Living From The Source
Within you is a Source of spiritual and personal power and creativity which is always available for you to call upon. This Source is your own Higher Wisdom, also known as your indwelling Spirit, Christ consciousness, or your Higher Self, always present and waiting to be tapped into to invigorate your life, work, health and relationships with clear guidance. When you learn to live from your Source, your life takes on a magical quality of infinite opportunities, synchronous meetings and moments that are congruent with your standing in Spirit.
Navigating Change: Integrating Endings,
In Navigating Change, you explore your life changes through Christine's Wheel of Change model. You'll work experientially through each phase to gain power, healing, joy and clarity. Christine's personal growth workshops experiences in healing the past are balanced with moving through times of "the mystery" as we make major life changes. Christine's metaphysics and life vision teachings guide you in shaping your future expression. Note: Navigating Change is complementary to, but contains completely different content from, The Alchemy of Life Transitions (see below).
Metamorphosis: Transformation Through Transition
Metamorphosis offers a group chrysalis, a breathing space between forms in your life to integrate the past and envision the future. Our weekend provides the teachings, map and travelling instructions to guide you through your own life metamorphoses with insight, spiritual power and visionary new direction. You will discover ways to make your life passages times of wholeness, spirited inner guidance and fresh purpose for all you become and create next.
Lifewalk: The Hero's Journey & the
Every human life follows an ancient, archetypal pattern that is reflected throughout world mythology, poetry, and spirituality. The great mythologist Joseph Campbell defined this ancient journey as The Hero's Journey. In this highly experiential weekend, Christine's creative workshop facilitation guides you in exploring the stages of your own Hero's Journey, including Carl Jung's work in integrating the shadow. Creative workshop facilitation and teachings will support you in finding "the boon" in each stage of your human journey.
Fully Human, Fully Divine
A Transformational Retreat. In Fully Human, we marry our humanness-doing our inner healing work, finding vision for our lives, and liberating ourselves from inhibiting beliefs and outgrown patterns-with our true nature as spiritual beings. We learn how to mesh walking through life in a grounded, joyful way that honors our humanity with being sourced by the indwelling Spirit, or Higher Self, ever present and always guiding and helping us in all we do. This rich, life changing retreat includes group experiences and ritual in nature, gentle, guided Kripalu Yoga, instruction in simple meditation techniques, teachings from world scriptures, song and movement, and down to earth explorations of the meaning of being human.
One Spirit: Awakening Consciousness,
Presence, and Purpose
In One Spirit, we view the gifts and potentials of our own lives through the lens of the brilliant, inspirational teachings of mystical spirituality, metaphysics and quantum science to find their confluence in our everyday life: our One Spirit with all that is. One Spirit includes the vibrant spirituality of sufi masters Rumi and Hafiz, the deep peace of A Course in Miracles, the enduring wisdom of the Tao Te Ching, and the revolutionary findings of quantum physics and metaphysics applied to our potential and lives. From this deep remembrance of who we are, and of our interconnectedness with the entire Universe,we find an abundant life of presence in the moment, delight in life, deep creativity, and inner peace.
"Christine, you are a pathfinder. I brought much
previous knowledge and inner work, yet found that you presented yourself as a
safe containing vessel for whatever may arise in the group. You have traveled a
spiritual journey and are compassionately showing the path to others. You have
helped me make a new beginning."
-Alice Walker, Professor/Therapist
The Alchemy of Life
Transitions: Spinning Straw To Gold
This mythic, Jungian approach to working with Life Transitions approaches times of great change as sacred intersections in which we may release old patterns of "us" that have held us in place and locate our greatness, zest for life and expansive vision for our future. Creating as the ancient alchemists did from the raw material of our current life challenges and transitions--the "straw" of what has dried out and been used up in our lives-- we learn how to spin these outgrown experiences into gold, living heartily and wholly from our emerging, magnificent selves.
Note: The Alchemy of Life Transitions is complementary to, but contains completely different content from, Christine's Navigating Change personal growth workshops.
The Transformational Retreat is an intensive weekend retreat at Christine's Santa Fe Retreat Center and in the New Mexican wilderness, sharing in an intimate group setting. Deep time in the wilderness, extended group hours, experiences in metaphysics and Christine's personal growth workshop facilitation help you find new direction in your life, deepen your life vision, and heal the past more fully. Shamanic vision questing and group ritual in the high desert mesas create deep bonding and shared growth with fellow retreatants. Meals are shared, outdoors when possible, at Christine's center, and evenings include campfires, song, and hot tub soaking under the stars with healing rituals.
Living A Course in Miracles:
Christine offers weekly groups and workshops inspired by her study and teaching of the Course in Miracles. Like her other workshops, these are a blend of experiential work, deep teaching, group exercises, creative work, group ceremony and meditation. The teachings draw on Christine's years of studying the Course, interpreted through her life experience and practice. Click on link for details.
