I was interviewed for and am briefly mentioned in this TIME Magazine article on the pros and cons of egg freezing. The technology has improved significantly since I went through this 5 years ago, but as my own story clearly demonstrates - there are no guarantees.
More women are counting on egg freezing to prolong their fertility. But is science really on their side?

Yoga + Volunteering + Travel: What could be better??!
Join the Hope Foundation, my favorite non-profit, this fall for a week of practicing yoga and meditation, teaching yoga to street kids, and opening your eyes to a world of suffering - which YOU can help alleviate. I would go myself if I could!

Honored to be featured in Urban Family, discussing our love for hiking, surfing and the great outdoors - now with twin babies!
Emerging from the last wave she rode at the end of a three-month long writing and surfing retreat in Costa Rica in 2011, MeiMei Fox caught  a “gorgeous guy” checking her out. “We started talking and never stopped,” she says about her future husband, Kiran Ramchandran.

I find being a parent the ultimate spiritual practice. And the lessons my boys have taught me in their first 5 months of life are applicable to anyone, parent or not. My latest for +The Huffington Post

Friends and ‪#‎Yoga‬ Lovers, I highly recommend YOGA FOR HOPE, a weeklong yoga and volunteering experience in ‪#‎India‬ with my favorite non-profit, The Hope Foundation!!!! Join a wonderful yoga teacher and the inspirational volunteers of HOPE in Calcutta, India, in service of street kids and slum dwellers. It's from Oct 25 - Nov 4, 2015. I would go if not for my little munchkins! I have sponsored a child through HOPE for over 10 years now, and met personally with the fabulous founder Maureen Forrest, one of the most dedicated people I know in terms of making a positive impact on the world. KARMA YOGA, baby! Yoga + Volunteering. What could be better??
Travel to India for healing, growth, inspiration. Practice Yoga, bring its benefits to street children in HOPE projects. Visit: www.hopefoundation.ie

Honored to share my mantra: FEAR LESS, LOVE MORE with the good people at +Fulfillment Daily - an everyday source of inspiration  and happiness backed by scientific research. Remember: This holiday season is really all about LOVE. 
During the holidays, we often fall into the traps of overeating & materialism. Here's the secret to gaining extra joy - but not pounds - during this holiday season!

What is #GivingTuesday? It's about combatting consumerism by putting your spending dollars towards causes and people rather than things!

Give the gift of HOPE this holiday season! Join me in sponsoring a child through the excellent non-profit +HOPE Foundation. For just the cost of a Starbucks a day, you can provide a former street kid/ slum dweller with a loving home, clothing, medical care, and an education. I've been sponsoring Rama (pictured below) since 2004. A wonderful, rewarding, easy way to share holiday JOY and give back ‪#‎GivingTuesday‬.
This past December, I returned to Kolkata for the first time since 2004, this time with my husband, Kiran. Here is our story -- Kiran's photographs, my words -- of poverty, inspirational people, and, ultimately, hope....

Story
Tagline
Architect of Waking Dreams. New York Times Bestselling Author, Speaker, and Life Coach
Introduction
I have been a freelance author and editor of non-fiction health and wellness, spirituality, and psychology books, magazine articles, and blogs for the past 15 years. I contribute a weekly column to the Huffington Post title, "The Life Out Loud." My work has been published in Self Magazine, Stanford Magazine, Forbes.com, MSNBC, MindBodyGreen, BoingBoing, and a variety of other leading print & online magazines. 

Having recently made the move to fiction as an Architect of Waking Dreams, I am currently developing a TV series, two screenplays, and a sci-fi/fantasy Young Adult trilogy in collaboration with my husband, filmmaker Kiran Ramchandran.  

I love working part-time as a life coach, helping my clients achieve their loftiest goals. I have a BA and MA with honors and distinction, Phi Beta Kappa, from Stanford University, both in psychology. In addition, I earned an MA in Counseling Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute, for which I completed a year of supervised therapy with middle school students and their families. 

From January 2010- June 2011, I worked as a social media strategist for the Stanford Alumni Association, engaging our alumni via newly-established Facebook and Twitter accounts. I also do some yoga teaching on the side, and have an Ana Forrest yoga teacher certification. 

I am a passionate, authentic person who believes in making the world a better place on a daily basis (through smiles, hugs, and supporting people), and in a big way (eg, serving on the board of HOPE Foundation; traveling to Haiti to volunteer and leading Karma Yoga retreats with Surf for Life.)

My mantra is: FEAR LESS, LOVE MORE!
