Welcome to the website of writer Cathleen Hulbert

This time-travel tale is about the illusions of separation and how human beings overcome these illusions with their own creativity, determination and love. Set in Hawaii, both ancient and modern, and in New York City, "The First Lamp" challenges many cultural beliefs that keep us locked in the ego's mindset of struggle and limitation. It encourages freedom of thought and spirit as we explore our universe. It also is a love letter to the planet and the intelligent beings who live in the sea.

Praise for "The First Lamp:"

"This book is breathtakingly beautiful. Its spiritual wisdom is tangible to the heart. 'The First Lamp' fulfills a yearning and answers questions that are crying out to be heard. It entranced me with its mystical depth. It is a story that can touch all of us with the realization of what is possible if we only believe! I have always been a spiritual person. Having read "The First Lamp," my ways were softened in a most beautiful and magical manner. I was gifted with an enchanting perspective through the dolphins, the turtles, and the mystical wisdom of the author. I feel richer than I have ever been, for not only have my ways been softened, but my focus has been shifted towards my goal with renewed energy. After reading this book, the sacred alchemy within my soul burns with a new passion."

"I was immediately drawn into the story. It pulled me in through the eyes of Kalah. 'The First Lamp' is inspiring, showing us that all truths are within and how we must care for one another and our world. Cathleen Hulbert, through Kalah's eyes and thoughts, takes us into her journeys throughout beautiful locations such as the Big Island of Hawaii. I had the pleasure to take 'The First Lamp' on a Caribbean Cruise recently. Reading each word, I felt that I became one with the dolphins swimming along the side of the ship, experiencing the stories that each of them had experienced. The book made an already wonderful vacation out at sea a more than wonderful experience."
