About Me: Catarina Geeting
Stress Reduction Teacher"
"Zen Mindful Living certified Qualified MBSR teacher, holistic practitioner."
Hello, I'm Kate! I have spent most of my life in Asia immersed in the culture of Buddhism.
I was introduced to meditation practices from a very early age but never completely invested myself in its potential.
Eight years ago, my son fell very ill and we nearly lost him several times while dealing with a broken marriage. Thankfully he is still with us and still fighting. It has been a long hard journey of recovery for the whole family, and the beginning of my own personal journey of self-discovery.
After another long day of arguing with the insurance company, homeschooling my son, and trying to find two minutes of peace, I realized that I could not breathe and felt so much fear and anxiety inside my chest! I had so many alerts from my body leading up to it, that I didn’t listen to. Some I was aware of, others I was not. I was exhausted, I had constant neck, head, and shoulder pain, and I was averaging two hours of sleep per night. I had all of the signs telling me to stop, but only finally did when my body forced me to. I realized that I wouldn't be good to anyone else around me unless I, myself, felt good. That’s when I discovered MBSR and decided to take a course. From there I attended teacher training courses with the Mindful Academy of Solterreno, not realizing it would be the beginning of a new life!
From these beginnings, I continued to study and now I am sharing the benefits of Mindfulness with others as an MBSR teacher. Mindfulness saved me. I feel that from my very own personal experience I know how life-changing it can be to anyone that will embark on the MBSR Journey. Mindfulness taught me how to love myself, my soul, my essence, and taught me that I could not help anyone around me until I started with my self and my own family.
I learned to no longer judge myself, to establish boundaries and to truly see and listen. I was able to process my thoughts, emotions, sensations and label them. I found myself.
My practice has expanded from MBSR individual, group and corporate sessions to incorporate my unique blend of Mindfulness, Reiki Mastery, crystal healing, Yogalates, Tai Chi, and mind, body, and energy awakening. I have learned so much about the importance of dealing with thoughts, emotions, and sensations and not ignoring stress signs in my body. I learned how to handle stressful situations and communications and how to help others through what I’ve been through. Whether someone is struggling with relationships on a personal or professional level, self-trust, achieving dreams, sickness, chronic pain, emotional pain, dealing with stress, career, leadership, dreams, and aspirations, Zen Mindful Living will be life-changing and affirming.
