YOU’RE A NATURAL.
You’re a powerful woman hardwired for a sacred life.
Even so, it’s easy to feel disconnected from Nature.
It’s frustrating to feel “in the dark” about ritual and women’s mysteries.
It’s hard to find an approach to magic & intuition isn’t super cheesy.
The Archetype Academy will re-connect you to your wisdom, the rhythms of nature, and ancient women’s mysteries.
Through aroma, ritual, and self study, you will find your way.
You will find your self.
Your Sacred Life
So, if you’re hardwired for a sacred life, why aren’t you living one?
While there’s no doubt you’re a born-mystic, our modern culture hasn’t provided you with guidance, precedent, or support in being who you are.
Or, has it?
Actually, you do have a pretty solid skill set for daily self-care rituals.
I bet you brush your teeth twice a day without having to write it on your calendar. I bet you put your seat belt on each time you ride in a car without needing an app to remind you.
Your ability is there.
All that’s needed is a simple switch-a-roo.
The same way you brush your teeth and wear a seat belt, you can do things like ground and center yourself, create beautiful altars, and have a daily anointing ritual.
The same way you remember Valentines day and birthdays, you can track the moon and the 8 holy days of The Wheel of the Year.
You just need to be shown how.
Hi! I’m Katie.
I love this work, and it’s deep in my bones.
I began learning about ritual and women’s mysteries when I was 6 years old.
Since then, I’ve honed my skills in symbolism, the rhythms of nature, and ritual consistency.
I’ve been a teacher of massage therapy, aromatherapy, and mysticism for 16 years. I’ve spent the last 21 years as a massage therapist.
Fluent in the subtle language of the body, I hold space for healing and growth with mastery and ease.
I walk my talk.
I’m an anointress, a concoctress, a teacher, and a ritualist.
The Archetype Academy is the culmination of my life’s studies.
In this one-of-a-kind course I use scent and symbolism to help you find yourself, your roots, your mystical aptitude, and your Path.
Because I want to live in a world where you’re offering your work and wisdom.
“I am incredibly grateful to Katie and all that she offers… she teaches birthright medicine in a way no one else does. She’s a gem, and what she brings to the heart is nothing short of spectacular and miraculous. Don’t miss the opportunity to know yourself through Katie’s eyes.” –C.H.
“Working with Katie Vie was a beautiful soul journey for my spirit. She weaves the seasons and archetypes together in an incredible tapestry of deep learning and heart opening rituals. Katie is a glowing candle, keeping the seasonal changes and our own archetypal patterns in an illuminating, soft focus.” — Sabrina L.
having time to unfurl your mystical nature, accessing deep wells of intuition, magic, and connection that you always knew where there.
Imagine a life where your’e clear about your Path and what you offer, weaving ritual and mindfulness into your days with ease.
What would it feel like to know your own seasons? Not just honor them, but live by them?
How powerful would you feel if you knew how to harness your energy to Nature, like hoisting a sail to catch the wind?
Imagine having absolute confidence in who you are and what you’re doing.
How would it feel to have support, guidance, and sisterhood to help you lead your sacred life?
It’s closer than you think.
Do you have a book shelf filled with how-to books for intuition, spells, magic, and goddesses?
Maybe you also have a drawer full of tarot cards, crystals, oils, and smudge sticks that you never use?
We could go one step further and pull out your stack of certificates from the classes you’ve taken that “taught you” or “initiated you” or “attuned you” to all sorts of wonderful, intuitive, magical practices.
You go to the conferences. You sign up for the retreats.
And yet, here you are, still feeling unsure of your wisdom, your power, and your birthright; still seeking a sacred life.
I’ve been there.
So, why didn’t all that stuff (the books, the tarot cards, and the classes) “work”? Why didn’t those things help you feel your wisdom and power?
Because, you missed a step.
You missed studying the most important divination tool of all.
If you keep on studying methods, tools, and approaches that are outside of yourself, you will continue to feel confused about your power and wisdom.
Without knowing how to read yourself, you can’t reach your potential at reading anything else: tarot cards, stones, plants, dreams, animals, or other people.
Trust me, I’ve tried.
The lure of studying all these other things is that they helped you feel your magic.
When you’re presented with potent medicines like stones and plants, and you “hear” or “feel” the communication, it’s awesome! The best feeling in the world!
Like “yes! I knew I was a super-intuitive magical being!”
It’s also appealing because of “Hogwart’s Syndrome”, or for those of us a little older, a yearning for Avalon, a dream of EarthSea.
We want to study Mystical Arts the way some people go to school for Journalism or Engineering.
So those books, and the drawer full of crystals, and the certificates aren’t for nothing.
It’s just that the cart went before the horse, that’s all.
