Words by Bhakati
A head-on motor vehicle accident over twenty years ago left me catastrophically injured.
Every bone in my face was broken, and my left leg was in 16 pieces. In the aftermath, I had a bleed in the brain and still have left-sided weakness, without the use of my left hand.
However, I survived the multiple trauma, and I continue, slowly and steadily, to heal and love life!
There have been wonderful healers along the way; my beautiful chestnut horse, K.C., and Big Shakti have been the major factors in my onward journey.
Having been a student of Sri Chinmoy since 1978, I knew the importance of meditation, and especially relaxation, so I began with Big Shakti’s guided relaxation meditations.
I moved away from group meditations after Sri Chinmoy’s death, and I was longing for new supportive teachers and community.
Big Shakti’s online courses and seminars not only helped me to meditate more regularly, but they also gave me a renewed sense of connection to a global community. I felt a strong heart connection with Swami Shankardev and Jayne Stevenson.
