Hi! I'm Kate - an intuitive, medicine woman, and guide for embodied Presence

one week until my next big adventure!

Published 9 months ago • 2 min read

Dear ones -

This is a life update I wrote for my Patreon community and I wanted to share it with you, too:

One week from tomorrow, I'll be getting on a plane to Scotland and Ireland... for four months!

I used to travel like this all the time but it's been a while and there's a lot of life between me and those last times. I'm finding myself filled with the usual nerves and excitement and uncertainties... as well as some new nerves and uncertainties which seem to be carrying a lot of baggage from some moments in that life between.

A beautiful opportunity to keep tending my own wholeness and choosing my own humanity.

I share all this partly as an update, but also partly because one of the things I'm finding myself deeply excited by about the upcoming trip is the cultures of storytelling still intact and present in these countries.

Last week I recorded a new podcast episode with an amazing medicine womxn and ceremonialist, Kat Hargreaves (can't wait for that one to come at the end of this month or in early September), and we were ruminating on how the medicine we ultimately bring to the world works us before we can serve it.

I was always a storyteller. As a child, when my parents would have parties, I would make their friends tell me stories from their childhoods and after one listen, I would have that story stored in my head and pull it out at the next gathering to tell others.

I would line up all my stuffed animals and read books out loud to them (making sure they got to see the pictures after each page, before turning to the next one, of course!).

I wrote and illustrated my own stories - fictional and non.

I also danced and acted for many years, telling stories through my body.

And then, somewhere along the way, some of those pieces of me got buried.

But a few years ago came the whisper to start a podcast.

It's true - before this podcast became a thing in the world, it was a whisper in my heart.

I put it off for a while, but once I began, like medicine, it began working me; bringing pieces of me back into the light after many years; deepening my understanding of myself and what I am perfectly designed to offer the world, in service to the expansion and evolution of Love.

And so, I continue to listen to what wants to come through me. And am as excited as you (hopefully) are to see how this space as a gathering place of stories, ceremony, humanity, and good medicine continues to evolve.

We gather for our online monthly community gathering tomorrow, Tuesday Aug 15th, at 5:30pm ET. There will be beautiful stories and the kind of connection our hearts need.

All are welcome and I hope to see you there <3

(Current Patrons: I'll share the Zoom link inside our space.)

With much love, excitement, and nerves -

Kate

Hi! I'm Kate - an intuitive, medicine woman, and guide for embodied Presence

I care with every fiber of my being that you, a creature of soul and soil, are trying to thrive in systems not designed for you. Where ancient wounds of disconnect, inherited traumas, and misalignments with our over-culture leave you feeling out of place, too much, or like a canary in the mine, I see invitations back deeper into your own aliveness; vital next steps to a wiser, more relational future. Let’s navigate your big questions and transitions together. I’ll support you living meaningfully in this world even though you may feel like you were designed for a different one. I’ll keep you orienting to the truth, heart, and essential wholeness of who you are at the edge of great joy and when you need your feet held to the fire of your own journey. You can see what I offer: www.wildsacredjourney.com and sign up to get a little bit of me, direct to your inbox!

Dear ones - I write to you today from a friend’s house outside of Boulder, CO - where, after over two months in the desert, I find myself in awe and wonder at the variety of green, green grasses. It reminds me how quickly we can attune and adapt ourselves to an environment and how small shifts at the level of environment can profoundly affect our subtle and physical body - and all the other aspects of our experience which are woven into those. Today is the full moon and so… we have another...

Dear ones - I hope you had a beautiful Beltane (for those in the Northern Hemisphere - Samhain for those in the Southern) - a time when the veil is thin between this world and the other and life is either at the height of bursting forth or at the beginning of its deepest diminishment. There are times when it feels so grounding to tune into the cycles of the year - nature’s rhythms. And times when the beauty of the continual flow of life feels so dissonant with the happenings of our human...

Dear ones - Happy Full Moon in Scorpio - a time for leaning into the death of things which are ready to release to make way for new life and aliveness. I write to you today from the mountains outside of Santa Fe where the warm sun balances the cold wind as it sighs through the cedars; and the full moon is bright enough to cast shadows while the coyotes yip and howl all night long. There are blooms. And on the highest peaks, there’s also still snow. Today’s podcast episode is a continuation of...
