Hello

me vigilGood to meet you. I’m Satya (she/her).

If you’d like to join my daily prayer for the Earth at 8am UK time on Zoom every day (or in person in Great Malvern) look here.

I’m a writer – my newest books are a heavily revised 2nd edition of Just As You Are: Buddhism for Foolish Beings & Dear Earth: Love Grief and Activism.

I’m a Buddhist teacher and I’ve run the Bright Earth temple in Malvern, the UK with my spouse Kaspa (they/them) for nine years.

I’m a psychotherapist and supervisor in private practice, working with Internal Family Systems (I currently have one fortnightly space on a Wednesday afternoon at 3pm).

I try to do small things to bring attention to the climate and ecological emergency. I finished a year of daily vigils in 2020 & am about to start a year of daily prayers.

If you want to read my current writing, do come over to a marvellous site that sends out newsletters & then saves them online called Substack. I write Going Gently for folk who push too hard & who want to ease up & enjoy everything more, and Gentle Buddhism for those interested in applying the going gently principles to their spiritual life.

Thank you for being here. I hope you find something that will nourish you. Deep bow,

Satya <3
