About Lyse Mai Lauren

Lyse Lauren grew up in Nelson, New Zealand as the third of four children. Her 'known' world was abruptly shaken when she had a brief but profound spiritual experience as a child. Just a few years later she was 'challenged' yet again when dragged out to sea by ocean currents and almost drowned. These two events were the catalyst for a pronounced intention to discover the 'meaning of life.'
Driven by this deep inner longing, she travelled to Australia and eventually to Tibet, Nepal and then India, where she met her Master, a Tibetan Lama of high standing. In his presence she was able to rediscover what she had glimpsed as a child. Over a period of several decades she has lived near her teachers in various locations in the Himalayas.
