Staying Present and Faithful with Kristie Zahn – 12-10-16
November 8, 2016
In times of stress, chaos and crisis, our minds can create stories that feed our fear, and pull us away from our need to be focused in the moment. We can ask ourselves “Why did this happen?”, “What does the future hold?”, and build narratives that feed what can become an overwhelming wave of emotion. How can we work to avoid creating stories in these moments, so that we can use our energy toward finding some peace, resolve or resolution? This week we speak with a guest who works side by side with people who are at difficult and challenging times in their life who will share her thoughts on how she guides people in those sacred moments.
Kristie Zahn spent over 20 years as a Human Resources Executive in non-profit, academic, and profit-based companies. A car accident 17 years ago led to a long road to recovery and a life reassessment. In 2012 she made a decision to leave her corporate life to pursue a new career in the field of Spiritual Care/Wellness, including chaplaincy work in hospice/hospital organizations and as a consultant offering lectures/classes in Mindfulness to interested groups within Southeastern Wisconsin. Kristie now also serves as Chaplain for Wheaton Hospital in Racine, WI.
Kristie holds master’s degrees in Management (Northwestern University) and Religious Studies (Cardinal Stritch University), and is a Board Certified Chaplain. She is also a certified Life Coach and Reiki Master.
