About

IMG_1767Walking With Your Divine Self was born out of the love of four things: spending time in nature, walking in a thoughtful way, travel and coaching.  Together with my friend, Susan Baghdadi, I had a dream to combine those loves into adventures around the world. We started off walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain back in 2010, and now offer a variety of retreats and workshops.  Because it’s always more fun to play with friends, we invite various fellow coaches to join in on the fun from time to time.  You can learn more about Susan and our pals on the various events pages, but here’s a little bit more about me:

EGY_6189cMy name is Christina Brandt, and I’ve been coaching and teaching in one form or another since I was very young.  After spending over 20 years in corporate life, working with colleagues to develop their potential, create great relationships, and have more fun, I decided to set out on my own. Now, I get to wear more comfy clothes and walk barefoot a lot more often while connecting with people in a powerful, yet peaceful way, guiding them through the process of self-discovery.

Looking back, there have been pivotal moments – labyrinth-like turns – that brought me here: About eight years ago, I found myself sitting on a hay bale in a field one starry night, having a beer and talking with friends about what we were meant to do in the world.  The first word that surfaced in me was “walk.”  I wanted to walk in so many places in the world, and I wanted to deepen my connection to the earth, with others, and to Spirit.  I’d learned about landscape design along the way, and found myself constantly drawing winding, circuitous paths in the blueprints of my design projects.  One of my instructors said “You really like labyrinths, don’t you.”  And I replied, “What’s a labyrinth?”  Who knew that this question, coupled with that conversation under the stars,  would lead me to so many interesting places!
