I was extremely lucky to have recently attended a few workshops Emma Slade was teaching at Warwick University. I was so inspired, she is an amazing woman with an amazing Story.
I had to buy her book.
The book chronicles her transformation from a high-flying financial advisor to a committed Buddhist nun.
After being held a at gunpoint in a smart Jakarta Hotel Emmas story unravels. This is a real page turner. Emma documents her fascinating life with humour and a refreshing amount of honesty. I read this book cover to cover in one sitting ......
This is an incredibly powerful and fascinating story of a true spiritual journey. I loved reading this book and would highly recommend it.
Emma wrote the book to raise funds for her charity "Opening Your Heart to Bhutan". The Charity provides access to medical care, disability aids and basic amenities for children with special needs in East Bhutan.
