Testimonials and Interviews

'A tapestry of great beauty,

strengths, dreams, laughter, tears and love.

How lovely to be a single thread among many single threads,

to transform into a tapestry of loving souls.

Maybe this is the alchemy'

'This was my experience during Awakened Bellydance with the founder Katie Holland facilitating yesterday. Fully activated, fully electrified, fully allowing every cell of my body to vibrate and sing with the universe, whilst feeling grounded and connected to the physical and the earth by the unconditional love flowing through the hands of the women around'

'What a wonderful couple of days dancing with others. My cup is filled and my energy largely re charged. In spite of having been ill in bed for the large part of 10 days, I managed to participate in the classes (having given myself permission to lie down or leave at any point if I needed) and contrary to my fear of collapse, I actually raised more energy and spirit through the act of movement and engagement with my body than I would have from sleep. This is a great lesson for me as facilitator as well as participant......that the un - wellness and inertia we often feel can also be shifted through the simple act of movement and engagement with what is present, dropping into ourselves'

 

'Just wanted to share that after moving through my journey through my life as a little girl, young woman, mother to 4 and grandmother to 6 ..... AWBD brought out the woman in me I never knew even existed. Never felt more close to other women than when we dance AWBD together'

'Thank you for being such an awesome teacher and space holder. You totally rock. Loved every minute of this weekend. Wonderful to find another who can hold such deep containers, I really needed this immersion, in so many ways, thank you from my heart, womb and soul'

'When I woke up this morning I was astounded, literally lying there feeling so different....the sense of wonderment was palpable. Also the stillness inside myself has increased dramatically. When I did an illumination tonight with a friend as part of my practise cases I could feel the shift in myself and how that was affecting my being and everything I am doing and all around me. The sense of presence in the room was stunning..quite literally, neither of us could move for quite a while afterwards. Incredible!! I'm really excited to see how all this integrates into my life now'

'Thank you and big love from my heart to all our hearts and inner warrior strong spirits. Our tribe was created and will forever be''

 

''Still have head and body vibrating with all we shared together in Immersion weekend. Thank you so much for brilliant facilitator lead as always''

 

''I believe the work of Katie Holland and others is to heal these wounds and empower ourselves to be whole and be the owner of our bodies, the inner flame of our passion and creativity. This shame lives in us as a cultural collective, even if the voice inside is a little one, it is there'

'Awakened Belly Dance Facilitator training was everything I'd hoped for and more. Set in a beautiful location and hosted by a bright, cheeky goddess, with everyones best interest at heart. I experienced a deeper connection with myself, and the opportunity to fully be with the energy blocks I'd been carrying. I explored and moved through various body-mind patterns, releasing unhelpful believes and deepening into my path. It was a potent experience of reclamation and the experience is still unwinding within me. I feel ready and supported to lead my own groups, encouraging this magic to ripple further outwards and create a larger community of dancing Shakti beings liberating themselves. I recommend Katie Holland with all my being. Thank you'

'A huge thankyou for your workshops yesterday. They specifically worked well together & I found them moving and inspiring. Loved the blessing dance, what a perfect way to start. The last one really touched me, in life as well as dance & I felt today a real shift. I found today & yesterday I could keep eye contact with acquaintances (as opposed to close friends) more and spoke more and let myself be seen and heard without shame, embarrassment, apology, fear of being judged or fear of shining too brightly. It was groundbreaking for me. I felt it made a real difference to me and I'm sure it will continue to help with future dances as well as in the day to day. I really do feel such a difference from being around you. So I am very thankful to have you as such an inspiring mentor in my life''

Online course - ''day 5 I felt the fear of appearing arrogant, then posted the pics and words per our assignment. Then I took a deep breath and realized: Those who don't want me to grow big are no longer going to be my focus. My focus is now growing into my own fullness. Eye-opening for me. Thank you Katie Holland!'

'I had considered seeing a counselor to help me through some major transitions in my life, but then I had a go at Katie Holland's free online course. I love to move, I love belly dance and felt that this method could work for me. So I then signed up for the 9 month course. I like to put meaning behind the movements and use the movements to open my mind and help me think about things differently. The combination of movement, vocalization, free writing and journaling has really helped me to come to terms with events from the past and begin to move on with love and consciousness. Having an online community is inspiring and helps to put my own issues into perspective. It's eye opening to see everyone revealing similar fears. We all like to portray an image of success, so it's hard to see that underneath we all have the same fears. Keeping up appearances, the facade, it's only part of the story. Knowing that we all have the same fears deep down is comforting, it makes me feel normal and makes overcoming them seem possible. Awakened Bellydance has helped me to see my dreams as something that can be made into reality - ARE being made into reality. Bringing my imagination to life and into the physical realm. It feels so positive to work with my physical body in order to sort out my mind, heal my thoughts, cure my consciousness. I love the feeling of energy coursing through my body. I am enough, I can do it - I AM doing it. Everyone else is enough too. Shake it all up and let it go. Recognise your patterns and who they belong to. It's physical therapy for the mind. Let go of that which does not serve you. Awakened Bellydance even kickstarted my menstrual cycle after being pregnant and tandem breastfeeding for 2 years, thereby marking another transition in my life!'

'Thank you very much! I just caught up with this and loved the feeling of the movements.I can say straight off that this course has given me much more confidence in following my body's own movements and I feel quite peaceful with it, though there is lots still to do! There is more work to be done at my end with the journaling side of things- I feel I want to go through the course again and journal more next time- I have been enjoying the practice rather than the journaling this time around! The one issue that always comes up though is feeling good enough and that I keep on receiving guidance on is " yes you are- just get on with it"! Interesting how doing this " free" dance gives me so much guidance!!! Much love to you and thank you so much for this brilliant course. I really felt is was perfect for where I'm at and intend to continue practicing it'

'Awesome!'

