Carolyn Libby taught in the public school system for over 25 years. She holds a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Southern California, and received a B.S. from the University of California at Berkeley. She also holds a master’s degree in integrative health science from Capital University of Integrative Medicine in Washington, D.C.
Carolyn began researching effective education in 1970 and gained national recognition for her research in gardening and farming as a method to improve reading and math behaviors for children. Increasingly concerned with the numbers of learning disabled children, she began searching for gentle, nonstressful and effective ways to enable learning. She benefited from a One Brain diffusion while recovering from shoulder surgery and realized that she could use that method to assist other people in dealing with pain, whether physical, mental, or emotional.
Throughout the years Carolyn has continued to research effective treatment strategies for learning disabilities, ADD, ADHD, and autism. She is committed to healing individuals with these behaviors.
Carolyn employs many modalities in her healing practice, Purple Changes. An important modality for all persons is Neural Organization Work. When anyone suffers an accident or injury, the brain maintains a fight-or-flight state that has serious consequences for normal day-to-day living or riding. The fight-or-flight state does not allow normal digestion, lateral movement (as in turning the head or opening the hips for riding), integration of sensory information, or the automatic knowledge of position in space. These fight-or-flight limitations can usually be resolved in an hour’s treatment with the Neural Organization Work protocol.
Carolyn is a One Brain facilitator, a Neural Organization Work practitioner. She also employs Reiki, herbalism, and hypnotherapy. She includes Plant Spirit Medicine, aura readings, and nutritional counseling in her practice. She lives in rural Oregon with 2 cats, 2 standard poodles, and 6 horses.
In Her Own Words…
I became very excited about One Brain integration when I experienced relief from both chronic pain and impairment of function in my post-operative shoulder. As a teacher I became even more excited when I learned that the One Brian System held the key to addressing learning disabilities effectively and gently. As I continue to facilitate change, I see profound and immediate results from people and animals.
The joy of ONE BRAIN comes from the knowledge that when you get better in one area of life, you get better in many. And it is so gentle, so easy and so much fun that you want to partake.
In my work with adults and children I have witnessed many and diverse transformations including: dramatically reduced test and performance anxiety, children able to read and write effectively for the first time, chronic pain and joint dysfunction gently released, the enabling of self resulting in positive progress towards goals, release of physical manifestations of stress, people able to do what they want to do and be what they want to be.
I am very willing to talk to people about the work that I have been doing, to answer questions, and to arrange to speak to groups. There is no charge for these types of conversations.
Appointments are conducted at my home or by telephone. It is my belief that positive permanent change is achieved gently and noninvasively. I also feel that a person’s willingness to change need not involve lengthy or costly treatments.
