Katherine Jansen-Byrkit is Licensed Professional Counselor with 17 years in private practice offering holistic psychotherapy. Last year, Katherine published her book, River to Ocean: Living in the Flow of Wakefulness. Her book reflects the human voyage of finding your way to an awakened self. As with a river that traverses steep mountains and winding valleys, our inner and outer worlds can be encumbered by a lack of connection to ourselves, old beliefs, an anxious mind. Each and all of these can interfere with living our our most authentic and loving life. In our conversation, Katherine offers insights and practices on how to live a life of wakefulness.
