I am a writer of memoir. My husband, Fred Poole, and I run a series of workshops we call Authentic Writing in which people write passionately about their lives. I do almost all of my writing in these workshops. For readers of the Siddha Yoga blog (the-guru-looked-good.blogspot.com): I was on full-time, live-in staff 1990-2000 in Manhattan, South Fallsburg & Ganeshpuri. During the course of The Guru Looked Good being posted I was contacted once by phone by ashram management, telling me to take down the blog immediately and threatening to take legal action against me if I didn't follow orders.
