Cathleen awakened to the conscious lifestyle benefits of travel throughout her career in marketing travel and tourism at a major global PR firm. Her promotional campaigns were always motivated by a deeply felt belief in the personal transformational qualities as well as the economic benefits of travel. However, it was on an African safari vacation that she came face to face with the deeper meaning of Conscious Travel. She was profoundly inspired by a Zimbabwean safari guide, whose generosity of spirit and dedication to serving his clients moved her to want to become more directly involved with the transformational potential of travel.
Cathleen often gives credit for her new direction to a heart stopping moment on safari in Botswana when a majestic leopard passed within a few feet from her jeep, looked her in the eye, and took her breath away. At the time, she was reminded of what it means to “live in the present.” It was later, in conversation with a Mexican Shaman, that she learned that in the legend of the indigenous cultures, looking a wild cat in the eye is a source of strength. She is now using that strength to focus more deeply on her personal Path to Conscious Living. An avid writer and storyteller, Johnson says, “As seekers, when we travel our eyes and our hearts are more open to living in the moment, which is key to a conscious life. I want to help as many people as possible to have those transformational moments.”
