Chris Flisher is a nationally recognized astrologer, and accomplished artist, teacher, speaker, writer, and radio host. In an effort to fuse his skills, Chris draws on his deep knowledge of astrology to create individualized soul maps as well as healing mandalas. Astrology provides direct insight into the characteristics of the person, while the spiritual art of the mandala reflects the tangible experience of the healing soul. Using these time-tested tools, Chris is able to guide people toward the fulfillment of their true purpose. He is always available for private astrology consultations.
Chris sees astrology and the mandala as complementary tools, bringing about greater understanding of the Self, and providing guidance and optimism to challenging and changing times. His desire to share this unique approach led to the September 2007 launch of “Turning of the Wheel”, an online radio show discussing art, astrology, and spiritual adventure.
Chris is a long-standing member of the National Council for Geocosmic Research and contributes a weekly astrology column for several news publications. He produces weekly astrology videos that are available each week via YouTube and has been a weekly contributor as radio host of Turning Of The Wheel.
Chris’s work is regularly shown in galleries, cafes, and public art events in the New England area. He was selected by the U.S. Department of State, Arts In Embassies program to represent the United States in the embassy in Praia, Cape Verde where his artwork is on loan through 2015. He traveled to Cape Verde as a guest of the US ambassador in the summer of 2013 to host workshops for three orphanages in Cape Verde. He also participated in an international symposium on the mandala in Rome and exhibited in the highly-acclaimed Pool Art Fair in New York City. Chris creates custom-commissioned art based on the unique characteristics of the birth chart, which are one-of-a-kind reflections of an individual’s uniqueness.
Additionally, Chris’s art has been licensed by publishers, art skins, puzzles and more. Chris also teaches classes and workshops, and is available for speaking engagements, radio interviews, and live astrology readings. Chris is an avid music writer and published poet. Chris was formerly the co-host of two nationally-syndicated radio talk shows, both of which focused on alternative methods for facing the challenges of life, love, and evolving. He is currently on the docent staff at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum and is a regular contributor to numerous community adult education programs where he teaches both astrology and the art of the mandala.
From 1986 to 1997, Chris Flisher was a nationally-published music journalist. His articles appeared in a wide variety of periodicals including CD Review, New Country Music, Performing Songwriter, The Leak, Option and The Boston/Worcester/Providence Phoenix. His main focus was “roots” music which included folk, jazz, world, blues and other fringe musical forms. Although these articles reflect the artists at the time, they remain relevant today.
