And, surprised as she was, that moment changed her life.
Finding her way to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Transcendental Meditation, she ultimately became a celibate monk and spent the next eight years in meditation for up to 10 hours a day. In the silence she awakened to God's presence through a state of extreme bliss.
