I started my Primal Trust journey a little less than 5 months ago and yesterday It hit me how much progress I have made and how much closer I am to living the life I want and deserve.

This past month I have started to really feel a shift in my energy level, I was able to go out for dinner one night and then go eat out again the next day!! Not only I had the energy to do that, but I also wasn’t worried about what could happen, I wasn’t rehearsing the catastrophe scenario.  My husband was so surprised when I told him I wanted to go out as I never wanted to leave the house since being sick, especially to eat.
Also about 1,5 month ago I started walking every morning, I realized it was making a huge impact on my healing especially because Im surrounded with beautiful nature, tired or not, Im going, and yesterday I ran!!! I mean not just a little, I ran 5K! I had not run for about 3 years… and yes, I’m sore today but I feel so grateful and strong and proud of myself but not just for running, but for running while I’m still dealing with symptoms. and for listening to my body meaning not over doing it and stopping when I felt the need to.
This coming Sunday my husband and I will be going to a Spring Training game and I’m really looking forward to being out with people and have a great time connecting.

All of that to say, I’m not even close to be healed (I have autoimmune diseases) but I’m feeling better, and I don’t want to let my illnesses define me! I want to point out that going to live classes regularly on top of doing my daily practices made a huge difference! 


This Regulate Program has helped me build a great tool kit for working with my nervous system discover process. It has also added context to the tools so I am not simply throwing things at my system, but rather have a better sense for what types of tools may be right for me at different times of my process.

I am truly grateful for this education and the chance to share some of what I learn with others. Thank you.

One year ago today, I joined Primal Trust. It has been a year of ups and downs, challenges, struggles and some heartache. But it has also been a year of tremendous growth in my awareness, decrease in my symptoms, and healing in my relationship with my spouse. I can’t thank @Cathleen King enough for her courage, strength and creative genius to start PT, and  @Aaron Matthew King for being an absolutely amazing mentor over the past year. I also want to thank the other mentors, as well as the community whom without their continued encouragement, support and inspiration, I wouldn’t be where I am presently. My heart is full with love and gratitude for all of you.

I wanted to share a win that took me more than 3 decades, and a year of brain retraining, to get to…

I have always been underweight and felt insecure about my body. Eight years ago, this issue was exacerbated when I found out that I had numerous food allergies and sensitivities. I know now, thanks to this program, that it was really just my nervous system in dire need of being regulated. I lost more weight over the first few months of having a restricted diet than what I could afford to lose. I felt like I was a walking bag of bones and I avoided looking in full length mirrors and getting on scales. Thank God, I “accidently found” Primal Trust.

During the first few months of Level One (March 7, 2022 – late spring ’22), I used the tools and was able to re-introduce many of the foods had been triggers for me. By the end of last summer, I had successfully integrated all the foods I used to love and eat into my diet and was doing so with almost no symptoms!  And for the first time in many months, I felt comfortable enough to get on a scale last week. I was elated to discover I have gained 26 pounds in 1 year!! Yay me! I look better! I feel better! I did it! I am so proud and happy that I didn’t quit when I thought I couldn’t keep doing this!

For those of you struggling, hang in there. It is doable. Be patient and give yourself permission to have setbacks and go slow! It is hard, but you are f*cking stronger than you think!

Thank you to everyone for your part, big and small, in my success!

Really thorough and comprehensive platform broken down into easily digestible lessons with both videos and written information. I had learned/seen a lot of what is taught in this program elsewhere but now I understand it because of the way it was taught here.

I am now actually enjoying things I’ve tried before like meditation, yoga, somatics and feeling the benefits. The trauma informed approach of this program is pervasive through all aspects and really appreciated.

I’m really impressed with the weaving of information and slow progression throughout the modules so as to really integrate the knowledge and find what works for me

I have been extremely hypervigilant about the environmental toxins, my symptoms, mold, and a lot more. Primal Trust has given me freedom from chasing one symptom after another.

I have been a little bit more open to new experiences instead of worrying about finding mold everywhere, avoiding places and food items altogether. Primal Trust has given me my mental peace back. The Primal Trust community has made me feel like I belong and that I’m understood.

It’s invaluable. I’m truly grateful for coming across this beautiful platform. If you’re someone who’s struggling like me, you should go ahead. Even if you’re not chronically ill, this membership has a lot to offer, in terms of true self discovery and living according to the true self values. <3 Dr. Cat, you have been brilliant!

