Getting to the Heart of the Matter
I have often been told that my services help people get to the heart of the matter. Feeling frustrated, contracted, or like you want something to change, but aren’t sure what are all signs that you are ready to grow and expand beyond your current conditions. These feelings indicate that you are being called forward.
My style is one of trusting that we all have our answers within us, we simply need someone to listen, ask good questions, and help us discover our way forward at times. Each of the services I offer, help bring you home to yourself, where your inner truth resides. The work I am trained in will help you…
- Limiting beliefs
- Ingrained habits and behaviors that hold you back
- What you already know
- Your own healing
- Your path forward
- Your growth
- Your potential and possibilities
- Your Dreams
There are very few places in life where we feel truly listened to, yet we know that when we are heard, we heal. I create safe spaces in which:
- you will feel heard
- you will connect to your inner wisdom
- you will re-establish a sense of inner peace and knowing
- you will release stress
- you will strengthen your own grounded presence
- you will establish mindfulness practices that work for you
- you will discover actions you can take toward living your best life
- you WILL find a way forward
Insight. Clarity. Direction. Action.
As a Coach, I help people find clarity and focus around their dreams and goals. We all know the saying ‘I can’t see the forest for the trees.’ Often, we don’t know what steps to take in order to realize our dreams and goals. The dream may seem too big, the goal too daunting, and we become frozen in inaction.
As a Coach, I can help bring focus, clarity and direction to your dreams and goals so that you can take meaningful actions that are aligned with your true nature.Learn more
Kathy also offers her assistance to those who wish to create their own labyrinth. She has helped groups and individuals build indoor and outdoor labyrinths throughout the Maritimes.
What is a Labyrinth?
A labyrinth is a pattern that can be walked as a form of moving meditation. A labyrinth pattern will have one path that leads in to a centre point and one path out. As we walk the pathway into the centre of the labyrinth, we are metaphorically walking the path into our centre point, our place of inner stillness. This is the place where we are connected to our deeper levels of awareness and where we are open to receiving insights, answers and guidance.
How is walking the labyrinth helpful?
Walking the pattern of the labyrinth naturally quiets the mind so that we can become connected to our inner guidance. The pattern of the labyrinth helps us connect to our centre point, it helps us find the place where we are in balance. As we walk the pattern, it is literally balancing the energy of opposites, such as yin and yang, masculine and feminine, and it can naturally bring about a state of inner harmony and cohesion.
The labyrinth can be walked in many ways. A common approach is to walk the labyrinth with a question. As we walk and our mind settles, we begin to open to receive new information in relation to the question we are asking. The labyrinth can be very helpful to walk during times of stress, periods of spiritual seeking, when looking for answers, when feeling disconnected, or when we wish to celebrate and give thanks.Learn more
Spiritual Direction is a means of supporting others as they awaken to the spiritual in everyday life. This practice is also known as Spiritual Guidance or Spiritual Companioning and it is intended to assist you with listening deeply for the presence of the sacred in your life.
As a Spiritual Director, I am trained to accompany you in the exploration of the Spirit’s movement in your life by listening deeply to your experience of the Sacred and offering questions, images or reflections that invite insights and fresh understandings to emerge. Listening for the Sacred also involves listening for the stirrings in your own soul and holding them before the Divine with love and an invitation to learn more about where and how God is being present to your needs, desires and growing edges. The Spiritual Direction process is intended to help you develop and deepen your personal relationship with the Creator, God, Source, or Higher Power. However you name the Sacred presence, Spiritual Direction helps you attune to this presence in a gentle manner that encourages growth, deepening and understanding.Learn more
