Who else has ever eaten ice cream sitting between a Maori Shaman and a Buddhist monk? I’m sure I’m the first in history.
And I’ve always been comfortable with spiritual teachers; talking with the Masters as friends and living in quiet solitude with them.
I guess it’s from growing up with a mother who was a former nun and a father who loved the wilderness – I learned the power of stillness, observation and wonder.
Eleanor Dunne Carver
Grandmother Kee was one of the last traditionally trained Ojibway Medicine Women. I started apprenticing with her in the early 1980s.
Yogi Amrit Desai
I practiced consciousness transformation through yoga and meditation for over 30 years with Yogi Desai, who is recognized as one of the pioneers of the authentic teachings of yoga in the west. (Since before the yoga mat was invented! Or certified yoga teacher training existed.)
I have had extensive biofeedback and autogenic training with Elmer, Alyce and the Voluntary Controls Program at the Menninger Foundation beginning in 1985, continuing to the present.
Gladys Taylor McGarey
Born in 1920 and internationally recognized as the Mother of Holistic Medicine, Dr. McGarey’s work lives on through the Foundation of Living Medicine after 65 years as a physician. Knowing her most of my adult life, I consider Gladys to be one of my most respected mentors as a woman, mother, wise healer and voice of life for the world.
Norm holds several patents on innovative discoveries in medicine including the widely used TENS Unit for pain control. I have studied with Norm since 1986, and am a doctoral graduate of Holos University. He was a member of my dissertation committee and considers my work “groundbreaking.”
I have been highly influenced by Caroline’s work since meeting and training with her in the field of medical intuition since the mid-1980’s.
Named top business leader educator of the world, Dr. Goldsmith’s teachings are based in Buddhist philosophy. I first trained with Marshall in 2004 and continue on-going education, utilizing his concepts for executive coaching and facilitation.
Jaiya is one of the most progressive and well-educated sexual wellness experts. I recommend her teachings on sacred sexuality for those who want to use pleasure and intimacy in their journey of self-discovery and transformation.
Gail is a catalyst for soil health and today’s farmers’ mental health, especially related to political, financial and corporate pressures. I saw the Kansas prairie come back to life through the regenerative practices at work on the Fuller farm – the plants, insects, water, spongy soil, increased diversity of all kinds as well as resilient health of the farm animals. Through Gail’s and his partner Lynnette’s educational gatherings, I’ve also gained a deeper sense of the same barriers against those who practice solutions for our food production system as in all our essential social systems.
Raymond and I had a close, magical connection beginning before we ever met; it took us years to discover our own Grandmothers shared sacred song and ceremony together.
Federico designed the world’s first micro-processor for Intel, and founded and directed Zilog, Cygnet Technologies, Synaptics and acted as CEO of Foveon. He also founded the Federico and Elvia Faggin Foundation to support the scientific study of consciousness.
I’ve found Kasia’s principles of power dynamics not only highly influential in my personal life as a woman and woman scientist, but also applying the principles to the 4 phases of the creation process, such as symbiosis of bacteria and networking within soil systems. Kasia’s teachings have also influenced me to realize the qualities of desire, passion, life and love must be recognized in Unified Science to sustain the on-going of life.
My Grandmother named me Onani, which means Joy. When I was young, I was told I would teach others about joy. I had no idea what that meant until I was the furthest from joy I could imagine.
My life was anything but joy. I felt so lost, powerless, hopeless. I was nothing but a puddle on the floor. My teachers told me this time would come, but I had no idea the pain and confusion could be this deep. This is when I knew I had to really practice what the Masters had taught me.