You are a super-intuitive magical being, but without knowing yourself and being able to read yourself, you’re only scratching the surface.
It’s like worrying about your seat covers in your car when you’re about to lose your transmission. You know?
It’s time to stop learning about things, and learn yourself.
Find your wisdom once and for all.
Claim what you know is yours.
Hone your most magical tool of all: yourself.
Live that sacred life.
I’m pleased to present you with the Archetype Academy.
Here, you’ll learn how to claim the sacred life that’s yours to live.
The Archetype Academy is an online campus for archetypal mysticism and personal wisdom.
The courses offered in the Archetype Academy are deep-dives into your own nature.
There are 8 courses, or Archetype Self Studies, offered throughout the year.
Through writing, ritual, anointing, and connection with nature, you’ll feel your wisdom. You’ll live your sacred life.
This is the only course that uses scent and aroma to connect you to your self.
The Archetype Academy shows you how to use scent and daily ritual to identify and walk your Path.
You’ll bring sacred practices forward in a way that feels relevant to you.
What you Get
With each Archetype Self Study you get:
First, you’ll listen to an audio recording from me to you. I’ll help you settle into the main themes of the season.
Mystical Rhythms Calendar
Then, you’ll use your Mystical Rhythms Calendar to see the season’s holy day, special moon phase, Live sessions, and the rest period at the end of the Self Study. There’s plenty of extra space on the calendar for you to plan when you’ll assemble your altar, do your anointing practice, and your course work. This will be a valuable resource throughout your Archetype Self Study for keeping yourself on track.
Next, you’ll complete the Seasonal Primer. This 3-page workbook will get you started off right and prepared to get the most out of the course. You’ll be guided through 3 easy steps to set you up for a great season.
Now you’re ready to think about your altar for the season. This 3-page workbook will guide you in selecting the right place for your altar, when to set it up, and what to put on it. Altar Craft gives you just enough guidance so you don’t feel lost or confused, and plenty of creative license to personalize your altar. Whether this is your first altar or millionth, having support and encouragement is key to not procrastinating or worrying about it being “perfect”.
Then, it’s time to dive deep into your 40-page workbook. This workbook is your companion as you “work” the season, harnessing the themes of the archetype and what’s happening in nature to deepen your learning, growth, and healing. The Materia Mystica covers specific information about anointing, ritual practice, sacred tools, blending oils, holy days, and the archetype. After each topic, you’ll complete a potent writing exercise that will personalize the information and allow it to integrate into your life.
Materia Mystica Audio
I read all 40 pages of the Materia Mystica to you. By listening to me read to you, you’ll feel a connection with me and get a good feel for my writing. Since you’re engaging your senses by listening, the material will integrate into your system in a more well-rounded, holistic way. The audio recording can be listened to as you read the workbook, or while you’re on the go.
When you sign up for a class, you’ll get lifetime membership to The Archetype Academy private Facebook group that includes weekly Facebook Live sessions with me. You’ll be part of a powerful group of women who are also cultivating a sacred life. The weekly sessions will keep you inspired and on track. You’ll never feel lost or left behind. In these sessions, we’ll dive even deeper into certain themes covered in the Materia Mystica. You’ll be able to ask questions and have them answered, and feel my support every step of the way.
The Anointing oils are the heart of this work. Their scent is blended to connect you to your lineage, your self, and your daily spiritual practice. To encourage you to use scent as a powerful anchor on your journey, you’ll get free shipping on the season’s Archetype Anointing Oil.
The Archetype Academy will change your life.
You’re gonna be stoked when I tell you what the tuition is.
It’s not $397, which is what lots of folks suggested I charge.
Enrollment for each Self Study is
Yep, you read that right. Ninety-seven dollars!

What Archetype Academy students want to know:
What if I don’t know anything about archetypes or ritual?
Perfect! You’re in the right place. The Archetype Academy is the right place to begin your experience. You’ll get lots of information and support via workbooks and Facebook Live sessions about archetypes and ritual.
What if this season’s archetype isn’t “my” archetype?
First off, it’s fantastic that you’re working with a primary archetype! Here’s what to remember: you’re a “disco ball”; a multi-faceted being. You have the capacity to work with the wisdom of each archetype. If this season’s Self Study doesn’t focus on your primary archetype, I think you should do it anyway. It will connect you to the season, your daily practice & altar, and help you maintain your sacred life.
Is this course only for women?
The Archetype Academy is designed for women and female identified people, though men and male identified people would certainly gain insight from participating. The course language is entirely in she/her/hers pronouns.
Can I share the course materials with my friends and clients?
I’m really glad you asked! You’re investing money and time in this experience. In honor of your investment, don’t share any course materials with folks who haven’t made the same investment. Each person who accesses this course materials should enroll properly.
