Testimonials from Healing Sessions, Readings, and Past Life Regressions with Dr. Christina

“I am so blessed to have had the time to learn from you and learn about myself. Thank you for the gift.” Michelle from Wisconsin

“I had taken a past lives regression with you previously. I don’t know if you recall so I wanted to remind you. And traveled back to Shambhala! I also still feel like there’s a lot to unwravel there. It was my first past lives regression and we healed all past lives in that session. Just it feels so deep and meaningful I think I’ll be analyzing it for some time.” Emily from Minnesota

“An appointment for services with Dr. Christina at Mind Soul and Self LLC is always a great experience. The care is holistic, informative & open. The atmosphere is conducive to receiving what insights are needed. I recently had a Chakra reading which for me was helpful in understanding self. I would return again for any number of the services or classes offered by Mind Soul and Self LLC.” ~ J. from Wisconsin

Testimonials from Christina’s Weekend and Day Retreats:

“I recently participated in one of the Mind, Soul, and Self retreats and it was magical! A retreat is a rare opportunity to step away from daily life and really immerse yourself into studying, exploring, and experiencing everything Christina teaches. What really heightens the experience is sharing it with complete strangers. We all came from different stages of life, regions, and experiences. We also had unique personal circumstances which led us individually to find out about and attend this spiritual retreat. Not only did I learn through my own experiences that weekend, but I learned through everyone else’s too. It is a truly bonding experience to walk that journey together. I left this retreat with so much to process, but I’m also really excited to build off what I’ve learned about myself and see which paths I’m led to next. Thank you, Christina, for holding space for us and creating such an immersive experience with no worries about any of the details. Pure magic!” Cindy from Illinois 2022

“Dear Christina, what a wonderful retreat! It was such a nice break and very worthwhile. I can’t thank you enough for providing excellent services to women.” S.A. 2019

“I wanted to tell you that your retreat really impacted my life. I can honestly say that I’ve had a significant shift in my life since that experience, there is a fundamental difference. I think it was really beneficial and I appreciate the work you do. I have kept in touch with many of the women from the retreat. Thank you for that too.” SF from Illinois 2018

“So, all in all, combined, my weekend with you was meant to be…I know more about chakras now than I did before I came. I will say that as I went through each of them, I was familiar with their meanings on a conscious level but never called them chakras. So now these meanings have a name and I know where they live. I am grateful for the confirmation that I am on the right path. I feel as though I have walked side by side with chakras along my life’s journey and now I know what to feel for while I further my education in life. Now I can if I want to, incorporate them into my translation of communication with others if need be or not. Hopefully, that makes sense. If this sounds like a testimonial and it is helpful for others like me so they may make a decision to come be a part of your world, you are welcome to use my thoughts. You have truly found your niche in life! I loved listening to you as you are quite articulate as well as eloquent. Your words are the embodiment of your spirituality. Because of your encouragement, I want you to know that I will continue to help heal those who seek me out, not by word of mouth, I don’t think but by fate, as it has happened many times for me over the years. I thank the Universe for those times as I remain truly grateful for each and every one of them while I pray for more. Through these experiences do I gain more faith and self-confidence while keeping my ego in check. Thank you, my sister, and the Universe for bringing us together.” Affectionately D. from Kansas 2018

“Thank you for a wonderful retreat. It was important for me to get back in touch with myself, my soul and spiritual path and to find what is needed to find balance in my life. The program is well prepared and makes you think about the good, bad and ugly and gives us an opportunity to unite with other beautiful women. I realize it is important to live, love and learn with all of your being. Only then will you feel complete. With my full heart I thank you.” LJ from Wisconsin 2018

“Thank you so much for the retreat. It was life-changing and provided direction for my life. I had felt stuck and no longer do. I think it provided a piece I was missing in my life. I got more out of it than expected or intended. You are a blessing to this world. You are an amazing friend, daughter and woman. God is using you to help and be a channel of healing for so many women. I am so thankful for you and the rest of the ladies. It was wonderful. Thank you again!! You are a blessing.” Xoxo-J.R. from Michigan 2018

