Apprenticing Sensitives, Intuitives, Empaths, Healers and Light workers

  • Sep 28, 2014 · 2:00 PM

(This is a description of a service not a meetup.We do have meetups on our page).

Whether you are a veteran, novice or intermediate, Chriss can help you on your personal, soul and professional path in developing, refining, transforming and strengthening your vibration (and your medicine).

Chriss is uncanny in ability to connect with and to see what is, what's off, what's missing, and in assisting the next step. Healers and sensitives of all kinds have benefited from working with chriss, affecting their lives in every dimension, from personal to professional and emotional and spiritual.

In my first visit it was clear to me that Chriss was an angel, a soul I had manifested to be an ally in my life journey. I signed up for 3 months worth of sessions and little did I know how transformational they would be. In the 12 weeks I gained so much knowledge about myself, my patterns, health, culture, communication, and how to listen to my spirit and intuition. I went through a lot of unlearning and relearning, unloading and nourishing, thanks to his gentle yet empowering guidance, meditation, and shamanic medicine and energy work. He has such a strong desire for others to reach their optimum health mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. He has vast amounts of information that he is always happy to share. I have gained so much from working with him and will never be able to go back to the defeated person I used to be."

"From the start, you saw right through. I couldn't get away with anything with you. Every type of healer I had been to over the past 2 decades were nothing compared to you, your work and what You helped me do with my life. Thank you immensely."

“You are the amazing one – a true healer, a grand spirit who has helped me to see the TRUE nature of my spirit and in doing so, you set me free.”

"Working with Chriss is like having an exceptionally skilled and capable mirror in my life advocating for me. I felt held in compassion and safe within to share myself because of the safe space he held for me to be heard. Experiencing his energy medicine was like the sensation of being enveloped back inside the womb and I felt I could see, feel and experience being in an experience of Divine Love. He is the most powerful mirror I have had of what true unconditional love really is and through him, I learned to really love and respect myself and hold compassion for who I am, instead of living in shame, regret and judgment of myself. I am able to really understand and know myself and frame my “story” in a light of the beautiful being that I AM because Chriss helped me to realize and live my truth. Chriss is a true healer, compassionate heart, and friend on my journey through life.”

“Chriss’s presence in my healing has helped me to regenerate renewal and energy into my life. In the physical realm, I have experienced a dramatic decrease in inflammation, pain and sluggish metabolism/ energy through Chriss’s Reiki healing. Spiritually, his counseling has opened up a true “awakening” in me and this awakening has given birth to a lifelong commitment to a right and true relationship with the universe. The space that Chriss creates for his clients is a safe haven in which to open up in. Because of this, I have been able to work through past hurts, patterns of behavior, and reignite a deep compassion for myself and others. Through deep listening and fruitful counseling methods, he has helped me to be an active participant in my healing process. Being in the presence of such a spirit as Chriss has helped me to begin the process of freeing my mind from years of self-judgment, guilt and shame. The benefits of this practice have revealed so many new possibilities in my life. His gentle soul serves as a “mirror” to mine and this mirroring has helped to facilitate deep self realization, opening of awareness, and connection to my source. In my experience, his healing abilities have gone beyond what we normally look to in therapy or energy healing and transcended into a very effective transformative healing of my mind, body and spirit.”
