traceyTracey J. Moon, LMBT

Tracey has a warm down-to-earth presence and a deep intuition that helps her facilitate groups with clarity, spontaneity and loads of inspiration. She believes in the profound intelligence of the body and breath and empowers others to live and work with more awareness, happiness, resilience and hopefulness. It is her own relationship with being vulnerably human and her capacity to deeply listen – along with years of meditation, movement, deep rest and a fierce courage to evolve – that most deeply inform her wide capacity to be a healing presence with others.

Tracey has 25+ years experience as a massage therapist and bodyworker and completed her training at The Body Therapy Institute in North Carolina. She is a former faculty member of The Body Therapy Institute and is a graduate of the Spirit of Learning, a bodyworker teacher-training program. Tracey worked at Duke Integrative Medicine in its early entrepreneurial phase where she built the integrative massage program from inception.

She received her initial training as a breathwork facilitator through Clarity Breathwork in Costa Rica and has completed further training in Biodynamic Breath.  She is a Certified Integrative Reflexologist, has trained extensively with Claire Marie Miller and is now an international teacher in this reflexology modality.  In 2018, she completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India with a focus on asana, pranayama, yoga philosophy, meditation and sound.  She received her professional training in Mind Body Skills through the Center of Mind Body Medicine in Washington, DC in 2009.  Much of her work is influenced by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program.

Tracey co-facilitates retreats and workshops in the US and internationally with Sharon Nash on the topics of meditation and mindfulness, depression and anxiety, breathwork and sound healing and Integrative Reflexology. They are Approved Providers of Continuing Education by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork  (NCBTMB). Their workshops and retreats are open to all.

sharonSharon Nash, M.A.

Sharon brings a unique blend of heart wisdom and strong mind into her work. Her clear, direct facilitation style meshes seamlessly with her dynamic energy, playful exuberance, and attentive presence to create a safe and inviting space in which participants relax and reconnect to their own inner wisdom.  Sharon unselfconsciously shares stories of her own spiritual journey and its challenges to remind participants that they are not alone, and that through collective inner work we can foster a powerful sense of community to support and sustain us.

Sharon has a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Auburn University and a M.A. in Liberal Studies from Duke University.  She has had many incarnations as a teacher since 1990 including as a secondary mathematics teacher in southern Africa, North Carolina, and Guatemala; as a teacher trainer and online educator in North Carolina; and as a co-facilitator of healing retreats and workshops in the US and internationally with Tracey Moon in meditation, breathwork, sound healing, bodywork and reflexology.  Sharon has completed trainings in Integral Education, Non-Violent Communication and Clarity Breathwork.   In 2018, she completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India with a focus on asana, pranayama, yoga philosophy, meditation and sound.  She connects to her own inner wisdom and guidance daily through her intuitive practice of sound healing.

On a side note: With a shared vision of shaking it up and waking up, Tracey and Sharon stepped out of their busy lives in the US and moved abroad, first to Lake Atitlan, Guatemala in 2011. They let go of 90% of their belongings, left their comfortable salaries and environment in the US with the intention of breaking out of cultural conditioning, diving deeper into purposeful work and a healthy way of living and working. After 4 years in Guatemala and 5 on on Lake Chapala in Ajijic they returned to the US in 2020.  They love the vibe of the small city of Chattanooga, TN on the Appalachian ridge where they enjoy hiking with their dog Milo.

Assistants

Carolyn Cramer, LMBT

Carolyn brings a joy to breathwork in a way that helps people come back to a natural, fuller breath with more ease and relaxation.  Her grounded approach is welcome in the retreat space as she reminds us through her heart-centered presence to delight in the moment.  

In her own life she finds beauty and healing life through music, gardening and baking.  She is an avid world explorer having hiked the Appalachian trail and traveled throughout southeast Asia, a big leap from her southern coastal town upbringing in Wilmington, NC.  

Carolyn graduated from the Body Therapy Institute in North Carolina in 1998 in the same class as Tracey.  She has a music degree from the University of North Carolina- Asheville. Having a love of the mountains, she headed to Steamboat Springs, CO to begin her massage career but has since come back to the east coast.

Her work with Cultivating Inner Stillness began in 2014 when she attended her first Breath, Body & Sound retreat.  The transformations that she saw through the combination breathwork, sound, movement and meditation were powerful and she’s been part of the team and traveling with Tracey & Sharon ever since.  

Carolyn lives in Asheville, NC with her husband and daughter where she manages a creative and innovative medical practice.  She is passionate about bridging traditional and alternative wisdom and will soon launch her breathwork practice through her primary care home base.
