• Kate Hawkes is an awesome facilitator. She provides a safe environment to self explore using her creativity and compassion. I was able to write about the trauma I had experienced and process it in a new way. The assignments allow for the subconscious to be expressed using metaphors. I wasn’t even aware I was writing my own story until Kate helped me look at the progression of what I had written. Thank you Kate for the tools and encouragement to continue to heal and move forward on my path. Heidi Lobstein (MSN, RN , MST survivor)

• Kate has a way of helping her participants go deep into our personal power/magic in a safe setting. I look forward to my next workshop with her!
