Christine DeCristofaro

Christine is our Group Retreats Director, teacher, and co-creator of many of our Ratna Ling Retreats and Programs. A former corporate finance consultant for Fortune 500 Companies, Christine left all of that behind in 2009 to pursue her true love – being in service and she has never looked back.

Christine is a passionate listener, truth seeker, fearless warrior against guilt and shame, and feels blessed to live a life where she helps others touch the infinite wisdom that lives inside each of us. Christine believes heath and wellness are achieved with awareness of our full potential and taking steps to integrate it: mind, body and spirit. She loves supporting others along their journey by drawing from her experiences as:

  • Transpersonal Psychotherapist (LMFT #90718)
  • Civil and Family Law Mediator specializing in conflict resolution communication techniques
  • Certified Yoga Instructor (200 RYT) with a focus on Yoga Meditation and somatic release for optimum healing
  • Intuitive Counselor and Healer

Exclusively at Ratna Ling, Christine offers Spiritual Attunements: a transformative, intuitive, and spiritual counseling session that will help you enhance your inner wisdom, receive clarity, improve all relationships, and heal yourself of emotional/physical problems.  You can expect to feel lighter, clearer, peaceful, loving, and empowered.  See our Wellness Center page to book an appointment or email Chris at publicrelations@ratnaling.org to schedule a free 15 minute telephone consultation.
