What People Are Saying

"As an entrepreneur and an artist, life gets complicated quickly for me with many well-intended distractions that could cloud my judgements and take me farther from my callings. This class and retreat gave me the clarity and strength to hear the sounds of others along this journey like echoes in the cave I am exploring. I am not alone. And I've got many people to support me in my quest for success. That is the unexpected gift for me. Thank you for giving me back my vulnerability so that I could find my tribe.”

~ Brenda Magnetti, Head of Strategic Planning, 9Roofs Marketing, Chicago, Illinois


"There is no set career path for being a poet or a storyteller. A spark of passion is a start, but you need more. I clarified my vision, set new goals, and found renewed energy for the work that was paying my bills. I also found a path away from that work and into something attuned to my truest callings. Don't get me wrong -- that path is long and I am still on it. I have been more inspired and more courageous  along the way. What they offer in this course is truly amazing, and I am so thankful I was part of it."

~ Caleb Winebrenner, teaching artist, storyteller, and cartographer, New York



"You'll meet yourself in unexpected ways, and it will feel like home.”

~Mary Silwance, writer and teacher, Kansas City, Missouri



"I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up, but what I got was so much more than I could have imagined. Not only did I connect with people who will forever be in my life, I was able to learn, grow and evolve alongside of them. The teachers are brilliant together and individually. I feel so honored to have had the chance to learn from them. Your Right Livelihood is a journey that is worth every ounce of your investment -- time, energy, financial, emotionally."  


~ Jade Eby, entrepreneur, consultant and author.


"When I signed up for Your Right Livelihood, I was hoping to discover what my (later) adult life was calling me to do, and if my childhood passions were still relevant as an adult. I discovered answers to these questions and so much more. As a bonus, the tools and resources that were provided can be used over and over again to revisit and continue this amazing journey of personal discovery. The "Secret Sauce" that made it even more magical are Caryn and Kathryn - a dynamic duo of skill, wit, wisdom and personality. If you think you want to experience Your Right Livelihood, you do. Just sign up and thank me later."


~ Cheryl Kane, poet, writer, and Community Relations Manager, The Parent Child Center of Tulsa, Oklahoma
