Samara Selden

Religious Studies Class of 2013

Educational Background

B.A. Religious Studies & Psychology, Cornell University



Samara recently traveled Southeast Asia, researching different types of mind-body healing, spirituality and wellness, religious sites, local customs, and stories. " What can we learn from cultures whose approach to healing and medicine are different from our own? How do our daily rituals shape our perspectives on life and happiness?  How can we integrate whole-body wellness into our daily lives?  How can we focus our attention and actions on things that matter most to us and move past the constant distractions that stand in our way?  How can we make wellness a habit instead of an afterthought?
