You will be introduced to:
Soul Seeding Mindful Prayer Practices: Create new Mindful Prayer Practices that will embrace and ignite your creative soul.
Forgiveness Ceremony: Find freedom in a forgiveness ceremony as we let go of the past and open to future possibilities of Elderhood.
Everyday Sacred: A simple shift of perception that illuminates the Sacred in every day. Start each day afresh and find gratitude at the end of the day, that extraordinary things have come our way.
Your Mantra for 2023: A guided visualization will help you choose a Mantra of the year with the potential to bring clarity and focus to who you want to become and what you want to accomplish as a Wise Woman. A carefully chosen Mantra is a type of mental mentor — something to help us stay motivated as we move toward our intentions for 2023.
The Master Mind Principle: Discover the many gifts and surprises of the Master Mind Principle. When two or more are gathered, there is a third, invisible and intangible force known as the ‘Master Mind’ or as some of us rather say ‘The Soul’.
New Year’s Women’s Portal and Path…Seeking Your Soul’s vision and vitality in your ‘Wisdom Years’
With Chris Flynn
December 30, 2022-January 1, 2022
Join other Christine Center Wise Women, Elders, and Crones in this sacred gathering space in this landscape of later life. Open to a year of passion and purpose by following the wisdom of your soul. Journey with us into a creative cauldron where we are seeding dreams, activating depth, balance, emergence, wisdom, and rebirth.
In this five-part weekend retreat we will weave together with other like-minded elders to dive deeper to design a life in 2023 with conscious attention and creative inspiration. Experience the intimacy and trust that is forged in a safe and sacred circle.
When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.
~Jean Shinoda Bolen
Chris has been facilitating heart-centered groups for over 50 years.
She creates Sacred Spaces where people feel safe and comfortable expressing and sharing what’s in their hearts and minds.
From the Consciousness Raising of the 60’s, to The Course in Miracles of the 70’s, all the way up to present day, she has always invited participants to get out of their heads and into their hearts, and to speak from their own personal experience.
In the 1980’s she worked as a lay-minister and outreach coordinator for several Unity Churches. In the 1990’s she completed her Masters in Metaphysical Pastoral Counseling and was ordained as a non-denominational minister. She founded Conscious Connections Community, where she facilitated weekly groups and retreats. Her groups and workshops were closely affiliated with Unity, Unitarian, and Science of Mind churches.
For many years, Chris volunteered on the Suicide Prevention hotline. Then, in 2014, Chris joined her local Hospice Grief Support team. Seeing the need for community, beyond what Hospice could provide, she formed the New Horizons Community for widows and widowers. This group has been meeting via Zoom for three years. Her groups have included: Loss in the Second Year, The Five Invitations, Friday Family Check-in, Grief in the Time of Covid, The Artist’s Journey through Grief, Grief in the Holidays, and It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again.
As a Catholic youth, Chris had the ability to “blur her eyes,” and see what the priests and nuns really meant. Now, at 75, and a student of the Tao, those early perceptions have come full circle, fortifying her concept of creating Sacred Spaces for personal and group growth.
From The Tao of Leadership: Verse 37.
Doing Little. Selfless gives one center.
Center creates order.
When there is order, there is little to do.
Chris lives in the California Redwoods with her husband and Saint Bernard. Six years ago, while visiting her Wisconsin relatives, she discovered the Christine Center and immediately found her spiritual home. She has attended many of the Christine Center’s virtual classes, the weekly Tao group, plus, last year she attended in person, The Tao in the Summer. Through ‘Quantum Connecting via Zoom’ (thank you Sr. Gabe), Chris enjoys her deep connection with the Christine Center community.
