Episode 87: Divya Kohli on meditating in difficult time & how your book finds you


We were originally planning another episode this week, but we decided to release this interview with meditation teacher, yoga teacher and writer Divya Kohli instead. Her new book, Finding Peace in Difficult Times, has been published speedily because of how relevant it is for the current situation in which we find ourselves.


As we discuss here, activism and wellness are not mutually exclusive. Meditation can help you to see what is – help you to see and feel your own feelings, but also can bring you to see what is happening, what is unjust, in the world. It doesn’t have to be a tool of accepting whatever happens and letting it go. It can make you stronger as you commit to new action to change things.

Divya also has a fascinating publishing story - she worked on various novels that didn't work until this book found her. She talks about how her book found her, and the usefulness of working with a writing coach.

You can find more about her at: You can also find her online at her Facebook page.
