Hi, I'm Cathy
It is my honor and privilege to support women from around the world on their journey of embracing and falling madly in love with themselves.
I’m so happy to connect with you here and delighted that we have found one another!
I have heartfully devoted myself over the past two decades to collecting wisdom, tools and practices that support women in diving deeply within themselves to reclaim their wisdom and wholeness through awakening the Sacred Feminine within.
My coaching draws from the lineages of Tantra, Kundalini yoga, Taoism, Transpersonal Psychology, Hypnotherapy and Shamanism. I have a background in Chinese Medicine, massage therapy and acupuncture, taught yoga for several years, and am a graduate of The Tantric Institute Of Integrated Sexuality. It has been a source of deep inspiration and fulfillment to have worked with hundreds of women like you, supporting their return to the inherent wholeness that is their birthright. My approach is highly eclectic, embracing the mystical as well as the practical while bridging the gap between mind and body intelligence.
My Journey of Spiritual Awakening & Deep Embodiment
In 1993 I found myself living in a spiritual community called The Lama Foundation, in the mountains of northern New Mexico. Having renounced the outside world, I immersed myself in daily meditation and spiritual study with the top spiritual teachers and thought leaders in the traditions of Hinduism, Buddhism, Kundalini yoga and others. In my youthful wanderings, I had innocently stumbled upon the awakened path of the heart. I drank it all in like a child in paradise.
I surrendered and embraced the Divinity in all things.
After three years of spiritual immersion, I received a strong call that it was time to rejoin the world. The call was so forceful, I gathered up my one-year old child and all my belongings that same day and made my trek down the mountain to rejoin the hustle and bustle. The day after I left, a forest fire swept across the Sangre de Cristos mountains consuming most of the trees and standing structures of the community.
There was no looking back. The Lama Foundation has given me a great gift that few have the opportunity to know so early on the path;
I got to experience the bliss of connecting with the truth of who we really are underneath the veils of the ego. Though these deep mystical experiences of oneness hadn’t been fully integrated into my humanness, the profound gift of knowing who I really am gave me the faith and the courage I needed to face the insurmountable healing journey I had ahead of me.
I spent years trying to earn my worth and gain a sense of approval.
I was tirelessly seeking love and belonging outside myself. After several long-term relationships and two failed marriages of feeling unappreciated and unloved, I took a break.
Reflecting on my life and all of the courage it has taken for me to get to where I am today, I feel deep reverence and appreciation for myself and my path.
And that wellspring of deep reverence inside of me ripples out to each and every woman I work with.
It was time to learn how to deeply love and honor myself.
So I spent the next few years in a relationship with me! I began treating myself how I wanted to be treated. I came to the threshold of knowing that I would never settle for a relationship that wasn’t in service to my highest good. Soon thereafter, I met my future husband who is still the love of my life. Breakthrough moment: If you want to find a partner who loves and respects you, you have to first love and respect yourself.
Awakening the Sacred Feminine
Finding the man who loves and adores all that I am is NOT the end of the story. No way! “Happily ever after” is a boring fairy tale that isn’t a story at all. We are human beings constantly expanding and becoming. Having a loving and supportive relationship has certainly been an instigator as well as an asset on my most recent pursuit and what I have come to know as my soul’s purpose; awakening the sacred feminine in myself and in the world.
A couple of months before my 48th birthday, I was invited to participate in a plant spirit medicine ceremony in Mexico. A spot opened up literally last minute for this 6-day retreat. My life was already going really well. I was happily married, had a thriving business and I loved my life so as I pondered my intention for the retreat,
I became acutely aware that I was avoiding intimacy. This became the intention that changed the course of my entire life and took it from good to amazing!
The medicine revealed an intricately carved golden gate guarding the entrance of my womb.
I had two important realizations: first, whatever lies behind those gates is holy, and second, the gate is locked.
A couple of months later, my family and I were vacationing in Tulum for Christmas. While we were there, I felt a powerful call to visit the ruins of Coba and to climb the tallest temple.
As I sat at the top of that spiritual site, I received the message that I am to participate in the awakening of the Divine Feminine on the planet.
I knew that this would begin with my own healing of the feminine and masculine energies inside myself. This is how I would learn to unlock the gate.
My journey led me to sign up for an epic year-long training to become a sex, love and relationship coach.
There I learned potent embodiment tools that changed my life. This was the embodied inner journey my soul had been longing for. I finally discovered the well-kept powerful secret of the Sacred Feminine.
I now guide women through an integrated process that connects the heart with the feminine sexuality.
The result of this sacred union is liberation and a deep sense of wholeness. And from this centered place, the sky's the limit. This is the path of Radiant Woman.
As women, we have been taught to look outside of ourselves for approval and acceptance, when everything our heart desires is waiting to be discovered deep inside. When we live our lives from this place of integrated wholeness, we become vibrant and magnetic.
At 51, I feel I have discovered the fountain of youth and vitality, and I want to invite more women to join me in their own self-discovery. That is what the “Radiant Woman” path is all about. The tangible result of this embodiment journey is that you get to step into your own radiance and inspire more and more women to do the same.
