Devin Cecil-Wishing serves as Vedika's Transcriptions Team Coordinator. He is responsible for transcribing Acharya Shunya's teachings, outlining recorded classes and coordinating these assignments with other students to help maintain and grow an archival video library of Acharya Shunya's teachings as part of the Vedic Spiritual Studies program Member Intranet. He has studied with Acharya Shunya since 2017.
Devin came to Vedika with a background of studying, working, teaching and assisting hands-on in traditional art studios and schools. He is an artist and art instructor, specializing in traditional, representation oil painting and drawing. He studied Traditional Oil Painting at the Atelier School of Classical Realism, Oakland, CA, Traditional Oil Painting at Grand Central Academy, New York City, and received his BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Illustration.
Finding Vedika and Acharya Shunya’s teachings has been, quite literally, a life changing event for Devin. He knew early on after becoming a student member that he wanted to get involved and contribute as an active member of the community, in order to give back, feel more involved in the program, and become more connected with himself.
