“Katie’s Mysticism classes were less like classes than consecrated gatherings. Her approach to imparting her vast knowledge of plant morphology and blending within an atmosphere invoking ancient symbolism of the natural world and inviting us to trust a deep, personal knowing feels like Asheville’s best-kept secret. ” Selinde L.
Awaken the Mystic is a 3-day class series. You’ll gather one day per week for 3 consecutive weeks to allow the perfect amount of time for integration without losing potency. Classes are from 10 am – 3 pm, and includes an hour for lunch. Classes will be at the river island apothecary woodland studio in east Asheville, NC.
Awaken the Mystic is offered 3 times during late summer and autumn to 3 separate “Pods”. Each group is a “pod” (whales swim in pods). All participants are invited to a special winter solstice gathering so that the pods can meet and celebrate together.

winter solstice gathering
Near the winter solstice, all 3 Awaken the Mystic “Pods” are invited to 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 from 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.
