Heads Up 

Attention, residents: An invasion of crystal skulls is coming! No one can agree on where they come from or what they mean for our future. They are a mystery — but there's hope! The balm of understanding can be yours at the Sanctuary for Mind, Body, and Spirit.

No, it's not a New Age update of The War of the Worlds, and it's not a convention of enthusiasts for the comic strip The Phantom or the film The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. It's actually — okay, this is going to sound mundane, but it's not — a workshop.

Crystal skulls — the subject of the workshop, being held this Saturday at the Sanctuary in Bartlett — are objects said to possess powers beyond normal human experience but not necessarily beyond the limit of human understanding. They may come from the Mayans, the Micronesians, or aliens. Opinions vary. Skulls have been said to have the power to pass on the wisdom of ancient peoples, to heal sickness, to facilitate self-discovery and connection with the earth, even to communicate and pass on information with other crystal skulls.

The workshop is for both the uninitiated looking to find out more and those already practicing crystal-skull enlightenment. (Bring your own crystall skull if you have one.) Madra Little will teach people how to activate and to learn to communicate with crystal skulls through meditation.

And that's not all. On August 10th-12th at the Sanctuary, the ancient crystal skull "Synergy" and its caretaker Sherry Whitfield Merrell will be on hand for workshops and group and private sessions. There are only six found ancient skulls in the world — legend has it that there are 13 in existence — so Synergy has attained something like rock-star (pun intended) status. This is one play date you'll want your crystal skull to attend.

Crystal-skull workshop, The Sanctuary, Saturday, July 7th, 7 p.m. 6266 Stage Plaza (Bartlett). $20 pre-registration/$25 at the door. For more information, call 377-6488.
