at Mind Prana Academy

Are you ready to MASTER CRYSTALS and learn how to use them? We provide a simple, powerful approach to changing your life with stones. Whether you're brand new or already a certified healer, our hands-on classes and programs focus on an undeniable EXPERIENCE of energy and your personal TRANSFORMATION using crystals.


I'm Chris von der Mehden, the founder and director of the Crystal Healing Institute here at Mind Prana Academy. Below, you'll find a variety of free resources to get you started on your journey with crystals.

Before I taught crystal healing, I designed space-age crystals for use in Lithium-ion batteries as part of my graduate research in chemical engineering. My metaphysical approach to crystals is the same as my electrochemical approach - how can we deeply understand these processes and use them to enrich and better our lives?

If you're new here, the best way to get started is to grab a free class and dive in. Enjoy!
