“Indigenous” refers not only to cultures and peoples, but also a way of being. The indigenous way is the embodied ancient memory of how to be fully human, and it’s encoded in our souls, no matter who our ancestors are. As humans, we’ve got everything we need, inside of us and surrounding us, to evolve into the multi-dimensional beings we were born to be. As we find ourselves on the threshold of a “new age” (the Golden Age of Humanity, the Age of Aquarius, the Fifth Sun, etc.), we are invited to shore up the fabric of our indigenous souls for the journey ahead of us. How shall we begin? This presentation offers some threads and patterns that we can use to weave ourselves into multi-dimensionality.

In recent years, Cathie has been learning and practicing the skills of spiritually based emotional clearing; inner work with polarity integration (Yin/Yang); examining beliefs that either inhibit or promote self-evolution and multi-dimensional consciousness; and understanding and honoring relationships with self (levels of consciousness) and with others (soul contracts).
