Susan Shumsky 🚀 184
👯 February 3, 2014
I’m so excited to speak to Dr. Susan Shumsky, our guest for this Monday night. I used to listen to her very informative and uplifting talks when she spoke on Pacifica Radio Network KPFK back in the late nineties when I was working on the internet late into the night.
Here is her bio: The 66-year old adventurer (who claims meditation keeps her young) has distinguished herself by her striking successes through living life on her own terms through her own inner truths. Daughter of a surgeon, this genius-IQ, straight-A student left her conservative home in 1966 for the infamous hippie mecca, Haight-Ashbury.
After learning to meditate while attending art college, she found herself on the riverbanks of the Ganges in India, where Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, famous guru of the Beatles and of Deepak Chopra, personally trained her to teach yoga and meditation.
For 22 years Dr. Shumsky lived in Maharishi’s ashrams (residential learning institutions) in remote, secluded areas of the Himalayan Mountains of India, the Swiss Alps, and the Heartland of America. She served on Maharishi’s personal staff for seven of those years. In the ashram, she often meditated up to 20 hours a day, never emerging from her room up to 8 weeks at a time. She often practiced continuous silence, not speaking to anyone for up to 4 months. She fasted up to 2 months at a time and practiced complete celibacy for decades. After leaving the ashram in 1989, she spent another 24 years studying New Thought and metaphysics. For 20 years Dr. Shumsky was a successful jewelry designer for New York diamond jewelry manufacturers.
After receiving a Doctor of Divinity degree from Teaching of Intuitional Metaphysics, founded by Dr. Peter V. Meyer of San Diego, Dr. Shumsky began teaching her own unique form of meditation and spiritual healing. Dr. Shumsky is the founder of Divine Revelation®, a complete technology for contacting the divine presence and listening to the inner voice. Divine Revelation is not a theoretical practice, but a proven, time-tested system that has worked for tens of thousands of students worldwide.” 🚀
