Her interest in healing began when she lived in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and studied the work of the famed teacher, healer and Bible scholar, Edgar Cayce, then carried her to scores of countries, where she has visited, studied with, interviewed and written about some of the world’s most well-known healers and spiritual teachers, including John of God in Brazil, Sri Sathya Sai Baba and Ramesh Balsekar in India; Sri Amritanandamayi and Devi Amma, also of India; Vishwananda of Germany; Gangaji, Wayne Liquorman and John Sherman of the U.S.; Bharosa Adhikari in Nepal.

Having long been an advocate of selfless service as an invaluable avenue to growth, humility and cultural understanding, Connie has fed lepers in India, has tutored Chinese-American immigrants, is a Twilight Brigade Hospice volunteer, visits shut-ins, has been a Rotarian, supports the Weld County Food Bank, counsels abused women and takes sick people to India for healings.
When asked, as a media guest, about some of her favorite community service projects, she laughs and says that she has been volunteering since she was a young student and shudders to think of the many mistakes she made due to lack of awareness and inexperience. “But we learn by doing and by venturing into new areas to test our book-knowledge and theories and to grow through making mistakes. Hopefully we’ll make different mistakes in each growth cycle because that’s how we develop wisdom and compassion – for ourselves and others. Life is a great adventure and there’s nothing to limit our maximal expressions of love, creativity, forgiveness and harmonious relationships – except our erroneous thinking patterns, which can easily be changed with proper instruction and practice.
