Bow to your awkwardness. Kneel at the altar of your failures. Smile at your clumsiness. Befriend your incompetence. Laugh when you stumble and fall. These are all perfectly precious waves in the oceanic vastness of you.
Perfection is unattainable in time, but found only in presence; the presence of imperfection makes you real, and relatable, and that’s perfect. You’ll be consistent when you’re dead. Until then, celebrate your silly old self, your marvellous inability to conform, or to live up to any image at all.
Don’t bore yourself into a spiritual coma. Say the wrong thing, just for once. There is such freedom in allowing yourself to screw up, to be kind to your mistakes, to kiss the ground as you rise again, to adore the falling too.
Don’t let your spirituality numb your humanity, your humility, and most importantly your sense of humor.
My name is Kate-Marie and I hold a deep passion in being present with people as they listen, discover and learn the language of their own unique body. As a well-travelled Somatic Therapist and Soul Motion Movement facilitator, I find joyfulness in opening nourishing and safe spaces for community and individuals to connect with themselves and each other.
With over 25 years of professional and lived experience, I work across three key modalities that are woven together uniquely for each person or group. This uses my training as a registered Counsellor and ongoing student of the Hakomi Somatic Psychotherapy practice, Samvahan Vedic Practitioner and a Soul Motion® Conscious Movement teacher and many other tools (See the practice page for more information). The principles that guide my path are mindfulness, authenticity, peaceful and open dialogue, organicity (using our intuition to guide us), mind-body holism (all parts of us are welcome) and connecting with play and curiosity. My soul purpose is to keep alive the rich learnings of how to be peaceful and grounded in my own life and to be in service to others as they also find their way.
“Wounding or injury are not permanent fixed states, everyone is fluid, interconnected. All components of our lived embodied experience brings us into deep connection to our souls and each other. The medicine is right inside and Kate-Marie facilitates this awareness in community space, holding the group with incredible grace and grounded presence” Liz Hearingwell
