‟I bought a sample vial of the Tantrika anointing oil, and I absolutely love it. I've been integrating The Tantrika oil into a long-term project of strengthening my root and sacral chakras, and I can say with certainty that this oil is strongly supporting my work. Thank you so much for creating this and for being in the right place at the right time!”

‟Katie created a sacred space that allowed for everyone's voices to be heard, and contributions to be embraced. The atmosphere she created was that of a comfortable, vulnerable one. I could tell all the ladies in the room were at ease, and engaged as Katie shared her wisdom, and stories. I've heard from many of the women who joined, and they have all mentioned they were changed by that gathering, and have a new awareness of themselves because of the insights Katie shared. Katie is able to hold space for amazing organic conversation at the same time showing herself to be the priestess of the journey.”

‟Katie Vie has a special way of holding space. It is gentle and heart felt as well as deep and introspective. Before this class, my thoughts were super scattered, and I had a million ways I wanted to express myself and my calling. Sitting with Katie Vie and the other women in circle with the oils and archetypes nourished my soul and offered a clarity I have been longing for!”
