Welcome!

I love to write and I love to dance, and I use both as vehicles for my work as a healer. Improvisation is what I teach, and as every moment seems to bring unbidden opportunities from the universe, every day of my life is filled with beauty and surprise. Ecstatic experience is the goal of my work, and I see ecstasy as the ultimate healer of all, from the personal to the cosmic. 

Over the years I have:

  • given birth to three children; 
  • been a midwife in India; 
  • sung in a Gospel choir; 
  • started a farm; 
  • taught my technique of dance healing; 
  • started a hunger organization, Daily Bread; 
  • built a strawbale house; 
  • written 11 books on matter and spirit and 
  • been married to the same man for 50 years. 

I feel I am here to help make the transition from a materialistic culture to a culture that recognizes that we are all connected with each other, with the earth and with the cosmos. I live in Berkeley, California with my husband and have 4 grandchildren. 

You can read my ongoing "Notes on the passing scene" on Carolyn's Personal News blog and can check out all my books, including excerpts from each of them, on Carolyn's Books.

The latest are SERIOUS FUN: Ingenious Improvisations on Money, Food, Waste, Water and Home and its sequel WORLDSHIFT HAPPENS: Facing Down the Fear, Waking Up the Mind.  They both address the realities of our time with deep seriousness, humor, personal stories and suggestions of how to keep on keeping on.
