American mystic teacher and author, also known as Judy Zebra Knight and JZ Knight, who claims to be the channel of a spiritual entity named Ramtha, a 35,000 year-old warrior spirit from Atlantis.

She was one of nine children, raised in poverty. She was raped at the age of four. Married five times with two children, she was voted the most beautiful child in school. She married Jeffrey Knight 3/1984, her fifth husband, ten years younger. Divorced in 1989, she paid $120,000 in settlement and they both took younger men for lovers. She was taken back to court September 1992 by Jeffrey asking for more money and claiming that she used mind-control tricks. Jeffrey died later of AIDS.

Knight has appeared on US TV shows, such as Larry King, MSNBC and The Merv Griffin Show, as well as media such as Psychology Today. Her teachings have attracted figures from the entertainment and political world such as Linda Evans, Shirley MacLaine, and Salma Hayek.

Knight claims to bridge ancient wisdom and the power of consciousness together with the latest discoveries in science. Some of the ideas are similar to those of Shirley MacLaine, which have in turn been criticized for being "kindergarten metaphysics" by mathematician and skeptic Martin Gardner. Ramtha's teachings have further been criticised by scientists and skeptics around the world.

Knight lives in a 12,800-square-foot (1,190 m2) French chateau-style home and, next door, teaches courses and runs Ramtha's School of Enlightenment. She has been married three times and is the mother of two children from her first marriage which ended in divorce.
