Her work has spanned 6 continents taking her to places such as Afghanistan, South Africa, Argentina, Australia, and China. Where ever she goes she remains committed to the Artistry of Life and the Living Ceremony that we create when we come together in understanding, compassion, and authentic expression. She honors her teachers Jack Kornfield, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Ram Dass, Kai Nicole Hill, Marshall Rosenberg as well as Stephen and Ondrea Levine for supporting, inspiring and influencing her spiritual path with a daily mind and heart practice in Being Nonviolence. In 1997, she founded the TEMBA School, a visionary K – 8 academic program rooted in nonviolent philosophy, NVC, sustainable living, and artistic expression. Through Play in the Wild!, an organization she later co-founded, Catherine went on to incorporate the principles of TEMBA into camps for youth, educators, and families, worldwide, with a unique curriculum that cultivates the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual maturity of participants so that they can engage their world with an empowered mindful presence. She is author of Peaceable Revolution Through Education.
