Right from the beginning Kat managed to weave a very special type of bonding and connection in the whole group, through her own loving and gentle style of guidance and highly perceptive awareness of emotions and feelings. There were many ‘wow’ moments of awakenining and awareness for us all in the group, moments that sharpened our outlook on life in the most positive of ways. By examining our true selves and learning to love what we found our lives have been enhanced in so many ways including better relationships with our friends and families, more enjoyment from life, an appreciation of the ‘small’ things, and for me, my depression has loosened it’s grip. I can honestly say that I am a happier and more contented person because of Kat and Phoenix Rising.
The process was compassionately taught and the care and love flowed through us all as we danced, talked, laughed and held each other. My soul was given a full work out! Parts of it are still aching, but not with pain; with a yearning to continue learning more, experiencing more and understanding myself /others more. I will definitely be continuing my journey with Kat and hopefully the other kind and curious women I met that day.
I found it one of my most eye opening, harrowing, brilliant, exhausting, uplifting, healing and empowering things I have ever done. I can't recommend it enough. The journey over these 4 weeks has been truly life changing and have met lovely like minded women. Kat has been an amazing mentor and supported us all the way through, I 'm so grateful to her.
Being a member has been life changing. Kat's incredible leadership, with her gentle and soothing way of opening the hearts and minds of the group and the ground-breaking and perhaps controversial techniques that Kat brings to therapy are exciting and powerful. And of course the massive amount of love that has been generated as a result of us coming together which has formed close lifelong bonds between all of us.
This course has changed my life. After only 1 day and 2 evening workshops, my relationship with myself and others has been transformed. I can't actually believe it sometimes, just the speed with which its happened, and the things that are coming into my life due to my allowing them to.
Throughout that day I danced, cried, laughed, screamed, communicated, met some incredible like minded women and also healed a little bit of myself. Four weeks on we have continued this journey of healing and empowerment, and we do not want it to end. The support and love that radiates from these teachings is incredibly healing and I recommend it to any women that have 'Mind Mess'... which is probably all of us!
You will learn that half an hour dancing isn't long, and screaming and crying are good for the soul. You will glimpse your true self and love her; you will find ways to be brave and investigate your beliefs, and be astonished at what you find. What you thought you couldn't face you will. Kat has an amazing abiity to let you see that nothing you think about yourself or your situation is wrong or makes you a bad person. If the layers we've unpeeled in the first four weeks make me feel like I feel today, I can't wait for the next layers to be removed.
Of all my years of counseling this has helped me in a far better way. I broke down years of bad self belief and childhood/adult abuse and came together BETTER than I thought I could ever be. If you're gonna do one thing to help yourself, make it this! I promise - you'll never regret taking the steps and you'll never feel so loved!
Wherever you are I your own healing journey, keep an open mind and take from it what you need. The course itself was a break through for me and it's been a joy to share and watch the evolving journey of the lovely members as we continue down our individual paths of truth and sharing experiences.
Enjoy your day, safe in the knowledge that you will be well supported by both Kat and your tribe. Much love ❤
I have used Katrina’s tarot reading services on several occasions now and keep coming back for more as I am always amazed at the accuracy of her gift for reading the cards and her wonderfully surprising intuition. She has a down to earth, warm and nurturing manner and delivers her readings in such a heartfelt and caring way.
The insight and guidance given is always invaluable and has helped me to work through several blockages and problems in my life to a high degree of success! I have been to other tarot readers over the years and have often found them to be a little ‘airy fairy’ for my tastes, so it has been great to find a reader so grounded and more contemporary in her approach to reading the cards – less Gypsy Rose Lee and more life coaching in style.
Time spent in Katrina’s company always has a positive, uplifting and healing effect.
Five golden stars and two big thumbs up for the Beginners Guide to the Art of Reading Tarot course – what a weekend, two days of great instruction and helpful support and guidance, empowering us all to connect with the cards and trust our own intuition to deliver practical and heartfelt interpretations for ourselves and others.
The cards really came to life for me over the weekend, Kat takes you… on a journey – the Fools Journey – through the whole of the human condition… all of our experiences, supplemented with the practicalities of life, our thoughts and actions, dreams and passion and of course our emotions reflected back to us providing a snapshot in time that allows us to make a call on our situation and the options available to us.
The characters of ourselves and those around us can even be recognised in the cards – I am finding it an incredible way of clarifying my thoughts and feelings so that I can make the best decision available to me at the time.
Whether you want to work with the cards from a psychic or intuitive approach, perhaps for predictive reasons – or if you want to use them from a life coach / counselling stance for practical insights and perspective, Kat will support you and encourage your individual relationship with the tarot.
An incredible weekend of growth and insight for me – sometimes challenging when we don’t like what we see in the cards reflected back at us, but hey … its still up to us what we do about it. And we had some big laughs along the way – a very real, very useful course, highly recommended.
I have just been on Kat’s Beginners Tarot Reading course and absolutely loved it. It was one of the most enjoyable and enlightening courses I have ever been on. I have never done Tarot before, but soon as Kat started teaching us it just resonated with me. The Tarot cards have a way of making you face aspects in your life you may be ignoring and bring it to the fore so you can start working on it and moving on. Kat is a brilliant, enthusiastic and patient teacher and made the course enjoyable and fun, the girls on the course were brilliant like minded people and I feel I have made some friends for life. Tarot will now be a permanent feature in my life. Thank you
I received my reading and was absolutely blown away. Katrina has an eloquent, sensitive and highly perceptive way of reading. I'm so pleased that I made this purchase - it has really helped me to deal with a challenging issue. I know that I will use the document in the coming weeks for my journaling. Well worth every penny - filled with practical advice and encouragement whilst also helping me to sit with my emotions and clarify my thoughts. Thank you so much, Katrina!
Kat is a wonderful teacher of tarot she is very knowledgeable and is happy to share her insight and her great deal of understanding of tarot and how it can help us in our lives, she instils confidence in your abilities and as well as teaching the structure and meaning of tarot she encourages you to develop your own intuitive style and way of reading. She is truly a positive ray of light with a deeply caring and loving personality and with her professional and passionate love of tarot I have no hesitation in recommending her workshops and readings.
I’ve had two readings from Katrina and both times have been an absolute joy. Everything that was read came true and it empowered me to make some radical, positive life changes. Even when the readings showed dramatic change, Katrina presented and explained the readings in such a nurturing and entertaining way that she gave me the confidence to face the future head on. I’ll definitely be back.
I had a great time at Tarot for beginners. I went along knowing nothing and never having used Tarot before. I learned so much. The weekend was great fun and the knowledge shared by you, Kat, enabled me to feel confident enough to go home and practice. I’ll definitely be back for further courses.
To accept the challenge of the unknown in spite of all fears, is courage. The fears are there, but if you go on accepting the challenge again and again, slowly slowly those fears disappear. The experience of the joy that the unknown brings, the great ecstasy that starts happening with the unknown, makes you strong enough, gives you a certain integrity, makes your intelligence sharp. For the first time you start feeling that life is not just a boredom but an adventure. Then slowly slowly fears disappear; then you are always seeking and searching for some adventure. Courage is risking the known for the unknown, the familiar for the unfamiliar some unknown destination. One never knows whether one will be able to make it or not. It is gambling, but only the gamblers know what life is.Osho
