On Tuesday, November 20th, our dear friend, Christine Cipra, experienced a stroke and spent several weeks at Rush Hospital in Chicago receiving treatment. This site has been established to accept donations for her and all proceeds will be given to her and her loving husband, Charlie, directly.
We thought that many of Christine’s friends, clients, and students might want to lend their support. We know that Christine has a lifetime supply of candles, incense, jewelry, scarves, and inspirational books. She does have some concerns regarding her financial well being, however. Although Christine and her husband Charlie have great insurance, Christine will be unable to work for some time. As you probably know, self-employed individuals do not earn money if they do not work.
Christine has been a teacher, friend, sister, mentor, and healer to so many. She has helped us with injury and illness. She has shared our joy at times of new beginnings and consoled us in times of sorrow and loss. She has helped us learn how to be in the world. Now she needs our support!
In addition, the Team Christine and Kirtan Benefit will be held at Ahimsa Yoga Studio in Oak Park, IL. on January 18th from 6:30pm – 9:30pm. Additional information can be found at teamchristine.brownpapertickets.com. We hope you will join us!
On behalf of Christine, Charlie and Bodhi (their dog) – thank you for your support!
