Christina's Journey:The story behind a Leader
Christina was born and grew up in a 6-member Greek-Cypriot refuge family in the South part of the island of Cyprus. As a child she was quite introverted yet very expressive and multitalented, spending many hours in nature, painting and listening to music. Born with a slight disfunction in the lower part of her body, caused her suffering from severe pain attacks on her legs and difficulties on mobility during her earliest years. Although she diligently followed and received several treatments given by doctors during her childhood, she had no great results. Without knowing at that time, she was practicing mindfulness meditation and steadily diminished pain and healed totally this issue, transforming not only her health but the whole physical appearance of her body.
During her 20's she had two peak experiences of depression, that were catalysts for her desire and intention to work on her emotional & mental domain in order to find true happiness within. By understanding her condition in a personal and transpersonal level, and by investigating the psychological and metaphysical issues around it, she offered herself the opportunity to heal and become the person she came here to be and not the person she was conditioned to be by the constrains and corruption of society, religion and educational system. Even if this process took a long way through, many times along the way, Christina realized and understood that every answer and every solution she used to seek was already within her own Self. Therefore she learnt to seek within all the answers to questions which were created from external factors in her everyday life, relationships, experiences and interactions, while shifting challenges into great discoveries.
From a very young age she was drawn into arts, energy, spirituality and metaphysics. At the age of 13 she enrolled herself in a Music School and attended classes in Art & Design. She loved to study science, mathematics, psychology and books on self-development. She was a compassionate listener towards adults’ concerns in her family environment and a vivid entertainer for her classmates at school. She decided to travel to different countries in order to study singing and performance, motivated by her quest to know and communicate the world through her own eyes, and her desire to discover herself through creative forms of expression. By the age of 27 she became internationally acclaimed in the field of Performance Art, which enabled her to bring all forms of expression into one.
Within a 10-years career in the art world, Christina was awarded with a special prize and produced an enormous body of work in an international scale as a visual artist, curator, educator, researcher, writer, artistic & managing director, creative entrepreneur, cultural worker, producer and founder of a non-profit organization & an award winning festival. Even though her artistic endeavors were quite successful, she was feeling that something was missing, besides the success and recognition from her surrounding world, and the various and expansive possibilities around her. Deep inside she was longing for a deeper connection with her own Self and the divine presence she was experiencing, mainly during her live performances. She wanted to understand and explore that part of the whole experience more.
At the peak of her career as an artist she decided to listen to her deepest desire of her Soul and draw her attention on her self-development and healing, accepting only a few invitations to perform. It was not easy to bring a closure to something so successful, although Christina didn't want to be labeled by something that was not her entire essence. She felt that she has much more to give. She felt a greater power guiding her through this journey. She studied intensively and has been trained by some of the most respectful teachers and trainers, becoming a certified practitioner in many areas and subjects including yoga, tantra, meditation, healing, nutrition, permaculture, metaphysics and transpersonal psychology.
Christina's desire to connect with her true essence, the Self, and simultaneously transmit authenticity and truth through her actions, art, initiatives and teachings, led her into a long journey of self-inquiry and transformation within the various fields she immersed herself. Consequently, her experience and knowledge across various areas and fields enabled her to bring a vast number of practices and methods together, alongside her own inventions, born through her personal experience, in order to create an innovative formula for self-transformation. On the other hand, working diligently with her self, brought her own rebirth, knowing that this is the best gift she could offer to the world and the best way to heal others: by starting with one'e self first. Therefore, through the expansion of her inner knowledge and the ongoing discovery of her own Self, Christina created the pioneering SenseSelfEssence, which is offered internationally through residential & online courses, retreats and trainings.
Christina's challenging yet transformational phases in her life, made her realize, every time, that what we seek is already within our Self. Therefore she learnt to transcend sadness into moments of bliss and therefore experience contentment in her everyday life, while manifesting and living her dreams, and continuously expanding through her ongoing personal evolution and spiritual awakening. Her desire is to share these gifts with the world, her students and followers, through her signature programs under the umbrella of SenseSelfEssence, and guide people into their ultimate path and highest potential as sovereign and realized beings.
