In 1997 Christie Lynk participated in the birth of The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology with seven other men and women. She currently teaches in the MACP program as Assistant Professor of Counseling Psychology, maintains a private practice in Seattle, and works as adjunct faculty at Seattle University. Christie is a part-time ‘islander’, commuting to the Whidbey Institute, where she is co-facilitator for the Powers of Leadership cycle and offers training and consultation to agencies and individuals through group facilitation and the exploration of vocation.
Christie graduated from Seattle University with an MA in Existential, Phenomenological, Therapeutic Psychology where her research thesis focused on Ethics: Seeing the Face of the Other. Her studies have taken her through the worlds of psychology, theology, philosophy, literature and poetry. Her current writing and speaking centers on rest and restoration and adaptive leadership and the new commons.
In the vein of the every day and extraordinary, Christie’s favorite color is purple and she delights in her daughters, Vi and Amanda. She can often be found sitting on the shore of Lake Washington watching the clouds, reading poetry and enjoying the “art of doing nothing.”
