My name is Uranbileg Batjargal — Weaver of the Golden Thread
I was born in Mongolia. It is the country of horsemen, warriors, conquerors, nomads who travel camelback, shamans who communicate with worlds and dimensions beyond the ordinary reality. As a young person, I loved climbing barefoot on the rocky hills, gathering wild berries, conversing with small birds, and singing out load in the open air in the summer.
I often felt like a misfit. Perhaps it has something to do with my getting switched at birth. Hospital made a mistake and gave me to another family. My biological parents found me 3 weeks later and brought me back. According to my mother, I was a difficult child, unlike my older brother. Chewed on her nipples; “Off to the bottle filled with cow milk.” Got pneumonia at 3 months; ”Can’t believe I have to be hospitalized for the first time in my 30 years!“ Cried and moved a lot; “Why can’t you play nicely inside a carton box like your brother?”
My father thought I had a beautiful voice. He asked me to sing at family gatherings. When I lost his affection to a bottle filled with vodka, I lost connection to my own voice.
All my teenage years I longed for a freedom. I wanted to break free. I left Mongolia when I was 19 to study in Japan where I became immersed in the contemplative arts. I graduated from Tokyo University, with Master’s Degree in Economics and I moved to the United States to pursue a career at the World Bank. Along the way, I was married — and divorced. Broken hearted, I returned to my connection to the world beyond the ordinary reality, through meditation and other contemplative energy practices.
I discovered my true calling in 2014 in Colorado, United States, at a vision quest program organized by School of Lost Borders, an organization that empowers individuals to claim their place within society and the natural world responsibly and respectfully. I arrived as an orphan child who had been separated at birth, as a Mongolian living in America, as a woman who lost her husband, with questions about where I belonged. I emerged from this profound experience with an understanding that I could belong everywhere if I shift the way I saw myself in the world. The land gave me a new name: “Weaver of The Golden Thread.” My journey to wholeness involved weaving together my soul into my body, my feminine and masculine parts, the lives I’ve lived and forgotten, and the ancestors I’ve denied and run away from.
Today, I walk in two worlds. As an economist, a business systems officer, and a CPA, I make a living by managing budgets and performance reporting and applying data governance strategy and principles. I am a certified meditation teacher, Reiki master, shamanic practitioner, sound healer, and a nature-based guide. And, I am a poet.
