Prabha is a nun in a Vedic Devotional Lineage (Bhakti Yoga), and she provides spiritual accompaniment across all faith traditions, and spiritual orientations.
Her work involves deep listening, presence, contemplation, prayer, witnessing, reflection, and affirmation, to nurture peace, insight, wisdom, care, and discernment, and to cultivate spiritual maturity.
Prabha’s background is in creative writing; professional singing and songwriting; experimental psychology at Oxford; post graduate trainings, (while working for London Diocesan Board), in therapeutic communication with children & adolescents, mediation, mentoring, and solution focused therapy; perfumery and sacred dance in Glastonbury; and in craniosacral biodynamic therapy.
She was initiated into the Brahma-Madhva-Gaudiya Vaisnava Sampradaya in 2007 by her Gurudeva, Nitya Lila Pravista Om Visnupada Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja.
Prabha moved to Colorado in 2005. She has been travelling to India almost annually since 2007. Meanwhile, she has edited English translations of sacred texts, and worked and studied in the fields of intercultural and interfaith learning. She is currently practicing spiritual accompaniment while studying for a diploma in clinical & pastoral counseling.
She chose the term accompaniment rather than direction or companionship as a matter of personal preference to evoke a sense of the musical and the culinary, of being complementary, and of our sovereign interdependence.

“[The Krishna consciousness movement] is not a sectarian movement or so-called religious movement. It is not a religion. It is [an] educational cultural movement.”(Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Maharaja; Caitanya-caritāmṛta Lecture, 1976, Washington D.C.)
