Innovative collaboration creating transformational change
Is your organization healthy? Is your work flowing? Are you and your colleagues creatively engaged?
Understanding one another is what it's all about. It's an art form, so let's bring our skill, heart and ingenuity to the table.

Catherine Pawasarat catalyzes self-awareness to support your business.

What Do You Do While Meditating?

What You Do While Meditating (On Emerging from a Month-Long Advance) It’s been a few weeks since I came out of my month-long solitary meditation retreat, which I prefer to call “advances.” What a valuable experience that was, and challenging to describe.
