Linda Li was born and raised in the Northeast of China, in what is now Yitong Manchurian Autonomous County, the Holy Land of the Manchus, in Jilin Province.  The Northeast is a regional melting pot of Manchu, Mongolian, Siberian, and Korean cultures that is still influenced by thousands of years of indigenous wisdom, shamanism, and esoteric Buddhism.  Linda comes from a family of practicing Buddhists—her parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and sister practiced Buddhism for as long as she can remember.   

Linda studied architecture and civil engineering at a university in central China south of the Yellow River.  Linda was fond of visiting the Shaolin Temple and other Buddhist temples in the region.  After graduating from college, Linda worked as a civil engineer, and then as a foreign investment officer.

In 1996, Linda came to the United States.  After flipping burgers and doing other odd jobs, Linda was hired as a production assistant for a radio station in Washington, D.C.  While at the radio station, Linda had the pleasure of meeting the Dalai Lama.  In 2000, Linda transitioned to the IT field, where she managed web sites for over a decade in a variety of corporate and non-profit environments. 

After she arrived in America, Linda was drawn to the Christian community.  For several years Linda visited many different churches and participated in bible study groups taught by a former missionary.  Linda was particularly drawn to Catholic churches, enjoying the architecture, the statuary, the candles, the incense, the singing, and the peace of Christmas Eve ceremonies, but did not know why—until 2004 when her mother (still in China) was quite ill.  At a Catholic church in Washington, D.C., Linda approached a painting of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, touched the painting, and implored Our Lady to “Please help my mother.”  Mother Mary answered her prayer, although, at the time, Linda did not realize it was from Mother Mary. She also had visions after she visited the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Linda found a connection in the Catholic churches or other Christian churches—not to any doctrine or dogma but to real peace and love.  Linda continues to visit  for this sense of peace and love and lit candles whichever church she visits.

Linda woke up on 11/11/2012 at a demonstration by the Monks of Shaolin.  Once awakened, Linda was guided to the kundalini yoga path in April 2013, when she enrolled in Kundalini Research Institute’s Level I Aquarian Teacher Training for Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan.®  Linda completed the 200-hour (twelve-month) Level I training program, and is continuing her yogic studies in the KRI Level II teacher training program, and Kartar Singh Khalsa is among her spiritual mentors.  Linda’s uncle, ordained a monk in the Shaolin Temple, is also among her mentors.  Linda’s uncle is the zhuchi (abbot) of his own temple, practicing a blended Buddhist tradition. 

During this awakening process, Linda came to realize that she has always had mystical connection to the Divine Feminine through Mother Mary and Bodhisattva Guan Yin, and it is her mission to bring Divine teachings to humanity.  

Linda’s spiritual path continues to expand. She was ordained as an Interfaith and Spiritual Minister by the Esoteric Theological Seminary. Linda plans to perform ministry work, including spiritual ceremonies for Soul reunions, weddings and more. Under the guidance of Gurunater Kaur Khalsa, she received the First and Second Degree Reiki attunements in the Mikao Usui lineage, and has experienced several past life regressions.  Linda loves to sing, chant, and dance, and she takes singing classes at a local community college.  She also loves the powerful vibration of drumming at traditional American Indian ceremonies, such as sundance. Linda believes that all tradions  offer a path for spiritual advancement and provide valuable insights into the Divine presence on Earth, and that Divine reveals herself in our daily interactions with each person and situation we encounter.

Linda is supported by her husband and family.
