Christine Gerike, M.A., Essential Coach and Facilitator

For more than a decade, I have worked as a life  coach, energy worker, group facilitator and social architect. I am a passionate practitioner of personal and collective transformational change within and without.  We are living in exciting and challenging times.  As an agent of conscious social change, I facilitate practice spaces, trainings, and support individuals  on their healing journey.

In 2015,  I moved with my familiy to Summit, NJ in the greater New York area.  Before, I lived and worked in Munich, Germany.  In my private practice Passion into Purpose I offer individual coaching and group workshops and facilitation.

I have been a member of the German NGO Center for Human Emergence since 2015, and a group facilitator to support the non-profit organization The Pocket Project since 2017.

Before opening my own practice, I worked as an organizer and manager for a number of international educational and cultural institutions.  I hold a Master of Arts degree from the University of Münster, Germany, in U.S. Studies, Economics, and Political Science.
