Ayn Cates Sullivan ~ Author
There are certain people who have an impulse to awaken out of the ordinary and mundane world. This does not happen to everyone, but some people have a near death experience, or lose a job, or have a kundalini activation, and then suddenly they want to explore who they are and what life is really about. This is the beginning of the Quest for Wisdom.
After a series of powerful mystical activations that began over thirty years ago, Ayn Cates Sullivan, Ph.D. began to seek out true Wisdom traditions. She was particularly interested in traditions that have been followed for thousands of years. Many people find they are drawn to a religious path or seek wisdom through a deep exploration of themselves through spiritual means.
As the world experiences ecological crisis, many people have realized that nature needs our attention and have turned their focus on nature-based traditions, such as Neo-Paganism, Wicca, and Druidry, as well as indigenous Shamanic paths. All of these paths have wisdom and merit.
Dr Sullivan realized that she actually resonated strongly with three traditions (Judeo-Christian, Advaita Vedanta and Celtic Shamanism), and that it was completely correct and quite holistic to operate off all three simultaneously because eventually the core of each path combines into simply “Wisdom". Over the past few decades, Ayn Cates Sullivan has enjoyed a Round Table of spiritual traditions. Now she wants to share three decades of spiritual discovery with you !
Ayn Cates Sullivan on the Journey of Spiritual Awakening
I was raised in a very open-minded Unitarian Christian tradition, then in my twenties I became fascinated with Kaballah and spent many years studying with conscious Rabbis. This was very useful because after reading the Torah and writing 250 pages of commentary, I found my Jewish roots and understood more about my place in the world. I have a deep love of the Essenes and the pure life. It was an alchemical understanding of color that opened my first spiritual door.
I also have a deep love of Mother India, practice yoga, and have been a long term devotee of Ammachi. My husband's root guru is Ramana Maharishi, and I have also been picked up in his wisdom field. After John Patrick and I married in 2006, we began a daily inquiry practice which has nurtured our relationship and has truly helped up both thrive. We are both involved in The Ridhwan School, a modern path to personal awakening, which also involves inquiry as a path to awakening. What I love about the Advaita Vedanta path of inquiry is that there is no judgment, there are no rules to remember, no dogma, only the recognition of our own True Nature. I will share much more about this on the Wisdom of the Ages Podcast.
After spending many years involved in transcendent spiritual practices, I began to feel disconnected from the world around me. Seven years ago I returned to my Celtic roots, and realized the importance of spending time in nature and reconnecting with the multidimensional reality of myth and faery. I was called back into the work of Celtic Shamanism, and truly honor the indigenous cultures of Europe, as well as many indigenous traditions around the world. I have been luckily to meet Mayan priests, Native American wisdom keepers, leaders of the Tibetan Bon tradition, and well as the Bards, Ovates and Druids of the British Isles. I have written a number of books on the subject called the Legends of the Grail series. I discuss some of my books and quests in the Celtic tradition here with wise SuperPowerExpert host Tatiana Berindei

Hannah May Hocking ~ Author
Hannah May Hocking is a British author and illustrator.
She studied medicine until she fell ill to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). She had been so unwell, in and out of hospital, unable to leave the house that her garden became her sanctuary. One morning Hannah noticed Daisy flowers had grown in the grass over night. The flowers had formed a path from the house to the tree at the bottom of the garden. The tree was unusual as it had grown with a hole right the way through it.
Hannah imagined it to be gateway to another world. A world of fairies who wanted to help us. From that moment she named it the Fairy Tree and began to write the story of this book. Spending many hours illustrating the pages of this book by the Fairy tree. She wanted people to know that even at the most scary and darkest times in ones life, if you take a breath and look around you, you will see there is always a tiny ray of light that will guide you to where you need to be.
Hannah went on to earn a degree in History. Today, she lives in Devon with her husband John Hocking and a ginger cat named George. She can often be found exploring nature with a book or a pencil in hand.
