News at the Sanctuary

Hi and welcome to our latest newsletter. 

Today I realised that the last newsletter I wrote was back in March, it is amazing how quickly this year is rushing by and into June already. 

The last few months have been focused on the Accredited Trainings both in Perth and Sydney. What I have noticed more and more of when teaching these Modules lately is all the  students who come together to learn display nothing but respect, love, understanding and harmlessness towards one another that unifies the group in light.  These are the major key ingredients to walking an authentic spiritual Path.

This is such a safe and professional environment to learn in with many reflections and aha moments. You will definitely be challenged but in a good way that pushes you out of your comfort zone to bring growth and change. This training concentrates more on spiritual growth through knowledge of the mind and love through the heart, not the overstimulation of emotions and glamour.

Many thanks to all the students who have attended these so far, to Bella for and Beth for assisting me and the groups, to Kale for preparing our meals and last but not least the volunteers who put their hands up to assist the Practitioners in training to further their learning. I love to teach ‘hands on’ training because it really is the only way to learn about the different aspects of personalities, bodies, and the witness of Self.

In 2020 these trainings will change and I will be teaching less of them due to a new project coming up in Greece.  I am also leaving for Japan in November for a few months study so if anyone is interested the last dates for these trainings are below.

Much love,

Catherine xox

Reiki was my first love and it was a journey that changed my life dramatically bringing so much healing and accelerated growth through awareness of consciousness, so much so that it catapulted my career as a spiritual teacher.  I have been blessed to have studied with the International House of Reiki in Sydney and the incredible Professor Mari Hall, founder of the International Association of Reiki.

Reiki is beautiful, gentle and effective healing modality.  The first degree of traditional Japanese Reiki is called ‘Shoden’ which means ‘new beginnings’ so if you are interested in this training and your soul is calling you please click on the link below.  We only have a few places left.

What is Tantra?

Tantra is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. It means to “weave” weaving the form (the body) with higher consciousness (the soul). The practice of Tantra is duality to unity which lifts humanity one step up from the animal kingdom, the basic primal desire nature and into the heart of the Divine.

Tantra is a science of evolution, unlocking and decoding life’s many mysteries and discovering the mystery of self, self-realization, self-knowledge and self-love. When self-love is awakened, we recognize this as unconditional love in others, our community, humanity and the soul.

The benefits of learning Tantra

  • Eastern Tantra is a pathway to ‘know thyself’ as both a form of matter (body) and as a soul (higher self).
  • Tantra celebrates and honours the body, pleasures and Indriyas (senses).
  • Tantra is a gateway to higher consciousness that lifts the lower primal sex expression into the sacredness of the divine.
  • Tantra is a journey of duality to Unity, liberation from the human kingdom and a passageway into the Divine.
  • Tantra moves us out of involution and into the heart of evolution so that we keep growing.
  • Tantra is amazing, incredible, inspirational and life changing!
  • Tantra is a gift of sacred love

Men’s Workshop – Do you know what women really want?

Due to so many inquiries of late we have decided to teach this workshop one last time for 2019.  This is a fantastic day for men to not only learn ‘what women really want’ spiritually, physically and emotionally but also to ponder on what is true masculine energy and how this energy holds space for yourself and your partner.   If you are interested please click on the link below, Rebekah and I would love to see you there.
