Meet Kate Schofield

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kate Schofield.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I began my own self- healing journey about ten years ago when I decided to get off medication for anxiety and depression. I’d spent years medicated and came to a point where I felt completely cut off from my creative energy and passion for life and wanted to get to the source of my problems. I began dabbling with holistic modalities like Reiki then incorporated meditation. I found a lot of relief, but it was definitely a bumpy road relearning my new world without medicine. After about five years, I decided to become a Reiki Practitioner, then overtime a Reiki Master. In the time of my Reiki Practice, I began incorporating sound into the work. Eventually, I stopped working with the Reiki system and decided Sound Healing and Meditation were the most helpful for myself and the self-healing of my clients. I use crystal sound bowls, my voice and other acoustic instruments to create spaces for people to connect to their awareness, engage the Parasympathetic Nervous System and calm anxiety. I’m also beginning to teach others how to use their own voice as a sound healing tool. In my opinion, the voice is the most powerful sound healing tool there is.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It definitely has not been a smooth ride! Self-Healing is messy, beautiful, not easy, but worth it. Its not Yoga Bowls, Crystals, High vibes. It’s facing all the vibes and embracing our darkness. It’s unlearning all the label’s roles and identities we cling and hold onto so tightly to make us feel safe. For me to be able to hold space for others while they awaken their own inner healer, I had to that experience it all myself.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am a sound healer and meditation teacher. I use crystal sound bowls, the voice, and other acoustic instruments to create space for people 1:1 and large groups to connect to awareness, tap into their truest selves, and calm anxiety.

I am most proud of the new work that I’ve been creating around the voice. I believe the voice is the most powerful sound healing tool there is. My intention is to shift the conditioned view of the voice as a tool for performance, to a tool for transformation. I’ve created practices and technics, along with ancient techniques that use sound as a way to become aware of awareness itself. Activating the facility of the witness, allowing the practitioner to let go of the egoic mind, release tension, activate The parasympathetic Nervous System and overtime connect the practitioner to their trust self.

What were you like growing up?
It’s really no surprise that my sound healing work involves the voice because as a child, I grew up singing classical music. I am dyslexic, school was very difficult, and singing classical music was my refuge. I dedicated all my time and energy into it, it gave me the confidence I needed. I was playful, Whitt’s and lived to make others laugh, secretly I wanted to be a standup comedian because nothing felt better than laughter. My self-deprecation game was strong and is something I still use to make spiritually light and fun.
