“I’ve had the deepest pleasure of sitting with Katie Vie for a few different incarnations of her magic…and magic it is. Katie creates and provides a safe, rooted foundation that allows your soul and body to explore and experience the beautiful liminal space that comes with gently tuning out of the logic and tuning into the intuition thru our sense of smell. With experience, book knowledge, humor, sass and the deepest kindness, Katie helps you step into the mists of play that help you recognize your truest self. What a complete joy!” — Cici K. (2018 Awaken the Mystic Pod 1)

Winter Solstice gathering
Near the winter solstice, all 3 Awaken the Mystic “Pods” will gather for a beautiful ritual of culmination and sisterhood. We will gather “on the island” at Magictown Movement Studio/ Marshall High Studio in Marshall NC (about 30 minutes north west of Asheville) for this ritual.
“Katie Vie is both feisty and deeply tender. I have found her sincerity and honesty refreshing. She has an incredible ability to hold the seat of teacher. She embodies the 7 archetypes in her anointing oil collection in a way that gives a person permission to fully bloom into who they came to earth to become. I see Katie Vie as a healer, wise woman, guide, sister, and deeply inspiring being from another dimension. I am so grateful for the circles I have sat with her in and continue to simmer in the teachings she has generously shared with me. I am grateful to know this gatekeeper of wisdom and knowing”. –Maggie O.