'I appreciate being held and guided through - on the surface, very simple, every day actions. Yet, to know the power of them (and realise my previous resistance to them was connected to that power). The power to stop time and empower my own innate ability to love and heal. It’s a gift that keeps returning'

'Knowing my body can tell a different story to the one it was conditioned to tell
It is gold, real gold'

'Awakened Belly dance is an incredibly powerful and and direct tool for self transformation'

'During the meditation I felt there was a tremendous shift in me. I felt emotional, also empowered and stronger. I seemed brighter and clearer in my mind going onto the dancing. There was a significant message I was hearing and few days later I was having  conversations. This has now resulted in handing in my resignation (retiring) which felt a great weight off my shoulders and I am now embracing and preparing a new lifestyle after also going through cancer treatment... time for a change!!' 

 

'A huge effect on my life! Thank you for this experience in the workshops, I do believe that weekend helped me enormously'

'Taking part on the online course with Katie revealed some new surprising, deep and significant revelations about my sensuality, which I wouldn't have arrived at without the help of their heart based work. Thank you to you both, keep going with this enchanting heart and important work!'

'Sunlight glistened on the snow topped mountains. Eleven women embarked on a journey of a lifetime, guided and supported by Katie Holland. We breathed, we feared but we trusted and within the safe, protected space of our room, we danced, allowing the music to shake up our bodies and free our minds. We let go and the layers began to peel away.

Every day, we learned, shared, discussed and laughed and then we danced again, fear, judgement, disempowerment and pain, relinquished from our bodies and minds, into the earth to be transmuted to the love we craved.

Together, we healed, allowing our minds to be free to think, to create and to manifest and to step closer to our bodies, to feel the emotions and energy rising through us.Deeper we delved into the closed off parts of ourselves, removing all obstacles and reinstating the power of the goddess, the women we truly are. We reached up, beyond ourselves, out into the universe, to the stars from whence we came'

'Katie is woman, dancer, teacher and healer and I’m blessed to have been part of this unique, transformational experience, shared with a group of awesome women who I now call sisters and friends. With Katie’s guidance, I look forward to sharing with the beautiful women of the world, helping them to be free of the constraints that bind them and imbuing them with the power that is truly their own'

'The way you looked at me Katie in Bulgaria made me believe that there must be something. The same kind of beauty inside and magical also that I see in other women and people. Also while practising awbd in Bulgaria I realised how "small" I was thinking myself. I got so much love and mirroring with you awesome sisters. That is changing and I believe in myself so much more, even though there is still lots to do'

'I've been doing morning pages for a while now and did them this morning. At lunch I was thinking about some stuff and feeling down when i had an urge to do some more pages. Talk about unleashed.... have written pages! The stuff which came up. Stuff I havent really got out and looked at for years. So emotional. Tears all the way and snot everywhere. So different for me as tears are usually cut off at the first hint or suppressed as quickly as poss. I let them fall as I wrote and wrote not thinking much. More accessing the feeling and what was running through my mind back then. Its been exhausting but some things are becoming clearer. I think between AWBD and inner dance there is a lot I'm starting to access and work with. So Thank You ladies for sharing this journey with me. I just needed someone to share with and you I can trust with my heart to bear witness for me. Strange words I know but they feel right. Important shit happened today and I needed some people to just know it happened xx'

'I think what stands out for me was times I was really emotional and allowed to be just that with love and acceptance. There was no one trying to fix me or close me down. The emotion was accepted. I can remember sobbing on your shoulder Katie and you held me but at the same time kept facilitating. That felt very safe like ...its fine to fall apart ....keep on with it and we are still here and will be here when you are ready'

A before and after testimony:

'Hi, Katie. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for this weekend. I attended three of your workshops as I loved your workshops at your last visit. Each workshop (Bollywood, Balinese / Nepalese and Awakening) were all so different and I loved them all for different reasons. The Bollywood class was just so much fun! And the speed definitely helps tighten your transitions. The Balinese / Nepalese was beautiful and helped me with control and focusing on making more simple moves look beautiful. But the class that hit me the most was the Awakening class. I'll be honest, had I know what it would entail I may have run for the hills as it hit home emotionally. My husband and I have been trying for a baby for 18 months and whilst I know it can take time, we are facing the reality that it is looking like we need medical help and are waiting on a specialist fertility consultation to see if IVF will have a shot at working. I've known I've had issues for a while but it turns out my husband does too and that was a curve ball. It breaks my heart seeing him reconciling himself with that, plus the realisation we may not have a child naturally. Not that that matters; we have options. But it's heartbreaking. The work to cleanse out wombs and pull that positive energy into us and speak out our wishes broke me. And when my friend and I were working together, I know she was sending every ounce of her hope into me. I could feel it. She could feel it. She's 22 years older than I am but the most amazing friend and surrogate Auntie and we are even more connected now. I felt emotionally drained on the drive back home, but also hopeful. More balanced'

After:

'Hi. I just wanted to give you an update to emails we shared a couple of years ago after JoY. We did a workshop where we spoke out a word and worked in pairs to meditate and connect. It made me cry as my word was ‘faith’. My husband and I had been trying and failing to conceive for two years and just before JoY we were told not to get our hopes up. Well...I am 23 weeks pregnant! And not only that...with twin girls! It feels like a miracle. We are going to raise these little girls to be caring, thoughtful but strong women in this beautiful world we have. I want them to embrace who they are and not suffer with the confidence issues I did which held me back as a child. I always think of that group we did - it was special x''

''OMG this is just amazingly awesome. I went to a workshop on Sat! Be prepared to open and shine!!! Thank you so much Katie."
"Thank you Katie, your wisdom and intuition are outstanding. I’m still buzzing!''

“This kind of feminine awakening & connecting course is a must do for any type of woman''.

 

''We were all deeply touched by Katie's teaching and the experience of AWBD. It was a powerful and beautiful experience, painful yet I felt and learned so much about myself and others and relationships, and so much more'

'Katie held the space as if we were supported in a womb. Soft warm nurturing safe protected, as though we were developing embryos. Moving flowing through stages of growth. Rather like trimesters of pregnancy, we blossomed and grew, dancing the whisperings of our souls as we immersed into each chakra letting go the shackles of fear and judgement. Healing past present and future pain and suffering, and transmuting what layers presented into love and light. Breathing into life our hidden depths, our truth, just being, dancing, shimmying singing shouting screaming laughing smiling tearful passionate angry raging at times, noticing our dormant connection to the universe, no longer feeling isolated or separate. Embracing all that unfolded and letting the scaffolding of the ego it fall away. What a unique, beautiful, mind altering transformative journey of the soul, a priceless gift to our being, to my way of being. ‘Let’s dance and awaken the fire within!''


