O my body! I dare not desert the likes of you in other men and women, nor the likes of the parts of you, I believe the likes of you are to stand or fall with the likes of the soul, (and that they are the soul,) I believe the likes of you shall stand or fall with my poems, and that they are my poems, … Womanhood, and all that is a woman, and the man that comes from woman, The womb, the teats, nipples, breast-milk, tears, laughter, weeping, love-looks, love-perturbations and risings, The voice, articulation, language, whispering, shouting aloud, Food, drink, pulse, digestion, sweat, sleep, walking, swimming, Poise on the hips, leaping, reclining, embracing, arm-curving and tightening, The continual changes of the flex of the mouth, and around the eyes, The skin, the sunburnt shade, freckles, hair, The curious sympathy one feels when feeling with the hand the naked meat of the body, The circling rivers the breath, and breathing it in and out, The beauty of the waist, and thence of the hips, and thence downward toward the knees, The thin red jellies within you or within me, the bones and the marrow in the bones, The exquisite realization of health; O I say these are not the parts and poems of the body only, but of the soul, O I say now these are the soul! ▽ Walt Whitman, I Sing the Body Electric ▽ Manifesting exquisite feminine health and success at #ShaktiSchool with the #ShaktiPosse. trainings and community ➸ link in profile
You are intimately connected to everything: the abiding spirit of Ayurveda shows us that there is an underlying natural order that holds and sustains all of us. We are made up of this infinite, all-pervading intelligence. When you make the commitment to living in greater harmony within yourself, you augment the harmony for everyone and everything. You become a walking “answered prayer.” In this way, all of daily life becomes an expression of the fact that life is sacred. 🕸 Start your journey, #LinkinBio You will leave with a tool-kit of ancient wisdom techniques that will help you tap into limitlessness. You will: ➸Work with getting rid of the inertia that is keeping you stuck. ➸Explore and activate the hidden parts of the body that can super-charge manifestation creation and expansion. ➸Chill out and squeeze out any 2017 residue that needs TO GO ➸Plant seeds for spring 💐
As a teacher, there are things that I get asked repeatedly. So I am preparing a little series where I answer your most pressing and often very similar questions. Best way to get your question noted is to comment here or DM me. Keep your Qs to one or two sentences. Then stayed tuned for lots more Katie and Shakti School goodies coming your way. I am preparing a big new project for this year that I’m eager to share with you all ⚡️🦄🧜🏻♀️
Let’s get Clear. Clarity around our intentions, our journey (Dharma), and goals (Sankalpa). Clear about our body: moving winter stagnation, self-care. This isn’t about gaining new knowledge. This is about getting a clear transmission from our bodies, from nature’s wisdom. It’s about remembering the ancient wisdom we woman forgot along the way. My Sankalpa is to be a translator of Ayurveda and a leader of women. ⁛ Are you new here? Introduce yourself 👇🏻 There is a link to download a free Manifestation guide, Yoga & Meditations in my profile. Follow and share your experience with this material with the hashtag #LineageofLove.
Successful launch of our first annual Ayurveda Lifestyle Coach Certification program. Feeling the love, the web of connection and the bonds of Inner Trust, Authentic Voices, Spiritual Sovereignty and Radical Responsibility. ☀️🌛☀️🌛
Your DNA is ancient and holds within its spiral mystery a story of water, clay and salt. Your lineage is old and calling out to you ::: a circle of belonging to nature. Nature shows us the way. Shakti School launches its first program today and the energy of Mother Earth and Nature’s Laws are palpable to the eyes and ears. It has me dreaming of Celtic poems and stone circles. May you be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul and spiraling beauty of nature. He Ma! 🦌 “I arise today through the strength of heaven Light of sun, radiance of moon Splendor of fire, speed of lightning Swiftness of wind, depth of the sea Stability of earth, firmness of rock” The Deer’s Cry ⁛ If you want to learn from this lineage of love and feminine form medicine, head over to the link in my bio to sign up to receive free yoga, meditation and ayurvedic guidance to support the manifestation of your heart's deepest longing. ⁛ Just like the ancient yoginis and Ayurveda goddesses, the Celtics had a reverence for nature. Celtic song, from the Scottish Highlands to Appalachia, awakens the mystic.
There is a path of bliss ::: know thyself. And you will know the hearts of others too. God(dess) is not finished with you yet. ⚡️

I’ve started writing my second book. It’s a completely different animal from the first. It’s personal. Memory meeting tender memory. And I have this picture of these ladies, and my time in Russia, in my writing space. These women, and so many other women all over this planet, are my inspiration to keep writing. And to keep expressing something more real, more truthful and more tender. I am inspired and fueled by their tender inner lights. By their yearning to learn and change. I dedicate this book, as of yet in it’s most incubating of forms, to the kindness I have received from women this world over. Good Night Sweet Hearts 🕊🌙🕊
