I volunteer time for many social causes and projects, which I call, heartwork (because they tug my heart and fill me with a sense of purpose). Some of these social causes are homeless animals’ adoption via the Blue Cross of India, Chennai; Literacy projects in rural India; Fundraising for the IAHV (International Association of Human Values); Teaching an online Meditation Breath workshop on the weekends.
