enter into the heart of prayer …
launch your bark … on the healthful waters of truth …
Mary Baker Eddy
spiritual healing — getting to the heart of the matter. cutting through the haze and glaze. the cacophony of half-truths and suppositions. the tired tread of stories worn thin. the grief of despair. the grip of disease. finding ourselves: pristine. precious. timeless. undiminished. indispensable. exquisite. holy. exceedingly loved. incapable of being separated from “God, who is Love always, — Love infinitely wise and altogether lovely.”
The theme song of my life has been the yearning to know and understand the divine. For me it’s meant the difference between thinking about life, and being the very life that we’re meant to be. In Mary Baker Eddy’s words: “Spirituality is the basis of all true thought and volition.” An understanding of this has brought practical answers and healing results to every avenue of life. It’s an inherent spiritual guide that equips us to deal with any conflict or challenge.
As a Christian Science Practitioner and Teacher, services I offer include Christian Science treatment, consultation, and class instruction.
Spiritual healing is always about coming home to who we already are. It’s a built-in, powerful tool always at hand. It belongs to us no matter what our religious, cultural, racial, political, sexual affiliation, orientation may be. Call it a divine under-current, spiritual life-force, intuition, authenticity, core of truth — we all have it, and it is calling out to be heard.
No matter what you’re dealing with in your life, the solution at its core is always spiritual. Whatever the issues, however complex or long-standing — physical, mental,
or emotional — there is an answer right now, waiting to be discovered.
classes — launching into the deep
Christian Science class instruction is much more than a class about healing. It’s about awakening to the spiritual reality of all existence—awakening that brings healing, and includes practical, scientific understanding to help and heal the world.
This 12 day immersion experience is about launching into the deep, following that inner calling and hunger for God, the heart’s protests for something true, just and right for all. It is about spiritual healing: an ongoing commitment to live and love what’s true. It’s also about coming together with others to bring healing to the world.
… to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

don’t let the world squeeze you into its own mould …
the world around you
making the shoe
appear to fit
your life is
child of the Most High
“hiding place from the wind”
river in a dry place
“shadow of a great rock in a
weary land” **
child of God
