About Me: 

I'm in my mid-forties. I used to be a professional in the public policymaking industry in the UK. I took on the role of embedding human rights into public policy. Now, I'm taking on the role of being an advocate for inspired humanity. That is, encouraging and supporting people to be and act in-spirit (motivated by internal animating, life-affirming forces such as curiosity and compassion).

I'm the daughter of Indian immigrants to the United States. At the moment, I'm very conscious of how much valuable connection has been lost in our family as a result the way their migration journey played out. My siblings and I, for example, don't speak their mother tongue. As a consequence, my parents were unable fully to share their stories, their inheritances and their emotional lives with us. This has left them feeling isolated and disconnected from their own children...more on this topic will be posted in my blog soon, because I am for the first time feeling angry about this loss of connection on my behalf, on my parents' behalf, on behalf of all the families who have experienced this.

I am currently based in Santa Fe, New Mexico after living in the London for twenty years. I define (R)evolution as the daily practice of using our creativity and power to give rise to and nurture loving and restorative relationships with our selves, each other and the planet.

My Passions: 
Cooking the food of my ancestors, storytelling, dancing, mountain-walking, supporting people to step more deeply into (R)evolution
My Challenges: 
Staying steady in the practice of self-love and working with social media to develop myself as an independent freelancer
My Vision for the Future: 
A world thriving from relationships rooted in love and conscious creativity
My Areas of Expertise: 
Can't stand the word expertise - I have much experience in working with conflict, insight listening, and storytelling as a means of creating movement
My Languages: 
English, Spanish
