In Step Up, Step Out, Carolyn Hart repeatedly confronts us with the challenge of ‘doing our personal work’ and from hindsight, invites us along with her on the journey of doing her personal work down to the bone. Her courage in revealing so much that was painful, puzzling, terrifying, and ecstatically liberating in her journey is the same courage that allowed her to dive deep into the wounds that many of us prefer to keep hidden or pretend do not exist. At this point in her history, she proclaims that she wants nothing more than to be an agent for planet-altering change and invites us to do the same. But becoming a change agent is far more than a proclamation: It is an irreversible commitment to the Wounded Healer in all of us—the only source of authentic transformation. Carolyn Hart has painstakingly lived this metamorphosis, and I urge you to read her book.
Step Up, Step Out is a brilliant example of the power of sharing vulnerably of personal pain and the journey to awareness, and inspiring others to contribute to a just and sustainable world.
Words in this book touched me so deeply. Carolyn Rose Hart gives voice to all who have struggled to find peace in themselves due to love deprivation. She paves the way on how to claim love back into oneself regardless of what others have done to us. Her bravery, not just to explore the world in search of love, but more importantly to explore deeply inside herself and find it, is exemplary. Her courage to answer her calling gave her back her heart. With the scent of roses exuding continuously from her loving heart, reading her story, we find she is indeed the Courageous Rose Heart.
Step Up, Step Out is an inspiring personal chronicle that has much to offer us in our collective evolution of global consciousness. Enjoy an evening with Carolyn as she imparts with candor and courage her story of transformation—from victim to a woman of vision who is making a difference for all life on this planet. A must-read.
This is an engaging story of a woman’s journey to wholeness. After retiring from the teaching profession, Carolyn Hart traveled the world and found personal healing and empowerment.

A good friend of mine recently recommended I connect with Carolyn because she thought we had some common travel experiences as well as similar interests. I decided it would be a great opportunity to meet a potential soul sistah, share inspiration and adventures and consider hiring Carolyn as a life coach. I’d been feeling ‘stuck’ around what to do with the rest of my life because my current career isn’t as aligned with my values and interests as I’d like it to be.
Carolyn and I began our conversation around my background and career trajectory as well as her background and I was enjoying our chat greatly. Then, we took a turn toward where I was feeling stuck. She asked me some terrific questions about what I thought my gifts were and such when something shifted. I believe Carolyn sensed the shift as well as the unspoken discomfort I was feeling. She recognized the obstacle that was preventing me from moving forward and gently offered her life experience around that issue.
She shared a condensed, albeit powerful version of her very intense healing journey. So this was the commonality that I hadn’t expected would arise– our childhood woundings. The Universe had presented me with a very timely coincidence. My heart was touched by Carolyn’s willingness to listen deeply to what was said and unsaid, to offer her wisdom, and then honor where I am in my journey. Until that conversation, I hadn’t realized I was looking for an escape from the very essential work ahead of me…
And all this during a 60-minute phone conversation with someone I had just met!
I have had the pleasure to work with Carolyn. My first introduction was at a book retreat that she and I had attended. After a couple of weeks, I was meditating and I was guided to call Carolyn. At the time, I did not know she was a coach. I am grateful for my intuition and the work she and I are expounding on. I look forward to getting into the deepest unfolding of my gifts with the coaching that I am receiving from Carolyn.