''Katie, I feel incredibly blessed and privileged to have been part of your first awakened belly dance training, and to have experienced it all with such a beautiful tribe of wild sisters, please never ever forget you are all F*****G AWESOME!!!! Namaste xx'

'I went along to the Awakened Bellydance facilitator training day with an open mind and heart. As a teacher Katie guided us through along so many paths filled with so many experiences and beautiful practices. We were in an environment created by Katie that felt safe, nurturing and filled with an inspiration that evolved and flourished within each one of us as we moved through the course. We were led with love, compassion and an insight that only could have come from the purest truest and highest source, and as we evolved and flourished, we stumbled as the path was rocky and painful and deeply emotional. But all the time Katie with love, care and an intuitive sense that was all emcompassing of mother, woman, sister, friend and seer, guided us through. And we reached a level of understanding that will continue to develop and deepen as we continue our own practices. The knowledge and influences Katie imparted with subtleness yet qualities of inner strength can only be put in words. But the depth is immeasurable, and the memories and creativity she nourished went beyond the soul, to a place I have never been before. If I can in time, share some of Katie's training and knowledge and ancient wisdom of the universe to other women, it would be such an honour and tribute to her universal insight and wisdom. I am so fortunate to have found my tribe, my sisters, my inner path, and life journey'

'You are very welcome ~ you are so very talented, and I gained so much from your dance......I will recommend you to everybody in search of inner exploration and growth xxx so much love and gratitude to you xxx'

 

'Awakened Bellydance is a bit like peeling an onion, as well as much more fun and enjoyable, with a healthy dose of the indescribable! 
If you're anything like me peeling an onion hurts and brings tears... But I need to do it to create something tasty and authentic, I like to be flexible with recipes but sometimes delicious and luscious really requires that peeled onion.
The process of peeling our own layers of protection and releasing our stories will be painful at times yet will reveal something beautiful: your awesome beautiful and exquisite Inner Goddess. There will be those layers that seem half skin and half onion that will leave you wondering what to do with them. In the kitchen of Awakened Bellydance you are not left alone to figure it out, you are supported and loved, part of a tribe led by an amazing and truly inspiring chef, Katie. The possibilities are endless yet what you are to create will be clear. You will step into who you are, become your true self, finding the strength to be your truth and speak your truth. No knifes, only movement, breath, dance and music there to carry you on your journey of transformation, as well as the magic of the Universe that will bring the people you need around you to hold you up and propel you forward. For the first time in my life I understand what is meant by sisterhood. Feels good. Dare to step into the womb of the unknown, the adventure will be greater than you can imagine.

Thank you Katie for all the "onions" you peeled to create Awakened Bellydance. I am in awe of all the ingredients you've layered together and incredibly grateful for your openness in sharing all your knowledge'

'I seem to be noticing how tough life is for so many women, from unkind cheating partners to financial worries and everything in between; It's a hard cruel existence for many. I am so grateful to have met Katie and people like her who are changing lives''


''Michelle and Katie ran theirs with sensitivity, grace and joy, yet it was full of power. After spending the last few years realising that my resistance towards women’s gatherings and femininity was actually more of a rejection of the way our society had been portraying these things, I have been slowly re-connecting with unknown parts of myself''

''Despite being in a very loving relationship, I was not completely at ease with my sexuality, or enjoying sex as much as I knew was possible, Michelle and Katie’s guidance through their powerful techniques helped me to understand more deeply some of the reasons around this, and I’m definitely feeling more sensual!''

''I'm tempted to do it  (the training) again Katie!''

''I am REALLY tempted to do it all again Katie. Will have to see the outcome of the next few weeks before serious consideration, but something to seriously look towards as a maybe reality. It would be so beautiful if it happened. Wouldn't it be weird if you had almost all of your first babies on this course all over again!!!!!!'

So thank you. I think you're such an inspirational woman. I read your blog often and adore how open about your journey. You exude such calmness and balance that it's wonderful. I love how inclusive and easy it is to be in your classes and workshops. I hope to see you again in the future x'

'Wow! I feel my wings! - Katie holds such a magical and supportive presence. Thank you''

''This was quite an experience, and I am honoured to have shared the time with so many wonderful women, I felt more connected then I have been for a while, I am bright, sparkly even! I feel the experience has done me the world of good, as I sink into my bed shortly- but still buzzing! I am cat watching- playing''

''I find Awakened belly dance to be a very spiritual and empowering experience. For me it both enlivens and empowers my spirit and my own sense of self. Opening me up to the oneness of all things''

''Loved your classes. I'm older now so dance for pleasure and to keep fit but always ready to learn. Awakened Bellydance class great insight and having many spiritual experiences in my life helped me tune in to be calmer. I just felt happiness that us ladies were as one. We all carry baggage in our lives, some deal with problems easier than others. Luckily I cry in private and ask my angels to make me strong. Thankyou Katie for lovely workshops and for making me aware of the shit that we deal with in life xx''

Testimony from the Earth Soul Dance Retreat 
'Dearest Suzy and Katie 
I would just like to send you both this message holding my deepest gratitude for the space and time I have shared with you and the circle of women this weekend. The events of this weekend have touched both my heart and soul. I know there is a lot of processing to be done now. I'm not sure what lies ahead but I know for sure it will look differently and more beautiful than it would have done a few days ago. Love and heartfelt blessings to you both for your love, holding and generosity. I hope our paths cross again soon xxx'

