Katie Ní Mhathúna
My name is Katie,
I am an indigenous healer, witch and shaman from the Island of Ireland.
I am from an ancestral lineage of magic people; many of whom have suffered greatly in recent generations. In these recent years of my life I have been reclaiming these gifts and helping others reclaim them, outside the sense of ‘normal’ that can often cage us.
As an indigenous woman I consider the work that comes through me to be a form of activism around the roles, rights and responsbilities that come with being of the earth and remembering how to be human and walk in beauty and harmony on the earth.
I am taught by direct contact with nature and spirits, my first lucid encounters started at 5 years old during initiatory sickness and I have had many since. I have been fortunate enough to have encountered different human teachers at very important moments also.
My work is formed by a collective sense of homecoming, back to our bodies, back to our souls, back to the land and back to our human, animal, plant and spirit community. All beings on this planet with a body are indigenous in their genetic memory. We choose whether to live by that wisdom as we walk the songlines of our lives. When we do we create thriving, in our bodies, in our families in our communities, our cultures and our homelands. I believe that once we live connected to our resposnbilities to the earth and one another in a non-forceful way we can gradually reclaim our indigenous memory.
I am so in love with the world and I delight in the offerings and teachings that move through me. It’s so good to be able to know, at least to some degree, my role in this wild ecology during this turn of the wheel.

In love and in kindness,
I´ve spent most of my life as an artist or performer in music and theatre. Needless to say at the age of 11 I didn’t have a conscious awareness of the metaphysical power of art or performance. The Greeks did invent theatre to communicate with the gods afterall, nobody tells the kids in drama class that one though.
I was never keen on the idea of a ‘normal’ life but my perception truly shifted through the confluence of many forms of consciousness at 19. Conscious hiphop, psychic awakening and meditation were in this meeting of many streams of thought and idea, that lead to a deep period of awareness that felt close to madness and seemed like it to those around me.
After being in the more standard routes of ‘recovery’ I chose to integrate my experience. In choosing to heal myself, rather than be tied to a service; I turned to acupuncture, learned Scaner therapy and qualified in yoga and began teaching. All the while I kept my close relationship with music by offering Kirtan.
Through acupuncture and yoga I really began to understand the human body and how the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of all beings are completely interconnected.
Since then I have shifted more to the animist shamanic path. I have been learning in the field of Kareklé, assisting at workshops and supporting sessions for 2 years.
I am excited to weave my knowledge into one to one healing spaces bespoke to the people who wish to connect with me.
KAREKLÉ ETHOS AND RESONANCE
Kareklé teaches in the tradition of a mystery school, in that what is transmitted is ‘esoteric in nature’. Therefore the mystery school only teaches techniques for one to find their own true nature, in their own unique way.
Cara Cléibh means ‘Bosom Friend’ as gaeilge, the Irish language.
At the inception of this school I found Chariklo, wife of Chiron who is the medicine woman and is also heavenly body in the form of an asteroid. As in the alchemical maxim of ‘As Above So Below’ Chariklo is the celestial messenger of this earthly temple.
‘Kareklé’ is a name in the resonance of the she-shamyn (sí-fhíos-mhúin), female shaman or medicine woman.
During the 60’s and 70’s ‘Gaia Consciousness’ was coined as a term for the Anima Mundi, or World Soul.
Gaia was the Earth as Mother, abudant, benevolant, understanding and reciprocal, this was the medicine of her archetype.
As the Great Wheel turns, the earth’s soul has responded and adapted to the consciousness that is dominant today.
The Earth as Medicine has come forward during this convulsive time, to hold space for those who wish to truly live here with her.
That is the resonance of Kareklé.
It is a Temple Haven for those who wish to live in the Earth’s true dreaming, and wish to heal, dream, breathe, live, create, dance, make, love and unravel all that ties us to that which harms through the age we are in, alongside all other beings seen and unseen.
Kareklé is the Temple of the Teaching Wise Woman Healer, as such healers and space-holders here are held to account of her energy. In essence, she as the earth and her consciousness are dreaming her body through us and we are working for her, in our own ways, each informed by this incarnation, our own pasts, ancestors, guides and direct relationship with earth and spirit.
All who work with the resonance of the temple have had other teachers and all belong comfortably connected to the web of wonder that is life.
All Paths Are Sacred And All Lead Home.
