I am an elderly lady who knows how it feels to be a black woman in white town. I have lived in Ojai for 20 years, working in spiritual centers like Meditation Mount and the Krishnamurti school, Oak Grove. I got to understand that white people see things on an intellectual level, but bypass the spiritual realm. They read and intellectually understand the world, but still just don’t get it. I am on a spiritual path, and am very clear and frank about what I see. I was born in Brooklyn and raised in Detroit, down the street from Motown. You might say I grew up with the Supremes. I became a Rastafarian and moved to Jamaica, built a house there and stayed 5 years. I moved to California 40 years ago and have been here since.
