"Yoga and meditation are my refuge."
I began practicing Hatha Yoga at the age of 16. The next year, 1968, I met with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to become initiated into the practice of Transcendental Meditation. In those days we meditated for an hour a day. As an adult, I explored different religions and sought out different styles of meditation practice. I worked and supported myself through nursing school. I spent a lot of time hiking in nature, abalone and scuba diving in the ocean, or gardening. I married a European who wanted to travel the world. We took our back packs and continuously traveled the world for nearly a year. I later explored different healing techniques such as toning, shamanic healing, dream work, hypnotism, and healing with colors. I organized a community discussion group for the Institute of Noetic Sciences for 5 years to explore spirituality and science. In the process of returning to college for a BSN, I began doing energy work called Jin Shin Jyutsu. I traveled to join Native American spiritual gatherings in different states over the US to absorb native wisdom. I especially enjoy exploring intuition or inner ways of knowing. I have worked in nursing for 44 years and continue to work full time as an RN.
