What people are saying

"Kundalini Yoga & Meditation has completely changed my life! Although I had attended many yoga classes previously, I was amazed at how calm-yet-energized I felt after my first Kundalini Yoga class. I love that we are encouraged to practice with our eyes closed in order to focus on our inner experience, and the group chanting creates an uplifting group energy that is unlike anything I've experienced elsewhere in my life. I leave every class feeling as if all my "load has been lightened" and I look forward to experiencing the next class!" ~ S.S., Minneapolis

Here's why I would recommend this workshop: Catherine does a great job teaching how important our feet are in everyday life. I learned many ways to engage my feet and ankles and have continued to do the exercises and consult the materials. I can tell a real difference in how my feet move and can see a change in my toes. I learned a lot and am much more aware of my feet. ~Sara M., Minneapolis, MN June 2019-------------------------------------The Footcare Clinic class is fabulous. Catherine's repertoire of training, healing gifts and commitment makes her an outstanding teacher. Her teaching style is clear and easy to understand and she find ways to make it enjoyable and practical. In this class one not only learns exercises to open up the energy channels via feet, but also becomes more body conscious and mindful. I thoroughly enjoyed her footcare class. EGS - MN June 2019

Disconnection From the Collective Shadow & Cellular Activation

Friday & Saturday Feb 21 & 22, 2020
Friday 1-6pm, Saturday 9:30am-5:30pm CST
$375 + $75 for the manual: $75 Deposit required by Feb 18th
Vibrant Joy Movement Studio, 23 SE 4th Street, Suite 213, Minneapolis, MN 55414

What is “Disconnection from the Collective Shadow” and “Cellular Activation”?

These two processes were developed by Maureen Higgins in 2005-2008 to assist people’s physical bodies in letting go of past difficulties and traumas so that they can be healthier and happier and live in alignment with their spirit. Catherine Siri Sat is a certified teacher of DCSCA.

Because all people on Earth are energetically connected to both the positive and the negative beliefs, patterns and experiences that have occurred on this planet, there is a collective energy matrix that holds those patterns in place. The positive beliefs, patterns and experiences are not an issue; however, the negative beliefs, patterns and experiences that we call the “collective shadow” have made it almost impossible for humans to align with their spirit and connect with love and joy. This “collective shadow” is the sum total lower vibrational energies of all the ways that humans hurt each other and thrives on isolation and victimhood rather than collaboration and mastery.

Maureen was shown that it is possible to disconnect from the Earth’s collective shadow energy matrix through a multi-step process called DISCONNECTION from the COLLECTIVE SHADOW. This disconnection process assists you to feel lighter and happier.

CELLULAR ACTIVATION is a 3-phase process that helps you to let go of the past on a deeper level and bring in your LIFE PURPOSE information so that you begin to attract more optimal experiences. It also brings in energies of your own mastery on a higher soul level to raise your vibration to a higher level. You will learn how to do this process which results in you feeling lighter, more centered and increasing your intuitive perceptions about yourself and others.

MORE INFORMATION:

The disconnection sequence is:

1.       Declaration of Intention to Disconnect From the Collective Shadow

2.      Three Part Heart Release: Releasing Expectations of Others, Releasing Self Judgment, Releasing the Personality’s Desire to Control Outcome

 

CELLULAR ACTIVATION

Once the density of the shadow energies is disconnected there is literally more capacity available in a human body to fill with love,compassion and joy. It is then possible to activate the physical body to hold these higher frequency energies at a cellular level – this is called Cellular Activation. After a person has been restructured through this cellular activation process it is much easier to work with the physical body to assist it in becoming able to hold more of the “light of the soul” and release/process stuck emotions from throughout the entire history of their soul.

 

Cellular Activation has three phases done in sequence:

1.      Restructuring the Etheric Body so the Physical Body can Hold More Light  – this activates the energy centers called“chakras”, opens our hearts to hold unconditional love and allows us to access and connect with higher wisdom so we can assist in creative solutions to healing this planet

2.      Restructuring the Aura to Attract from our Divine Self – this allows for a higher level of manifestation based on our soul’s destiny rather than our karma and connects us with abundance mindset (rather than the limitation mindset)

3.      Bringing in the Master Energies – this brings in the energies that our soul already carries and activates it on a cellular level so that it can manifest fully in our human body.

These 2 processes jumpstart the self-awareness , higher consciousness and self-mastery that leads to a healthier and happier life.

13D Master -New Paradigm Multi Dimensional Transformation

March 12, 13, 14 & 15
9am-6pm each day
$555 - includes workbook & certificate fees ($100 deposit required, non-refundable after Feb 24th)
VIbrant Joy Movement Studio, 23 SE 4th Street, Suite 213, Minneapolis, MN 55414

NPMDT PHILOSOPHY OF HEALING:

Healing is nothing more and nothing less than facilitating individuals on their path to experience freedom and wholeness according to their own free will and their Divine Plan
The experience of wholeness is realized by love without conditions and respect for all life forms in the universe, i.e. respect for all living beings on planet earth and beyond.

