I hold sacred space for beings who are ready to step into the fullness of their power and reclaim their essential wild-self, reconnect with nature and community, live their highest joy, open to love, celebrate their life and give their precious gifts to the world.
Imagine being wrapped in warm blankets, rocked in the womb of the Mother Earth, sung to, prayed over, smudged with sacred smoke from medicine trees, covered with aromatic healing plants, tended to by the healing spirits, whispered to by fairies, blessed by the ancestors, journeyed home, drummed back to your own sweet-self, brushed by bird’s wings, massaged with hot rocks and blessed by the angels while you have your feet anointed with healing oils. That is what you have to look forward to!

About Katie’s Maya Teacher
Miss Beatrice was born on January 8th, 1948 in the village of Santa Familia, Belize where she lived all of her life.
She was a Yucateca Maya woman whose family migrated to Belize from The Yucatan region of Mexico during the caste war in the late 1800’s. Miss Beatrice was born in the caul or amniotic sac which in her culture is the sign of a seer.
Even as a young girl she was very much in touch with the spiritual world and very interested in the healing plants her father, a curandero and spiritual leader in the village, used in his healing practice. Her Grandmother and her mother were traditional midwives from whom she learned herbal remedies and massage techniques.
Later in her life she became a village healer herself relieving the physical, emotional and spiritual aches and pains in the many who came to seek her help. Miss Beatrice also taught her Maya healing ways to fortunate students all over the world, including Katie Silva.
What women say about their experience.
From the first moment I encountered Katie I knew that she was a unique healer and her gifts, wisdom, and insight would aid my own journey significantly. Through our personal healing sessions together and her workshops I attended, I have learned so much more about who I truly am as a human and what I want to be as a woman. She has helped to open doors of perception for me that I didn’t even realize existed and changed my awareness landscape permanently.Manijeh Baxter – Lyle, Washington
Katie’s prenatal sessions fill me so completely with deep relaxation and release while giving me an opportunity to truly connect with my growing baby as well as my own feelings and intuitions. My pregnant belly craves her uterine massages and my thinking self can relax in the knowledge that I am setting the perfect stage for an ecstatic, peaceful birth. I was deeply honored to be given a Maya Ix Chel birthing ceremony led by Katie and it was truly a magical experience. My heart was so completely filled with deep love and sisterhood on a level that our current culture would like us to believe doesn’t exist. I am so grateful to her for keeping the path to “wild woman” open for all of us out there that are seeking to follow it.Manijeh Baxter- Lyle, Washington
Over the last few months of receiving abdominal massage from Katie, I have experienced deep healing on the physical, emotional, and spiritual planes. Katie is compassionate as well as comforting and I always look forward to sessions with her. I believe reconnecting with the sacred womb is one of the most healing things a woman can do for herself and the earth at this time.Amara Dreamer – Bend, Oregon
Attending one of Katie Silva’s ceremonies and/or women’s workshops is like wrapping yourself in a warm cozy blanket; nurturing, safe, and deeply satisfying. She holds space and guides from a place of deep intuitive connection with Spirit. Each time I’ve been in circle with Katie I’ve felt incredibly supported and loved. Connecting with the feminine divine and my own deep self in this space has allowed me to open up spaces in my mind, body, psyche and emotions in ways that I didn’t even know was possible and receive gifts of awareness, vision, and intuition that have completely changed my way of being and engaging in the world.Karen Murphy – Hood River, Oregon
Katie is so wonderful at what she does. In my time working with her I have come to know my body more intimately and the pain that I had experienced before my periods has almost completely left. Katie has also helped me find pieces of my self that have been in hiding and bring them back into the present. I honestly feel excited to return and work with her every time. I feel safe, empowered and cared for. I recommend working with Katie if you are on a journey into wholeness, she has the skills to help guide this on many different levels. She is a gift.Sara Mains – 5Rhythms Dance Teacher, White Salmon, WA
