Through my own healing journey of self-doubt and self-discovery, a process of learning to be fully present in my own body, I have embraced my path as an artist, spiritual teacher and visionary. My goal is to live from the heart, holding a space of self-love and acceptance where we can experience the connectedness, Unity and Oneness with Spirit, humanity and all of life. I use my gifts to create a healing atmosphere that allows you to awaken to your authentic self and claim your natural state of vibrant health, prosperity and self-expression.
“Carsten is a leader, a visionary healer and teacher creating a new vision of what it is to live in our bodies with health, peace and power. His techniques move people from fear and disempowerment to knowing that they have the power, vision and gifts to heal themselves.” (Sue Frederick, Author, Intuitive & Key Note Speaker)
My Journey: In 1985 physical injuries threatened to end my career as a performer. Finding no relief through traditional medicine I was guided to visit The Light Institute for past life regression where I connected with my Higher Self and gained a deeper understanding of energy and it’s relationship with the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of the Self. This understanding in combination with meditation and yoga enabled me to heal my body and approach my life with a greater sense of purpose and empowerment.
In 2006 while caring for my mother who was making her transition, I had the good fortune to cross paths with Emmanuel Illuminardi a Native American sound healer who was able to reverse the growth of my mother’s liver cancer. I was present during these sessions and felt the effect of a powerful healing energy. On my 52nd birthday I received a “sound bath” (a powerful energy healing and initiation) as a gift from Manny. A year later, as I began working one-on-one with yoga clients, I felt this healing energy flowing through me, guiding me to create the energy balancing process I call Carsten Energy Alignment™. In 2012 Emmanuel came back into my life mentoring me so that sound and vibrational healing is now an key element of my healing practice. Over the past 9 years, working with over one thousand clients, the Carsten Energy Alignment™ process has become an intricate part of my Mentor Program which empowers clients to recognize their innate gifts, and step fully into their own power and the natural flow of life.
My Performing Career began in 1973 when Diana Ross pulled me out of the audience to dance with her during her live show in Las Vegas. My career has included dancing, singing and acting, writing, directing and producing. I have performed in theater, film, television, nightclubs and cabaret. I have written and produced my own television shows, written, produced and directed numerous plays, cabaret acts and many one-man shows. I have also taught dance and movement to children and adults and have worked with children, facilitating theater workshops and intensives.
