Lee Day

Lee Sturgeon Day was born in England in 1941 and educated in England, Italy and France. She was personal assistant to Sir John Betjeman (Britain’s Poet Laureate) for 3 years. Other activities have included: traveling, writing food guides, managing a London Coffee House, therapy and social work, farming, and flamethrowing in a circus.

Lee is a counselor and adult educator, co-founder of the Center for Social Development, England, based on the work of Rudolf Steiner, and Lifeways for Healing Education, Detroit. She has led workshops since l975, and teaches in many Waldorf Teacher Training programs. In 1987 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her book, A SLICE OF LIFE, describes her journey towards healing through anthroposophic medicine, notably mistletoe therapy, widely and successfully used in Europe. Mistletoe therapy was approved as a homeopathic remedy, and now, 33yrs later, is going through the first clinical trials at Johns Hopkins for treating cancer. The second edition of A Slice of Life is now available on Amazon.com, together with a Kindle edition.

Several years ago, a minor surgery led to damage to Lee’s vocal cords and a total loss of her voice for 2 years. TELL ME THE NAMES OF YOUR FRIENDS AND I WILL TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE (Arab proverb) is an account of this journey through her email correspondence with her friends.

Lee currently lives in California. She has a son, Adam, and two granddaughters.
