The Healing Power of Stillness

Lari talked about how everyone can discover a stillness that brings rest and healing to our everyday lives. Christian Science teaches how to find a deep-settled healing calm within ourselves that cannot be disrupted by fear or any outward disturbance. The talk included examples of how the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy have brought lasting peace and complete healing to individual lives.

The talk was given on Sunday, March 5, 2017, at 2:30 p.m. in the Hampton Public Library. All were invited to come hear this lecture; and afterwards, if you like, to talk directly with Lari.

Lari works full-time as a healing practitioner of Christian Science and lectures in English and French for general audiences and youth and webinar events. To see her published writings, go to Christian Science JSH and Time for Thinkers.

She described her experience: "It was the first time I felt so far outside of my comfort zone. I was in Paris and had just received news that the job and place to live that I thought I would have for the next few months had fallen through. I had very little money remaining, no place to stay that night, and a return plane ticket for three months away. And, I needed to work to be able to afford the next semester of university tuition in the fall.

"But I'd just been reading this idea from Psalms, "Whither shall I go from thy spirit?... If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me". I glimpsed that there was no dark situation that the light of Christ - the inspiration that comes from God to each one of us - couldn't penetrate. This was a transforming moment for me and it started me on a life-long journey to practice Christian Science healing and share it with others."

Other Christian Science churches give lectures in the spring and fall; see our Events page for more information.
