In her professional life, Netta Pfeifer has donned many and varied career hats, including: Office Assistant at Green Hills Theatre, an Equity summer stock company in Reading, Pennsylvania; Executive Secretary to two major motion picture talent agents in Hollywood, California; Assistant Manager of a resort on Oak Creek in Sedona, Arizona; Office Administrator for fine art galleries in Sedona; and Director of eSales for the Resonance Repatterning Institute.
At MCA Artists, Ltd. in Hollywood, she was the only employee ever allowed to work part time while completing her BFA degree from UCLA. During that time she interviewed the Oscar-winning French actress, Simone Signoret, for the UCLA Daily Bruin newspaper, which she later wrote about in the UCLA Alumni magazine, one of many articles she’s written for publications like Southwest Art, Living Bird, Farm & Ranch Living, The Secretary, Spirit of Change, and The Repatterning Practitioners Association Journal. After returning from Africa, Netta spent two years as production secretary on an award-winning film called The African Elephant. In the company of luminaries like Sir David Attenborough and Elspeth Huxley, she was the only American to be interviewed at the BBC in London for a television documentary on Joy Adamson’s life that appeared on the A&E network.
An Easterner by birth, Netta wears a very different hat these days. You might say it’s of the ten-gallon variety. She’s become a Westerner mostly because she’s lived in the grandeur and beauty of Arizona’s red rock country for far longer than anywhere else. “I am so glad that you found at last what you like, wide, open Arizona space and interesting work to do there,” Joy Adamson wrote to her. To that Netta would add how blessed she is to have a loving family as well as the support of a spiritual community, quite a few of whom she has known since the year she went to Kenya and lived Sleeping with Lions.

Searching for an answer to the question, What is love?, Netta Pfeifer journeys from Hollywood, California to Africa, where she works with Joy and George Adamson of Born Free fame, their cheetahs and lions. Her safari ends at an ashram in India where she learns about bhakti, the yoga of love and devotion, meets the beautiful man in her childhood vision, and he becomes her teacher, her guru.
