Yet again I strike gold in my search for interesting women to interview. Having an affinity for spirituality, foreign cultures, travel and adventures I came across yet another incredible woman, a true academic, an explorer from ‘darkest Peru’, an adventuress and a true ‘Mummy style’ investigator. With her background in the military, academia, and Peruvian spirituality Joan Parisi Wilcox is an exciting cocktail of the intellectual, socially ground breaking and deeply mystical. She is answering my questions in another of my interviews portraying daring, adventurous and awe-inspiring women.
As promised this is the Part TWO of the beautiful interview I had with Gurmukh. Here she gives further advice about male-female polarity and how to utilise these natural powers within our lives. Continue reading
In December last year I was very fortunate to be taught Kundalini Yoga by Gurmukh, one of the leading Kundalini teachers in the World today. I went to her course right here in the UK, in London. Amazingly, at seventy seven she is still writing, travelling the world and teaching. She is coming back to London this Autumn and I am looking forward to sharing her words with you.
I am prone to great changes and very much used to powerful experiences but even so was still not prepared for what took place after being on the course for a mere three days. As with every true and authentic experience and with the power of continuous practice, the months that followed turbo charged me and my life beyond my wildest expectations. The intense presence of beauty, the guidance from the unseen and the sense of finding a way to myself with incredible speed was overwhelming. However, I still had questions. I felt there was so much more. I knew Gurmukh would be coming back to the UK and I asked her if she would give me an interview. When she agreed, I was not sure at first what I should ask her, I just knew I had to do it. Continue reading
This is the Astrological view and an explanation of common life crises that might occur two or three times per average life, especially during the early 30’s or late 50’s. A helpful guide written by Chiron, our in house Astrologer. Continue reading
Recently I have been looking into alternative reality and by this I don’t mean alternatives to reality, whatever that might mean, but alternatives to our, Western idea of reality. Not only have I learned a lot, I’ve also realised that the key to all the problems we are experiencing as humanity is not in anything else but in the huge chasm between the materialistic worldview and the native one. This is perhaps the most important issue facing humanity in the 21st century. Continue reading
I’ve taken upon myself to make some really difficult choices and write about spiritual reads for women. Not because there are not enough of the books to be included but because there so many and some are just plain beautiful! If you revel in women’s spiritual wisdom from the likes of Denise Linn, Nancy Lonsdorf, Elizabeth Jenkins and every mama’s guru Gurmukh, treat yourself and read on! Continue reading
When I heard of Elizabeth Jenkins I thought, “Yeah just one more of those inspirational women.” Once I looked into it I realised she was completely in a league of her own! With quitting her Phd. and trekking through the treacherous Andean mountains to meet one of the rarest spiritual teachers of South America and becoming a world renewed spiritual teacher herself, to also becoming an organic farmer, famous writer, mother and successful business woman, Elizabeth is definitely one of a kind. I could not help but read all of her books in one breath and interview her, immediately! Continue reading
I wanted to see if there was anything awesome out there for kids and just as I was going to look it up I realised there was one place I would definitely find it. Under the bed! If you like the powerful works of Louise Hay and Dr Wayne Dyer you’ll want to check this out! Continue reading
He announces: First of all, the shaman wants you to know, no one has ever died during the Temazcal ritual. This, you must remember.
I was delighted to hear world famous writer, lecturer and spiritual teacher Denise Linn had agreed to do an interview with Berkshire Woman. I read Denise’s books for years and always learned something from them. This year Denise has written a new book with her daughter Meadow Linn which is just about to come out. I was interested to read and review this book, called ‘The Mystic cookbook’. Suffice to say I was intrigued by the idea of a spiritual kitchen and mindful cooking. (My review will be available online very soon.)
