My name is Christine Wehrmeier, founder of Kokoro Healing Space. I am originally from Australia and have been living in Iceland since 2020.

I founded Kokoro Healing Space in 2021. It had been a vision of mine for many years to create a healing space and sanctuary for people who need relief from all the stress of life.

Little did I know that the pandemic would whirl me up and out of my old life and plant me here in Iceland, a place I have considered my spiritual home since I first visited in 2011. It’s a long way to go before my vision is fully realised and until we have a physical space of our own, but it’s a beautiful start.

The intention is to host a variety of classes and events for an international community. To help educate, inspire, support and lift each other. We have both online and in person offerings, so I recommend signing up to our newsletter to receive our updates and to be part of our community.

KOKORO is not an Icelandic name or word, it is actually a Japanese word that loosely means “heart, mind, spirit”. I am half Japanese and believe in a wholehearted approach to living, so the name chose itself really.

I welcome you wholeheartedly to Kokoro Healing Space.

Christine Wehrmeier
