Carmel Higgins

I was born in Campbellton, New Brunswick during the “Great Depression”, grew up in Coal Branch Kent County, and was raised in the Roman Catholic tradition.  My parents were of Acadian decent.

In 1998, as part of my quest for meaning, I was led to Sophia Center at Holy Names University in Oakland California, where I studied what is being hailed as the “new cosmology” and Earth literacy.  My two books, “Cosmic Fire/Local Sparks” and “Beyond Theism” reflect this spiritual quest. 

I am a regular columnist for the Moncton Times & Transcript.  It is titled Hearts and Minds and appears on the commentary page every other Tuesday.

I am a retired homemaker and now reside in Moncton, New Brunswick.
