Catherine will facilitate a writing workshop based on her book, Heal Yourself with Writing. She states"Our lives may be determined less by past events than by the way we remember them. If we learn how to re-frame the pieces of our past and rewrite our life story so that our pain becomes meaningful, we can radically boost our changes of healing, empowerment, growth and transformation."

Catherine Ann Jones, M.A.holds a graduate degree in Depth Psychology and Archetypal Mythology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She received a Fulbright Research Scholar award to study shamanism in India. She has taught at The New School University, University of Southern California, Pacifica Graduate Institute, and the Esalen and the Omega Institutes.

She has written two books about writing The Way of Story: The Craft & Soul of Writing and Heal Your Self with Writing (Nautilus Book Award 2014).
After playing major roles in more than fifty plays including on Broadway, she became disappointed by the lack of good roles for women and wrote a play about Virginia Woolf, titled On the Edge. The play was written before many of Woolf's diaries were published but was prescient in understanding how Woolf was thinking. The play won a National Endowment for the Arts Award and the Aspen Playwrights Conference Award and the Eugene O'Neill Award. Ten of Jones's plays, including Calamity Jane (both play and musical) and The Women of Cedar Creek, have won multiple awards.
