Prudence Farrow Life

Prudence Anne Villiers Bruns (born January 20, 1948) is an American author, meditation instructor, and film producer.

She is the niece of actress Mia Farrow's younger sister.

"Dear Prudence," she is the subject of the Beatles' "Dear Prudence" song.

Early life

Farrow was born as a Catholic and attended convent schools. She discovered the Transcendental Meditation Method (TM) at UCLA in 1966, and the following year she became interested in yoga, establishing a yoga institute at a former Boston church. In 1968, Farrow, along with her sister Mia and brother Johnny, travelled with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi from New York to India and then to the Maharishi Ashram in Rishikesh for a Transcendental Meditation teacher training course.

The Beatles arrived a few days later. Farrow was determined to learn how to become a TM teacher. "I would always rush straight back to my room after lectures and meals so I could meditate," she said. John, George, and Paul will all want to sit down and having a good time, while I'd be flying into my room. They were all serious about what they were doing, but they weren't as enthusiastic as me." She "came into a near recluse" and "rarely came out" of her cottage. Lennon was asked to "contact her and make sure she came out more often to socialize," and he wrote the song "Dear Prudence." "She'd been jailed for three weeks and was trying to reach God faster than anyone else," Lennon said.

Personal life

Albert Morrill Bruns, a Farrow married teacher, was born in December 1969. They have three children and four grandchildren.

When Robert Durst married to Kathie McCormack in late 1981, he was nearing the end of an alleged three-year affair with Farrow. According to the New York Times, Farrow called her just a few months before McCormack's disappearance in January 1982, as friends said she wanted him all to herself. After Durst was cleared of murdering Morris Black in 2003, Farrow contacted law enforcement to report her, as she said Durst was furious with her for ending their friendship three days before McCormack disappeared.