What is New Paradigm MDT?

The New Paradigm MDT (Multi Dimensional Transformation) system uses a powerful energy whose core essence is Love without conditions, non-judgment and freedom from fear.

In this 4-day journey you will be attuned to the continually expanding 13D energies of the Shamballa (light) frequencies to “remember who you are” and experience your own personal, true, core essence.

The energy of Shamballa connects you through your I AM presence to the collective consciousness of all the Ascended Masters who are in service to the Earth to assist you with self-healing and understanding the interconnected relationships of ALL levels of your"soul-in-body".

During our 4 days together we will focus on personal transformation and self-empowerment as we co-create in community and interact with the Lords and Ladies of Shamballa who are always ready to assist us but can only assist if we ask.

This workshop is a process of letting go of fear and resistance in order to release judgment of self and others, deepen self-love and move into freedom and mastery.

COURSE CONTENT:

Origins of New Paradigm MDT
History of Shamballa Energies
History of Mahatma Energies
13D Activations
DNA Clearings & Activations
Chakra Clearing & Balancing
Antahkarana Activations
Lightbody Activations
Sacred Geometry Activations
Grounding Practices
Ascended Master Germain

New Paradigm MDT is a continual expansion of the Reiki energies that were shown to Dr Usui over 100 years ago.

Catherine Siri Sat will share the story of how it came to be that ascended master "St." Germain, who originally showed the Reiki energies to Dr. Usui, began to share these newly expanded frequencies with John Armitage with the instructions that they be shared with the world. This is because humanity is now ready to move into a higher state of consciousness and the original Reiki symbols are limiting to the expansive nature of the planet.

For more information: https://www.new-paradigm-mdt.org/the-system/history/

What to expect each day?

Over the 4 day journey participants will practice moving into BEING the love, the freedom and the magic that we ARE.

Each day we will experience 3-4 Shamballa activations, as well as appropriate clearings and discussions to support full integration. We will also be practicing invoking the energy of creation of Source that we call the Mahatma energies to assist each person present to synthesize their intentions and actions with their soul ray aspects as a path to self-mastery. Mahatma energy is very gentle - it is the energy of love without conditions that is the true nature of all of creation.

For more information about the Mahatma energies:
http://johnarmitage.me/mahatma-activation

http://johnarmitage.me/vywamus-mahatma-energy

Because we are each a unique expression of Source, each person will process the activations at his/her own optimal frequency and pace as determined by his/her own Higher Self.

Each of the 13 activations will be followed by a hands-on partner exchange in order to integrate through the experience of both radiating and receiving the energy.

Please bring any snacks/sustenance you may need to support you. We will take a break for lunch each day with plenty of time to eat a bit and relax. You may bring your own lunch or purchase something from any of numerous neighborhood restaurants/deli’s.

Because we will be connecting as a multi-dimensional community to support each other in this adventure, my best advice is to EXPECT NOTHING – JUST BE PRESENT and OPEN YOUR HEART TO HAVING FUN and SHARING THE MAGIC OF YOU!

What if I am a Reiki Practitioner – Can I take this class?

YES! Ifyou have been practicing Reiki you are already familiar with the healing properties of those energies.

Because you are reading this, you are being called to expand beyond the Reiki energies and move more fully into multi-dimensional partnership with the ascended masters and release all things that limit your personal relationship to Source. Because the symbols used by Dr. Usui are limited to certain frequencies, during this course you will be given the choice to release your attachment to the symbols that Dr. Usui taught. If you make the choice to release those symbols your Higher Self will communicate with Master St. Germaine and the Shamballa team to assist you in opening to the ever-expanding frequencies that are not possible while being limited by symbols. Please contact Catherine Siri Sat with any questions and concerns about this process.

what people are saying

"I first saw Catherine for private sessions a number of years ago. I had been experiencing shoulder, arm, hand & hip pain from repetitive movement at work. As an Audiologist for over 30 years, I stand for long hours with my arms held up at ear level. I had been working with physical therapists and massage therapists to manage and eliminate the pain. Physical therapy and massage did significantly diminish the pain and discomfort, however, the relief was temporary. Catherine taught me how to stand and hold my arms up in postures that no longer caused discomfort. I have practiced yoga since the 90’s and she incorporated language and postures that were familiar to me, demonstrating how I could practice yoga at work utilizing postures and breath work that supported my ability to perform repetitive movements without creating discomfort and fatigue in my body. I continue to use her techniques and they continue to serve me well today. More recently I participated in Catherine’s Healthy Happy Hips & Pelvis class. Not only is Catherine an intuitive and generous teacher, she is a dedicated student who is a world traveler learning new techniques that she incorporates and shares with her students. When I create time to practice the techniques Catherine has shared, my body feels fabulous. There is a distinct difference between the days I practice and the days I don’t. I’m carving time out for practice more often as I love the way I walk, move & feel. I encourage you to do yourself a favor and treat yourself to one of Catherine’s many unique class offerings. Your body will thank you!" Dr. Jennifer Reynolds, Audiologist Woodbury, MN
