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

I’m a writer – my newest books are Dear Earth: Love Grief and Activism and Coming Home: Refuge in Pureland Buddhism.

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

I’m a psychotherapist and supervisor in private practice, working with Internal Family Systems (my practice is currently full).

I try to do small things to bring attention to the climate and ecological emergency, and finished a year of daily vigils last year.

I write a newsletter on Substack called ‘Going Gently’ – have a look here & sign up on the right if you’d like to feel more loveable just-as-you-are. I also write about Buddhist/ecological themes at Buddhist Door and Gentle Buddhism at Patheos.

I’m also a dogs & cat guardian, a connoisseur of vegan cake, a reader, a fair-weather walker, a fan of trashy detective novels and Ru Paul’s Drag Race, and an ordinary fallible human.

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

Satya <3
