Welcome to Engaging the Spirit, a place where love, spirit, and creativity thrive! Founded in 2016, Engaging the Spirit is the unification of mind, body, and spirit. It brings all my training and experiences together, and for me, it’s like lighting a million candles and enjoying the glow–I am so excited to share with you and support you on your soul path! My mission is to help you on your healing journey!
Who am I, you ask? Rev. Brooke Winkler, MSSA, LISW-S, ACHT, ERYT-200
Professionally, I started my journey as a therapist but always sensed there was more of a connection between the psychological and spiritual. So I immersed myself in the study of the mind, body, and spirit, and how to bridge them together. I am a graduate of Case Western Reserve University, The University of Akron, and Fellowships of the Spirit School of Healing and Prophecy. I am working on my doctorate in Mind-Body Medicine with certifications in Integrative Wellness Coaching and Creativity Studies from Saybrook University. I retired from therapy in December 2019, after 20 years. I am also an Advanced Heart-Centered Clinical Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master, Psychic Medium, Registered Yoga Teacher, Certified Laugh-A-Yoga Coach, MARI Practitioner, Artist, and Belly Dancer. I believe that humor gets us through life and bonds us with others. And if you want the real deal…I am me. Creative, fun, kind, caring, stubborn, irreverent, and goofy. I live my life happily and attempt to put my best self forward on a daily basis. I put my heart into the things I do. It’s very common for me to be asked, “What are you up to NOW?!?” I laugh often, dance a lot, don’t get enough sleep, and enjoy talking people into adventures with me. I’m proud of my accomplishments and treasure my independence. Children fascinate me. On the Myers-Briggs, I’m an INFJ. I love flowers! I have the best little puppy in the world, Baxter. I keep telling him that, hoping he’ll learn to behave here soon. My cat, Bella, tolerates my existence. I’m the middle child–sigh. And I really think I missed my calling as a 1950s housewife…however, everyone laughs hysterically when I say that. That’s me in a nutshell!
