Christina Covington

Christina Covington is an ayurvedic lifestyle consultant, counsellor, healer and medicine woman. She is a successful businesswoman, mentor and mother of two. She is passionate about encouraging the embrace of life as a sensual, abundant activated queen. She will be conducting sessions at the upcoming Starlight Festival of Healing.

Christina, what does it mean to be an ayurvedic lifestyle consultant?

Ayurveda is translated to mean the science of life. Ayurveda is a rich ancient understanding of how to navigate life by addressing what we digest in our body, mind and soul. As a lifestyle consultant I guide people on the path of a conscious choice to connect with the whole you. Ayurveda teaches the most holistic healer lives within yourself and ayurveda provides simple tools to assist you to remember and reconnect with this inner healer.

What is the role of a medicine woman in western society?

This is a huge question, an article in itself. I have just been reading a novel on the birth of the alphabet and the disconnection of the feminine. With the invention of the written word we were taken from nature and intuition to left-brain linear thinking. One of the roles of the medicine woman today, which every woman has in her in her own unique way, is to guide her to remember and reignite the deep connection and resonance with nature, and trust her intuition, her inner knowing.

As a medicine woman today, if we try to imitate others’ medicine we become plastic and we have enough plastic in the world; we have the courage to stand in honour of our own unique medicine and create real space for others to discover and shine in theirs.

What are the issues that people most commonly come to you for guidance for?

Mostly women who want to change their habits and patterns in their life. Mental and emotional wellbeing as woman move into menopause. Modern-day women’s health and relationship issues to create a balance between work, children, relationships and the self to shine radiantly in who they are.

What is the advice that you like to impart?

Through simple daily practices and the connection to nature and learning to understand feelings as energy we can radiate our own unique self and in that hold space for other women to do the same as we are all mirrors of the feminine.

What will you be sharing at Starlight?

A sacred oasis for women – a sacred practice for women who want to awaken to source, who feel the pain of separation from each other, true nature and source, who know there is something bigger than themselves. Through bringing in presence, embodiment practice, respectful touch, ritual, listening, being heard, movement.

Starlight Festival of Healing runs from Thursday through till Monday at the Bangalow A&I Hall & surrounding pavilions. Price: $20 admission. 4-day pass $50. Locals 2-for-1 day 4 & 5 January. www.starlightfestival.com.au
