The Heroine’s Journey of Katie Kozlowski

What is the best thing that I love about my work? I love that I get to help others find peace as they piece together all the parts of themselves that they used to think were wrong or out of place. I spent so much of my life feeling broken and sad, I find great joy in letting people know there is another way to do things where you don’t have to suffer or feel heartbroken like that.
What is my idea of perfect happiness? I don’t know if I believe in “perfect happiness” because that might sound like you never have a challenge in your life. But to me, happiness is all about living in the moment and enjoying what you’ve been given as it comes. Happiness is something you have access to no matter who you are or where you are, and that to me is the perfectness of it all. 
What is my greatest fear? I’ve worked very hard on fear in my life, and my greatest fear has always been that if I tell people who I really am and what I know, that they will hate me for it.  I’ve never wanted to hurt anyone in my life and so I fear that by being honest and truthful, I might cause someone else pain. 
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? I don’t love the word deplore, but I’d say I really don’t love it when I’m impatient.  When I’m impatient I change things around and that means I’m giving up or not giving myself enough time.  That really drives me nuts. 
Which living persons in my profession do i most admire? I admire many people but I have great respect for people like Ellen Degeneres who simply bring joy by being who they and are humble and authentic. She doesn’t try to be anything but herself, and that inspires me to no end. If I can be even a little like Ellen, then I’m a happy woman! 
What is my greatest extravagance? So far in my life, I have shied away from extravagance in many ways, but I have always gone full out when it comes to my personal  development and training. I have spent over $80,000 on my education and healing and that is because I wanted the best of the best and I got it.  That is one place where I will pay top dollar and really allow myself the full experience. 
On what occasion would I lie? I don’t really lie very well. It’s not my strongest suit. My whole life I just can’t lie because even when I do, ten minutes later I spill the beans. I’m a truth teller through and through. 
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? I dislike that it can be manipulated or used a way to scare people. I would never threaten anyone or tell them if they don’t do XYZ they will be doomed, but there are some people out there who do that, and so it’s hard to stay out of that in order to get sales.  
When and where was I the happiest, in my work? I am the happiest when I have clients who are healing. My whole life it’s been like that. If you are having positive shifts, I am delighted. And I look forward to when I have a room FULL of people having the same experiences. 
If I could, what would I change about myself? I love myself but I’d love it if I was a little more pragmatic and systemic. I am a born creator, so I can churn out programs and content all day long, but the systems part of it is where I struggle.  If I could, I’d be more of that and a little less like a mad scientist, but that’s part of my charm. 
What is my greatest achievement in work? So far, I’ve helped many people overcome things like trauma, chronic illness, addiction, depression and abusive relationships. I’d say that’s a huge achievement and I look forward to doing more of it. 
Where would I most like to live? Simple. By the sea.  I’d like to live by the water so I can go for a walk by the ocean every day. 
What is my most treasured possession? When I did my first workshop, I had been eyeing these rosebud beads for gifts. The next day, three of them appeared in the soap dish at the workshop and they were the exact same ones I’d been looking at.  They were definitely a message from the divine that I was on the right path and so I hold them very close to my heart. 
What is my most marked characteristic? People would say it’s my outgoing personality and my warmth. I have this ability to make anyone feel better and that is just due to my nature.  I’m really a ray of sunshine and I am happy to be that way. 
What is my most inspirational location, in my city? The woods. I go to the woods to wander and talk to the trees and nature. If I’m feeling lost, I aways find myself again when I’m there. 
What is my favourite place to eat and drink, in my city? I don’t do a lot of that right now— I mean I eat at home and I guess that’s my favorite place! I used to live in New York, so going out was a daily activity. Now I love to be home and quiet. 
What books influenced my life and how? My first book I ever read that resonated was You Can Heal Your Life because I loved the gorgeous pictures in the copy I found.  After that it was tons of Wayne Dyer. And in college it was the Celestine Prophecy. 
Who are my favorite writers? I’m not sure.  I do love fairy tales and I think my favorite books to read are the classics like Alice In Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz. I love clever teachers like Oscar Wilde and CS Lewis and Charles Dickens. 
You Only Die Once. What music would I listen on my last day? I have a real love of classical music when I’m feeling close to God so something like Mozart’s Requiem or Adagio by James Barbour I suppose. Or I’d just sing myself to sleep. 
Who is my hero or heroine in fiction? I love all my classic heroines like Dorothy and Alice from Alice in Wonderland. They’re like my personal equivalent to say Odysseus or those other great men heroes we have.  
Who are my heroes and heroines in real life? Again, I go back to Ellen as a heroine of mine. Someone who took her life and created something powerful that helps others. Her fame is fuel to make an impact, and that is the kind of person I want to be too. 
Which movie would i recommend to see once in a lifetime? I’d say the movie of your own life that plays upon your death. That sounds morbid, but we should each have our own highlight reel and that’s the film I think we should all see. The one that recounts our own story in it’s glory. 
What role plays art in my life and work? I love art. I think art is an expression of the divine and we can learn so much from it.  And I think art comes in all forms- music, tv, plays, paintings…even good.  I use it as an extension of my own inner expression. 
Who is my greatest fan, sponsor, partner in crime? I would say right now the women who co-wrote the book #SimplyWoman with me. We are a clan of 30 strong and we really do have each other’s backs. https://www.katiekozlowski.com/p/simpywomanbook
Whom would I like to work with in 2018? Obviously I’d love to get to talk with Oprah and tell her what I know. And Ellen! And as I keep asking in my prayers, I want to work with the people out there who want and need what I have to offer. 
Which people in my profession would i love to meet in 2018? Oprah. Ellen. Dr. Lisa Miller from Columbia University. Marisa Peer. Caroline Myss.  All the WOMEN who are doing amazing things to shift consciousness in a bigger way. 
What project, in 2018, am I looking forward to work on? We are about to do a  big rebrand and I’m of course looking forward to that! 
Where can you see me or my work in 2018? You can always find me at www.katiekozlowski.com 
What do the words “Passion Never Retires” mean to me? Passion, like the flame of truth never goes out… 
Which creative heroines should Peter invite to tell their story? Any of the women who co-wrote #SimplyWoman! https://www.katiekozlowski.com/p/simpywomanbook
