“People need to be in connection in order to change, open up, shift, transform, heal and grow” (Jordan & Hartling, 2002)

At the Goddess Gathering, come meet and connect with other women having spiritual awakenings! This is a support group for women experiencing the surreal and often unexplainable. Participants are those who are living and actively participating in the real world, but are spiritually waking up to something much more. This group acknowledges that many may have experiences that might sound crazy and impossible to “mainstream society.” No experiences are judged in these gatherings. The Goddess Gathering is a support group, discussion group, and sacred space for women looking for guidance, understanding, meaning, and connection on their spiritual awakening journey. In this support group, members in similar spiritual situations come together for self-exploration, to share coping strategies, to feel more empowered, to find purpose, and for a sense of community. This support group may discuss relevant metaphysical & esoteric topics, share information, relate personal experiences, actively listen to and validate each others’ experiences, provide sympathetic understanding, and establish a social network.


Who is this group for? This is a support group and study group for women experiencing the surreal and often unexplainable. The Goddess Gathering is for women sensitive to others’ energy/emotions (Empaths), women looking to understand & develop their intuitive/psychic gifts, women undergoing a spiritual transformation/awakening, starseeds, lightworkers, walk-ins, shamans, Indigo/Rainbow/Crystal/Diamond Children, women who have had near-death experiences, mystical experiences, kundalini awakening, healing crisis, spiritual emergencies, ascension symptoms, past life experiences, experiences with the divine, peak experiences, dark night of the soul, crisis leading to personal transformation, intuitive/psychic/medium experiences, and other hard to describe spiritual experiences. The impossible is possible! Any woman who has had spiritual experiences (such as those described above) and is on a spiritual awakening journey is welcome – no matter if they are a “beginner” or more advanced. Women from all over Wisconsin attend this group…Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Manitowoc, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Appleton, Madison, and beyond.


We discuss relevant metaphysical & esoteric topics. Some topics we cover in our gatherings:

Group Format: This is a safe, non-judgemental, and supported space to freely and openly discuss your journey and experiences, to connect, and to learn more about your own personal growth, spirituality, metaphysics, and healing. Dr. Christina facilitates and leads this group experience. In 2005 Christina had a near-death experience (walk-in) and spiritual awakening that transformed her life. Christina left the clinical psychology world and pursued training in Transpersonal Psychology. For over 11 years, she has facilitated hundreds of group classes, retreats, and events with thousands of women. Part of the magic of these group events is the acceptance, connection, understanding, and community that is created. The Goddess Gathering uses a women’s circle format and each participant has time to discuss, provide feedback, ask questions, and share their experiences with the group. Receive mentoring and guidance from Christina and other group participants. Discuss common themes and topics. Group will open with a guided meditation and after everyone has a chance to share, Christina will lead the group in a discussion/study of a relevant metaphysical topic. Everyone will also receive an intuitive message/mini-reading. Energy exchange: $25


Please note: This group should not take the place of regular mental and physical healthcare. You must be at least 18 to join this group.
