We are all swimming in a sea of Trauma and for the most part it is invisible and at the heart of most of humanity's suffering. These events are designed to create a space for trauma awareness, integration and healing through awareness-based practices such as meditation, contemplation, prayer and most of all, creating a safe space to feel felt, seen and heard in a supportive group field.
If we didn't get the nurturing we needed as a child our very intelligent and protective nervous system adapted by suppressing overwhelming emotions, experiences and situations. These unintegrated experiences from the past become frozen in our bodies, diminishing our vital energy and ability to respond to difficult situations. This work will allow us to move from habitual reaction to emergent response-ability when confronted with life's challenges.
We begin our circle with a grounding, centering and embodiment meditation designed to create more inner spaciousness and outer awareness so that we can meet, greet and integrate personal, familial, collective and ancestral trauma in a safe and supportive space. From that grounded place we will open the circle as an exploration into the practices, challenges and opportunities for trauma release, integration and post traumatic healing.

Michael Stone is a man of great authenticity and a great heart filled with compassion and empathy for all. The Way of the Mystic course has made a huge difference in my life. Michael's guidance and support has opened up a new way of seeing the world and a new way of being. Michael's greatest strengths I saw was how he managed to create the space so that not only was he connected with every one of his students but we all also felt part of a new community. When the course was over I found myself missing that space of connection with people from far away places on the earth. I would recommend any and all to take courses with the Well of Light. - Marius Hansson
I have been a part of Michael’s circle - deeply involved in leading business as well as senior elements of politics. I found myself in conflict, my mind never let me go and my soul was constantly attempting to emerge. I found myself not understanding the friction that existed between them. I was looking for a guide/translator to provide the piece I needed to understand the 2 elements that were me. Michael in his gentle and yet erudite and intelligent guidance has, over months, opened doors for me. I now realize that the spiritual part of me, that seeks to not be living in a solo world, understands we all are part of a greater being. I know living in the present and dealing with collective trauma, and to heal our species and planet is achieved through a discovery of me: what's inside of me; creating space inside of me. Discovering my interiority. Discovering the bits of history (ancestors or my early years) that need to be loved and experienced and acknowledged so that there is more room in me to share now.
Michael is a wise, sensitive and practical soul. Through his life long work he has learned how to deal with the vagaries of multiple personalities, competitive ego’s and damaged beings. He innately picks up on hurt and wounds, reaches out and draws out the pain allowing healing and onward movement. Michael teaches from a place of profound understanding and his desire to help, to guide and to lead his students towards a place of light is manifest throughout his courses. I have discovered much by listening to Michael, by watching his guidance, by pondering on his messages. I have watched him deal with his own pain and still manage to bring light to others as he suffers. He is quick to smile, always ready to forgive. He is patient but also demanding, he will focus on an issue and gently guide an individual to their solution.
Michael Stone is an empathetic Shaman, a Spiritual Guide, a Man of Light. I look forward to being taught by him again, very soon. - Michael Winfield
I'm more honest, compassionate and connected with people than I've ever been before. The course Michael ran was a huge wave in that growth. I think of Well Of Light and I get hope and excitement. Youthful elders doing their thing. Having age not be a limit; and it's not the true reality. To witness that is inspirational. I feel great, hopefully excited about being an elder myself. I got what I came for initially, to be around Michael. It was to grow confidence to lead others through meditation and holding space and being in each class I developed and devoured it. I paid attention to my body. 7-24 times per day, I feel my body. This course gave me that subconscious access. It's invaluable; our tool, our beacon to the universe to what's happening and what's stored in the past. To be with it and be ok with it. How to be with others and see them as others. See them as ourselves. What we are feeling from them is inside of us. Michael brought us through the dynamics through practice, knowledge, wisdom, intellectually and experientially. Michael gave us a grasp on being with people that I don't think many people have to have even written about. He is the guy that's been able to deliver it the most enjoyably. - Matthew Learning
It was a big journey, I felt very supported in deepening my practice and it's a big part of me now. The big teaching or lesson for me during these 6 months was to be aware of my body. Be aware of everything I've been feeling and be with it. The way I used to cope was to keep doing things and get busy. So my mind and body wouldn't be aware. The capacity to be with all that was happening in a way that I felt grounded and peaceful. I loved how Michael would interact with each person, it was very respectful and professional. He really cares about everyone there and creates a space of safety and harmony. The way he communicates outside the group if you need anything, and the way he cares about people is something I really value. It's something that kept me moving. - Leyre Murrilo
Doing this work has shifted my spiritual journey, the group has fortified my constitution and also my enthusiasm around this journey. My friends have remarked how different I seem, and that a change is very apparent. My reactions and my interactions have been so different than before, in that I don't let things penetrate my past wounds. I've come to a place of understanding that's made me glide across this river so much more easily. You can develop a sense of trust in yourself to practice your inner listening and guidance, which we tend to give away. In this safe place we've been in (the group), it helped us nurture that part of us and helped us trust our own gut. Even the people who were the most quiet in our group were very powerful. If I shared something that happened, they would privately write to me saying that they related or were there for me. This was an incredible support group. - Ginger Sledge
A special thanks to you Michael for your gentleness and ability to guide us into depths of our souls where we had not been in a long time. Unearthing those buried emotions which want to be touched and loved. - Patricia de la Borbolla
May you awaken to the mystery of being here and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence. May you have joy and peace in the temple of your senses. May there be kindness in your gaze when you look within.” ~~ John O’Donohue This quote expresses only a few of the many gifts I received from Michael during the course, ‘The Way of the Mystic’. Michael has a compassionate, open, kind and gentle essence that illuminates one’s spirit. His intuitive ability helped me to open myself up to my own goodness and supported me in seeing and embracing self love. His teachings and explanation about PRESENCE and the MOMENT OF NOW provided a much needed respite for me from constantly ‘living in the past or in the future’. I am much more at peace with where I am in my life. THANK YOU, Michael, for your presence in this world! - Rita Falsetto
Michael’s presence (and by extension, his teachings) have allowed my own inner-mystic to reveal herself, unearthing my innate and extraordinary capabilities. At 24, I am newly grounded, empowered & excited to continue on the Path of the Mystic!
Michael himself is such a free and inevitably inspiring person, on the frontlines of universal spiritual healing. I cannot adequately convey how much goodness he has fostered on our planet during his lifetime. But I can say that his goodness is contagious, and his work blessed. Anyone seeking to deepen their relationships (with themselves, loved ones, un-loved ones, the planet) will do so with Michael. If you’re curious, go for it! - HollyFaris
