Kathy Jakielski


I am a rocket scientist who followed H. Thurman's directive that "the world needs more people who have come alive". Ditched the constant pursuit of gold stars and traded in doing for being. Followed my passion to inspire others to heal, explore the big picture & listen to their bodies in the dynamic stillness of craniosacral therapy & energy healing. Curiosities that Seem to be True: Bodies never lie. Life is a dance of the head and the heart. When we are healed, we are not healed alone. We are star stuff harvesting star light. Unarmed truth has the final say in reality. Specialities: compassion, connection, courage Things that I would have on a desert island: bacon & green juice, someone who's really good at telling jokes, sunscreen, chocolate ganache cake, good tunes Best decision ever: Moving to Seattle to watch my nieces grow up

What draws you to the STIA conference?

I've always been interested in and drawn to the interplay of society & technology and the underlying systems that we design to organize and answer life's big questions. Drawn to this conference to connect with like-minded folks across disciplines & life experiences.

What are you hoping to experience?

Connection. Authentic dialogue. A-ha moments. Serendipity.

What are you most passionate about?

Helping people listen to their bodies to heal, thrive and embody their unique brilliance. Seeing the spark in people's eyes when they are inspired to create a new reality for themselves.

How do you see transformation occurring from this conference?

I'm open to anything. Transformation has a way of working unexpectedly and in grander ways than I can even imagine.

What’s your bigger vision?

Bring craniosacral therapy and traditional energy medicine to the everyday experience of people for world peace. When we heal our individual wounds we heal our collective wounds. When we have self-compassion, we can have compassion for others. Reflect light & interconnectedness at every moment. Provide a space in the heart of cities nationwide for people to come together privately or collectively during times of major life transformation to heal, embrace creativity & engage heart consciousness.

What needs to happen for you to evaluate this STIA+ experience as a success?

I have no doubt that it will be a success.
