About Lisa Allan | Wintergreen Creative Dreamer-upper-er / Artistic Director
Hi, I'm Lisa. I am an Usui Reiki Master, Yoga Teacher and Theatre Practitioner. I live in Ōtautahi Christchurch, New Zealand with my lovely husband Dan. I offer opportunities in both healing and creative arts to help you shine your unique light nice and brightly.
I love to connect people more deeply to themselves, to other people and to the world around us. I love to see connection happening and people growing and coming into their own sense of self. We are all beautiful beings who are doing the best we can to navigate life and sometimes it's really nice to be supported and nurtured on this journey.   

I think a spiritual journey is not so much a journey of discovery. It's a journey of recovery. It's a journey of uncovering your own inner nature. It's already there. -Billy Corgan
