Deep Healing With Spirit Plant Medicine
Mindfulness, intensive group process integration, and a trauma-informed approach
Devon Christie MD, CCFP, RTC brings over a decade of experience with individuals and groups as an outspoken leader integrating cutting edge medicine and therapies, including Functional Medicine, Mindfulness and Yoga, and Psychedelic Psychotherapy, all within a modern, trauma-informed psychobiological framework. She completed training in MDMA- assisted psychotherapy through MAPS, and has served as an advisory board member to the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies MAPS Canada.
Dr. Christie’s medial practice focuses on chronic pain, specifically chronic muscle tension patterns/holdings using trigger point injections and other gentle needle-based techniques. She is also a Relational Somatic Therapist, which is a form of psychotherapy that harnesses mindfulness and body awareness to help a client restore resilience, regulation, and harmony within their body-mind and nervous system.
Dr. Christie is committed to a holistic model of health and wellness; one that recognizes the importance of healing not only in a physical sense, but also mentally, emotionally and ultimately, spiritually.
She traveled to Peru in 2012 to study with the World Shamanic Yoga Institute for 5 weeks to gain insight into cross cultural shamanic medicine practices. She then traveled to India in December 2012 to meet and attend teachings with His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. She has also studied and learned beside Dr. Gabor Maté learning deep group facilitation and compassionate inquiry skills.
She is also a certified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction teacher, and Interpersonal Mindfulness Teacher. Her own spiritual path has been greatly informed by Buddhist perspectives, and she continues to practice Insight Dialogue as a method of spiritual growth and self inquiry.
She became certified as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher (KRI) in November 2019 and is grateful to share these healing and transformative teachings.
