About the Author
Lea Belair has led an unconventional life. Born in Brooklyn, New York, she started adventuring through life when at age 15 she traveled to a remote Apache village as part of a summer service project seeking to build bridges between cultures. In college, she collaborated with Allen Ginsberg to present the exposition Artists Against War, and as a friend of Carole King, was one of the first people to hear the song "You make me feel like a natural woman." During the summer of 1967, she sailed San Francisco Bay on a Viking ship with Alan Watts.
Lea holds a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Yog Science, Vedant Philosophy and the Theory and Practice of Meditation from the International Meditation Institute in Kullu, India and a Master of Meditation degree from the World Development Parliament in West Bengal, India. In addition to being certified in Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), she has a BA in Writing and Literature. A former managing editor, manager in retail and manufacturing for women's apparel, website designer, hatha yoga instructor, and trainer and consultant in organizational development, she is now a full-time personal and business coach residing in Vermont.
