In Caroline’s Words: How We Got Started

My inquiry into the awakening awareness of my body began in my childhood. Through creative movement, drawing, and creative writing, I found myself intuitively building a safe container with the tools of art in my early years that helped me to hold the stories and challenges of my life.

Deeper communication between body, mind, and spirit became a tool to connect to the wisdom of my body. Unveiling this deep wisdom, asking for guidance and support through movement and creative expression has become a guiding principle in my life since.

I feel passionate about serving the needs of individuals, groups, and the greater community through building bridges between body, psyche, and spirit. My intention is to create a safe space to support my clients in exploring the stories and rhythms of their life and finding new resources for their life and art.
