Continuing my quest to help heal womynkind and earth mother heal by creating sacred space, thank you for letting me be of service to you.
Let’s come together and bond..it’s a part of our her-story. Without our sense of ourselves as sisters–companions and not competitors we cannot be transformed into a Bonded human community. Thanks again for allowing me to share some of the wisdom that I have learned on my journey.

They say you never forget your first love, and for me that was photography. Growing up an only child, I often relied upon it as a surrogate sibling. Starting with the Kodak Instamatic 110 I received in the second grade, the camera lens soon became the focal point for my imagination. Teaching me how to appreciate the little things in life that too many often take for granted.
Yet it was an entirely different passion that led me to the Arizona desert in 2001; to deepen my understanding and spiritual connection with reptiles.
“If you talk to the animals, they will talk with you, and you will know
each other. If you do not talk to them, you will not know them, and
what you do not know you will fear. What one fears, one destroys.”
~ Chief Dan George
Once here, I found there was even more to like about the Southwest than I had imagined. This in turn has led me to explore new creative possibilities, such as film and mixed media art, while continuing to grow as a photographer and writer.
This past summer marked my 17th year as an Arizona resident. When I decided to take a chance, and make the Southwest my new home. During this time, I’ve experienced a tremendous amount of transformation and growth, and look forward to more in years to come!
Kathy became interested in Feng Shui several years after hearing a presentation by Rosanne Rusnock. Rosanne (Ro) has now become her mentor and Feng Shui teacher. When Kathy first heard about Feng Shui, it resonated deeply with her and she was “hungry” for any information she could glean on the subject. She attended every workshop that became available.
She became a Certified Feng Shui Practitioner of Essential Feng Shui in 2016.
Kathy began her company, “Aloha Feng Shui”, soon after receiving her certification. She loves Hawaii and goes there as often as possible. Each time she travels there, she vows to bring back the love, (aloha), and spread it to everyone she encounters. So now, she loves to add special aloha to every consultation she does.
Kathy does both residential and business consultations. It has become her passion to find out what her clients’ needs and intentions are and then utilize the tools and techniques of Feng Shui to help them achieve their goals and have optimal success, happiness, prosperity, and health.
Her clients come to understand that cluttered space can cause many maladies in many areas of our lives, and by using these fun techniques of Feng shui, we can allow the Ch’i (energy) to flow freely in our spaces, thereby allowing optimal results in every area of our lives.
Kathy is also a Reiki Master, a ukulele player and teacher, a singer and hula dancer.
Spiritual Readings available during the conference for an additional charge:
Paula Hannasch is a Spiritual Teacher and Coach. She assists her clients in connecting with Spirit and giving them the tools and support they need to go from break-down to break-through
The Spiritual Reading is designed as a focused one on one session assisting you in living powerfully.
We all have help from the ‘other side’, from those in the non-physical. This is our Spiritual Team that is, and has always been, with us from birth. We were born with a connection to Spirit. We are Spirit living in a physical body. That being said, there are times when it is a great benefit to be able to connect with someone that understands Spirit and how Spirit works so they can tune in and assist you in receiving and understanding the messages coming to you in your life. This can also be a great assist to you in making sense of what is happening at this time in your life.
The Reading typically provides positive insight and clarity into your life in a way that assists you in powerfully moving forward. A Reading may also provide the opportunity of being able to connect you to loved ones that have crossed over to the non-physical. Our loved ones many times continue to assist us after they pass into the non-physical and having a connection with them can often times bring peace and the ability to move forward in areas you may otherwise feel ‘stuck’. The Primary emphasis of any reading is to allow clarity and insight to come forth.
Paula is a wife, mom, daughter, friend, Life Coach, Medium, and above all else a Woman creating a life she loves. She lives in beautiful Goodyear Arizona with her husband, Joe, and their grown children in the beauty of the southwest desert.
