Wendy Kagan has penned stories on everything from mindfulness and gene therapy to home birth and organic gardening. Wide-ranging and divergent, her stories often circle back to one central theme: healing. The healing of our bodies, minds, emotions, spirits, and of course, our planet.

Who says an English degree (or two) isn’t worth much? Wendy was grateful for a chance to hone her writing craft at Vassar College (undergrad) and Columbia University (grad). She comes from a family with three generations of doctors—yet she tempers her empirical roots with the right-brain practices of yoga, meditation, and Eastern spiritual philosophies.

These days Wendy lives and writes in New York’s Hudson River Valley. On a fine morning, she might set up her laptop outdoors to type in the company of trees, wild turkeys, and the occasional black bear. Thursday evenings you’ll find her teaching vinyasa yoga to the dedicated students at Euphoria Yoga in Woodstock. In her most important job of all, Wendy is the mother of two spirited girls, Amelie and Jade. A vegetarian since 18, she’s on a quest to achieve wildly good health without losing a sense of humor and joy.
