Emma Slade was born in Whitstable, Kent and was educated at universities in Cambridge and London. She had an exciting international career in finance which she committed to with mental drive and a tasteful selection of suits. But a deep seated desire to enquire into the deeper aspects of what it is to be a human being led her to turn in a different direction.

She has happily practiced and taught yoga and meditation for over 15 years and continued a life long interest in Buddhism. These interests deepened after meeting a Lama in Bhutan and eventually led to her ordination in Bhutan as a Buddhist nun.

She is hoping to eventually become a truly kind person and is the founder of the charity Opening Your Heart to Bhutan. All profits from her books will go to support projects for children in Bhutan run by this charity.
