juliaWhen 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.
