About Candace

My name is Candace Blair, and I returned home to America in 2017 after working 20 years as a finance executive on trading floors in Zurich & London. It is a great honour and true pleasure to now focus my full-time energies on teaching and sharing the transformative power of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, Sound Healing, Shamanic Reiki, Sacred Cacao Ceremonies and Alchemy of Becoming. These practices have altered the course of my life, helping me to find my purpose & my passion. They have opened my heart to more love, an elevated mind, body & spirit and raised my conscious awareness. I look forward to sharing these inspiring healing modalities that I have allowed to transform my life with like-minded people like you!”

As for her credentials, Candace is KRI Kundalini Yoga certified by Karam Kriya in England/Portugal, has trained as a “Cacaoista” with Rebekah Shaman in Ibiza, Spain & London, and then furthered her Shamanic studies with Mally Paquette, a modern medicine woman from Awakenings in Sedona. She is level 1&2 certified in Shamanic Reiki and a trained sound healer using ancient gongs & crystal singing bowls. Candace is also trained in the “Alchemy of Becoming” methodology, helping clients to raise their level of consciousness by releasing trapped emotions from the body, the aura, & the energetic systems.

Candace’s business, Soul Fire Social, is a platform to share these ancient techniques and offer opportunities for like-minded people to join together in practice and as a community.

“I believe that by increasing our awareness, improving our physical & emotional health, and living more consciously, we can improve the quality of our own lives and those around us. Together, we can help raise the vibration across this beautiful planet and be a positive part of the ongoing dimensional transition!”

Candace runs two websites to support her community, being the primary business site alongside another website devoted solely to the healing powers of ceremonial cacao:
