It was incredibly emotional as I was made aware of my unconscious patterns, but ultimately empowering because I have the tools and confidence to bust through my blocks and operate from a place of self-love and compassion. I’m always raving about Carolyn to my friends, and I highly recommend that you give yourself the gift of life coaching with her!

I decided I wanted to get out more, do something new and meet likeminded people. Besides being fun the support group I joined was beneficial to me. The group comprised of diverse men and women of varying ages. As a group we shared openly and honestly. I was astounded by the compassion and non judgement. We all have something to give/contribute and it was great to feel supported. Even though each of us was at a different stage of our life’s journey I could relate with everyones pain and triumphs.
It was comforting to know that other people are going through and feeling much of the same things I am. This in turn helped me speak openly about my issues, desires and where I am in my life. I learned to trust and value myself more as well as having more awareness and compassion for all. It was a great experience for me and I loved every minute of it. The tasty snacks we took turns bringing was a real treat too. I would encourage anybody looking for a new spark in your life or wanting to feel more support to join a support group. Namaste.
I had the incredible opportunity to participate in a support group lead by Carolyn Collin. Carolyn’s ability to create an open and safe space where participants can explore and share of themselves is a rare and beautiful gift. Carolyn’s passion and desire to help people be their best selves radiates from her. If you get an opportunity to spend time with her, take it.
My experience of a Summer SOUL Retreat was one of awe and magic. The event was fun, creative & organized. From the spa, to the connection with horses, to the organic whole food snacks and meals (which were totally delicious!). Carolyn is a warm hearted and caring person who genuinely cares for people. Her child like innocence, sensitive, intuitive nature is very easy and comfortable to be with. She is spirited, integral, and very committed to her path of truth. One word to describe Carolyn –precious. Should you decide to attend Carolyn’s SOUL Retreats, the experience would be worth it, even if its just to connect with Woman of like-mind, spirit and to have some fun!!
Carolyn has helped me with many aspects of my life; from relationships, to career, to my spiritual endeavours. She’s made all of these transitions as smooth as they could be with the knowledge provided through our coaching sessions. I’ve also witnessed Carolyn in all her areas of her life; from career, business, mother and friend. She is professional, patient, compassionate and has so much life experience that has led her to being one of my favourite people to be around and the first person I call for a session when I need advice with anything.
She has always kept me on the right track. She never judges, listens intently, and provides the insight I need at that moment in time. She has the kindest heart and you can tell she was brought here to help people. Most importantly she genuinely cares. Thank you from the bottom of my Heart for helping me be the best I can be.
Thank you for being such an incredibly inspiring, supportive, beautiful, knowledgable, ever evolving soul!!! You inspire me to become better for myself and everyone I come in contact with! Thank you for being a true leader!! I love you Carolyn!!
Carolyn is a life coach and a friend. She has a great sense of initiative that she partners with a drive to be the best. She’s insightful, energetic and loyal. If you are looking for someone to help you become more successful in either your personal, spiritual, or professional life, Carolyn is that person. She cares deeply about others and her enthusiasm for achievement is infectious.
Carolyn really helped me think through things and then take measurable steps to get results. She was firm when she needed to be with me but also very sensitive and helpful. I am much more confident these days and I am excited to take my on-line business to the next level. It was a difficult process for me, but Carolyn made it better with her patience and support.

I have been a part of two ‘Support Groups’ facilitated by Carolyn, and both have been uplifting experiences. It’s one thing to challenge ourselves to look deep within, all on our own, but it’s a much more rewarding journey when we are able to share our experiences with a GROUP in a safe, loving environment. Carolyn helps create an atmosphere that is welcome and inviting. I would encourage anyone looking for a sense of community to participate in one of Carolyn’s Support Groups. I look forward to the next one.

Support Group (Feb. – Apr. 2017):
“I highly recommend this support group for anyone in transition. This group literally changed the course of my life for the better. Forever Grateful! ~Timmie Policarpio
This support group helped me to be more confident and learn how to be myself and take care of myself. Warm place to be, make new friends with no judgment. ~Patricianne Nankoua
I am very grateful that I attended this support group. The book was easy to read and I had “Ah-ha” moments. This was a great environment to share, laugh and cry. I feel much more confident and knowledgeable as I continue on my journey. ~Heather Stint
It has been my honour to be a part of Carolyn’s life and to witness her own evolution. She has been a great resource & sounding board of reason in times of need following the end of a 17 year marriage. Aside from being an amazing friend she has been a great mentor opening doors to life’s endless adventures! She understands the emotional heart & mind. Carolyn uses her own personal experience to help people open themselves to discovery & enlightenment. She is a master of creating feelings of acknowledgment, being heard and appreciation. Carolyn opens your mind to believe you can dream and live your goals.

