Rev. Catherine Torpey is a consulting Minister at Middle and the Executive Director of The International Focusing Institute. Focusing is a mind-body connection practice which helps us bring our whole selves to our personal, professional and spiritual lives.
Catherine is a graduate of Union Theological Seminary and an ordained minister who led a small church on Long Island for a decade. She became a member of Middle in 2015 and has become known for her Bible studies. She brings a lifelong love for the scriptures, years of academic and personal study, and a way of reading them that is open and non-dogmatic. She also loves to sing and is a passionate devotee of West African drumming – plus her Spanish is not too bad.
She loves Middle and is so grateful to Jacqui, the ministry team, the staff and of course all the congregants and everyone who attends her classes who inspire her and co-create a loving, non-judgmental atmosphere where God’s presence can be felt.
