Embark on an alchemical

journey with the Earth

and emerge as one of the most well-trained stone medicine practitioners in the world.

Welcoming you to...

Enter the Cave only takes place once a year.

The enrollment period is 7 days only. You're right on time.

See through the eyes of an ancient tradition of stone medicine

and embody a personal shift in consciousness. 

Your experience culminates in a sacred process of becoming a Certified Stone and Crystal Medicine Practitioner.

As polarity mounts at the end of a great cycle, nothing is a guarantee.

You may now be hearing the call to rely more deeply on yourself, finally surrender to the authority of your own heart, and unshakably stand in your own connection with what is Holy. 

It’s time to focus on the things that keep you awake, because you know you have something special - and you really actually do. 

How are you going to cut through the growing distractions and summon up who you are and what you’re here to carry? 

What will be the thing that draws out your power?

To access your strength and bring forward your gifts of service, remember that you're not alone.

You are a part of vast lineages and you matter inside of them. 

Together we’ll summon your ancestors to stand at your back, to face the challenges ahead together, and make you more potent and capable than you ever could be alone.

Does this sound like something better than choosing a simple online crystal course?

It is.

This is a chance to commit to a process that will keep you wide awake. 

The stones stand ready to reflect to you the one true magical tool:

Enter The Cave is the class the stones to be shared through. It reflects Sarah’s high level of cultivation and gifted nature as a spiritual teacher.” 

—S.K. Jewelry Artist

I also now have invaluable insights and information about stones and minerals to help my health, to help others and the earth.”

-- K.R. Healer


“Sarah and the stones created such an inviting, non-judgemental space and I really felt encouraged to open to what I am being called to do.

I love the stone treatments and can see how they work so quickly on several of my clients.”

“This is truly the most magical training.

I've taken other crystal courses, and I learned things, and perhaps they were preparatory, but no comparison to the value of this training.”

The Format of Your Training

Enter The Cave is a 9-Week LIVE Online Training Program

Every Tuesday evening you'll sit down for a 1.25 hour live online lecture with Sarah and your fellow stone medicine students.

In the live lecture, inspiring stories of stone medicine awakenings and revelations from many traditions will be shared. You'll also learn about the ceremonial process for your week ahead, how to open that process with the stones, and take part in a weekly divination.

On Wednesdays, we'll open the vast archives of the stones. You'll have a live materia medica class with Sarah that you can attend. We focus on only 3 stones per week.

Everything is uploaded into your curriculum. You can enjoy any class at any time of the week if you can't attend live.

Your training bridges the best of many worlds. You'll experience:

1. The magic of live lectures

2. The space and self-pacing of recorded lectures

3. Archives of all of it - to return to for life

By the end of 9-weeks, you'll have full knowledge of a 27-Stone Materia Medica. The potential for healing and helping others is limitless.

Everything comes together to give you these practical tools of service:

The Elixir Application:
Stone Medicine we place IN the Body

You'll learn what the word elixir really means, how to make potent stone elixirs, how to make effective formularies, how to dose, important safety instructions, how to make ceremonial elixirs, how to merge elixirs with other Earth medicines, and more.

 The Poultice Application:
Stone Medicine we place ON the Body

You'll learn how to work with jewelry, rubs, salves, the creation of on-the-body treatments, crystal healing and more.



 The Vibrational Application:
Stone Medicine we place AROUND the Body

You'll learn the dynamics of table-top crystal grids, the potential of large land grids, raising the vibration of space, working with stones as spectrum-based beings, internal alchemy, journey techniques, and more.

Here's my promise to you:

You can immerse yourself at zero risk.

Watching students grow for so many years, I've learned this:

To get the most out of a transformational training like this, you need an investment and an immersion.

You have to take a plunge. To make it even easier for you to jump, I've created a full refund guarantee on this training.

If you're unhappy with your enrollment for any reason simply email us by September 27th. This is the day after our first live class.

You can enroll now, let the pot begin to stir, come to our first live lecture, and still receive a full refund if needed.

When we begin our first class, the reason you're really here deepens and becomes activated, so we do have to seal the cave door after that evening.

If you decide you need to go, Jessica, your course assistant, will be right there. She will immediately refund your entire investment in full. We will also thank you for giving it a try. We are right on the other side of this email address: [email protected].

You can enroll in this journey with absolutely zero risk.

"So thrilling and exceeded my expectations.


The transformation I've experienced is priceless.”

- J.D. ETC Graduate

“I never knew stones were THIS special.


“My intention for these 9 weeks was to find me, to know myself, to come back home. 

And I have.” 

- ETC Graduate

You get so many course bonuses!

When you Enter the Cave, all of these treasures are yours.

Bonus #1

10% off the entire Enter the Cave Collection at the Clarity Crystal Shop

This is a gift to all new Enter the Cave students from all of our staff at The Clarity Crystal Shop. About two years ago, we created this shop for our students. The intention behind it is that students always have easy access to the most powerful and medicinal stones in the world- the stones I use in my own work. It's hard to put a value on the Siberian azurite, rainbow obsidian or Hurricane Mountain mica we collected for your journey ahead. But, listen carefully: These stones are optional. You don't have to purchase any. You can purchase from anywhere else you like. They are not included in your tuition because it's all your choice and different students want different things. The stones we have prepared for you in the Enter the Cave Collection are carefully curated to match you and elevate you in this course process. They will keep you sharp in your tools while you're getting sharper in your studies. This is not a one-shopping-cart situation here. You have 10% off for the whole course, on over 4,700 stones, anytime you enter the shop. When you enroll, you’ll receive a guide on how to accurately gather what you need for the course. We do have limited supplies because we carry some of the best and most rare healing stones on Earth.

