Regina Sara Ryan
Regina Sara Ryan is an author, editor, seminar and retreat leader. A former Catholic nun, Regina has studied contemplation and mysticism throughout her adult life. After leaving the convent in 1971, she explored other religious traditions and was inspired by the lives of the great women of Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and Sufism who had lived these ways. Since meeting her own spiritual teacher, the Western Baul master Lee Lozowick in 1984, Regina continues to follow what she calls a path of “unashamed devotion” in which she works to bring her life of contemplation into action. Her books include: Wellness Workbook , co-authored with John W. Travis, M.D.; The Woman Awake: Feminine Wisdom for Spiritual Life; After Surgery, Illness, or Trauma; Praying Dangerously; Only God: A Biography of Yogi Ramsuratkumar; Breastfeeding: Your Priceless Gift to Your Baby and Yourself and Igniting the Inner Life. She lives in Paulden, AZ with Jerome Pramuk, her husband of 40 years.
