Trained as an Immunologist, Monica realised her calling was not scientific research while she was doing her PhD in Autoimmunity from University of Zurich.
Her seeking to integrate science and spirituality, pulled her towards many masters and gurus and she found herself getting drawn towards holistic living & education.
She got a wake up call from her Being through cancer that visited her in 2014. Cancer brought her in touch with her own essence and revealed that her true calling was the calling of her Heart.
It was like she was born again.
She now lives a life immersed deeply and fearlessly in all the movements of life and spills out the messages the inner being manifests, through people, life situations and challenges, seeming tragedies and diseases. Universe is 'for us' and not against us. If one has faith in a loving universe, all the difficulties are nothing but a way to progress deeper within and exploring newer fields within oneself.
A relentless explorer, She feels blessed to be on this journey within, hand in hand with fellow travellers.
Taru was born into a joint family, with 4 kids and from a young age, relationships and human dynamics have been a source of self-inquiry and growth for her.
She has an itch of knowing more than what meets the eye and keeps rigorously questioning the ways we are asked to live. In search for meaning and to find inner peace, she has experimented with quite a bit in life.
An Occupational therapist from Delhi University and a management graduate from the University of Notre Dame, she has held jobs spreading over various industries. Wearing several hats, she now runs a travel company called When in India Tours.
She is a believer, a seeker and an adventurer.
Going through a Near Death Experience taught her how to live light. And losing someone very close to her, changed her relationship with death and pain, helping her to experience the vastness within.
The events, brought her focus back to the most important thing ~ her own self. Paradoxically, she realised that when we focus on our own inner being and are able to love ourselves unconditionally, rest all naturally falls into place.
Make of us the hero warriors we aspire to become. May we fight successfully the great battle of the future that is to be born, against the past that seeks to endure; so that the new things may manifest and we may be ready to receive them. ( CWM 12:112 )
