The Healer’s Internship and a Weekend at Albany

For the past eighteen months I have been in a program called The Transformational Healer’s Program as an Intern to the Enlightened Master Sai Maa Lakshmi Devi. Mary Sise started this program with Sai Maa and I feel so honored to be a part of it.

I went to Albany, NY  last year to attend an event with Mary Sise LCSW, DCEP.  Mary was to give what are called Personal Sessions to individuals at the event. Mary Sise does Sai Maa Personal Energy Sessions.I am getting ready to go again this month June 18th through the 21st. I am so looking forward to this!!

Sai Maa is a spiritual luminary and global humanitarian,  who gifted her massage table and the Shakti of her personal energy sessions to Mary, who has been a student of Sai Maa for almost 15 years and serves as Director of the Transformational Healers Program. This reflects the importance of the continuation of Sai Maa’s energetic healing legacy for the world and Mary’s role in this work. Sai Maa has a mission of global enlightenment through personal transformation and self-mastery.

Sai Maa shared this announcement while addressing 170 participants at an advanced workshop for healers on May 9, 2014 in Albany, NY.

The Personal Sessions are a transference, clearing and raising of our own energetic fields which have the effect of giving the receiver a conscious experience of what can only be called “heaven”.

Mary Sise is a very interesting and amazing woman herself.I am going to quote from her website here…” An international speaker, teacher, counselor, and author known for her pioneering work in the field of energy psychology relating to the treatment of trauma, and her work in exploring the spiritual dimension of the soul and its integral relationship to authentic healing. Her warm, witty, and authentic approach makes her a frequently sought after speaker.

Condensing years of work and innovations in the field, Mary co-authored the ground-breaking book The Energy of Belief: Psychology’s Power Tools to Focus Intention & Release Blocking Beliefs with psychologist Sheila Sidney Bender, PhD. She has developed several teaching and self-help tools. ” Mary’s website is at

Our Healer’s Internship program has been the most wonderful Journey I have ever undertaken.


A Share for you from the Sai Maa blog I wrote

Arriving at the Denver Program the last event of Sai-Maa’s Passion Tour, I am drawn to the bookstore and there a large photograph of Maa, a close up of Sai Maa’s beautiful smile and loving eyes. My heart is so full and tears came readily as I sit with what can only be one of the most powerful photographs of Maa at Shivarartri.

This was the last stop on the Passion Tour with Sai Maa. The hall, completely full with standing room only. Many seeing Sai Maa for the first time. With Maa’s arrival my heart is bursting with joy and gratitude. My tears flow; these are tears that clear the way to my heart of hearts, opening my whole self, allowing it to be filled with that divine love, that divine Grace that just is, in Maa’s Presence.

Watching the many people go up to Maa to receive her Darshan I see how very generous Maa is of herself. How much Maa gives to us to raise our vibration, to educate us, and take us to the experience of the Divine within.

I am blessed to receive Maa’s Darshan, and Maa upon looking at the photograph I present for blessing says, “Oh Shivarartri, very powerful.” I am again in Maa’s Grace, which I remember each time I see in my mind’s eye this precious moment, face to face with her.

There is nothing so precious as being in the presence of Sai Maa. When Maa said “for those of you who are in pain, give it to me” my tears flowed, tears at the kindness and generosity of Sai Maa. Tears of joy, tears of love and devotion, welling from deep within. Those tears that come in the Presence of Maa are like no other.

Sai Maa’s Successors, Joey Klein, Lucinda Hanover, and Adam Rizvi, speak of new possibilities to step into. Possibilities of a much deeper relationship with the Divine. Joey speaks of discipline in the practice of one’s sadhana. The importance of physical and mental strength, of conscious thinking, and I am so glad that I have created a workout schedule that I can stick to and a daily sadhana . We meditate, and I see a golden light. When we dance, my feet are so light. The whole room is alive with happiness.

It is a “ turning point day” for me.

I was honored to be asked to write the blog article on my teacher Sai Maa’s Passion Tour stop in Denver, CO.

Kumbh Mela Continued

There is a lot that happened over the two weeks that I was at the Kumbh and my few days in New Delhi. Such an opportunity to immerse oneself into the Divine Presence of our Divine Creator, in meditation, Darshan and the many Ceremonies at the shabir do not come often during one’s life unless of course you are a student of Sai Maa or Mataji as she is known in India. I would like to speak a bit here about Mataji. Mataji holds the title Jagadguru in India which is rarely bestowed on anyone let alone a woman Guru. She is of the line of Sathya Sai Baba a highly revered and world renowned spiritual leader. Sai Baba left his body in 2011.
Sai Maa is a spiritual luminary with a mission of global enlightenment through practical spirituality and personal transformation eliminating the pain and suffering of humanity.

The first ceremony which I encountered at the Shabir was the Yagna. A fire ceremony with chanting by the priests and offering to the fire one’s prayers for whatever specific cause that particular yagna was being performed. A Yagna lasts 24 hours and is a beautiful and serious ceremony with, in my personal experience, lasting and immediate results. Here are some photographs of a yagna.
