“I worked with Katie to design an Archetype Journey for my friends in the spring. I was attending massage school while I was participating in Awaken the Mystic with her. I really loved the combination that both experiences were bringing to my life, and wanted to share her magic with the women I was growing close to.
I think sometimes we think that spiritual work has to be hard and painful. The gift of the Archetype oils is that they remind us that this process can be really quite enjoyable and luxuriously sensory. For me, embracing this reality means honoring the often lost feminine in spiritual practice.
The experience of being in the Archetype Journey with my friends was incredibly playful and held a significant potency—everyone walked away from the experience transformed, renewed, grateful, and radiant.

“Katie’s work is vitally important in the world, and what she has created in her Archetype Journey is profound. Going into the event, I had not met Katie and did not know what to expect, other than that there was going to be a journey into sacred feminine archetypes using her blends of oils.
The journey is actually one of intuition and primal knowing, and Katie is the perfect guide to remind you to stop seeking answers with your cognitive knowing, and women, use these more suppressed and supportive parts of our emotional/primal brain. When we followed the journey, we found that our senses communicated to us the archetypes that we both resonated with and most deeply needed.
As a group of women very connected to personal process and divine knowing, this journey proved empowering, revealing, affirming, and surprising in all the right ways, to every woman in our circle. Katie is offering something deeply profound. I have discovered that her oils are indeed medicine to the sacred unfolding and remembering of the feminine divine.”

“Thank you so much for facilitating my gorgeous birthday celebration! It was an honor and pleasure to gather in ceremony with my tribe. We are still reaping the benefits from that circle. The archetype oils have been powerfully healing for me, in ways that I never expected or even thought possible.
Thank you for being who you are in the world and for doing your work. You are a blessing, and I’m so grateful that you have followed your soul to be the steward of this incredible medicine. I’m also very grateful to have access to these amazing tools.”

“Katie Vie has not only created amazing products, but has developed meaningful ways to share them with the community. I have attended and hosted Archetype Journeys featuring River Island Apothecary’s anointing oils and thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. Katie is an expert facilitator in addition to having created her own line of Feminine Archetypes with matching anointing oils. If you are looking for a fun reason to get together with your tribe of women this is it. It is an exciting sensory experience that can promote both introspection and bonding among friends and strangers alike! I can’t recommend attending and hosting a gathering enough and have not let myself run out of oils since I was introduced to them. Thanks Katie for the beautiful work you do!”

“Katie Vie is one of those people who has the unique balance of magical whimsy and grounded authenticity. When you work with Katie, you know that she loves what she does and you can experience that love in her products, her massage and any time she creates sacred space. I always enjoy finding new ways to circle with my friends and hosting Katie at my house for an Archetype Journey was absolutely magical! Hosting Katie and her products isn’t just another product party to invite your friends to. It is a carefully crafted, sacred space that she holds with deep intention and love. It was such an honor to have her in my home and to have my friends and I get to experience what she offers. There was laughter, tears, inspiration and community. I have done several archetype experiences with Katie, and each time I discover something new, while also relaxing into the familiar magic that Katie creates wherever she goes.”

“I had the sincere pleasure of hosting Katie and her Archetype Journey in my home. She created a sense of shared community through an interactive experience that is carefully crafted through thoughtful preparation and yet wonderfully fluid to evolve as needed depending on the energy of the group. Her knowledge of aromatherapy is extensive, and when partnered with her powerful intuitive sense, it brings forth a beautiful gathering that is interwoven with intention and care. This is not simply an opportunity to bring people together but also a chance to learn something deeply meaningful about ourselves.”

“It was wonderful to connect with you. The experience of all of your oils was amazing!!!
I have to say the Mermaid Archetype with the Knife is very fitting tome at this moment. The words you shared really rang true for me. I have been struggling with anxiety lately, an old pattern that is resurfacing for me to move through… A few years ago, the anxiety was almost debilitating. I have been able to manage it pretty well until recently. I just have to find what it is to keep me feeling safe as I dive in deeper… I was blown away by the session with you and how the Universe provides just what we need when we need it. I will be taking the Mermaid anointing oil with me on my trip, to remind me of feeling safe and at home… And to not be afraid of the depths because “a Mermaid can’t drown”

“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.”
