Introducing myself and my journal: Zen Under Fire
I'm a writer, human and women's rights advocate and yoga teacher. I see writing as a form of activism, a force for social change.
After experiencing an emotional, psychological and spiritual crisis while working as a human rights officer with the UN in Afghanistan, I became really interested in what it takes to find our own place of inner peace in the midst of the suffering, conflict and chaos around us - and how that process might be essential to our ability to lead, or even contribute to, effective, sustainable, transformative social change.
That's the subject I want to explore here!
