Catherine was approached in 1997 by actor Kerry Armstrong for permission  for Kerry write a screen play in relation to her 3 day women’s workshops on Sensuality and the Sacred Feminine called ‘Creative Harmony’, of which Kerry had experienced with Catherine 3 years earlier.

After several meetings it was agreed that the actors and writers involved meet for a 2 day residential workshop facilitated by Catherine in order to immerse themselves into  their roles and to discover the nature of the work, under the film working title of ‘Extraordinary Women’. The workshop was successful and further pre-production meetings took place.  However, at that time other projects became a priority and this project is currently on hold.
