Lauralee resides on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia, with her husband Lee and two daughters. Lauralee shares her story, it is raw but real, a journey through depression and anxiety.
Her background is a blend of Health Science and Outdoor Education and her passion lies in the journey between inspiring others towards and then the attainment of, living an astonishing life. In this book, Lauralee not only shares the personal heartache of her experiences, but offers expert advice and practical application for health and well being.
‘My journey is still that, a journey, some days I am living a life of astonishing joy and other days I am left astonished at the elusive nature of joy - nevertheless my joy is full whether I ‘feel’ it or not. My soul is anchored in a joy so deep that it cannot be moved no matter what storms rage across the ocean of life’.
After the loss of twin baby girls and then a baby boy, Lauralee suffered severe depression and deep despair. She did not think it would be possible to survive such tragedy, let alone that her life would return to one filled with peace and happiness, but Lauralee has triumphed over adversity and her story and her hope now brings comfort to others.

Healing for the Spirit through the Creative Art Workshop with Froyle Neideck.
Explore your creative expression through mixed media techniques. When we are free to create from our heart, we allow ourselves to really celebrate our own uniqueness and this inspires hope, releases healing and we gain a greater understanding of our true identity. No experience necessary. You will be guided by professional artist Froyle Neideck, as you create a beautiful artwork to take home.
Healing for the Soul through the Floral Art Workshop with Dezley Hughes.
Flowers, like a beautiful garden, bring joy and healing through beauty, colour and fragrance. This workshop will inspire you to see the beauty in everyday. Using what is in the garden, combined with market flowers, you will create a beautiful floral work of art to delight all the senses. Dezley will encourage you to stop, see the beauty and have some fun, while learning a few easy skills to enjoy floral arranging.
