Catherine had already experienced a rich life when she met Douglas Harding, a renowned English mystic and philosopher. As a child she had lost her beloved father in World War II, and a few years later, in Paris, she fell in love with Driss Chraïbi, now one of Morocco’s most renowned writers, and raised their five children. When the marriage ended she went to India to study under the yoga teacher Iyengar. On her return to Paris she was persuaded to attend a workshop on The Headless Way … Catherine's life story provides a backdrop to the direct and practical experiments of perceiving who we really are, found in this book and developed by Harding. As a teenager she had already realized, ‘There is another reality here which is luminous Light and silence’, and through Douglas’ experiments she learned how to access this at will. Catherine brought a feminine voice to Douglas' teachings and together they introduced countless people to the art of Seeing, conducting workshops throughout the world till his death in 2007. Karin Visser met Catherine in 2014 and their conversations inspired this book: ‘More and more,' Catherine tells Karin, ‘I realize that I am not Catherine, the little Catherine. I am the eternal universal consciousness, experiencing life in the form of Catherine, just as you are the universal consciousness experiencing being you. At the root of ourselves we are this clear universal consciousness.’

Mother of two adult sons and former drama teacher, Karin Visser has explored ways of discovering your true nature for three decades. She recognized in Douglas Harding's experiments a radical breakthrough for spiritual seekers, enabling them to see directly who they truly are. She runs the Headless Café and shares Seeing internationally. You can visit her website or

  • By Guest on December 13, 2016

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and finished it all too soon. I thought the style was clear and easy to read and it held my interest throughout. I feel I gained a good idea about Catherine, who she was and what became important to her and well as a glimpse into the life of Douglas. It left me feeling that I wanted more of the information and exercises at the end of the book so it certainly stimulated me to search for more. Well done Karin.

    I was riveted reading about Catherine's life. I enjoyed all aspects of this book, Karin's reflections as she was interviewing Catherine, Catherine's life story (especially an insight into the shocks of war, and her dedicated life as a wife and mother), Catherine's reflections on life having lived 8 decades, and the relaxed introduction to the seeing exercises at the end of the book. Loved it. Thank you.
