When I first met Parisha Taylor, over 20 years ago, I knew nothing about her, except that my friend studied with her and thought the world of her. I was a skeptic. I had travelled the world looking for someone I could call ‘Teacher’, only to find that they were not the spiritual, ethical and powerful people that I thought they were. Needless to say, I was on the watch. As soon as I met her, the sincerity in her eyes, the care that she emanates and the gentle kindness with which she observed me gave me pause. Maybe she is the real person that I had thought never to find.

Then she spoke. She smiled, a little twinkle in her eye and asked me, “You are concerned about your beloved aren’t you”. After that, no worries. She is the real thing.
