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!

FIXED! when peace isn't the antidote to violence (new pod episode)

I've been trying to send you this email all day with my email system glitching. I finally thought I'd found gotten a workaround and the email went out blank. Cue noises of incoherent frustration) Hey, dear wolf pack - What do you think of when you think of violence and peace? Antidote? Opposite sides of a coin? And have you ever experienced shame, judgement, guilt, and anger? Have you felt bad about experiencing any of those? If so - my latest podcast episode is for you. As you may be...

Dear ones - Imbolc is a Cross Quarter celebration - midway between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox; widely celebrated on February 1st each year, although in 2024 the astrologically-derived date is Feb 4 or 5. At its heart, it tells us we are "in the belly," at the beginning of the beginning of Spring. And it invites us to take note of the subtle shifts which herald a larger transition, the tension of opposites and contradictions which exist uncomfortably side by side in any threshold....

Dear ones - A quick reminder that tonight at 7pm ET, we're gathering around a virtual fire for our first 'Sanctuary' gathering. While this will become a paid membership and monthly gathering, for these first few, we're exploring it freely, together. The idea for Sanctuary came from my own heart and soul hunger and those expressed by some of you, and the format has been slowly percolating in my head since middle of last year. I'm super excited for it to finally come forth. Since a few days...

Dear ones - I’ve been back in the States a little over a month now and I’m reminded: integration often takes longer than we think it will - the space between what’s here, now, and what we now know to be possible is a place of healthy tension, heartbreak, creativity, imagination… hopefully leading to more wholeness and vibrant human-spirit expression. In the turning of the seasons and daily cycles, the moon is swelling again to fullness. Which means… it’s podcast time again! As my...

Dear ones - In just a few weeks we’ll be at Imbolc (Feb 1st)- the time when the darkest days of winter are over and the energy of Spring begins to grow. In some of the Celtic myths, this is a time when the Cailleach, the ancient grandmother hag-goddess of winter, and Brigit, the goddess of youthful fire, did battle. Other myths say they are one and the same and the Cailleach dies and is reborn youthful until Samhain when she once again ages into winter. Some myths tell the story of the...

Beloveds - I’m struggling a little with words right now - too few in some places, too many in others. The things I should share bubbling and sticking. The things more tender and vulnerable just wanting to pour out of me almost too fast to capture, steward appropriately, share. Amid the ancient stones of the Burren in Ireland, a unique and incredible landscape almost moon-like in its barrenness until you look down at the cracks between the stones and see whole, rich ecosystems of plant life;...

Happy Holidays, party people! That first line hits funnier if you hear it in the rough, I've-been-sick voice I'm currently sporting). I was going to write to you all for the Solstice and tell you about my experience standing in the darkness in Bru na Boinne, in the inner chamber of Newgrange, waiting for a simulated sliver of light to appear, recreating what it’s like to be there on Winter Solstice. And then, shortly after arriving back on the soil of what is currently known as the United...

Dear ones - As we settle into the longest night and darkest days of the year, my trip is winding down into its final week and I’m in the liminal space between here and my return to the States. If you’ve worked with me, chances are, we’ve discussed holding paradox. We’ve worked with the ‘AND’ space of being between one thing and the next, between joy and sadness, between familiar and unknown. It’s inevitable, as we move through life, to experience thresholds. And these are necessary skills to...

Céad míle fáilte, mo chairde - dear ones - Last night, I was watching a movie and was startled by people driving on the right hand side of the road. Instinctively, it struck me as wrong. I’ve also started passing slower vehicles confidently and can parallel park on the left side. I guess… I live here now? And yet, I’m at the point in the trip where time is counting down, not up. 5 weeks left. I’m part exhausted, part enlivened, part ready for some ‘normalcy’, part still soaking it all up,...

Dear ones- I'm writing this on Friday night and I’m standing in a cafe, buzzing with voices and smells and the energy of a big city. The cafe is attached to the Scottish Storytelling Center in Edinburgh and tonight is the first night of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival whose theme this year is “Right to be Human”. A theme which only seems to feel more urgent and relevant with each passing day. I won’t say much because it’s not my field, expertise, or experience to speak to...
