Looking for an alternative to the negative side effects
of drugs and intrusive medical treatments?
• Discover how an understanding of God as infinite good
and ever-present Love brings healing.
• Find out how the scientific system of prayer-based healing
can be used
by anyone to bring the consistent and reliable health to their
inter-faith talk for everyone!
Driessen is a Christian Science practitioner, teacher
and lecturer who has relied on this system of healing
all of her life -- as a ballet dancer, harpist, track
and long distance runner, swimmer and diver, and snowboarder
and mother! She has found that this spiritual perspective
has also strengthened her work as a French teacher at
Indiana University and in the inner city schools of
Chicago; as Director of the Indo-Chinese Refugee program
helping to resettle refugees from Vietnam, Laos and
Cambodia at the end of the Vietnam War. After receiving
her Juris Doctorate, she opened a private law practice
specializing in criminal, juvenile and domestic law,
and then developed a comprehensive rehabilitation program
as an alternative to prison for women offenders and
she worked in a law firm specializing in hospital law,
and then as an attorney with the Committee on Publication,
Legal and Legislative Division at The Mother Church,
working on a Medicare bill and the Child Abuse Prevention
and Treatment Act. For the last 13 years, Christine
has been lecturing internationally in Africa, Europe
and North American, in English and French, specializing
in talks to youth, medical, interfaith and university
communities. She is co-author of the book, "Soul
of Medicine: Spiritual Perspectives and Clinical Studies"
from Harvard Medical School where she has been lecturing
for the last several years. Christine has a special
interest in and love for environmental sustainability.
And though she no longer practices law, she says she
still argues cases--our divine right to health and peace--only
in a higher court -- the Court of Spirit!