Alexandra Berzak

I am so grateful for primal trust. It came into my life in divine timing, as all things do. I explain primal trust to people as the roots beneath the earth and the tree. I had been doing DNRS ( dynamic neural retraining system) to heal my illnesses related to limbic impairment, for 1.5 years when primal trust entered my life. I had hit a standstill with dnrs and primal trust has helped me address the underlying structures and narratives contributing to my limbic system impairment. It’s not work for the faint of heart. Because it is deeply “rooted” structures, it can cause some uprooting, but I trust the process and I trust Dr. Cat as I feel she has a deep understanding of the conscious and unconscious thought patterns driving chronic illness. For those interested in doing it, I would recommend pacing yourself if you see symptoms arise, and know it’ll all pass. I’m so grateful this program came into my life when it did. It got me over the hump I was in. Forever grateful to Dr. Cat.

Jill White

Participating in Dr. Cat’s Primal Trust Mentorship has been transformative in the months that I have been engaging in and incorporating her tools and systems into my life. I am much more grounded and have a much much much clearer picture of where I am going, while approaching each and every day as a day to be and to create, no matter what I do.   I was crying out for structure in my daily life to keep me grounded and centered and focused, and I now have that. It has lit the spark that I’ve always had in me and turned it into a burning flame to embrace my True Self, and to live abundantly within her.  My overall well-being is settling into confidence and a sense of “observing” and letting things surface and grow as they will.  I am speaking up rather than allowing things to stay stuck inside of me, even if it is imperfect.  There are honestly, too many things to name that have been added to my life in going through the mentorship.  It has definitely been a springboard for me into my amazing life!!!  I am currently going back through and will be excited to be adding more aspects that needed more time to surface.


I just want to say how grateful I am for the Primal Trust (PT) mentorship. I want to share with you how this has been an important step in my life. Perhaps this can give hope to others who are new here or interested in PT.

I know what it is like to be bed-bound and extremely limited. The first time I heard of anyone who had been where I was and gotten better was when I heard about DNRS, and I knew I had to try it. While it was one of the things that did help me feel hope again and take steps forward, I knew something was really missing, because it was so emotionally avoidant and I used to be able to hold space for others. When I heard about PT it really resonated with me, and I started the mentorship at my own slow pace when I was capable enough. 

From the start I have found Dr. Cat’s work amazing, the combination of her clinical experience, her own transformation journey, her clear mission and skills in guiding others. Her ability to draw from and unite different modalities, to be vulnerable and strong. I also have loved the advice and support from the mentors, primal trust guides and community members who feel like friends!

The best thing I have gained from PT is probably that I feel much more like myself and more at home in my body. I am much more capable of feeling triggered and feeling okay, feeling hurt and feeling compassion for myself and others.

I am much more aware of when I am aligned, and when I am acting from a “part” or old defense mechanisms. Sometimes I can really just feel the “old energy” of a “part” coming up, and just know before it even starts an impulse or thought inside of me that it is just a cellular memory, just an illusion. I still get “hijacked”, but I more often experience being outside of it. I am more capable of making good choices for myself (even my clairvoyant energy healer confirms this!).

I enjoy life more as it is, even if I am not “fully recovered”. I still have a lot to learn, but I feel motivated to walk the path.


To have this program in the midst of so much heaviness has given me GROUNDING like I can’t explain. It has given me a place to go when my body and mind and soul are broken in the deepest sense of the word.

I have more conviction in my journey and although my journey seemed impossible at times, and wanted to end it all. This mentorship has reminded me of me – and what my gifts are. I am moving forward on teaching – what I have been called to do for decades, I am rediscovering the gift of community- reaching out more, going for the gusto – not holding back and fully believing in me and my journey.

Sylvia Haas

Primal Trust has changed my life. I started the mentorship hoping to gain 25% in physical capacity ar most. Now, at the end, I can say that it has improved my physical capacity with around 40% and I expect it to continue as I keep applying the tools! This is an amazing result but actually the most valuable thing I take away from the mentorship is that I have finally learned the tools to befriend and trust my body and myself. The sky is the limit from here on!

Robin Walter

I am so grateful to Cathleen for the endless hours she had put into creating this Mentorship.  I have been doing some form of brain retraining for years… but TODAY is the first day that I really realized that I am not sick!  I have an injured limbic system.  It may sound odd that it just sunk in as I’ve learned that and regurgitated the info for years… but I know it today.

Falguni Bhavsar

Tonight, the eagle helped my MP prevail…the parts are calm…the part party has quieted and now I am here now in this…with freedom in choice…no resistance to the very thing I want…freedom.  I feel so empowered and embodied and at one with all the parts I shared today.

