Evie (Soror Tzadkiel) received her B.A. from the University of Memphis in 2011 where she studied psychology and Judaism. She is a self taught artist, exploring wood burning, painting, mixed media, and digital art. She has been a student of the Western Mysteries and the Jewish Kabbalah since 2007, has done extensive work in various Western Mystery Schools, and has been raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason in the Western Order of Co-Freemasonry. She loves ecstatic dance, and has been practicing Yoga since 2010. She has received Yoga Alliance certification in Restorative Yoga under Andrea Peloso, and is currently in a 300 hour Hatha Yoga training through Aura Wellness. She has a deep connection with Vajrayana Buddhism, which she has been practicing since January of 2013. She sought refuge in the Longchen Nyingtik lineage in 2014, which is the school in which she still practices. She feels deeply honored to have received the name Yeshe Khandro from Lama Lhanang Rinpoche. Her genuine love for nature and animals led her to dedicate over 700 hours volunteering for the Toronto Wildlife Centre where she single handedly raised over $17,000 worth of donations for their 2015 annual auction, in addition to helping as a medical level wildlife care volunteer.
Her artistic expressions are crystalized prayers, woven with the intention that wisdom and compassion may constantly plant seeds of healing transformation in the heart of every being.
