I first met Jaye Ratio when we took a class at Bodhi Spiritual Center in Chicago. Jaye intrigued me from the very beginning. At the time, I was not sure why but I took notice of my reactions whenever our paths crossed. The reason for my fascination soon became apparent.
Jaye embodied the unexpected. One evening they would show up dressed in a plaid shirt, tee and jeans. The next class, they would be wearing lipstick with a full beard, dangling earring, a blouse and flowing skirt.
Jaye became my muse. Every time I saw them, my spirit was reminded of freedom and the hope of breaking free of limiting beliefs. Last summer, Jaye sat down for an interview with me as part of the #BodhiConnection series.
