Neera Singh is mother of two daughters 13 and 8 years old. She lives with her husband of 17 years in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Neera completed her Lifeways training in 2011 and as a result began her own outdoor Lifeways inspired program, Roots of Wonder, on a verdant 3 acres of urban forest and gardens adjacent to her house. Child of a sociologist father who immigrated from India, and an Irish-American activist mother who volunteered for Kennedy’s brand new Peace Corps in 1967 in Ghana, Neera has lived a life of constantly “crossing borders”. Her interests in conflict resolution, social justice, nonviolence theory and practice, antiracism and cross-cultural peace efforts have led her to homeschool her own children and dedicate herself to supporting families in building the healthy vibrant family culture they desire. Neera has worked as a Parent-Child group leader, lead Caregiver, Chef, and currently Director of Roots of Wonder for the past 6 years. Neera has an undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies and Political Science from Whitman College, a secondary school teaching certificate, and a Master’s in Education from the University of Hawaii. In addition to her professional pursuits, Neera is an avid flower and vegetable gardener, animal-lover, and seeker of truth.
