About Our Founders

Carrie Winograd Kaufman
Brenda Stoeke

We’re excited to introduce you to our creative center and doers of magical things. Carrie Winograd Kaufman and Brenda Stoeke – we bring a variety of gifts and experience to enLiven at the Green River. With years of hosting retreats all over the world, we’ve long dreamed of owning our own retreat and event property. The way this property came into our lives and how swiftly our vision came to life tells a story of “meant to be”. And, we’re looking forward to you being a part of this story too. 


With a certificate in positive psychology from the Kripalu Center and as a Y500 certified yoga instructor with a 14-year teaching career, Carrie truly understands how the busyness of life can take its toll on our wellness. It is through this lens that Carrie developed enLiven as an accessible experience with an intentional purpose focused on helping people practice meaningful self-care and create necessary and sustainable change in their lives. Through her leadership and coaching retreats hosted around the world and now in her local retreat space in Sandgate, VT only one hour from her home in Saratoga Springs, NY, she shares her passion and knowledge through creative workshops, sacred movement opportunities, personal coaching, and meaningful connections. Her students claim that she has changed their lives. And, she’s ready to help you change yours too. 


As a Magical Moments Facilitator, Brenda is a revolutionary catalyst that transforms the way you think about yourself, abundance, and illness. She uses her Master’s in Spiritual Psychology, The Emotion Code Practitioner Certification, and her Quantum Human Design Specialist Certification to create a revolutionary shift in your mind, body, and connection to spirit. This process removes all forms of struggle whether it is physical, mental, or emotionally based suffering. Brenda transforms what isn’t working into a manageable process of change.  She creates clarity to recover from physical issues, provides avenues of self-value to change your relationships and financial picture. Plus you gain clarity of what your purpose is by design.  She is designed to change your life for the better.
