Women's Song Circles
Fall 2023 | In Person
Inspired by ancient, Earth-based wisdom, these circles are infused with the unifying power of prayer songs, both old and new. We sing in mother tongues (rooted languages) from around the world, and we practice orienting to daily life as a walk in beauty.
We circle and sing, weaving a multi-generational and intercultural collective of sisterhood through devotional song. We co-create a communal space of prayer, dance, and ritual.
These sessions are led through an oral body-centered approach that empowers women to free the natural, intuitive, voice for healing, joy and expression.
We circle around the original altar of all peoples, the fire and water and encourage participants to explore their own unique relationship to these elements. If you are called to be a keeper of songs and lover of the Earth, join us.
Co-facilitated by Kate West and Gabriela Masala, Austin Women's Song Circles are a life-giving, bubbling wellspring of vibrant women, gathering in community song, prayer, dance and the celebration of life.

Dream Wisdom for the Waking World: Level 1 Master Course
October 5-December 7, 2021 | Tuesdays 7-9 pm CT | Virtual
Tap the wisdom, guidance and insight of your dreamtime to fuel your evolution and benefit your daily life. The mysterious realms of our dreams take us into the territory of our deep psyche, our InterBeing and interdimensional communication. In dreamscapes we astral travel, commune with beings known and unknown; process our well of emotions, receive a wealth of revelation and resolutions to the most simple and the most weighted issues of our lives. Yet many people don’t remember dreams, nor have a clue how to distill their richness and integrate their wisdom into the waking world. Our dreams never lie. They always come to us in the service of health and wholeness. Learning to circulate dream wisdom into your conscious reality is an integral step to being whole, fulfilled and free from the inside out.
It is time to wake up! It is time to tap the big magic of the dreamtime and apply its intelligence to your living. In this master course, I will give you the leap of the cat, by sharing my lifetime of dream study in Jungian Dream therapy, Shamanic and Indigenous Dreaming, whole being health, energy medicine and the sacred arts. This territory is pure magic. In these realms we enter the supernatural and paranormal. With safe and playful facilitation, and through direct transmission, I will teach you how to use my trusted tools, tips and best practices to access your inner wisdom dreamer and conscious creator. You will learn multitudes from your dream symbols, messages and content. Additionally, the collective group dreaming intelligence, will offer emergent insights and expanded consciousness that will blow your mind.
In this Master Course you will learn:
- How to increase dream recall and bridge distilled content into daily life
- How to access your life relevant genius and higher intelligence in dreaming and waking
- Expand your understanding and application of the dream language, symbols and energy
- A unique body of Dream Wisdom(tm) teachings developed over decades of practice
- How to develop your natural superpowers and unique ways of seeing
You will receive:
- An expansion of your ability to read energy and matter in the dream field and waking life
- Potent transmissions of dream mastery through a fusion of proven skill sets
- Individual, therapeutic dream distillation focus that catalyzes your personal growth
- Core level healing, clearing and guidance offered through transformational facilitation
