I took a Sacred Bodhisattva vow to serve.
In 2012, after years of dedicated seeking, searching, studying and researching a defining moment occurred. Self Realization is only the beginning. TO live our greater potential, We must embody it and implement it as a life Truly lived.
I call myself a Conscious Evolutionist
I would not say I am spiritual nor non-spiritual, I choose the best of commercial, cultural, ancient, monastic and modern models for fostering COLLECTIVE FREEDOM. For those curious, I am someone interested in a conscious, consensual, sustainable or omni-considerate approach to the totality of human experience.
I am not afraid to be a teacher, mentor, leader, innovator, a humble and confident guide. It takes courage to stand up as that which has been misused in the past. I support both individuation and collaboration -the healing and thriving of man, woman, family and child - choosing to align with those who share similar values of “ResponseAbility “ and a respect for the process of change which includes Integral growth, failure and success.
What title would you choose if you were safe, supported, and free from the fear of rejection?
It takes courage to claim a chosen identity, to explore egoic mastery and to learn from that experience a Continuation of letting in and letting go.
It has been a profound journey, working with hundreds of individuals from over 28 different counties learning from each one about the incredible depth and potential of our human experience
Now after 6 years of letting go and letting Truth flow I would have never imagined I would end up here. Living in Bali, traveling the world, working passionately in the transformational arts.
Yes, there was a transition period. For weeks I stood in awe, in the rain, falling to the ground, laughing and crying sometimes in public, at the miracle of LIFE. My relationship to EVERYTHING changed. Literally everything.
My family and teachers supported me, as did the emerging clients & students who came asking for guidance, all in the perfection of DIVINE INTUITIVE FLOW.
I did not lose my mind. Instead, I found my true sanctity.
My whole being adjusted to a life beyond, way beyond, what I previously imagined and experienced as possible.
As a naturally curious child, I was always asking, "WHY?"
When parents teachers and others could not support or guide my questioning, I turned towards nature... often speaking to the clouds, listening to the birds and questioning the night sky.
When I was 7 years old, standing in the hallway of my childhood home, I had an epiphany.
"If I don't CHOOSE to BELIEVE what others are telling, I am free."
In other words, I realized I HAD A CHOICE. That moment I vowed to know, "What really is GOD, TRUTH, FREEDOM?"
Nearly forty years of voracious seeking - sorting through the truths and the lies outside in the world and inside my own mind - I experienced a series of extraordinary breakthroughs.
The seeker and all it's systems and strategies for separation, fell away as something woke-up. IT continues to unfold…
Although guidance is needed
The true guide is within
How did the Shift occur? What supported my Journey?
A combination of modalities from early years to now
It started with a willingness To be inspired motivated to walk the talk of change,
To be prepared, To be activated, initiated and guided.
A personal breakdown accelerated the process
But It was only Surrender that Awakened me from the trance of mind and this Surrender is open to All at any time.
Inspired by the powerful combination of intuitive & intentional practices; the feminine and the masculine approaches, mixing structure, systems & the formless
People sometimes ask about my name. The name Amara was given to me by Yogi Bhajan, the founder of today's modern Kundalini Yoga movement.
A year later I met Mata Amritanandamayi - known as AMMA, the Hugging Saint - who gave me the last name Samata. My family still calls me Carolyn and they respect that I chose to take a name that inspires me to reach my full potential
Together Amara Samata means:
AS I WAS GUIDED, SO I AM HERE FOR YOU. IT IS MY PRIVILEGE to do so.
In Praise of Amara
"If you know her heart then you know that Amara Samata embodies the meaning of her name - Infinite Oneness, with true grace and devotion, guiding and accelerating our evolutionary process that we may awaken to the Infinite Oneness from which we spring.
And while I recognize that these words might strike you as fantastic or overly felicitous, I share them in all sincerity to convey the catalytic power that Amara and InnerGuidance has had upon me. I don't have adequate words to express how grateful I am.
Through experiencing pronounced shifts in consciousness, transcendent expansion in awareness, and greater actualization of my innate gifts, I've been inspired to share the significance of this sacred inner work both privately and publicly, creating an inspired revolution along the way.
