Therese OBeirne-

Therese OBeirne : I’m a budding writer with a plan to launch a series of books on people of faith from around the world, with the aim of promoting hope, acceptance, diversity and togetherness. We can no longer accept that people are judged for their religious beliefs. We are all the same, and deserve to be treated as such. Regardless of race, religion or culture all we all want to do is raise our children in a safe environment and live a happy life.

They will be simple books for everyday people to learn without all the heavy religious overtones: light, informative and quirky guides to different religions that I’ll explore – probably with a beer in hand!

Background

Having spent my twenties building my career in the corporate world and achieving success, I got lost, confused and overwhelmed with what it was I was actually meant to be doing. So I did what any damsel in distress would do -I bailed and moved to a land far far away.  No Job!  No Man!  No Idea!  So I’ve taken some time out of my ‘regular’ life to explore my passions and 7 months later on the beaches of Bali I came up with the idea!

My 3 passions in life are:

– People

– Faith

– Travel

I am on an Interfaith pilgrimage as it were, not only to learn and develop my own knowledge and acceptance of other religions, but to document and share my journey with the world. Hopefully from reading about my experiences with everyday people from around the world, I can offer some insight that might just educate those whom perhaps fear the unknown in their fellow man.

I’ll be in and out of Temples, Mosques, Churches, Synagogues &  pubs and who knows what else! I’ll be learning to pray in Arabic, Hebrew, Sanskrit and others along the way, as well as learning “one more beer please” in as many languages as needed. I’ll be spending my days immersing myself in the intriguing and intricate cultures of my fellow faithfuls in what I am sure is going to be the trip of a lifetime.

Never one to waste an opportunity, while I’m at it I’ll swing by some of the biggest festivals on earth – Carnivale in Rio anyone? Did someone say Mardi Gras? And simply because life is about living and experiencing as much as you can fit in! You’ll see The Unlikely Pilgrim on bended knee in the alters of the Vatican one day, followed by a weekend at Oktoberfest. It won’t be a drunken and debaucherous trip by any stretch of the imagination, but every day people certainly know how to party and I plan to meet them along the way!
