Chakra Tales

Putting a New Spin on your Stories


I am excited to announce a NEW Original class that you can experience from home. NOW is the time to re create your Energy Field, and your Chakras, to reflect lessons learned and the ways in which we want to proceed. With new awareness and new information about life on Earth we can upgrade our lives by re setting our energetic matrix to allow new information to flow through us.


I have updated my 'Chakra Tales' student workbook, (2001), and added 8 YouTube videos for you to play with at home. You will receive weekly written lessons and videos that will guide you on a journey through your personal energy field. We will use sound, color, music, meditation, movement to activate and clear each chakra. You get to draw and write and re write yourself into a NEW YOU. 


This is NOT a Zoom class, but a self directed, self chosen time that you have at home.


$100 for 8 lessons and videos. Payment can be made to [email protected] via PayPal.


Available June 15, as a Home Study

Well Breast Massage

For Licensed Massage Therapists

And self care by non therapists

August 15, 2020 

9-1pm  $75    4CE

in Bellingham, Wa

Breast Massage is a technique that promotes circulation and drainage of lymph in breast tissues, thereby ridding the body of the accumulation of toxins which cause painful cysts and eventually disease. Although generally taught as a self-help technique, many women would rather receive regular Breast Massage from a licensed massage therapist than perform the massage themselves.

The Purpose of this course is to cover all aspects of a therapeutic Breast Massage, including anatomy and physiology of breast tissues, normal breast changes over a woman's lifetime, massage techniques to use with clients, draping, marketing, consent for treatment, contraindications, prevention and self care massage, diet choices for breast health, acupressure to free the chi flow through breast tissues. Implications and results of pre and post surgical massage.

Caryn makes a special Breast Massage oil for this class and to use in treatments. There is also a companion DVD which explains Anatomy & Physiology of Breast tissues, has several demos and a self care treatment.

Caryn has 15 years of experience in teaching Well Breast Massage and working with clients. She began an International study in 2007 on Well Breast Massage based on research from the Women's Health initiative.
