Welcome to Transformation Talk. Every Thursday for a year, starting in September 2012, I’ll post an interview with someone who is a force for good in the world. These men and women have either deepened their passion or found their calling after experiencing a loss, trauma or diagnosis.
I want to broaden the conversation around grief and its transformative power. My hope is that in their words you’ll find echoes of your story. In their inspired actions, you’ll see yourself and your immense possibility.

Today’s interview is with writer and square-peg Karen Caterson. I’d known Karen from the world of blogging and when Benjamin was stillborn, she shared with me the story of her son Christopher’s short life and death. This sent her on the path to being a psychotherapist, and eventually to the work she does now with “mindful non-conformists”.

In her own words:
Hi! I’m Karen Caterson, aka Square-Peg Karen. Are you a Square-Peg (i.e. mindful nonconformist)? Yes? Great! Let’s get acquainted – come visit me at Square-Peg People, where I encourage celebrating your uniqueness, building an X-treme self-care practice, and focusing on what’s right with you (not what’s wrong with you!).
