A NOTE FROM CHRISTINA

Happy New Year! While it’s a difficult time in the world for many (Xmas and even New Year celebrations were restricted here in Canada) … I still love the energy of a brand new year, no matter what growing pains are happening. I posted this on social media and am now sharing it here in… Read more »


A NOTE FROM CHRISTINA

Christina Merkley's garden in Metchosin on Vancouver Island with resident Buddha statue

Fall is here in the Pacific Northwest, and with it comes much-welcomed rains, after a fiery summer. In between Zooms with clients and students, I tend my little garden, readying it for winter. I have a bounty of tomatoes and red potatoes, tiny yet delicious. The herbs, chard and radishes should hold up for a… Read more »


A Note From Christina:

Note from Christina merkley exploring Vancouver Island British Columbia

I hope you and yours are doing ok during these shift times. As I draw thoughts and feelings out of folks from across the world, I see a lot of different circumstances. Some are having the best of times. Some are having the worst of times. And the majority, like myself, are somewhere in between. Our… Read more »


[VISUAL COACHING] WE SIT WITH CRAZY

Social media of course being a double edged sword. However its the useful and truly social side… Read more »


My Growing Wall

In between Covid restrictions, I got a photographer into my studio lair.

BIRDS EYE OF MY RECENT WORK

At My Digital Station

Fifteen years ago, I had to make a decision about the naming of my practice. It was between Graphic Coach and SHIFT-IT Coach. I chose the latter. At the time, I wasn’t sure if I had made the right decision.  Now I know I did. I chose SHIFT-IT Coach as I felt it had greater… Read more »


Sitting with Corruption

My oneness (nondual) practice has increased since the pandemic hit. Not only am I holding space for Inquiry with others (though my Process PopUps and Visual Satsangs), I’m holding it for me too.  Also getting my teacher’s help when I need it too. The entry point for Conscious Inquiry is always whatever is most up… Read more »


The Good and the Scary About Tech

A few years ago I wrote a blog post with some musings around technology and its impact on Process Professionals (those of us who do process work of various kinds with groups and/or individuals). Now with the Covid-19 pandemic … the rate of speed of adaption of tech for regular citizens is accelerating.  What I… Read more »
