Carolyn T. Tongco, or simply Carol, believes that each individual, given genuine respect, presence and empathy, can discover their capacity to find their own inner healing path. Her passion is to use expressive arts, mindfulness practices and life coaching to connect, empower and bring healing to individuals, groups and communities. This is why she prefers to be called a “heartist”. She loves art and helping others. She founded Creative Passion Path and created programs to help people connect to their creative intuitive self and create a clear path towards life goals. She is presently working toward International Life Coach Certification and pursuing her dream of becoming a Registered Expressive Arts Consultant and Educator (REACE). She became an international student member of American Art Therapy Association (AATA) in 2013. She is currently a professional member of International Expressive Arts Therapy Association (IEATA) where she was selected as one of the presenters in 11th IEATA Conference in Hong Kong.
