Kate on Emotional Wellness

“It is time to cultivate and grow the skills we need to connect in more meaningful ways. I believe we are only at the beginning of our understanding of how our nervous systems, body’s, minds and emotions work together. This is going to be an ongoing place of discovery for us all. What I can say is, when you cultivate a deeper awareness of your feeling body and your emotions, along with the mental understanding of why you are making certain choices you find a freedom and an ease in life which is otherwise out of reach. “

Introducing Our New Initiative: The Feeling Creatures Project

I am excited and delighted to share our newest addition to Explorare, our Feeling Creatures Project, which is a community based project collaboration currently with six people from KZN, South Africa.

"This project is a combination of two elements. The first is to support people to develop emotional wellness and connection skills and the second is my commitment to being part of the change I want to see  in South Africa."


How it works: As a team we create, market and sell the Feeling Creatures around the world. This meets the two objectives of the project to grow awareness of the importance of feelings and paying attention to our emotions. And to support fellow South Africans to generate an income for themselves.


How you can help: We raise funds to get each woman their starters kits, learn about the many ways you can help us grow this exciting new initiative.
