Get Centered

Are you starting a new chapter of your life or in need of a jump start personally, professionally or as a parent?

Whether you are in the midst of changing your family dynamics, growing your career, becoming an entrepreneur or an empty nester, taking the next steps can feel daunting.

“You can’t have community without unity.”

- Alan Graham, Founder Mobile Loaves and Fishes and Community First! Village

Retreats at Community First! Village

The retreat site is located in the beautifully orchestrated master planned community, the Community First! Village. They provide affordable permanent housing for the disabled and chronically homeless in Central Texas. More importantly however, it provides community and a sense of belonging. 

Whether you are a corporate CEO, in college or beginning a new phase of your life, we all require that feeling of community.

Front Porches of Homes

A blend of uniquely designed, tiny homes... 

...crafted by some of the most gifted architects in the world along with tastefully renovated RV’s, Community First is its own quaint, peaceful village. Amenities on the property include a community market, an art center, blacksmith forge and wood shop, a chapel, a large outdoor movie theater, a prayer labyrinth, places for worship, on-site medical facility for health screenings, walking trails, a community vegetable garden , chicken coop and a dog park. 

The village is designed for the conversations that begin on the front porch, move to meals at the outdoor community kitchens, and continue around the outdoor fireplaces roasting marshmallows.

"I want you to know that this workshop seriously made a HUGE difference in my work and how I feel. When I feel myself getting off center...I think about the Emotion Highway and remember to put myself back in the center lane. It has made a difference in how I relate to situations and how I deal with some of the stresses I am facing now. Not trying to be perfect trying to manage...and being gracious to myself when I am not managing. BEST money I have ever spent in my life!" 

- Steffanie R.,  Dell 

"Tools, I need tools". My mind often works in circles. And, I tend to have multiple tasks going at the same time. Christina shared with me various easy to use new tools to quickly help me to identify and clarify issues and emotions. Equally important (but only if you are being honest with yourself!) is these tools will provide perspectives of when we are falling into old patterns (admit it - we all have them) and give thought to how we can better approach those button pushing areas. 

Terri K., City of Austin

Christina is such an inspired teacher. There was a lot of value in every session with her. I'd have to say the biggest revelation for me was how crucial it is to take a non-judgmental look at the health of your most important relationships and really put some strategy around how you want to shift them. It seems simple, but it's made a huge difference in how I interact with the people I love most. And that is invaluable.”

Ellie S.,  Media Bombshell
