Mae Gosaynie is a citizen of the United States born to parents of Middle Eastern descent. She possesses two Bachelor’s degrees: One in Biology and a second in English language and literature. She has a Master’s degree or M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Differentiated Instruction. She also has a certified professional license to teach grades 6-12 and teaches Advanced Placement Biology and Human Anatomy at a High School in her home state of Michigan. She is a published author of an article entitled, “Acknowledging the Creator Within”, published in Nature of Occurrences (Thought Notebook Journal) Thought Collection Publishing (TCP), Journal Issue 3 printed December 2, 2014.

Mae’s parents belonged to a religious sect that believed in reincarnation and the suffering of the soul, so these religious and spiritual concepts were ingrained in her upbringing early on. She chose to be born to this Middle eastern family in the U.S. so that she could learn about discrimination and racial inequality.

Her education was disrupted multiple times as she was transferred from one school to another. However, all these disruptions had a purpose. They exposed her to different racial demographics as well as different religious beliefs. By the time she was an adult woman she had taken communion in a Catholic church, prayed on her knees to Allah in a Muslim mosque, chanted Wahe Guru in a Sikh temple, and also experienced the Unified Field of Consciousness through her many years of practicing Transcendental Meditation. She was initiated into the TM movement in the fall of 1994. She progressed to advanced Siddha status and Yogi flying in 2003.

Mae has three sons from a previous marriage. She lives in a humble home with her small dog and youngest son. She lives her life in an attempt to help and guide others. She spends her days writing poetry, reading, taking long nature walks, and reciting ‘Hare Krishna’.
