"Perhaps the deepest, most unknown ambiguous loss shared by both women and men is the loss of knowledge, awareness and direct experience of the Divine."
– Sheila Foster
I urge you to read this narration, consisting of excerpts from her spiritual memoir Carry the Fire; It is one of the most riveting accounts of spiritual transformation that I have ever encountered. Sheila's story includes deep suffering, miraculous healing, and emergence into the role of helper for many undergoing spiritual transformation today. Kundalini itself plays a major role in her unfolding process, sometimes painful, sometimes filled with bliss.
It is a profound read, and will leave you with much to think about.
Sheila is an experienced therapist and is especially helpful with those undergoing Kundalini awakening. She has traveled the route and knows the signposts. We are lucky to have her in our global community and I feel especially fortunate that she lives in Boulder, where I also live. She does long distance counseling as well as in person, since space as such is no barrier in today's world.

She embodies awakening to the truth of what is and offers that transmission in each and every encounter.
