Christine Kanakis is a lifelong resident of the Hudson Valley, New York. She enjoys writing, gardening, long-distance swimming, hiking, and traveling both within the United States and abroad. She has explored nature in the Shawangunk, Catskill, and Adirondack mountains, and has studied nature with other biologists at the volcanoes and the inlet waters of Costa Rica. She has also explored Mexico’s cenotes and learned about medicinal plants in the Sian Kan forest.
Christine’s many trips to India have connected her with Universal Spirit as she studied under great spiritual masters.
Christine holds BS and MS degrees in education and science, and teaches math and science to private students and at home schools in the US and overseas. Influenced by her agricultural studies with Shumei farmers (Japanese agriculturalists) in the Catskill Mountains and by Rudolf Steiner’s biodynamic farming degree program at Chestnut Ridge, New York, Christine includes all she has learned about nature and nutrition in her teaching and writing.
