Penny tells of her spiritual impressions as an English translator for many of the over 5000 published works of the 20th Century Master Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov. Penny embraces Omraam’s teachings as being profoundly coherent and connected for our time; and she describes him as very practical for humanity as it is today. She explains the master’s emphasis on Light as the source of all material creation and Omraam’s practice of surya yoga, for identifying with the sun’s cosmic frequencies and spiritual quintessences. And she shares stories from his living disciples for whom the centerpiece of Omraam’s teaching is to become a Sun, and let this polestar of one’s own being emanate rays of divine intelligence, love, creativity, beauty, harmony and peace to shape the coming solar civilization.
Penelope Vernet is a devotee of Omraam Mikhael Aiavanhov. For most of her life, Penelope has looked for a deep and meaningful spiritual teaching and path. While searching, she has worked at various times in education, as an editor, and as the owner of a bookstore devoted to health and well-being.
In 1991, at the end of a five-year stay in France with her family, she discovered the teaching of Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov. A book -- Christmas and Easter in the Initiatic Tradition -- was put in her hands, and she knew at once that this was her path. Since the Master had departed this earth in 1986, she never had an occasion to meet him, but she has been fortunate enough to visit his beautiful school in the south of France a number of times.
Once back in the U.S. she discovered the wonderful brotherhood center in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, and began to attend gatherings there regularly. Wanting to be useful in some way to the organization, she soon found herself editor for the translator Violet Nevile, who had been chosen by the Master himself to translate his books into English. Following on the translator’s retirement, Penelope has had the great privilege of editing or translating various editions of the Daily Meditations, books from the Izvor Collection and works about the Master and his teaching by author and biographer Louise-Marie Frenette. Penelope lives in Exeter, New Hampshire.
