Toronto soul coach and activist Kimberly Carroll heeds the call of the pharaohs

WhatsOn Feb 02, 2017 by Laura Ranieri City Centre Mirror

It’s a long way from Christie Pits to Cairo, but Kimberly Carroll is making her first “soul journey” there next January 13-22, 2018 with a small group in pursuit of pyramids, personal growth, and the wonders of Egypt.

As a former TV star and animal activist Carroll is not your average life coach - or tour guide, for that matter.  A fiery redhead, she infuses a passion and powerful presence into her work as a Body/Mind/Spirit Coach and communications lead for Animal Justice Canada. Her trademark Life Reboot programs are held in her cozy loft-space just north of Bloor Street. Small circles of individuals gather there to soak in her inspiration, while munching on vegan dips and carrot sticks, and launch into a powerful practice to step into their power.

“I help people heal and break through their blocks in order to ignite their personal and professional lives and the world around them. My mantra is: Find Your Centre. Love Your Life. Ignite The World.”

Egypt may be a first, but Carroll has made plenty of journeys. Born in small town Brandon, MB, she traveled to Toronto to study Radio and Television arts at Ryerson – also throwing herself into the acting, music and sketch comedy scene. Her first job was as a news reporter in Brandon, and then, as a Winnipeg-based arts and entertainment reporter. In 2002 she hit the road to live overseas and perform street comedy shows in Amsterdam, India and Australia – hardcore training for a passionate world citizen in the making. Back in Toronto in 2004, her star began to rise with TV gigs including the role of the crazy redhead host on “Take this house and sell it.” Today, with her many stints on CBC, CTV, ENow and W-Network she figures she’s logged about 500 hours of live TV time.

“Doing live television and improv taught me about the power of being fully in the moment, and now I teach all about mindfulness and the importance of being present -- it's where all the magic happens,” says Carroll.

The transition to coach was a dramatic one. She had become a driven young woman living a somewhat glamorous TV star life, but was not happy.

“Basically, I had become an overachieving zombie. The thought of getting to the end of my life and realizing I’d missed being present for most of it scared the hell out of me, so I embarked on a serious mission to wake up.”

The next powerful journey she took was through intense coaching with the world-renowned Soul Coach Denise Linn. Through it, she found her inner power and her life calling. Kimberly opened her own Soul Coaching practice in the Annex in 2009.

Carroll has also become a tour-de-force in the animal rights arena. She helped found Mercy for Animals Canada that conducted investigations into factory farming. As communications strategist for Animal Justice Canada, she recently co-created the the biggest animal rights billboard to ever run across the country. Together with partner Matt Noble, Carroll also runs the Toronto Vegetarian Food Bank which provides cruelty-free and healthy groceries to those living under the poverty line. Not bad for a Manitoba girl brought up on steak and KFC?

This passion for animal rights will also impact her upcoming Soul Journey Egypt tour, with a portion of the proceeds to be divided between Animal Justice Canada and the Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals.

“With her inspirational talents, Kimberly was a natural to head up our Soul Journey to Egypt,” says tour organizer Anna MacKay of Your Journey travel. “With Kimberly at the helm, keeping aware and laughing every step along the way, this won’t be your grandmother’s trip to the pyramids, that’s for sure.”

“How powerful it will be to walk in a land where the connection to the ancients is so visceral,” says Carroll. “The treasures and mysteries of Egypt will create a portal to connecting to the treasure and mysteries of ourselves: The ancient temples, bustling markets and untouched villages will be a perfect setting to build a monumental year ahead. It's going to be fun, soulful, ALIVE, with a dash of rowdiness.”
