My Life is My Message (Mohandas Gandhi) sets scene for ED conference and beyond

“My Life is My Message” — Mohandas Gandhi (1869-1948).

img_4402-113x150Five words say it all. To come across Mr Gandhi’s statue on my first walkabout upon arriving in San Francisco today, for the 2016 AED ICED, was ever so meaningful (together with the gorgeous sunshine, fresh sea breeze, that dealt with jet lag fast).

Together with the Golden Gate … well, maybe add a little colour in your imagination — which is the symbol for our conference — Building Bridges Across the World, I felt the bridge and the statue provide a solid anchor and base from which great hopes may spring at this year’s conference. May we strive to be like Mr Ghandi, and let the way we live our life be our message, too, and the bridges will be built…and the mysteries about eating disorders will be solved, and treatments will improve and early intervention will increase, the world over …

About June Alexander

All articles by June Alexander

As founder of Life Stories Diary my prime motivation is to connect with people who want to share their story. Why? Because your story is important. My goal with this blog is to provide a platform for you to share your story with others. Building on the accomplishments of The Diary Healer the Life Stories Diary blog will continue to be a voice for people who have experienced an eating disorder, trauma or other mental health challenge, and provide inspiration through the narrative, to live a full and meaningful life.

My nine books about eating disorders focus on learning through story-sharing. Prior to writing books, which include my memoir, I had a long career in print journalism. In 2017, I graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy (Creative Writing), researching the usefulness of journaling and writing when recovering from an eating disorder or other traumatic experience.
Today I combine my writing expertise with life experience to help others self-heal. Clients receive mentoring in narrative techniques and guidance in memoir-writing. I also share my editing expertise with people who are writing their story and wish to prepare it to publication standard. I encourage everyone to write their story. Your story counts!
