What would your life
be like if you could
reclaim your creativity?

Christina

Just for a moment....

 

Take yourself back to a time when you felt free and imagine yourself playing, building, dismantling, and thinking wildly and unconventionally. More than likely, this was a time when you worried less about correctness and accomplishment and more about expression and creation. 

Remembering who we are as part of the natural world is key to returning to and sustaining our creativity.

 

The natural world awaits you.

Learning & Creating Together

It is my mission to inspire writers of all levels to explore their relationship with the natural world, so that they remember their place in all things, so that their creative endeavors are rich and meaningful.

Writing is a powerful way to activate creativity, heal from busyness and worry, and contribute to the larger discussion of what it means to be human.

In partnership with the University of San Diego (UCSD)  and with the Olympic Mountain EarthWisdom Circle (OMEC)

I teach courses in poetry and nature-inspired creativity. 

And I am always open to exploring new partnerships.

Being part of an encouraging writing community is sometimes all it takes to get a project started or see it to its completion. Time and again, I hear from course participants that writing together in an inspiring and supportive atmosphere, gives them the extra support, and permission, to remember their innate gifts. Groups meet two times a month on zoom.

1:1 SUPPORT

One of the most profound lessons I have learned from the natural world is that we are all connected. Everyone. and everything. I invite you to work with me to deepen your writing practice, to help with editing, to get support and clear blocks, and/or collaborate on a specific project.

Christina provides a remarkably simple and effective means to connect with the natural world in ways that inspire, enlighten, and challenge. Anyone concerned for the fate of our planet will be deeply changed by the experience and creatively spurred to hopeful actions.

Fall 2022 Cohort

A wonderful, inspiring and insightful class. Christina is very helpful, well-organized and supportive. I loved the fact that I felt very safe in the class, no pressure to perform which had an effect of actually diving deeply into something I would have otherwise never tried. I highly recommend this class!

 Christina introduced several important techniques to get the mind and body in a state where creativity flows and writing followed naturally. She skillfully led our geographically dispersed group over videoconference and facilitated discussions where everyone participated and learned from each other. It was a beautiful experience and I plan to do it again.

Paying attention is a form of reciprocity with the living world, receiving the gifts with open eyes and open heart.
