    I have a spiritual guru who is 88 years old. He was born in Tibet, is a monk and went through many, many years of training from masters and long retreats in order to become someone who is truly qualified to take responsibility for other people’s spiritual well-being.

    When someone just starts calling themselves a “spiritual guru” to sell books — run.

    Anitra, not everyone has the money nor interest in travelling to exotic places to find a teacher. Guru, means remover of darkness, and that could be said about anyone, a yoga teacher, author, psychologist, your mom. I’m not familiar with Gabby’s work, but her suggestions in the video seem simple and benign and this can be profound for some people in healing their lives. Obviously your special guru hasn’t taught you much about non judgement, and you are still searching otherwise you wouldn’t have bothered to read the blog and use your precious energy to respond.

    Sounds like a book for idiots written by an idiot. Call me judgmental and proud of it :)

    “Jane”, Thanks for the lesson in how not to be judgemental!

    I found my teacher an hour from where I live, though I am lucky to live in the Northeast

    Gabby’s “tip” in the video might be benign (“peace begins with me”), but authentic spiritual teachers or gurus don’t go around announcing it. Positioning herself that way for marketing purposes or personal gain is dangerous to Gabby more than anyone.

    Gosh Anitra, you’re defensive as well! Your ego really has a hold on you, I’d be asking that guru for a refund. How much does he charge for a session for his special power/knowledge??? In case you hadn’t worked it out by attacking/dismissing Gabby’s work your ego is trying to deny her right to exist and make a contribution in the world. Why would you do that?
