Alex is a Christian Science practitioner from Paris, France. He practiced law in France and in the United States for several years. During those legal years, Alex got more and more interested in Christian Science. He says, "At first, I was just impressed by its remarkable healings and resolutions. But as I dug deeper, I found a profound spirituality. To me back then, religion and spirituality meant accepting a system of beliefs and the letting go of discernment and critical thinking. But the more I studied and practiced this deep spirituality, the more I found that it was … about exercising critical thinking in understanding spiritual concepts, which in turn could be applied to one’s life to bring healing."