Carolyn is an energetic, positive bright light! She is a seeker; constantly identifying opportunities to reveal the potentiality in her own life and others. She is warm, wise, insightful and has a great sense of humor. I have enjoyed every step of our journey together!

I have been practicing yoga with Carolyn for quite awhile and I have enjoyed every time she has taught me. She is very good at making you feel comfortable and at peace. She has a great ability to teach the technique at your pace and mould it to your needs. She is very good at making the practice fun and enjoyable. I always feel calm and happy after our practice.
I liked that the retreat was a personalized setting where I could be O.K with focusing on myself. Day to day life does not allow us this permission. I felt all the facilitators made it very welcoming to just be myself, focus on myself, and start to heal. The event had huge educational value! I loved it! The name “SOULstice” implies change, like the change of seasons. Very powerful.
I understand now that Spirit steered me to Carolyn in a time when my life was in a million fragments. Carolyn’s love and spirit helped me get to a place/space of self love embraced in the love of the Holy Spirit.
When I signed up for my first support group, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was for a book but I realize it ended up being a conscious awaking for me. The group was led by a Carolyn who welcomed and forged bonds with a diverse personalities and life experiences. Every meeting we learned more about ourselves and each other. The book was a conduit to learning more about who we are and what we want out of ourselves and others. Carolyn created a environment of accountability, consciousness and the joy of being who we are. The risk to grow with others was nurtured in a loving environment. I look forward to more of these experiences. Thank you Carolyn Collin. You are an amazing and dynamic person. I feel blessed to have you part of that experience.

I am delighted to have become acquainted with Carolyn in the past year. She is very dedicated and passionate in her commitment to help and support people in their healing journey. She is the real thing, very genuine, open, honest, and sincere. I love her humor and her passion. What I see in her is a demonstration of trust, empathy, and humility. But perhaps most important to me is her devotion to her own healing and awakening.
I found the support group the greatest tool to become accountable and really experience the momentum of personal shifting within a small group dynamic. I loved that I joined this group and when the ideas in the book got too heavy or not clear, Carolyn was there !! She was incredible. Carolyn is an excellent leader and a Support Group is a very low risk cost-effective method into the world of personal growth. Not to mention I actually read the book!! I usually have 18 books on the go and I actually finished this one-yippee. I also grew tremendously from listening to others peoples experiences, outcomes and perceptions.
Energy, commitment and loyalty are three words that describe Carolyn Collin. Her work ethic, her service to others and her ability to empower others to be the best that they can be is one of her unique strengths. If you need someone in your corner who is a good listener, has follow up and follow through, Carolyn is such a person. Her deep care and keen sense of outreach and sensitivities makes her a valuable mentor and coach. I would recommend Carolyn as a person who may be able to assist you in discovering your strengths.
Carolyn’s coaching style is one that makes me feel like I’m getting a giant hug and a kick in the pants at the same time. She creates a gentle and safe space for vulnerability, but isn’t afraid to push me when I need it. She holds the space while I discover and uncover, but also focuses on where I want to go and how to get myself there. Her genuine commitment to my growth is obvious and comforting and I couldn’t ask for a better friend and coach.
I have known Carolyn for over 3 years now. Our time together, limited through work until this past year where I’ve spent more one on one time, discussing personal issues that I’ve had to face. I’ll admit, at first I wasn’t sure where our relationship was going but after taking the leap and opening up completely, Carolyn has given me guidance with unconditional love and acceptance.
She has opened not only my mind to a different thought process but given me back my voice. I’ve rediscovered my self-worth, revalued myself and found my footing. This is all from Carolyn asking me the right questions at the right moments. I cannot express the gratitude I have for her being in my life and helping me rebuild my personal foundation.

These past three days have been hugely transformative for me. Along with your advice and empowering words, a Honey Nut Cheerios commercial has reminded me of my true purpose in this life, the honey bees are dying…and my greatest memories in my life were thanks to the hard work they’ve done. They kept my favourite smell and sight of flowers, trees, and plants alive, they grew the vegetables and fruit I helped my grandpa grow and pick, they’ve kept my favourite food honey on the table, and they’ve done so without ever asking for anything in return.
It breaks my heart to think that there’s a huge possibility my next generation won’t ever experience those things if nothing is done to help save them, so I’ve decided to save my Yoga Instructing for winter and keep my springs and summers open to plant wildflowers and assist bees and bee keepers in any way I can. Thank you Carolyn, my love and appreciation for you in this life is more than space, time, words, or distance could ever measure.
