I believe each new teacher I’ve encountered has brought his or her own unique perspective and gifts to the spiritual community. I’ve also found that different teachers have resonated with me at different times along my path. As they say “when the student is ready, the teacher appears.”
So today, I offer you a list of some of my favorite spiritual teachers (in no particular order).
If you are looking for a spiritual “lift” scan down the list and select the teacher that sounds most appealing in this moment. Whichever name you gravitate to is the best selection. Then, do a little searching and find a book, quote, movie or video clip by this teacher and read or watch. Let your intuition guide you to receive the teachings that are right for you!
