January Dare to Share

January 14, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join this beautiful community of women on line for a monthly Dare to Share event.  One woman shares her personal story of challenges and triumphs and the other women in attendance hold space for her to do so.   January’s guest speaker is Cristina Ruscica.

Cristina is a graduate from the University of Windsor, Ontario, obtaining a General Arts Degree, with her major in Psychology.

She has been employed as a front line worker in her home community of Chatham-Kent, Ontario, since 1997, with children’s mental health and primarily within the child welfare sector. Cristina has committed these years of service to help strengthen children and families who have experienced family trauma and crisis. In addition to her work within the Social Service field, Cristina has also gained first-hand experience of childhood trauma, and the trajectories of life that follow unhealed parts within ourselves.

Through her own life circumstances and a deeper awareness to harboured subtle resentments, she awakened to some of life’s deeper lessons and realizations that have not only been applied to her work, but also to the writing of her first published book, Breathe Wide Open. She has discovered a way to use her own story, to support others on their own path of inner healing. Breathe Wide Open captures Cristina’s most significant realizations that have cleared the negativity within her life, and also created new patterns of behaviour and mindset that has opened the portal to inner expansion, potential, self-love and overall well-being. Cristina shares her personal story, with the intention to either support her readers who may have experienced their own trauma that has created a pattern of negativity, resentments and repeated unwanted circumstances, or for those who are of service to helping others.

Cristina’s journey created a road map to clearing negative blocks so that true happiness and inner power is achieved and full presence and compassion developed. Cristina is starting out on her authorpreneur and entrepreneur journey as she designs workshops and coaching programs all centred around Breathe Wide Open, helping people gain self-awareness, inner peace and self-love. Cristina also values the importance of the connection between mind and body.

She holds a passion for fitness as she realized the gateway exercise has had on not only physical health, but overall emotional well-being. She has been instructing Zumba classes since 2017 after discovering her love for the mind/body connection, as well as the high energy workout Zumba provides. She has found a way to improve both mind and body health, by incorporating the exercising of both. Cristina teaches Zumba and Strong Nation group fitness classes online, with her goal to reach anyone and everyone wanting and willing to achieve optimum mind and body health.

Cristina is the proud mother of two beautiful children, who have been an integral part in teaching her some of life’s most precious moments
