Her teachers



"Divine happiness, even the tiniest particle of a grain of it, never leaves one again; and when one attains to the essence of things and finds one's Self--this is supreme happiness. When it is found, nothing else remains to be found; the sense of want will not awaken anymore, and the heart's torment will be stilled forever. Do not be satisfied with fragmentary happiness, which is invariably interrupted by shocks and blows of fate; but become complete, and having attained to perfection, be YOURSELF."

— Sri Anandamayi Ma

“We as a human group have a very dark past. Wars, oppression, control, and cruelty to each other. We are afraid of that which is inside of us. The way to evolve from this lower consciousness is to understand our humanity. To practice allowing compassion and unconditional love to flow in from our Higher Self, into that which is our lower nature. God touching Human on Planet Earth! It is the perfect recipe for Enlightenment, which is eternal Peace and Freedom for our souls.”

— Brenna Iset

"Your deepest roots are in nature. No matter who you are, where you live, or what kind of life you lead, you remain irrevocably linked with the rest of creation."
