Autobiography of a Yogini: A Black Woman's Love Affair with her Guru
AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A YOGINI tells the story of my mystical and personal 7-year relationship with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, world renown and one of India's top Gurus. I wasn't raised to become a devotee or follower. I was a Black-American, single mother who was raised by a black single mother. Education had been my path to enlightenment, pulling me up out of a chaotic childhood. With a psychology degree from UC Berkeley and a Ph.D. in Education from UCLA, I spent 20 years in the ashram of higher education. Although I had studied God, I was completely unprepared for contacting God the way I did through this powerful spiritual leader and world figure who has over twenty million followers. Intellectual pursuits became irrelevant as I was consumed by an extraordinary relationship with a man who could read my mind and make his thoughts my own. Unbelievable spiritual powers opened within me. I became able to see, hear, and connect to the Divine at will. The unveiling of these powers were a continual source of surprise to me, as they expanded my consciousness of this world. But all of this transcendence occurred against a backdrop of heartache. Although he and I were living out this ancient love inside one of the largest spiritual organizations in the world, we were also just a man and a woman.
