"Kathryn's daily emails are always helpful and inspiring. There is something in the wisdom it contains that has shaken me to my core; resonated so deeply that I feel broken apart and ready to be made new. I didn’t know that this is what I had hoped might happen during Immersion, indeed, had no idea of what might happen during Immersion. That it has, is a profound gift." - Charle Malycon, former Immersion student
