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

Registration closes June 12. Register at bottom of this page.

Dr. Christina’s experience working in the Western mental health and psychology field and her own personal healing experience has taught her that talk therapies and medications do not work for everyone and healing occurs at a deeper level. Often talk therapies and medications are Band-Aids and do not get to the root of the problem. Western Psychology also fails to acknowledge the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the psyche. Christina’s own personal healing journey includes recovery from addiction (13 years sober as of May 1, 2018!!!) depression, suicidal ideation, and anxiety. Christina is also a survivor of Domestic Violence. She believes that we all have the power to heal, no matter how deep our wounds may be. Christina sought out Western Counseling in her healing journey but found meditation, yoga, a women’s spiritual group, aromatherapy, herbal medicine, art, music, dance, and spirituality was what really saved her life. Her mission is to share these methods with others and help light up the world. Things can get better if you want them to. Christina has also come to understand, the only true ways to heal psychologically and emotionally, are non-verbal: through art, music, dance, altered states of consciousness, and bodywork/energy work. The language of the soul/psyche is symbols, images, colors, and patterns; we communicate this non-verbally. She has totally embraced the power of art as a gateway to the unconsciousness. Christina is very involved with John Michael Kohler Arts Center (JMKAC) in Sheboygan, WI. John Michael Kohler Arts Center is a not-for-profit art museum operated by the Sheboygan Arts Foundation and is known worldwide as an authority on self-taught artists and art environments. She is the chair of the JMKAC Indoor Gardens, is a member of the Friends of the Arts Council, and is a museum docent (teacher/tour guide).

This is a day of self-discovery! This workshop will explore Spirituality, Holistic Healing, Personal Growth, Transpersonal Psychology concepts, and music, art, and dance as doorways deep into the psyche to facilitate healing. This is a hands-on, experiential workshop. Christina’s office is two blocks away from John Michael Kohler Arts Center. The Exhibition theme right now at JMKAC is ‘Unseen Forces.’ Three of the Galleries (The Healing Machine, a Tail of Two, and Funk Dreamscapes from the Invisible Parallel Universe) explore alternative methods of healing. As a part of this workshop, Dr. Christina will take you to JMKAC and guide you through the galleries and explore your response to the art. 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. Part of the Unseen Forces Exhibition closes July 1st, so this is a great opportunity to experience the powerful artwork before then. Next door to Christina’s office is also the new gallery, Abstract Expressions, scheduled to open May 1. We will also check out this gallery as a part of our process. The workshop will also have an experiential music and movement portion. 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!

Fee: The fee is $185. Includes a donation to JMKAC, all supplies and materials, and a workbook.  We will also take a lunch break around 12pm/1pm.
