Scott Catamas has dedicated his life to the education and enlightenment of all people through communication. He has won multiple Emmy awards for his educational television programs, which were broadcast nationally over PBS. Scott has also produced a wide variety of programs for HBO, SHOWTIME, NBC, UPN, FOX and PBS. He has reached millions through programs that he wrote, directed and/or produced via theatre, film and television.
In 2001, Scott was introduced to Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, the founder and creator of Nonviolent Communication
, also known as NVC. Marshall’s organization hired Scott to produce video projects about Marshall and NVC. This provided Scott with the opportunity to travel with Marshall while filming his work. "I was deeply touched by the dynamic power of these tools, as well as the simplicity. I saw that anyone, regardless of their educational or cultural background, could immediately improve their relationships. I have been studying, practicing and teaching these tools ever since,” remarks Scott.
He currently teaches classes and workshops throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. He also provides private coaching for individuals, couples, families, churches and businesses. Scott’s other interests include the Global Oneness Movement and environmental activism.
He was trained by Al Gore as a “Climate Project Presenter” and volunteers his time to high schools, colleges, conferences, festivals and fairs. Scott receives weekly updates from the Climate Project, and meets with Mr. Gore and his team once or twice a year. Scott’s presentations on the environment balance messages of urgency, hope and inspiration. He provides both scientific knowledge about our challenges and specific solutions that are now available.
Scott also spent time in India at the University of Oneness, where he learned how to give Oneness Blessings
(also known as Deeksha). He has a long history of spiritual practice and study in a wide variety of disciplines and schools of thought. Scott honors all pathways to the Divine. He often starts and ends his workshops with Oneness Blessings.
He lives in Northern California with his beloved wife Gabriele and their two dogs. Gabriele often teaches with Scott and travels with him.
