Lynne Oliver, M.A.B.Th. M.F.Phs. I.A.Y.T. N.L.P.
My personal cathartic spiritual awakening came at a time of challenging stress – the death of my mother, the breakdown of my marriage, major surgery, and more! Although friends were supportive, the search for a deeper understanding of suffering came from YOGA and being involved with wonderful teachers who were truly inspirational. I continue to pursue my learning by attending as many seminars as I can, mainly in the USA where the I.A.Y.T. is based.
20 years ago I discovered that my only son was gay. I was devastated. I felt I had been a failure as a mother and blamed the divorce for depriving my son of a consistent father figure at an early age. My husband and I divorced when my son was only 3 years old. It had to be my fault as the divorce was my choice and I carried a lot of guilt surrounding this decision. I went into therapy to deal with my mixed emotions. My ex-husband was obviously perceived as a macho figure, being a well known Formula1 Grand Prix driver in the late 60’s and early 70’s, so it was kept under wraps for some time for fear of my son experiencing total rejection. Now, I am delighted to say that I have become close to many wonderful gay men who are a very important part of my life. I feel privileged to know and have so many caring and compassionate male friends who are always there for me.

|Two weeks on from my course, I am settling into a far more enriching life than ever before… I also use your yoga DVD, Lynne, and my stretches are getting easier. But more than this, I feel quietly in control of my life, less afraid (a lot less) and confident there are many things I will achieve.|