'I actually went into the workshop  a bit sceptical but then pushed the idea away saying I wanted something positive from it. The initial holding hands with one of my friends was weird, I could hear my other two friends sobbing at one point and that surprised me (and upset me a bit) but then I went back to concentrating on the breathing etc. right towards the end I suddenly started to really violently shake or shiver all the way through my body and arms etc. It shook us both up. The back to back bit was more difficult I think my friend wasn't enjoying the experience and she felt heavy and I felt unbalanced? When I was looking in her eyes I felt happy to have her friendship and happy to be there.  When we were individually doing the pushing out thing I felt  a bit strange then too but enjoyed the prancing around freely part. at the final standing posture with our hands on the heart. you were going around to everyone in turn. I was towards the end of the circle so it was a long time. Anyway I was getting a bit tired from the posture and was suddenly aware (eyes closed) of an intense heat radiating behind me and then some warmth in front of me too. Suddenly in front of my still shut eyes there was this amazing red orange glow and warmth with a few black feathery streaks a bit like flames but not. This continued for a while it was lovely and warm and really enjoyable. I didn't want it to end. I was taken aback by feeling your presence so obviously and the strange orangey glow. I wasn't frightened but calm, what does it mean - does it mean anything? I was surprised by others that had cried too and I was a bit confused? You did warn us though so I was comforted by that. I would have said something if I was maybe one of the first to talk but as the conversation seemed to go off track I thought maybe I was the only one that felt those things so felt embarrassed to share. I am doing stuff now I never dreamed I would do and although I still get worked up about performing I love it when I am up there. For me dancing has changed my life I am a much happier person these days and try to face up to new challenges like the learning to drive. But I am still aware I could easily go back into depression in the future and it haunts me somewhat. I do feel held back but I really do try to be more positive these days. I spend more time outside as I also suffer  with SAD and its coming up to that time soon! I love being outside in the garden, at the allotment or anywhere outside woods, beach etc as much as dancing - I love nature and hate to be inside too long. I have been wondering if there is anything else I can do to heal myself and stop worrying about everything?'

'I feel unbelievably clear and joyful - amazing!'

 

'I can't tell you how much I enjoyed that awakening dance'

'It was definitely unexpected, (not sure what I did expect but it wasn't tears, and so soon in the workshop). It was a very intense workshop and probably the experience that will last long after the other workshops have become a dim memory. It certainly took the rest of the afternoon to process one's feelings as there was such a range of emotion. You feel a complex mix of vulnerability and freedom, love and sadness. It certainly was a unique experience that I feel privileged to have participated in. Thank-you for sharing it was amazing!'

'I think I must have awaken (anger side) something, I wasn't taking any rubbish on that day from anyone hahaha!'

'It was wonderful : still coming down! It was lovely to meet you: and feel your quality: your open heartedness. My crown feels wide open : I feel it now: I had not thought how easy it is to access consciousness! All sound now is "piercing" me. I'm now aware of another sense that was "shut down'


'Thank you for sharing your beautiful soul. That you be an example : of knowing how to open gates that the heart sometimes will lock down. With gratitude for a lovely evening and new doors opened!'

'Just had confirmation from work that I can take time off attend this facilitator training course with Katie Holland in Bulgaria next April to May. I am beyond excited and feeling incredibly blessed to have such a gifted and love & light filled teacher and mentor to learn from. So very thankful for this opportunity. Katie is in the U.K throughout September and October as well and I can more than recommend taking any/every opportunity to train and learn from her'

 

'I just wanted to thank you and Katie very much indeed for Tuesday’s Awakened belly-dancing and Inner dance. I know I have written briefly on Facebook but I also wanted to write something to you both at slightly greater length (which you could put on a website if you would like, although there’s no need!). It was a very joyful experience and I felt very well when I arrived home- many of my usual “ pains” were gone!'

'So enjoyed the workshop I did with you. I got alot from it and I'll treasure it always xx Thanks xx'

'My heart feels so full after your workshop. I feel totally energised. Thank you for this gift xx'

'Loved all the workshops but Katie Hollands 'find who is within' and awakened belly dance was an inspiring workshop and has helped me make a life decision which I have been putting off for far too long - thank you Katie x'

'I come as you know from the background of having tried the Eurythmy for a few months about 17 years ago, followed by a few years of each of Tai Chi, QiGong and yoga and many years of classical music playing and teaching, Reiki training and healing, tuning fork training and healing and more recently drumming and chanting, in which I run small groups. I quite often dance freely at home to classical pieces I am learning, or when I am drumming, or to chakra dance cds and dvds. I really loved what you offered and it felt just right for me to develop dancing in this way. It was gentle, my body felt progressively freer, the ideas behind it felt beautiful and it was very respectful of where each of us was. Although the moves were new to me  it was well presented so that i felt able to follow.  I would love to experience some more if and when Katie returns to UK and if Galit decides to train in Awakened bellydance or when she offers Inner dance classes, if I am able to get to the venue. I wish you both all the best in developing these dance activities- very freeing and uplifting!'

'I was so impressed with the taster class for Awakened Bellydance I attended last year with Katie Holland, that I immediately booked on the facilitator training. Not knowing how I was going to go and how I was going to pay for it, (I just had to be there!). The course was fun, challenging and enlightening. Katie has developed a system that is a wonderful experience, as well as getting deep down to the core of one’s psyche. 
The system does what it says on the tin. It awakens the soul and clears the heart bringing a new dimension to one’s existence. Katie certainly knows her stuff and has really inspired me. Although a novice at Belly dancing I always found that things were explained well and I was supported along the way. 
The atmosphere was electric and very positive. Katie held the space fantastically, and we always felt safe and secure. 
I would not have missed the course for the world and would go again and again'

'Well I realised why I didn't vocalise much on Sat...think I was holding back. Driving to work on Sun at 8am and mulling over some crappy family conversations and got swept away with such sadness and rage and just did three huge roar/screams and sobbed for about 2 mins, then felt ok. Guess things are coming out!'

'Thank u so very much for inviting me to join u on yesterday's journey...the more I think about it the more I feel so priviledged to have been able to be a part of such an extraordinary day...it was amazing and much enjoyed! Thank you!'

