English French

New York, NY USA — Christine 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 their children.
 
Later 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!
