Local author and speaker, Farahana Surya Namaskar, uniquely blends her cultural diversity and experiences to aid other to find their “center and balance” through the art of meditation. Explore techniques for creating a peaceful mind and environment.
Namaskar is a published author and speaker located in Dallas. Born in Vancouver, Canada, raised in Nairobi, Kenya and of Indian, Asian roots, Namaskar uniquely blends her cultural diversity and real-life experiences into her written and spoken work.
Much of her written and spoken work addresses controversial topics that she is passionate about which she believes must be brought to the forefront of our society’s awareness. Living in the US has exposed Namaskar to witnessing first hand, the stereotypical attitudes, and perceptions towards Muslims. Society’s constant need to categorize individuals in all ways possible has further exposed Namaskar to the wrath of her minority status as a woman, a divorced woman, and a divorced Muslim woman.
