Katherine has been actively involved in the metaphysical arena for over 20 years. She has focused her attention on private readings for her international clientele and is actively involved in mainstreaming metaphysics. With her business background she plans to break the crystal ball stereotype and replace it with practical advice that can be used in the real world!
Katherine teaches Astrology and Tarot at local colleges in Phoenix and at her home. She has six years experience working with an elite team of psychics and police departments to find missing people.
Katherine had her own successful radio show called “Soul Guidance” where she provided readings for callers. She is a contributing writer to “One Planet Magazine” and a co-contributor to the book “Happiness Awaits You” where she wrote her true life story about finding joy in her career.
Recognizing the rumblings of planetary changes in the last several years, and the affect these changes have on people, Katherine realized there is a need to provide people with an avenue to find reputable practitioners to assist them through the changes. Her answer: she created The Conscious Community in early 2010 to guide clientele to authentic, ethical practitioners.
What is the purpose of The Conscious Community?
To connect seekers with quality teachers that will assist them on their unique path!
The Conscious Community simplifies the process that people are faced with when seeking metaphysical experts. We live in a fast paced, ever changing environment. Many people have lost their careers and their homes; the stable foundation they once based their lives on. People are confused and don’t know where to turn for help. Traditional therapies may help in some areas but not all. Often times, these people must reinvent themselves, remove blocks to their success and build their feelings of worthiness. They need a beacon of light; The Conscious Community is that beacon of light! The website offers a safe and easy way to find help. We have acupuncturists, astrologers, feng shui consultants, intuitive life coaches, massage therapists and many more talented professionals.
Additionally, The Conscious Community has created a friendly and supportive environment for our member practitioners to network in and support each others growth.
How do you qualify the practitioners on the site?
The Conscious Community has strict guidelines that must be adhered to. These guidelines include areas such as the number of years in business; testimonials from clients and peers, current licensing (when necessary) and a proven reputation for integrity. The Conscious Community distinguishes itself from a typical chamber or networking group where anyone can become a member by simply writing a check for yearly dues.
Most of our members belong to the group because they were invited to join. The Core Members and I research the individuals thoroughly before deciding as a team if a practitioner will be included in the directory. Being a member of The Conscious Community is like having a “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval!” but for Holistic Practitioners. People can feel confident choosing a practitioner from our website knowing that the background work has already been done for them.
What has been your biggest challenge in starting up The Conscious Community?
Our SEO is working well in finding seekers-our challenge is in finding the practitioners.
One very big challenge has been to find practitioners who are willing to support and promote others in their field. Many people operate under the old belief that if you support others you take away from yourself. We have found the opposite to be true. When we provide support and promotion for others in our field, our business base grows, our reputation blooms, The Conscious Community grows and our ability to provide a valuable service strengthens!
What are yourmost useful marketing tools?
I am so passionate about this business that my enthusiasm is contagious! My networking experience is a big plus. Each of the Core Members brings their unique marketing styles into the mix as well. Word of mouth and link exchanges are used most often. Our Face book Group presence has also been a great tool for keeping people up to date on events.
Look into the future (no pun in intended) where do you see the Conscious Community in five years?
I see great success! I see a paradigm shift in the world. We have our fingertip on the pulse of Consciousness. We will be the primary connection of seekers to practitioners! The goal of The Conscious Community is to familiarize Arizonans with our services then to expand from there. We visualize a global community!
We are growing; we are creating The Conscious Community!
