Speaker’s Bio

chrisChris Dierkes is a long time spiritual practitioner and teacher. Raised in the Roman Catholic tradition, he has had a lifelong love affair with the Christian mystical tradition. He is, however, also well versed in a diverse range of lineages and teachings. In particular, he’s a strong advocate for shamanic forms of healing work and consciousness. He’s also a Reiki Master, in three lineages of Reiki.

Chris spent four years living as a monk in early his twenties and later worked for three years as an Anglican priest in Vancouver. He has recently begun his own private practice in soul readings and clearing work. He marries the best of the ancient forms of knowing with a very contemporary look and feel, speaking a language of 21st century spirituality. His work is deeply rooted yet open and exploratory, disciplined and intentional yet always remaining lighthearted.

Chris is a soul interpreter and energy healer. He speaks the language of both the soul and the spirit and empowers others to learn the language and symbolism of the soul and the spirit. He writes on topics of contemporary spirituality, including the intersection of pop culture and spirituality, as well as the connection between spirituality and economics, social justice, and politics.
