Welcome

Christine Toomey

 

“There are lessons for life on every step of The Saffron Road. Christine Toomey, long-time foreign correspondent and truth-teller to the powerful, travels in search of women from the Buddhist ways of dispassion, mindfulness and calm. She shows that philosophies are sometimes best understood from a suitcase, writing as she learns and learning as she writes.”

– Peter Stothard, author of Alexandria: The Last Nights of Cleopatra
