Marianne is a writer, a human rights advocate and a yoga teacher based in New Zealand. Her beautiful blog is about her experiences teaching yoga in Afghanistan, teaching other people to live authentically, and writing her very first book, Zen Under Fire: Learning to Sit Still in Afghanistan. (Not out yet.)
We became friends on Twitter, had drinks in Brooklyn, and today Skyped between Boston and New Zealand, me in my sweaters and scarves, she in her tank top, hair tied back. But not matter the differences in time and weather, you know it when you encounter a sister.
