Inner Peacekeeping For Global Peacekeepers

Screen Shot 2016-02-20 at 2.28.04 PMAs a human rights lawyer for the United Nations, Amandine Roche worked for 15 years in conflict zones under challenging circumstances. She realized that many of the humanitarians were suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and had inadequate resources to deal with it. In her TEDx talk she makes the case for how ancient wisdom traditions such as yoga and meditation can help humanitarians on the front lines to avoid burnout, stress and depression.

She has worked in more than 20 electoral processes in post-conflict countries, mainly in Afghanistan for the last decade, with a focus on civic education, democratization, gender and youth empowerment.

After the kidnapping and assassination of her colleagues, Amandine was evacuated from Kabul. She recovered from her traumas and found her inner peace in India where she studied the ancient techniques of meditation and yoga with spiritual Masters. Once she realized that outer peace can only be created through inner peace, she returned to Kabul to set up the Amanuddin Foundation and to develop an inner peace keeping program for global peace keepers.
