Cathlene’s life has been far from ordinary. She exited a high-control religious group and an abusive marriage, all the while integrating into a new country as a mother of young children.
Whereas her innate creativity used to be put to use for the mission of the religious group she was part of, she gradually learned to embrace it as a tool for self expression and healing.
In this LOVE SESSION, she will share her learnings about how we all can turn painful or scary changes into something beautiful, with a central role for embracing creativity as a tool for resilience.
