Olivia Newton-John has turned to a US mystic to help her heal after battling breast cancer and the mysterious disappearance of her long-time partner Patrick McDermott.
The darling of Australian music will pay tribute next week to the woman described as her "spiritual guru", Caroline Myss, at a Sydney conference on life-coaching.
Promoters said the Chicago-based author, who will host her Entering The Castle seminar at Darling Harbour on August 11, has been "guiding Olivia through her dramas".
The lecture relates to Myss' book of the same name, which promises to lead followers on "an inner path to the divine and your soul".
A contemporary of international self-help guru Deepak Chopra, Myss will tell Australian audiences about her theories on the "mystical landscapes of our lives".
A convert to Myss' theory of becoming a "mystic without a monastery", Newton-John has dedicated her latest CD Grace and Gratitude to the American author and agreed to perform at her day-long Darling Harbour seminar for free.
The Aussie star, who returned to Australia last month for a charity commitment, is currently resting at her private health retreat in Byron Bay but has promised to join Myss on the Sydney leg of her book tour.
She turned to alternative help after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992.
It is understood she sought Myss' support through her more recent crisis, after her long-time partner disappeared off the coast of Los Angeles in July last year.
