“Soul Searching” is the process and journey of examining your consciousness and diving deep into your soul.  It is embarking on a quest to discover your own truth, identity, passion, purpose, place, values, and meaning. When we go soul-searching, we’re looking to find something, whether it’s something new or something we previously misplaced. What we’re searching for varies from person to person. It is exploring, researching, and experiencing as you gather insight and knowledge.

This series of spiritual and metaphysical classes will introduce participants to a number of different spiritual topics and allow soul evolution and personal exploration through metaphysical study, spiritual exercises, and activities.

Upcoming Live Workshops:

Saturday February 12, 2022
1pm to 4pm CST
Online/Zoom
Topic: Alternatives to Sage and Smudging: An Exploration of Cleansing and Purification Techniques from Different Cultures and Belief Systems. The goal of this workshop is to help people explore cleansing and purification techniques that may be more appropriate to their personal spiritual practices. There has been a lot of recent conversation and controversy around appropriation of certain practices across the world by westerners (Reiki, Yoga, Smudging, etc). People using White Sage to smudge is a great example of this. There is back lash and anger from some Native American and Indigenous Cultures over use of culturally specific techniques that people from outside the culture don’t really understand. Other problems include overharvesting of White Sage and capitalizing, exploiting, and profiting off of indigenous practices.  In this workshop, we will discuss cultural appropriation vs cultural appreciation.  We will also discuss the concept of Plastic Shaman (slang term for individuals who are attempting to pass themselves off as shamans or other traditional spiritual leaders, but who have no genuine connection to the traditions or cultures they claim to represent and often exploit that knowledge for ego, power, or money). Participants will then be introduced to a number of different purification techniques from various spiritual traditions including Saining from the Scottish/Irish/Celtic Culture, Vastu Shuddhi and Dhoop from Ayurveda, Norse/Viking Techniques, Egyptian techniques, Greek/Roman, Anglo-Saxon, Feng Shui, Buddhist, Esoteric, Metaphysical, and Magickal Traditions. We will also cover non-culture specific techniques like fire rituals, crystals, crystal grids, sound, salt, and candles. Registration for attendance closes February 10, 2022.

Soul Searcher: Spiritual & Metaphysical Classes



Previously Recorded Workshops Available for Purchase:

-Yoga for Spiritual Awakenings & Dark Night of the Soul-
Dr. Christina is proud to host Michelle Bauer for a special Goddess Gathering!! Michelle was a special education teacher for 27 years and then had a spiritual awakening. Her experience catapulted her onto a new path of self-discovery and healing. She retired from special education and pursued training as a yoga teacher. Michelle is passionate about using yoga to empower others as they navigate through their spiritual awakening journey and dark night of the soul. Michelle has a Masters Degree in Education and is a Certified Yoga Teacher and Certified Restorative Yoga Teacher.  Body-based modalities such as yoga, massage, and dance are extremely helpful in coping with an awakening.  Learn how yoga can assist you in processing and integrating your experience. Learn how yoga poses correlate to the hero’s journey (the steps of the spiritual awakening journey).  Michelle will then guide you through a gentle Hatha Yoga Hero’s Journey sequence. This deep dive is for both yoga beginners/newbies and more advanced. Experience yoga like you never have before!  Fee: $55.  **Suggested reading to prepare for this deep dive is The Hero with Many Faces by Joseph Campbell. Please pay the $55 fee below.

-Death & Dying: Psychopomps, Death Doulas, Exit Guides, and Soul Midwives- Psychopomps are a concept originating from Greek mythology. Psychopomps are soul guides that escort and guide newly deceased souls from Earth to the afterlife. Their role is not to judge the deceased, but simply to guide.  Modern Psychopomps are called Death Doulas, Exit Guides, and Soul Midwives. Death is one of life’s most potent, transformational, and sacred passages. It is also one of the most denied, ignored, and feared. We will discuss examples of Psychopomps throughout history, soul guiding techniques in different spiritual traditions, deities/gods/goddesses that are Psychopomps and how to work with them.  We will discuss ways that you can facilitate this sacred work (with family, friends, clients, patients, as a volunteer in hospice) and ways to tap into the veil. Death is a journey we all will take when it is our time….there is nothing to fear. Please pay the $55 fee below.

-Faery Magick Workshop-Working with the The Elements, Fairies, Gnomes, Phoenix, Dragons, Pixies, Mermaids, and other Elementals. Faeries are believed to have descended from the Tuatha De Danann, a magickal race that made their home in Ireland. Due to the Faeries’ connection with the Tuatha De Danann, many who practice Faery Magick also work with the Celtic pantheon. Faery Magick is the act of asking the Fae to assist in your spells, ceremony, energywork, meditation, and rituals. It is divining, communicating, and channeling them and listening to the lessons they have to teach. The foundation of Faery Magick and working with the Fae is Trust. The Fae don’t trust humans easily as humans have destroyed nature. Therefore, we will discuss how to build rapport and relationships with the Fae, how to become better stewards, and protectors of nature. We will discuss ALL the different types of Fae, building a faery altar, communicating with the Fae, where to find the Fae, ways to protect yourself when working with the Fae, and Faery spells & rituals. Christina will also guide you through a guided meditation/hypnosis to meet and communicate with the Fae. This was a live class that was recorded (video) and is now available as an online/on-demand class! The online/on-demand class includes a 3.5 hour class recording (video), a detailed workbook in pdf form, and additional written materials. Please pay the $55 fee below.

-Working with the Ancestors and Ancestral Healing-Ancestral Healing allows us to make peace with the members of our family, forgive them, and help them heal their unresolved emotional issues, problems or trauma, going back many generations. In so doing, it releases you from any energetic patterns and energetic cords that link you to them – patterns that can have a disruptive influence on your life today. When we have an ancestor from our past that needs healing, they hang on energetically to our family line and create negative energetic structures. This causes us to have a harder time letting go of things that no longer serve us and leaves us feeling like we are stuck. We may notice that we repeat the same patterns over and over. We know that this is causing us pain, but feel like there is no way out. Ancestral healing is extremely beneficial for many people because when we release and heal these ancestral patterns, any blockages we have in our lives clear and heal. This too can clear the way for our children and future descendants. And don’t worry, you don’t need to know anything/everything about your lineage(s)/ancestors or even be in a good relationship with them to do this work. Please pay the $55 fee below.

On-Demand, Online Class Option: Each live online Zoom class will be recorded and available afterwards as an online/on-demand class for you to purchase if you missed the live class.