'Hi Katie, I know you must get hundreds of emails like this everyday, but your workshop in awakened belly dance was a real eye opener for me...and a bit of a heart opener too! I have had various crappy things happen to me over the last couple of years, but they have helped to magnify the amazing people I have around me, and the blessings that I have. I give thanks for them every day. After arriving home my beloved little elderly black cat was literally on her last legs, she was put to sleep the following day. As fate would have it, no one was around to help me get her to the vet hospital, or to be with me when I had to say goodbye. I had been dreading this moment for years and yet, I was able to cope. I could cry and feel sad, but feel solace and calm in the knowing she was in a better place. I swear this was because of the healing and understanding that I experienced in your workshop, as if it had prepared me for this. My mother is also going through a cancer scare at the moment too, and your knowledge of letting go of past family issues and genetic history really resonated with me. I have tried to use the methods I learned in your class to help me with my anxious spells, and i was so happy that once again, i was able to open my heart and mind, and expel a lot of negative emotions. It is the strangest thing to be crying and laughing at the same time!!

All in all I would like to say a heartfelt thank you for showing me something beautiful, special and powerful. I am beginning to save up so I can attend one of your awakened belly dance training courses, as I left your work shop with my spirit shouting 'YOU NEED TO GO AND LEARN THIS!' :-) I am keeping an eye on your workshops in the uk and hope to go to another one soon. Sending you thanks and happy smiles x'

'Amazing day, thank you all so much!'

'Lovely to be part of such a wonderful experience! Thank you so much!'

'I had a truly moving experience working with Katie in Awakening session, which is why I am going to spend two weeks at her retreat in Sophia. Different reasons from (the post) above but everything we did reached deep into my psyche and touched my heart in a loving, healing and meaningful way. Just need more, and two weeks was irresistible'

'A huge thankyou for your workshops yesterday. They specifically worked well together & I found them moving and inspiring. Loved the blessing dance, what a perfect way to start. The last one really touched me, in life as well as dance & I felt today a real shift. I found today & yesterday I could keep eye contact with acquaintances (as opposed to close friends) more and spoke more and let myself be seen and heard without shame, embarrassment, apology, fear of being judged or fear of shining too brightly. It was groundbreaking for me. I felt it made a real difference to me and I'm sure it will continue to help with future dances as well as in the day to day. I really do feel such a difference from being around you. So I am very thankful to have you as such an inspiring mentor in my life. I'm not saying I'm gonna transform overnight but its a shift in the right direction. Thankyou'

'I’ve just spent 5 days participating in the Awakened Belly dance facilitators training. This is the 3rd time I’ve been on facilitators training having done the 1st and 2nd ones and I wanted to share with you my thoughts about how I’ve experienced AWBD grow.
It feels like the whole process of AWBD has gone through the alchemical stages within itself refining and transmuting into deeper spaces. The energy felt more activating and went deeper, I feel like it’s organically evolved,  strengthened and intensified'.

'It was wonderful. I'm still coming down! It was lovely to meet you and feel your quality: your open heartedness. My crown feels wide open. I feel it now. I had not thought how easy it is to access consciousness! All sound now is "piercing" me now aware of another sense that was "shut down". Thankyou for sharing your beautiful soul. That you be an example of knowing how to open gates that the heart sometimes will lock down. With gratitude for a lovely evening and new doors opened'
 

'I went along to the Awakened Bellydance facilitator training with an open mind and heart. As a teacher Katie guided us through along so many paths filled with so many experiences and beautiful practices. We were in an environment created by Katie that felt safe, nurturing and filled with an inspiration that evolved and flourished within each one of us as we moved through the course. We were led with love, compassion and an insight that only could have come from the purest truest and highest source, and as we evolved and flourished, we stumbled as the path was rocky and painful and deeply emotional. But all the time Katie with love, care and an intuitive sense that was all emcompassing of mother, woman, sister, friend and seer, guided us through. And we reached a level of understanding that will continue to develop and deepen as we continue our own practices. The knowledge and influences Katie imparted with subtleness yet qualities of inner strength can only be put in words. But the depth is immeasurable, and the memories and creativity she nourished went beyond the soul, to a place I have never been before.  If I can in time, share some of Katie's training and knowledge and ancient wisdom of the universe to other women, it would be such an honour and tribute to her universal insight and wisdom. I am so fortunate to have found my tribe, my sisters, my inner path, and life journey'

'Lovely Katie! So greatful many times for you to pushing me on the edge of my growth, finding my own path and daring to walk along it even if I'm time to time so fucking scared. You could see something in me and in us all that was became  blossoming later. Miss you Katie and dear sisters!
I find you all so supportive in my heart all ways when I have hard times. You all rock!'

'HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY! -The future is female!

This weekend I was lucky to participate in Katie Holland – Awakened Bellydance in Germany.

 

-Yes! It´s Katie Holland!

 

-Yes! It´s about the divine feminine!

 

-Yes! It´s (Belly)dance and Yes! I am a man!

 

All I can say for now: I would like to encourage every man or anybody to push your boundaries and think outside the box. If you feel the call for healing inside, follow and embrace your shadow goddess!

You are soulful. You are emotional. You are spiritual. You are magic. You are both of the light and the dark. You are human. You are enough. Do not deny any aspects of who you are. A healthy soul is a whole soul'

'I am forever grateful to Katie Holland for remembering first. You are a Goddess’ gift.

Today I left Katie Holland – Awakened Bellydance in Germany as a completely different person than I entered on Friday. Miracles happened again. True magic. Inner alchemy. I can‘t wait to grow and expand, evolve and awaken further during the Awakened Bellydance™ FT'

'This weekend (fitting for international women's day) 

I had the pleasure to take part in Katie Holland – Awakened Bellydance in Germany.

