Carsten Spencer is a Spiritual Teacher, Intuitive Guide, Holistic Life Coach, Inspirational Speaker and Creator of Carsten Energy Alignment™ and The Miracle in 3 Breaths™.
Through my own healing journey of self-doubt and self discovery, a process of learning to be fully present in my own body experiencing fully the joy and wonder of this physical dimension, 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, acceptance where we can experience the connectedness, Unity and Oneness with Spirit, humanity and all of life. I use my gifts of intuition, energetic touch, movement, voice and vibration and many other tools to create a healing vibration that allows you to awaken to your authentic self and claim your natural state of vibrant health, wealth and perfect 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 1990 I began teaching yoga and mediation and leading workshops and seminars on wellness, sharing what I had learned. 1991, during a weekend seminar with John Bradshaw memories of childhood sexual abuse surfaced. This began a whole new healing chapter, which included 12-step programs and many forms of traditional and alternative therapies and energy work. During this period I worked and studied with some of the leading spiritual teachers and healers of our time including, Shirley MacLaine, Chris Griscom of The Light Institute, Shakti Gawain, Gurumayi Chidvilasanda, John Friend. Lalitha Devi, as well as many native and shamanic healers and light body workers. For more than two decades as I continued my healing journey I have shared what I’ve learned through yoga, meditation and wellness classes, workshops as well as one-on-one coaching and numerous transformational retreats and seminar throughout the Unites States and in Mexico and Puerto Rico.
In 2006 while caring for my mother who was making her transition, I had the good fortune to cross paths with 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 session myself, a gift from the healer. 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 Yoga Massage™ . Over the past 4 years, working with hundreds of clients, the Carsten Yoga Massage™ process has evolved to include Love Life Coaching, a synergistic life coaching/energy balancing process that empowers clients to recognize their innate gifts, heal themselves and theirs lives.
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, 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.
