“Deb Cook’s Yoga Nidra is a balm for the soul. When I feel stressed, I just hear Deb’s voice reminding me to go deep, find peace, and bring it off the mat and into my life. The effects are long lasting, and each session is a slightly different flavor of pure bliss. Cannot recommend this experience highly enough.”

“I felt the soul’s ‘tap on my shoulder’ when I had the urge to use writing to process some of my family’s patterns and history. I needed an experienced guide to gently help me move into and through my exploration. Catharine was the right person. Gentle, intuitive and inquiring, she listens well and I trust her to know how to use writing to discover and uncover hidden treasures of the heart.”
