“When we’re standing for the rights of humanity to be seen and not be invisible, that’s a very spiritual thing”

Is democracy just for nations, or also for work locations?

Are our work environments fear-based or freedom-centred?

How come a 21st century woman with a passion for workplace democracy finds inspiration in the life and ideas of a spiritual leader from the nineteenth century?

Could the local setup of a global church be seen as a precursor of organisational democracy practices in today’s businesses – from small companies to multi-nationals?

All this and more in a thought-provoking interview with WorldBlu founder Traci Fenton.

“This is woman’s hour, in all the good tendencies, charities, and reforms of to-day.” (Mary Baker EddyMiscellaneous Writings, p.245)

I write on spirituality and health for a diversity of online media outlets, from my perspective as a Christian Science practitioner. I have been published by the Independent, the Washington Post, the Guardian, E-Hospice, MindBodyGreen and The Christian Science Monitor and I post regularly on the Huffington Post UK and BuzzFeed. In addition to writing and broadcast appearances I enjoy engaging with journalists, academics, health professionals and government officials about the possibilities for improving health outcomes through a greater emphasis on spirituality in healthcare and social care. I've also greatly valued the many opportunities I have had to travel globally for my church and to meet people around the world. My wife Jenny and I spent 10 years in Boston, USA, before returning to London in 2002, to take on a role as the media and legislative liaison for Christian Science in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. I studied at the University of Surrey earning a BSc Hons Degree in Modern Mathematics before the impact of spirituality on health caught my attention and re-shaped my career.

    I thought there were many very interesting and helpful ideas in Traci’s talk about her WorldBlu company and its work. One or two of her comments that I cherish particularly are that everyone has worth, everyone needs to understand that worth and that everyone has a purpose in life.

Let me know what you think!
