What other FNQ women have said about Kathy's retreat day's

“Kathy, entering into the space today had me surrendering and being open to your guidance. I found the practice of dance such a wonderful expression for me, I love to move, and the gentle words you embalmed us with, gave us cues to reach deeper into ourselves. I felt freed of all inhibitions, safe and loved.

Tears came freely and without judgment. I felt like I was acknowledging all these deeper hues of myself that so often get suppressed through day to day life.My aim for coming here today was to find peace and wholeness within and I most definitely did become that by the end.

The food you provided was both delicious and nourishing, just like the the space you hold. Your voice is that of an ancient, American Indian woman, with many stories to tell and much wisdom to give. Your sound reverberated across the room, up into my body and will no doubt ripple into my life.

Ever so grateful for this opportunity. I truly believe it is a missing component in our society, that more women should experience the accepting of their whole selves and for others to bare witness to this unfolding. Magic.”

Jolene Reyes-Collyer

"Kathy’s day retreat was so healing and nurturing and fun. I received many realisations and messages, and felt so safe and supported by the other women there. Kathy is an amazing facilitator, finding such a nice balance between guidance and organic unfolding of the magic she weaves. If you feel like you need to shift something in your life, like you need to be truly heard or just like being amongst a group of beautiful women and expressing and honoring your feminine nature, then please join one of her events."

Ella Shannon Rusch

"Cairns women, do yourself a favour and make some time to nourish yourself! I've been to one of Kathy's sacred circles and her women's retreat day and have benefited so much from each. Go on, nourish your soul, you know you want to!"
