About Lari

Lari Snorek-Yates Christian Science Practitioner
One summer, I found myself without any paid work while living in France. Living overseas was a transformative experience that awakened a deep desire to dedicate my life to healing for the world. This began a journey of learning more about my relationship to divine Love and how this filled me in ways I had never imagined. In 1997, I was accepted to take an in-depth course on healing according to the practice of Christian Science, and this was life-changing for me. It clarified that whatever work I did in the world, I knew I wanted it to be from a deep place of spiritual purpose and with a focus on bringing light and healing to the lives of others.

In 1999, I became trained in mediation and conflict resolution and volunteered in small claims court. This was a deeply meaningful opportunity that taught me how quickly methodologies and skills can be exhausted and how important it is to let peace be realized, rather than trying to create or build it. I opened my first office as a Christian Science practitioner in 2001 to begin helping others find healing and regeneration. My journey into healing work began deepening when I was a Masters candidate for Sustainable Development at the World Learning SIT Graduate Institute. My graduate work focused on issues of social justice and community action, and my research focused on looking at the impact of building communities based on spiritual principles and values. Seeing oneness and connection between people made me want to delve more into understanding a deep spiritual reality that transcended all material limitations. After completing my degree, I began teaching at the graduate school and worked with students from all over the world to help them find their voice through their writing and research skills. I also taught courses in gender and development. All during this time, I saw how each opportunity was an unfolding of learning more about healing for my community and for the world.

In 2009, I moved to Boston to work for The First Church of Christ, Scientist as their Africa Liaison. Over the next 5 years, I traveled and spent many weeks in over ten countries in Africa before leaving to spend all my time on my practice and to begin lecturing for groups around the world.

I am currently based in Boston and am available to give talks in French and English. To see published writings, click on “Inspiration” above or go to jsh.christianscience.com.
