About Jennie Lee
I KNOW that it is! AND I have had my fair share of difficulties in life. That is why I write and coach using the ancient teachings of Yoga as the basis of all that I do, because they are what enabled me to find true happiness and live it every day.
Years ago my life was anything but joyful as I dealt with a rocky marriage, a colicky baby, and an impending move away from my career in Hollywood, friends, my horse and all things familiar. Depression was setting in and things weren’t looking good.
I was in a master’s program at the time studying Spiritual Psychology and practicing physical yoga for stress relief. That year, I wrote my thesis on ‘Joy Therapy’ – a plan of action that I imagined would bring me back to happiness. It was pretty good, but I kept searching for more. I dove into the deeper teachings of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and there I found a treasure trove of directions for managing every stress life could possibly throw our way. The Yoga Sutras are the foundational text for ‘inner’ yoga practice.

Excerpt from True Yoga: Practicing with the Yoga Sutras for Happiness & Spiritual Fulfillment by Jennie Lee
“According to yoga philosophy, enduring happiness can only come when we stop identifying with the incessant thoughts and feelings of the personality self (small s). This “I, me, mine” perspective is called the ego and it is what we normally associate with and think of as who we are. The Sutras proclaim that all of our struggles in life are because we have forgotten the truth of our being and have strayed into a belief of separation and inadequacy. Suffering will continue until we realize that our real nature is not material but spiritual and that we cannot possibly be separated from joy and peace, because they exist within our consciousness rather than in the external world.
The Sutras begin by noting that we must learn to quiet the constant fluctuations of the individual ego mind in order to experience our true Self (capital S)… Then we experience life through the consciousness of our soul, the unique expression of the Divine within. In this state we function as our human selves but see from the perspective of the true Self within. Liberated from the limitations of ego consciousness, we manifest Divine Consciousness in joy and ease here and now.”
