More About Our Founder
A seasoned breathwork practitioner, Kathleen embarked on her transformative journey in the early 1980s. Initially drawn to methods emphasizing hyperventilation and intense emotional catharsis, her path eventually led her to the subtle and profound practice of breath meditation inspired by her over 20 years of study and practice in bioenergy with Mietek Wirkus. Her approach to breathwork transcends conventional methods, leaning towards a more yin practice rooted in Eastern philosophies. Restorative Breathwork is an exquisite dance between following the breath without influencing it and modifying the breath in a manner that is "in the flow" with its natural rhythms. This rhythmic dance of the breath sequentially moves us inward into deep inner stillness, reconnecting us to the deepest part of ourselves.
As Kathleen describes it, Restorative Breathwork is a sophisticated breath meditation system with both physical and esoteric components. It offers a building-block approach that begins with restoring balance to the nervous system and increasing vagal tone. From here, breath practices focus on chakra purification to prepare the way for opening a gateway to the spiritual dimensions of the Self. Her unique approach cultivates a quality of inner stillness that fosters profound healing, renewal, and inner illumination. Restorative Breathwork is a pivotal tool in the spiritual awakening journey, firmly anchored in the esoteric philosophies of the Eastern science of breath.
Since 1993, Kathleen has been at the forefront of breathwork facilitator trainings, breath immersions, and meditation retreats. Her rich and successful private practice has touched the lives of thousands of clients, reflecting her profound understanding of the relationship between breath, energy, and consciousness. Throughout her esteemed career, Kathleen has conducted programs all over the United States, including at renowned institutions like Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. (Association for Research and Enlightenment) and the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine Conference. Her participation in the Elizabeth Targ Research Project, exploring the influence of Bioenergy distant healing on AIDS patients at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, highlights her commitment to the practical applications of subtle energy healing.
