Kath is a mama, a writer and a Rebirthing breathworker.
Kath is first and foremost a mum of a 10-year-old boy. They are currently living and unschooling in Somerset, UK, along with their dog, Bruno. She is so grateful for the love, learning and growing, fun and adventure they bring.
The path of motherhood has been by far the steepest learning curve and deepest healing journey. It has allowed her a colourful understanding of the wonders, opportunities and trials and traumas of growing up and parenting in the world of today. It has given her a profound recognition that our children are not only the future but also true blessings and gifts in the present. It has brought her forever closer to the person she was meant to be in the world.
Kath has always had a pen and paper in hand, and had to document everything in writing and photos, as well as using these arts to process life, for self-expression, for creative writing, and compiling information for ease of sharing ideas and knowledge.
She is the administrator at AIR School of Breathwork and is training as a Rebirther with them. She joined this beautiful and supportive community 5 years ago as part of her own healing journey, and discovered the breath to be a trusted ally through very challenging times of depression and anxiety, and into finding her voice - her creativity and sharing it - once more.
She loves doing one on one Rebirthing sessions with adults and young people, and has had the honour and blessings of assisting in group breathwork sessions and programmes at festivals and online with her sister, Kerry and aunt Lynn.
She also co-founded and is part of the team at Breathe, a Festival of Life, a beautiful, annual gathering in the UK, that invites breathwork practitioners of all styles and breathers of all levels to share the experience and benefits of breathwork.
Kath's passion and interest in using the Healing Arts and the Arts for personal transformation and social change, and to assist children and young people in their growth and development, has seen her collaborating in many projects over the years for children, young people and families in the UK, Europe and also India. This includes festival production, community arts and education project management, and facilitating in young people's projects. She had the great privilege of working with many organisations, groups, schools, venues, festivals and artists.
Kath wants to use her skills, talents and experience, and to collaborate with others, to contribute to the well-being of people and our Mother Earth. She wants to help inspire others, as she has been inspired, to Breathe Our Word - to be who we are, just as we are, every step of the way and to be who we were meant to be in a world that needs us to be, each and every one of us.
In the words of Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi:
“God picks up the reed-flute world and blows.
Each note is a need coming through one of us,
a passion, a longing pain.
Remember the lips
where the wind-breath originated,
and let your note be clear.
Don't try to end it.
Be your note.
I’ll show you how it’s enough”