Bonus #2

Supportive, Private, and Helpful Online Community

This is simply a connective portal where you can send and receive messages, questions and photos with other students in the training. You won't have to scroll through tons of posts or get dinged constantly with notifications building up. You can jump onto the page anytime you want, and ask your fellow stone friends anything: "Hey, when is that special live lecture this week?" or "Where did Sally say she was getting those special rose quartz from?" 

And, you can show them what you’re up to: "Check out this grid I made in my yard!" (insert your interesting photo). This way, you’ll know people’s names, have real connections and support, and it won’t be overwhelming. Feels better, right? And, once you graduate, we'll move you to a graduates only private group where the connection can continue as long as you like. The student support you receive in this training is excellent, but there’s nothing like the support of all the kindred souls in the cave.


Bonus #3

The Ancient Medicinal Quartz Guide PDF

In Enter the Cave, your materia medica includes clear quartz, rose quartz, smoky quartz and citrine. As you move through each quartz, this guide will illuminate the early stages of your journey and beyond. Quartz is so foundational to the stone and crystal healer. If we were bakers, quartz would be flour. It’s in almost every recipe you’ll create. Not only because 90% of the Earth is made up of silicates, but also because quartz is the greatest harmonizer in the mineral kingdom. It’s very commonly added to stone formulas and combinations in elixirs, body layouts and gridwork. This PDF guide will get many intriguing and helpful stone medicine facts about quartz into your notebook right when you begin the course. You’ll see formula writing tips, common quartz combinations, useful data on all of the quartz types (smoky, ametrine, etc.), clear and recharge methods, and communication techniques with quartz. I very rarely share a reference guide like this because the act of taking your own notes is an alchemical process. It awakens stored memory inside of you. However, for new Enter the Cave students, I’m going to share this reference guide, because it fits perfectly with where you’re headed.


Bonus #4

Becoming a Healer: Live Special Topic Class 

Towards the end, when you’re right on the brink of becoming a certified stone medicine and crystal healing practitioner, you’ll start to (excitedly) ponder the practical steps ahead. In Becoming a Healer, we’ll sit down together in our casual Friday attire and answer some of the most important questions on your radar. You’ll learn what to call yourself, how to practice safely and ethically, how to create forms, how to speak about your work, and some practice building tips. Experienced practitioners from many modalities will guide the less experienced. The best part of the class is our exploration of healing itself. I’ll share the most clarifying and revealing questions I ask my patients, several ways to incorporate stones and apothecaries into your practice, and most importantly… what really makes people heal. Everything comes together. 


Bonus #5

Stone Medicine Fundamentals: Live Special Topic Class

Okay, boring title for a lecture, but it’s camouflage for some mind-blowing information. Once you see the stones from this perspective, you can never unsee it!  This is a walk-through of ancient Daoist Stone Medicine, starting way back at the beginning. So many lightbulbs will turn on as we explore elixirs, historical stories, classifications (like color, temperature and crystal system), and so much more. I only share this lecture with serious students and we’ll go through it together live. This will be an extremely eye-opening evening. It happens very early in the course and it sets the stage for every single revelation that follows. Have you heard of the Primordial Sovereign of the Purple Void? Well, you’ll know her after this.


Bonus #6

Creating Clear Energetic Protections with Stones Masterclass Recording 
and the North Star Guide to Protection Protocols Digital Book

The recording to our opening Masterclass for Enter the Cave this year expires on Tuesday September 19th. We can’t keep it up forever. But, when you enroll in Enter the Cave, we will add it to your online curriculum and you’ll always have it there, for life. In addition, the North Star Guide to Protection Protocols digital book was a gift for live Masterclass attendees only. In case you had to miss the Masterclass, when you become a student in Enter the Cave, we will share that with you, too. The Masterclass and the guide detail 4 powerful protection protocols, how to perform them large-scale in home or on the land, method to create them as small holographic crystal grids, a list of the most protective stones on Earth, and many tips, tricks and gems for you to reference for life.

“So much has awakened within me. 


Knowledge, dreams, senses, feelings. 

I am in awe. I had no idea that in only 9 weeks, my consciousness would expand so immensely.”

- ETC graduate

“I have done energy healing classes. 

Honestly, I've had the most shifts with your programs over the past year!”

- ETC graduate


“Enter the Cave was truly life-changing for me."

- ETC Graduate

“I am forever changed.


I was given access, like a gift, to a deeper communication with that part of myself that

transcends time.”

- ETC graduate

“What I learned is so exciting.


And, the results are unbelievably powerful and wonderful.”

- ETC graduate


“This was a masterfully created environment of wisdom, journeying and love.”

- ETC graduate

It's time to choose from your heart.

You can give yourself the gift of an extraordinary experience.

Right now, you can enroll now and learn something that was always meant to awaken your heart.

You can choose to use this knowledge to help others wake up, too.

You'll also be smart...taking a training that's not just floating in the wind, but backed by centuries of ancient lineage and master teachers.

You'll be growing in yourself and growing in service.

Most importantly, you'll be answering the call from within.

Only goodness comes from that.


You can let the mind reign. You can let doubts and fears take over, and let this pass you by.

You'll have to keep your eye out for other trainings, but none of them will offer you what's waiting for you here.

In the meantime, you would miss so many chances to learn, grow, connect, listen and serve. You would miss synchronicities, and the river of medicine that's flowing for you right now.

These things can never be recreated. And the world doesn't have much time to wait for the next evolution of you.

What's your choice, dear friend?
Listen from within and follow the guidance, because the boulder will soon be rolled back over the opening of the cave.
