Christine is an adventurous spirit and world traveller with a deep desire to contribute to positive change and higher consciousness in the world. She is the founder of conversABLE, a global empathy movement and organization based in Costa Rica, that shares the principles and practices of NonViolent Communication through trainings, mediation, consultancies, and life coaching. She is also the co-founder of Wondermore, an introspective travel initiative that facilitates community-based travel to exotic places through the concept of inner journeys, outside.
After receiving a Psychology and International Relations degree at NYU, Christine got her Masters degree in Medical Anthropology at SOAS University of London and lived and worked in India, El Salvador, Argentina, the U.S. and finally Costa Rica. Her experience has facilitated her work with actors as diverse as the Costa Rican government, the United Nations, and vulnerable communities. Convinced of the power of empathy, her vision is to facilitate a critical mass of empathy activists that are transforming society, one relationship at a time.
At Envision Christine will be leading a practical workshop about the deep inner work of Transforming Enemy Images (of ourselves and others) to build a more compassionate world. Whether its the way we relate to our partner, business or families, learning tools to engage in dialogue and understanding across the differences that breed violence, is at the core of creating the compassionate world that we dream of being a part of.
