In Journey Beyond the Self: Vignettes of a Seeker's Life, she traverses the darkness of the psyche, bringing it to the light of consciousness and beyond. The vignettes take the reader on a journey to enlightenment through words, inspirations, poems and dreams as Dr Martin seeks to answer life's great questions: Who am I, why am I here and what is the purpose of this life?

Have you ever felt totally free? With nothing to worry about, not a care in the world, nothing to lose and nowhere you have to be? Have you ever done something totally reckless, just because you can? Clive and Mandy Richmond know that feeling. In 1979 they left on a trip around Australia. They set off in an HQ Holden station wagon with all their worldly possessions, not much money, no real plans and no real idea where we were going. They worked their way around Australia, and then just kept on going around again. During that time they married and raised two kids. Between them, they have had about one hundred jobs.
They lived and worked on seven cattle stations, were married on one of them, and generally lived and worked in remote areas or country towns. There were good times and bad, and some dark, dangerous days that they were lucky to survive. But overall, it has been a great life – unrestrained and untameable, never burning a bridge, and yet full of the adventure of new horizons and that addictive feeling of freedom. You could call them gypsies, drifters, wanderers, lost souls or whatever, and you would probably be right.

Awakening to Spirit: Investigations into contemplative and ecstatic practices in the healing of human consciousness
Dr Juliette Lachemeier
Despite unprecedented advances in technology, education, economic growth and material wealth, experience is showing that we have never been so stressed, paranoid and disconnected from God, nature and life’s greater meaning. To reconnect with these essential aspects of ourselves, it is becoming increasingly important to take individual responsibility for aligning ourselves with a more transpersonal awareness. Awakening to Spirit, a doctoral research project, delivers scientifically, neurologically and psychologically substantiated spiritual practices suitable to, and more easily integrated with, our present-day culture and demands.
Surprisingly, it was the shock of motherhood to the author’s previously ordered life that provided the catalyst for this research, given the difficulties she faced in integrating her former spiritual practices into this new chaos. The resulting research and metaphysical journey detailed in this work is an informative read for anyone interested in furthering their understanding of the nature of consciousness and reconnecting to the divine source of all awareness.

Dr Juliette Lachemeier
Inspired by the author’s own lifelong search to answer life’s bigger questions, and drawing deeply from the wisdom contained in the seminal teachings of A Course in Miracles and The Science of Mind, this controversial thesis takes the reader on a journey through the spiritual life and teachings of Jesus Christ to answer life's major existential and theological questions: Why are we here, where did we come from, what is the nature of our existence and where are we going? Dr Lachemeier explains that there are great universal truths governing us all, but without an understanding of our truer natures, these truths are often obscured by the seemingly random inconsistencies experienced by the physical body, along with the alternating misfortunes and successes that befall it. Her thesis also initiates a treatise on metaphysics and motherhood, exposing the collective difficulties Western mothers face when engaging in traditional practices for cultivating a relationship with Spirit.
