Meet Kate Freeman & Catherine Seo

Kate and Catherine have been in an ongoing conversation about these issues, how to gently and with tenderness enter into self-love and freedom since the early 1980s. As they have each grown in their interests, outreach, and contributions, they have connected and celebrated one another’s progress.

Recently, in deepening and realizing the power of their mutual support and friendship, they decided to create the Embodyment Project. Catherine’s research in this area has provided a ground of awareness in which to begin to build upon, and Kate’s ongoing coaching and teaching in the domain of Releasing continues to expand.

We are both so pleased to be working together and with each one of you, to bring more self-love, self-acceptance, and self-compassion into all of our lives. We consider this the beginning of ever so much more freedom.
