Emma's TEDx Talk

“A powerful account of personal change, Emma used the framework of  the Buddhist and yogic symbol of development; the lotus flower.

This flower begins its life in the mud at the bottom of a lake and  grows upwards towards the light and the surface of the water where its  petals open clear and bright.

She describes the events which encouraged her to become a nun and  found a charity as an expression of her wish to put her prayers of  compassion into action”
