“ Where there is no resistance, there is no pain. ”

" ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE as we touch our source and experience the magnificent, innate power we have as COSMIC, MULTI-DIMENSIONAL BEINGS! ” 

" In touch with our inner essence, our life force, we realize that ‘now’ continues like a ripple in the water of life. Once we have experientially accepted this, our consciousness is transformed.”

Chris Griscom has long been recognized as a visionary and spiritual teacher of truly global stature. Her great love for the earth and its peoples has inspired her to travel the world, reminding us all of the sacredness of life. Her teachings about reaching the Divine Higher Self and Expanded Consciousness are encapsulated in her many renowned books and tapes. Chris established The Light Institute in the ancient, pastoral village of Galisteo in 1985. The Light Institute swiftly earned it's present-day reputation as a ground breaking spiritual center for phenomenal work in facilitating spiritual growth and healing.

Chris Griscom is an internationally acclaimed Spiritual Teacher and Healer. She is a world recognized visionary, the author of eleven books which have been translated into thirteen languages. She is also the founder of The Nizhoni School For Global Consciousness, which is also located in Galisteo, New Mexico.

Her humanitarian services and contributions in holistic health and education have been twice recognized by The Indian Board of Alternative Medicines, based in Calcutta, India. The Board awarded Ms.Griscom with the Sewa Chakra Award on December 2, 1996. Ms. Griscom was specifically recognized for her work with AIDS patients. Past recipients of the award include the late Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama. Ms.Griscom again traveled to Calcutta, India on December 1, 1998 to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Board. During her visit, Ms.Griscom and a team of health care professionals from around the world formed a new International Board of Alternative Medicines. 

In fact, the spiritual flame of expansion for Ms.Griscom was ignited during her Peace Corps service. While working in El Salvador, she experienced an amplified awareness of life and death due to the monumental infant mortality rate there. In response to this, she went on to devote much of her healing talents to the field of birthing. In 1984 she became one of the world's first recorded individuals to give birth in the ocean. Also as a result of her Peace Corps experience, Ms. Griscom developed her now internationally famed acupuncture technique which is the basis for her work at The Light Institute. 

Returning to Galisteo, New Mexico, in the early seventies, Ms. Griscom began studying massage and acupuncture; discovering their powers to move energy in the body. From this, she discovered 'Windows to the Sky', a powerful, ancient form of acupuncture which precipitates awareness of the higher octaves, or dimensions of experience. Indeed, Ms.Griscom has devoted her life to the healing and care of the planet, the body, and the soul. Throughout the world, Chris Griscom has shared her intrinsic wisdom and insight on global consciousness, love, and healing with thousands upon thousands of individuals.
