About the Author
Patty Bear rose out of the insular and male dominated world of the Reformed Mennonite “Plain People” to become an Air Force pilot during the first decade women graduated from pilot training, which she writes about in her memoir From Plain to Plane: My Mennonite Childhood, a National Scandal and an Unconventional Soar to Freedom. A retired international airline captain, she has spent over thirty years dedicated to the study of defying gravity: escaping conditioning, walking the transformational journey and following the call of the Wild Soul. She is a certified Medical Qigong practitioner, a life coach, a self-certified master multitasker, a garden and interior design whiz, a voracious reader and co-author of House of the Sun: A Visionary Guide for Parenting in a Complex World (2016). She lives on the east coast with her family.