I have no reason to eat tonight…I have freedom.  This is a start of the very thing I want to create: freedom and comfort…I feel both.  I don’t need food to have those two very things I value. Hallelujah.

Cat…this is a topic that has waxed and waned for sometime now … and I have this deep knowing that it is settled, integrated.  I am truly heartfelt grateful for this program and learning.  You are a miracle to me.🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 

I cannot say this enough…I have freedom and comfort within me.

Dovida Goodman

When I met with Cat in my pre-mentorship interview, we both agreed that one major element of what I am working towards is becoming happy to be alive. Not sure I’ve ever really felt this. I trusted that this is something that would come naturally – that would sprout at some point thanks to the work I’m doing here.

Yesterday I became aware that I was feeling happy. The feeling is still present today and I just realized


This tender young shoot is ready to grow deep roots down into the ground and upwards to the heavens.

What changes in your life have been most significant since starting the Primal Trust mentorship?

I moved! Literally hearing Cathleen’s voice in my head  saying live your life. I started couples therapy and am having much better communication with my partner. And I am returning to work in a week and a half after 20 months off!

Amber Davis

What primal trust feels like: it feels like a knowing that everything is going to be alright, like being connected to a field of possibilities. It is a soft, expansive feeling, flowy, joyful, and it feels great to be alive and I can’t wait to see what ‘happens next’. I feel confident and have an effortless sense of humour about everything. I know I am worthy, and cherished. In my body I feel the energy flow, like Spring.

Janet Bone

Feeling that this mentorship is the missing piece of the puzzle in my retraining. Bringing me a feeling of hope, and a glimpse of calm.

Julie Smith

Wow. My level of awareness has increased so much! I don’t know how to describe it, exactly. It’s been amazing to get back in touch with my essence. I love that I’m sparkling, transcendent, joyful, and connected! I always thought just one of my parents was not there for me because he was so blatantly abusive, but I see now that I didn’t really have either parent protecting me during my early childhood. That knowledge has led me to see just how strong and resilient my MP is. I AM here. I feel limitless and back in touch with more of the real me. I can get connected much faster now, and the DSS and ABC and attunements are guiding my subconscious beautifully. I’m almost finished with my Vision Quest and look forward to completing it! I’ve weaned off Ativan and made it through contracting Covid as I’ve gone through your mentorship. It’s been quite a journey, and I’m just getting started!

Thank you for all that you poured into us!

*I embody expansiveness and peace, always free to create fun, beauty and abundance.

Ashley Adams

What changes in my life have been most significant since starting (teaching) the program? 

 I would have to say that my relationships have also improved. I communicate my needs and wants much more clearer with my husband. 

I have deep loving conversations with my children instead of barking orders or not taking the time to talk with them. 

I have also noticed that I am putting less blame on life situations and instead looking at them as teachers that have led me to finding my true self. 

I just wanna say a huge thank you to Cathleen. I feel honored to have been in this mentorship with you all. I finally feel like I can really be me now. I accept all parts of me and look forward to discovering more of me!

Miranda Slattery

The daily structure sheet component of the class has been absolutely transformational and enables me to make changes consistent with the goals of the mentorship. I had known that structure was an enormous element missing from my life, but previously hadn’t known what to do about it.

By aligning my beliefs and values with actions, daily structure sheets have guided my decisions about how to spend my days, enabled me to adopt new habits, and helped me to find rhythm and routine in my life. And every time I follow through for myself on a structure sheet item or project, I build Primal Trust.

Structure is sexy! Who knew? Yay!

Dawn Minami

I am more focused even on the days where that may be a challenge. The structure sheet gives me a record of the small and larger steps I’ve taken since the Mentorship began. The items on the sheet represent a well rounded list of activities and tasks to accomplish. Before this system I was so far over on the feminine side that it created a lot of anxiety to the point of sometimes being paralyzing. I trust myself that I’m steadily moving forward to create and not just fix/heal. I’ve moved forward with my business and a HeartMath certification and also make time for play, nature and art. Being aware of my parts and brules has created an understanding and compassion for myself (and others) and why I’ve had challenges that have kept me in perpetual limbo. Most of all, I have a sense of centeredness and trust in my intuition and knowing that I can handle life’s seasons.

-I can stay with the uncomfortable feeling/emotions in the body first AND knowing it is OK.-My “parts” wanting to run a show but I am fully aware of them-Decision to  start  to “do” life  (going out and eating what I want etc) instead of waiting till I don’t have them to live life.-Writing down all the  brules, which were 250+ (OH MY! ) and noticing I have been carrying a lot more than a thought  from culture, society, family lineage, people’s expectations and more.-Realization of myself carrying a victim-hood of suppression of feminine, which created so much anger.-Putting joy first. Sing, dance, art!-Going out to chat with my neighbors, having a connection with people and nature.

