I’m a freelance writer focussing on the undeniable connection between our thinking and our health. I write for metropolitan and regional news media throughout Australia and beyond, and am a regular contributor to Australia’s national forum, Online Opinion, and the APN regional network in Northern NSW and Queensland.
Because my own spiritual practice of Christian Science has helped me so much over the past four decades, including in my role representing Christian Science churches in this area as the Committee on Publication for Northern-Eastern Australia (NSW, QLD, ACT, NT), I’m curious to see how the elements involved are being recognised and implemented in society. For instance, science is increasingly exploring the impact consciousness has on medical outcomes.
I seek to bring a better understanding of Christian Science to public discourse, and so I hope this blog will speak to the hearts (and address the concerns) of those who are convinced that spirituality and religion can never have a scientific basis, and therefore cannot make a difference or heal. Depending on your perspective, relying on a spiritual, prayer-based method like I do can seem a little, well … precarious. But I’ve found that once you get a broader view, it’s really quite safe, not to mention effective.
Originally from Sydney, I now live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, where my husband and I delight in the many outdoor pursuits available, along with our nearby extended family. Prior to this I worked in educational administration in both the tertiary and secondary education fields.
I’ve set up this blog so that we can have a conversation about spirituality, health and healing. Feel free to leave a comment on one of my posts or shoot me an email. In the meantime, enjoy the blog.
