Through her speaking, Christina reveals how key shifts in our thinking can enable us to draw closer to one another, taking up the good burdens of local work and responsibilities. She writes about the value of focus, making space to create, and the meaning we find in more limited connections. She challenges the Western values of power, control, and success, revealing how wonder, trust, and discipline are central to the experience of being human and the keys to our joy. Christina’s overarching passion is to advocate for a human-centered future, one that embraces weakness, recognizes the mess and fruit of relationship, and values embodiment.

what people are saying
"I recently had the privilege of moderating a panel that Christina participated in for Ivy League students. She brought a high level of professionalism to the panel, as well as a wealth of knowledge in the field of journalism. She is undoubtedly an expert in her field, and is a pleasure to work with and learn from!”

“I love how present you were. It means a lot when someone comes and really embraces the event and delves deep into connecting with people."

"Thank you for last night. We loved your talk. It hit the mark on every level and was just the perfect thing we were looking for. My leadership team met for a brief de-brief after. This was our last Leaders Circle, breaking for the summer and re-convening in the fall, so we felt it was the highlight of the year and a great way to go out with a huge bang. Everything you said was so rich and full. I would like to explore possibly bringing you up to Ottawa for something larger in 2017."
- Terry Long, Founder, Quiet Pools Leaders Circle, Ottawa
