Who Wrote It
Madhuri MacCrae was raised with six siblings in raggle-taggle poverty in Southern California. Serendipity gave her two years in Europe as a teenager. She went to India in 1973, when she was twenty-one. She lived there until 2002, with working sojourns in the States, Europe, Japan, and the Antipodes.
She received her education in India (most of what passed for schooling in the States having been truncated and forgettable) at the Osho meditation commune, and has in turn become a teacher of meditation, psychic opening, dreamwork, women’s metaphysical studies, and Tantra. She’s also worked as housecleaner, exorcist, constructionperson, intuitive-jewellery-wallah, and more.
She is a painter, delighted clothes enthusiast, writes far more than is good for a person, and loves finding herself rambling in strange places. She enjoys train rides, reading, hiking, dancing, big orange tomcats, stationery (she makes her own), and techniques for inner exploration. She’s been motorbiking in the Himalayas, feasting at midnight way above the Arctic Circle, cycling in the dark in Gujarat, ghost-busting in Hamburg, Strip-O-Gramming in California, and river-floating in the Ozarks. She now lives in Hebden Bridge, W. Yorkshire, England
Madhuri has published many poems and articles in various periodicals. Her first book, Impassioned Cows By Moonlight, was published in 1974. Her second, With Open Hands: a Psychic Palmreading Workshop, was published online in 2000.
