Hello, I'm Victoria Breault, the founder of Katharses! You might be thinking "What is Katharses?" or "Why is this important?” Let me take you back to a defining moment in my life, back in 2019. I was practising the drums when frustration started creeping in as I struggled to master a particular rhythm. I set the drumstick aside, exasperated, and that's when my mom entered the room, concerned. She sensed my distress and asked what was wrong. In a fit of frustration, I grabbed the drumstick and unleashed a scream, relentlessly pounding the nearby washing machine. Needless to say, my mom was far from pleased. To this day, you can still see the dents I left behind.
But here's the thing anger is never the solution to our problems. Sure, I wasn't angry at the instrument and my own shortcomings. Yet, I took my anger out at the wrong time and on the wrong object. I didn't have a safe space to release it. And I know many of you can relate. We often bury our anger and issues deep inside, either because we don't want to burden others with it or because we simply lack the means to express those emotions properly. That's why I created something truly unique—a sanctuary for the suppressed, a 'rage room' where people can finally let loose.
Katharses offers you the freedom to unleash it all—smash, break, scream, throw, demolish. It's your chance to release your inner bull. No judgement, no consequences, just pure Katharses. So join me and countless others who have discovered the transformative power of letting it all out. Together, let's reclaim our emotions and find liberation in the ruins.
