Katherine Boyer, M.A., is an author, speaker, and shamanic practitioner. Her master’s degree is in counseling psychology from Lewis and Clark College, with a bachelor’s degree from Wellesley College. She is versed in the methodology of ACOA, and has studied spiritual traditions ranging from Lakota Sioux sweat lodges to kundalini yoga. Yet mostly she has learned much within the context of family, being a parent, daughter, wife, sister, grandmother, an elder. Ms. Boyer is a householder. A householder is one who holds space in the home for the family. A family can be one individual or many, who are connected by blood or love, who live together. The family has been her center. Within the center of her family she has been clearing her own auric family energy field, so that any old, unneeded thought forms are not passed down to her children or onto the next generation.
Katherine has lived within the circle of a family, raising four children with her husband, now watching grandchildren grow. Although she has held various jobs and counseled individuals and couples, her main duties have always been as a householder: teaching, nurturing, enlightening the next generation.
