Being a force for good in the World.
How can we be the change we wish to see in the world?
Together, we will sink in to a deeper place through our connection to the Earth, ourselves and each other – tuning in through meditation, chanting and enquiry to hear our hearts call and tap in to the wisdom that will support us to face change with grace and courage.
Vandita will share her experience from years of campaign work and her spiritual journey, combining the inner and outer worlds to be able to act from a deeper, clearer space and become a force for good on this Earth.
Vandita has been a campaigner for environmental and social justice since she joined Survival International aged 15. She went on to study Law, specialising in Human Rights and Environmental Justice. Despite personal struggles at this time, she realised her childhood dream and went to South America aged 24 which opened her eyes to huge injustice against people and their land. She set up the Colombia Solidarity Campaign and went on to take BP to court for environmental damage. Despite a positive outcome, she felt disillusioned with the legal system and her soul called for her to explore this on a deeper level. Time in India led her to Amma and a deeply transformative time that opened her heart and brought deep healing. Emerging from this experience led her, over time, to fuse her inner activist with her spiritual experience to be able to make a difference in more wholesome, connected and magical way. Since then she has returned to the Amazon to work with tribes on the frontline of oil development and recently initiated a legal case against HS2 and Natural England to protect ancient woodland and endangered species which is currently at the Court of Appeal.
