– What They Say –

  • I would recommend without hesitation. Catrina is clearly genuine and obviously answering part of her calling doing this work. Her knowledge put me at ease without intimidating with too much alien speech and explained any foreign terms used in a way I can remember them.

    Catrina is really well spoken and has a natural humourous tone that helps me to be engaged and not put off by any stuffiness. More, Catrina's spirited delivery allowed the material to really land for me and this is the important part; I could read, and have read, books on the subject and watched videos, Catrina however made it connect quickly and enabled me to make it my own through observation and repetition.

  • Don’t miss a chance to work with Catrina - she is an incredible teacher! I took her Śabda Meditation: Silent-Mantra Meditation Course and was blown away. She has that rare combination of being very versed in ancient spiritual wisdom while also being able to make it accessible and easy to understand.

    Before Catrina, I had taken a course with the TM center in NYC but it didn’t really click. Catrina helped quickly bring it all into clear view for me. I am grateful there is someone like Catrina making this type of mediation accessible to all. If you get the chance to take a course, go for it! You'll enjoy yourself, learn a lot more than you thought you would, and deepen your mediation practice.

  • It's a practice that's completely different from anything I had seen before and more than seeing 'benefits' or wanting to see them, it feels right.  It's something that has already become meaningful in my life. Classes were a safe space where I could feel free to relax and take the most out of the teachings.

    Valentina S.Bogotá, Colombia
  • I enjoyed the humanity, empathy, and love that transpired throughout the weekend the most; and recommend this to anyone looking for a more meaningful, empowering, and happier life.

    The course is a marked cornerstone in the spiritual path I've taken and has provided me with great tools to go on on the journey with faith more than ever. More importantly, beyond the form, namely the framework of the course, and the knowledge and experience that Catrina offers.  She has the gifted ability to share infinite divine love, which is fundamental for the teachings to be fully integrated.
