Creator of TantraPath (since 2006)
Over the last 18 years, alongside her own inner work, her vision is to empower human beings towards a path of self-realization to realize their true nature through the practice of Presence and Love. Her passion is in guiding people back to their power, realise who they are, and explore the depths of themselves from the source of love and consciousness, and also help them see parts of themselves that they haven’t seen or loved before and catalyse deep shifts in them.
The Awaken Your Heart of Being program is a Self-realization journey of living fully awake with a deep acceptance of who you are as openness, pure awareness, and love; and the Emotional Intimacy Spiritual Process Guidance program emerged as her main psycho-spiritual offering in response to the needs of the people in her private practice. The process is a self-inquiry to their reactive emotions, conditioned patterns and false beliefs, to heal their inner child, and meet their shadow with love and compassion, as the path to wholeness and living fully human.
Christina approaches her path with compassion and grace, and is always inspired by the way the universe opens up for her to expand and deepen her work as her journey continues to unfold so that she may help others. Her life is a devotion to love and consciousness, the essence of which comes through in her daily sadhana (spiritual practice), her life experiences and her work, to walk the delightful path of Tantra.
At age 30, she began her journey in discovering her purpose in life and finding her spiritual path. She was given the name ‘Rohanna’ by her spiritual master C.F.Raman, which means transformation and elevation. And ‘Rukmini’ was the name given by her yoga master, Swami Srinivasananda, which means radiance of pure, spiritual light of the Divine and Self-realization. Her names signified that her divine work in the world was to take her gift of inspiring and guiding others develop their creative potential towards reaching their spiritual awakening and self-realization. Her main teacher is nature and life – the perfect manifestation of spontaneous surrendering, flowing and unfolding.
Christina has been a student of various indigenous spiritual traditions for over sixteen years. She has studied with many profound teachers and awakened masters in Huna, Kriya, Veda, Yoga, Ayurveda, Tao, Tantra, Kashmir Shaivism, Inner Child Work, Shadow Work, Soul Work and now in Tibetan Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta.