It was a crazy ride but worth all the physical, emotional and energetic sweat. Many things came into motion and will transform and manifest in beautiful ways. Thank you Katie Holland for your precious creation and to all the other beautiful souls who took the journey as well. I feel at peace and I am re-enforced to continue my path with baladi and its inner magic among other things. Thank you'

'Back home and reflecting - I’m not sure the words came out my mouth but it is that realisation that I am not my body, not my ego but built of eternal atoms and that the dissolution is wonderful not frightening'

 

'I took part in the most incredible process today. Whirling and whirling through fears, blocks and mind chatter into an open channel between earth and heaven, playing with light waves and travelling the universe, expanding myself beyond what I can physically touch. Then returning to my human body, residing in my heart, fully activated, fully feeling rivers of tears at the same time as ecstatic electricity. Thank you Katie Holland. Truly beautiful'

'This weekend I joined a group of facilitators to deepen and explore our practice. It was truly magical to experience, facilitate and witness such deep release through the Inner Dance process. It was humbling to receive a healing for long stored dis-ease in the body. Many years of misdiagnosed coeliac disease leading to sickness and nausea and gut pain. These sensations were experienced in the session and released leaving me lighter and freer than before. I have been free of symptoms for longer than I was ill but the trauma stays in the body and we need to find a way to release it safely. So grateful to have been gifted the experience and more so for the lightness and joy I feel following that release. I cannot promise that Inner Dance will bring you similar experiences but I have to trust the process and the healing comes in it’s own time's'

 

'Hi all, I hope you are all feeling safe and grounded.

I felt that I want to give a little feedback on the last days since our weekend. Like Katie said some feelings and also situations showed up really quick and I am still amazed how differently I handled them. I was handling them without getting to involved, which is kind of new to me. Another wonderful thing is that I still feel way more connected and safe. I can make a strong connection through my root, sacral, thymus and crown whenever I want. Allover I feel like I have a very different standing in my life now, way more confident in what I do and less worried. 

That's what I experienced so far and wanted to share'

'Those situations came up like "so..how will you handle me now? And it was so amazing and made me so happy how I could take care of it, but stay totally out of drama at the same time'

 

'Dear Katie, thank you so much for this amazing lightful journey you just led us through! What a powerful tool to reconnect to your Self, to heal, open your heart and share your light! And a great reminder that we are all sisters and brothers from one family.

Within my own belly dance practice I strive to feel all the energies more consciously and to make it a meditation, a spiritual practice. Thus I am very interested in your faciliator programme.

Much much love to you from Wuppertal, Germany'

"Huney thank you from the bottom of my soul and the roots of my ancestors... Really powerful tonight. I had just moved some internal stuff and was looking at courses to help weave my new path and then alchemy happened in the form of your dance journey. I absolutely love working with you. Looking forward to more in the future'

 

'SOOOOO much grattitude. gonna go and roll in the grass now!'

 

 

'Amazing Katie - I said to ancestors "we've got this'

3.jpg

'Wow! Well Katie you said it would be a transformational journey and I did believe you but I didn't realise it would happen SO quickly! Emotions arose this morning to be looked at and faced, in order to get to the root of the problem and lo and behold it was linked to my root chakra! Powerful, POWERFUL stuff!! And that's only after day 1! I just wanted to thank you and the rest of the practitioners for doing this, and Cassandra for inviting me. Looking forward to the next 20 days and whatever they may bring! With gratitude and love xxxx'

 

'Wow Katie, that was amazing! I thought I’d do this today to deepen the work with my Sacral chakra as part of your 21 day course and I’m so glad

I did. Surprised indeed! There was a lot of animalistic, raw energy that came out at one point, that I hadn’t been expecting as I’m normally a fairly calm person. It felt amazing to call into my womb space all my dreams and desires, many I am already working on but it felt like this session gave them a supercharge and extra confidence that I CAN do it! I can’t explain all the emotions, but as you said (and as I’m experiencing with your course) they come along in different ways on different days. What a beautiful clearing and wonderful process, I welcome it all. THANK YOU!'

'A friend gave me some distance reiki on Sunday and we both felt a LOT of heat around my sacral chakra the whole way through so I think the work had already started before I consciously knew it if that makes sense? Anyway, I am absolutely LOVING the course; these women are amazing, you can see how confident and empowered they are and how they are really 'with' us and holding space for us, that they have lived and breathed and explored the dance in order to facilitate. You have created something really special, and I hope you don't get bored of being thanked because I feel like I'll be saying it again and again! Thank you Katie, a truly special journey (and I can't believe it's only from half an hour a day!) xx'

 

'Love it! And the course offering this month is rocking my world! I’m not the “fan girl/groupie” type, but damn you’re an inspiration. Inspiring in a grounded, lived it, badass, nitty gritty, real-deal, priestess warrior kinda way. Thank you for living deep into your self and sharing the beautiful range of your soul with others. Rare, refreshing, brave, much needed, and so so very appreciated'

'I am finding that I am becoming... Becoming more the authentic me and I absolutely love it, reconnecting with my essential self and I can see her when I was a child and I can see that she wasn't lost just covered over with stuff n gunge that doesn't belong to her /me. I am disentangling from it. Such a powerful process. I love it!'
 

'Last night I had the dreams from hell.

Such beautiful movements and music yet I must have been working into and through some serious shit underneath. Just shows how deep and powerful this all is. So now I am taking myself back to our time together in Bulgaria Katie. You had taken us into and through some really dark places, we were all emotionally ragged. Then you guided us into couples.

We were holding each other really close and in a nurturing, enveloping loving way. She whispered such mothering loving woman heart to heart words of comfort. All facilitated by Katie’s guiding journey.

They were beautiful moments. I would recommend anyone to take that journey with Katie. It’s a rocky path but so worth it. Pheeewww!'

'After three days of throat-chakra, giving voice to our truth, I was singing in the shower. I heard myself sing: I’m a healing light and it gave me shivers.

I made it a mantra:

 

I’m a healing light

 

I’m a healing light

 

I’m a healing light, a healing light for you

 

A day later, when I was walking in the woods, I started singing and adjusting it for each chakra.

 

I ground my healing light

 

I create with my healing light

 

I shine my healing light

 

I love my healing light

 

I sing my healing light

 

I sense my healing light

 

I honor my healing light

 

Singing this mantra makes me so happy and helps me anchor my truth at every level. And it makes me experience this amazing dance course again and again! Thank you all for this amazing journey!'

