Caroline is a gifted speaker and teacher. She is a certified retreat leader for the Center for Courage and Renewal.

With many years experience as a community activist, she understands well the dynamics of community building.
In her own words
There has never been greater urgency in the care and tending of our planet as now. Powerful corporate structures of self-interest are out of control and seem unstoppable, but they’re not. BP executives and Shell Oil executives – like the rest of us – step into their pants one leg at a time. But at the grassroots level we seem to have been squeezed into a kind of numbness and paralysis, particularly in the light of Citizens United.
Our responsibility lies elsewhere. My speaking and teaching, my consulting and retreats are rooted in the fundamentals of heart wisdom and deep inner knowing. In addition to what the science has brought to us regarding our planet in peril, I believe that the right-brained transformative possibilities of narrative, art, music, and poetry as they deepen the spiritual practices of mindfulness and gratitude, are all around us and can inform and shape our leadership.
The eye you see is not
an eye because you see it;
it is an eye because it sees you.
