In this interview with Anita Stanfield, the conversation covers her love of cooking which became the inspiration for her cookbook and website. But before the interview is over, we have also covered how she first found herself delivering a eulogy at a funeral and from funeral celebrant it seemed a natural step for Anita to become a marriage celebrant.
When you meet Anita, you can instantly feel her warmth and capability of holding any ceremony, whether small or large. It makes me want to create a ceremony of some sort, just to have Anita be the celebrant. Seriously! So, if you feel the same, you can see photos of previous celebrations and get more information at Anita Stanfield Ceremonies.
Her cookbook and website, A Neater Way of Cooking, offers yummy and nutritious recipes that will satisfy friends and family, whether they are gluten and dairy free or not. (They won't be able to tell the difference!)

We start the interview with Francesca Leaton by acknowledging the changes that she has embraced within herself since becoming a Student of the Livingness. From a once extremely shy person who was terrified of speaking on a microphone to now being an educational presenter to medical staff, patients and the public, we find out how she made those changes.
Imagine being a resident nurse on cruise ships for five years, travelling around the world, visiting your favourite locations more than once. Well, Francesca doesn't have to imagine it because she has lived it. She shares some surprising details about life as a cruise ship nurse.
Now she works as a Heart Failure Liaison Clinical Nurse Specialist in hospital and in the community in northern NSW, on the east coast of Australia. In this section of the interview Francesca shares why she loves her work and we learn a fair bit about heart failure and the statistics of heart disease in Australia. We made the most of our 15 minutes!
Gayle is innately curious about people; how they see the world, how they position themselves in the world and why they do what they do. She loves interviewing people for these same reasons.
