I was eighteen, I left England and travelled to India where I met a
great teacher. After receving initiation, I lived in her ashrams
for nine years practising eastern spirituality. At twenty-eight, I left
the ashram and began my university career in the US. This
culminated in a PhD in English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
where I mentored young writers, taught literature, and wrote
about emotion and identity.
While in the US, I
combined my regular practice of meditation and Hatha Yoga with soulful
adventures in nature, training in life coaching and energy healing, and
ongoing participation in a group receiving channelled information.
These practices helped me balance the disproportionate emphasis on the
mind that academic work requires. After exploring some of the wondrous
and varied terrain in America, I returned to the country I left more
than twenty-six years ago. I just completed my first book, a memoir
about my travels and growing up in England.
