By exposing herself to many diverse cultures in over 80 countries since the mid-1960's, Cheryl Arnold Moseley shares some of her experiences that taught her to see and hear without boundaries, and allowed her to know many remarkable people, including Mother Teresa.
Cheryl Arnold Moseley's adventures rival any blockbuster movie. The Billings, MT and Santa Monica, CA nurse, photographer, and speaker, served the sick and dying alongside Mother Teresa, took Buddhism classes from the Dalai Lama, and met celebrities from around the world. Yet, it was the ordinary people she photographed in remote areas of the globe that most touched her heart.
She has taken part in several high altitude mountain climbing expeditions up to 23,000 feet, bicycled, canoed, rafted, and adventured around the world several times, flew in a MIG 29 in Russia, volunteered in nursing and health education in villages in Afghanistan and Himalayan mountain villages, and worked with Mother Teresa on many occasions beginning in 1973. For the last 20 years she worked as an RN Surgical Assistant with her husband, Dr. John Moseley, a neurosurgeon, working with the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, Kansas. She is currently writing her book of memoirs, as well as continually updating her www.eyeoftheworld.us
Her artistic vision began forming long before she ever thought of taking photos. Her father was blind from birth, and she became his eyes at an early age, relaying the beauty of the world she saw. That same focus helped her see the world through photographic lenses. What started out as a yearning to capture the moment, transformed into a desire to understand different perspectives. For Cheryl, her Eye of the World photography became symbolic of the world she discovered as a traveler. The more places she visited, the more she understood that the world's diverse cultures and religions provided different perspectives for the people she met.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (Subject to certain rules and regulations)
