Spirit Medium, Shaman & Sacred Life Consultant
For the past 30 years, Cathy Towle has worked in the field of spirituality, as a tarot diva and astrologer, medium, spirit-led shaman, minister and spiritual leader.
While developing tools for lasting change with spiritual leaders, and listening to the frustration of people seeking to make their lives better, Cathy saw a disconnect. The leaders were frustrated that people were not getting it, and the people were frustrated because they were not getting the results they needed. Having undergone her own dramatic change supported by her shamanic path, Cathy realized that the spirit world might hold an answer. As she relied more and more on her spirit connection for direction, and less and less on “knowing” what to do, a way of working emerged that has had a huge impact on her clients.
For Cathy, change in her life had come from 2 kinds of life-cracking moments, which created the modern version of “shaman sickness” that brings a potential shaman to their work. Living in NYC during 9-11 woke up her repressed Mediumship abilities in 2001, leading her to close her successful design business and work in the field of spirituality full time as both a medium and spirituality brand consultant/curriculum developer. In 2009, she suffered a series of setbacks that furthered this change. Starting with her mothers illness and death, her husbands job loss and battle with depression, increasing financial difficulties which led to 2 moves, and then the loss of her father, it could have been overwhelming. But due to the strong guidance she received, it became a time of both miracles and resilience, the help of wonderful people, and the incredible loving presence of spirit guidance every step of the way. Having had to trust spirit on the deepest of levels, Cathy healed from paralyzing shyness, shame, loss, PTSD, and her fears about embracing a shamanic led life. The continual work of applying her insights to her own problems, as well as those of her clients, has formed the basis for the spiritual lifestyle methods she teaches in her consultations and courses.
Cathy has one simple mission:
To empower people to move past blocks and thrive,
healing past trauma with shamanism, mediumship, and tarot.
