Thinking of my mother and the world that she lived in. The 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's were unique and fascinating decades. My favorite was the 60's. I love studying timelines and delving into history. I have scores of letters that my parents wrote to each other during World War II.
Time does fly! Dragonfly Den is nearly completed while shamanism continues to "chase" me in a synchronistic manner. I just shared this story with a facebook friend. Brigitte Elerick and I are former Muktananda devotees. We and others share fond memories of the "magical" years that we spent with a profoundly incomprehensible Shaktipat Guru.

I'm learning to refrain from attempting to fix situations that others find themselves in. It has been a challenge for me to disengage with compassion. I love friends and family dearly.

Manoharan Says: Psychology is both art and craft. Many of the people that practice psychology, particularly research psychologists, have little to do with people. They analyze statistics, polls, tests, chemistry and additional data. The meaning of psychology is "knowledge of the soul". Great many psychologists have completely forgotten that. Most students of psychology, possibly 90%, never hear or understand the meaning of the word. Steven Doyle, PhD Practicing Shaman at Ravens Haven
