Bridge Between Worlds—With Christine Gutierrez

Join Elayne Kalila and Christine Gutierrez as they dive into what it means to be a bridge between the worlds.

Christine and Elayne Kalila are clinically trained psychotherapists and they both bring women together in deeply transformational spaces that draw from the priestess and shamanic worlds of healing.

During this beautiful conversation, they talk about the need to honor the strength of clinical training alongside intuitive, instinctual gifts that we all carry.

They also shared how important it is to draw from our personal lineages which are accessed through inner knowing and embodied practice.


Here’s some of what they explore in this episode: 

  • What it means to draw healing traditions from your own indigeneity & cultural/spiritual roots
  • Why we need training where we can explore the femimine healing arts embedded within us
  • How to offer deeply transformational spaces & hold them with integrity and a strong foundation
  • Why rites of passage are so needed for us as women as we move from Maiden – Mother – Queen – Crone
