A Powerful Experience You Don’t Want to Miss
What is Transformational Breathwork?
Transformational Breathwork uses the power of an activated breath sequence, inspirational coaching & guidance, hands on healing & support, and meticulously curated musical playlists to allow you to go deep within yourself to find release and the bliss of pure presence and freedom.
It holds the capacity to empower you to free yourself from the shackles and
chains of your past and the destructive critical stories of your mind so that you can cultivate a deep sense of acceptance with life as it is and feel more capable of creating the life you ultimately desire.
During the journey we use a conscious connected breath sequence that activates the sympathetic nervous system inducing a flow state of being that allows for a profoundly cathartic and clarifying experience to take place.
What is Ecstatic Dance?Ecstatic dance is potent, powerful and deeply healing. When you surrender to the potential and wisdom of the body, while releasing inhibitions, expectations and stress, all is felt, acknowledged and transformed.Like life, this practice is a dance between movement and stillness, sound and silence, inhale and exhale. In ecstatic dance, the music is specifically chosen to take you on a journey to liberate your creative life force and raise your vibration. We dance individually and collectively and in that, we put the unity back into our community!Ecstatic dance is both the perfect outlet for those who have been conditioned to believe that they “can’t dance” and a luscious playground for experienced movers who are craving a sober space to creatively express themselves.Ultimately it is a gathering where intuition, body, and music are the guides and through them, the dancers find freedom and connection.

What Past Participants Have Shared
“I’ve been attending Carolyn’s ecstatic dance events for many years and they are always a special treat. She guides us into our bodies with care, inviting curiosity and spontaneity. She draws me into my own wildness, and safely out the other side.”
“Dancing with Carolyn will carry you into the very spirit of the song and from there into the Universe… during ecstatic dance events with Carolyn, I have found myself dancing into the heart of the Divine sacred love, a truly magical healing place. An experience not to be missed!”
“I always loved dancing, but I was terrified of doing it because of all the conditioning around what dancing is “supposed” to look like. My first ecstatic dance with Carolyn was absolutely transcendent and I was able to move out of my shame beliefs and step into an embodiment like none other. Every time I dance it takes it to a next level. I have had massive releases and found profound clarity and insight. Ecstatic dance is a wild ride that you simply have to take to understand!”
