About the Institute

Vision, Programs + Founder

JourneyPath® Institute is dedicated to integrative depth work, transformative process and art as process to support healing, wholeness and expansion.

The Insitute offers a space to explore depth work, journey work, distinctive experiential and creative programs.

Depth work is a multi-faceted approach to harnessing the power of inner knowing, and wisdom, found in the language of symbol, myth, metaphor and story, that leads to deeper healing and wholeness.

We offer a Jungian approach to Depth Work, utilizing archetypal and journey techniques we will delve deeply into Intuitive Ways of Knowing, Narrative Process, Myth, Story, Expressive Art, coaching concepts and tools to develop ones own process and expand your original voice when working with self, individuals and groups.

A strong emphasis on blended and experiential learning, the program is offered with easy access module learning. Easy to use global university platform. All programs have valuable supportive materials, video, audio and written manual, interactive share space, with group calls and individual coaching support.

Extended educational opportunities for general interest, facilitator and advanced coach training are intended to build on your wisdom and advance your experience in the fields of arts-based healing, applied coaching tools, wellness practice, embodied experience, art as ritual and transformative process.

The concept of diving deep into the unknown, seeking the wisdom in the psyche, exploring the shadow and light of one's life, is grounded in the theories and teachings of Carl Jung.

Depth work is influenced by many fields of learning that include psychology, anthropology, neurology and philosophy, it is influenced by consciousness and embraces both intentional and intuitive ways of learning that include spiritual, archetypal, transpersonal, creative, esoteric and indigenous ways of knowing.

Within JourneyPath® we explore our stories through image, symbol and story - harnessing the idea that we are all artists of life. This invites us to exploring art-making and mark-making, for any and all of us, as an energetic act that amplifies awareness. This is a powerful way to feel into and develop deeper connections. If you are energized by an image and recognize the potency in the words offered here, explore our offerings to experience your own depth.

"Be wild; that is how to clear the river. The river does not flow in polluted, we manage that. The river does not dry up, we block it. If we want to allow it its freedom, we have to allow our ideational lives to be let loose, to stream, letting anything come, initially censoring nothing. That is the creative life.

About the Founder

Cat Caracelo M.A. is the founder of JourneyPath Institute; a master depth coach, educator, artist and “guidess” working for over 15 years with individuals and groups, locally and internationally.

Cat is passionate about the potentiality of experiential process and artmaking as a path to guide ones life. She is an author, creator and guide who has led thousands of people through mythos journey and depth work.

Dedicated to depth work, psycho-spiritual awareness and active growth, Cat guides experiential learning that fosters a connection to art as a language of the soul, intuitive knowing and the power of the mythic journey.

With a deep commitment to her own art as healing, depth work has been a calling.

Her own life experience led her to shadow work, shamanic practice and transformative art, understanding the many ways art-making becomes a conduit to healing and wholeness. It was this connection and her own journey in developing a deep connection to mythic awareness, ancestral healing and sacred place that the work of narrative process and conscious life design became a unique way to engage personal growth and professional expansion using experiential process that is now offered in every aspect of the offering held within the Institute.

Cat has discovered an innovative approach to depth coaching, weaving in personal myth, visual narrative and integrative creative process to support groups and individual clients. The advanced path classes, trainings and certification offer powerful personal resource and professional support.

A Message from Cat

"I have spent many years recognizing and working with the paradoxes, complexities and shadow material of my own life.

I continue to explore my life stories and unravel experiences through the multifaceted lens of the psyche and the inner landscape. This is the most potent and powerful approach to living a creative, full and balanced life, that I have ever experienced.

Incorporating intuitive creativity, symbolic language and coaching tools, I took my own experiences and designed a unique and dynamic Depth Coaching process that inspires wellness, wholeness and choice.

Designing life with conscious attention and creative inspiration is always a personal, dynamic and an ever-changing journey, for us all. This translates into my work with thousands of women who are committed to creating positive change their lives through Depth Coaching Certification, Mythos Journey eCourses, Facilitator Trainings or attending my beloved Goddess Retreats, as well as the individual depth coaching and customized professional mentoring.

JourneyPath Institute offers eCourses, process and programs that will meet the needs of unique, creative and dynamic women who are committed to enhance and experience life, diving deep, healing deeper and expanding out with newfound strength, awareness and vision."
