By the age of 12, Beverly was far from your usual young girl, having already lost her beloved brother to leukemia, her father to alcoholism, and her mother to depression. Alone in her home, with no one to turn to, subjected to intense psychological abuse, along with physical and sexual abuse, she spent most of her free time in empty churches, in deep prayer and meditation. She found constructive outlets for her pain through fierce engagement with tennis, academics, and the study of the Tarot and I Ching.
At the age of 13, she was transformed and empowered with a clear, unabated vision of the Christ. He literally called her out of the Catholic church during her confirmation ceremony. When she left the ceremony and went outside in answer to His call, He instructed her to follow His teachings directly, not the teachings of the church. She did this immediately and began her spiritual studies on the direct teachings of Jesus Christ. Spontaneous moments of rapture follow her to this day.
At the age of 16, she left home, moved across country, and put herself through school at the University of California, graduating with a degree in Psychobiology.
At the age of 25, she received a profound and dramatic awakening of her kundalini energy through Gurumayi Chidvilasananda, Swami Muktananda’s heir to the Siddha Yoga lineage. Later that year she took refuge with His Holiness Tai Situ Rinpoche, who was considered to be the emanation of the Maitreya Buddha, and began her study of Tibetan Buddhism under his guidance and the guidance of the Venerable Lama Tenzin of Paia, Maui. Her home later hosted a succession of visiting Tibetan teachers. These included, Sogyal Rinpoche and His Eminence Jamgon Kongtrul-considered the emanation of Manjushri, in addition to other princes and rinpoches of the Tibetan lineage.
At age 26, after meeting, studying with, and being personally mentored by Dr. Lex Hixon, an international scholar and renowned author of comparative religions, she received grace again in the form of a vision of His Holiness Sri Ramakrishna, during which His Holiness gave her a book and told her that this was the book she now needed. It was The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna. Dr. Hixon then gifted her with the book in physical form, and she read it’s 1000+ pages three times. Shortly thereafter, she met and was invited by Gurumayi to visit her ashram in India. Wanting to anchor and embody these life changing events, Beverly decided to accept this invitation and make an extended trip to India.
She lived at Gurumayi’s ashram in Ganeshpuri, near Bombay; traveling throughout India on pilgrimage and immersing herself in many sacred teachings, teachers, and places- including the home of the original Satya Sai Baba. Upon returning from India, she was inducted into the Sufi lineage of Sheik Nur al-Jerrahi (Dr. Hixon) and began her study and practice of Sufism. She also at this time took up martial arts and chi kung, and began what would become a life long study of yoga. It was in this period of time that she also entered into her healing and training in contemporary psychological methods.
At the age of 35, she was invited to apprentice with “The Guides”, an Interdimensional Love-Wisdom Presence who taught her a Way of Seeing and a methodology for healing, at depth, our Shadow, Past Lives, and the Wounded Child matrixes that live within our psyche and, when triggered, act out in our lives. The channel and lineage holder for these beloved teachers, William Cory, was her beloved for 9 years and valuable beyond words as a vehicle for her own healing.
The years of training that followed expanded her wisdom, insight, empathy, compassion, and love a hundred fold. She was directed to look within her own being in order to experience truth directly, to leave the structure of the standard religions behind, and to teach those who sought her counsel from her own integrated and embodied knowing awareness. This period of apprenticeship to The Guides lasted seven years, and gave her a healing technology completely new to this planet, aimed directly at healing shadow and inner child matrixes. She is one of only three who know this life changing and transformational healing technology.
Human Design entered her life in 1996 when she had an immediate inner knowing upon seeing the diagram that it was the Truth. She dove in completely and was certified by Ra Uru Hu himself to give readings in only the second class of students/teachers taught by Ra Uru Hu in the United States. Human Design has been an ever deepening life long study, practice, and love for Beverly since then.
Beverly has also striven to be diverse, grounded, and accomplished in her worldly life as well. She served as District Supervisor, Department of Parks and Recreation, Maui, Hi. for over twelve years not soon after out of college supervising hundreds of men and administering a large budget.
She also lived for five years in a small fishing village in central Mexico where she was blessed by a quickening of her soul at the shrine of the Virgin de Guadalupe. It was here in Mexico where she completed her apprenticeship with the Guides, deepened her spiritual practice and study, and completed her work on her Masters degree in Comparative Religion.
Beverly is also a licensed pilot and certified scuba diver, has taught tai chi, ecstatic dance, chi kung, yoga and meditation, and was a USTA tennis professional for many years.
Today, Beverly has a thriving international practice as a Spiritual Mentor, Human Design Analyst, and Spiritual Healer/Counselor. She remains committed to her practice of healing, teaching and guiding those who wish to free themselves to live as their most authentic self, with their awareness grounded in the present moment in full engagement with the dynamism of life.
She is a rare heart and very bright light, one who lives her truth and walks her talk.
