What I Know About Teens: Teens are wise old souls in young bodies. They are feisty, smart, insightful, edgy, deep thinkers and bodacious players on the field of life. Teens dance harder, sing louder, hug bigger and demand to know The Truth more urgently than anyone I teach.
Teens believe anything is possible and I love that about them. I respect them, believe in them, and see who they are in their immense potentials no matter what masks or insecurities are present. Teens are brilliant lights among us who are going to change the world. We need them. Deeply. To help them see their own magnificence, stand in their vision and power, love themselves and step up fully into their lives is my greatest joy as a transformational teacher.

"Christine Warren has a gift for youth mentoring and teen leadership training. She worked indelible miracles amongst our young adult and teen group in Swarthmore as one of our youth motivational speakers, directing our Teen Leadership training. Her teaching targeted and transformed key beliefs about their lives, vision, and potentials and opened each young person to new opportunities and ways of communicating with themselves and the world.

The clarity, kindness, and masterful facilitation that permeates her
work opens young people to their immense potentials. Our group included
African-American youth, at-risk and homeless teens, Islamic women, and
young people of privilege. Christine worked with all with equal empowerment
and respect and drew them all forth as a community, in a timeless journey

young girls' lives. Her warmth and loving presence immediately put my teenaged
girls at ease. They laughed and learned, opening both heart and mind and in the
end asked Christine to come back again! As one of SEEDS' youth motivational speakers,
she brings a lifetime of personal and professional experience in transformational
modalities to offer to these young women."

-Noah Bridgers; age 19, SGLA Leadership and Vision Participant
"I met Christine at a Teen Leadership and Vision program she led when I was in high school, and her teaching and presence resonated with me. At 19, I began transformational life coaching sessions with her, and the sessions aided tremendously in my personal growth and overcoming conflicts. Christine created a sanctuary of mindfulness, grace, empathy, and truth in every session. She provides a service that is deeply personal and completely genuine. In her care, I was able to examine myself, learn from what I discovered, and transform positively. Christine's many gifts have influenced my life, and I am incredibly grateful for her and her services."
