  • Cielle Backstrom

    Cielle Backstrom became a Trillium teacher in 2006 and since then has assisted people in embodied awakening.  Her awakening in 2003 opened multiple inner doorways revealing just how "whole" life is and the huge range that it includes.  This led her to study several tools which she uses as aids to assist her students on their path of awakening. These tools include Focusing, Breathwork and energy healing. Cielle was a member of the Trillium Teachers board of directors from 2006-2011 at which time the board was replaced by an operations circle.  She has been part of that circle since 2012. She is also member of the Trillium Teacher's Visionary Council.
