Amina JESSY Wolf 's Story

I am very proud that I was able to overcome my childhood and then broke the cycle so my children also didn't have to suffer. My various names are at the end of this. I was at VSG in 64-66. Transferred to Lowell HS, where I felt like a complete alien, but graduated in 67, (I had pink hair for awhile) hiding in the bathroom with all the other misfits. Afterwards, I married in 67, had two sons. (I lived in the Haight-Ashbury!) Trained and worked as a Licensed Psych Tech at many places for many years. I divorced, remarried, in 73; had a daughter and a son. Divorced in 83, went back to school at CSU Long Beach with major in Journalism, minor creative writing, graduated '87 with BA. I wrote a column in the paper and was on the magazine, won a prize for a story. I also met Nellie in 85. I was Asst. Ed. for the Lesbian News (under Jinx Beers) for a short while; Moved to the country and went to CSU Bakersfield, major in English Lit, minor writing, grad. 2002 with MA. Started publishing poetry and short stories (I am in 16 or 17 anthologies). Had grandchildren. Was teaching at various community colleges in California. Lived rurally with horses, goats, etc. and was called to a spiritual life because of the animals. I found that being in communion with them was a beautiful spiritual experience. Although I was raised to be Jewish, when I moved to SF bay area, I first studied Dianic Wicca with Ffiona Morgan (continuing some study I'd started in So. Cal with Ruth and Felicity), and then went to University of Creation Spirituality under Matthew Fox, (which became...Expand for more
Wisdom University) and graduated with a D.Min. 2007. During the same time I studied under Murshida Rabia Perez and was ordained as a Reverend Cheraga by Sufi Movement International in 2006, and also initiated with Sufi Order and Sufi Healing Order, and continue to study with a Sufi teacher from Sufi Order, Shakina. I was give the Sufi name Amina when I was initiated. My Clinical Pastoral Education was at St. Francis Memorial Hospital (in SF), a one year residency in 2005. Since then I've worked as a Hospice Chaplain. I joined an Old Catholic Order, covenanted as a Sister and am studying for the priesthood (have been ordained a Deacon). I am studying now to be a Spiritual Director at the Mercy Center (as a second year intern I have 4 directees). My grandchildren are blessings, I ma expecting my third. My work is rewarding. My partner and I have found peace together. She also has 3 kids, 6 grandkids, and so far 5 great grandkids. Her kids are more fertile!!! I live in Berkeley in senior housing with my partner Nellie and my dogs. We are the first lesbian couple to have a married contract here. Nellie has a lot of fun with all the seniors, she is very social and has been retired for a few years now. I was Lynda Lasnover at VSG; Kaye Lasnover at Lowell; Lynda Wong and Lynda Coker as a married woman; then Jessie Lasnover, Jessy Wolf, and finally Amina Jessy Wolf (given the name Amina by Pir Zia when I initiated into Sufi Order). Maybe you remember me under one of these names. I hope you also have been blessed with rewarding work and the love of someone.
