“The Mystical Year started as a commitment to personal growth and exploration and, throughout the year, turned into a gift to Self. It has given me a touchstone to which to stay connected and look forward consistently—a year’s worth of reading and journaling in The Materia Mystica, my ever-deepening and ever-present relationships with the archetypes that have burst to life inside of me, and the bond of our recurring sisterhood circle for class and ritual. In showing up for a year, all of this is now in my body and part of who I am. The gift that keeps giving is finding a way to nourish the mystical nature woven in the fiber of my being so I can be evermore my full Self.” Courtney S., mental health therapist
“Awaken The Mystic is like accepting an invitation to come home to oneself. From the moment you enter Katie’s sacred space and land to the moment you conclude with yet another soul-stirring ritual, you are touching the Divine within while growing in your wisdom. Katie is brilliant; warm, grounded, courageous. A true master.” Laura Juarez, Pure Potential
“Following Katie’s guidance through The Mystical Year has restored me to myself, and to my own rhythms that beat within the immense circular song of the natural world. Thanks, Katie, for your clarity, gentleness, humor, and generosity in sharing this wise path. A life’s gift.” — Lorrie J.
“I am so grateful to my wise self for enrolling in The Mystical Year even though it didn’t make “logical” sense at the time. In this “turn of the wheel,” in the comfortable container Katie creates, I gained deeper relationship—and a way of living in awareness and harmony–with all aspects of myself. I feel more whole and clear than I did a year ago.” – Liz G, www.TrueYouAdvantage.com
“I’ve been attending Katie’s rituals for almost one year now. I fell in love with the Queen archetype and came back to learn more! What I appreciate about all of Katie’s events is the level of care and detail that she puts into the process, both in terms of the rituals themselves and her unique oils. It is a joy to celebrate the seasonal shifts with Katie, the archetypes, and a supportive community of magical women.” Ellen P., ritual participant.
“Participating in The Mystical Year with Katie Vie helped me learn to listen to the flow of creativity that was knocking at my heart. This “course” taught me to experience different ways of listening to myself and the world around me. It helped me to forge and refine who I want to be, and most importantly got me out of the way of who I already am. The mystical education and sisterhood helped me to birth a completely new life for myself all while honoring every shift that happened along the way. These women helped me to see and feel my own bravery as I took leap after leap. 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.
“Katie holds space in a truly artful and heartfelt way. Before beginning The Mystical Year, I had ideas of what the archetypes might look like—but she guided a sweetly embodied and magical exploration into how they showed up in my life. This was incredibly transformative. It is a gift how Katie seamlessly facilitates a deeply personal and utterly visceral relationship with the archetypes, and I am so grateful to carry the timeless treasure of this experience with me, always. It has enlivened me, down to my soul.” — Sarah H
“The Mystical Year 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. I loved the friendships and community formed by our joyful commitment to this program. Katie is a glowing candle, keeping the seasonal changes and our own archetypal patterns in an illuminating, soft focus. Our own strengths had a place at the table and our patterns that needed healing were deeply nourished. I love and cherish my time within this space, my time with the women and Katie. The manual, the supplies, and the rituals were beautifully designed and executed and of incredibly high quality. Highly recommend this course.” –Sabrina L
“I can’t imagine my life without having the knowledge and tools I’ve gathered throughout The Mystical Year. Life feels so much easier when I’m in alignment with the archetypes and the wheel of the year. I also found myself spending a lot more time creating art, something that I never had time for before, but through the year I saw value in my own creations. 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. I continue to work at my job and no longer have signs of burn out. She was an answer to my prayers and did not disappoint in her leadership to provide a platform for me to listen to my own soul’s calling. 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”. At the end of The Mystical Year, I am much more fluent in my ability to channel the divine that flows through me. ” –Kari T. E.
“I enrolled in The Mystical Year when I felt I needed to gather myself back together after years of being flung out over space and time.

