CRISTINA A. MORARU
For a long time, Cristina struggled to reconcile her rationality with her spirituality. It simply felt “wrong” to her.
Trained as a psychology and educational researcher, for over 10 years she leaned heavily on her scientific thinking. The problem was, this rational side couldn’t make sense of her spiritual side. Cristina felt that she should know better than giving into her very human desire to find meaning in life.
This all started to change once Cristina decided to stop making herself wrong for having an attraction to spirituality, and chose instead to lean into it and see where it leads her. Gradually, people, knowledge and opportunities appeared that helped Cristina see ways in which her rational side can actually help her make sense of her spiritual side, and help her embrace it.
In this LOVE SESSION, Cristina will reveal how this journey inspired the idea for her new business that aims to popularize and demystify explorations of spirituality through a scientific lens, and share with us what she needs to make her big vision happen.
