A Note from Guest Editor Teresa Palmer

A Note from Guest Editor Teresa Palmer

BY Teresa Palmer

I am thrilled to have been asked to be the guest editor for The Conversation. Last year during a particularly trying time in my life I discovered “The Conversation” television series. It was truly a Godsend. Every week I would watch the show with my girlfriend (whilst eating some awesome dessert) and then after we would spend hours talking about this unique, thought provoking and inspiring program and the issues it raised. I instantly felt connected to Amanda- her openness and bravery, her wisdom and just the beautiful spirit that she is.

I was lucky enough to be put in contact with her through a mutual friend and we immediately became like soul sisters, in fact, Amanda was an amazing source of guidance and support when I launched my own wellness and conscious living website YourZenLife with my friend, fellow Aussie actress Phoebe Tonkin.

I am so excited to be collaborating with Amanda and this month I will be focusing my articles on friendship as well as lessons learned and lessons I continue to learn. I encourage this wonderful network of readers to continue The Conversation and share your own stories with each other in the comments section below the articles. We can all be each others healers, teachers, therapists and friends.

Amanda has brought so much joy, inspiration, laughter and light to my life in so many ways and I am so proud to know her the way I do and even more proud to see what she is doing for all women around the world through the uplifting, inspiring and positive community that is The Conversation.

Love,
Teresa Palmer
