NO LIMITS IN LIMITLESS MIND

A CONVERSATION WITH MARCEIL DELACY

From the November 2010 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The resume reads wide. Stints as an actress, organic gardener, drummer. Volunteer in Afghan refugee camps in Pakistan, and at a center for recovering addicts in Seattle, Washington.

And in her early twenties, there was a brief wilderness period for this lifelong Christian Scientist, in which she came under the influence of a guru in New York City. "Some people call Christian Science a cult. But believe me, I know what a cult is," Marceil DeLacy laughs, "because I was part of one. It's about control. Not about the complete freedom Christian Science gives us to think for ourselves."

She traces that freedom back to childhood. "I was a really quiet kid, not verbal at all, but when the subject hit upon Christian Science, I was right in there."
