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.

Walking in Two Worlds, a 10-Month Shamanic Apprenticeship Program
with Shamanic Practitioner and Medicine Woman Carolyn Romano
New cohort starts in February 2020
Carolyn is now accepting applications to join new cohort which begins meeting in February 2020, she encourages you to consider applying. Interested in learning more, start by scheduling an Exploratory Conversation with Carolyn.
The world is waiting for your personal medicine, those unique gifts that are singly yours to share wherever you are guided to share them.
What Can You Expect?
Luminous warriors. Earthkeepers. Wayshowers. Whatever the moniker that most resonates for you, we are all being invited at this time to raise our vibrations, to offer our medicine, to stand in the center so that no matter what is happening around us we can respond from a place of peace and strength. And, make no mistake, much is happening around us that requires our urgent attention and remediation, our unique gifts and strengths, our devotion and love.
The result? A transformed self that leads to a transformed world.
The program is delivered through a combination of in-person gatherings,* 1:1 readings/coaching sessions, online teaching/group support calls, and optional silent retreats or self-care moon lodges.
What Does Walking in Two Worlds Offer You?
During the 10-month apprenticeship, you will learn about and experience:
- Fundamentals of shamanism and shamanic journeying
- Spirit guides and power animals, and how to work with them
- Co-creative partnership with Spirit, important principles of manifesting, and how to identify communication doorways
- The balance of feminine and masculine power, and how to leverage it for inspiration, action, and success
- Presence and silence, and how to cultivate each
- Sacred space and how to create proper boundaries and hold space for yourself and others
- Shamanic healing techniques, like extractions, dismemberments, and soul retrievals
- Your own personal medicine
You’ll also have the opportunity to gather in Circle to make your shamanic tools, to participate in ceremonies, and to share with and bear witness to others on this path. Your desire to join the shamanic apprenticeship program could be rooted in the pursuit of your own healing, the calling to bring shamanic healing to others, or the awareness that it’s time for “the shamanic” to influence your mainstream career or family life.
Please note: Each cohort is different; each agenda emerges from my own co-creative partnership with Spirit. If you were part of the first cohort, you may apply for the next cohort without worrying that you won’t be a part of something new. It’s all new; it’s all timeless. Every experience allows us to go deeper. And if you feel like you are too much of a novice on the one hand, or too experienced as a shamanic practitioner on the other, please know it’s all new; it’s all timeless. Every experience allows us to go deeper.
Whatever the motivation, know that it is perfectly aligned with your personal medicine and the ways you are meant to serve.
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.
