Reverend Bruce Shankar Fern, IYM, M.Ed.,has been not just instructing and studying the teachings of Integral Yoga for several decades but living them in every aspect of his life. He is the first to acknowledge that he is a “work in progress”, and his Faith in God (as the Divine Mother) and Guru acts as his guiding light through all his trials and tribulations. He loves sharing with others the insights he has been blessed with through his study of the yoga scriptures combined with daily prayer, worship, and meditation, and hopes to create a lasting community of those who seek wisdom and knowledge in this course.
