“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 experiences! The Goddess Gathering is a support group and sacred space for women looking for guidance, understanding, meaning, and connection on their personal growth and spiritual 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 topics, share information, relate personal experiences, actively listen to and validate each others’ experiences, provide sympathetic understanding, and establish a social network.

The Goddess Gathering is geared towards women sensitive to others’ energy/emotions (Empaths), women looking to understand & develop their intuitive/psychic gifts, women undergoing a spiritual transformation, starseeders, 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, drug and alcohol addiction as a spiritual awakening, crisis leading to personal transformation, intuitive/psychic/medium experiences, survivors of suicide attempts, and other hard to describe spiritual experiences. The impossible is possible!

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. Any woman who has had spiritual experiences (such as those described above) and is on a spiritual journey is welcome – no matter if they are a “beginner” or more advanced. Dr. Christina facilitates and leads this group experience. In 2005 Christina had a near death experience and spiritual awakening that transformed her life. Christina left the clinical psychology world and pursued training in Transpersonal Psychology.  For over 10 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. We use 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. Everyone will also receive an intuitive message/mini-reading. Group will open with a guided meditation and after everyone has a chance to share, Christina may lead the group in a discussion of a relevant topic. 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 are held approximately every 4 to 6 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 January 25th from 9am to 1pm. Topic: The Hero’s/Heroine’s Journey. Suggested book to guide January 25th Goddess Gathering discussion: The Hero with a Thousand Faces (The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell). Hero myth pattern studies were popularized by Joseph Campbell, who was influenced by Carl Jung’s view of myth. In his 1949 work The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Campbell described the basic narrative pattern as follows: “A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.” After we all check-in and discuss whats going on in our lives and give each other support, we’ll discuss how our own stories of personal growth and spiritual awakening follow the stages of the Hero’s journey.  Tentative 2020 Goddess Gathering dates include February 22, March 28, April 25, May 30, June 27, August 1, August 29, October 24, and December 12.

 

Facebook Group and Suggested Books: Christina has a private Facebook group for the Goddesses to stay connected to each other in between groups. There are also suggested books to read to keep connected and supported in-between groups. Current suggested book: When the Impossible Happens by Stan Grof MD, PhD.