What cultural practices will be covered? Which cultures?
This course is inspired by ancient European earth-honoring cultures, which is my lineage. Instead of covering specific practices we’ll focus on bringing updated versions forward for you, the modern-day mystic.
What if I want to study all 7 of the archetypes?
Yeah baby! You’re speaking my language! Each Archetype’s Self Study will be offered during its corresponding season, and you can do every single one! Participants who do 5 consecutive Self Studies or more are considered Archetype Academy Scholars, and eligible for lots of great complimentary bonus materials including an entire Self Study! Click HERE to see the schedule of courses.
What if I’ve already done The Mystical Year or a full year of the the Archetype Academy?
This work is meant to be experienced in cycles. Just like there are no two winters alike, each time you move through an archetypal season you’re a different person with different needs and challenges. Each time you access this information, you allow it to go deeper. Students are highly encouraged to continue with The Archetype Academy as a life-long source of spiritual nourishment and community.
I’m planning to do The Mystical Year in-person masterclass in 2020. Will this material be repetitive?
Yes and no. The Materia Mystica will be the same. But, the focus of The Mystical Year is on the in-person experience, the live rituals, and the ritual apprenticeship. Already knowing some of the Materia Mystica will position you for a deeper exploration of the subject matter, like an advanced study. I love the idea of an entire cohort of The Mystical Year ready for “the next level” after having been in the Archetype Academy!
What if I just want to try it out before committing to more?
Smart! Each Self-Study course is offered independently. You’ll only pay for one season of Self Study, with the option to continue if you’d like.
What if I want to take a break and re-join?
No problem. You’re welcome to come and go as you please. You’ll only be eligible to become a Scholar by completing 4 consecutive seasons, however.
What if I don’t use Facebook?
I hear ya! But alas, it’s the best group forum I’ve found. Here’s a quick story. I live in Asheville, but took a class that met 5 times a year in a town about 3 hours east. I didn’t move to there, I didn’t run for mayor. I only went to take the class. So, you don’t have to become an active Facebook user (or run for the mayor of Facebook), but it’s where classes (and I) will be. It’s up to you whether or not you attend.
What if I live overseas?
You’ll have access to all downloadable course materials and the Facebook sisterhood, but unfortunately we won’t be able to ship your oil. Course tuition remains the same.
How do I get more access to Katie? Does she offer private tutorials or consultations to supplement the weekly Facebook live sessions?
Yes! Just give me a buzz at email@example.com to inquire.
What sort of supplies will I need?
You’ll need an email address, a Facebook account (only if you want the Live classes), and a computer or device to access course materials. You’ll need access to a printer to print out your workbook PDFs. You may also like to get 3″ three-ring binder and paper if you plan to print the Materia Mystica and other course materials. You’ll want headphones, ear buds, or a speaker to hear the audio recordings. There will be options to acquire certain “tools” like a chalice or hand mirror in each segment of the Materia Mystica. All altar and ritual supplies are up to you.
What’s the refund policy?
I totally understand the desire for a “safety net” before enrolling. Because of the subjective nature of this class (in that there’s no way to tell if it’s “working” because the course material is so deeply personal) there are no refunds.
“Belonging to a group centered around mystical experience was pretty much what I yearned for my whole life. Within each season of study, there was an honest lesson learned and a new perspective to integrate. My personal goals were not only supported and witnessed by a genuine circle of women, they were anchored and guided by Katie’s expertise in ritual facilitation. I found true purpose.
— Rebecca S. (2018 participant)
“Katie passionately creates a magical, solid space for thought provocation, delight, sisterhood, and realization. It’s depth with a refreshing edge and wit. You can giggle like a school girl and dive deep all in one day. I sit so comfortably here, it’s easy to explore my mind, heart, and soul and find cohesiveness. It’s a sweet place to land. –Tara B.
“I can’t imagine my life without having the knowledge and tools I’ve gathered in this program. Life feels so much easier when I’m in alignment with the archetypes and the wheel of the year. Through Katie’s teaching and Materia Mystica I was handed a container to live a life of integration and consciousness. I now can recognize the archetypes within me and value their voice. Through her channeling of ancient wisdom and rituals she provided a sacred space for us to gather, connect to our own ability to channel, and learn the craft of honing and improving our individual “super powers”. I am much more fluent in my ability to channel the divine that flows through me.” — Kari T.E.
“Katie Vie is a wonderful guide for any woman who wants to be little more authentic and present in her life, is curious about the feminine divine, and wants to form a more loving relationship with her self. I feel immensely fortunate to know Katie, and to be part of the loving community she has created.” –Katherine D.