Ashley Adams

Signing up for your Primal trust course was a last minute decision and on that first night, I knew I was in the right place when you shared your experience of being in the church. It gave me so much validation and hope for better things to come. I love that you said that your “worthiness was an innate part of you rather than something that is earned!” That is the most pure and truthful message that could ever have been said! I think I will be adding that to all those profound quotes from you! Another favorite is “The only infection I have is fear.”

So many wonderful lessons and life changing messages from you! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work to bring forth this beautiful alchemy community!

 I think another profound one for me is coming to the realization, through your course that all along there was nothing I needed to fix. That was huge!!

Cheryl Snyder

I am so very grateful for you sharing your sensitivity, knowledge and wisdom with us.  I feel as though I’ve known you for eons. And I look forward to delving in deeper to all you have presented thus far and to continuing to evolve as we flow into Living Alchemy

Laura Scheindlin

Thanks for bringing this and us all together – it’s so powerful.

With the Primal Trust Mentorship I am experiencing much more confidence in being my true self which is resulting in better health mentally and physically.

Lisa Samson-Gatto

The Primal Trust course with Dr. Cathleen King came to me just when I needed it. I had practiced DNRS for about a year when I enrolled. The course is a beautiful container held by Dr. Cat where we take a deep dive into what we want to create in our lives. Her knowledge, wisdom and experience provide a unique way of presenting brain-retraining and neuroplasticiity that helped me to heal and grow further along my path. It has propelled me to funnel my talents and gifts in a way that I am incorporating into my daily life. The information and the work that I am doing because of the course is ongoing. I am beyond grateful that I embarked upon this journey with Dr. King and my fellow Primal Trust Sistars.

Janet B.

I am so happy i chose to take Cathleen King’s course! I have practised DNRS for over a year and very grateful i found it. However i needed more to continue my transformational journey. Through Cathleen’s detailed and heartfelt teachings, i am discovering my true self and how that is crucial to my self care, boundaries, healing of old wounds and relationships; so my body and mind are aligned in healthy play and work.


Cathleen does a seamless job at interweaving many elements through the map of transformation that she has created from her own experience. It has helped me start to organize around a structure to help me step into the word and face my demons. It has shown me how to move forward with the foundation I built in areas I have lacked Primal Trust. This has really ignited my Fire.

Chris G.

I think this is why I stopped really wanting to do DNRS coaching appointments, I realized I was doing the same thing over and over just to be soothed or told I was doing OK. Cathleen appointments are a little different, like going to see The Oracle in the Matrix”


As someone who’s been at brain rewiring for so many years, Primal Trust addresses questions I’ve had for so long. Though I’ve just recently started, it’s a game changer. Grateful only begins to describe my relief.

Steve Connolly

Primal Trust is amazing. A platform where you can learn about yourself, and how your past and your mind can create difficulties in your body, and then provides approaches for what to do about it.
I started Primal Trust at the start of 2021, and it has been massively stabilising for me, and increased my capacity, which has been very limited in the past. I have now completed the course twice, and now support the community with mentoring, and guiding study groups.
One of the most brilliant aspects of the platform is the sheer quantity and quality of content which is on offer and included within the monthly subscription. And I have the deepest of thanks to give to Cat King for the progress I have made.

Linda Coen

The Primal Trust Mentorship has had a really positive effect on my life.  Dr. Cat is so genuine in her delivery and has each class put together with so much thought and perfect sequencing from one week to the next. It all ties in together seamlessly. I now think and react from my authentic true self in just about every part of my life.  This mentorship is a treasure.

Luanne Hopkinson

What has been the result of participating in the mentorship?

It has taken my approach to recovery to the next level. I understand myself so much better and feel supported as I create my new life. I know I can support myself, and I don’t feel the need to rush for external validation or support, I am internally resourced.

What was the most valuable thing you gained from the process?

Understanding myself and tools and approaches to use when challenges arise.

What effect has the mentorship had on your overall wellbeing?

My health has improved and my emotional wellbeing has soared. Comparing who I was when I started 9 months ago and who I am now is lightyears away.

Thank you for the amazing programs.

Jo Roberts

I just wanted to take a minute to say how amazing you are and how grateful I am to have your words of wisdom in my ear when I am at the point of awareness. I am now exercising regularly and feel a huge shift, mentally and physically, and am sooooo happy.

Keep doing what you’re doing! I feel that everything you say is GOLDEN light transforming my soul!
