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

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.

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, Mythos Journey eCourse, attending my beloved Goddess Retreats, as well as the individual depth coaching and customized professional mentoring. JourneyPath Institute offers eCourses 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.
