Keynote Speakers Inspire Inner Nature at Conference; Philosophy, Science and Theology Festival Drawcard


Byline: DAVID MOASE newsroom@dailyexaminer.com.au

IF you imagine being diagnosed with cancer would be the worst possible moment of your life, you need to meet Ian Gawler.

Not only is Ian a cancer survivor but he spends his life convincing people that not only is cancer far from a death sentence, it is an opportunity to turn your life around for the better.

That will be his message when he speaks this morning at the 2009 Philosophy, Science and Theology Festival in Grafton.

His talk is titled 'Cancer as a Path to Enlightenment' and it will encourage people to make changes to their lifestyle whether faced with a disease like cancer or not.

"From the point of view of the meaning of life, people often take it for granted until they are faced with what at first seems a disaster," Ian said.

"Cancer can turn your life upside down and get people reflecting on what is important to them."

Ian will present another two talks today, the third day of the festival being held at the Christ Church Cathedral, joining his wife Ruth, a GP, for 'Meditation as Therapy' and a forum titled 'Our Now, Our Tomorrow'.
