About the Author

Madhu B. Wangu Ph. D. [email protected] Madhu B. Wangu is an author, artist and the facilitator of Writing Meditation for Mindful Writers. She has a doctorate in the phenomenology of Religion from the University of Pittsburgh (1988) and a post-doctoral Fellowship from Harvard University (1989-1991). For fifteen years she taught Hindu and Buddhist art history at the University of Pittsburgh, Rhode Island College and Wheaton College. She joined Pennwriters Organization in 2005 and served as a Board member from 2007-10012. ( Madhu Wangu has written two books about goddesses, Images of Indian Goddesses: Myths, Meanings and Models, (Abhinav Publications, New Delhi, 2003) discusses the meaning of goddess myths and symbols. A Goddess is Born, her doctoral dissertation, (Spark Publishers, 2002) details the social, political, and cultural meanings of the Kashmiri goddess, Khir Bhavani. Madhu has written two extensively illustrated books for young adults, Hinduism (Facts on File, Inc., New York, 1991) and Buddhism (Facts on File, Inc., New York, 1993). She has held five one-person shows of oil paintings and prints and has exhibited with art groups in India as well as USA. Madhu has an abiding interest in the teachings of Asian religions as they relate to the theories of Carl G. Jung and the Jungian school. As a scholar of the phenomenology of religions, she finds the vast inner world of human psyche & Self as absorbing as the ultimate reality and human soul as taught by Asian thought. More than two decades of painting, meditating and writing has led her to write about the psychic world, its expression in visual arts and literature and the aesthetic pleasure one derives from these. Her debut collection of stories, Chance Meetings and her novel, An Immigrant Wife are to be released in 2015. She leads a weekly "Mindful Writers Group." Currently she is working on her second novel, The Last Suttee. She lives in Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA with her husband Manoj, a robotics engineer. They have two daughters-an avionics engineer and a pediatrician. Madhu and Manoj are blessed with two grandchildren.
