About Maetreyii Ma Nolan

Maetreyii Ma Nolan, Ph.D. is a teacher and writer on yogic philosophy, meditation, yoga practices, spiritual awakening and living a balanced, happy and spiritual life.   Dr. Nolan is currently the president of Ananda Guru Kula, a non-profit dedicated to spreading the wisdom teachings of Yoga and a transpersonal psychologist in private practice. She spends her time giving 'Baba Talks', teaching and writing books based on many of these beautiful discourses. She is a wife and mother and currently lives with her husband in their ashram community in the Northern San Francisco Bay area. 

Maetreyii ma has been a devotee of Shrii Shrii A'nandamu'rti, who is affectionately called Ba'ba', since her initiation into yogic practices in 1969. A year after initiation she began to experience a blissful state, or bhava*, in which she felt Ba'ba' manifesting in subtle form, conveying knowledge on many topics. She experienced a deep and compassionate flow of unconditional love and teachings emanating from this subtle manifestation of the Divine and was told that it existed so that some day she could learn to love others as he has loved her.

The years passed, and when her Guru, Shrii Shrii An'nandamu'rti, left his physical body in 1990, Maetreyii Ma, through a series of profound mystical experiences, received direction from the Divine Guru within to begin sharing with others the deep and sweet guidance he had for so long been giving to her. Thus began the public expression of this 'Baba bhava' devotional expression of the Divine Beloved. 

Maetreyii Ma is a former director of the Spiritual Emergence Network, a founding member of the Kundalinili Research Network, founder and past president of Ananda Seva Mission, and former co-director of the Ananda Seva Yoga Teacher Trainings and Yoga Therapy Trainings. 

* A Bhava is a state of Divine love and inner knowledge - a mood of ecstasy, self-surrender, and focused emotional energies that is brought about by the development of devotion to one's ishtadeva (Divine Form)