'Katie, thank you so much to you and the facilitators for such an amazing journey, it was so powerful to dance with everyone at the one time. I've spiralled into an old wound interestingly, just yesterday. And I saw it with a whole new perspective. Through eyes of deeper wisdom and truth. My Menstrual cycle practices, and movement therapy help empower this, and I also feel that the course had awakened me all the more to wiser, raw and primal knowing.Thank you so much, to you and all the facilitators. Your work is magic!'

'Recalling ancient and forgotten dance my body feels free and connected to Earth and mysteries. Thanks a lot'

 

'Oh My Goddess! I was thinking of sitting on the chair but your energy pulled me and I finished the whole session dancing'

 

 

'Thank you !! It was so soft and so sensual ! Being able to give real space for body to express is amazing'

 

 

'Great way to connect with my bodywisdom'

'Never done awakened bellydance before - wow - amazing, so powerful - would love to do more. I came to the session with a headache and it cleared within minutes of us starting the breathing/movements. Lots of emotions coming up -  thank you so much'

 

'I don't think I can ever leave you now. Feels like, Found you'

 

 

'Dear Katie Holland and all you wonderful AwBd facilitators - I wanted to write a HUGE thank you and send masses of gratitude and love to you Katie Holland for deciding to gift this to us, and for each and every facilitator for offering such unique and special representation of the Chakras through every powerful dance and experience. 

Even from the first few days I could feel how exceptionally powerful this program would be, and I've been processing the end result of the 21 course these past few days, observing and repeating some of the dances that I particularly resonated with and those that I needed to revisit. I've absolutely loved the whole process, and it has made my April in lockdown so special and memorable and a welcome relief from what is happening in the world. I'll be joining you all again in May and I'm sharing with my friends. Thank you all for showing up and being so courageous and inspiring. I saw my Higher Self as a Priestess in Indigo jewelled dress - I have never met 'her' before and it's a revelation - absolutely amazing. thank you for opening that up'

'Great discussion! It was nice to deepen my intellectual knowledge about all the things I’ve been feeling, experiencing, and knowing through my body during the Awakened Bellydance free online sessions. FWIW, I’ve rarely come across someone who is a better example of the notion ‘embodiment’ than Katie Holland. Embodiment that is powerful, divine, and mystical, while also being grounded, rooted, and wise. Embodiment so strong, that even across the globe, it tugs at and literally awakens these qualities within me. If you’ve never danced with Katie, you are totally missing out! That you can dance at home during a quarantine for no cost is a true gift beyond measure. I wished someone would have introduced me to Katie years ago. So this is my public service announcement. Katie Holland well done and hugs!'

 

'Oh I’m so sorry I panicked you I may have come off too strong there, but I’ve just had this extremely strong pull to attend and needing to be there from start to finish that this fire in me was like I need to fight for this, you’re in the right place right time and I was filled with that same energy but more intense when I joined the video.I literally created Facebook for this event!'

'This was my first time hearing Katie Holland and I want more! This is the dance knowledge I’ve been seeking. Thank you so much for this offering!'

 

'I have so much more self confidence after doing the first 21 day course. Thank you and all the other wonderful facilitators - and the amazing connection with fellow dancers'

 

'Yes! I'm getting more and more of those now.

 I sponged the background of this painting last week and I didn't know what it was going to be for or why it had two sections; After tonight's session I felt drawn to paint and initially thought of writing 'Yes I Can' and then realised 'We all CAN' is much more in line with what keeps coming to mind. Being in a group of such lovely people, hearing stories, experiencing the beautiful creations of music and art work and hearing how everyone is growing and coming into their power is inspirational. 'Stand on the shoulders of giants' and together we shall rise. Thank you ... AGAIN'

'I think today is the first time I've ever really BELIEVED that we ALL can and I am part of that group. Expressing it through painting has made it concrete, tangible, recorded. It's now on my wall so that even on days of doubt (because, let's face it, we all have those!) I can look at it and know that once I believed...no...I KNEW I was part of the whole (the all) and it will help me to remember that we all can'

 

'It is amazing doing the 21days for the second time because I feel all the chakras balancing and beginning to work in alignment with each other! The I can came up when dancing the sacral chakra but there's definitely a lot of solar plexus coming in and it's linked to the safety and security of my root. I can't wait to see what comes up with the rest of the course!'

 

'This is the dance knowledge I've been seeking. Thank you so much for this offering!'

'I took this pic a few days ago after crying my way through an @awakenedbellydance class (which has been the most deliciously potent lockdown medicine), taking a moment, and felt the sun streaming through the window. Wasn’t planning to share this pic with anyone, and just a few short weeks ago I wouldn’t have dreamed of sharing a selfie here, let alone one that feels as raw as this. But, I’m in another beautiful container of brave and inspiring women, and this week we are sharing our shame, and working through our beliefs that it’s not safe to be seen. One of my stories of shame, which is an obvious one in the physical sense, although one I’ve tried to keep hidden, is that I’ve been ashamed to smile for the last 7.5 years, since I was vaccine injured and experienced rapid and severe bone loss in my jaw, causing my teeth to loosen and drift. It’s been a dark journey at times, having been told I would be lucky to have any of my own teeth left in 10 years time. You can imagine how scary that was, teeth falling out literally being the stuff of nightmares. Thankfully I already had a bit of background in holistic health at that point, and I’ve been fortunate that some of the practices I turned to, like the Ayurvedic practice of oil pulling, were so beneficial and healing that the condition stabilised, I was discharged from the dental hospital and am now receiving orthodontic treatment, which I was initially told wouldn’t be possible. I haven’t smiled with my mouth open in a photo for that same amount of time!

So I’m showing up today and sharing this as part of a stretch in visibility, while voicing my shame.

