Who is Kate? 70’s Flower Child, Gas Station Attendant, Veterinarian’s Assistant, Professional Landscaper, Retail Store Clerk and Manager, Navy Petty Officer, Government Contractor, DoD Civilian, Organization Development Consultant, Full-time Care Giver, Former Drug Addict, Peace Corps Volunteer, single/married/divorced/ married/single, Vegan, Pacifist, Liberal, Realistic-Idealist, Idealistic-Realist, Tree Hugger, Reiki Practitioner, Sound Massage Practitioner, Meditator, Meditation and Dharma Teacher, Facilitator, and Gadabout.
In 2014 I retired from Federal Government and moved to the beautiful town of Asheville, NC where I established my business, Spa de la Paz. I offer Sound Massage, Tibetan Bowl Meditation & Concerts, Reiki, and Vipassana (Insight Meditation). I volunteer with hospice and live with my African Village Dog Paz, and my little Buddha Baby cat.
I believe that authenticity comes from allowing ourselves to be vulnerable with one another. In my life I’ve discovered that when I’m vulnerable and unafraid to be who I really am, I find that I’m really no different from anyone else. We all have stuff – just different stuff – and we all just want to be happy. Drawing on over 25 years of meditation practice, studies, and life lessons from gadding about, I help others who are on their path – any path – to finding that happiness through deep relaxation techniques and mindfulness. You will find me at Asheville Insight Meditation and various venues around Asheville.