“Christina, I am so grateful and blessed to have had the opportunity to come to the 2018 Women’s Summer Solstice weekend retreat. I have never been on a trip by myself before so it was also an adventure. From the moment you greeted me at the door to the time I left, I felt as if I were a member of your family. Sharing time with you and Sandy was very special. I love that you both have that bond and work so well together. What your retreat offers to others is a priceless gift. The service providers were exceptional, each sharing their knowledge and skill to enhance the experience and bring everyone closer together. Not only do they work independently but also as a collective group with one goal in mind — to heal and restore others to achieve optimal wellbeing and overall wellness. I learned so much about myself and being free to open myself up to others without feeling threatened was so liberating! The bonds that I formed with a few of the women will stand the test of time. The peaceful serenity of the Shalom House and all of the nature trails around it just added to the experience. Hiking to the lake and watching the ducks swim fed my soul. I loved every aspect of this weekend, including the delicious meals. This weekend was life-changing for me. Thank you so much for everything! I will never forget it! May all of the joy you bring to others return to you ten-fold. Namaste!”- Janet from Chicago 2018

“I am so happy that I attended the Summer Solstice Retreat with Christina and 8 amazing intelligent women. This retreat opened my eyes and heart to my critical and judgmental self. I feel more aware that what I perceive on the outside is nowhere close to what lies inside the heart and soul. Every woman I met on this retreat had a beautiful heart and story that I connected with, regardless of age, race, experience, or religion. It is truly an amazing and profound experience to be completely vulnerable with female strangers and feel supported and held. The psychic medium was incredible and helped me close spiritual wounds so I could move forward towards healing. The house, location, food and services were wonderful. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone in need of spiritual healing. Thank you to Christina and Mama for providing me with nourishment and joy. Namaste”- M.F from Chicago 2018

“Thank you Christina for a great weekend. I love you and thank you for awakening a part of me that I didn’t even know existed.” Melissa 2018

“Thank you very, very much for offering this retreat, I am SO doing one again!! I stumbled across this retreat several months after having what I suppose is called a spiritual awakening. After a ton of reading about a variety of topics such as chakras and practicing meditation, I felt like there was something I should do, and this opportunity happened to find its way to me at just the right time. Funny thing was, after it was all paid for I was like “oh, no what did I get myself into!” It is not very characteristic of me to go all by myself to spend a weekend with a group of total strangers in an unfamiliar house in the woods! I was nervous at first and had even questioned to myself what am I going to get out of this, but after the discussions, it was pretty magical through the laughs and tears how much each of us had a little piece of everyone’s story as a part of their own in some way or another. It was as if that specific group of people was simply meant to be together at that specific time. There was SO much I took away from this experience, there aren’t enough words to even explain! The people were amazing, it’s pretty sweet how quickly friendships formed. The services included were out of this effing world! The knowledge and lessons taken way, the massage, bodywork, the conversations, meditations, tai chi, food, yoga, the homey comforts… wow, I needed this more than I thought! I loved the acupuncture so much I have already seen and have future appointments with Janet! I must say the most utterly profound experience was with Brenda the psychic medium. Holy tears! What she had channeled and shared with me, has changed me forever. I would have paid the price of this retreat JUST for that experience! I am not even kidding! This entire experience was beyond incredible. If you are reading this and wondering if you should go or if it is worth it, the answer is yes, yes, yes! If you are here, the Universe is telling you something, listen! You will never in a trillion years regret it! Thank you Christina, you are phenomenal! Many Blessings and Peace Profound!” -Stephanie 2017

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for a wonderful experience. I signed up with a feeling of desperation, as we were becoming empty nesters, my career feeling less than fulfilling and the idea of having only my husband to go home to every night dreadful. Once the week of the retreat came, I tried every excuse I could think of not to come, out of fear. What are these other woman going to be like, will I fit in, etc. Thankfully I got in my car and drove to the most beautiful, peaceful, fulfilling, difficult weekend of my life. The location is amazing, you, your mom and the service providers were so kind, real and giving. The ladies I shared my soul with were amazing and I learned a great deal about myself. I wouldn’t change a think about my experience and am very much considering making this a yearly event. Thank you for making it a wonderful experience, I feel truly enlightened, relieved and blessed.” Lori 2017

“Christina you rock!! I had a such a great awakening and learning experience on the summer solstice retreat. I feel that all of my paths have lead me to this retreat. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for offering this. The property was beautiful and peaceful. The hand picked services, group talks, activities seemed like the perfect mix to bring everything together. I met wonderful women in a safe environment. You are such an UBER smart educated woman that gladly shares you knowledge- it is much appreciated. I thought this was the end to my journey, but it really is a beginning. I learned so much and will take it with me forever. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone, it is so soo worth taking the time and money!!” -Lora in Wisconsin 2017