The material was magical and the experience transformative.” – Selinde selindelanier.com
“My commitment to The Mystical Year was satiating. 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. The accuracy of divinations turning with the wheel of the year and the new level of confidence and trust I have for myself exploded, and I found true purpose.” — Rebecca Sterling
“I have spent the past year as a student with Katie Vie, in Awaken the Mystic and The Mystical Year. It has been a completely transformative experience that has connected me to a powerful sisterhood, a vast archive of traditional knowledge, and my own deep wells of intuition and perception.
My teacher, 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. Cauldron Arts Incubator
“Before I signed up for Awaken the Mystic, I spoke with Katie to hear a bit of her own journey as a mystic. My own journey was leading me through my body and inner knowing, and I wanted someone who could inspire me in that process, not give me a set of rules to follow or a mere list of things to do. I found what I was looking for. Through Awaken the Mystic, Katie guided us deeply into our own body’s wisdom, encouraging us to dive deeper into the particular ways of knowing unique to each of us, and crafted a space that fostered a circle of sisters overflowing with laughter, tears and song. These three weeks nourished me as I embraced myself more fully, and opened the longing for more of the sisterhood and magic. The Mystical Year is most certainly beckoning me to dive deeper still!” — Kristie Ihde www.theselfwardjourney.com
“I’ve had the deepest pleasure of sitting with Katie Vie for a few different incarnations of her magic…and magic it is. In Awaken the Mystic, 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.
“Normally when embarking on a new experience, it feels to me like there is a new body of knowledge somewhere outside of myself that I am trying to tap in to, understand, and become a part of. Spending time in the experiences Katie offers is the exact opposite for me. Awaken the Mystic is like being given a treasure map to my inner landscape, an invitation to explore my inner worlds. Having Katie and her River Island Apothecary creations as guides on the inner quest creates an experience that feels safe and exhilarating to me, a feeling of coming home to myself”. –Jessica Sparks-Mussulin , Moontree Adornment

“I am a psychologist who is trained in multiple methods of healing. I sought out Katie Vie and her approach to mysticism; she provided the sacred space I was craving. I used this time to notice and nourish my unique gifts of knowing to better serve my community. Since Awaken the Mystic and The Mystical Year, I’ve incorporated more daily self-care rituals, feel more aligned with my path, and experience more magic in my daily life. I am grateful for Katie’s leadership in forming a community that met my needs so perfectly.” –Kari T.E.
“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 Awaken the Mystic 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.
Awaken the Mysticis less like a class 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.
“Katie Vie has a special way of holding space. It is both gentle and heart felt as well as deep and introspective. Before Awaken the Mystic, my thoughts were super scattered, and I had a million ways I wanted to express myself and my calling. Sitting with Katie Vie and the 3 other women in circle with the oils and archetypes nourished my soul and offered a clarity I have been longing for! Thank you, Katie Vie! We have a saying in midwifery, if a woman says after birth ‘I did it!’ then midwife did her job. Holding that liminal space so that the woman can take credit for her own internal wisdom. It feels like Katie is a midwife to the Priestess archetype within us.”–Sabrina L.
“Awaken the Mystic taught me so much about creating a safe space for people to be. Her presence and example teach subconsciously by removing ego-based conditioning, and keeping a balance between being a nurturer and showing strength. The strong community feeling built in the intimate class setting is irreplaceable. I feel connected to these women forever. I would take any class Katie Vie offers.” –Yaya D.
“In the layers of my education, the Aromatherapy Class you led at the Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine (I was in the clinical program) a few years ago was and still is the clearest and most intimate expression of essential oil medicine I’ve encountered in the context of a class. ” Graham Wesley Dwelling: Earth Medicine
“I had the lucky pleasure of attending a whole weekend retreat at Katie’s apothecary. I loved taking the time to get to know how each scent spoke to and resonated with me and using that information to craft blends to help nurture, refresh, and ground my spirit. I appreciated the ease I found in spending all that time with Katie. She’s gifted not only in her work with oils but also as an intuitive teacher and healer–not to mention divine cook! I walked away from that weekend with exactly what my spirit needed.” –Katie R.

Because of The Mystical Year I am deeply grounded with a crystalline connection to earth, space, and time.” — 2019 mystery school graduate

I have been held and loved and supported for a full year by dearest Katie, an amazing-beyond-words sacred guide and “nudger” dedicated and committed to Knowing the sacred self.

How the moon is a reminder of the archetype. How Excited I get when I know it’s a mystical day with sisters. Sharing about things that matter to us woman and how magic works in our lives. Inspiring and encouraging each other is such a big part.
It brings me to tears trying to explain how these offerings and anointing oils created and designed by Katie Vie has helped me to grow more in the last 2 years than the many decades before it.
