For over 30 years, Chandra (pronounced like “Channing”) has maintained an ongoing practice of: writing, poetry, photography, dream work and dream journal, meditation, and creating art in various mediums. She has two BA degrees from Viterbo University (Studio Art and Ministry), and has been a freelance and commissioned artist since 1999. In 2006, Chandra earned her Master of Arts degree in Servant Leadership (ethical leadership); earned two Clinical Pastoral Education units as a hospital chaplain intern, and became a certified Usui Reiki Practitioner-Teacher. Chandra’s spiritual care practice, “The Present Moment Chi,” was established in 2003. In November of 2007, Chandra began blogging. She has also presided as a wedding and funeral officiant. From Spring of 2011 to the end of 2014, Chandra served as a Core Team member for the holistic health collective known as Integrative Therapies (La Crosse, WI). The collective, at that time, consisted mainly of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, massage, cupping, Mayan abdominal massage, energy work, spiritual direction, and other modalities. From 2016 to 2018, Chandra created Wild Clover Press, an indie publishing platform, and published Recipe For A Green Life, a 488 page reference and complete guide and recipe book for holistic sustainable living. (C.S. Sherin is her author name.) Currently, Chandra provides specialized editing services, and in-depth astrology. She is a research and ethics enthusiast; poet, dancer at heart, and dedicated dreamer.

Storytelling and editing are passions. Both hold the potential for a sort of alchemy…that I also find in poetry and art.

What I know and maintain:
Imagination is a sacred doorway to non-ordinary reality. Meditation, breath work, and healing visualizations are free and priceless tools. Ordinary reality is filled with countless overlooked miracles. There is so much more going on than what it seems. Re-igniting the wonder of life and being (rooted in the “ordinary”) in each present moment — can make all the difference — and awaken natural, healing magic and hidden beauty.
