Meet Your Facilitators:

Christine Volkmer, RScP
Now in my sixth decade, I have traveled a long road with no road map…starting with how to leave an unconscious marriage, and a faith that no longer worked for me, to a new life as a lesbian mom, raising six boys with my partner, all while drowning in fear of losing my kids, my mind, my job, and pretending I didn’t have a ridiculous problem with low self-esteem. I battled guilt for the pain those around me experienced as I learned to use my voice and make a choice for a life that called me. And all of their pain, real or imagined, ran around inside my body manifesting as one health issue after another. I survived with the help of a therapist, but I learned to thrive with spiritual tools that shifted the ground of my being, my perspective, and my ability to work through emotions and emerge with a deeper sense of me, of my true Self. I bring my passion for teaching, spirituality, coaching, connection, and personal growth with a holistic approach to just about everything I do. Learning to live FROM that place is the game changer I love to share.
