Memorial Tribute To My Niece

Times are changing; we can all feel it. More and more people, just like you, need their livelihood to be a result of making a larger contribution to the planet and all who live here. There is a paradigm shift away from consumption to sustainable service and stewardship. I understand that need at a very deep level; it drives my life.

I specialize in building simple, elegant websites for artists, mystics, and healers. As an artist, mystic, and healer myself, I understand the needs of your clients better than a web designer that only has technical skills to rely on. I speak the language and understand your target audiences better, and can translate that into a web site that accurately captures your essence and your message.

On the technical side, I have been in the IT field for over twenty years and have supported people in their computer needs in both the corporate and non-profit sectors. I have seen computers and the Internet evolve and change how people produce the results in their lives and make positive change in the world.

I also do local and remote hardware support. I would love to serve your computer needs. Let's create some positive change together.

Developing web sites and providing computer support require so much more than knowing just the technical side. Understanding the needs and language of the mystic and healer community and being able to translate that into an effective website is one of my strengths. I use my graphic artist skills, attentiion to detail and immersion in the community to develop the look and feel that conveys your message in the most effective visual way. Clear, compassionate communication is essential and it's a passion of mine to facilitate that. There are a number of open source, online tools that, when implemented properly, make it possible to gain efficiencies in reaching your target audiences.

Devi BhaktanandaMy passions are chanting in Sanskrit and facilitating communication via graphic art and website services between healers, artists and mystics and the people who can benefit from their services. In six weeks, I healed an eight and a half year bout of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia through Bhakti Yoga (devotional chanting), Spiritual Practice (Science of Mind), Feldenkrais (Awareness Through Movement), and singing. I want to do whatever I can so that other people know about and have access to the transformative power that lies within them.

Mini Bio:

After being a Senior Network Engineer in Corporate America in Virginia for decades, in 2004 I realized a passion for the non-profit sector. From 2004 - 2006, I made my living as an independent computer consultant on both coasts, serving small businesses and non-profits who are engaged in making this world a better place.

In 2006 I took a full time staff position doing data network consulting and support at NPower Seattle. After 2 years, I resigned my position at NPower Seattle (Now NPower Northwest), went back to school full time and started transitioning Westbecks into Blue Lotus Bhakti, where my focus is on web development work for healers, artists and mystics in addition to promoting Bhakti Yoga and sound healing while still doing some IT technical support. Trips to India in 2007 and 2008 had a profound effect and have influenced this newest chapter in my life. I maintained a 4.0 GPA earning an Internet and Website Development certificate in '08/'09, even while in India.

In 2010 and most of 2011, I was going to school full time maintaining a 4.0GPA in my BA program in Marketing and Public Relations, while also enrolled full time in Religious Science Practitioner's Studies, and simultaneously enrolled in Gina Salá's year long Sacred Sound School. During this time I was also teaching Sacred Sound Workshops, offering community ashram and temple space, running my computer support and website development businesses, singing in community at church and leading community kirtan, and I produced and sang in a New Thought concert. In late 2011, I returned to India where I have been studying Sanskrit, Naada Yoga, and other Sacred Sound practices as well as offering kirtan and Sacred Sound experiential playshops in Thiruvannamalai and Mysore. I plan to return to the US in mid May 2012.
