How I work...

Before every single session, workshop or ritual I meditate and connect with the vibration of the people I work with and the energy of the planets on that certain day and choose intuitively which methods of my spectrum fit best for that certain moment. Then I create a wholesome experience by stimulating all your senses with smudging, drumming, singing and giving Reiki.

I love those magic moments when I connect with the Aura of someone and the universe and am allowed to ”see" things that are sometimes hard to explain. One cannot force these moments, but I can make myself empty and give energies space to unfold naturally.

My philosophy

For me there is no defined target on the shamanic path, its more a basic attitude of awareness, openness and love for all that is. It is a neverending process of learning and growing and simply practicing to the best of knowledge and belief. My mission is to help others reconnect with themselves and with nature and hear their inner voice clearly and I am always very touched when I get the permission to ”look” in someones soul. Because in the very core I always find the same vulnerability and beauty that we all carry inside. Ich find love, wisdom and power, that wants to break free and make the world a better place. 

By drumming, singing, rattling, smudging and calling in good spirits I create the space in which you will find the answers to your questions yourself. 

The divine in me honors the divine in you,
for the highest good of all,



Why I write these lines? Because I can´t explain it and even dont believe in these kinds of treatments, but still I got convinced by Christinas shamanic work. Unbelievably you dont even have to belong to this ”world" to profit from its wonders. Christina helped my out of a big crisis, supported my shy daughter to open up and even removed my knee pain with her hands.  Don´t ask my how, don´t ask my what´s behind it, don´t ask at all, you just have to experience it yourself. 

Stephanie, writer

By chance I participated in a workshop of Christina and Jasmin Unterhofer in 2020. I was the last to enter the room, everyone was already seated and the sacred space was already opened. I could see that everyone had a guardian angel behind them and that these angels were forming a closed circle around the women.  When I saw a big lightbeing in the middle with more than two arms, I understood the topic of the workshop: Shakti and Shiva, the balancing of male and female energy. Thanks to Christina for those precious hours I spent at your space. All the best for you and Across the Universe, may you hold many more healing rituals in your room!

Gabriele Wenger, Shaman, Herbal specialist

If you want to find inner peace then 50 minutes shamanic drumming & soundhealing are a bit like a short vacation at the sea. But without the stress of getting there. I can recommend Christinas shamanic work to all pragmatists: it works even if you dont believe in it.

Peter Mattes, project manager

I just finished the amazing book „fuchs erde“ by Thomas Sautner and had to think of Christina and her „Across the Universe“ a lot of times. In this book you can find this quote: „If you know that there is a god, there will be one for you. If you know that the stream, the stones, the plants und the animals talk to you, they will talk to you und you will understand them. If you know that happiness is in you and only in you you will be filled with it. Everthing will be real. It will not only be in your belief and not only in your imagination. It will be true and you will understand. You will be one with the divine cosmos of which you are a part of. If you don´t believe you will not know and it will not be. If you pass by without caring and search for yourself outside of yourself, you won´t find yourself. Then there is nothing. Then you just dream of it. “ Christina has created a space in times of technological und informal hyperactivity and overstimulation to listen to your self breathing, and to stand still and spend some time returning to yourself. Finding yourself might sound like a quote from a slick, pretentious blog and incense sticks. But the truth is Christina passes on real old wisdom that is part of the wisdom of our ancestors and our being and shares profound shamanic practice. Wisdom about our guarding angels, the importance of soul purification and the certainty that we can help our selves if we just acknowledge our own power und are brave enough to live it and use it. One could call Christinas Universe a „self help group for developing light beings”. However you call it, it is a space worth visiting as often as possible! 

Sandra Knöbl, architect, DJ and kids yoga teacher

The shamanic drumming journey plus soundhealing of Christina was a magic experience. Her spirit and her drum were leading me into the depth of my soul. Under her guidance I met a few spirit animals and I felt a field of love expanding inside of me. I was also enchanted by Christinas angelic voice which I felt deep within each cell. 

Jasmin Unterhofer, Yoga-teacher, womens circles, dancemeditation

It is always wonderful working with Christina, she is connected within a deep level easily, it really comes naturally to her. I have worked with her in person and also by phone, since I live in Brazil, but it´s as if we're in the same room! She even played her drums on our calls while I meditated. I've been able to know myself more with her help and it´s really a blessing. Thank you Christina for your teachings and healing.

Victor, Entrepeneur

„Across the Universe“, is like an oasis to me, to get new energy for body, mind and soul. I like participating in the well curated events and workshops there, offered by personalities of many colours. And I really appreciate Christinas shamanic work, which holds a lot of value and comes from the heart.

