Living on Purpose with Carolyn Romano
Living on Purpose is about creating balance, abundance, and joy. It’s about living in the center of our lives so that no matter what is happening around us, we can be at peace. Living on Purpose is about being “deliberately aligned” with the ways we are meant to serve and grow while staying open to experiencing life fully. Living on Purpose is a time for us to come together to remember our Divine selves, while we learn and wonder about, weigh and consider, and unpack and repack the mysteries, meaning, and sometimes madness of life.

The central “tool” for shamanic practitioners, shamanic journeying is the art of traveling within to the “invisible worlds” beyond ordinary reality. It is similar in some ways to a guided meditation and uses drumming at a certain rhythm to support a deeper meditative state through shifting brain waves. The purpose of a journey is to retrieve information for change in every area of our lives—from spirituality and health to work and relationships. I use Jamie Sams’ Native American Sacred Path Cards to tailor the individual’s or group’s experience and provide additional insight to support the journey. https://www.blisshealingarts.com/collections/events
In my own life, I have used journeying to help me heal, make decisions, and solve problems that sometimes seemed unsolvable. I even use journeying when I have writer’s block or have been stuck at a particular point in a grant-writing process, for instance.
Carolyn Romano founded Charlie’s Place Healing Sanctuary, an animal rescue that operates on a 25-acre farm in Massachusetts. Charlie’s Place currently cares for nearly thirty animals — from dogs to chickens to a very wise turtle — and the number is quickly growing. As it does, it continues to fulfill its mission of being a sanctuary for animals (be they furry or feathered or walking on two feet) who need a safe place in which to heal from illness, trauma, or both.
Nizhoni the sheep (and her friend, Zorro) are making the cross-country trek to Charlie’s Place in the back of a Kia Soul. On the face of it, the idea of driving several thousand miles to rescue two sheep might seem crazy. But at its heart, it’s an example of someone being the change they want to see in the world. And I think we can all agree that the world needs bold acts of kindness and love more than ever, as well as a real willingness to serve wherever we feel we’re called to.

She is a canumpa (sacred pipe) carrier trained in the Lakota tradition.
Carolyn founded Bliss Healing Arts to pursue her passion of helping individuals and groups achieve lives of balance, abundance, and joy. She expands her work now to include emerging women leaders who need support to remember, cultivate, and share their personal medicine with the world.
From 2002 to 2005, Carolyn was Program Director of the Theosophical Society in Boston, an organization dedicated to exploring Ageless Wisdom. In October 2005, she became the TS President. Along with her three sisters, Carolyn created The Frank J.

In 2016, Carolyn moved to a small farm in North Brookfield, Massachusetts, to create Charlie’s Place, a Healing Sanctuary for Animals and Their People. While still in its infancy, Charlie’s Place is home to Carolyn and her partner Curt along with four rescue dogs, 14 chickens, and a turtle named Arthur.
