A bit about Kathryn
“I don’t so much try to live mindfully as I do consciously.” Kathryn Diaz – a passionate therapist with a desire to connect people with their shadows and integrate with their true self – says when asked about the passion behind her life work. “I’m committed to perpetually developing self-awareness and working on myself. Knowing who I am, how to understand my feelings, and why I’m feeling those things is so important.
Also, learning to take responsibility for my choices and actions is the reason behind what I do.”
For Kathryn, mindfulness is only a part of the process of integration, and the process isn’t about being perfect. For Kathryn, the mission lies in living a meaningful life and entering into an authentic existence and reaching her potential as a human being.
“For me, it’s not about being perfect or even nice all the time; it’s about aspiring towards being WHOLE.”
