth of lived experiences with a special emphasis on black queer folx. Many of our systems are sustained under the disempowering narrative of people being broken and needing to be fixed, which creates separation from self and a disconnection from the Source.
I anchor the depth of presence in a dynamic way through sound and I witness folks breathe into themselves and influence more self-awareness and confidence as they begin to advocate from their embodied presence using accessible tools to evolve as desired.
As well, I anchor global conversations that ignite critical thinking around the impact of unconscious bias in healthcare, wellness, and religion through workshops, seminars, guest lectures, and trainings.
Ways To Work With Me
Conferences + Workshops
Simply put, I anchor spaces into the power of presence and allow the space for sustainable shift to emerge. Industry keynotes, sound healing immersions, guest lectures, fireside chats, meditation + more are all anchored in radical presence to meet the needs of humans and companies that desire to co-create an experience of consciously leaning into the disruption of new life. The work has a special emphasis on creating spaces that affirm race and gender identity. Other topics include healthcare practices within the black QT community, grief, internalized anti-blackness, healing as a Whole person, spiritual bypass in the conscious community, mindfulness + feel free to pitch your topic of choice.
Corporate Consulting + Unconcious Bias Immersions
For healthcare practices, wellness studios, conferences, conventions, churches, etc. How affirming is your company? Many companies work on diversity and inclusion but fail to do the internal work of acknowledging biases and exclusion of marginalized people. This isn't just a 30 minute general class on how to include people, we get to the core of expansive shift - YOU. We explore this through the gift curiosity and conscious communication. This work can be done as an intensive or in retreat format. Interested? Let's talk more. We are in this together.
This is an organic relationship that offers support in many ways through the transitions of life inclusive of birth, relationship evolution, spiritual unions, career, and death. We commit, together, to expansion through these life transitions using the spiritual practices of radical vulnerability, presence, and allowance. Our initial commitment is three months and often expands as life unfolds. Schedule a 30-minute consultation to see if this is in alignment with your values and capacity.
Sound Therapy Session
(Virtual) This session offers the collaborative space for your voice to move freely through you followed by the invitation to shift from a place of still power. This immersion through vocal toning meditation, crystal bowls and coaching gives you space to allow your voice to relax, release, and offer integration to your nervous system. Deep rest follows and then a debrief as we offer the invitation to shift. This is purely a meditation and shift session. Will you allow yourself to be held?
