In celebration of International Women’s Day, I am happy to announce the publication of A Free and Wild Creature: Women, Service and Motherhood.
This book is a selection of blogs that have appeared on this website from 2014 to 2019. As the past five years have flown by, these bi-monthly reflections followed each other without any thought on my part to their cohesion or continuity. They simply captured moments in time – concerns, joys, wonder, delight, and sorrow.
And yet, while preparing this series of four small books, the reflections seemed to have mysteriously folded into one another. Like the flotsam washed ashore by the sea, these reflections seemed to have divided themselves by weight, roundness, shape and tone.
Since I can remember, I have always loved walking along the edge of the sea and collecting shells, drift wood, and polished stones. You might think of this book as a beaded necklace of ocean treasures. Each reflection has been selected, polished, and threaded together with the hope that they form a synthesis of love and will. A message of power and hope and all that it means to be fully human.
What people are saying about A Free and Wild Creature
Thank you Catherine! This book is so beautiful, and so subtly written…. you are both an artist and a scientist, and what is more, a woman with a true heart.
Isabelle Clotilde Küng Faillettaz
Thank you for your perspective and inspiration. Beautifully told and deeply pondered perspectives on the social roles and programming that we unconsciously operate from.
Amy Sundari Finlay
Reading Catherine’s writing is to find yourself drinking from a clear stream that feeds the soul’s unnamed thirst. Her words hold wisdom, gentleness, presence, and beauty. Reflect on them and your world enlarges.
Greetings dear Catherine! Che BRAVA la nostra Catherine. I am deeply touched by your recent piece. So timely. So unique. So rich in understanding. You never disappoint.

I just want to let you know that I enjoy reading your writings and thank you for being so open.

I’ve ordered your book, *Free and Wild Creature*, and can’t wait for when it arrives so I can read all of it!
Also, I wanted to mentioned that I really appreciate the work you did on the AAP newsletter. That was a lot of work to organize and bring together. I love the way my essay and poem turned out in the newsletter. I enjoyed reading through the various articles and ideas in the rest of the newsletter as well. The exercises Assagioli did to practice activating his will were interesting. Though these didn’t have an immediate result, it seems they did influence his thinking about how to educate the will and develop his inner self.
I hope the wedding of the Nigerians on Friday went beautifully.
