It’s all about writing: books, articles and wellbeing notes. Ink flows, metaphorically, through my veins. My most recent, non-fiction, book is This One is Special (O-Books/John Hunt Publishing). It’s based on the experience of bringing up a son with profound and multiple learning disabilities, and his able sister. They have been the biggest teachers in my life. This One is Special isn’t just for parents – it’s for anyone who goes through difficult times, and seeks strategies to help them thrive, becoming truly themselves.

I became accredited with The Healing Trust in 2003. Their training taught me how guided meditation could help a person relax at very deep levels, and create a space conducive to self-healing. Meditation has been a major part of my  work and writing ever since.

For ten years I was a special school governor, which gave me unique and often moving insights into the bewildering range of challenges that families with disabled children face. More recently I was a trustee with The Healing Trust and edited their membership magazine, ‘Spiritus’.

With a degree in English Literature from the University of Cambridge, I believe in the power of stories: for insights, healing and happiness. I am now writing my first novel, and that’s a whole new, fascinating learning curve. The silver-penned adventure continues.

    • Thank you for your kind comments, Diane; much appreciated. I love your choice of words here. Beauty, healing, wellness and spirituality are truly life-giving and affirming. Just writing the words can make us feel good 🙂

      • I totally agree with you, where one focuses the mind, emotions and life intention can profoundly effect the outcome of their life…even writing these words give me hope..’Peace, Love, Inspiration, Positive thinking’!

  3. Very nice and inspiring blog, Suzanne! Thanks for following “Known is a drop, Unknown is an Ocean”. 🙂

    • Thank you Ganesh. I found your blog beautiful and uplifting.

  4. I look forward to reading more of your blog. I meditate a lot, too. Through illness, I’ve learned a lot already and continue to learn as much as I can. I also try to educate and inspire. Off to read some more of your posts. Have a great weekend.

    • Thank you for your supportive comments, Tammy. I admire your open and honest writing in your own blog… and I totally agree with you about meditation. It’s the fastest mood changer I know. Take care x x

      • You’re quite welcome. I just wish I had known more about meditation a long time ago. Hope you had a great day. 🙂

  5. Healing is a long road and takes commitment and strength to stand apart from the herd.. Sharing and healing others gives me faith that this is the true way of spirituality…Religion is a choice not a process…I feel most of us including myself had been or still are confused and thought they had to choose one over the other ‘Spirituality vs Religion’…how silly of a thought..Some day our planet will understand the unity principle. Love & Blessings to all!

  6. Thank you for your response…very helpful to share a world with like minded individuals like you…

    • And you, Diane. I value your words, ‘commitment and strength’ because each time I write about personal experience, I do feel exposed – I can’t hide among the herd! But it’s worth it.

  7. The truth is what heals and to be vulnerable in this way is the Spiritual way. My experiences came from the rooms of AA in which I was a nurse/counselor. This taught and demonstrated to me how to be honest and value each day. Addiction was their teacher, wholistic healing was mine, however, it does not matter what gets one on the path for in spirit all is the One. Suzanne, I love your share and others too, thanks.
