Christina Allen is the founder and owner of Blue Raven Circle of Light Healing Center and was the former owner of Ashtanga Yoga Center East and Blue Raven Yoga and Healing Center of San Marcos.
Her original training was as a Physicist at UCSC and then as a Neuroscientist at the Salk Institute (MS from UCSD). She was keenly interested in the interface between matter and consciousness. When her mother died of cancer in 1994 she found herself standing at the gates that separate the worlds. Knowing she had stepped outside the acceptable realm of scientific inquiry she decided to pursue her quest for knowledge through spiritual disciplines, leaving the world of academics to journey to India and eventually Peru.
Chris is a Lightbody Healer trained in the ancient traditions of the Quero indians of Peru. She teaches Lightbody Healing as part of the senior teaching staff for the Four Winds Society. She has been practicing the art of shamanic healing, or Soul Healing, that quintessential interface between matter and consciousness, since her training with shaman, medical anthropologist, and psychologist Dr. Alberto Villoldo, PhD, began in the spring of 2003. Through her shamanic training she has picked up the art of Animal Communication (she owes great gratitude to Shanti and her feline four-legged teachers at home) for their patience. Her Reiki practice started in 1999.
Chris brings compassion, integrity, caring, humor and grace to her teaching and healing sessions. She opens her arms and heart to all who are willing to embark on the journey of self-transformation and personal evolution.
