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

If you want to hang out, the best place to find me & my writing is over at Substack – either a lovely free reflection once a month or more if you are willing & able to buy me two coffees a month and subscribe : )

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 in 2020. 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
