Thanks for stopping by!
I'm Suzy the person behind sundrops & rainshine and I dabble in many fields of art! I love to create in many ways but found my ultimate passion to be blowing glass. I am fortunate enough to get to practice this in the near by town of Campbell River at the studio of Bob McLeod Glass (you can check out his glass works here > ) I also spend a lot my my time art journaling and this is where I grow many of my artistic concepts.
I was born and raised the small town of Whakatane, New Zealand but moved to Canada in 2013 and now live on Vancouver Island with my family. I love living on the island as it has many similarities to my homeland that bring me comfort. I'm wife to an amazing Chef and together we have created two handsome, sweet & mischievous boys as well as adopted one sassy French Bulldog and our kitty Clementine!
I also have a deep yoga practice and study Kriya Yoga with the Self Realization Fellowship under my Master Paramahansa Yogananda and Gurus Lahiri Mahasaysa, Sri Yukteswar Giri and Mahavatar Babaji. I praise Bhagavan Sri Krishna and the Lord Jesus Christ as incarnations of Vishnu as the divine Ishwara. I was born from God and I act in accordance to his divine plan, from his divine OM he sent me forth and to his divine OM I shall one day return. It is critical during this time of "Dwapura Yuga" (that which comes directly after the darkest hour of Kali) that we continue to teach ancient methods of yoga and meditation to ensure the Vedas are carried forth into the generations to come. I will always sacrifice my suffering to Mankind to allow balance to be restored in the Cosmos and harmony reestablished on Earth. I will always strive to offer what I believe true to God and hence true to this world. My personal practice is a combination of Bhakti and Jnana Yoga and to me yoga is something I live and breathe everyday. The Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, Yoga Sutras and Vedas are all aspects of yogic philosophy that I love to be immersed in and these texts form the basis for my understanding of life.
