Meet Catherine

I’m the author of four books on how to move successfully through crisis and harness the transformational power it holds. A former university lecturer, I left my academic career behind to step into my soul’s deeper calling following a profound crisis of awakening. I embraced my inner leader to set up a UK non-profit, which is still going strong 15 years later. My seminal text In Case of Spiritual Emergency: Moving Successfully Through Your Awakening was published and I stepped up into speaking internationally.

My media appearances include BBC Radio 4 and TimeWarner TV. Most recently, I’ve initiated the publication of an Open Letter, along with an accompanying petition to the UN. This led to me creating and hosting Birth the New Earth, a global online series of dialogues with 20 world-leading visionaries. I’m the Founder of Co-Creating Our Future through which we offer online group programmes. My work has been described as visionary and pioneering.

I qualified as a Mindfulness Trainer in 2007, having seen how powerful mindfulness was in helping me through my spiritual emergence(y). Clients have included the National Health Service, training therapists, and the UK Ministry of Defence, working with traumatised soldiers returning from war zones, such as Iraq and Afghanistan. Two of my books are in the Sheldon Press Mindful Way series.
