Your Course of Study: Choose Your Own Adventure
Your Course of Study within the Kabira School of Energy may be like a Choose Your Own Adventure. Though the path is not linear, in studying energy you will find there is a natural cycling through three skill sets.
Some students work with Cat for just one short workshop or retreat. Others decide to participate in multi-week retreats and train with her for years. One of Cat’s students affectionately calls this more committed experience, “The Years of Kabira.” Regardless of whether you try just one offering, or choose to dive deeper into studying with Cat, you have options.
Most often, after Energy 101 students participate in some self-healing offerings, followed by some training in supporting others, and then back to more self-focused work before deepening their skills in working with others. Some students have chosen to do one to three self-healing focused workshops/retreats in a row, followed by learning how to support others, with lots of private healing sessions and one-on-one mentoring, throughout. Cat’s suggestion is to start with the foundations and then participate in whatever is calling to you.
Your course of study may include:
- Online Trainings via Zoom and Private Facebook Groups
- Shorter In-Person Workshops
- Week-long In-Person Courses for both new students and already seasoned students
- In-Person Trainings in hands-on and off body energy work with others
- In-Person Advanced trainings that integrate your yoga teaching and practice with subtle energy
Energy 101 is the Kabira School of Energy’s foundational online course. It is the prerequisite to all other Kabira School offerings, and is designed to help you spark, discover what your own system is, and feel how essential pleasure and joy are for keeping that spark as you travel your own soul path. The practices you’ll learn are primary. You will become intimate with your own wiring and understand what your “personal planet” is like, as Cat likes to say. You’ll also learn more of Cat’s language for the fundamentals, so that you’re on the same page as you continue your learning.
Working With Your Own Energy System
Learning to work with your own system is a natural progression from the foundations. The more skilled we are in accurately meeting ourselves, the more we heal and become able to hold space for someone else’s healing, as well. Beginning self-healing work involves working with your own subtle body, psychology, chakras, and field. We need to have our own ability to be grounded, find our center, and to understand our own projections. It’s about becoming intimate with who you really are, and begin to honor that.
These programs are offered both as women-only as well as mixed groups. No matter your level of experience, these offerings are transformative. Seasoned energy workers are welcome to join beginners. The three formats you can choose from are Workshops and Trainings, Online Self-Healing Courses, or Private Training and Healing Sessions.
Workshops and Trainings
These are in-person experiences offered all over the world. Workshops can be 1 day, a weekend or 3 days long, and trainings run 3-7 days. These offerings attract practitioners from beginner level to more advanced as they’re your space to connect to your truth. The content and how it’s presented varies according to the length of the program but they are all designed for you to go to a deeper layer within yourself. This work can also be done one-on-one in private sessions with Cat online or in person.
Online Self-Healing Courses
These are run throughout the year and are usually conducted via Zoom. Group sizes tend to range from 4-10 students to maintain a level of quality support and connection. The specific content will vary depending on the program, and can last from a week intensive to a more on-going format over a month or more.
These trainings are open to all levels and do require that you show up for all classes. You can contact us directly to see if the program that you’re interested in is right for you.
Private Training & Healing Sessions to Further Your Course of Study.
Cat offers these sessions online as well as in-person. Both formats are equally effective. They can be potent and you will have some time to “cook” and integrate them for the days afterwards.
Most Kabira School of Energy students work privately with Cat. Sessions are designed specifically for your direct needs, as well as your personal learning style, so there is an opportunity for much more depth and understanding in your own work. The specifics of what’s covered varies. This is your personalized space to learn how to work with your own energy system, heal old trauma, and empower yourself fully in your life. Depending on your needs you may focus on coaching, mentoring or healing in each session.
You’ll also deepen your skills as a practitioner, whether as a yoga teacher, healer, or therapist. All of the material offered in the Kabira School of Energy can be done through one-on-one training.
In these online or in-person retreats (aka well-balanced trainings), you will learn hands-on and/or hands-off healing work with others. We will continue to practice meeting ourselves, cycling through what we’ve learned from work in foundations and self-healing.
In the earlier phases of learning hands-on work, we discover how much our own field influences our perception and witnessing of the Other. We use practices that wake up our “super senses,” perceiving flow, health, and learning in a new way how the body resources and heals itself. We discover our personal way of perceiving, and how to ensure we are seeing clearly, so that we become trustworthy in our work. This is an invitation to step into a whole new way of being, inviting our more “feminine” perception.
In-person trainings include “Connection” and “Going Deeper.” These are designed as a sequence, in which Going Deeper is only available for students who have successfully completed Connection, first. Both are week-long trainings that immerse you in how to do hands-on healing work – working with the physical, mental, emotional, astral, and ancestral layers of the energetic body. In order to get certified in any hands-on healing work, you must attend these trainings in person.
If you are unable to attend in-person offerings, you can also train in supporting others, online. Cat teaches these skills online through private sessions as well as group course formats.
In remote or distance-healing trainings (whether 1-1 or in a group course) you learn how to do healing work from a distance. We also connect with the physical, mental, emotional, astral and ancestral layers here – just in a different format.
Supporting others is something that starts to happen automatically when we begin consciously working with ourselves. Cat teaches anyone who wants to learn skills for helping others using energy healing work, provided they are engaged in honest self-work as well. Separate from this, Cat can also support you on a path to becoming formally certified in energy healing work, if that’s a path that makes sense for you.
~A reminder about the nonlinear path~
This work is on-going. It’s not as if you can take one course and suddenly be grounded 100% for the rest of your life (that would be amazing!). The reality is that we are continually meeting deeper layers of ourselves, so that there are always new levels of ground, clarity, power, and embodiment for us to meet. That is the cool thing, and why these courses are so rich. We’ve designed them so that you can also come back again and again to meet the new material rising within you, so that you can continue to share with yourself and others from greater depths.
