Get Your Goddess On

Christine Clegg

Christine is a woman who loves to explore.

As a child she could be found, sitting in the garden, amid her beloved circle of plants, secretly questing for communion with the invisible, knowing that there was more to existence than people acknowledged. Things she planted grew, and her dreams stayed hidden.

Then she began to explore. Many worlds, within and without. As a traveller, a scientist, a seeker, a musician, mother, music teacher, yoga teacher, holder of ceremonial space, but most potently, simply as a woman feeling her way.

One day, whilst exploring joy and devotion in her yoga practice, she found herself dancing on, and then off, the mat, to follow a calling to explore the embodiment of truth and transformation through dance. Having been greatly inspired and transformed by this exploration, she is delighted to discover herself as part of a growing and diverse movement of people, who are devotedly dancing themselves open to deeper connections, and into grounded, radiant well-being.

Presently working as a musician and yoga teacher, she also co-facilitates women’s new moon circles, dance explorations, and ceremonies for personal transformation.

She has a passion for holding space for people to experience the pleasure and potency of their own energy, and to gain awareness of, and find connection with spirit, and their own, authentic, personal truth.

Nelly and Betsy


Walking the Shamanic path has filled my life with gratitude and appreciation for the natural world and the spiritual energy that flows. Taking this path has brought joy, creative energy and balance into my life, giving me the drive to share what I have learnt and experienced, so that others may benefit.

I am a grandmother, Shamanic healer, counsellor, teacher, writer and artist. I love to inspire and be inspired. I love to create. I love to learn and share with others. I love to create sacred space and support others in their journey.



Through various explorations and learnings, my journey has taken me to the path of the HeARTist, of simply connecting with Joy, and helping others reconnect with their Magical Inner Child.  Passionate about the women’s journey, and how women can reclaim their own personal power, my offerings comprise reiki, laughter yoga, circles facilitation and intuitive painting.

I believe that each and one of us has wonderful unique gifts to offer.  My aim is to help others transform their perception and bring joy and abundance into their life.


A Sacred Tool for Weaving the Dream


As a visionary artist, imagery and dream facilitator I specialise in assisting others in discovering and birthing their creative conceptions and hearts dreams into being.

As a child I began painting from my imagination as a way to embody the inner language of dreaming and this has continued as an expression to connect, see and communicate from the inside out. At age 21 a conscious journey began of understanding the body-mind-soul connection and I trained in various disciplines. For 10 years I studied with the Psychosomatic Therapy College on the Gold
Coast, Australia and for 7 years ran my own practice.

For the last 6 years I have been a full time artist and throughout this time have continued my training as a natural progression and deepening in the teaching of the language of imagery and dreaming from an ancient lineage of the Kabbalah called the ‘Kabbalah of Light’. Kabbalah is the ancient Jewish mystical path which means ‘to receive.’ Through specialised guided imagery this work is a simple and very effective way to by-pass the linear analytical mind and access the sub-conscious dreaming mind for instantaneous insight, creative expansion, health and transformation through the practice of inner vision.
