Mona Haydar is a poet, activist, earth lover, performance artist and a tireless God-enthusiast. She practices a life of sacred activism, poetry, contemplation and advocacy for living gently upon the Earth. She teaches classes and retreats on mindfulness and Islamic spirituality, leads anti-Islamophobia trainings, and performs her poetry. Mona grew up in Flint, Michigan, and has since lived in Damascus, Syria, and the mountains of Northern New Mexico at the Lama Foundation. In late 2015, Mona and her husband Sebastian set up a stand in Cambridge, Massachusetts, offering free coffee and donuts and a chance to “Ask A Muslim.” Their simple booth garnered the attention of NPR, Al Jazeera, The Boston Globe among other media outlets, and gave her the chance to speak in classrooms, churches, universities and community organizations across the country. She is living in New York City, working towards her Master’s in Divinity at Union Theological Seminary. Mona helps to grow a more universal love with her activism, writing, performing and teaching.
