About her story: I am deeply motivated by humanistic values and feel that a society can only progress when we also care about creating social capital in a sustainable way as well. It is my personal experience that understanding and integrating the world’s spiritual traditions plays a significant part in creating that social capital. I know how to connect with people and bring new ideas to people across all age groups and backgrounds across many different kinds of platforms. As a Bengali-Canadian, I grew up Muslim, went to Catholic schools for most of my life but was exposed to Hinduism and Buddhism. While living in Turkey, I was able to meet and spend some time with His Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of the Greek Orthodox Church in Istanbul and Faruk Hemdem Çelebi, the current leader of the Mevlevi Sufi Order in Konya. I also spent five years with Native American Elders of the Mohawk tribe in Quebec and Hopi tribe in Arizona understanding First Nations and Native American spirituality and their modalities of healing with the sweat-lodge - from her blog (link: https://earthenergyreader.wordpress.com/about/)