 

In gratitude for this moment in time where the things I’m passionate about - holistic health, health freedom, personal growth and the healing art of belly dance have all come together. Dancing with the shadows, into the light'

'Soldaki fotoğrafım bugünden, sağdaki 21 gün öncesinden. Oradan bakıldığında siz bir fark görüyor musunuz bilmiyorum ama bende harika değişimler var 21 gün önce sevgili Katie Holland davetiyle Awakened Belly Dance çalışmasına katıldım. Ne zamandır bedenim dans etmek istiyordu, özgürce akışın içerisinde olmak fikri çok tatlı geldi bu herşeyin değişip dönüştüğü zamanda.
Tabi başıma geleceklerden habersizdim ben bu çalışmayı dans edicez öyle takılıcaz diye düşünürken, çok çok ötesi çıktı karşıma 
21 günün her 3 gününde bir çakrayla çalıştık, Kök'ten başlayıp Tac'a kadar ve her gün Katie ile yol arkadaşı olan birbirinden tatlı kadınlar yaptırdı çalışmayı, dünyanın farklı ülkelerinden.
Her biri bir Tanrıçaydı, sonsuz teşekkürler her birine Tabi acayip dönüşümler ve sallanmalarla birlikte her gün bir anlayış geldi derinlerden Ve tabi aynı grupta birbirimizi görmesek de birlikte dans ettiğim tüm Tanrıça kadınlar, Mısırdan, İskoçya'dan, Fransa'dan hepsine yürekten teşekkürler bu enerji alanını birlikte tutmak müthiş bir deneyimdi Ve Katie, nasıl bir kadın anlatmak zor, sanki ekrandan gözümün içini, kalbimin derinliklerini görüyordu (Çalışmalar FB Live'dan bu arada) Dansla birlikte ihtiyacım olan bağlantı, sevgi ve destek de geliyordu 
İyi haber, Katie sanırım Ekim ayında eğitim için Türkiye'de olacak, buluşmak için çok coşkuluyum. Bu arada neymiş bu Awakened Belly Dance, kimmiş bu Katie Holland derseniz Facebook'ta sayfasını takip edin, kendi hikayesini geçtiği yolları da detaylı anlatıyor ve bu çalışmanın içeriğini de Gelişmelerden haberdar edeceğim'

'My photo on the left is from today, on the right 21 days ago. I don't know if you see a difference from there, but I have some great changes. 21 days ago, I participated in the amazing belly dance study at the invitation of dear Katie. How long my body wanted to dance, the idea of being in the flow was so sweet when everything changed. Of course, I didn't know what would happen to me when I thought we were going to dance this work, it came out so much more. Every 3 days of 21 days, we worked with a knife, starting from the root to crown, and every day, sweet women who are friends with Katie made to work, from different countries of the world. Each of them was a God, endless thanks to each of them of course, with strange transformation and shaking, every day with strange changes and of course, all the queen women I dance with, from Egypt, from Egypt, France. Thank you all from my heart it was an amazing experience to keep this energy field together. And Katie, what kind of woman is hard to tell, as if she could see inside my eyes, deep in my heart (works from fb live) with the dance, love and support I needed. Good news, Katie will be in turkey for training in October, I'm so excited to meet up. By the way, what is this amazing belly dance, who is this?'

'I’ve just completed the most incredible 21 day Awakened Bellydance journey with Katie Holland @awakenedbellydance and her facilitators.. so timely for casting off the old restrictions and finding our voices collectively and individually.. a massive thank you to all those women... and to us. We are all amazing and blossoming. I’ve been talking about the Witch wound for some time, how women are held back by the collective consciousness, the fear of being persecuted for speaking our truth.. time to cast that off, it doesn’t need to control us anymore. The 21 days has been an important part of my personal journey. A huge thank you. #awakenedbellydance'
 

'I danced the final crown chakra session along with all of you beautiful goddesses.
It truly has been a great experience. I loved the final session. The constant wave of movements, the helix and inter twining and flowing.
All I can say is it felt, or allowed me to feel, I was a golden thread of pure silk, and I, along with the hundreds of other spirits dancing and moving either together, or at another time...Were woven, emerged together to create the most exquisite golden shimmering tapestry.
A tapestry of great beauty, strengths, dreams, laughter, tears and love. How lovely to be a single threat amongst many single threads, to transform into a tapestry of loving souls. Thank you to all. Maybe this is the Alchemy...'

'Awakened Bellydance - This is such a wonderful course and I’d recommend it to everyone wanting to create balance in their life, share a deep spirituality with like-minded souls and become part of a wonderful universal tribe'

'I feel really honoured and blessed that through this time of 'lock down' I have been enabled to use it as a time of inward journeying. First by being a part of the AWBD online community - which lead me into approaching Katie Holland to do these 7 1-1 intensive sessions. Best decision I have made for myself in a long time. In these sessions I have felt really held by Katie whilst being empowered to fully become myself. They have been truly amazing and so intense in a way that has for the first time in my life I can fully see me in all my beauty and inner strength. If anyone reading this is contemplating taking up these sessions my response to you would be seize the opportunity for your soul as I have found my life has grown beyond anything I could guess. Such a small investment for such huge and golden rewards'

'Thanks so much to all the wonderful facilitators for this 42 day process. The first process gave me alot of clarity on my path and what internal and external dynamics and patterns were holding me back.
The second process was more energetically awakening and showed me very clearly what energy centres I needed to work on moving forward. I also experienced some beautiful awakenings of the heart centre, that poured through so powerfully again in the crown session. Honestly, I was overwhelmed for a few days afterwards and I'm very conscious of grounding the heightened awareness I have gained from the process, in the last few days. In nature, its beautiful...so much light energy pouring through and expanding. And my awareness can also get very shifted when I burrow back in to 4 walls/ screen energy! I know its there though, and I feel the power and resonance with the process. Can't thank you all enough. You've been amazing to facilitate this group through a challenging time and I have really appreciated the community feeling, the interaction, the holding hands in the fire circles, dancing together, has been a such a blessing. Huge thanks to everyone'

'I started it (the online course) and found it one of the most powerful healing modalities I have ever come across. I am a yoga teacher, reiki master and psychologist so I have encountered healing from a lot of different angles and they all have their right and are ideally combined. What I was missing though was some kind of a female, deeply feminine approach. Something that would allow me to express all my layers and archetypes and something that would just feel right. I was not expecting to find it in that course but I did. The release, the profound healing of ancestral traumas is really beyond what I thought was possible and I am just in for 10 days now. Within the very first session I was in love with it. I was able to go for it completely because the container felt so safe'
