Jacquelyn E. Lane
My writing focuses primarily on the dance between our spiritual nature and its human personality expression and how that in turn affects our relationship with Nature.
I am a New Zealand author, artist and educator, supporting my work with nearly fifty years of metaphysical studies and a wealth of overseas living and travel. I have a social science degree but, while sorely tempted to continue in academia, I opted to pursue careers in both art and writing.
My latest book, DEVA: Our Relationship with the Subtle World was shortlisted for the 2019 Ashton Wylie Unpublished Manuscript Awards. It is now a Findhorn Press book, (pub. Inner Traditions, USA). I have also written and illustrated The Children of Gaia, an eco-spiritual novel on the problems facing the forests of the world and their deva inhabitants; illustrated a children’s book, Once in a Blue Moon (Random House NZ); and scribed This World of Echoes: A Divine Guide to Being Human.
I share both my understanding of metaphysics and artistic expertise via talks and workshops. I joined NZSA some years ago after relinquishing membership of the Society of Authors (UK) when I moved back to New Zealand after several years overseas.
