I began meditating in 1976 with instruction and from the start meditation has been easy for me. Years later I met a Zen monk who taught me to the best of his ability for two and a half years. One day he told me that I had learned all he could teach me, that I must leave and find another teacher.
My father died 47 days later and the following week I met a Shaman named Darian Crowe. I worked closely with Darian for 7 years as his student; his teaching opened me to a dimension of life that I did not know existed. He was the first to notice that I knew how to uplift and help people out of some sort of memory. I worked successfully with mental patients, cancer patients, children with Cerebral Palsy, and others who needed various kinds of help. Of everything the most intense experience has been working with those who were making the transition from this life to beyond, this is the main focus of shamanism: the transition through death. I worked as a shaman for eight years in Northern California.
Then I was drawn to study different aspects of eastern spirituality and I worked with a number of teachers over the next few years. On December 16th 2006 through a very magical experience over great distance and time I found a Buddhist teacher and I spent the next two and a half years in her monastery in Canada.
A little over two years ago I met my Guru for the first time, I took a class and from a video initiation I had by far the deepest meditative experience of this lifetime. I then went to his ashram and participated in all the spiritual processes that he offers and his awareness and grace allowed me to Awaken on May 28, 2010, two years ago this week. Life changed and within six months I began helping others to awaken.
I was born and raised on Long Island, New York. I attended Hofstra University where I received my B.A. in Liberal Arts with focuses in Political Science, Psychology and Fine Arts. While in school I discovered Yoga and Meditation; and started to practice regularly. I found a new found sense of self-love and awareness. From there I went to India and got my 500-hour Yoga Teacher certification as well as an Ayurvedic Therapist Certification, Reflexology certification and Acupressure certification. After India I lived on the beautiful island of Kauai where I lived and worked on an organic farm. Later, I moved to Phoenix where I studied Hypnotherapy and got certified as a Hypnotherapist. Next, I moved to San Diego where I met my current boyfriend and spiritual teacher, Bob Fadem, who took me on a vision quest and changed my life forever. He also introduced me to Sadhguru and the Isha Foundation; which has taken me down an ever deeper path of Yoga and Spirituality. I was awakened on Oct. 30 2010, through Bob’s transmission of Divine Grace
