Her most recent book is Heaven on Earth. Stephanie's rare skill is to go to the heart of issues that affect us all and to bring her wisdom to them in ways that are original, thoughtful yet always accessible. For many years Stephanie was the Inner Life columnist for Good Weekend magazine, in the Sydney Morning Herald and the Age.

Of Heaven on Earth, musician Clare Bowditch writes: Since I was a teenager, Stephanie Dowrick's work has been absolutely central to my understanding of curiosity, spirit, faith and the possibility of happiness. The wisdom in her pages has comforted me in dark times and brought me insights that I fear I may otherwise have missed. With deep intelligence and enormous heart, Stephanie has created a companion for anyone seeking beauty, comfort and insight.
