Why I came: My childhood was filled with the felt sense of a very, very close and loving presence always with me. I didn’t have a concept of God, so “friend” was my word for it. I knew I was held in absolute love. I also knew that this love was the secret answer to all the world’s ills and that I was here to share it.
The Path: My life has been a roadmap of expressing that love, step by step, within the full measure of a human life with all it’s peaks and valleys, challenges and heartbreaks. I know this was perfectly orchestrated so I could know first-hand how others felt and how to assist them on their journey. All along I have been graced with abilities of energy healing, clairaudience, clairvoyance and clairsentience and direct knowing.
Life before Life: The most profound awakening in this life occurred as a full-blown revelatory experience at age 16 when I was spontaneously taken into an experience of “life before life.” In brief, I was taken through my last death and in between life times where I disappeared in merger with God, nothing but God beyond all time and space, and eternally so. To my total surprise, I was then asked to come back to assist and led to the gate of birth before this life. From then on I knew what was really going on; no one on this earth could convince me otherwise.
Gifts of Grace: My affinity for all things spiritual always guided me, delving into deep studies of Advaita Vedanta, Ramana Maharshi’s teachings, and the multitude of other wonderful teachings such as: Taoism, Chan and Zen Buddhism, Celtic Spirituality, and many more. I met Adyashanti in 2000 just after my father passed away, I was again at the doorstep, ripe for further awakening. In a few short months the “I” dissolved completely into a full and lasting awakening to this infinite nature as consciousness. There are no separate awakened beings. Our own true nature is simply our birthright and natural state. It is the ocean of Satchitananda of which we are all an integral part. No fuss…
Teachings: I was soon after invited to share satsang within this lineage by Mokshananda, with Adya’s blessing. I joyfully did so for some years in Santa Cruz and Palo Alto. During this time, I received an inward initiation of my unique and divine expression and awakening to the truth and power of the Divine Mother. To really share on this, time is needed. But She is with me ever since, working through me, guiding me and empowering my work here.
There’s always more: At one point, finding no teachers in the body, I felt I wanted to take this further into living life instead of talking about it, and found a grounded way to do this in the study of Rudolf Steiner’s Anthroposophy and becoming a Waldorf Kindergarten teacher while raising my daughter. Children are the best teachers of love. My spiritual experiences at this point were largely developing through the higher realms where I was being taught at night in my wakeful sleep practices and deepening states of samadhi. This rich time of family life and deepening into the mystery and my own research has continued, as well as other studies, teachers and practices, including a immersive study of the Bhagadvat Gita, and a period of time in a clairvoyant training program to hone my skills as a clairvoyant reader/healer. For me the learning never ends. It is an ongoing spiral of life.
These days: I am called to share my time with you offering clairvoyant healing sessions, spiritual guidance, day-long intensives and retreats and weekly community satsangs. I call them Gatherings of Light where we are all giving and receiving satsang equally. I also love to chant with you in our occasional Sacred Music Evenings. My real interest is to empower you to awaken, and once awakened, to fully express yourself as this divine One, the Beloved itself.