“I have been going to Dr. Christina’s Chakra retreats for the past 3 years now. I can honestly say the experiences from the retreats have changed my life in the most positive way. I keep coming because I feel so much spiritual growth in such a short amount of time. The retreats have been more beneficial to me than years of traditional counseling. I love the services that are offered: crystal healing, readings, yoga, etc. The women that come together at these retreats are amazing souls that I learn from as well. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in working on themselves for the greater good.” -Andrea from Minnesota 2016

“I don’t think I can thank everyone enough for everything! There’s a reason why this was my 3rd retreat and will not be my last! I’m truly grateful for all the hard work that goes into such an incredible weekend. It was wonderful to meet some new faces and to reconnect with familiar ones. Thank you everyone!!” Amanda from Wisconsin 2016

“Thank you so much for being the founder and of the facilitator of these chakra retreats. The fall equinox retreat was just what I needed and I am really glad I overcame my hesitation and attended the retreat. I’m grateful that a retreat like this exists within driving distance from where I live! I also wanted to thank you and your Mom for making retreat participants feel so welcome. I hope to attend another retreat led by you in the not too distant future.” Gita from Illinois 2016

“It was a real pleasure meeting you!! It was such a beautiful weekend! I am happy to say “I Feel, I See, and I Understand” things very differently in my environment…I am super excited about it!! I have been sharing it with all my close friends and family, I can’t wait to attend another sometime.”-Mary from Iowa 2016

“If you are looking for a weekend of redirection, healing and spiritual growth, Dr Christina Wilke-Burbach’s Women’s wellness retreat will be perfect for you. Dr. Christina is excellent teacher and knowledgeable in so many areas. The healers were awesome too and last but not least, Sandy kept our tummies full with yummy meals. I highly recommend it, it was definitely a reboot for me. “- Julie from Wisconsin, 2016

“I found the retreat after having a negative experience with a chakra reading near my hometown. I was hoping to get a more positive and different approach from a practitioner. I was also in need of a retreat from some difficult situations in my life the last few years. All of my hopes and expectations were surpassed! Christina is a very warm, open and caring practitioner who welcomed me and the other participants with open arms. She and her mother and sister Amanda provided a safe and comfortable atmosphere for all of us so we could unwind and find some inner balance while learning new spiritual concepts. The healing services on Saturday were spectacular! I left the retreat feeling refreshed, renewed and ready to take my spiritual journey to a deeper level. I felt supported and cared for by all of the women who attended the retreat. We quickly made friendships and plan to attend another one together next summer!” -Annemarie from Illinois 2016

“I’ve recently attended the Summer Solstice Retreat and it was wonderful. I happened to find it by chance. I’m so glad I followed my gut and went. This retreat definitely help me recharge my battery. I’ve learned a lot and meet nice people. Everyone was wonderful and well planned. Thank you to Dr Christina for all your help and insight. Thank you also to Sandy, Amanda, April, Linda, Gina, & Nikki.” -Marissa from Illinois 2016

“Since doing the retreat I feel like I have more clarity on what I’m suppose to be doing on my spiritual path. I also feel lighter energy wise and better in general.”-Trisha From Wisconsin, 2016

“The retreat was by far the best thing I had done for myself in a very long time. I went into the weekend with an open mind and left with an open heart. I left feeling an unbreakable bond among the women on the retreat. Christina is an extremely gifted person with an abundance of knowledge when it comes to a healthy mind, body and soul. She incorporates a variety of chakra exercises and techniques during the weekend to introduce each guest to something new. Her holistic approaches to well-being can be added to anyone’s ‘toolbox for life’. My feeling of connection and unity among the group was very powerful. In addition my feeling of connection and unity within myself was even more powerful. The retreat center inside and out was very comfortable and homey. All details of the experience were thought through for a truly unforgettable experience. The hardest part is making the commitment to put yourself first and I’m confident you will not regret it.”…..Nicole in Wisconsin 2015

“At the heart of universal sisterhood there is a healing mystery that has sadly been all but lost in our modern era. Caught up in our daily lives and living in separateness most find it difficult to fathom how a group of women, strangers to each other, could connect in deep, meaningful ways that can have a life-changing effect. However, through the work of Christina Wilke-Burbach and Mind, Soul and Self, that is exactly what is happening.” – H. Newberry in Iowa 2015

