Who We Are


Christopher Collins



A life-long learner and community organizer, Christopher dedicates his life to co-creating structures for creativity and connection to thrive. 


As a youth of great material privilege and relative dearth of community, Christopher realized at a young age that cultivating meaningful, consistent relationships is key to vibrant life and society. In his 20’s he co-directed the non-profit Brain Arts Organization (including and Boston Compass free newspaper), a volunteer-run event producer and multimedia platform promoting grassroots musicians and artists in the greater Boston area. During this time he was deeply inspired by the imaginative power of a creative mutual aid network to resist the forces of commercialization. Christopher went on to obtain a Masters in Social Work from Simmons University in 2018, later working in E.R. and psychiatric inpatient units of a public hospital. There he intimately experienced the frustrating limits and paradoxical truths of relying on a dominating social support system that mixes medicine with poison, invisibly infusing helping relationships with systems of control and pathology that dehumanize provider and client alike. 


Invigorated by the robust creative ecosystem of body-based intelligence, regenerative ecology and dance-rooted community that is Western Massachusetts, Christopher moved to the area in early 2020. He has continued his training in a variety of intuitive healing modalities including Somatic Experiencing, Spiritual Family Constellations, and is currently completing a program to become a Certified Movement Analyst with Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies.


Shaped by Christopher's cumulative experience in artistic and healing communities, The Hidden Temple is a heartfelt offering and invitation to the region he calls home. This project aims to serve the local community as a dedicated space to weave intelligences, amplify meaningful connections and unleash creative potential towards inspired action. 

Christopher is actively seeking partners and collaborators to develop and implement this project.
