What brought me to this work?
A tumultuous childhood, from which I was ready to leave at the age of 5, feeling this wasn't the life I wanted to live after all. Being a hairstylist, then high school teacher of a customer service subject for many years, I learned to trust the universe had a plan and find ways to cope with stress, and to help my students handle life's daily trials in more positive ways. Further development of these techniques for first myself, then others led to the development of the recent umbrella, Empowerment Starts Here and the many useful tools of self-empowerment it represents.

What philosophy do I live by?
My favourite quote in life is "the past cannot be changed" but the future can be anything you want it to be". I take this one step further by saying, "the past can be revisited occasionally, long enough to gain insight into creating a better future. We need ALL the puzzle pieces of our lives to create the whole "authentic" person we came here to be. I also feel there are no mistakes only wake up calls leading to the opportunity to both look at and do things from a different view.

"Carolyn, once again I am taken to a space of Awe! OMG! I am instantly transported back in time almost 30 years ago when I first met him! A TEDDY BEAR with a Back-Bone ... that was my first impression of him. WOW!! This same picture-message jumps off the page - to give me a wake-up remembering. I write to share this with you of my experience of your truly amazing and somewhat magical exercise of ART FROM THE HEART. It has taken my breathe away in such a gentle, simplistic way yet hitting me with impact. I certainly recommend this technique of examining and seeking guidance to all who seek the same. I know exactly what my best choice of approach to my future now is! Thank you so much for developing and teaching this exceptional technique to assist me in lifting my blocks in life."
