Bonnie Barnard, PhD had her first direct experience of God at age five when she was
praying over and singing to her vegetable garden. “A blanket of Divine Love wrapped me so fully that I vowed I would become a teacher of Spirit,” Barnard says. She has kept her commitment to that promise. Today she serves as a Spiritual Advisor supporting individuals in finding spiritual solutions to human problems and companioning individuals in maturing spiritually.
This is done through individual sessions, on line classes, and retreats. She is the author of five books, contributor to two, and hosts a blog on her website www.bonniebarnard.com.

Yogananda wrote volumes of books on tending to your body as a holy, spiritual practice. Jesus healed bodies as an active part of his ministry. The Torah teaches about food and bodily practices for good, moral, healthy living. The Buddha taught the body is impermanent with the body comprised of an interdependent mental, emotional and physical being. The spiritual community talks about “embodied spirituality.”
