A spiritual memoir of awakening to the universality of a Love beyond culture and religion, based on Vickie’s experience with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and his Buddhist community.
Vickie feels honored to be included in this beautiful compilation of stories about Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh. Her story “Thay in Disguise” reveals her journey from seeing Thay as a teacher outside herself to discovering the teacher within.
Writer, Spiritual Director, Yoga & Meditation Teacher
As an inter-faith minister and spiritual director, I accompany people of all faiths on their spiritual journey, and am connected to a broad network of spiritual directors and faith communities across North America. Since 2001, I have been intentionally building sangha and community through my yoga studio, Spirit in Motion Yoga, creating a safe and peaceful space to explore the deep inner work of yoga and meditation. I teach the “art of slowing down and listening deeply” to ourselves, to each other, to our planet, and to the Great Mystery that holds us all. With an inter-spiritual heart that embraces the oneness of all spiritual traditions, I seek to build bridges of shared practice and understanding through my writing, teaching and retreats.
With the depth and variety of my teaching experience, my passion for creating community, and my ties to both traditional religion, and emerging spiritual communities, I hope my writing reaches out to those whose own experiences have yet to find representation in spiritual literature. As a progressive Canadian writer, I want to give a face and voice to the ordinary seeker, who is seeking depth and meaning beyond the walls of traditional religion. With my inter-spiritual heart that sees beyond the surface, I invite others into that intimate space of communion with the wisdom and knowledge at the heart of all the great spiritual traditions.
