About the author


Kamalamani is a body psychotherapist, ecopsychologist, supervisor and facilitator with an interest in how therapy is shaped by its social, political, ecological and cultural context, drawing upon her experiences of being a development worker in sub-Saharan Africa, a lecturer in International Development at the University of Bristol, her current meditation practice and being a child lost and found in nature. Having practised Buddhist since 1995 she is also curious about the interface between therapy and Buddhism. Previously a steering group member of Psychotherapist and Counsellors for Social Responsibility, Kamalamani was also editor of Transformations. In addition to several journal articles she has written two books: Meditating with Character and Other than Mother: Choosing Childlessness with Life in Mind and is currently working on her third. She facilitates ecopsychology and Wild Therapy workshops and retreats.
