👋I’ve never done a post introducing myself before, so I thought I’d say a brief hello!
🙏I’m Kathryn, a 29 year old artist and teacher living in Rhode Island. I grew up in southern Connecticut, moved to Boulder, Colorado when I was 18 and lived there for ten years. Since the age of 17, I’ve been dedicated to studying non-duality and engaging in deep inner work. While in Colorado I went to Naropa University, a Buddhist school where I studied painting and permaculture. I started studying kriya yoga, non-duality, metaphysics, and mysticism with my teacher when I was 19. I’ve been teaching kriya yoga meditation and various workshops on topics such as mindfulness, dream interpretation, intuition building, the Bhagavad Gita, finding and working with spirit guides, and self-care since 2009. I currently teach meditation every Saturday morning at 8am at @thenestri
📚I wrote and illustrated a lil book called “Here You Are”, which is a collection of original minimalist tantric paintings and straightforward non-dual writings designed to help bring you into the present moment, into your body, and into your heart. You can purchase a copy through my website. I am working on my second book now, titled “Persephone’s Path”. It will be a meditation on the journey we take when we allow ourselves to fully feel difficulties, traumas, and our shadow selves. There will be a brief introduction to the Persephone myth, my understanding of its meaning, a meditation designed to recreate the cyclical journey to the Underworld, and a section about poisonous plant allies.
🔮I am deeply in love with the symbolic language of the subconscious. I believe tarot is a beautiful tool we can use to clearly hear this subconscious language. I offer tarot readings over Skype. You can read some reviews of my readings and schedule one through my website or DM me :)
🌿I recently completed one year of a sacred plant medicine apprenticeship with @thegaiaschoolofhealinggaiaschoolofhealing where I got to meet hellebore, my initiator into the world of poisonous plants, my most sacred teachers. I have a few copies left of a mini-zine I wrote about 4 of these plants - hellebore, henbane, datura, and belladonna available. DM me to purchase one.
🌑Last year I began having dreams where I would suddenly be holding a staff, and would miraculously know how to use it as a weapon to protect myself and loved ones. I eventually found my irl staff under an oak tree with a group of crows perched in its branches. I immediately “remembered” how to use it as a tool for ceremonies in service to uncovering the Authentic Self. I have started to lead these ceremonies for friends and will soon be offering them publicly in Providence. I will share more information about these ceremonies in the coming weeks!
💎I sell high vibrational crystals and artwork through my etsy shop, Persephone Collective
✨It’s hard to summarize myself in just a few paragraphs but this feels like a good start. Nice to meet you :)
