After much thought, 2020 will be the last year of the Ashton Wylie Mind Body Spirit Book Awards. The Trust gives thanks and appreciation to all those who have generously given their time to the Awards over the years and to the writers whose work has contributed significantly to our thinking and understanding of mind body spirit ideas.
The Awards - which ran for 17 years - provided a platform for some of New Zealand’s best-known writers in the genre. Previous Book category winners include Dame Joy Cowley, Professor Lloyd Geering, Professor Niki Harre, Professor Murray Rae and Dr Brian Broome.
The unpublished manuscript category offered the stepping stone many aspiring writers needed to get their work published.
