Chris Griscom conceived of the Nizhoni School for Global Consciousness after giving birth to her sixth child, Bapu, in the Atlantic Ocean while living on an island in the Bahamas. "My own inner self said, 'You're going to do a school,' " Griscom recalls. She balked at first, but the inner voice was persistent. Seven years later, Griscom is a well-known New Age teacher whose students include Shirley MacLaine.
