Catherine tells us of her work with the London Meditation Project, which has allowed the veteran’s the tools to deal with their combat experiences and gain personal peace and acceptance.

Catherine was a creative, idealistic kid, envisioning a world in which everyone did what they loved most and thus somehow all would work out fine.

Workaholic eco-rebel in design college. Learned to meditate in 1995. 2008: Loving-kindness meditation unexpectedly connected to the experience of soldiers. A personal loss deepened understanding of trauma and regret.

In 2010, Catherine founded the Peace of Mind meditation project, supporting healing and truthful dialogue between combat veterans and civilians.
