  Rumi has conducted workshops with friend and mentor Dr. Marcel Vogel with whom he acquired his fundamental training and knowledge of the use of quartz crystals. Of him,  Marcel said:

   “I see in Rumi Da a man who is capable of carrying on the teaching in a lovable, meaningful manner.  This teaching is to know Self in a deeper, more meaningful way and to release the attachments to the past in a loving manner.

   “Rumi Da now treads the path of Enlightenment and the unfolding of the Soul descending more fully into matter.  Rumi has the training, he has the crystals, and you can come to him... and he will have other people that he will train and this type of training can be passed on to others.”

Shortly before his death in 1991, Dr. Vogel asked Rumi Da to continue the work with crystals and specifically to offer teachings to those individuals interested in this form of service:

   “I ask that you carry on this work as best you can and maintain the standards we have striven to achieve over the years. I have given you the heart of my work and I know you will continue with wisdom and love.”

   To this purpose we continue the teaching on crystals and the exclusive authorized production of the authentic Vogel-cut crystals.

   Rumi Da has also trained in the use of crystals with Ross Andaloro, DaEl Walker and Dhyani Ywahoo.
