Mary Baker Eddy & spiritual healing

Mary Baker Eddy, 19th Century Discoverer and Her Great Discovery

Michelle Nanouche, Speaker

March celebrates Women’s History Month. It also marks the bicentennial of the birth of Mary Baker Eddy, a widely recognized religious leader, author and healer. Through prayer and deep study of the Bible, she discovered that spiritual healing is based on the divine laws of God, Spirit, which she subsequently named Christian Science.

In her presentation, followed by open Q&A, Michelle discusses some essentials of Christian Science healing and its broader contribution to solving individual and societal problems today.

Michelle is a Christian Science practitioner and member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. The talk was sponsored by Ninth Church of Christ, Scientist, Los Angeles (Mid-Wilshire)

A spiritual revolution: The quest to experience God - Giulia Nesi Tetreau, Speaker

In this timely and insightful talk, Giulia Nesi Tetreau offers a spiritual perspective on how to experience divine Love as a tangible, effective force for good, and gain newfound hope for a better life.  Giulia has spent her entire career in the healthcare field, formerly as a psychotherapist and now a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science.
