About Katie

Katie Ni Mhathuna is a shamanic teacher and healer working in Ireland and internationally.



In the experience of guiding someone to release heaviness or to gather strength, I often notice that clients will see in me what it is they are soon become to themselves.
The role I am here to embody is to be both a clearer mirror, for the wounds and the gifts that already reside within each client and also the holder, an anchor a touchstone for those who are in the depths of their own process. Even at time I will embody the light they are reaching for, but always what people are receiving through me is themselves.

In becoming a mirror I have had lifelong experience of altered states of consciousness. My initiation started with a fever at five years old wherein I re-encountered the spirit world with relative lucidity. Many experiences like this have stayed with me throughout my life and have guided me through healing crises and over thresholds of initiation into uncharted territories of my own psyche and that of the collective.

I studied my craft with different teachers all over the waking world and the medicine realms. I graduated from a degree in social sciences with a first class honours having completed a dissertation on the Power of Dance as Liberation. I know and have seen that people in cathartic co-creation are the most powerful collective force for beauty and truth on the planet at the moment. I hold a space to cultivate these experiences for others to engage with.

Being in Irish society and a natural outsider I struggled with my awareness and fought my intuition for many years. After reconciling with these aspects of myself I found my uncomfortable sensitivity to be a great gift of subtle awareness. I experienced an extreme kundalini awakening and I am blessed to have experienced the most profound part of this journey in the accepting embrace of the Himalaya. My experiences would be described as deep psychosis in Ireland. Evolving through those experiences without human intervention beyond that of friends and teachers was a deeply empowering initiation. And so, I began work in earnest as a healer and guide in India in 2016.

I firmly believe that no one is here to be ‘fixed’ or ‘solved’ and that comes through in my work. There are no mistakes, only lessons to further you on your road toward your highest potential. There are no absolutes, every moment, every situation is different.

We are all here with personal dreamings to fulfill. Each individual is given an innate spark of power for them to tend as their birthright. I am here for those who wish to rekindle this spark whether it be the kindling of their shadow they need to cultivate or the heat of their light. Together we illuminate how truly stunning it really is to be alive.

I give huge gratitude and credit to my teacher Demian Hayes of


for being instrumental in grounding me on my path.

I give gratitude to the earth, my family, my ancestors and all the, guides, guardians, friends, lovers, animals, plants and minerals, the four winds and the elementals as my greatest teachers.

The sacredness of life is within every being and every experience. Within each is a lesson and a blessing.

In love and in kindness,
