The Life Reentry Weekend

The Life Reentry®  Weekend

June 1 & 2, 2018 | Scottsdale, AZ

A special thanks to our sponsor:

Let’s Begin Again

Join Christina for her very first Life Reentry® Weekend in Arizona.

Have you lost someone you loved?

Have you been afraid to start a new life?

Do you feel like you will never be happy again.

If you answered yes to these questions, then this weekend is for you.

I am excited to begin this journey by your side. We will have one incredible experience for two days at the Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa.

Your life after loss will no longer be the same. By taking The Life Reentry® Weekend, you will have an immediate change….your brain, your heart and your mind will thank you for this.

You will have tools and resources that you never had before. I can’t tell you how excited I am to meet you and be with you during our event.

What to Expect

The LIVE Life Reentry® retreat is a two-day journey that will change your life after LOSS. The retreat will provide you with tools, exercises, grief cleanses, invisible losses discoveries and healing.

This healing is necessary for the life ahead.  Christina believes that after loss we go to a place she has coined the Waiting Room. The place between two lives, the life you leave behind after loss and the life that is waiting for you.

Millions of people never leave the waiting room. They believe that the waiting room is their second chapter, where all it is, is a waiting place. Time does not heal all wounds. And grief is not meant to last forever.

Fear takes over our life after loss, and our brain is stuck on this fear based experience. This weekend will help you exit the fear loop and take your very first steps into your brand new life after loss. After the retreat you will also have access to the private, members-only, Life Reentry® community where you can connect with other people who are sharing a similar journey.

You will exit your old life and enter a brand new one, with increased self-awareness, wisdom, and a new way of looking at life. You will take home the skills, tools and community support to move forward after life altering loss or change.

  • Friday and Saturday you will attend a variety of different sessions that will walk you through the Life Reentry® model and your journey to begin your new life.
  • You will ask questions, share, support and encourage each other in the community.
  • I will do everything in my power to remind you that your life is not over yet. No matter what has happened to you, you still have the power to reinvent, rebuild, feel again, love again, live again.
  • You will receive a Life Reentry® journal that contains the Life Reentry® material, exercises, and homework to help you on your journey.
  • After the weekend, we will interact together daily within the private, members-only, Life Reentry® community and make sure you are moving towards your goals.
  • By the end of Life Reentry®, your life will look different, you will have tools and resources to rebuild and reenter.
  • After the 2 days are over, we start a life long journey where we help you make the new dreams come true. You will never be alone again.

My goal? To make every moment feel like a Reentry experience with steps and life changing insights.

Beautiful – Relaxing – Life Changing

Who is this for?

Nobody can understand or know what you are going through.

There are no words or real roadmap that can ever do justice when the unthinkable has taken place. How do you even come back after something so devastating?

When my husband died, I truly believed that a part of me had gone insane. To be honest with you, a part of me really did.

This is how I know that a part of you feels like everything is upside down right now.

You might even be in The Waiting Room of life, the place in between the life you left behind and the life you have yet to live.

You want to go back to your old life but that is no longer an option. I bet nobody said anything to you about the duality of loss. You are no longer you but everything is as you left it.

You want to love again, live again, dream again but you are not sure that it is going to be possible for you.

This weekend is about change. A new life. A new purpose after loss.

If you have lost your spouse, your child, your sibling this is for you.

If you have gone through a difficult divorce or lost your job and you want to reenter back to life this is for you.

I was in a desperate dark place for over a year. My husband died January 7th 2017 and I thought that after all the first Anniversary’s I would feel somewhat myself again ready to get back to my passion of teaching. I didn’t as a matter of fact it was the complete opposite I stayed in bed only to get up and take care of my animals. Didn’t shower, dress, eat properly, nothing. I cried then cried some more. Some days I would drink too much just to dull the desperate excruciating pain of loss. I didn’t want to go on, but I knew I couldn’t live like this either. I had been to all the support groups through Hospice which were good I also did a program through a church called grief share. All these helped to share my story of grief, but something was missing!
I ran across Message in a bottle which Christina wrote. I loved her style of writing so I subscribed to the Friday email. Then came the Life Reentry® course. I prayed about it feeling like this was the missing piece. It was after just three weeks I felt the shift! I am back in ministry, my passion of teaching with a new hope walking forward. I still grieve the loss of my beloved, but now I’m honoring him by moving forward into my new life. I cherish the memories we shared together, but I’m moving forward. This course gave me my life back, it’s a different life, but I know I can experience joy again. I have the tools through Christina’s course to work daily on renewing my mind.

Katrin Annelise Gunka Jurdan

“I lost my wife and father in law, two weeks apart, just over a year ago. This event in my life nearly destroyed me, every little piece of ME, and then a friend kept hounding me to read Second Firsts. I finally gave in and listened to it on cd as I was driving to my parents house in Pittsburgh. Driving home I felt my life change. I felt giddy for the first time since my wife died, and I couldn’t wait to get home and sign up for the class. I took Christina’s Life Reentry® class and my whole outlook shifted. With each class you could feel the grief lift and life returning, so I decided to become a Life Reentry® Practitioner. I want to help people the way Christina’s program helped me.”


Jennifer Moore

“The Life Reentry® Class gave “names” to all the emotions I feel in my grief and helps me sort them out and understand them. The class gave me the ability to look at what I was feeling, acknowledge and decide what to do with those feelings. Also, the validation from others in the class is so appreciated and needed as you try to navigate all the emotions of your grief.

Carol Roth

“This class has given me the life tools I need to forge onward …don’t wait 7.5 years to do this like me….Do it asap…it will change your outlook, perspective and your life…Christina is a God send for those experiencing loss ….”

Tammy Kessel

“The biggest takeaway from life re-entry was to find out that I was not alone. I thought my grief was unique. In the first lesson Christina mentioned that grief was competitive and that caught my undivided attention. My grief was no worse than anyone else’s. I actually found out some people were experiencing my exact situation. And others were experiencing situations I couldn’t even imagine. That sentence alone changed my perspective so much.”

Amy Eschbacher

“This course and Christina’s book are the path forward from a deeply broken heart. I thought I was doing fine before the Life ReEntry Program and on a basic level, I was. However this program gave me the tools and skills to ‘go deep’ to look under the surface of my loss and piece by piece mend the many fragments of my heart and soul. Christina’s work, her facilitators, her process and my entire ReEntry classmates were a gift, a tremendous gift of a new thriving life. Yes, there will be bumps, bruises and sorrows still to come- but now I have the tools to manage these hurts. My total gratitude goes to Christina, her team and my wonderful heartfelt classmates.”

Ute Ann LJ

“If all this class gave me was the hope that there was a way out of being stuck in grief, it would have been enough. But over the six weeks, I watched myself and my classmates learn and see the possibility of being whole again, in spite of the holes in their hearts. Forever grateful for Christina and her team, for their work, spirit, and endless support.”

Jessica Kupferman

“This class has been a life training in Awareness practice. Recovery from a deep loss is not a linear experience. Because I have seen a progression of healing from my losses I did not realize that I was still in the waiting room. I was not aware of the emotional repetitive loops that were keeping me from embracing my life more fully and thought that this was my new normal. By gaining awareness of my limiting patterns along with non-intimidating tools such as 5% plugins I feel quite surprised and much more hopeful about my future where there is much potential.”

Jai Jayme Alpert

“This class provided me (and my brain) strategies,understanding and self awareness not only about how to navigate grief but how to live and love again in a purposeful and joyful life.”
