Teachers & Facilitators
We are all teachers, deepening our knowledge through experience with each other as divine beings. We do not teach what we know, but teach who we are; in the process we shine a light on your own wisdom, awakening the teacher within, so you can realize your potential and power over your life through conscious choices.
Carien travels internationally offering her vast experience and expertise as a yoga teacher, body worker and Inner dance facilitator. Known for her integrity, passion for service and innate ability to activate lasting results, throughout her travels, she has been introduced to different spiritual modalities, from a wide range of wisdom traditions including Hinduism, Buddhism and Tibetan Tantra. That being said, she recognises that these different paths are all but part of the ultimate truth as one. Her focus is on igniting the inner knowing within oneself, and by connecting with the inner light, the wisdom arises. Her aim is to bring balance to the internal feminine and masculine energies, raising the personal vibration to the higher levels, shifting from a “lack” mentality to one of abundance, so abundance attracts abundance, happiness attracts happiness, and love attracts love – truly living in the universal law of mirroring.
After many years in the corporate world, Flordeliza Pesigan became a full-time artist in a nomadic life of flow and trust while also in search of physical healing. Having experienced various healing modalities that turned into initiations and activations from many different mentors, healers, and shamans, she started deepening into self-illuminating practices and explored Sound healing, 5 Elements activation, Movement therapy, Reiki, Somatic Healing, Tantra, Shamanic practices, Light Code transmissions and Inner Dance. Combining all that she has learned in her travels and her life’s work and practices as a creative soul, she now shares ”Creative Alchemy” which offers self-illuminating, transformative, healing, creative journeys, ceremonies, and retreats together with Inner Dance Process around Asia and the Middle East. She also gives Inner Dance Energy School and Facilitation Training. Everyone’s different so she intuitively mixes or layers her offerings into however it is needed and appropriate for each person to fully connect and experience the self.

Serena, originally from New York, has been living in South East Asia since 2011. Highly intuitive since birth, Serena has always found solace and connectivity in nature. After attending university in New York City, arriving to the complexities of this urban matrix only two weeks prior to 9/11 and staying for 6 years, Serena was ready to re-immerse in forest living where she could begin to deconstruct much of the social matrices and underlying dissipative structures she found herself in observation of while living in NYC. This brought her to the San Bernardino National Forest where she facilitated experiential science-based ecology and environmental classes for thousands of children all across Southern California. Then, in June 2011, while participating in a Wilderness First Responder course in the mountains of Massachusetts, Serena was struck by lightning. While already having had a strong relationship with electricity before this event, this strange synchronistic moment catalyzed an intense ripple effect of varying phenomena that eventually led Serena to live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – a city with some of the most grounded lightning strikes on the planet. Exactly one year after the lightning strike, Serena experienced her first inner dance – which in it held electric vibrations three or four times stronger than the lightning strike itself. Transformation and hypersensitivity was nothing new for Serena, therefore leading her to deeply trust what her experience spoke and how it would continue to change her life in relation to the greater dreams of a planet and the visions she herself knew as real. Now, Serena combines her love of learning, healing, community, science, and integrative wholeness systems into all she is. Finding flow within the forms and the formless, life is no longer a doing but a remembrance of being while creating spaces for gifting each other with possibilities for resonant change and transformation.
