In just two short months, her coaching/prompting and guidance helped me take ideas I had in my mind for years, and turn it into a practical money course. I’ll be teaching it at a local Centre for Spiritual Living. They said it was an answer to their prayers! If you’re ready to make a real change for the better, Carolyn can help you make it happen.

My experience with Carolyn was very relaxing. I immediately felt at ease with her calm demeanor and down to earth personality. After that treatment, I felt like a weight had been lifted. The transfer of energy was amazing! My anxiety was gone, and first the first time in a while, I had a full, peaceful night of sleep. Overall, it was a very healing experience. Carolyn is a sweetheart, very professional. I have seen her twice now, and will continue my reiki treatments with her when I visit Edmonton.
I thoroughly enjoy & am challenged by her intuitive questions which serve as a springboard & often lead to higher ground & greater personal insights. The virtue of this truth is due to her mindfulness which is clear & radiant. Carolyn helps me uncover & tackle the necessary work regarding my blind spots & nonworking views related to my plans, goals, life's relationships, in general. This definitely, has reduced my uncomfortable, repetitive patterns to help 'clear the underbrush', absolutely...for better future contributions. What is not good, I shall not do again!
Additionally, during a number of sessions, we would ground-out ...by meditating together, using her very effective, but simple steps. This employs a thoughtless Process utilizing deep, slow breath work /10 secs. inhaling & 10 secs. exhaling, (6 breaths per min.) & repeating the Sacred Word during exhaling, while feeling open gratitude, love & inner peace during my inhales-- for each 20 min session.
Anyone who has had difficulty with meditation?--- should give this a try ...as it really works because it is so simple and easy to do! My mind never wanders, but stays on point focused & very relaxed, yet alert.
She helped me drop what was blocking my progress & additionally, helped me to increase my under-utilized skill-set. Carolyn helped me build a stronger sense of my own spirituality, wisdom & wholeness.
She is very interested & reverent about facilitating personal goals, key results & especially interested in increasing my ability to trust one's inner-knowing & self awareness, (Provides the fishing pole-- but not the fish!). Carolyn's open-hearted, respectful approach is like a bright lantern shinning Light on my self-actualization process. I truly sense that she serves a greater purpose and is helping out on a bigger plan ---so that her excellent community will shine brighter & life in her world, does not grow dark.
In short, I am especially thankful to her for helping me become more open, authentic & transformed into the best, integrated, global citizen that my Higher Self has longed & yearned for.
If you desire deeper, truer purpose ...accompanied by fulfillment of your dreams & goals, beyond your lower mind's patterns...then -- I humbly suggest that you meet with her at the 'threshold doorstep' to begin fully blossoming & engage what Heaven originally gifted you! to manifest, swiftly, while here on Earth---without fail.
I encourage any seeker to take that first step by making the tele-call to Carolyn for a friendly, Soulful & very gratifying experience. I certainly do recommend her professional guidance & service ...should you truly be serious about radical, but gentle change & progressive, healing Soulful growth.
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 exemplifies professionalism and personal ism in regards to coaching, redefining and mentoring one's life. Carolyn offered myself valuable insight and advice on how to guide my preschool children through the early stages of marital separation. She was able to show me valuable tools and resources that could be shared at a level that my kids could understand and absorb. I strongly recommend Carolyn to anyone, especially if their live's have taken an unexpected turn!

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.

I can’t thank Carolyn enough for helping me gain perspective on my life and my stresses when I first came to her. Her approach, structure and methods helped me to immediately feel like I was in good hands. I also loved how she was willing to share her own life experiences and personal stories. It is clear that she cares about her clients and is committed to their successes. I look forward to continuing to work with her.
Carolyn has been coaching me for a few years now. She has a very compassionate human quality, strong while still having a soft heart. She is inspiring and has an ability to make you feel an inner calm. Carolyn is a person that always sees your worth and helps you to believe in yourself and your value as a person.
She has helped me believe in myself again, creating new goals for myself. By her side, I have grown into a stronger person, who now can face anything. She makes any situation less difficult. I would like to thank her for her time, dedication and above all, always having a heart while helping me.
Carolyn’s calm demeanour makes it very easy to connect with her on a personal level. She is always one to sit and listen with an open mind and a gentle heart. She is very passionate about helping you bring out your best self and is always committed to your health and well being. Whether you see Carolyn for Yoga, a Reiki treatment, or sit with her for a coaching session, you will leave feeling balanced, relaxed, and ready for the next step of your journey. Investing in Carolyn is really an investment in yourself.
Carolyn is the best Life Coach and Practitioner this city has to offer. Working with her was an incredibly transformative experience. She is warm, compassionate, and professional; if you ever feel stuck in any area of your life, she can guide you through and help you bust through any blocks you might have.
I've been Carolyn's client not just in a one-on-one setting, but also in a group setting in her Divorce Care Support Groups. She helped me through one of the most challenging times of my life. The positive changes I've made with her have stayed with me, and I will continue to work with her indefinitely!
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.

Had an incredible yoga session with Carolyn. She's knowledgeable, passionate, and knows how to make you feel comfortable. Anyone looking for 1 on 1 yoga instruction should definitely contact her.
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.
Carolyn brings a mix of personal and professional experience in her approach to helping others. She personifies empathy and compassion, and has a unique way of getting you to open up and share personal details without threat of feeling judged.
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.
I have taken Yin Yoga class series taught by Carolyn as well as received a few Reiki treatments from her and find Carolyn to be very skilled and knowledgeable. She makes you feel very calm, accepted and at ease from the get go. Carolyn’s passion for serving others is quite evident; she is a shining example of generosity, kindness and compassion.