“A note of gratitude for the unique and resonating experience having attended the Women’s Autumn Equinox Chakra Retreat. My granddaughter and I shared the experience together. While coming from very different perspectives, it was a rich and rewarding time to share. There were several modalities each providing a unique opportunity to explore our inner being. The setting was beautiful, the staff delightful, and the participants, each there on their own journey, a wonderful group of women. I would encourage anyone seeking a time to explore, expand, or venture into themselves, this well planned and renewing program. You will love it!….Karen in Wisconsin 2015

“End of summer retreat was life changing for me. At the end of the weekend I felt like I had been friends with the other women for years. Dr. Christina and her Mother Sandy took such good care of us. The massage, acupuncture and crystal healing was fabulous as well as the wonderful women performing those services. I believe each one of us left on Sunday with answers we were seeking. The house was beautiful. The food delicious. I cannot wait to go back next year. I have been telling my friends we need to go next year. I highly recommend Dr Christina’s retreats!”…….Dawn in Wisconsin 2015

“This retreat did wonders for my mind and my soul. It provided me with a wonderful connection to other women! Amazingly it felt as if I had known them forever, even though we had just met. As a fairly reserved and private person, I found myself able to open up to these like minded souls as easily as I would a long time friend. The services and activities gave me a renewed sense of purpose and wonder. Many of the things I learned, I know that I will carry on into my daily life and continued journey. I would highly recommend this to anyone, whether one goes with a group of friends or individually. I strongly believe participants will create new connections, be refreshed, and leave with a new found peace to carry them along their journey, wherever the road may take them! Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!”….Athena in Wisconsin 2015

“From the moment I entered through the door, I sensed something was about to change. A group of women, all from different walks of life came together to be divinely lead through a whirlwind transformational experience. None of us knew what was in store, but trusted the process. I left knowing that even though the last three days were behind me, the experience will be with me for a lifetime. I was glad I traveled to Wisconsin for this opportunity to get in touch with myself again. I have missed her.”…..Cynthia in Illinois 2015

” I want to thank each of you for a wonderful weekend. I’m glad that the seven of us were on the “train” together as we set off on our journey through the chakras. I enjoyed travelling the main route and dipping into all the excursions along the way. Your individual perspectives into the different aspects we explored were insightful and made me stop and think. Special thanks to Christina who brought us all together. Your dedication to sharing your spiritual knowledge is inspiring and much appreciated. So, until we meet again … zip up those capes, engage your inner bubble, and secure your mirrored bubble. This train is ready for anything as we continue on our journey. Namaste.”….Linda from Wisconsin 2015

“Christina…Where can I start? How do you put in writing the feelings I have experienced over 3 short days? Your retreat has blessed me with brighter eyes, a sparkling heart, a glistening soul, and beautiful women I will be friends with for life! Your retreat is life changing and I will never forget what you have brought to my life! Miss you already!”…. Tammie from Wisconsin 2015

” Dr. Christina you rock! Thank you for shining your light so that we all may see the path we have set.”….Sheila from Illinois 2015

“Everything feels different in what used to be my “real” life. I’m aware now of my own energies and those around me, and as a result, work and home are very pleasant places to be. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who has found themselves reading this recommendation. If you are hesitating, it is worth the leap of faith! Christina is a master facilitator, and the experts she invited are amazing.”…..Bonnie S. Minnesota 2014

“Although I was really anxious about coming, I am so grateful I did. I met so many wonderful women (including Christina and her family) who I felt so much support from. It’s only been a few days since the retreat ended but I already feel like such a lighter person. I have always struggled with negative feelings and emotions which has led to pretty severe self confidence issues. During this retreat, I was given a lot of practical tools in which to keep the “trash thoughts” out of my head and have seen the results in the past few days. Another thing that made the retreat so wonderful was how open and warm Christina was to everyone in our group. She never judged anyone for anything that was said and gave a lot of helpful support to others. I also have to say Christina’s mother and sister also said several really encouraging things to both my sister and I and I really appreciate it. I would definitely recommend this retreat to every woman I know. EVERY woman could use a week-end like this!!”…….Hilary K. Madison, WI 2014

“Christina, you are one of the most incredible people I have ever met. Frankly, every day of my life will be different and better because of the changes you helped bring about in my life in this retreat. How can 2 words -‘thank you’ – begin to cover it! The woman I was before the retreat and the woman that left this beautiful retreat are very different — in the best and deepest possible ways. I made incredible connections and had life altering experiences that I know with absolute certainly will be with me always. I am so grateful to Christina, who is a bundle of high energy, personality++, deep knowledge, and FUN. This was simply an outstanding retreat.”…..Kathy from Appleton, Wisconsin 2013

