As a liturgist and ritual designer, Christine gained experience at Trinity United Methodist Church, a progressive, nature-affirming congregation, where she wrote original liturgy for worship, organized the Women's Spirituality group in 2000-2001, and co-facilitated the weekly earthbound nature-based service. Through the Reclaiming tradition, she has taught public workshops on various kinds of spiritual practice and self-development work. Currently, she is an initiate of a religious witchcraft tradition and practices privately with a small group. Christine's interests and knowledge of Pagan and occult traditions range widely and include Thelema and ceremonial magick as well as a variety of forms of witchcraft.
As of December 2008, Christine is also a licensed massage therapist, having completed a 500-hour program of training at the Lauterstein-Conway School of Massage. She continues to enjoy this very physical modality for her healing work.
She lives in the Boston area.
