Kat Beaudoin's passion is to facilitate consciousness raising activities following 35+ year career in land use and transportation planning. Kat's government work facilitated collaborative community-building sessions fostering quality of life, environmental stewardship and inter-local cooperation. She is a natural leader with strong collaboration and facilitation skills.
In 2011, she began private consulting practice and her formal studies in shamanism. Kat's interactive and inclusive sessions begin with grounding and intention setting. An opportunity for check in occurs before overviewing the planned activity. Music, poetry, movement and other creative arts are used as a gateway to the soul. Sessions provide time for participants to take notes and to share in small and large groups. Closing each session, participants are drawn into a circle activity with song or dance to celebrate the insights and interpersonal connections made during the gathering.
She facilitates sessions on goddess archetypes and explores how we are subconsciously influenced by the roles they are known for. She shares her knowledge of the Medicine Wheel as a foundation for going inward to realize our connection to all that is. She engages participants in healing ancestral lineages in the belief that these are the wounds being played out on the world stage today.
She studied Healing and Therapeutic Gardens and the Boston Architectural College in 2011. She convenes groups to share her knowledge of creating sacred spaces.
Between June 2016 and June 2017, Kat traveled cross country with her canine companion. It was a profound healing journey for her. On her return she re-established her life and community in Gardiner, Maine. Now more than ever, she is feeling the call to share her knowledge and her passion for doing the 'inner work' that is so desperately needed in this age.

Experience facilitating other events & workshops
What year did you begin facilitating the Work That Reconnects?
I use shamanic practice, guided meditation, the visual and performing arts as a way of aiding people in going within to connect with their inner selves. My new website (katbeaudoin.com) is under development. I have two other websites that will go down when the new site is up - they are EvolvingNature.com and IntentionalGardens.com. I would like to share: TreePeople.org, Andrewharvey.net, deepakchopra.com, Ancestralhealing.com, mofga.org,
