CATHERINE SIRI SAT LISKA IS

  • passionate about assisting people to awaken and nurture the amazing potential of their physical body as a Sacred Vessel to Embody Spirit so that they can share their unique gifts with the world while living their most creative, fulfilling and pain-free life.
  • a highly sensitive empath and intuitive with a lifetime of experience from her own healing journey that began at age 19 with an autoimmune “mystery illness” followed by decades of allergies, chronic inflammation with pain and digestive issues. She understands what it's like to feel frustrated and in pain everyday.
  • now in her mid-fifties and feeling more vibrant, healthy and joyful than ever before in her life… and she’s learned many things along the way that she’d like to share with you!
  • A SOMATIC MOVEMENT INTUITIVE

Catherine Siri Sat is gifted with the ability to see where energy disconnects
are occurring in people’s movement patterns as well as when they are at rest.

These disconnects are usually tied to a mindset, emotion or lifelong habit that is operating outside of a person's awareness.

Because these patterns are hidden below the surface, we often end up treating the symptoms rather than the underlying cause of what’s causing dis-ease. 

SHE assists Each PERSON to connect up with the wisdom of their own, unique body and spirit to become aware of these unconscious patterns.

This process of BECOMING AWARE of the POWER of your MIND and EMOTIONS while LEARNING to DEEPLY LISTEN to the MESSAGES FROM YOUR BODY is the KEY to full, lasting health and well-being.

It is a PATH of cultivating SELF-KINDNESS, 

OPENING YOUR HEART to COMPASSION for all living things and 

CHOOSING to ALIGN WITH YOUR INNER COMPASS rather than the whims of the world around you

During this process each person discovers new ways of moving, thinking and BE-ing in their BODY that allows them to reconnect with their Authentic Wholeness of body/mind/spirit, thus allowing Vibrant Joy and Health to flourish in their life.

IT IS A PATH OF TAKING LOVING ACTION.

THIS IS WHY MOVING MINDFULLY THROUGHOUT EACH MOMENT OF OUR DAY IS SO CRITICAL TO FEELING VIBRANT AND JOYFUL!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT CATHERINE:

"Thank you for sharing your exuberance and joy and wonderful knowledge with us! We are both so grateful for all of your gifts and your generosity in sharing them with us.
You’re a wonderful teacher and caring ally in developing better relationship
with our bodies!" LH and TOK, Dec 2015

CATHERINE'S HEALING STORY

In 2012, following a breast cancer diagnosis, Catherine heard a powerful inner voice that told her “it is time to take charge of your own emotional and physical health”.  This inner voice constantly reminded her that she had everything she needed within herself to create optimal health and well-being. Although she thought she ‘knew this’ from her training in  Global Somatics™, Reiki and Multidimensional Energywork, she realized she was not fully believing it for herself. Even though she was experiencing waves of fear and doubt, she decided to listen to this inner voice and take responsibility for her own health and well-being. She made the commitment to allow this inner voice to guide her. As if by magic, the perfect people to support her return to vibrant health began to show up in her life and she began to learn new tools that allowed for big shifts into feeling Whole and Healthy.

Throughout Catherine Siri Sat’s  journey she has found much support in the Natural Healing Remedies of the physical realm including Plant Medicines, Yoga, Breathwork, Energywork, Sound Healing, Authentic Movement and Being in Nature. 

BUT, she has experienced the biggest shifts to restoring her health through her Inner Realm Work of observing and training her mind while continually clearing emotional and energetic ties that were buried below her consciousness, keeping her stuck in unhealthy patterns of thinking, moving and acting.

She is now “back in her flow” enjoying each day with a new sense of self-awareness and body wisdomAND SHE IS EXCITED TO SHARE WHAT SHE HAS DISCOVERED WITH YOU!

"MY SACRED VESSEL"
by CATHERINE SIRI SAT:

Elusive support -
I have searched outside myself
for what lies within.
My Sacred Vessel -
A Universe in each cell
Pulsating with Life!
Calmness. Peace. Power.
Sanctuary within me,
Reverence for All.
Body - flesh and bone.
Spirit resides everywhere,
Finally, I'm home.
I breathe and create -
a work of art in progress,
Spirit in body
These mental constructs
shape my life, keeping me stuck.
I long to be free.
Letting go of fear -
in others eyes I see me.
Can I love myself?
Wonder and Delight  -
magical happenings Now.
Each moment precious.
Beyond time and space
my body communicates.
It's time to listen.
Embodied Living -
Creativity Flowing,
Radiating Joy!
Each breath that I take-
Flowing energy of life.
I Embody Source
