Your Holistically Curious Hosts

Namaste’ friends!  I grew up in an Air Force Family, and as a result of overseas assignments, was exposed to numerous cultures and beliefs. These travels planted the seed that has germinated into a life long journey of learning and spiritual growth.

I have a Master’s Degree in Metaphysical Sciences and am the Founder of The Aum Nation.  I am a certified yoga teacher, Level 2 iRest meditation teacher and Reiki Master.

When I am not working on Holistically Curious or The Aum Nation, I chill out with my wonderful Hubby, 2 amazing sons, 3 beautiful grandchildren, and 4 super snuggly fur babies (3 cats and 1 chihuahua who thinks he is a cat.)

 

One of my favorite quotes is by Mahatma Gandhi.  He said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow.  Learn as if you were to live forever.”  Well, I must admit I can use some work adhering to the first part of this quote but as far as the second half goes…I am 100% on it!  Granted, I have the memory of a gnat and I am sure I have forgotten most of what I have learned but the passion and desire is always there to learn more and to relearn what I may have forgotten.  I hope you will join us on this wild ride as we journey into the vast expanse of holistic knowledge.

Hello Loveys!  If you are reading this, it means that you are Holistically Curious and therefore a kindred spirit!  In my journey for a whole and healthy life, I have drawn from my experiences traveling around the world, as well as from the amazing people I have met along the way.  Thank you for being one of those amazing people.

In a quest to enhance my own knowledge of the world around me, I have obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies (Literature and Humanities, mainly) and attend The University of Metaphysical Sciences.  Because life is full of little surprises, I am also a Third Degree Blackbelt in Tang Soo Do.

Transitioning from a city mouse to a country mouse, I have recently moved to a rural town in Maine where I live happily with my husband, 4 dogs, and a cat.  I miss the community of light-seekers which seemed readily available among the larger population of my previous home but I am inspired by pure spirits, wherever I find them, and happily I find them in the most unlikely places.
