Chris & Daya Doolin
Chris and Daya Devi-Doolin met while playing music on the streets of Philadelphia, PA. Chris came from a musical background of piano study and guitar performance in the folk/rock vein. Daya had learned to accompany herself on acoustic guitar while singing her original songs in club and other venues.
Back during those days in Philadelphia, you could catch them day and night at 16th & Chestnut, or on South Street, playing to large crowds with the five-piece acoustic funk band "Street Players". When this group dissolved, they continued together, were married, and the folk/country/inspirational duo, "Abraham's Seed" was born. For years, they performed in the Northeast, at colleges, coffeehouses, concerts, on radio and TV. They produced their first EP album, "Sides of Love" featuring the popular requested song, "Momma", which was reviewed in Billboard Magazine upon release in 1997.
While performing music together on the street, Chris and Daya discovered they had an affinity for dreams, yoga and metaphysical spirituality.
In 1986, we moved to Florida, and soon, "Abraham's Seed" sprouted into Level Seven (to become aka Level Seven later).
In 1985, we were introduced to an additional world for focusing and increasing our spiritual awareness. Through a series of serendipitous occurrences, we began to study and practice with A Course In Miracles. We eventually became ACIM facilitators for several groups of committed students. It opened us up to the great healing powers of the universe. We wrote our first joint book on the language of dreams and their meaning, called Hidden Manna. We sold it via mail-order after taking an ad out with Whole Life Times Magazine.
Through an illness Daya had in 1986, she was told she would have to have surgery. Through prayers, she was led to discover and experience spiritual, natural healing without surgery. Her complete healing led her to study & receive training and certification in the first level of Usui Reiki Natural Healing. One year later, she received training in the 2nd Degree Level of Reiki and another year later, on to receive Certification, Attunement and Training in the 3rd Degree, Master Teacher Level. Chris has received training and certification in Reiki Levels I and II. We have both received Training and experience in Rebirthing and Loving Relationship Training based on the method of Internationally known Author and Rebirther, Sondra Ray.
Chris and I were eventually told through Spirit we would be opening a natural healing center. We call it The Doolin Healing Sanctuary. There we offer a variety of alternative holistic methods of training, healing, classes and workshops which lead to healing and spiritual growth. We offer free introductions to Reiki, Yoga, Power of Thought and Rebirthing. We offer sessions in Yoga, group Rebirthing, individual Rebirthing, Reiki healing, Reiki I, II, & III attunements, Intuitive Counseling and Prosperity Workshops
In 1988, I was lifted up in consciousness and shown I would be writing a book. Spirit's Voice said, "It will be called Vita-Minds." "What are Vita-Minds?" I asked? "Super energized thought forms," was the reply. Later, I was told the title would be Super Vita-Minds. The sub-title would be "How To Stop Saying I Hate You...To Yourself." I started the actual writing in 1989. I designed the cover, designed the back cover, listing 12 chapters and the topic of each chapter, not even knowing how each topic would be filled.
Then I went to chapter one and started filling in the information Spirit would have me write. I channeled much of the book. At one point after I had a friend edit it for me and negative energy was injected into the situation. I was discouraged by the comments made about the title and the information in it. I declared it was too hard to complete and put it away until 1997 when it was seriously impressed upon me it must be completed this year. I jumped right in with no hesitation this time. All negativity had been swept away for me and I began receiving the information with new fervor.
I designed the cover anew, the back cover was changed and everything was pretty much "effortless". When I had questions about how it was going to be funded, I was told it was taken care of, "Not to worry!" And so it was. Every question I would have, "Not to worry!" was the reply. And so it was. My book was completed and published by August 1998. It was into the public's hands and flying out of our local headquarters of Padaran Publications by early September. It's now in the four corners of the United States and around the world. Every week another portal is opened for Super Vita-Minds to flow into.
We have continued with our music and have released 2 CD of our songs, meant to inspire and delight, entitled Level Seven and Smile America. We have performed music with Steve Reel and the Reels, and the transformative world music SkyEarth orchestra, all the while continuing as aka Level Seven.
Chris and I have a son Joseph Paul Doolin and Daya has a son, Tyler R. Mitchell through a former marriage. The latest addition to our family is a mystical Sealpoint Siamese named Dune.
