A curious introvert, Cristina Smith has learned to be an award-winning extrovert author. Now she talks to strangers and even enjoys it. Her nerdy idea of fun is to write playfully profound best selling puzzle books about life’s mystery, magic and science.
By following where her heart and soul lead, Cristina has earned honors in three aspects of life. Her books have garnered numerous literary awards. Founder of Yoga for the Brain and the Subtle Energy Center, longtime meditator Cristina was voted Favorite Medical Intuitive on About.com. And rising phoenix-like from the ashes of her home after the devastating Cedar Fire wildfire disaster, the State of California honored Cristina for years of fire prevention community education. She lives in two lovely places, on a boat docked in San Diego and in the forests of Nevada City, CA.
Her Yoga for the Brain series of profound philosophy and fun puzzle books that enhance mindfulness, increase brain power and support personal mastery are:
“As puzzling as life is, it's wise to stay sharp, have fun and play often!”
