Aura Glaser

Aura Glaser (aka Auraor) is a contemplative artist and dharma coyote dedicated to the awakened heart. Her aspiration to support the flowering of love and wisdom in the midst of life has found expression in various ways—as a photographer, psychologist, author, teacher, poet, and entrepreneur.

Photography came as an unexpected gift at a time of significant health challenges, when many ways of being in the world were not possible. Her journey with a camera is guided by intuition, inspiration, and joy—her images a poetics of light. The natural world, Nature, and nonduality ground and suffuse her work. Looking through the lens of nonduality, we experience our bodies and everything else as vividly present and simultaneously pervaded by a unified transparency of boundless, radiant spaciousness.

An early life interest in spirituality led her on an overland journey to India in the late 1970s, and for 35 years she deeply immersed in the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism, Vipassana, and inner yoga with many great Asian masters. Her principal teacher was Gelek Rimpoche, whom she first met in Dharmsala, India in 1980. Aura co-founded Jewel Heart, an international Tibetan Buddhist organization, where she was a senior teacher for 25 years. Over time she became less rooted in tradition, and in 2012 established Inner Sky as a vehicle for offering the living essence of these teachings in a contemporary context. 

Aura is a fully licensed psychologist, with a background in humanistic and depth psychology. She maintained a private practice for 22 years. She is also the creator, and original owner of Crazy Wisdom Bookstore in Ann Arbor, MI.
