Emily Hine

Social Change Agent. Peace, Compassion and Mindfulness Teacher. Inspirational Writer.

Emily Hine is a social change agent. She has designed and implemented large-scale campaigns that have raised more than $150 million for nonprofit organizations. Emily spent many years at Microsoft Corporation before 911 and profound meditation experiences inspired her to leave Corporate America and dedicate her life to advancing peace and compassion in the world.

In 2008, Emily served on the Executive Team for Seeds of Compassion, a global event with the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu that gathered 150,000 people and contributed to the current worldwide compassion movement.

While moderating a panel discussion, Emily made a commitment to the Dalai Lama to expand compassion education. She is fulfilling her promise, in part, by hosting The Global Compassion Summit – a free online educational program designed to further engage a global audience in the compassion movement. She also became a Certified Compassion Cultivation Training™ (CCT) Teacher from the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE), at Stanford University, and teaches the eight-week protocol. She is a faculty member of The Shift Network’s Peace Ambassador Training and she leads mindfulness workshops for businesses interested in creating more harmonious work environments. She has studied nonviolent communication (NVC) and Vipassana/mindfulness meditation.

Emily is also an entertaining and poignant writer, who provides hope, humor and practical strategies for individuals who are suffering. Her forthcoming book, Holy Sit, chronicles her story of healing from stage II cancer naturally, without surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. She also hosts an inspirational Holy Sit Facebook page where she writes about optimum health, spiritual awakening and finding inner peace and compassion in a chaotic world. www.emilyhine.com
