Hi, I’m Catherine Maguire,
I grew up on a farm on the east coast of Ireland. My childhood nurtured in me a profound sense of connection to nature and to the rhythmical nature of the seasons and life itself. I roamed the fields and explored the beach beside my house, instilling in me a huge sense of freedom. To this day, I do not like to be confined; spiritually, physically or mentally.
This is what I offer you: A return to the natural and rhythmical nature of your being and a sense of personal freedom to be who you are, intrinsically and authentically.
I know intimately what it feels like to lose your sense of freedom. Thinking I had to conform, I went to college, became a business executive, bought a house and got married. To the outside world, I was a success. Internally I was dying.
Then, at the age of 29, everything changed.
My previously robust health failed and I was forced to take a break from the life I had created. This was the start of some really honest, raw conversations with myself. About how I was hiding and denying some of the core aspects of who I was and how ultimately I felt that being myself was not good enough, and that was why I had worked so hard to be something else.
I took time to ‘lick my wounds’. Then I immersed myself in a newfound passion to heal the parts of myself that felt damaged and broken and to rediscover and uncover my authentic self.
I travelled the world exploring tantra, shamanism and energy medicine, studying with traditional and not so traditional healers along the way.
Eventually I came full circle, returning to Ireland realising that everything I needed was right there, not in Ireland but inside me.
All the wisdom, all the healing, all the magic was available to me, right there within my being, and within my cells.
All the medicine men and women that I had spent time with had not fixed me, but had taught me how to access this wisdom and healing for myself.
I needed to remember what I knew as a child: how to live in harmony with the rhythmical nature of life, and how to live in harmony with myself, all of myself.
Three years ago along with my husband and our two dogs, I relocated to Tortorella. A small medieval hilltop village in southern Italy where living in harmony with nature and the seasons is a normal part of everyday life. In many ways, it is like the Ireland of my youth, but with more sunshine and less rain!
I love it here as I’m reminded every day how life unfolds when you live in your truth and let your divine light shine.
I offer you a rich and deep experience when you work with me, gleaned from walking the path of personal growth and spirituality for over 20 years.
I use transformational tools from shamanism, tantra and energy medicine yet as a farmer’s daughter, my approach is practical and grounded. I help you live in a harmonious relationship with yourself, the people in your life, your work and with the earth.
I truly believe that we each have the ability to access our own innate wisdom, step into our power and shine our light uniquely and authentically in the world.
