There are many speakers who promise big changes and profound insights but few deliver like best-selling author, woman's advocate, and Founder of "The SWAT Institute", Crystal Andrus.
Riveting—laughter, tears, awe, and purpose, Crystal passionately takes her audience on a journey of truth, clarity and sense & sensibility that empowers them to become the heroes of their own lives.
Added to the pure magic is an interwoven musical experience by deeply-moving singer/songwriter, Natalie Hughes—with the voice of angel, the story-telling of an old soul, and the perfect counterpart to Crystal's words of wisdom, these two women are able to create an event that will leave your audience raving for years to come. Truly.
We can't fully put into words precisely what happens at each one of Crystal's events—since it is so personal and so unique for each woman—but let us share a few of her recent testimonials:
Your retreat was Simply...Phenomenal! I was so impressed on so many levels (and at this point in my life I'm not easily impressed). Your ability to convey love, acceptance and respect for everyone, while at the same time sharing who you are was so refreshing!! (And you are so funny!!! )
I've been on the metaphysical/spiritual path since I was born (give or take a couple of detours) and have a career that expands over 20 years as a clinical social worker. In my personal and professional pursuits, I've come across many groups and programs that offered this that and the other thing, but the workshop that you facilitate is truly in a league of its own!
You create an energy where miracles do happen. I witnessed it. I experienced it. It is in this energy field that quantum healing happens for mind, body, and soul; years of living from that wounded place begin to melt away. If that wasn't enough, you manage to keep yourself and us in that energy all day long!! Seriously? Wow!!
Crystal, I am so thankful that part of my soul contract included meeting you! You are absolutely beautiful (when you walked in I said to Mary Kay "she looks like an angel" - little did I know! Or maybe I did). This workshop quantum leaped to becoming the number one resource for my friends and clients!!

Life is so amazing! I walked away on Saturday from your event feeling so empowered and reminded of the beauty, resilience, and connection that we all share … whether we are aware of it or not. You are this perfect example to the world, and certainly firsthand to the women that were blessed by your genuine love and support.
Your magnificent presence and radiant light allows for others to reconnect to this truth and to feel it again at a very deep level. How do I say thank you enough? To convey how moved I am to have had this experience?
Though I have gone to similar retreats with the same sort of processes that you guided us on, this day in particular confirmed within me my immense capacity to feel and to be love. You showed me this freedom to share and you did this through all aspects of yourself.
So "BE"autiful Crystal – the day was awesome! The music and singing shared by Natalie was like a cozy warm blanket (a comforter) that wrapped us up in love. The food was so yummy, and the connection with the other women was pure. For all that you are … for the way you share your journey so that we may experience our own greatness … I am grateful.
With heartfelt love forever,
Listen Here to a Sample of One of Crystal’s Recent Talks:
Crystal can tailor a talk for your audience, with flexible duration and demographics.
Here are two of her most popular:
Simply...EMPOWERED! Very similar to the one presented above, this event is geared toward “Creating & Sustaining Success”. A perfect topic for men and women, this talk is always a grand slam with audiences! Laughing, crying, and examining your life with gentle freedom, participants are then given a clear map on how to reinvent a brighter future. Natalie Hughes’ perfectly-placed songs allow the audience short moments to breathe, process, and digest the intense information being delivered. Crystal can adapt this event towards more specific topics such as business wealth, physical or emotional health & wellness, weight loss, women’s empowerment, or creating loving lasting relationships.
The Simply...WOMAN Retreat! This talk is designed especially for women who are ready to break through any barriers that are holding them small and stuck in their lives. Creating a space of complete trust and sisterhood (rarely found like this anymore), Crystal shows her audience how to strip away the masks that have held them victims to their past. Natalie Hughes' accompanying songs shift everyone inward towards their spiritual strength and wisdom. Participants walk away with an incredible boost of self love, courage, willingness, faith and freedom.
