July 2021 Newsletter "Amenities"
Crow Moon Healing Bed and Breakfast
July 2021 Newsletter
“What are your amenities?”
A lady reached out recently to Crow Moon Healing’s Facebook page and asked, “What are your amenities?” Honestly, she caught me off guard. I actually looked up the word because I wasn’t sure I had any amenities to offer. Looking over the definition for amenity, did I have any useful features at the bed and breakfast? At first, I was thinking, “No, not really. We don’t have a pool or hot tub.” Before I answered her question though, I decided to sit with my disappointment around the word amenities. In quiet contemplation, my response became clear. I’m grateful for this person’s question because it gave me an opportunity to be clear and present with my intention for Crow Moon Healing.
We’ve got amenities that most bed and breakfast don’t have. Starting with our breakfasts that are created with guest’s dietary preferences in mind. I have worked with vegan, vegetarian, low-carb, keto, diabetic, and paleo diets. I ask guests to share with me their likes and dislikes concerning food as well so I can support their stay the best I can. I also allow guests to set their own breakfast time as I’m understanding that everyone is on a different schedule. That in itself sets Crow Moon Healing apart from most bed and breakfasts.
Another element that we have here at Crow Moon Healing Bed and Breakfast is that of neutral compassion. We support guests where they’re at in life. Some people come for respite, just needing a quieter place to stay for a few days to decompress. Other’s like to share their stories as they process through life challenges and we listen and hold space for them. While other guests choose to spend time in nature, hiking at Indian Lake or Devil’s Lake. We take care of guests, like they are family.
Some people are drawn to Crow Moon Healing Bed and Breakfast because of the energy of the animals. They pet Alfred the Jersey steer or groom Bella, the beautiful horse, converse with Tic, the chicken or pet Mae Mae and Montana the little goats. William the pig, loves peanuts and guests seem to enjoy watching him shuck his own peanuts. Each animal has a story of their own on how they ended up supporting guests at Crow Moon Healing. I would have to say the crew here is an amenity.
Another amenity at Crow Moon Healing Bed and Breakfast is Debra Morrill, shamanic healer/teacher. On my website crowmoonhealing.com, Debra has her own page that explains services, fees, classes and contact information to set up an appointment for a shamanic healing. You can plan your stay combined with a healing with Debra by either contacting Debra Morrill directly or Crow Moon Healing.
At Crow Moon Healing, there is a healing energy. It comes through just being here, in conversation, being present with the animals, being in nature and with a healing session or a class taken with Debra Morrill at Crow Moon Healing.

Connecting with Divine Spirit through Shamanism
A two-day basic shamanism workshop
Saturday, September 18, 2021 • 9 am - 9 pm
Sunday, September 19, 2021 • 9 am - 4 pm
Crow Moon Healing • 6472 Breunig Road, rural Mazomanie, WI
From the beginning of time, indigenous cultures on every continent shared a shamanic spiritual view. Our forebears lived close to the earth, deeply in tune with her cycles and seasons, the elements and nature. In this connection, they found their spirituality. They believed that every living being had a spirit - not just people, but also animals, trees, stones and plants. They commonly traveled into the spirit realm to communicate and interact with power animals, spirit guides and nature spirits. Through exploring the basics of shamanism, we can rekindle our connection to the divine and develop our ability to communicate directly with Spirit to receive guidance on our spiritual path. This is a foundational class for future shamanic workshops.
In this two-day experiential workshop, we will:
• gain comfort with accessing wisdom through the shamanic journey and explore the shamanic realms by journeying to the Lower and Upper Worlds
• meet a power animal and a spirit teacher to serve as guides in the spirit world
• practice a method of divination with natural objects and connect with nature spirits
• participate in a fire ceremony to release and transform energy
• experiment with the shamanic sounds of drumming and rattling
Fee: $375 with early registration by September 1 -OR- $425 after September 1. Meals included in the workshop fee: snacks, lunch on Saturday, breakfast on Sunday and lunch on Sunday. Dinner on Saturday evening is potluck style before the evening fire ceremony. Saturday night lodging is available on-site at no extra charge, or bring a tent and camp if you prefer. If you are from out of town and wish to arrive Friday evening, lodging is also available. This is NOT included in the workshop fee, so you would need to make arrangements directly with Karen McIntosh of Crow Moon Healing for Friday night.
To register or for more information, please contact Debra Morrill at 608-279-4319 or email@example.com.

Energy Essentials for Empaths (in-person)

Module 1 - Saturday, September 25, 2021
Module 2 - Saturday, October 23, 2021

All modules are from 9 am - 5 pm

These are trying times for everyone, especially for empaths. And these days, many more people are sensitive to energy. Crisis has a way of bringing our animal instincts to the surface. The ability to sense energy is a survival mechanism designed to keep us safe and ensure the continuation of the species. But we’re not meant to live in that place of heightened awareness all the time. It’s exhausting and draining to feel everyone’s pain and carry the weight of the world on our shoulders.
Fortunately, we can learn to develop healthy energetic boundaries that enable us to be more comfortable in our body and energy field. Tools from psychic development, shamanism and meditation can help us develop healthy habits and permanent skills. This class is experiential along with group discussion and sharing. It is helpful to learn from each other and receive support. Appropriate for all experience levels - no prior experience necessary, although the ability to receive insight and intuitive information during guided meditations is helpful.
Participation in Module 1 is a pre-requisite for Modules 2 and 3.
Module 1 - The Basics - Saturday, September 25, 2021
• connecting to Mother Earth and receiving her support in grounding
• the Recipe, a tool to start the day aligned, centered and protected
• working with a body protector power animal for maintenance of the energetic field
• tools for healthy energetic boundaries
Module 2 - Self Care for Empaths - Saturday, October 23, 2021
• neutral compassion and holding space
• tools for supporting others without taking on their energy
• identifying and releasing limiting agreements that allow us to take on the energy of others

Module 3 - Being Sovereign in the Body - Saturday, November 20, 2021
• maintaining seniority when under stress

This is an in-person class at Crow Moon Healing, a spiritual B&B located just off Highway 12 halfway between Middleton and Sauk City, WI.

“A New Normal”
There is optimism in the faces of guests arriving at the Bed and Breakfast this last month. The cautious behavior of last year is slowly dissipating, replaced by an awkward variance of a new normal. Some guests come wearing masks, but remove them once it’s established that we’re all fully vaccinated, others want to shake hands but switch up to elbow bumps and still some, after spending a night or two here, ask to share a hug. Such intimacy was taboo last year and it can feel a bit awkward.
We’re all at various stages of a “New Normal” and it’ll look different for different people, depending on their comfort level. At Crow Moon Healing, we are fully vaccinated and ready to meet people where there at in their “New Normal”.
Debra Morrill is returning to in-person healing sessions and classes at Crow Moon Healing!!
