Carol is a seeker, a journeyer, and a learner. After successfully building an integrated health center and establishing a practice as a professional counselor/psychotherapist, she returned to graduate school, and she is now completing her PhD.  Carol integrates into her life daily practices of meditation and contemplation. The concept of Journeys without Walls began as a question about how she might broaden the scope of her own healing work without the limitations of a physical space and available time. This program is a reflection of the gifts that come from self-reflection, personal practice, and the collective desire of others who wish to participate in journeys without walls.
