A Mystical Immersion
Sit in circle.
Rekindle your magic.
Remember the ancient ways of women in ritual.
Join me in my woodland apothecary for 3 days in Asheville, NC for a traditional in-person experience.
Leave trusting yourself and the skills that are your birthright.
Hi! I’m Katie.
In this one-of-a-kind course I use scent and symbolism to help you find (rekindle, recharge, restore) yourself, your roots, your mystical aptitude, and your Path.
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.
I’ve been a teacher of massage therapy, aromatherapy, and mysticism for 16 years. I’ve spent the last 22 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.
For Women who
- want to study mysticism through a lens of the body and the senses

A traditional in-person experience where you’ll

What Awaken the Mystic participants want to know
How is this different from your online classes?
My in-person facilitation is exceptional. Specializing in embodied teaching methods, I’m a master space holder. Attending a live session with me allows you to experience my channeled information (and my dynamic wit and humor). I’ll be able to “read” you, and offer you fine-tuned guidance at an in-person experience.
What if I’m not a “practitioner”?
If you’re in the world, you’re offering your work. So, you may not be a “professional”, but you are a practitioner; someone practicing self-care, offering love and support, and holding space for people in your unique way. You will be able to use and apply the information taught in class easily.
What do I get to take home?
You’ll get a 50-page work book beautifully set in a 3-ring binder, potions made in class, divination cards drawn each day, spells and formulas created for you by your fellow students, and other goodies.
What else do you provide in the class?
You’ll be greeted each day with a warm pot of my famous “seed tea” and fresh well water. I’ll also provide light snacks like apples and nuts. Your classroom will be set up with floor cushions, and chairs will be available to women who prefer that. The apothecary or outdoor classroom will be filled with beautiful aroma from the fire and/or incense, soothing music and maybe the distant tolling of wind chimes. Blankets and throws will be available for cozy comfort. Heat & A/C are available in cases of uncomfortable weather. I also have some surprises up my sleeve.
Where do I stay?
You’re responsible for your own off-site lodging. Asheville boasts some of the most elegant, charming lodging in the country, from quaint Airbnb’s to upscale hotels.
What about lunch?
You’re encouraged to bring your lunch and enjoy it at the apothecary. Lunchtime is usually when women hang out and chat, take quiet solo walks, or rest. You’ll get lots more info on logistics upon your enrollment.
Is this a teacher training?
No. This experience is designed for your personal growth and evolution. The methods, materials, and information presented are not available for re-purposing for your own professional offerings.
Why is this a prerequisite for The Mystical Year?
Awaken the Mystic will prepare you with the key concepts and foundational information unique to my work. After receiving this information and experiencing my teaching methods, you’ll know if you’re ready for an even deeper dive.
What types of women usually attend these classes?
Openhearted, soulful women with an interest in embodiment, the senses, and personal growth attend Awaken the Mystic. Participants usually range in age from mid 20’s to 60’s. Women who attend have a connection and curiosity with nature, lineage, ritual, and women’s mysteries. Some participants are brand-new to this type of learning, and some are quite experienced.
Will we get to smell the Archetype Anointing Oils?
Yes! You’ll do a powerful Archetype Mapping divination during your first afternoon that includes smelling at 7 of the oils. You’ll also get a special 20% savings on all oils purchased while you’re at the apothecary for class.
I have more questions. Who can I ask?
Great! Just email Jess the admin goddess at email@example.com with “ATM Question” as the subject.
