Her journey with the Love Smart Cards gives her hope that any parent/child or romantic relationship, can access and maintain a thriving and everlasting love in which freedom and security are honored and held in the balance.
"This experience with Katrina really touched the heart, in a calm and gentle way. It's rare to see someone create a space that allows sharing, in a respectful and empathetic way, while simultaneously being playful. It's rare, yet it did happen. She helped me be ME for this short moment in time. Thank you Katrina, for the time, knowledge and your presence - it was the highlight of my week, for sure. I look forward to any initiatives related to your Heart Medicine workshop :-)" - Lukazs
