- This week on the show we speak by telephone with Barbara Haynes,a long time student of spiritual teacher EJ Gold. Barbara is the author of the recently published book Every Day A Holy Day: Exercises, Experiments, and Practices for Mindful Living.
Barbara Haynes was born in 1950 to a tenant farming family on the plains of west Texas. Her mother was a devout Christian and instilled in Barbara a sense of spiritual values and a belief in an existence beyond what we can see. She spent her early adult years searching for a spiritual “home”. In the spring of 1984 she received an invitation to attend, what was for her a pivotal, invocational dinner at which the work of E.J. Gold was presented and studied. She found the works of E.J. Gold and his presentation of the ideas to be very practical and useful in everyday application. After working with Mr. Gold and some members of his community at a jewelry show in Los Angeles in 1985 Barbara made the decision to move to California to live and work with the community working with Mr. Gold. In November, 1986, Barbara moved to Grass Valley, California and has been working closely with Mr. Gold for the last thirty years.
