Bronwyn at Paraparaumu Beach

I live on the Kapiti Coast in Aotearoa New Zealand, a small group of islands in the southern hemisphere.

The rich culture of indigenous Māori people and the introduced religions of settlers and colonists, along with migrants from the Pacific, Asia and Europe, blend into a unique mix of creative, spiritual art forms: music, writing, paintings, sculpture and other creative work.

My liturgical writing draws mostly on the Judeo-Christian tradition of my upbringing and my progressive Christian faith communities - real and online.

As well as being inspired by other writers, artists and theologians in Aotearoa—Joy Cowley, Anne Powell, Sir Lloyd Geering, Rev Dr Margaret Mayman—my writing's informed by meditation practices, humanist and post-christian philosophy and a growing interest in interfaith dialogue and sharing.
