As I wrote in my first post (June 15, 2010) I want to use this blog for the discussion of the practical applications of spirituality in an attempt to better understand who we really are. Other topics like yoga, meditation, and astrology will show up on occasion.
I have had many incarnations in this lifetime (haven’t we all?) from school teacher to freelance writer to public access television to yoga instructor and astrologer. I guess you can say that the common thread to my life has been a search for truth and a need to communicate.
My degree is in chemistry, which I currently teach on the high school level along with trigonometry and pre-calculus. I am a certified yoga instructor (since 1994 through White Lotus Foundation) and have studied yoga philosophy, meditation and astrology for nearly 25 years. I love practicing and teaching yoga, continuing to teach adults as well as the students at my school. My study of astrology led me to Noel Tyl’s Master’s Degree Certification Program, which I completed with honors in 2003.
I did some freelance writing and public access television in the 1980s, which led to a position in the audio/video department at the National Headquarters of the Theosophical Society. I worked on videos for the Society’s “Eternal Quest” series as well as various audio projects.
In 2001, my spiritual seeking brought me to the study of the non-dualistic philosophies of Advaita Vedanta under the tutelage of my teacher.