“This was my second time attending one of Christina’s retreats, and just like the first one I had a great time! Christina and Sandy are so warm and inviting, truly wonderful women! Thank you for all you do!!!!! Christina does a great job of walking you through everything, answering questions, and really listening to what everyone was saying. You get a “workbook” filled with tons of information and everything that we had talked about with Christina, it’s a great tool that you get to take home with you. The meals were fantastic!!! A big THANK YOU to Elise, April, Jen, and Brenda!!! Thank you for your time and knowledge!!!! The sessions with these women were amazing! Meeting the other women who were attending the retreat was great, such big hearts in all of them! The Shalom House is so unique and the quietness of it really feels good, it’s so nice to get away from the noise of everyday life. This is such a great learning opportunity, you can really let yourself open up and not feel judged by anyone. I always leave feeling energized, intrigued, and smiling! Thank you!”…….Amanda R. Wisconsin Dells 2014

“In a time where we are bogged down with electronics and the need to constantly be in the know, it is sometimes critical to our well-being to get away from it all. Dr. Christina Wilke-Burbach offers a once in a lifetime experience to do exactly that – get away from it all and reconnect to yourself as well as other like-minded, amazing women. I have attended the retreat, twice, by myself, and I found it to be exactly what I needed at that moment in time. Both experiences were unique as each had a different set of amazing women who I treasure to this day. Christina and her co-facilitator, Sandy, welcome you with open arms. In a safe space of no judgment, you can share your life and know that you won’t be condemned. I highly recommend the retreat to any woman who is looking for an opportunity to get away, reconnect with herself and de-stress.”…Tina C., Iowa. 2014

“I truly enjoyed my time on the retreat, I got to meet some truly amazing women and learned a lot from them and from Christina. I enjoyed all the activities that were set up for us. I had a blast staying up late and just laughing, it felt like a sleepover back from when I was a kid. Thank you again for sharing all your knowledge that prepared me for my new journey in life with a new outlook on things. And, both you and your mom are awesome cooks! The food was delicious!”….Kari, Wisconsin 2013

“I had the pleasure of attending the Women’s Summer Solstice Chakra Retreat this past weekend. What a refreshing experience! The Shalom House was beautiful, the food was delicious and the women were wonderful. I was captivated and inspired as twelve women came together and shared their personal life experiences without knowing each other prior. Christina is a very talented woman and a strong leader. I came looking for answers and left with much more. I encourage anyone going through a difficult or transitioning time in their lives to take part in one of Christina’s upcoming wellness retreats. I will be coming back!”….Lauren 2013

“I feel more connected than I have for a very long time. I feel hopeful and less overwhelmed. I thank you all for that. Thank you so much Christina for creating an environment where women can come together and form such strong bonds. And thank you Sandy for raising such a wonderful woman”……Fiona P. Illinois June 2014

“Just want to Thank you again for an awesome weekend! We all really had a lovely time and will for sure get in contact with you again for stuff that arises in the future. We all got a lot out of it!”…..Cori R. Dec 2014

“What a spiritually uplifting experience. I learned more than I ever expected I would – not only about the content advertised but more about myself. I thought that the instructors worked very well and complimented each other nicely. Not only on a personal level but on a professional level. Your talents all shown through and allowed us to leave full of love and strength. WOW, I really can not express how much I enjoyed all of you.”
“Was enjoyable and informative. Felt wonderful healing energy and definite realignment of chakras. Wonderful group of ladies and energy. Must give all facilitators a 10 out of 10 rating. Made me feel very welcome. Were all very personable and supportive. Good feedback and advice. Felt very compassionate and caring energy from all and a genuine need to make sure thoughts and ideas were conveyed without confusion or misunderstanding.”

“Christina was extremely thorough. She was well-educated on the topics as well as having the ability to explain her topics. Being a beginner and walking in cold, I wouldn’t have asked for a more soothing and friendly host……with tons of tons of energy. I need people like this in my life.”
“I feel very blessed that I had the opportunity to get away from my life for a weekend to focus on me. Many things I learned this weekend were confirmations of things I already knew and was already working on, but it was good to learn that I’m on the right path.”

“I had an amazing experience! It changed my life in many ways, I have been more aware of things using my intuition and energy. I got more out the retreat than I expected. I felt so relaxed and amazed of how neat the experience was, once in a lifetime. The activities we all got a say in everything that we talked about and even gave me a different perspective on my own life. And even the topics.. I knew it was meant to be for me to be there. Definitely worth it because I got so much out of it! I would definitely go to more in the future if I could.”

