About Adela

Adela Sandness holds a Ph.D. from the École Pratique des Hautes Études of the Sorbonne in Paris where she studied ancient Indian, or Vedic, cosmology and, in particular, the goddess Sarasvatī. She is a professor at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada, where she teaches mindfulness, Hinduism and Buddhism. Having served for over a decade in leadership roles in mindfulness practice communities, including two years of practice living in a Buddhist monastery, she brings ancient wisdom and her depth of practice experience - along with stories, humor, compassion, care, and a healthy dose of common sense - to help us rediscover ourselves and our relationships and re-think together today's world.
