THE NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE IS MORE THAN THE TERM SUGGESTS

By Linda Cull • March 17th, 2016

It has been estimated that in the last fifty years, some 25 million people have had a near-death experience (NDE). You may have heard of the term, coined in 1975 by Dr. Raymond Moody in his NDE classic Life After Life. I have a lot of admiration for Dr. Moody and the research he and other NDE experts have done since then, but the term is not all encompassing. I’dRead more…

A SACRED GARDEN IN MEMORY OF LOVED ONES PASSED

By Linda Cull • March 4th, 2016

Have you ever thought about creating a sacred garden? Something a little like Wendy Whiteley’s majestic Secret Garden. What a brilliant example of sacred, living art it is! Wendy was the wife, muse and model of iconic Australian artist Brett Whiteley. Together they lived in a gorgeous mansion in Lavender Bay with views of Sydney harbour. When Brett died in 1992, Wendy channelled her grief into restoring a large stretch ofRead more…

WHAT’S INSPIRED CREATIVITY?

By Linda Cull • February 25th, 2016

When you feel really inspired in life, particularly in your creative pursuits, things seem to flow easily and you feel uplifted. New and innovative ideas come readily, you are able to generate a good volume of output in your work and hobbies, you make clever conversation, do great parenting and all the rest. You feel uninhibited and enlarged somehow, even intuitive. It’s a state you’re in when you do something awesome. You’reRead more…

But, if technology kind of freaks you out like it did me, in a big way and for a long time, well then, I’m livingRead more…

WHAT’S YOUR STORY?

By Linda Cull • February 10th, 2016

This is my book launch week, and as I go about letting people know that my memoir Where The Light Lives has now been released, it’s an occasion for reflection. My overriding feeling is – woohoo – let’s pop the champers! But in a quietish way. I’ve never been one for a big celebration. I guess that’s why I’m a writer, I prefer the quieter, introspective life. I am, however, veryRead more…

WAY, WAY BEYOND MEDITATION, WHERE ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?

She has touched a lot of different people’s lives, working quietly and tirelessly as a counsellor and meditation instructor. She isRead more…

ARTIST TESSA JOY & HER COLOURFUL NARRATIVES OF PEOPLE FROM FARAWAY PLACES

By Linda Cull • January 28th, 2016

When I met with artist musician Tessa Joy, in Fremantle, Western Australia, at the historic Kidogo Arthouse, there was a wedding florist preparing the space for a mid-afternoon ceremony. What a beautiful place to be married in! The bride and groom would be exchanging their vows in this little bit of heaven by the sea, in view of my friend’s exotic art being exhibited on its walls. Tessa and I didRead more…
