About Shani

Writing is in my blood. 

I am the creator of Journey Writing Circles—a healing writing practice that I offer online, in person as well as to organizations. 

I am the author of the award-winning, coming-of-age, Being Ana: a memoir of anorexia nervosa—published by She Writes Press in 2017. 

I have written human interest feature stories, columns, and travelogues for newspapers such as The Mail & Guardian and The Sunday Times.

I have worked as a content producer, copywriter, copy editor, blogger, marketing manager and communications specialist.

I am South African/Israeli, a yogini of 25 years, and I live with my 10-year-old son in a semi-rural co-housing community  in Colorado.