“I don’t even know if I can put in to words just how fantastic Christina is! She has such a way of making you feel welcome and comfortable. I loved the way she had all the information put together for you and made it so easy to understand. She explained everything really well and answered any questions anyone had. Christina never judges anyone, and is willing to share things with everyone too. All of the activities she led were easy to follow and she didn’t rush through any of them, if anyone needed a break or if some one wanted to go off and kind of do their own thing, she was totally fine with that. The group activities and topics all meshed really well together. You can relate to one person if not everyone in one way or another and having the chance to speak to others who understand you and won’t judge you, just brings you closer together. I think it was great to be able to let some feelings out, we laughed, cried, and nodded in agreement about issues we all have or have had. Never did I feel pressured in to doing something. Christina’s personality her manor really makes you want to listen to her and try everything she is offering to you.

“I don’t know what else I would like to see, I loved everything about it. I thought that since it was all about learning the Chakra Systems, everything was covered really well. We went home with really great tools and information about our Chakras and how they work. The different meditations and different types of healing is all so interesting. It has made me want to just absorb every single bit of information I can about spirituality, intuitiveness, healing, past lives, and so much more! I want to learn everything I can, I just need to find a place to start! I just want to say what a wonderful experience this was for me, I am so happy to have made great friends who are like minded and want to learn as much as I do. I definitely want to do another retreat with all the wonderful, amazing, beautiful, and loving women again! Everything was great, I wouldn’t change anything at all. Thank you Christina for everything, I have a long path in front of me and I am excited to see what I find on it! With out your help I may never have made the choice to take this path in the first place.”

“Christina… what a sweet woman! She genuinely cared about each of us, and made me feel special with her interest in helping me answer my questions, etc. Yoga with Shawn – It was very relaxing, in fact I think I fell asleep for a bit during the last part-meditation. The intuitive readings were amazing. The readings were right on. I was skeptical, at first. Out of curiosity, I wouldn’t mind receiving readings from them in the future. I truly couldn’t believe their accuracy. They were blatantly honest but had great suggestions for further improvements.”


Testimonials from classes with Dr. Christina

I wanted to thank you, again, for your time and expertise yesterday. I left your office with so much motivation, inspiration and excitement – that I’m still reeling from it! ~ VR

Hi Christina! I want to tell you that I loved your class yesterday. I am thinking so many new thoughts because of it. ~ JD

The class yesterday was awesome! ~ P.S.C.

Thank you so much for all the valuable information you shared today. You are a great teacher! ~ J.Y.N.

“Each class I find doors opening within me. This one was no disappointment! Seeing auras, making smudge bundles, creating mandalas; uncovering layers of self. It was emotional. As the classes are done now, I won’t look at this as over but as the beginning. Thank you ladies for a great a six months and to Christina for your vibrant authentic self.”–Jenn from Wisconsin

“Thank You Christina for teaching such an enriching “Holistic Healing with Herbs” class! During the series of classes, in such a beautiful setting, I was learning and growing as a person at the same time. I really enjoyed the face to face class time. All the input from fellow classmates added to my education in all things herbal. The class was a comprehensive study of herbs and how and why they can be used in Holistic Healing. Not only that knowledge, but how to incorporate the safe and effective use of herbs in our business’s, professional and everyday lives. A highlight in each class was the hands-on part. Being able to actually do some of the things we were learning about in class was invaluable to me. Making herbal tinctures, smudge sticks, mandalas and so much more really enhanced the learning process and was such fun. Outside of class, homework activities brought the class to life. Growing the herbs, caring for them, helping them thrive and harvesting for their use was an exciting experience for this non-gardener. Wildcrafting and nature walks to identify herbs had me looking at the beauty of the nature that surrounds me in a whole new light. Thank you again sharing all your time and talents for the truly Holistic journey of healing with herbs!” —Donna B. RN, Illinois

“Before taking this series I didn’t really know how herbs could be applied to daily life. Christina’s class went well and above my expectations and I learned so much about herbs. Christina is very knowledgeable in the subject and often offered information about other forms of healing that could be used with herbal medicine or in addition to herbal medicine. Christina was always available for questions outside of the classroom and made the classes fun and enjoyable. I now feel confident using herbs in my everyday life and helping others using herbs as well. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is interested in herbalism.” —Trisha from Wisconsin

