Space is limited!! This is a small women’s wellness group experience!

I hope you are staying safe and healthy! This April 4, 2020 class is postponed and will be rescheduled at a later time when the community health and safety situation has improved. John Micheal Kohler Arts Center is closed until at last May 9, 2020. A field trip there was a part of this class. See you most likely in June, July, or August 2020! Email me at mindsoulandself@yahoo.com to be added to my email newsleter to keep up to date on news. Thank you!

Talk therapies, medications, and conventional treatments do not work for everyone as healing often needs to occur at a deeper level. Many times talk therapies and medications are Band-Aids and do not get to the root of the problem. Some healing providers, as a consequence of their training, overlook the fact that clients consist of mind, body, energy, and spirit. The Biomedicine approach fails to acknowledge the spiritual, energetic, and transcendent aspects of the individual. We all have the potential to heal, no matter how deep our wounds may be. Powerful methods of psychological, emotional, and spiritual healing are largely non-verbal; art, music, dance, meditative states, and bodywork/energy work. The language of the soul/psyche is symbols, images, colors, vibrations, feelings, and patterns; we communicate this without words. Art, music, and dance are gateways to the unconsciousness and can facilitate deep healing, self-awareness, and transcendence.

Art, Music, and TranscenDANCE is a day of self-discovery! This workshop will introduce you to Spiritual Psychology & Transpersonal Psychology concepts, and techniques to support your own healing journey and path to wholeness. We will explore music, art, and dance as doorways deep into the psyche/consciousness to facilitate healing. This is a hands-on, experiential workshop and will have art, music, and dance/movement components. Christina’s office is a mile away from the John Michael Kohler Arts Center (JMKAC). The Exhibition theme at the time of this workshop will be On Being Here (and There) and reflects on what ‘care’ and ‘caring’ mean. As a part of our workshop, we will visit JMKAC. Christina is a tour docent at JMKAC and will personally guide you through the galleries and explore your response to the art. There is also a cafe at JMKAC where we can eat lunch. We will then return to Christina’s office where you will be guided and prompted to create your own artwork to explore themes and patterns in your life. The workshop will also have experiential music and movement portions. You will experience art, movement, and music in this day-long workshop as well as take-home numerous tools to utilize these non-verbal modalities in your own personal growth journey. Due to the limited nature of the Exhibition Galleries, this workshop is a once in a chance opportunity!


Workshop Itinerary:

  • 9am to 12pm: Lecture, Discussion, Theory, Preparation for Non-Verbal Healing Sessions
  • 12pm to 2pm: Visit JMKAC & Lunch
  • 2pm to 6pm: Experiential Art, Music, and Dance components, grounding, integration, & processing


Fee: The fee is $225. Includes a detailed workbook, all art supplies and materials.


Please note: This workshop presents spiritual and holistic approaches that treat the whole person. These services are considered alternative and complementary. They can greatly complement and accentuate Western Medicine and Conventional psychological/counseling approaches but they should not take the place of them.


Spiritual Psychology Series: This is a class in a series of Spiritual Psychology workshops by Dr. Christina. Additional classes include Introduction to Spiritual Psychology, Mind/Body Medicine, and Altered States/Trance Work. Additional topics planned for future Spiritual Psychology classes in 2020/2021 include Shadow Work, Archetypes, and Dreamwork. There is no pre-requisite to attend this class. You can attend one class in the series or all of them!


Goal of this Workshop: This is a personal growth opportunity open to anyone on a spiritual journey. It is also a professional development class for Reiki practitioners, massage therapists, bodyworkers, life coaches, intuitives, and other holistic practitioners. As holistic modalities become more and more popular, learning additional techniques can greatly enhance your client healing sessions by adding a spiritual psychology component. Learning additional techniques can also improve your business potential by giving you more experience and knowledge than other providers. There is a need and demand for quality holistic practitioners as more venues (Hospitals, Hospices, Clinics, etc) are adding holistic and spiritual services to satisfy clients and patients. This is also a great workshop for social workers, counselors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to learn spiritual psychology techniques and concepts to integrate into their healthcare to make it more holistic.
