Your Color Code

Many of us tend to undervalue ourselves. To make unfavourable comparisons with others in the room / our lives / the media. If only we were smarter, older, younger, more creative, more numerate, more articulate… sound familiar?

So the idea of discovering your Color Code is to have a visual reminder of who you are and why you are uniquely valuable. Your job isn’t to be someone else, it’s to be you.

I will do a 2 hour interview (in person or via zoom) and then use the information I gather from that, along with energy work that I can do remotely with your permission (no action required from you), to identify the 3 colors that represent your greatest strengths – and what the combination means.

In the report you receive I will give you examples of the three colors as well as RGB references in case you want to use them in your personal branding.

Here are some of the responses I have had from clients

“This is great, thank you so much! It brought tears to my eyes on a couple of occasions.”

“I’ve been returning to your colours reading which is extraordinarily helpful and is speaking to my unconscious. Thank you so much for your very sensitive reading.”

“Catherine was able to distill the real essence of me (behind the colour masks I wear), and guide me towards the choices that would allow me to really shine.”

“Catherine is able to really listen and read between the lines without making assumptions or judgements. “

“The report I received from Catherine was stunningly accurate, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that I have referred to it every single day since I received it.  It’s worth more than its weight in gold.”

Bali Death Cafe

Death Cafes are held all over the world. A moment in space and time to reflect on death in a safe and open-minded space.

How we feel about it, our personal experiences, our hopes and fears.

I am a trained Death Doula (death companion) and Shamanic energy worker. I run these events to create a safe space for us to speak freely, without taboos or awkwardness, about a sacred – and maybe terrifying for you – moment that all of us will face one day. Or to share openly our experiences of others dying and how we really felt, not how we thought we were supposed to feel.

Next events:

Ubud, 3-5pm, Sunday Oct 18

Canggu, 1-3pm, Friday Oct 30

Just come with your heart and soul. Suggested contribution of 100k Rp will go to community projects. For more info contact windsofdiscovery@gmail.com

As prep you might be interested in this meditation to develop our relationship with both life and death. 

Deep Relaxation Sundays (yoga nidra / yogic sleep)

This is a relaxation practice that requires you to lie on your back on the floor (like you do at the end of a yoga class), as comfortably as possible – use several cushions and a duvet or blanket – to create yourself a cosy space. As you lie there I will guide you through your Yoga Nidra session.

Benefits reported by those participating in Yoga Nidra include

  • relief from physical or mental pain
  • increased creativity
  • improved ability to rest the mind, less frenetic mental activity
  • a sense of coming home to your true self
  • increased self-empowerment
  • peace, contentment, bliss

In this one hour weekly class there will be time to ask questions and raise any concerns as well as to experience a Yoga Nidra session. You can attend a single class, and you may find it more beneficial to have a regular attendance.

If you cannot make the time of the live session, you can order a recording and listen in your own time. You may also want to do both.

Tickets available from Eventbrite

What to expect

Morning light in Essaouira filters through the shutters of your spacious, comfortable room. Usually sunny. Can you hear the town starting to come to life? The barrows rumbling along the car-free alleys? The seagulls circling the returning fishing boats down at the harbour? The call to prayer? A child laughing?

Hold on to that magical sense of possibility as you slip on some comfy clothes and join us in the yoga room. A moment of peace. We will meditate and enjoy some gentle yoga to wake up our bodies and calm our minds. Don’t worry if you are new to yoga, I will explain everything and the emphasis is on YOU and what your body needs.

After time for a shower and getting dressed we will meet downstairs for freshly squeezed orange juice and breakfast. I am happy to answer any questions and help where I can – basically the time is yours. To grow, to unwind, to create… go where your heart takes you.

Later we will gather for early evening supper (unless you want to try one of the local restaurants – just let me know)  and, at around 9pm our end of day yoga and meditation.

Here’s what previous visitors have had to say

I haven’t felt so calm and – well – normal! for ages

I feel like I’ve been here for weeks. I feel completely at home
