What transformation is at the ready for you amidst the portal of this solar eclipse? What is Life, what is Love asking of you? Have you been contracting away from the beckoning of expansion? What's in your way? What has been hanging out in the shadows and holding you back? Do you choose to open the door to the life that is calling you?

Join Katie for a rejuvenating journey to help to loosen the coils of the body, mind and heart and unfurl into expansion. Participants can expect a dynamic flow of meditative intention, gentle movement, and trauma-informed breathwork, closing with an extended gong sound bath. This journey is systematically devised to impart healing and strengthening of the nervous system, as well as to improve the ability to listen and respond to communications coming from the body. May you leave the experience feeling more deeply rooted in yourself. May you leave feeling more deeply rooted in intention and your capacity to open to all that Life is asking of you. May you unfurl.