I took Christina’s Professional Aromatherapy Certification course and it was so much more than I had anticipated. I loved how truly holistic her course is as we went into the clinical, emotional, metaphysical, and mental uses of essential oils. I went into the course thinking I was going to learn the basics on essential oils but I came out with having learned how to be a well rounded holistic professional. Christina, having a Phd is Health Psychology, was able to give us a viewpoint on the many uses of aromatherapy in a way many people could not have. On top of that, she has been expanding her practice for many years. I felt very lucky to have such an educated teacher passing along her knowledge to me. She is very dedicated to educating and molding confident and safe practicing professionals. In addition, we learned emotional and spiritual techniques that turned out to be so useful in my practice. Mind. Soul. Self. allowed my healing practice to be what I have always wanted it to be….TRUE Holistic wellness. I highly recommend this course to anyone willing to open their minds and break old thought patterns. Once I did, I was able to gain the tools I needed to be a confident wellness practitioner. -Steph, Madison, WI

Prior to level 1 certification I was using essential oils for over 2 years, like a large majority of users I figured I knew the all about the world of essential oils. However I was wrong! This course taught me so much more than EO’s it introduced me to the world of botanical healing. In this series she teaches the safest and most effective ways to use aromatherapy to help not only the body but the mind and spirit as well. It also taught me how precious essential oils are and how important it is to respect them and use them responsibly. This course will show you a whole new way of thinking about health care for you and your family. Anyone who loves essential oils or has been curious about aromatherapy should definitely take this course. What I love most is not only has this course left me with a solid foundation in holistic aromatherapy but it also gives me a very valuable resource. Dr Christina is in my opinion one of the most valuable resources the aromatherapy industry has. Her teaching style is causal but very informative she is very easy to talk to and is there for me when advice is needed. If for some reason she doesn’t have the answer she will provide you with the proper resources to find the answer which I have found to be a rare trait these days. I am proud to say I have studied under and know her. Thank you Dr Christina for all of your hardwork and dedication in prepare this course please never stop doing what you do! -Drew Moss, Main Street Massage, Sioux City South Dakota

I began taking aromatherapy classes with Christina because I have always been interested in essential oils. I am a registered yoga teacher and have attended a few yoga classes where the instructor used oils during Savasana or diffused them in the room during class. I thought it would be fun to learn more about essential oils, so that I could use them in my classes. After the first aromatherapy class, taught by Dr. Christina Wilke-Burbach, I was hooked! I found all of the information and hands(nose)–on learning useful and profound. As the classes progressed, I began teaching a yoga class using essential oils that I blended. The response from my students was positive and they started to ask me if I sold my blends. This sparked the idea to create my own business and now, I create different essential oil blends and self-care products. I also offer aromatherapy consultations for those that are looking for an intuitive and personal approach to creating therapeutic essential oil blends. I am very thankful to Christina! Holistic Aromatherapy classes have opened doors for me both personally and professionally! ~ Namaste ~ Melissa D. Registered Yoga Instructor Oconomowoc, WI

Participating in the series ” Holistic Healing with Aromatherapy” was a very meaningful experience for me as an individual, and as someone who is always seeking to learn and grow as an energy practitioner. Taking this series has enhanced my life in more ways than I thought possible. Healing myself and helping others to heal themselves through essential oils was just part of it. The use of essential oils has enhanced intuitive abilities within me, opened my heart to become more compassionate, and brought forth a deeper appreciation of Gods beautiful creation- nature, and all it has to offer us. I will never look at plants, trees, flowers and grasses the same way again! Christina passes on her love of working with the essential oils to her students, making every class interesting, fun and uplifting. She is a wealth of knowledge and it is apparent to all who study with her, that she truly enjoys imparting her wisdom and watching her students evolve and grow. -Moira D. L.P.N.

I highly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in learning the health benefits of aromatherapy! I took away experience that will last me a lifetime! – Connie T. CNA, RMT, Juneau, WI

I highly recommend the Aromatherapy Certification to anyone who is searching for a small class size, personal attention, lots of resources, learning opportunities in and out of the classroom, a comprehensive course curriculum, and having a very knowledgeable instructor who is dedicated to making sure you have fun and succeed. I always anticipated each class; I loved the thought-provoking class discussions, class activities, and of course learning about the healing properties of essential oils! Aromatherapy is without a doubt a staple in my business and personal life. Thank you Christina! -Robyn P. LMT, Milwaukee, WI.

