Christine Thorn’s slideshow, her hands-on demonstration of Marie Kondo’s folding techniques, and her interactive exploration of the power of guided mediation make her presentations throughout Connecticut very popular.
A Certified Silver KonMari Consultant, Thorn has new presentations scheduled at public libraries in March, April and May that will introduce guests to the life-changing magic of the KonMari Method of comprehensive tidying and decluttering. All programs are free and open to the public.
Thorn constantly updates her presentation, most recently by emphasizing how the energy healing of Reiki and KonMari share the important goal of creating balance in life.
Nearly three decades of helping people with their body, mind, and spirit as a Chiropractor, Reflexologist, Reiki Master Practitioner, and Acupuncturist gives Thorn a deeply nuanced understanding of the concerns and goals of those who gravitate toward KonMari for its cleansing and liberating qualities.
“Clearing out mentally, clearing your house out physically, the result is the same—a lightness, clarity, honoring yourself, loving yourself and being more peaceful,” she wrote in a recent blog post. “Most people are searching for balance that will allow them to feel better, happy, and worthy. It’s from that perspective that the KonMari term ‘spark joy’ derives its fullest meaning.”

About Christine Thorn & KonMari
Inspired by Kondo’s best-selling book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” Thorn studied with Kondo and her team in New York City and became certified as a KonMari consultant. This past November, she was chosen by Kondo’s team to serve on a panel for the KonMari Consultant Certification Courses in New York City.
Through the KonMari Method’s category-by-category system of tidying, Thorn creates living spaces of comfort and serenity, guiding clients in a tidying journey toward keeping things that nourish the soul, while discarding the rest, which produces lasting results. At the heart of KonMari is the fundamental question about each object, Does this spark joy?
Thorn has been helping people with their body, mind, and spirit for 27 years as a Chiropractor, Reflexologist, Reiki Master Practitioner, and Acupuncturist. Her passion for helping others heal through their environment and home has grown to include creating a new look and feel within their living spaces—and that, in turn, helped launch her on her KonMari journey.
