“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 live online 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. Open to women anywhere in the USA and Canada. 

 

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. This group started in January 2019 in Sheboygan, Wisconsin and women from all over Wisconsin attended the face to face group…Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Manitowoc, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Appleton, Madison, and beyond. As of March 2020, this group shifted to an online group initially for COVID-19 Prevention. Women from all over the Midwest, West Coast, and East Coast started attending the group when it was moved online. So Christina made the decision to continue this group as an online group until further notice to serve a larger geographical area. Space in the online group is limited to about 10 to 15 women so everyone has time to share and discuss. PLEASE NOTE, OCTOBER 2020 IS GOING TO BE A SPECIAL IN-PERSON GODDESS GATHERING (SOCIALLY DISTANCED & OUTSIDE). 

 

We discuss relevant metaphysical & esoteric topics. Some topics we cover in our gatherings:
● Experiences of awakening and spiritual emergence
● Communication with other dimensions, the spirit world, the divine, angels, ancestors, light-beings
● Finding our soul purpose
● Personal stories of healing and transformation
● Trying to maintain a normal career & family life while experiencing an Awakening
● Managing new psychic and intuitive skills: clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, etc.
● The struggles of being an empath
● Helpful healing modalities to assist with the Awakening
● Psychic protection, energy clearing, the Chakras, Reiki, the Aura, The Light Body, Energy modalities
● Past Lives, the Astral Realm, Higher States of Consciousness, Synchronicity

 

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. Space is limited to about 10 to 15 women so everyone has time to share and discuss. 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.

 

2020 Meetings: The Goddess Gathering is held approximately every 4 weeks. You are welcome to come once and check it out or attend every group for regular support, community, and guidance. We have a number of women that attend every group, some that attend once in a while as their schedule allows, and we usually have new women that come to check the group out every meeting. The next Goddess Gathering will be Saturday October 24 from 9am to 1pm CST (Special in-person event). Additional 2020 Goddess Gathering dates include Saturday November 21 and Saturday December 12 (November and December will be held online).

 

October 24, 2020 Meeting: Pending the weather (we are hoping for a beautiful autumn day), the Saturday October 24th, 9am to 1pm, Goddess Gathering will be our first face to face meeting since February 2020. We will meet outside and socially distanced at a private property in Western Sheboygan County in Wisconsin. (If its raining or bad weather we will meet online instead).  Please dress warm, bring a lawn chair, and bring drums, singing bowls, guitars, etc if you have them as we will end the gathering with a bonfire and drum circle to raise the vibration 💕Register below and you will be given the address the day before. The intent for a face to face meeting is to see each other before we all hunker down for the winter.