Thank you Mary for bringing Christina Wilke-Burbach, PhD, to Rochester, MN! Having the classes at your Wind Over Fire Healing Arts Center was a delight! Because these classes delve into so much information about Essential Oils, I am now better able to discern which products truly affect me physically and why—ultimately I can avoid contact with them. Experiencing and using Essential Oils is a process of looking forward, learning more, and then being able to incorporate the oils into my own Integrated Health Practices. -Norrie L. MacIlraith, RN, BSN, MS, CNS, TH, HTP. Rochester, MN

Anyone interested in learning how to use essential oils safely and responsibly should seriously consider learning from Christina Wilke-Burbach. I was impressed with her expertise and practical approach to using essential oils. She presents the material in a professional yet informal way that allows everyone to share, ask questions and receive hands on experience. I know there are many books and materials available for those who want to know more about using oils, however, for those who want to use essential oils on themselves, friends, or family or to incorporate the use of aroma therapy with other alternative modalities, I highly recommend you take Christina’s classes. Not only will you feel more comfortable blending and using essential oils, but you will come away from the classes realizing just how much more there is to learn. I found myself anxious to learn more from Christina. She has a wonderful sense of humor and makes learning fun. I admire her enthusiasm and appreciate the great amount of time and research she put into the written materials, including valuable and reliable resources for further reading and references. The Level I classes were quite an eye opener for me and I am extremely honored to have had the opportunity to learn from Christina. She is an exceptional woman who whollistically lives and breathes what she teaches. -Pamela Barnes. Reiki Master Teacher, Iowa

Explore the ancient mystical glimmering of nature and science. Healing with Essential Oils is a great resource of a world forgotten. But our spirit has not, thus enters educator and Light worker, Dr. Christina Wilke-Burbach, who is a scholar, teacher and a practioner of clinical and intuitive Aromatherapy, has created a thoughtful and honest course(s) for the sole purpose of changing lifestyles, beliefs and old habits into methods of facilitated healing. My discovery of holistic healing has begun with the art and science of caring for the whole person – body, mind and spirit, through Aromatherapy certification 101-104. Western medicine is embracing this value of Palliative Care, that is respecting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient. These medicines of the earth are not only for the medical community, but are a timeless apothecary for our families and community. Christina is professional in every aspect of instruction. Her heart and motivation to build a better tomorrow is with warm roots and refreshing energy. Thank you Christina for passing on the sciences of Herbology and Aromatherapy. -Laura M Hartert, Mayo Hospital, Rochester, MN

Regarding Level 1 and Level 2 Aromatherapy with Christina Wilke-Burbach, Ph.D.… After taking both of the Healing with Aromatherapy Intensives Levels 1 and 2, I am impressed with the depth of knowledge that Christina has regarding these magnificent gifts of nature known as essential oils. It is unfortunate that they are not better understood for their medicinal properties, and are confused with perfumery and scented candles. The oils are the essential life-force of each of the plants and as such, have the medicinal properties of each plant. It is beyond aromatherapy into botanical therapy! These classes are not just about dispensing oils to work on something symptomatic in an individual’s body, but learning about the organic chemistry or the chemical composition of the oils, their uses and effect on the body. We covered safety precautions based on science and chemical reactions, and science-based ethical standards of practice. And considering all these factors, how these oils can work with an individual holistically by taking into consideration ALL that is going on with each person. It is a true form of individualized treatment! What you will learn in these classes far exceed the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) requirements. Her course work is amazing and thorough and is for every healing practitioner serious about working in a holistic way with clients and patients” -Mary Laven, Executive Director of Wind over Fire Healing Arts Center, Rochester, MN.

I have been blown away by the series 1 and 2 classes for Clinical Aromatherapy Certification. Never before have I been so excited about learning. Christina is an amazing teacher who inspires us all to be our best selves. The class was very in depth and informative, yet fun and light. Thank you so much Christina. -Ann Fothergill, Registered Dental Hygienist, Milwaukee, WI

I became interested in Essential Oils and read so much different types of advice on using them. The more I read the more confusing things became. I began searching for some type of class to learn safety and they always seamed to lead to someone selling a mass marketing product. I really wanted to learn from someone not pushing anything which led me to Christina. I signed up for level one… I have to say the knowledge I gained from her is invaluable.. Her classes were well planned and fun! I highly recommend learning from someone with a passion for safety and sharing her vast knowledge with her students. -Nancy Yaeger, Wisconsin
