Meet Christine

Beautiful Seeker of Joy,

If there are a lot of good things in your life, and yet you still don’t feel an abundance of joy, if life has turned into a never ending to-do list, if you sometimes don’t like or recognize the person you’ve become, if it feels like it takes too much energy to stay positive, you are in the right place. Or maybe you hide your joy to try to make others more comfortable, quiet it to avoid being judged, self-sabotage to keep a lid on your joy, or feel guilty because of all the pain in the world.  If that’s the case, I am here to give you complete permission to shine your joy brightly, for the greater good of all. Or maybe you simply want to feel more overflowing joy that isn’t dependent on what’s happening outside of you. Whatever the reason, I’m thrilled you’re here — WELCOME!

Infinite Love and Gratitude,
