About Tom Kelly
A Raja Yogi and former monk of Self-Realization Fellowship, founded by his guru Paramahansa Yogananda, Tom Kelly offers his vast life experience and wisdom steeped in the Eastern Yogic tradition of Patanjali's eight steps of Raja Yoga.
Reverend Tom Kelly is an ordained minister, motivational speaker and certified yoga instructor who has devoted 25 years to meditation, humanitarian service and traveling the world teaching the sacred art of Raja Yoga. A warm, engaging and lion-hearted sage, today Tom inspires and teaches others about the path to enlightenment through speaking engagements, yoga classes, workshops, retreats and counseling sessions.
As a child, Tom attended Sunday services with his family in an upper middle class neighborhood in North Hollywood, but never found God to actually live there. Instead, Tom found his heart to be the church where the inner dialogue with his Divine Friend began.
When Tom entered college at the University of California in Santa Barbara he stood out in that he was an excellent surfer, golfer and baseball player, as well as a smart and popular student. On the inside, however, Tom yearned for a life of spiritual devotion. Tom joined the Ashram of Paramahansa Yogananda in the fall of 1974. Tom spent 3-6 hours in daily meditation transmuting his fears and frustrations through giving his heart to Divine Mother. To this day hefeels safe and loved in Her Holy Embrace.
After living and serving for 25 years in the ashram of Self-Realization Fellowship, Tom left and returned to the world without a car, job or even a place to live. At the same time he was beginning this new chapter in his life, divine timing was unfolding to place Tom with his Divine soul mate, Trisha.
Trisha Kelly, a Certified Metaphysician and Mystic Visionary, offers her experience and gifts in the Western healing arts of metaphysics, sound, vibration, light and healing, which have brought her certification in many modalities, such as Soul Memory Discovery, Reiki, Light Work and Spiritual healing of Indigo Children.
Trisha is an ordained minister and certified yoga instructor, and holds certifications in many modalities, such as Soul Memory Discovery, Reiki, Light Work and Spiritual healing of Indigo Children. Combining her learning with intuitive knowing, Trisha offers private counseling and healing sessions, yoga classes, workshops and Spiritual Arts training.
From an early age Trisha Park found herself seeing and communicating with Divine Beings of Light. In a quiet reverie in her early teens, nature revealed to Trisha a sense of God-Presence that she had never connected with at the Church. Spirit was in everything and everywhere. The world became her Cathedral and music and dance became Trisha's inspiration and passion.
Trisha danced her teenage tensions away. At 17, she packed her bags and went on the road with an off-Broadway show, traveling the country. She eventually married and moved to Los Angeles. After reading the book Man's Eternal Quest by Paramahansa Yogananda, Trisha's life changed forever.
In a meditation one day, Trisha heard the voice of Yogananda, "Will you come and work for me?" Without hesitation, Trisha followed that intuition and spent the next 20 years in loving service with the nuns of Self-Realization Fellowship.