Doris, Sozialpädagogin

If you look for a time-out from everyday life, with Christina you are in good hands. Gently she drums you into another world, in which you really can let yourself go. Afterwards you do not only feel wonderfully recharged and relaxed, but also see things clearer and in order. Thanks again for the great treatment.

Elisabeth, Yoga-teacher

Listen to my instruments

At the links below you can listen to my instruments and get the vibe of my drums. 

The first drum I made myself with goat skin, the second one is deer and I made it with the help of a professional drum maker.

The swinging chime comes from Svaram, a nice Soundhealing-Center I visited in India.

The whole story...

I grew up in the countryside of Upper Austria, surrounded by mountains and lakes, spent a lot of time in the forest, and as a kid the trees and animals always felt like friends to me. Since I was 19 years old I have been working as a graphic designer, later on I made a diploma in Interior Design and as a hobby I design furniture and costumes. In my twenties I used every free minute to travel the world until I became a mother with 31. I had two natural births in a Geburtshaus and returned back to the forest with my own kids after spending a lot of time in front of computers. I reconnected with nature and felt that I could not return to my old lifestyle before the kids. 

In that time I also lost my mother and looking for answers and healing I found my way to a shaman. When I heard his drum the first time, I knew that something important just happened. He works in the tradition of the Lakota and the sounds and the smell of white sage were not strange to me but rather like coming home.  In one session with I had my first out-of-body-experience and felt with every fibre that there is a soul that can leave the body. 

I wanted to know more and began to read books about famous healers, built my own drum, started a therapy with this shaman and absolved the master diploma of the Austrian Academy for Shamanism. I looked at my past, my present, former lives and tried to dissolve as many shadows and old beliefs as possible. 

The end of it was finding my own mission which lead to founding Across the Universe, a seminar center and Yogastudio and started to invite healers from all over the world. By watching them working, I learned a lot of different ways to support people in their processes and also improved my personal practice. I created a nice treatment room and started living my dream.

Why Mother Eagle? 

This name was given to me as my spiritual name in my shamanic seminar. My first power animal was the eagle and in many constellations, privately and also in work I often end up in the role of a mother. I am a Virgo plus Virgo rising and have even 4 more Virgos in my astrological chart, so the element Earth is very strong in me. I shall heal with the wisdom of the eagle and the power of Mother Earth and I am born to create life, rooms and ideas.

Private Stuff


is and has always been a part of my life. I grew up with the music of Frank Sinatra, John Lennon, Abba and Elvis in the background and it always made me somehow happy to listen to them.  As a teenager I spent my free time near the river with my friends and my guitar, singing Beatles- and Seventies-Songs. I sang in a musical, had my first band when I was 13 and after that about 6 more. I sang Jazz and Bossanova, Funk und Soul and also wrote my own songs. I am meditating now since years and came to the conclusion that it does not only enhance the mental/spiritual power and emotional balance, but also stimulates musicality and creativity. As if it all comes from the same area...

Since me and my backpack explored India 20 years ago, the travel bug hits me regulalry. I just love finding powerful places in nature and meditate there and feel the vibe of a new piece of this beautiful planet. For example this photo was taken in Iceland, after a beautiful meditation in which I connected with the vulcanoes. Just to see plants like these cute woolen flowers for the first time makes my day. In the last years I found a new beautiful way to connect with the locals. When I got the impulse that I could help someone with my skills, I treated people spontaneously. Or just drummed with them. It showed me once more, that shamanism is not a job, it is an identity, that is always present, on holiday and in my private life and I love it.


A turning point in my life was my first time at the Burningman Festival in Nevada in 2006. One week without money, advertising and mobiles, an utopia full of creativity and spirituality in the desert. One part was, that I had the fun of my life, but the longterm effect was even better, because it gave me so many new perspectives on literally everything. 

There in 2006 I also came in touch with a shamanic ritual for the first time in my life. Back then I had no clue what they were doing in their minds, I was just very impressed by the effect of the ritual. One woman lay in the middle, the shaman drummed and the other participants took the roles of the relatives of her. They travelled together in another dimension and just made some animal noises from time to time. Afterwards everyone told what he or she had experienced and the woman said that all collected infos matched her family members perfectly. They charged her in a circle with the power of all of her ancestors and the expression of her face changed and she seemed years younger and stronger. This was one of my first magic moments in my life and it should not stay the last one. 

In 2019 I went to Bunringman for the fifth time and drummed at the opening ritual of the water-Altar from Camp Amazone. This altar proves, inspired by Dr. Masaru Emoto, that meditation changes the structure of water.  > Infos
