Dancing Oracle Card Headshot ScaledMy name is Carla White Crowe (she/her) and I currently reside in southwest Ohio with my husband, two kids, four cats, and a dog. I am a seeker, mystic, dancer, nature and animal lover, and a student of astrology. I practice wild and embodied spirituality with an emphasis on the divine feminine. I love working with crystals, plants, essential oils, tarot cards, oracle decks, the wheel of the year, and the cycles of the moon. I am a healer and a priestess and my work is shamanic in nature.

My resume would tell you that I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a degree in dance performance and a minor in business. After college, I founded and ran a religious non-profit organization for two decades which at the end of its lifetime was home to four separate Christian dance companies. I also ran a dance studio for 10 years. I hold the technical art of dance with high regard and absolutely love to choreograph and teach in a variety of styles and genres. However, my primary passion and my sacred work lies in the realm of embodied spirituality that is shamanic dance, channeled and intuitive movement, dance divination, and somatic alchemy.

My body, heart, and soul are healing. In March 2020, I walked away from my 20-year dance career so that I could start over. Both of my businesses were built on a religious foundation that I no longer align with. In 2019, I found myself deconstructing my Christian faith after a long series of dramatic and traumatic events. Soon after, I realized I needed to transform the structure, vocabulary, and branding of my sacred work to reflect the person I had become. 

After leaving the church, I began reflecting on all of my life experiences. I took time to meditate, dance, and engage in some deep soul-searching with the hope of discovering what exactly my dharma was meant to be in this lifetime. It wasn't but a few weeks into this process that the name came to me. The Dancing Oracle felt like such a pure reflection of the journey I’ve been on over the past 15 years or so. So I said YES to beginning all over again. I said YES to a path that finally feels authentic and aligned with my highest self. I hope to be able to connect with you one day (whether in person or online) and share it with you. Meanwhile, you can read my personal manifesto below to get a clearer picture of my mission and core values...

From my blog post on 4-6-2021 titled "I Am Sovereign"

I AM a mystic...

  • Pursuing the mysteries of the unseen world 
  • Dwelling with the Divine
  • Seeking truth grounded in love
  • I draw strength from communing with nature 
  • I carry wisdom of the earth, sea, and sky in my bones  

 I AM a healer...

  • I live in service to the world of Spirit 
  • I offer insight, wisdom, and divine revelation through movement and written word
  • I share medicine from the earth and the night sky - from plants and from the stars 
  • My intention is to help people cultivate meaningful connections with Spirit, with themselves, and with others in order to facilitate positive changes within and without

 I AM a dancer...

  • Movement is a sacred tool that I use to inspire, communicate, and channel Spirit 
  • I dance to express my heart and soul and to explore my own creative energy
  • Dance is a vital remedy I utilize time and time again to move suffocating emotion and stagnant energy out of my body so that I can remain free  

 I AM sovereign...

  • I choose my own path, create my own magic, and trust wholly in my body, heart, and soul 
  • I decide who and what is allowed into my energetic field
  • My faith requires no explanation because words cannot fully convey my experiences 
  • My guiding compass is my intuition 
  • I take action in the timing and manner that is aligned with my highest and most authentic self 
  • I honor MY truth and stand in MY power
