Colleen Anne Smith (B.A., Dip. Ed.,Dip. Hom., Dip. Herb.) has
spent many years as a teacher- not only of high school students, but also as a
teacher of spiritual philosophy. Her interest in metaphysical reality began with
her study of Homeopathy in the1980's.
As a practitioner of Homeopathy, she wrote Homeopathy The
Healer, an introductory primer for those beginning treatment in this
alternative field of healing. Her dedication to promoting holistic health led
her into other fields such as Herbalism, Reflexology and metaphysical healing.
As her experience in the healing arts widened, her
understanding of spiritual philosophy deepened enhancing her awareness of
spiritual connections beyond the material world.
Harnessing The Alchemist Within
is the product of over twenty five years of growth along a spiritual pathway
which continues to evolve into greater awareness of Soul centered living.
