LET­TER OF THE MONTH

MiNDFOOD (New Zealand) - - INBOX -

A heart­felt thank you to Atira Tan for shar­ing her life and work with us through the words of Elli Ja­cobs and the pho­tog­ra­phy of Ar­terium An­gledal (‘Women of Value’, Au­gust is­sue). Thank you for shar­ing your own per­sonal strug­gles in a bare and hon­est way, and for show­ing how to gen­uinely and sen­si­tively work with peo­ple from an­other cul­ture who have a his­tory of trauma. I am ever-grate­ful to Atira for her holis­tic heal­ing ap­proach for oth­ers and her­self; she truly has a strong, pos­i­tive and sensitive self. Recog­nis­ing her own hard­ships and the need for self-care in the con­text of work­ing for oth­ers is truly in­spi­ra­tional.

Sarah
