Welcome to The Dancing Curtain! I am SO glad you are here!!!
Welcome, Joyful Empaths! My name is Khristee Rich. I started my business from a place of joy, from a calling, and my business has evolved to places I could never have dreamed of.
You wouldn’t think that an introvert would LOVE being in the spotlight. I am an INFJ and proud to say that I overcame my debilitating shyness and became an outgoing introvert. Today being onstage and at the beach are where I am happiest. This may be where most people feel naked/exposed, but this is where I SHINE.
I specialize in helping empaths/highly sensitive women to overcome their greatest pain so that they can live their greatest joy. I help them to connect to their spirits, their life purpose, and their genius, so that they can open their hearts to the limitless gifts of their life. By living a life in alignment with our spirit and our life purpose we not only live a life beyond our wildest dreams but make a huge ripple effect on the world.
My mission is to inspire and empower women
and to encourage everyone to live a life beyond their wildest dreams.
Where did the name The Dancing Curtain come from?
In 2009, The Dancing Curtain, LLC began; it started as a comedy business. After I left my workaholic job at a not-for-profit contemporary art museum, I saw comedy everywhere! I began writing comedy from the time I woke up in the morning to the time I went to bed at night and then woke up in the middle of the night laughing, flicked on the light, and wrote some more! Everything around me was a short five-minute comedy skit. After writing comedy non-stop for two and half months, I realized it was my calling to start a business to spread joy and laughter, and build community during the recession.
I decided each show would end with a dancing curtain call: comedians would dance their bows and to remember my gimmick, I called my business, The Dancing Curtain. My business started with actors from New York City and performances started in Connecticut.
I had been battling a debilitating, chronic illness. Finally after struggling with my health for fifteen years, my doctors gave me a proper diagnosis: heavy metal toxicity. They said I should have been paralyzed or suffered brain damage. Doctors recommended chelation therapy and said it would take a full year of weekly treatment in NYC. Instead, I researched natural foods and supplements I could take to chelate the heavy metals out of my blood, without any side effects. I started meditating daily and I told herself that I would be well in one month. I healed myself naturally in one month!
Through practicing meditation, Reiki and shamanism, I became clairvoyant and psychic and began to use my gifts in my daily life. In 2017 I traveled to see the famous medium, John of God, in Brazil. I meditated with him for up to six hours a day. This experience greatly transformed me and made me a medium.
Today I am a healer and spiritual teacher. I work with empaths/highly sensitive women to overcome their greatest pain from chronic illness, chronic pain, abuse, trauma etc. so that they can live their life greatest joy and live a life beyond their wildest dreams. With my Reiki/shamanism blend and my skills being clairvoyant, psychic, a medium, and an empath I inspire and empower my clients to be their own health advocate, to persevere, and to dream big so that they they can step out from behind the curtain and joyfully live the life they were meant to live.
In addition, I host a private Facebook Group called Empowered Joyful Empaths to empower empaths to put their needs first and to be more joyful. In the group I teach meditations, creative visualizations, journaling, and gives tips for empaths to protect their energy and practice self-care. I also offer intuitive card readings and personal anecdotes for inspiration.
