Women of the World



guru rattana



A personal note from Guru Rattana


In my twenties and thirties, as I pursued my academic and professional life, it became increasingly clear to me that our current political-economic system was not leading us to the realization of the ideals that it gave lip service to. I realized that the state of consciousness of the men and women was the key factor in facilitating or impeding real transformation. Responding to this realization, in my early forties I decided to devote my life to helping people find high meaning, heal their wounds, and achieve higher states of conscious awareness by connecting with the love in their own hearts.

In l986 I began giving empowerment workshops on The Art and Science of a Successful Woman, Relax and Renew, Quick Stress Reduction, Meditation for Modern Living and Sexuality and Spirituality. I also collaborated with one of my students, Ann Marie Maxwell to write four Kundalini yoga and meditation manuals which were some of the first published on this heretofore unknown technology brought to the West by Yogi Bhajan.

In my late forties, my creative gift for writing moved to another level. I began passionately writing essays in verse format. These books, of which The Destiny of Women is the Destiny of the World is the first to be published, now total more than twenty. These books on women, men, relationships, the soul, ecology and the state of the world explore how to embrace our humanity, process our emotions, and elevate our consciousness ie. heal ourselves and the world.

Now in my early fifties, my dream is to connect more profoundly with the Divine, open my heart to myself and others, share my wisdom and love with the world, and expand my collaboration with others in creating a peaceful future as we honor the feminine power in both men and women.
