For the Ones who are (Almost) Ready to Feel it All.

Gently unfolding.
Peeling away
the untruths, misinformation, and misperceptions.

Feeling deeply into the body.

All the flowing.
The knowing.
The pain.

The chronic anxiety.

The blockages that halt everything
until we make the space to go within
and address them.

Finding self again,
after having been in the world for far too long
without dipping inward
to replenish.

Too busy.
Too rushed.
Too stressed.

Not enough breath to breathe.


While inwardly…
an explosion of expansion.
Vibrating ever more fervently
just beneath the surface.

Pure potential—aching, itching, crying to be free.

Almost ready.
Almost ready to be ready.

Everything that is meant to be,
it cannot not be.

Shifting back to center.

An unfolding,
inching back into a state of grace.

Inching back into the sanctuary of the inner wilderness.
Back into spirit.

Finding Source
and re-Source-fulness.

Finding the give, within, to love again.
Not just one person, family or friends…
but all people.

for the wellspring that feeds eternally.

The unutterable Source,
accessible within.

Cat Simmons

Catherine Simmons is an Enlightened Society junky with a bountiful array of passions. In a nutshell, while she champions gentleness and groundedness, she is mildly insane about the outdoors and the inner workings of becoming our best, most mindful selves. She believes in human kindness and mutual responsibility. She is teaching herself to free-dive and spends inordinate amounts of time in the mountains, now that she is healing from a seven-year M.E. illness—a journey which in itself has been a wonderful teacher. She is a dancer and a poet, and is studying to become a Natural Health Practitioner. She finds this pretty thrilling, because understanding the inner workings of pathology and the ways back to health are right at the top of her list of passions; followed closely by making yummy healthy food and helping others. She lives in Cape Town, South Africa, with her favorite side kick—a border collie named Malaika. One of her dreams is to cycle through Africa, side-kick in tow. Connect with her on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.
